Venice Super Saver: Skip-the Line Doge's Palace and St Mark’s Basilica Tours, Venice Walking Tour and Grand Canal Cruise

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our tour guide for the visit to the Doge's Palace was very good, a very good overall view and visit of the Palace; we would just have liked to spend a bit more time in the Palace - I would suggest doing the St Mark's Basilica and walking tour just before the Canal tour so that you can take full advantage of the Doge's Palace.
The tour of St Mark's Basilica was very quick in my opinion, would have liked a bit more time and information about the Basilica however understand the restrictions due to all the visitors.
The walking tour was informative and worth while and the Grand Canal tour was very enjoyable. If you have just a few days in Venice I highly recommend you do this tour and then explore Venice on your own.

Veneto Small-Group Wine Tasting Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We were a bit disappointed with the tour overall since we only visited one winery and thought we were going to visit more than just the one but the tour of the winery was very informative and the wine was excellent. We had to ask to try various types of wines but the guides at the winery were very accommodating so if you do this tour don't be shy to ask.
We are also very disappointed with the driver to/from the winery, there was no information provided and the driver did not even introduce himself so it made for a long 1 hour drive to and from the winery. This is something which could be improved and would make the tour more enjoyable and more worth the price.

Murano Glass and Burano Lace Tour from Venice

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour, the Murano glass blowing demonstration was very impressive and the island of Burano is definitely worth visiting.
Would have liked to explore the island of Murano a bit more (only went to the Glass Blowing Museum) and would have liked a bit more time in Burano to take it all in.

Douro Valley Small-Group Tour with Wine Tasting, Portuguese Lunch and Optional River Cruise

Porto, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were only in Porto for 2 days and wanted to see as much of the region as possible. This was a great tour , we had plenty to drink and eat and the views were magnificent. We were supposed to do the river cruise but due to weather and risky river conditions we visited another winery which was a good substitute. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We were only 4 people on the tour plus the guide which was a very nice size. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a very good tour with a bit of everything from castles, ocean views and strolling down narrow European streets. Our tour guide, Marta, was very accommodating especially since we arrived at the meeting point quite late. I would highly recommend this tour.

Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I thought this was a very good quick way of seeing the major sites in Athens. It was a good 'feeler' tour which then allowed me to go back to the sites I wanted to spend more time at. The added option of the Acropolis Museum visit was well worth it.

3-Day Classical Greece Tour: Epidaurus, Mycenae, Nafplion, Olympia, Delphi

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was excellent! The sites were great; the tour delivered what was promised. I would have preferred having more free time in the cities versus lunch 'options' but that is a personal preference.
Unfortunately we had a different tour guide for the return to Athens from Delphi and there no information provided at all which made it a very long trip back; I would have preferred having the same tour guide.

2-Day Small-Group Troy and Gallipoli Tour from Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Tour was great! Pick up was a little early but we were able to avoid the traffic out of Istanbul and did not feel rushed. I did not know the hotel I would be staying at before hand but was very good, good choice of food and clean facilities. I was very fortunate as there was only myself and another couple so felt almost like a private tour.
Would highly recommend to anyone who has a few days and would like to see a bit more of Turkey, not just Istanbul.

Great day tour! Saw all the highlights and lunch was very good. Did not get to the Grand Bazaar because it was a Sunday but had plenty of time in the Spice Market.
Would recommend to anyone who would like to see all the 'big' sights in Istanbul.

Hunter Valley Wineries and Wilderness Small-Group Tour

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a really fun tour. Feeding the kangaroos was great, and the tour guide was very good. We got to taste more wines than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. The stop at the chocolate factory was not really worth it, in my opinion.

Blue Mountains Deluxe Small Group Eco Tour from Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a good tour. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw some kangaroos in the wild, and the food was quite good. The only negatives were that the cost of the scenic railway should be included in the price of the tour and stopping at the Euroka was not really worth it - there was no wildlife at all.
