Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor and Punchbowl Sightseeing Tour

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Arizona Memorial is a good experience. Why would you come to Hawaii and not see it? Shame so many people do not show reverance at memorials these days. Punchbowl is only about a half hour drive by with narration.

Oahu Grand Circle Island Day Tour with Dole Plantation

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was Ernel and he was fantastic. Make sure you do not sit on the driver's side of the bus or you miss out on seeing the coastline and getting good photographs.

Make sure you try the pineapple ice cream at the Dole plantation. We shared one between 2 as the US portion sizes are huge.

Well worth doing at the start of your trip to plan out where you would like to go back and spend more time.

Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour of the city was good to gain an undrestanding of the history and important landmarks. We did the Alcatraz tour in the afternoon when most of the fog had cleared and we saw great views of the city. The audio tour of the prison is really interesting.

Las Vegas Super Saver: Romance Package at Madame Tussauds with Gondola Ride and Lunch or Dinner

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The gondola ride lasts about 10 minutes and is of the outside of the hotel. If you want to do it as a couple and not share the gondola it costs you another $32. The meal was average and Madame Tussauds is a bit of a novelty. Just turn up at the hotel and do the gondola ride.

Washington DC Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

You get to see all the main sights in the capital. Unfortunately there were street blockages outside the White House so we were only able to view it from the back. They are also doing alot of excavation and remodelling of the big lake (the one you see in Forrest Gump) between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. That was definitely a disappointment. We would like to have been able to go to the Smithsonium Museum of Natural History rather than the Air and Space Museum. It's a long day with lots of time on the road but well worth the effort.

My Review

This was a highlight of our time in NYC. The show was fantastic and the colours of the costumes were amazing. Our seats were nice and close to the front with a slight side view.

Empire State Building Tickets - Observatory and Optional Skip the Line Tickets

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The view from here is fantastic. We also did the simulated helicopter ride over NYC which they try to sell you outside the building. We would not recommend doing the ride but the Empire State Observatory is a must. It was really cold when we went, so the line was not too long. In the Spring / Summer it would be huge.

New York in One Day Sightseeing Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating

My Review

Good way to get your bearings in the city and plan where to go back to whilst staying in the area. The stops were numerous and there are lots of opportunities to take photographs. The cruise out to see the Statue of Liberty was a highlight for us.

San Diego Zoo

San Diego, California

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

My Review

San Diego Zoo was disappointing. We have been to many zoo's in our time. Tarongo Zoo in Sydney, Singapore Zoo and Australia Zoo are much more diverse and pituresque. We did not even stay for the full day we were so unimpressed.

Such a fuss free and easy trip down. The coach driver was most knowlegeable and professional. The coach was clean, comfortable and all riders were able to have a seat to themselves.

My Rating

This was a fantastic way to hear the history of the local area and get off to see each of the sights. We even considered doing this for a second day to get off at all the places we missed. San Diego is lovely.

Skip the Line: Front of Line Pass at Universal Studios Hollywood

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The front of the line pass was well worth the money, especially as it was spring break when we vistited the park. The Jurassic Park ride was closed for maintenace but everything else was working. It would be good if this included transportation.
