Discover Berlin Half-Day Walking Tour

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Tour lead by Finn a Northern Ireland expat who has lived in Berlin for 6 years studying history so very knowledgeable and amusing. It was very cold and it was hard sometimes to find places out of the wind to listen to his talk but he managed well and walked quickly between places which helped warm us up! There is a great deal to cover and we only stopped once for a welcome coffee and cake but still didn't finish until well after 3pm it is amazing value for money and gives a really good overview of the city helped by a good guide.

Reykjavik Super Saver: Blue Lagoon Round-Trip Transport plus Gulfoss and Geysir Half-Day Tour

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Transport only to the blue lagoon so best to book online direct with the lagoon for entrance to save some of the queue (depends how many other savvy travellers are with you!) we were lucky and marginally cheaper. We had pretty bad weather but enjoyed seeing the sites although geyser almost in the dark! is a long day getting back about 7pm and later once dropped off at hotel but well organised and good guide.

Really good trip, well organised and we saw so many stars you just don't see from England but gather from other guests comments from most places! Parkers provided lovely and warm, couldn't fault it.

Lovely afternoon trip via a beautiful temple, some good beaches, we did see a turtle and home via the dole plantation for some delicious pineapple ice cream. None of the stops too long and all operated very smoothly.

Skip the Line: Small-Group Milan Walking Tour with da Vinci's 'The Last Supper' Tickets

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I did this on my first morning in Milan and the french guide with impeccable english and italian together with his i-pad(!) gave a very good talk as we walked plus we had access to The Last Supper which was fully booked for that day. Taking in the Cathedral, La Scala and the castle Sforza from the outside it gives an insight into the history and geography of the main part of central Milan.

Champagne Tasting on a Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Travelled to Paris with my 90 year old aunt, hope I have her genes! This tour was lovely, they made a fuss of her, there was plenty of champagne and the tour finished in time for a rather quiet supper. Good idea to eat a little something before!

My Review

Had the 2 day ticket and got to see all the parts of the city that I particularly wanted to plus a few new areas. We were lucky with the weather and travelled a great deal on the top deck with good photo opportunities. Sometimes a wait when changing lines but overall a good way to see the city.

Weather fantastic so enjoyable experience with information about the ship from the crew. It was lovely to be out on the water with the engine off and sails billowing. Barbecue food good if not stunning and plenty of photo opportunities before arriving back after the sun had set.

Hunter Valley Wineries and Wilderness Small-Group Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Small group enjoyed a trip via the reptile farm for close ups with a koala and kangaroos amongst other animals and then through some lanes where we saw kangaroos in the wild. Wines were tasted at broken Ridge, rather too many without any dry biscuits or something else to mop up some of the alcohol, then lunch at Hunter valley resort with more wine and then another winery before stopping at a rather overpriced chocolate and cheese shop, very sleepy on the way back! Arangements good in terms of pick up etc, wineries mainly large corporate type although last a bit smaller. Personally could have done without the chocolate/cheese stop but on the whole a good tour.

Best way to get bearings in a new place and informative talk both pre-recorded and the exta's from the driver were helpful in explaining the significance of the various stops.

J. Paul Getty Museum

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The place warrants at least 5 stars but the fact the tour only gives you 4.5 hours there is a real shame, there is more than enough to happily spend the day wandering around the most lovely buildings and gardens. Great collections with regular talks on different topics throughout the day make this a pretty special place. Entry is free so you are only paying for transport but public transport is minimal so only way to get there if you have no car.

My Review

Glad I went by subway so could leave after lunch! Enjoyed the tour of the backlot and it was good to see the special effects live rather than on tv but nothing there that was new, although they did their best to make it entertaining. The archives are restricted to 2 rooms, as for the rest, a series of fairground type rides although did stop for a short blues set in one of the theatres. As you can see not really my thing but fans of Desperate Housewives get to see Wysteria Drive and kids small (and large) were apparently enjoying the rides so I'm clearly just grumpy old woman!
