Vancouver City Tour Including Capilano Suspension Bridge

Vancouver, Canada

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

My Review

Nice overview of the city of Vancouver. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. This is a good way to sample a little bit of everything and decide where you would like to return and spend more time. The suspension bridge was wonderful, but we didn't have enough time to cross the bridge and do the cliff walk. The lines were long and we had to miss that. I would have given the tour more stars if it weren't for that.

Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was exactly what we hoped for. First, we took the city bus tour and it was very informative. Arrive early if you want to sit on the upper deck because some of the seats on the lower deck have obstructed views. Next, we were taken to the Eiffel Tower where we were given our tickets and priority access. The guide also gave us our River Cruise tickets at this time.

The guide leaves after dropping you off at the Eiffel Tower, so if you want a COMPLETELY guided tour, this may not be right for you. It was just right for us. Our guide gave us instructions on how to reach our hotel before leaving.

The tickets included access to the 1st and 2nd stories of the Eiffel Tower. You have to buy a ticket (5,20 euros) for the third story. I didn't like going up that high, but the rest of the family enjoyed it. The lines were really long to reach the 3rd story and there was no priority access.

We did the River Cruise the same day, but you don't have to. The ticket is valid for 1 year. The cruise was a nice complement to the bus tour and has some wonderful views of many places - especially Notre Dame.

We thought this tour was great.

My Review

AMAZING!!! This tour was exactly what we hoped for. We had a very knowledgeable driver and guide. First, the driver picks you up at the ship and then you go to the Vatican where the guide is waiting for you. Both were experts on Rome and couldn't do enough to help us. (Rigas was our driver and Francesca was our guide) They will follow the standard tour but you can change it anyway you'd like.

People who took the tours our ship offered had a lot of trouble, but we got to do everything we hoped for and MORE!!

I can't recommend this tour highly enough if you have a short time in Rome!!!
