Architecture Tour of Moscow's Metro and Kolomensoye Estate

Moscow, Russian Federation

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Do the tour of the stations - that was awesome!! Natalia was our guide and she gave us loads of info, pointed things out and guided us to the best stations. Visiting the Kolomensoye Estate was not worth it. When booking the trip I did not realize that the Wooden Palace I wanted to see was actually destroyed many many years ago!!

St Petersburg Walking City Tour

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

You simply cannot visit St Petersburg without doing a walking tour. Our guide - Marianna - made the history of Russia come alive and helped us to understand and appreciate what we saw. She even booked lunch for us at a lovely Russian restaurant. It is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes - but it was worth every step.

Small-Group Amsterdam Bike Tour

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was freezing cold on the day of our trip and I wanted to cancel, but was glad that I didn't. Once on the bike it was not cold! It gave me an overview of Amsterdam and it was especially nice to drive through the Rijksmuseum. If I could turn back the clock, I would do this tour on the day I arrive as it gave me a good overview of everything so that I could decide to which of the areas I want to go back to. It was easy to cycle and you can do this even if you are not fit at all.

Capri Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It is was very long and tiring trip to do from Rome. My main reason for going was to see the Blue Grotto but because of bad weather it was closed. A REAL disappointment! We replaced it with a tour of Capri - an island worth visiting, it is beautiful there. Beware: it was freezing so even though you are going to a beautiful island . . . dress for a very warm if you go in December.

Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

Our guide was not nice - cannot even remember his name. Did not like his attitude with the group or in how he explained things to us. I did the same tour a few years ago so I could compare the information and experience. It is a good tour to do to get an overview of the main things in Rome - which are far apart from each other. So, you must do this tour if you want to get an idea of what is going on, but I hope you get another guide . . .

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

My Review

This was ons of the highlighs of our entire holiday! Reason 1: Our guide (Carina) was the best guide I have ever had - she was Fantastic! Reason 2: Getting into the Vatican this early was worth every extra cent we spent. Thousands of people visit it every day but being there this early allowed me to take some beautiful photographs without the crouds and we had a special, more quiet time with our FAB guide. I recommend this tour (and Carina) very highly!
