Delphi Day Trip from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a very good way to get out of Athens and visit this amazing site. Our guide, Joy, was great - her English was exceptional and her knowledge of Delphi, greek mythology and current affairs made the whole day very interesting and worthwhile.I just have two small gripes:
1. We were picked up from our hotel (Royal Olympic) one hour before the start time and then spent the next 60 mins going back and forth picking up from other hotels, passing the Olympic several times. If we had known that this was going to happen we would have made our own way to the main set-off point.
2. It was a large group, and was difficult to get close to Joy to hear all information in Delphi. Also, half of the people were leaving us to continue with another bus to the Meteora and we got a bit tired of these arrangements being repeated tiume and again during the drive.
But these are minor issues, and overall we thought it was a great excursion and certainly worth doing.

Bali Sunset Dinner Cruise

Bali, Indonesia

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

My Review

Pick-up was fine as we had to pay a bit extra as our hotel was well away from the departure point. A lot of people on the trip but plenty of room on the boat. The cocktail provided on boarding was a fruit punch, non-alcoholic. Food was okay, but hot food was only just warm. Entertainment was amateurish and the singer was not very good, it ended upo as karaoke. Weather was not good so we didn't get a sunset, but the company can't be blamed for that. Our main complaint was the actual cruise - we just did circles around the harbour, we didn't go anywhere and the views were non-existent - very disappointed.

Bali Pura Luhur Batukaru Temple and Cultural Small Group Tour

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Good value for money as we were the only ones on the trip so had the car to oursleves. It is a long day and the roads are very bumpy and winding. I suffer from travel sickness and even my preventative measures did not help with all the swaying, stopping and starting and bumps. Felt a bit pressuered at the cultural stops as there was very little demonstration of the art, just pressurised shopping opportunity. The temple was very quiet as there were very few tourists. It was nice to see the rice terraces which is what you imagine when you think of Bali.

Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

For the price, this was a comprehensive tour. The coach was full so it was a bit of a pain getting on and off as we had to wait for everyone. Guide was difficult to understand at times due to accent but overall the commentary was ok. We were not picked up from our hotel as told, we had to make our own way to the Excelsior hotel and return from there.

Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Although we had to make our own way to the ferry terminal as we were staying on HK island at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the excursion was quite enjoyable. We did a lot and the group was not too big so plenty of room on the coach. Lunch was good even though it was vegetarian. Guide was a little difficult to understand due to his heavy accent, but overall he was interesting and informative. Weather was ok but at the Big Buddha it was misty, I understand now that pollution is a problem in Hong Kong and this means you don't often get a clear day. It was a nice break from the busy city and ideal if you are on an extended stay in HK.

Hong Kong Harbor Night Cruise and Dinner at Victoria Peak

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We did not get the pick-up from our hotel and had to make our own way to the Excelsior Hotel but as there were only 5 of us on the evening excursion, we were not too bothered about this. We ate at Bubba Gump on Victoria Peak as the original location stated is still undergoing refurbishment. Food was fine, plenty of it and we did have a small choice of menu. Not a very refined restaurant, but service was quick and as said, food was ok. The stop for the laser show was disappointing as it was misty from the pollution that now plagues Hong Kong and the laser show just consists of buildings flashing lights. Temple Street market was busy and bustling, very authentic. We still had a huge sampan on the harbour even though there was just 5 of us and this part was great as it is a lot clearer seeing the buildings lit up from sea level. Overall very good value for money.

London Rock Music Bohemian Soho and North London Small Group Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a very different view of London and took us to places we have never seen before even though the names are synonymous with London. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and he took us to see highlights that were important to us. The highlight was walking across the zebra crossing featured on the Beatles album Abbey Road.

London Afternoon Tea at Grosvenor House

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was an absolute delight. It was so refined and quite a luxury. Had no problems finding the hotel, and the reservation was confirmed with ease. There was so much to eat and a great choice of teas. We indulged in a bottle of champagne to make the occasion even more memorable.

Copenhagen Panoramic City Tour with Harbor Cruise

Copenhagen, Denmark

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
It was good to use both bus and boat to be able to see the sights from different perspective. We had awful weather though, so could not see much on the boat as it was so steamed up. One bad point was when we were dropped off the boat, we had to make our own way back to where we started and had no idea where we were. This should have been explained to us and our location shown on the map given to us.

Valley Of Fire Buggy Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The Valley of Fire is very hot, as you would expect. We were in Vegas early June during fairly mild weather, it was just eighty nine in Vegas. We were the only ones booked on this package, so we just had our leader in a Rhino buggy followed by the two of us in ours. There was not a lot to see, but whatever there was, we stopped and given information on the area, in particular the cave drawings. As this was our first time in a dune buggy, the course was mild and we did not do a lot off-road; we mainly followed paths. My husband, who did the driving, LOVED it and enjoyed it more than the ATV's we had done the previous day. I understand that they do have different levels that they refer to as fast and slow, so check before booking. They do not seem to be very busy, and we don't understand why. This is a great day out when you are staying in Vegas for a few days, especially after you have done all the other major sightseeing tours. It is a full day, though.

VIP Palms Nightclub Package

Las Vegas, Nevada

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

My Review
I was expecting more from the Playboy Club, but it is just a small casino with Bunny Girls as croupiers, not really the "club" I expected it to be. The evening was booked as a celebration for a sixtieth birthday, and the nightclub was too young for us to really join in, which was my fault, not the night club's. The views from the Moon Bar were fabulous, but very crowded. This is probably a better package for a younger generation! However, they did take away the pass for the Playboy and Moon, so you can only use it once.

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This tour was great - very informative, providing information about the dam and Vegas, but also was very entertaining as the guide tried to get everyone involved. No one was put on the spot, but everyone joined in with the quizzes and questions. The guide knew everyone by name and made sure that we all found out what we wanted to know, plus a bot. The group was small enough so as you could get close to hear his talk and large enough for us all to have some fun. Lunch at Boulder City was very good with plenty of choice. Very good, would definitely recommend.

Barcelona Hop-on Hop Off Tour: North to South Route

Barcelona, Spain

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

My Review
The buses are great, and it's an ideal way of seeing Barcelona. The upstairs parts of the buses are always busy, and you may have to wait a long time to get a seat. They do run often, so it depends how busy it is as to how long you wait. However, you have to queue to transfer the Viator voucher for the bus ticket, and this took a lot longer than just buying the ticket at the bus stop. We were there over Easter weekend, so it was probably busier than normal, but this queue took forever!
