Dubai by Night City Tour

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is organised by Big Bus, which has a half open topped bus. It seemed a nice idea to sit outside, and when we were crawling in traffic we managed to see lots of high rise buildings and take some photos. However when we were free from the traffic the wind got colder and stronger and many people had to take cover inside, so be warned to take coats, hats, and scarves for the time being until the hot weather takes control. In the advert it stated we would be dropped at Wafi city, but in fact we were picked up and dropped off at Dubai Mall. Another tip to other users, the stop is outside the main entrance, head for the Tiffanys shop and it is outside.

The tour was very interesting and informative. It was good to see another Emirate that is so different from Dubai. The guide was excellent and really helpful.

My Review

This is a good way to get to see parts of Dubai and learn about their culture. The downside is there is so much to see you don't really get enough time at each stop. However if you did feel like you needed more time then at least you have some idea of where to go later during your visit.

Very good courier, and it was nice to have the option to stay on if we wanted too if we didn't have enough time to see everything.

Singapore by Night Tour with Dinner along Singapore River

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Excellent courier. The meal, night markets and tour of the city were brilliant, however the drink at Raffles was not what we expected. The advertisement made you think you were actually going into Raffles hotel, however it was just a bar in the shopping arcade which surrounded the hotel, and was accessible by all.

My Review
The trip was very good, however it didn't give you enough time at any of the venues, and to try and fit in lunch and a drink was virtually impossible. Perhaps the aquarium could be left off the itinerary as it is in need of repair and then people would have time to enjoy the rest of the tour.

Wieliczka Salt Mine Half-Day Trip from Krakow

Krakow, Poland

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
I was worried about the number of stairs at the start of the tour, but they weren't as bad as I had thought they would be. Apart from the jelly legs for ten mins, they then soon got back to normal. However, I was not prepared for the other 520 which we eventually had to do to reach level three. By the end of the trip and for the next four days, my calf muscles were not happy. Perhaps this should be made clear. The tour guide we were given at the mines was brilliant, she made it a very special experience with her wit and knowledge. We were very impressed with the sculptures and beautiful chapels, and it was certainly worth a bit of discomfort, nothing a few pain killers couldn't help with. The lift back to the top was an eye opener, none of us were prepared to be jammed in and the cage shut around us, you had to laugh, when you were breathing down a complete strangers neck, or had your knees in their groin area. We did however not have long enough to look in the shops either before descending or afterwards. Which was a shame as we would have liked to have bought something to take home as a memento. We were only given ten mins when we arrived, just long enough for a toilet break, and no time at all when we came out, it was straight back onto the bus.

Zakopane and Tatras Mountains Day Tour from Krakow

Krakow, Poland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We had a marvellous trip. Our guide certainly knew his stuff, and his English was better than ours. He made the day with his knowledge of the countryside and pointed out lots of things to see. When I needed a bathroom, he found a nice clean safe petrol station. Zakopane is a lovely place. The weather was terrible, and we were not lucky enough to see the Tatras Mountains; however, we did manage to be there on the day they had their first snow of the season, and that was fun. The guide did his best to keep us all happy, and the tour of the houses and cemetery was very enlightening. Although it was a long day, we both enjoyed it, and seeing and learning about the people and their lives was brilliant.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum Half-Day Trip from Krakow

Krakow, Poland

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
The trip was very interesting. The video on the coach gave us an insight into what we could expect, although seeing it for ourselves was a very different experience. We all know what happened in those dreadful places, and choosing to go and see it was not an easy decision. However we are glad we went, at least we could pay our respects to those poor people who suffered for no reason of their own. The only down side was we didn't have a lot of time, it almost felt as if we were one of them being pushed here there and everywhere. We arrived and were given five minutes to go to the toilet, and then we met the tour guide, she was very nice and told us a lot about the camps. We then had ten minutes from the end of the trip at Auschwitz, before getting on the coach to Birkenau. Here once again we were pushed around like cattle, and then back on the coach, with only time for a toilet break. The day had started at 8:50 at our hotel pick up and we didn't return until well after 2:00, but there was no time to get a snack. We would therefore recommend you mention this in your advertisement, as we were both cold wet and very hungry. Which considering where we had been was very apt.
