Versailles Guided Tour with Optional Fountain Show

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour and the gardens and musical fountains well worth the money. The tour guides were professional and very organized. I especially appreciated this as I could not believe how many tourists were visiting the palace of Versailles. Their ability to keep all running smoothly was quite impressive.

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour and I really appreciated learning the historical background of the Ile de la Cite, as it provides the visitor to Paris a background for understanding the formation of the city from Roman times, as well as its continued transformation. I was really impressed with the knowledge demonstrated by our guide which made it clear the importance of the island, despite being the location of Notre Dame.

Montmartre and Sacre Coeur Walking Tour in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you like the history of Montmartre area and have an appreciation for art, this tour is really a must. Stephanie was our tour guide and I was very impressed with the depth of information provided--not only the history of the Montmartre area from its beginning; but her knowledge of art history. Also, her knowledge about the various sites and buildings of the area made for a very eclectic tour. This was truly one of the highlights of my Parisian trip. And, of course, if you want to know about the history of the Moulin Rouge, you will learn that too! I highly recommend, it is also quite pretty and unique from the rest of Paris.

Lincoln Assassination Walking Tour in Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This trip was very informative. Our guide Rob braved the bad weather, and even agreed to take us early. His knowledge of the D.C. area, and the historical elements was wonderful and expanded the scope of the tour. Even more, he was more than willing to address specific questions and take us to sites that benefited our discussion.

Quebec City Walking Tour

Quebec City, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I booked this tour only as a last consideration, as while I love walking tours, I was afraid it might be a duplication of the QC sightseeing tour--it wasn't. I highly recommend this tour, even if you are taking other guided tours by bus. The guide, Robert, was bilingual and had a store of knowledge about the history; but also included a lot of contemporary facts and remarks about architecture and other distinctive features. This was a great tour.

Quebec City Sightseeing Tour

Quebec City, Canada

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This tour is worth doing if you have limited time or do not want to take a walking tour. I personally prefer walking tours, as you can see things in greater detail. However, this bus made to crucial stops--at the Plains of Abraham and at the Place Royal, where tourists were allowed to stroll around for 30 minutes. This made the tour far better than it might have been as I found the guide to be just "okay" rather than great. A bonus feature was that everything was spoken in both English and French which may have impacted the ability of the guide to be more personable. Good way to see things from a broader perspective than just a tour of the old town. Also enjoyed the stop at the Old Grocery Store.

Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond Small Group Day Trip from Edinburgh

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a fantastic trip. The guide was knowledgeable and personable, and I especially liked that he took care to make personal conversation with everyone. Beautiful, beautiful scenery and Stirling Castle was wonderful. This trip was a wonderful taste of Scotland and made me want to book the longer, extended day trips or at the very least other one day trips. Highly recommend.

Underground Vaults Walking Tour in Edinburgh

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A very insightful view of the historic vaults and I highly recommend. I was uncertain if I should take the ghost tour in the same area, but both were very good. The nice thing about this vault tour is you could see in greater detail the actual area (as in night it is quite dark).The history is an important part as well.

Edinburgh City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
I did not give this a higher rating only because I did not take the whole bus tour around, my fault and no one else's. Generally, I love the hop-on hop-off buses, because they allow you to get a general overview of the location. Unfortunately, as I usually travel to see specific things, I often do not see the whole tour. I must say this particular bus information and route (what I heard of it) was very good and very informative. I found it one of the best I had been on. I just wish I could have made it all the way to Holyrood! Would recommend any traveler to Edinburgh doing this.

Secrets of Edinburgh's Royal Mile Afternoon Walking Tour with Optional Edinburgh Castle Tour

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a very good tour and I particularly liked that we had the ability to see Parliament House, which generally would not have been accessible. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, but as my particular interest was in the origin of the closes and a tour of them, I had somehow expected them to be covered in greater detail. This is not a criticism, just a suggestion as they are quite fascinating in and of themselves. Very much liked everything, though and the information about the development of the New Town was good.
