Amsterdam Canals Candlelight Cruise Including Wine and Cheese

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of the best parts of our european tour. Although the wine and cheese is not much to speak of. However, the friends we met were delightful. The "walk" through the red light district was enlightening but not for the conservative at heart.

The tour was good but the Berlin tour does not have that much to look at. I would not recommend it.

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Walking Tour

My Review

Worth every penny. Our guide was amazing despite having injured her leg previously and did the tour on crutches. She was wonderful. A very long walk over many hours but how could I complain if our guide was on crutches!

Berlin Dinner in the Dark Experience

Berlin, Germany

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Interesting. My wife was so uncomfortable with the darkness part we had to leave. I loved it and wished we could have stayed. We actually had the same meal in the light. Very overpriced but worth the experience.

Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I think this tour was much better the the Paris hop off hop on tour. I have done the hop off hop on bus tour all over the world and Paris takes last place. So this tour was a wonderful alternative. Highly recommended. However, most of the trip is in the light. My favorite parts was the arc de triomphe, Louvre hotel, and the e tower. The bus is quite nice but we got the 2nd floor front row seats. I would hurry to get these seats because if you get stuck in the back, it may be less appealing.

Paris Paradis Latin Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Definitely a wonderful and entertaining show but not the conversative. Most of the show involves topless women who weigh 90lbs. I would recommend it if you can look past this detail.

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Horrible. Definitely not worth it. I have been on the hop on hop off tours all over the world and Paris takes last place. I could walk faster and it provided very little information on such an amazing city. Since passangers can buy tickets at any stop and the only staff is the buss driver, this makes each stop 15 minutes or longer. The bus driver has to sell tickets to all 5, 10, or 20 people in line which takes forever. Many of the tours over point out this famous cafe and that famous clothing store. the only one somewhat interesting is that has the tower. I would not recommend this at all. Take the illumination tour instead.

Paris Montmartre Wine Tasting Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Quite expensive for only tasting 3 small glasses of wine (which really only cost 3euros). No snacks were included. Our guide was lovely and provided information on Paris in general which was nice. However, I would not recommend it. You'd be better off finding a wine shop that provides tasting testing and you'd walk away with a very small bill (20 euros).

Madrid Bike Tour

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful. Overall pretty easy bike trip. I'm not the bike type at all and was a little worried. However, I made it alive. Wonderful tour and a great way to see madrid. Our guide was friendly and helpful. He allowed us to stop along the way to see some sights while he watched the bikes. He even bought us a few beers although I wish it wasn't right before riding up the hills. Most of the trip was downhill until the end. I would definitely reocmmend this trip!

Flamenco Show at Torres Bermejas

Madrid, Spain

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

My Review

I've seen flamenco before in Madrid and elsewhere. I think this was the least well done. One of the female dancers was unprofessional and making faces while the other female dancer was dancing. I think a few of them were new so they did not appear confident and made numerous errors. Service was terrible. One drink was included which they provided but then never returned to see if we'd like anything else. Towards the end we even saw a cockroach by our table. Please go see flamenco just not here.

Madrid Tapas Night Walking Tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful! Definitely worth every penny. We were in a crowd of 8-10 or so. It was quite fun and I'd recommend doing it. Even though our guide was actually scottish, he lived in madrid for 10 years. Most of the food was wonderful and I think we got a great selection for the price.

New York City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
I have been on many hop off, hop on tours from Madrid to San Francisico. All of which were amazing and well worth the time and price. All of these trips had an audio tour while you rode along. So the information in the tour was consistent--no matter what tour you were on and in 8 or so different languages. However, in NYC they only had live tour guides, who ranged dramatically in entertainment, comprehension and English speaking skills. My girlfriend is a non-native English speaker, and she couldn't understand 80 percent of the tour guides. I am native and couldn't understand about 25 percent of what they said. We had about 7 tour guides on the uptown and downtown tour. The guides ranged from terrible, boring and impossible to understand to oustanding and fascinating. The one gentlemen on the uptown tour spoke to us in a clear, intelligent manner and gave us insightful details into the area. Once we found him, we refused to get off the bus despite our schedule because we wanted to listen to the whole tour over because we didn't get anything the first time. We, of course, tipped him well. We didn't tip anyone else. Overall, I wouldn't do the trip again. Regarding all the trips that I've been on, this tour ranks dead last. This is entirely due to the live tour guides and the lack of audio. I would recommend for the tour company to invest in a proper audio system.

Excellent tour. Madrid has a lot of historic buildings that are beautiful to see. The ear phones stink but they work. The tour was sometimes confusing because I couldn't locate the actual building they were talking about but otherwise it is highly recommended.
