Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Venice, Italy

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

My Review

The gondola ride was really short - a small circle over narrow canal. Serenade sure added some atmosphere to the ride, but the price we paid for two 123.60$ would be enough to hire private gondola for one hour (I asked some gondolier, he said 100 Euro) just for two of us, not shared gondola we had on that 35 min tour. Next time we sure will hire private gondola! There are many gondolas departure points in Venice, so you can chose which part of canals to ride!

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour was nice, but we had very little time to explore around. In Murano we had 5-7 min demonstration of glass horse making at the glass store where prices for everything were at least 1.5 times higher then in Venice for the same goods. I bought a necklace there for 30 Euro and was disappointed to find the same one at Venice for 16 Euro!
Nevertheless if you have very little time in Venice this is probably your only chance to have a glimpse on Murano and Burano.

Bali Monkey Forest, Mengwi Temple and Tanah Lot Afternoon Tour

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour was interesting and the guide very knowledgeable and informative! We had many opportunities to feed monkey and take photos with them. Mengwi Temple is great, glad I saw it! But we were unfortunate to see rice paddies without rice. Also we had not walked around Tahan Lot, only looked at it from a hill. Sunset was not that majestic, but at some moment sun beaming from behind the clouds made a funny face shape and that was a delight! The only minus is that we spent a lot of time in the car - traffic was bad ...
I should mention that water bottle was not provided as initially said, but we were given drinks while testing tapioca.

Barcelona in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
This was my worst tour ever. I simply thrown away 80 Euro (in fact 160 for two of us)! First of all the guide didn't provide much information, second we can't see much from the bus windows, and the worst the bus left Spanish village without us!!! I never would expected that! We were running along many buses looking for our bus for half an hour before I had realized we were left behind! It was our first day in Barcelona and we were simply lucky to find our way back to the city. When we complained at the tour office they blamed us and didn't offer even an apology! We were sooooo angry, our day was ruined completely. Besides the guide was explaining in three different languages that took much time and we had no time to take photos and look around. When I asked about some museums and when they are open the guide could not provide that information, also she was in fact wrong about Gaudi's crypt. On the afternoon tour we had the same guide and guess what - some other people were left behind in G├╝ell park!!! I only hope they found their way ... I would not recommend that tour to anyone. There is "Barcelona Hop-on Hop Off Tour" for like 30 Euro and that is the one to take! They have audio guide in many languages, open roof (so you can see everything) and you can have your own pace to take photos etc. And, of course, you will never be left behind!!!

Moulin Rouge Show Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
We had reserved well in advance with Viator and came to the theater in advance but our seats were assigned in advance too, so there was no point to come early!!! The dinner was OK, but our seats were just under the the stage, so I could see only the legs of the dances, not much of the stage! It is surprising that dances didn't step on me - they were so close! We asked about other seats, but they say the house is full. I can't really say I saw the performance. It was my dream for many years, I had my shot and would not go again. May be others were more lucky?

Mont Saint Michel Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The trip to Mont Saint Michel is a long one, but what you will see is worth it! The abby is amassing! The omelet was very good too, but not our table: we could not see the abby (as add was promising) while having our lunch. The group was international and we had 5 guides who spoke different languages for every language group that was very nice and efficient. Enjoyed the trip!
