Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Athens, Greece

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

My Review
This tour was disappointing, & it could have been so much better. The Acropolis was closed when we were on the tour. We later found out that this was due to a strike & we would have appreciated finding this out earlier, so after doing the stops that had been planned & were great to see we went to a museum in the Acropolis' place. First off they needed a better substitute place to go, as a tour of a museum was the opposite of what we had booked. Second as the museum was packed we couldn't actually hear our guide, some sort of speaker headphone system would have helped. Third we were walked around at lightening speed for 1 & a half hours walking past many interesting relics & then given 30 minutes for ourselves, the other way around would have been better, especially as we were travelling with a child. While our guide knew what she was talking about, she had to give the information in 2 languages, which left us missing some of what she was saying as it could take awhile to realise that she was speaking English again. Then to finish off the tour our guide just hopped off of the bus, not letting us know what was happening & leaving us to try to work it out with the bus driver who only spoke Greek.

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Due to our own error we missed out on the boat section of this tour. So with that in mind we found the walking section of the tour disappointing. The main reason for this is that we only spent 5 minutes at tops inside the Basilica & then went on to walk through 3 Campos on the way to the Rialto Bridge which took 1 - 1.5 hours. On the other side of the coin, though, the guide was wonderful & gave us a great amount of information.

Cairo Airport Private Departure Transfer

Cairo, Egypt

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Like the arrival service, this was great for as we didn't have to worry about a single aspect of the trip. From the company letting us know the best time to pick us up in relation to when our flight left to our great driver, to our escort helping us with the airport - a big deal when travelling with a 2 yr old - everything went well & without a hitch for us.

Cairo Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Cairo, Egypt

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It made arriving in Egypt so much easier as we were helped from the moment we walked into the airport with our entry visas, clearance cards, etc., to when we were dropped off at the hotel. The ease of our entry really gave a positive start to our holiday.

Private Tour: Alexandria Day Trip from Cairo

Cairo, Egypt

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We had a fantastic day & could not have asked for a better guide or driver. Even though there was quite a drive from Cairo to Alexandria, it is a great way to see some of the countryside & to have a rest before all the sightseeing. We loved seeing a different aspect of Egyptian history.

Private Tour: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Sakkara

Cairo, Egypt

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What an amazing way to see the sights, learn the history & to have some inside help on the way. Through the guide's knowledge, we were able to enter the Great Pyramid - we were unaware that you could & then to also find out that numbers are limited, & she was so kind as to look after our 2 year old son, so we could get the full enjoyment. We also have a huge number of great photos of the 3 of us at all locations of the tour as our guide not only took our photos, but she was able to take a fantastic array of photos including those 'must do' shoots.

Prague in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Being winter in Prague, we were the only people on this tour & for this we had the chance to get so much more detailed information. Our guide was wonderful & we learnt so much more about Prague than we ever dreamt. While a lot of this tour was driving by the main sites that we wanted to see, we thought that was great as we then knew where we had to go to see everything. For this reason, I would recommend doing the tour at the beginning of your visit to Prague.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide gave us so much information about everything from basic tour information to distances between each section of the tour - very handy when travelling with a 2 year old - to the most detailed history of each of our stops. I found that because the tour runs like clockwork & we were lucky with traffic, we had so much time to explore each area that we were at. We also had enough free time at Windsor Castle & Bath that we could explore as we pleased & grab a quick bite to eat - as there is no set time to eat on the trip that was handy.
