Alaska Railroad Adventure with Spencer Glacier Float Trip

Anchorage, Alaska

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an amazing trip, starting with a train journey through Portage to Whistle Stop Spencer Glacier. Dressed in our 'elegant' boots, ponchos and life jackets, we then jumped into our rafts and set off across the lake to get a close up view of the glacier. We were surrounded by icebergs which, though not Titanic-size, still dwarfed our rafts and made it exceedingly challenging for our rower. We then moved on apace down river for about five miles, meeting a few Grade 2 rapids head on, before being picked up in the middle of nowhere by the excellent Alaskan Railroad.

FC Barcelona Football Stadium Tour and Museum Tickets

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Although I don't have the interest in football grounds that Geoff has, we have visited Benfica and Real Madrid grounds, and compared to them, I found this visit quite disappointing but Geoff enjoyed it. No organised tours and noone to tell us anything. It was absolutely packed with large groups of schoolboys, but maybe it wasn't the best time of the year to go!

This tour was excellent and we visited parts of the city that otherwise we might not have seen. Our English tour guide was very entertaining, friendly and told us lots of interesting facts about Barcelona. Well worth the money.

I booked this trip as a surprise present for my niece's birthday. She and her husband had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the cruise. A spectacular finale was when they passed Burswood just as the Chinese New Year firework display was starting!

The cruise was a pleasant distraction during torrential rain. However, it was enjoyable and the commentary (in three languages) was pretty good. The pilot also added some of her own information. A good trip.

USS Midway Museum

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Although not having a personal interest in aircraft carriers, I did find my visit suprisingly interesting. The volunteers on board were all very passionate about the boat and were all very helpful. The boat was much bigger than I expected and although spending over three hours there, we still didn't see everything. It made for an excellent visit and I would highly recommend it.

San Francisco Vista Grande Helicopter Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This helicopter trip was amazing. We had been picked up as arranged and transported to the helipad. We were lucky enough to be the only passengers as others had cancelled and I was able to sit alongside,the pilot, Ron, who gave us a great commentary as we flew around the city. It was a pity that the Golden Gate Bridge was surrounded in the famous fog, but we were still able to fly underneath it, TWICE, the highlight of the tour. It was really great and well worth the extravagance!

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The 'dune bashing' was incredible, hair-raising yet not scary. Although the visit to the 'bedouin' camp was a bit on the 'touristy' side, it was quite fun, and the view of the setting sun was incredible. The sight of the camels and their keeper on the top of the sand dunes was also something to write home about. The 'barbecue' was OK, but with a beefburger, a lamp chop and a chicken leg, it was hardly a typical desert meal! The display of belly dancing was excellent and I was pleased we weere not asked to join in. Overall, an enjoyalbl tour.

This was excellent and extremely well organised. A small 12 seater coach meant that the tour was more intimate and gave us the opportunity to chat with fellow travellers. The guide was very efficient and knowledgeable.

An entertaining and varied tour. Our guide at first appeared a little formidable but we soon realised that this was not the case. She was very helpful and managed the tour extremely well, changing the itinerary according to crowds at the various stops on the tour. A fantastic finale.

This was excellent. In the morning we were the only two on the tour and had our own personal guide. The guides are very good and speak perfect English. The company is very well organised and we were picked up at our hotel on time and dropped off again afterwards. The tour itself was very interesting and informative.

Wieliczka Salt Mine Half-Day Trip from Krakow

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This appeared to be a little disorganised. We arrived at the meeting place where several tours were leaving from. The guides were a little confused, particularly when some extra people whom they weren't expecting turned up. This meant that different sized coaches had to be used, and several people had to get on and off different coaches. A wheelchair user was there, and there was no facility to get him on the coach and several customers had to help to lift him on. The tour itself was extremely interesting and once we had left to go on the tour everything seemed well organised.
