Day Tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem from Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv, Israel

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We went on this tour on 15th February. We have been on a lot of similar tours in other cities and countries, and I am sorry to say this was one of the worst tours we have ever been on. We were very disappointed with the organisation, the quality of the guides, and the time we were 'forced' to spend in shops.

The tour of Jerusalem was OK, but quite uneven - a lot of time spent 'admiring' the streets and derelict buildings and not enough time at the religious sites, which is what we really wanted to see.

Bethlehem was a bit of an organisational disaster. Our guide left us in the queue for the Nativity church and only showed up again much later when we'd already walked past a couple of attractions. He didn't apologise or cover the bits he'd missed off.

We then finished the tour of the Nativity church and had to wait almost 20 minutes in the cold for the bus to pick us up, which everyone thought was unacceptable.

To our shock we were then taken to yet another shop and forced to spend half an hour there, even if no one from our group bought anything. We told the guide we wanted to leave but he told us quite rudely to wait.

When we couldn't find 5 people, we were told by the guide that we (not he) should look for them. In the end we found them waiting in the bus - I wish I had done the same, as that was half an hour of my time I will never get back.

Such a shame as both Jerusalem and Bethlehem are great places. This tour needs improving. Please take this feedback on board and make some drastic changes.

Fantasia Moroccan Dinner and Cultural Show

Marrakech, Morocco

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The dinner and show were great, however if you're staying in the Medina, you will have to take a taxi to the agency, where a bus will take you to the Fantasia show. We had to wait for the bus for over 30 mins and when the bus finally came, it took another 90 mins to pick everyone else up before we got to our destination. Not ideal.

Great way to see the way gauchos live or used to live. The food was great and we really enjoyed horseback riding. The show was a little disappointing. Overall a good experience.

Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Beautiful scenic views and music, but they shouldn't allow more than 4 people on each gondola. 6 is too many. Also, our gondolier didn't look very happy. He smoked and talked on his phone when the music went off.

My Review

Excellent experience. Strongly recommended. Only advice is that you need to be quite athletic to paddle all the way around the island to the cave and back. It's not the easiest thing!

Good experience. The buffet is great, the main courses were a bit bland, but the entertainment made up for it (particularly the belly dancer).
