Grand Canyon Helicopter and Ranch Adventure

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great experience but slightly disappointing that the time actually spent in the grand canyon itself was very minimal. The ranch is NOT in the Grand Canyon itself but on a plain outside. If you want to fly low down into the depth of the canyon this is not the tour for you.

My Review

Intense day with all the main sites but to spend over an hour at the Farmers Market for us was quite a waste of time which could have been spent somewhere else like the famous peoples homes and getting nearer the Hollywood sign (we had to make do with a view from Hollywood Boulevard which is quite a long way). One word of mention should go to our guide Munday, he was a scream and kept us all entertained with his quips and knowledge of the film industry.

San Francisco Bay Sunset Cruise

San Francisco, California

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

What must be said about this particular trip is DO NOT BOOK IN ADVANCE. The success of this trip is purely dependent on the weather in San Francisco on the day as the city is prone to fog, low cloud and mist which particularly during the summer months masks any sign of the sun. Our trip proved a total washout as we saw no sign on the sun or sunset whatsoever. The buffet on board was plentiful and we remained inside the vessel and were entertained by a solo musician.

My Review

Need a bit of fitness but this tour is fantastic. Our guide Jason was superb and we visited four wineries BUT, note the tasting charges vary from winery to winery from $10 to $20 which is quite pricey. Unforgettable day with some quality wines and some interesting facts learnt.

A LOT OF HAGING AROUND WATING UNTIL WE GOT GOING. ONLY GOT UP TO THE 4 X4 DRIVING AFTER LUNCH WHICH WAS QUITE ENJOYABLE. A BIT DISSAPOINTING TO BE HONEST

My Review

FLOATING MARKETS CERTAINLY AN EXPERIENCE. TOO MUCH IN YOUR FACE PRESSURE SELLING THOUGH. KWAI EXPERIENCE VERY GOOD. DIFFICULY TO ENVISAGE HOW IT WAS THOUGH WITH MANY HOTELS AND A NEW BRIDGE NOW IN PLACE. NEVERTHELESS A GOOD NOSTALGIC VISIT. LONG DAY BUT WORTH IT. CHOSE THIS TRIP AS OPOSE TO THE ONE WITH THE TRAIN JOURNEY AS THE FLOATING MARKETS ARE A BETTER BET.
