Sydney Opera House Guided Walking Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating

My Review

was a good tour. didn't like the fact that we weren't allowed to take any pictures inside the opera house stages, only the hall ways in between. i'm happy i booked this one and not the private behind the scenes tour.

Sydney Day Tour with Optional Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Got to drive across the Harbor bridge and get some good pictures of the Opera House and Sydney from the other side of the river. Afterwards though got to see alot but we didn't get to get out of the van so it was a bit upsetting as we couldn't get any decent pictures. If you don't do the lunch cruise you end up having to sit around for 2 hours. We actually decided to skip the 2nd half of the tour in the afternoon and just walked around ourselves as we didn't want to just ride around in a van all afternoon. I would only recommend this tour if you already did everything in Sydney as you get to Manly and some of the outer places.

Sydney Taronga Zoo General Entry Ticket and Wild Australia Experience

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The zoo was nice. Unfortunately it rained. The Wild Australia Experience was good as it was only the 2 of us. So we had our own zoo keeper. Unfortunately didn't get to really touch the kangaroos and koalas quite like i was expecting. Got to see some some other cool Australian wildlife, and holding a Feathertail glider was really cool. Price was a bit much, but i'm hoping it's because the extra money goes to the zoo and conservation of the animals.

Waitomo Caves and Rotorua Day Trip from Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Nice trip. Unfortunately I would have liked to have spent more time in Rotorua as on this tour you don't have enough time, only an hour when they recommend you spend 3 hours at the park. However being it was only a day trip and everything else that was included i understand. Less time with the sheep and more time at Rotorua would have been my choice. The glow worm cave is wonderful, though you can't take pictures inside the cave =( ... But the glow worms are beautiful... Rotorua is interesting, and you get to learn about the Maori as well. Definitely worth this trip!

Rio de Janeiro Half-Day Walking Tour

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great tour. At least half of it was churches though, although they were very nice. Guide was very informative but it seemed a bit rushed. Though we did cover alot of ground. Got to see much or Rio which I didn't think about before hand. Definitely worth while if you already saw the major highlights (Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf etc) and are looking for something more to see in Rio.

Khao Yai National Park and Elephant Ride Day Trip from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

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

My Review
The elephant ride was great. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend this tour. We spent over 2 hours in the morning trying to gather everyone before we even left. We drove an hour to a street market which was alright, then left drove another 1-2 hours to an Ox Cart ride. That was a good experience but unfortunately it rained. We drove into Khao Yai finally and went to the Hew Narok waterfall. This was a nice walk back in, but we only spent 5-10 minutes at the waterfall and walked back. After this unfortunately we didn't have time to stop at any of the overlooks. I asked our guide about stopping for a minute to take a few pictures but he said we didn't have time. We then proceeded to lunch and the elephant ride, after which we drove almost 3 hours back to Bangkok. I just felt it was alot of time spent driving, and 2 hours in the morning waiting in a hotel lobby was not very fun at all. It got good reviews and I decided to do it based on that prior to my trip, just make sure you have enough time to see everything else in Bangkok.

This tour was the best one I did while I was in Bangkok. I had sufficient time at everything we went to, our tour guide was really great and informative and the floating market I believe was worth seeing.

Bangkok Airport Shared Departure Transfer

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
Getting back to the airport will of course be easier then getting picked up. It might be worth looking into a taxi as it might be a bit cheaper. Otherwise it went very good. Picked us up on time and didn't have any problems.

It was very easy to find the guy waiting to pick us up. It went very smoothly and was much better then trying to deal with finding a taxi which wouldn't try to rip me off.

Bangkok Temples Tour including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
Really if you have a very short amount of time then I'd say do this. Otherwise take taxis and get to the locations yourself, it's easy enough to do just make sure to use metered taxis, tuk tuks will negotiate prices and almost always be much more expensive then a taxi. I traveled around Bangkok myself for 5 days. We got rushed through the temples and didn't have enough time at each location. We even got stuck in traffic for an hour and a half and by the time we got to the Marble Temple it was closed! I should have just stayed with the reclining Buddha instead of sitting in the bus in traffic.

Bangkok's Grand Palace Complex and Wat Phra Kaew Tour

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
This one might be worth doing. I almost had enough time around the complex. I will say the guide was great on this one. Unfortunately the time spent explaining is less time you have to walk around and take pictures. So it's more of what your priorities are. If you want the explanations of everything it's great.
