Tour/Activity

Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

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

My Review
Very professional, friendly and informative guide, however we saw very little of Mount Fuji because of the weather. Note, the tour finishes at one of the main railway stations and you need to make your own way back to your hotel. This caused concern for some of the other travellers on the tour. With Mount Fuji out of the equation, the tour basically consisted of being taken around various tourist shops. Recommendation would be, only take this tour after checking the weather forecast.

My Review
Good overview of Vilnius - unfortunately our visit to the interesting church coincided with Sunday mass! Could have done without the obligatory sales stop at the Amber Museum, although no real hard sell.

Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

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

My Review
Was an OK tour. Didn't learn that much about Hong Kong Island between the various sales opportunities: ride on a sampan at your expense, shopping at the peak, jewellery shop, Stanley Market. Did learn it takes 4 minutes to go through the cross-harbour tunnel.

Macau Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Good tour to see something a little different. Portuguese influence is very pretty but only formed a small element of the tour walk from the ruins of St. Paul's church via Senado Square to Jackie Chan's casino. Welcome break from the commercialism and hard sell of Hong Kong. Guide was quite interesting.

Interesting tour with a friendly and informative guide. Excellent overview of Helsinki and stopped off at sites slightly away from the city centre that would easily be missed if exploring on your own.

Bangkok, Thailand

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

My Review
Tour was good, however, seemed a bit rushed. Also, bear in mind that not all buildings are open at the weekend, so is better to do during the week.

Singapore Zoo Breakfast with Orangutans

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
World class zoo. Worth noting that the tour mainly provides transport to the zoo and nothing extra. May be worth considering arranging this yourself if you are the sort who can spend a long time in a zoo. Also is in same location as night safari, so could combine the two trips if organising yourself. Taxi to zoo around 30 SGD.

Singapore Zoo Night Safari Tour with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore, Singapore

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

My Review
Definitely worth doing, though you don't get to see everything as the tour does not allow enough time for this. Would be better off arranging your own transport to the night safari complex which is in same location as the zoo as this would allow enough time to see everything. Taxi to zoo around 30 SGD.

My Review
Definitely worth doing as Raffles is a must-visit location in Singapore. Extra items in the tour such as a pewter factory visit and boat ride add value to this.

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

My Review
Tour description suggests that the tour is historical. My experience was that the historical element of the tour was rather rushed and the tour focussed too much on shopping and photo opportunities within the city.
