Small-Group Bayou Airboat Ride with Transport from New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very entertaining and informative. The ride through the swamp was gorgeous, and then the guide's moving us into the smaller rivers to find alligators, and feed them was exciting. He knew where they were likely to be, and we got very close up views of the huge fifteen foot gator coming right up to the boat to receive a chicken handout. He also let my granddaughter hold his pet gator, about a foot or two long, while he explained the biology of the animals. Then a very fast ride across the lake. It was quite an experience both for me, at 78, and my granddaughter, at 16. RLB

Tour of Oak Alley Plantation

New Orleans, Louisiana

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The bus ride to the plantation was filled with a monologue by a very knowledgeable driver/tour guide. We learned so much about the history of Louisiana, New Orleans, the plantations, the crops, the wildlife, and even recommendations for restaurants and other sights to see back at NOLA. The plantation tour was very nice, and the grounds were lovely. It was a leisurely visit, not rushed. We got to sit and drink some mint julips while taking in the beautiful view epitomized by the picture to the left. The woman guide at the home was intelligent, able to answer all kinds of questions about the history of plantations, the biographies of the owners and their families and the history of the sugar cane growing industry. Highly recommended.

Paris Rail Day Trip from London

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An outstanding experience. Saw everything, close up, yet lots of time for walking, eating, shopping on our own. Tour guide was knowledgeable, but did not overpower us with information or jokes, basically led us from place to place. No pressure.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Obviously, it would have been great to be able to walk among the stones. But we realize the difficulties to the history of the place in allowing all of us to do that. The audio tour and the adequate time made this an awesome experience, I have looked forward to all my life. And the surrounding scenary in the area was breathtaking.

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a great guide! She was on, seemed truly enthusiastic in spite of the fact she must have done the tour thousands of times before. A great attitude, funny, knowledgeable, made the history come alive. Surprised that there was no inportuning for tips, as there are on other similar tours, Complete freedom to hop off, and hop on another bus later after visiting someplace interesting. But hesitated to leave the great tour guide by doing that.
