Pyrenees Mountains Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a slightly late start and a little less than enthusiastic guide to begin with. But we soon got into it and being a small group (just one other couple) made all the difference.

I loved the little villages and markets we visited along the way but by far the cake (with the cherry on top) goes to the most fabulous landscape, secluded walking trails and mountain springs and waterfalls that make up the Pyrenees.

I would highly recommend doing this on the second day of your Barcelona visit - do a bike/city-bus tour on day one and finish on the beach with a jar of sangria. Doing this wonderful mountain trek the next day really takes the edge off the noise and hubbub of the city from the day before and you certainly wouldn't want to follow it with anything too busy after.

The markets we visited along the way had the most wonderful fresh produce and deli (we washed the fruit under a mountain waterfall in freezing cold yet the freshest and cleanest water I've ever seen).

On the way back we stopped off at an 1100 year old church at the heart of a beautifully quaint little mountain village.

The whole thing for me was probably one of the best excursions I've ever had, and really well worth the money.

Viator Exclusive: Las Vegas Gun Store and Firing Range Package

Las Vegas, Nevada

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

My Review
no problems with the booking made through viator, however the experience was less than enjoyable. Even though my wife and I were looking forward to it, the setup at the venue was less then friendly, the staff were brusk and the interaction with the instructor was very impersonal and rushed. Would look at going else where for a firing range next time.

Le Reve - The Dream at Wynn Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A beautiful show at a fantastic venue - both the theatre (which appears to have been custom made for the show) as well as the hotel Wynn itself were gorgeous and the show was breathtaking. We went for the VIP seats which gave us big comfy arm chairs, complimentary bottle of champaigne and chocolates for my wife and I on our last day of out honeymoon, all served by a waitress assigned to us. Loved the whole experience - a wonderful way to end our honeymoon. Thankyou.

Las Vegas Tandem Skydiving

Las Vegas, Nevada

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

My Review
I have sky-dived before in Miami and enjoyed that immensely. This time round there were too many bookings made by the co and it was very rushed and impersonal. They didn't provide a full kit to all those making a jump - no gloves, hat/helmet, very cheap and ugly goggles. The fall, prior to the parachute opening was very short compared to my Miami jump, even though it was from higher (15k feet). I didn't want a DVD made as I already had one from the first time but refusing one seemed to offend my instructor, as did plenty of other things. Would do it elsewhere next time.

Vegas! The Show at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Fantastic show - great theme, fab music and fantastic performers. Venue left a little something to be desired - rather small and the non-vip seats didn't look very good at all (we went for the VIP ones). Its brand new so might move to bigger venue if well received, which it certainly should be.
