Yosemite National Park and Giant Sequoias Trip

San Francisco, California

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Although a very long day - certainly worthwhile doing as the scenery is breathtaking.
But, greatly disappointed in the value for money though as we only had 2 hours in Yosemite which was definately not enough and any additional stops were incredibly rushed. This was because it took us 2 hours to get out of San Fran city centre due to the number of hotel pick ups. Equally it took ages to get back to the hotel at the end of a very long day because of all the return drop off's (would suggest that they have one central meeting point only). Be warned if you expect to take luggage on this trip, there is limited space (at one point, the driver was suggesting that luggage would have to be left behind ! - not great option if you'd booked for an overnight stay!) Potentially a great day out if it was better organised. Also, we were not able to see the giant sequois, which was why a lot of those on the trip had booked - very disappointing. Would recommend taking a warm weather proof coat as even in May when we visited, we had snow and it does get quite cold.

Napa and Sonoma Wine Country Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic trip - organised very well; informative and hospitable driver - clearly qualified with lot's of experience of taking trips out to this area. He knew how to ensure people had a great day out. Number of wineries visited was perfect - and the sample bottles at Sutter winery were excellent value for money. Yountville is a lovely en-route stop - great restaraunts. Would fully recommend this as a great day out.

Private Tour: Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary Day Tour from Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Excellent and very enthusiastic tour driver. Altogether a great day out away from hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur. He thought to buy us peanuts to feed elephants with which further enhanced the experience. Also tried to schedule in a visit to the Deer Park and Aboriginal Village, but sadly these were closed. It took a couple of hours to get to sanctuary, which is currently under refurbishment. So the car park is a bit of a mess. Take a change of clothes if you're doing the swim and a hat for the heat (not much shade). Toilets were exceptionally awful. Remember to take your own toilet roll! Functional car for the journey. Although it slightly tatty and a rather worrying cloud of smoke and burning rubber on the way back. But thankfully we made it!

Historical Malacca Full-Day Tour from Kuala Lumpur including Lunch

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
Chose this tour instead of the private tour as it was cheaper but it ended up with a private tour anyway, as there was only two of us! Very informative driver but very annoying that he should insist on taking us to a leather shop followed by Batik shop, followed by a pewter shop! No thanks! It's a good journey out, a couple of hours but plenty of photo opportunities. Interior of the restaurant for lunch was more impressive than the food itself (don't expect much in quality or quantity). Had to pay for drinks and it was obviously the place to take touring groups en masse! Smart, clean and spacious car for the journey.

Gettysburg Day Trip from Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Excellent trip - have never encountered such informative guides - really new their stuff. The included trip to the restored home of George Washington Shriver is well worth seeing and really intersting. Lunch was fantastic value and a wide choice. Really excellent driver and guides. The diorama - although looking a little tired, gave an excellent perspective on the civil war.

Independent Day Trip to Mount Vernon and Old Town Alexandria from Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
So worthwhile doing this trip - Mount V is beautiful and you get to see really quaint and picturesque towns and countryside on the way. Were also given tickets in advance so that we could be at the front of the queue going in so we were first to view the house. Would have liked more time in Old Alexandria as this looked a really nice place to explore. This trip could easily be extended to a full day.
