Skip the Line: Hard Rock Cafe Venice Including Meal

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

For the price you cant go wrong. This has to be the best value food in Venice even though it is not traditional. However you know what you are getting and it's certainly filling. The venue is well positioned right next to a Gondolier Taxi stop in the heart of Venice. Well worth the visit.

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very interesting tour. Our guide was informative and fun. We had the added benefit of visiting the prison cells and the bridge of sighs. Doges Palace is so diverse and has such history. I found this the best of the Venice walking tours.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Link Arrival Transfer

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our trip from the Airport was packed with 12 people on the taxi; this trip was just 4 of us and was a real treat!.. The trip normally takes about an hour, with pick-ups, however this journey took under 25 minutes and we sped along jumping breakers and overtaking boats alike. This was 2 trips in one to be honest, one being the transfer the other being a speedboat experience... at speed!! Brilliant. All in all this trip does what it says on the tin... you may be unlucky and have to share with 12 or you may be very lucky and have a speed demon as your captain!!

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Not Brilliant!... Group was too large and quality of earphones/transmitters let this trip down. Very hard to hear/understand what was being said; The Basilica part of the tour was most disappointing; literally 5 mins in the building. The remainder of the tour was made up of being marched around a maze of uninteresting passages stopping occasionally to strain to hear what was being said. By the end of the tour I couldn't care less!!! There's a reason this tour is cheaper than most others.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Venice, Italy

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

My Review

Started poorly; was left hanging about for 30 mins at the airport arrival gate as our contact was nowhere to be found. Finally, after contacting the information desk 3 times was a piece of A4 with my name put up at the kiosk. The representative then called the guide and this took a further 10 minutes. Following 10 minute march to where the taxi was moored we embarked on our journey to Lido. Having a private boat to your destination is good, however it really wouldn't have been much less fun sharing a boat; unfortunately our tax driver was a little unsure as to where we were heading but we still completed the trip in under 30 minutes. Overall... a bit expensive for the whole experience especially the initial contact.

Paris Paradis Latin Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
We took the champagne option which was perfectly acceptable. We were seated probably the furthest away from the stage but this was NOT a problem as the venue is fairly compact and the view is good from any seat. Entertaining and worth doing just for the experience of a Paris Cabaret. We were however unfortunate to be seated behind 2 tables of untidily dressed kids on an outing from Iran with 2 adults as their guides, they were totally uninterested by the show, following the squeals of immaturity when the topless dancers appeared and consistantly chatted noisly throughout. I think the Lido or Moulin Rouge is better as they have a stricter dress code and the latter recommends no children. Lots of good places to eat prior to the show just at the top of the road.

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
An informative tour with a guide who had excellent knowledge of the work she was showing us. The group was a good size 20. Only complaint would be the first hour is spent getting everyone together, entering the Louvre, being told about the shops, going through security, waitng for other to use the toilets big queues!, before finally starting the tour of the exhibitions 1030, so in reality, the tour is 2 hours not 3 as advertised. Still an amazing place though.

My Review
If you want to see the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums then this is the only way to do it. The queue jumping is worth it alone. The public queue to get in was over 3 hours long on our day and it took us only 20 minutes to enter!

Illuminated Rome Night Tour with Dinner

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
This is a total waste of money! The only illumination worth seeing is the Trevi Fountain, and you don't need a coach ride to see this, just catch the metro to Trevi for a euro and save yourself time and money. Basically it is a ride in a coach, in the dark, with many nationalities on board meaning that by the time the guide was explaining something it was half a mile back up the road. There was about 20 on the coach, with repeated commentary in English, German, Spanish and Chinese. When we did Paris it was much more personal for less money and all in one language. The meal, forget it. No choice. Miles from anywhere, with no ambiance. Save your money and grab a fabulous meal at Donay restaurant instead. I can't stress enough how bad it was.
