Prague Hop-On Hop-Off Tour: Jewish Quarter and Prague Castle Tours plus Vltava Cruise

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The two tours of the Prague Castle and the Jewish quarter made this tour really worth the money. The bus tour is somewhat disorganized. There are two busses. One with air conditioning and with a tour guide and another one without the tour guide and air conditioning. The busses were late by at least 20 mins on several occasions due to traffic, so you just have to hope that the busses were not cancelled standing and waiting. There should also be a description of how to redeem the tickets as in Old town there are a number of people walking around with red umbrellas, who were very nice and will lead you to their office for ticket redemption, but there are no stops or other signs in Old Town. Overall, this tour was worth the money. The two tours were very good, the Vltava river cruise was not worth the time, it is a slow moving boat on the river with no guides, so you just buy drinks on the boat and it went around one loop very slowly.

Skip the Line: Hard Rock Cafe Prague Including Meal

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

An address and where the restaurant is located would have been appreciated. The restaurant is in Old Town, should be easy to find, but the Hard Rock website only gave a street address. They do give you a lot of food, but restaurants are fairly inexpensive in Prague and unless you crave burgers and fries, local restaurants may be more appealing.

Kusadasi Shore Excursion: Ephesus Sightseeing Tour

Kusadasi, Turkey

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide picked us up at the port as stated. She was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. The lunch was very good, I wished the Terrace houses are included in the tour but it was not, the tour ended around 3 p.m. so it was not 8 hours as stated, but it took us to Virgin Mary's House, Hadrian's library and all the places that the ship's tour would have taken us, except this was more reasonable and lunch was included. The four star instead of the 5 star rating was due to the non inclusion of the terrace houses.

Mycenae and Epidaurus Day Trip from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The hotel pick up and drop off was a very nice service, lunch was very good and a bargain for the price. The main reason I gave this a three star rather than a 4 or 5 star is because the air conditioning in the smaller bus did not really work, it was very hot, the guide really tried to answer all the questions, but some people just did not listen and she repeated things over and over to answer questions, also, she did not
look for a shady place to talk and we stood in the hot sun for long periods for her to repeat facts. The drive was very beautiful and the destination is well worth the trip.

Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Beautiful scenery and a nice change away from the city. This temple is not as crowded as the acropolis and is definitely worth seeing. Even though the ticket prints 2:30 pm apparently - according to the guide - the tour starts at 3. We were told to wait at the hotel lobby at 2 pm for pickup, the driver did not show until 2:25 and then the bus waited for almost 30 minutes with no air conditioning running on a 90 degree hot day. It seemed to be a waste of a hour to be sitting in a hot bus and the driver did not speak English to let us know what was going on, then there were numerous pick ups at different hotels when the bus started running at 3 pm

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I would highly recommend this tour. You can split up the tour with two half days and they told us we had another day free, which was advertised on some of the European websites, the buses were frequent and they had staff at every stop which is very helpful.

My Review

This tour saved us a lot of time from having to wait in line. The normal line goes around several blocks even before the museum opens. The guide was very nice and answered a lot of our question and I like it being a small gropu of no more than 15 people.

Istanbul City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I followed instructions and went to the pick up stop at 9:30 a.m.. I found out that the bus does not arrive at Taksim square until 10:35, wasting one hour of waiting time, then I had to take the entire tour to exchange my voucher at the last stop. We cannot get off the bus until the voucher was exchanged. The last bus was at 4:30, we basically only went to one site and that was the end of the day. I could have done this for 1.75 Turkish Lira or $1.20 in U.S. $, the tour was $27.00. It was a waste of money and waste of a day.

This was a great tour, beautiful countryside, and the most beautiful castles. The tour is well organized. Make sure you bring 17 Euro in cash for each passenger to go into the castles.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We lucked out with a tour guide who was originally from Providence Rhode Island, who had no problems with English. He was a very good story teller and gave us a lot of history during the tour. The Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel were amazing, but we wished there was more time for us to look around.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The only reason they include Naples on this trip is to drop of some people that would go to Capri. Naples is not a tourist spot that I would go, as there is almost no history and not much to look at. Pompeii was very interesting. The lunch was so-so; we ate at a hole in the wall restaurant with servers who did not speak English. They offered spaghetti with sauce only, and we did not know if that was the only food we would get, we even had trouble asking for cheese as they did not understand. As it turned out, they offered us a slice of turkey later, and a bowl of unpeeled mandarin oranges, which looked like they picked it off the back yard. The drinks were separate, so we had to pay for the drinks.

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a great way to visit Rome, but it does not go to all the locations, such as the Appian Way. The bus stop was a little hard to find the first time, as I did not know there was a specific stop sign, and I missed the bus a few times as I was on the wrong street corner.
