Tigre Delta Day Trip from Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I was picked up from my hotel lobby by Cynthia, our excellent tour guide: insightful, funny. It took about 40 minutes to pick up the remaining guests from their downtown hotels, and then we hit the road to El Tigre.

We drove through the city into the Province of Buenos Aires, and for some reason we stopped in San Isidro. There was a small mini-mall of souvenir shops and a cathedral, but really this is just a tourist trap. I would have rather gone straight to El Tigre.

Because I was the only English-speaker on the tour, I felt as if I got a customized tour just for me. The boat ride on El Tigre was interesting: you see the riverside communities, floating amenities (such as a grocery boat), vegetation. The boat operator's guide was multilingual and well-informed. They served free alfajores as snacks and sold bottled water and beer. The boat ride lasted just under an hour.

Each tour bus has a camera operator taking video of the tourists in the group, hoping to sell videos. I don't think anyone in our group bought one. The cameraman was entertaining, though, and helpful as he took photos for people.

On the bus ride back, we took the autoroute; so it went much faster. There were 3 drop-off points in central locations. Roberto was an excellent driver.

A half-day trip to El Tigre was enough. In retrospect, I think I would have saved time taking the train myself to El Tigre. But Cynthia made the experience worthwhile.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Our guide, Ursula, was outstanding - insightful and entertaining. Would have liked more time to enjoy Bath. Wonderful to see Stonehenge so close. Use the travel time to eat and rest so when you arrive at the sights, you have lots of energy to go through them quickly.

Skip the Line: Buckingham Palace Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The palace is lovely, but I'm not sure it's worth the price of admission. If you are going to Windsor Palace, I think it's safe to skip Buck House. Certainly see the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, British Museum, British Library and St. Paul's Cathedral first.

Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A bike tour is the best way to see everything at Versailles, especially the spectacular gardens. Loved the picnic by the Grand Canal. Our guide was fun and had lots of interesting info to make history come alive. Just a perfect way to end a week of touring in Paris!
