Rio de Janeiro Full Day Tropical Islands Tour and Sepetiba Bay Cruise including Lunch

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our boat trip got cancelled so we were put together with this tour group.
While the day was tons of fun, we hadn't anticipated a 3 hour drive each way (our original tour was 1.5 each way).
We also thought our tour guide would speak some English, but he didn't. He was very nice and tried a little, but all 3 hours there and back, he talked to the tour bus in Portuguese or Spanish and we got absolutely nothing out of it. We still don't even know what town we went to (to board our schooner boat) or which 3 islands our boat took us to. Now, for our scrapbooks sake, we have to look on the internet and try to find a town with 3 Kings statues and then 3 islands near there, which we possibly visited.
In the end we decided to call the tour "The Mystery Tour" because we didn't know where we went or what we saw.

My Review

We got to and from our hotel safely, but we had to get picked up for our return flight 4 hours early. That meant hanging out at the airport an hour before our Emirates gate even opened and an hour earlier than necessary, to board the flight.

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Good thing I had an airsick patch behind my ear, because this was one wild ride! I wish the camel rides were longer and we had more time to do more than one sand board run, but we had a really good time. The food was great! The $25 disk was kind of a waste, considering I only found a few photos of us on it...and we'd taken ones ourselves that were almost complete duplicates. However, $25 is a lot less than the $60 charge you get at the Bjur Khalifa for just one photo.

Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Review

We had a nice time. I wish we could have gotten closer to the Burj Al Arab. Personally, taking photos of the outside of the city mosque was unnecessary. The Dubai museum was interesting, but I'd have preferred to have more time shopping at the Gold Souk.

Abu Dhabi City Sightseeing Tour - The Arabian Jewel

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The only downside was the long drive. The Grand mosque was beautiful and it was fun to get to wear the traditional women's burka.
I loved seeing the Grand hotel and the stop on the water to take photos.
We had a great time at the Zayed museum and shopping at the beach.
Wish we'd had a tad bit more time for lunch at the mall, because their space needle restaurant; Tiara (at the Marina Mall) is quite a trek.
The only thing that could be added would be a stop to the Ferrari World. It'd be cool if they had passes for tour groups to go in and just do the one ride (roller coaster).

Stonehenge, Salisbury and Bath Custom Day Trip

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was delightfully funny and knowledgeable. I just wish he spoke a little more while we were driving. Salisbury would have been boring (It was out 3rd tour in one week and I was cathederaled out) had it not been for a darling pub called the Lazy Cow, where we enjoyed their home brewed ale and watched an hour of the Olympics. It sucked having to make our way to Victoria Station (our cab could only take us half way and we had to walk/run 2 miles) to meet the bus, but that was due to the Olympics and not the fault of the tour company.

Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands Small Group Day Trip from Glasgow

Glasgow, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the stops in route and coming back to Glasgow. I especially loved that he played authentic Scottish music in the bus. We had some rude and noisy guests on the bus, but the guide tried to talk over their noise so we could all hear the interesting facts about the sites we were seeing. I loved every stop we made and we were blessed with a beaustiul sunny day. The boat trip on Loch Ness was awesome!

Cliffs of Moher Day Trip from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour guide was excellent and very informative, but I felt like it was a bit long. I coud have done without a stop of 2 en route and coming back. The trip took about 13 hours and we were exhausted by the time we were dropped back off in Dublin. The Cliffs left a little to be desired as well, but then, it was pouring rain and we couldn't really take in all its beauty.
