Montserrat Royal Basilica Half-Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a very good trip. There were several highlights, including The Cogtrain ride up to Montserrat and also the funicular ride to the top of the mountain. The viewing from the vantage point on top of the mountain is spectacular. But as always time seems to always fly and everything is hard to see in the allotted time, but all in all would recommend.

Barcelona Segway Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was one of the best Segway rides we have down so far around the world. We were only a small group of four and it was also a public holiday in Barcelona at the time. The early start was a good idea we had very few pedestrians to worry about in the early part of the tour. Our guide took us down narrow laneway and back streets but at no time at all did it feel daunting. We went down to the seaside area around the port where there were wide open spaces , where he allowed us to 'put the foot down'. In the seaside area there were some great photo moments. I took my 14 year grandson on this ride and he came back a real convert to the Segway. Would recommend this tour.

Skip the Line: Best of Barcelona Private Tour including Sagrada Familia

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This turned out to be a very good tour. Our guide took us where we wanted to go and told us some very interesting history and facts. Well worth the cost of a private tour especially having the skip the line benefit into the Sagrada Famillia. Would recommend for a small group 4-6 wanting a private tour.

Barcelona Morning Sightseeing Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour took in all the sights and if we had known we would not have done this tour but stayed with the private tour as they seem to overlap and visit pretty much the same areas. This was a bus tour of around 15-20 people so keeping it on time was the main issue, but a good tour just the same.

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Well worth the climb up the mountain to see the castle. My advise is if you haven't done any walking or consider yourself unfit, take the bus to the drop off point. The entrance procedure is well organised and again expect large crowd but getting in does not take long at all. The 'photo moments' are a plenty so be prepared. Ian our guide ensured we all got there and back safely on the train and provided plenty of information on the history of Neuschwanstein Castle.

My Review

The tour was very good although we had light rain, but this did not deter from the Christmas festive feeling. Our guide informed us of the history behind the markets that we visited and was also informative on all other aspects.

Shared Arrival Transfer: Munich Airport to Munich Central Station

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an easy way to get into Munich, although a little confusing to determine the correct bus at the airport. We had used the Munich Airport Shuttle before so it appears this service is the same? The driver accepted our voucher so we were happy and arrived at the train station with no problems.

Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour went very smoothly from the pick up to the return drop off, to the point the bus driver let us off only about 100 metres from our street. This was a sunrise tour so that meant an early start but it was no real issue as we had a sto from the restrooms and breakfast on the way. As we were the only visitors at the Stonehenge site before offical open time it made it a very special visit.
The stops at Lacock and Bath were again real interesting given by this time the crowds at Bath were starting to roll in.
Lacock was a very interesting with the heritage still being maintained as it was in the 17th and 18th century.
On the whole the tour was good value and both guide and driver made the tour a pleasure.

My Review

One of the highlights of our time in Dublin. The two musicans were both talented and funny. We thought at first it may have been more on the 'pub crawl' then the music but that was not to be and we highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for an entertaining night in Dublin.

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A very complete day. As we had back to back tours it was on the go all the way. There would have been over one hundred people on the bus so and this made viewing, listening to places of interesting very difficult. We did enjoy and were satified with the tour but felt if we were doing it again we would opt for a small group tour.

My Review

Well this tour was just about right not a full boat load but very comfortable. Our hosts for the night were both guides and waitresses. The boat seem to go everywhere with ease and we were kept informed of the sights and POI. It was value for money and we both enjoyed the night.

My Review

The tours was well worth it. It should be stressed that this was a walking tour and we did cover a lot of ground and kilometres on a very warm day, but all very interesting. As a suggestion maybe a few more scheduled rest stops would help those in groups that may not best use to walking the longer distances.

Again this was a long half day tour, but really value for money. We covered a lot of ground and kilometres on a warm day, so would advise anyone doing the tour well into summer to be prepared. Be prepared for the crowds at the popular spots.
