I amsterdam Card - City Pass for Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

My Review
The first day we didn't get much use from it due to the poor map provided. We took a very long time with a long walk to fiind the canal boat due to poor map. However the second day we bought a good map with tram routes on it, and managed to get to three museums and a park. The discount tickets were useless as the restaurants would not honour them, One said they would, but after a 40 minute wait we hadn't received our soup when people who arrived long after us were eating main courses. I asked the waiter and he said we would have our meal in 10 minutes. !0 minutes later after a 50 minute wait, the waiter told us they did not have any of the entrees or main courses we had ordered. We left in disgust.

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was an excellent day. We enjoyed the two walking tours included - the London Legends and Jack the Ripper. The guide was knowledgable and entertaining. We didn't use the bus much, as the roads were closed due to a fun run, and we had to buy underground train tickets to get around. The 2 bus rides we had were good, as was the guide. As we only had a one day tour, we didn't have time to use the river cruise tickets. The 2 day ticket would be worthwhile.

Skip the Line: Hampton Court Palace Tickets

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Hampton Court Palace was excellent, although it would have been easier to buy tickets there than to go to the trouble of buying them in advance from Viator. There were no queues on the Saturday we went in July. There is a lot to do at the palace, and the grounds are beautiful. The ticket includes an excellent audio guide. The apartments from Henry's time and more recent monarchs' times are very interesting. The day we went they had a theme of Henry VIII marrying his 6th wife, and we could be guests at various activities throughout the day.

Madame Tussauds and Thames River Sightseeing Cruise

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review
Even with skip the queue tickets for Madame Tussauds, we had to wait in the rain for more than 20 minutes, and then it was very crowded inside - I was knocked over by excited teenagers, and no one helped me up. But the waxworks are worth seeing, and if you don't have a skip the queue ticket in summer the wait is 2 to 3 hours. Apart from the wax models, the train trip through historic wax scenes is very good. The problem with buying a combined waxworks and river cruise ticket is you have to exchange the voucher at the Westminster river terminal before going to Madame Tussauds, and it is quite a long way between the two locations. We wanted to go to the waxworks in the morning as we were told the crowds are even worse in the afternoon. The river cruise to Greenwich was well worthwhile, and we greatly enjoyed the museums and grand buildings at Greenwich, as well as the village.

London in One Day Sightseeing Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a very good tour. It gave us a very good introduction to the large city of London. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our stops at the Changing of the Guard, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London were all excellent. The only negative was the optional pub lunch which the guide recommended. It was the worst meal by far of our trip; overpriced and not what it was supposed to be. Other people on the tour who bought lunch elsewhere in Trafalgar Square had a good lunch for half the price.

Flamenco Show at Torres Bermejas

Madrid, Spain

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

My Review
The show was good, we enjoyed it, and location was central and close to our hotel. The dinner was a complete waste of money. We paid top dollars for it, and it was very poor. It tasted like it was all out of cans, especially the two fruits for dessert. The glass of sherry and bottle of cheap red wine were OK but vastly overpriced. Another problem, the voucher I printed Plaza Espana to swap the voucher for the show tickets. We wasted about 2 hours doing this as it was a long way away, and we took a long time finding the office, had to ask several other shops and walk around the whole square, which was very large. When we found the office, the friendly lady there said we didn't need to swap the voucher for the tickets, just take the voucher to the venue. Why was the voucher wrong?
