Excellent service for 4 of us - a very pleasant and obliging driver. She arrived at our Hotel on schedule and helped us with our luggage. The drive to the airport was smooth and pleasant.

Skip the Line: Van Gogh Museum and Amsterdam Canal Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There was some confusion as to where to change our voucher for tickets - even the attendant outside the Van Gogh Museum didn't know where we should go!
We really enjoyed the museum - not huge, but well laid out, and in the process of being expanded.
The Hop-On Hop Off canal bus is an excellent and leisurely way to experience Amsterdam, especially since there are 3 specific routes - limited commentary in English included. The services take you to more places that the one hour canal cruises do, so if you have the time, skip the canal cruises and take the canal bus.

Amsterdam Canals Cruise with Dinner Cooked On Board

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had to exchange our voucher for tickets at a kiosk nearby to the departure point, but other than that this tour was excellent and better than we had anticipated. Despite being high season (July), the boat was only 2/3rds full - the rainy evening may have been a deterring factor to some potential customers. The crew were friendly, polite and obliging. We really enjoyed the extended cruise through the canals (glass roofed boat). The food was excellent (the 4 of us all had fish); hats off to the chef!
One of the highlights of our visit to Amsterdam.

Highlights of Amsterdam Sightseeing Cruise

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This frequently conducted cruise was O.K. - good for those with very limited time - but it seemed a bit robotic. We had expected to be given headsets or earpieces, but instead the commentary as we passed by each point of interest was broadcast in 4 languages.
The following day we took the Hop On / Hop Off canal bus in conjunction with another attraction, and found it to be a much more worthwhile option - more leisurely of course, with longer, more interesting routes and limited English commentary (also much better for photography).

Our driver was waiting for us in arrivals with a placard bearing our name. He was very pleasant and obliging. He spoke good English and escorted the 4 of us to his vehicle and helped us with our luggage. A smooth, pleasant ride into Budapest. Recommended.

Small-Group Tour: Ston and Korcula Island Day Trip from Dubrovnik with Wine Tasting

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a long, but interesting day. We spent the first hour picking people up from various locations, and the order of pick up seemed to be back to front! Our driver was excellent and very considerate of the needs of those on the tour. The tour guide was also very good.
The small boat on the short ride back was definitely overloaded and many passengers (not only those on our tour) expressed such sentiments. Korcula was very interesting. Glad we made the effort.

A mixed group from North America and Australia. Our very knowledgeable guide took us on a walking tour through several districts, including an extended visit to the market, which everyone found of interest. We visited 3 very different bars, providing us with an excellent introduction to tapas.

My Review

Being out of season (January) my wife and I had our guide Niko all to ourselves, and he was very accommodating and flexible, especially with timing. Most of the main sites were included and we ended up at Casa Mila (Gaudi's amazing apartment block) where we had the option to leave when we wanted.

Provence Countryside Small Group Day Trip

Nice, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a good tour taking in St. Paul de Vence (amazing), Gourdon (equally amazing), Grasse and Cannes. I would have preferred to have eliminated the candy factory and Grasse, and have spent more time in St. Paul de Vence and Cannes.

Monaco and Eze Small Group Day Trip from Nice

Nice, France

My Rating

My Review
This was another good tour taking in a panoramic view of Nice (wonderful), Eze (amazing), Monaco/Monte Carlo and the Riviera. I would have preferred to have eliminated the perfume factory visit (though my wife liked it) and spent more time in Eze and Monaco.
