Singapore Round-Island Tour with Changi Prison, Kranji War Memorial and Gardens by the Bay

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I have been to Singapore many times and this is the first time I have taken a tour and it was well worth it I discovered many things I did not know. The Tiger Balm Gardens where great, Lunch was good (included) and the Changi Museum was worth seeing. If you have some spare time I would do this trip. Our Guide was great and very passionate about Singapores History.

Luxembourg Day Trip from Brussels: Two Countries in One Day

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Bus is late leaving again (3 trips with this company always late) , first stop is Mardasson Memorial where the "Battle of The Bulge " took place very moving , a couple of little stops along the way and then we are in the capital Grand-Duchy we do a tour of the modern city and then we stop for lunch (not included) lots of choices for places to eat. After lunch we continue to the historical centre and then have some free time to browse and do a bit of shopping. Then it is back on the bus for the Long Trip back to Brussels. Our Guide and driver where both great I dont think they missed a point of interest along the way. Wonderful day Luxembourg is a really beautiful place. A little bit of walking on this tour but not to bad.

Amsterdam Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

As this was suppose to be a 12 1/2 Day trip getting away late was not a good start. At last we are on the way the guide is very informative and points out all the interesting spots along the way we cross the Border and find our first Windmill (Photo Stop) we head to a local craft centre, Clog Making, Cheese and Pottery but by the time everyone uses the toilet the stop was really pointless. Back on the bus we head for Amsterdam our first stop is the Canal Boat Ride a must do( about 8Euro if I remember correctly) after the ride we are back on the bus head for the town square given a departure time and off you go to explore , Lunch then the Red Light District a bit of shopping, photos then it is back to the bus for the LONG trip back to Brussels. This trip only ended up being 11 Hours which is quite annoying as an extra Hour or so in Amsterdam would have been great. If you have time it is a good tour but a lot of time spent on the bus

Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a great trip Ghent was a very interesting little town but Bruges is just amazing, something different at every corner. The Canal Boat trip is well worth it even though it takes about 45mins of your time ( optional extra ) . This tour involves lots of walking on cobblestone streets like I have never seen before so wear very comfortable shoes and if you don't like walking this trip is not for you. But in saying that if you didnt walk around the towns you would not see half of their beauty or history. Our Guide was great and could answer every question thrown at him. If you do no other trip in Belgium this one is a must

Moulin Rouge Paris Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If there where more than 5 Stars I would give it. We did the dinner and show and had the most amazing seats right in front of the stage, we did do the most expensive menu and I think that is how the seating is done according to how much you pay. I had read some reviews before I left and was getting a little worried sure they put a lot of people in and you are sitting very close together but the show is well worth it and anyone who dosn't like it is very very hard to please. No Photos are allowed and don't wear a jacket as they where making some people check them and also it is not cold inside (maybe winter could be a bit different). The food wasn't bad either for a place serving mass meals in such a short time. The steak on the menu we had was cooked to perfection. The Dancers and Singers where just fantastic as where the support acts but the French Can Can was AWESOME. I would go again in a heartbeat FANTASTIC

My Review

The bus is easy to get around but you need to make sure you are on the right bus and unlike other hop on hop off buses there is no commentary so you need to use the headsets and keep your eye on what stop you want. But good value for money as it was a 2 day pass

Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The River Cruise was really good it was nice watching paris light up from the River and the information on the boat was very informative, the Illumination Tour was good even though we had seen some of the stuff on the boat our driver was a lot of fun and put a different aspect on things. The highlight of this was The Arc de Truimph at night as we could not see this from the boat and all lit up it was beautiful. Would recommend especially for people on a tight time frame

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a 14hour trip and once again the tour left a little late which is quite annoying when you have to up for a said 7.00am departure but never mind we where on the way and had a very nice tour guide who understood that everyone was a little tierd so after initial information left us alone for a while to just enjoy the scenery. Our first stop was Casen Memorial and Museum it was very well presented and easy to follow around and quite interesting. We had lunch here which is included and was very delicious even the wine was included. After lunch we head of to the beaches of Normandy firstly to Omaha Beach and then the Visitors Centre and thenoff to Juno. We then make the long trek back to Paris about a 3 1/2 hour drive. This was a great trip.

Burgundy Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a 12 Hour trip so it was very annoying that the bus was running late and instead of leaving at 7.45am we did not get away till aprrox 8.15 but there where only 7 people on this day so it was good. The guide was very informative about the wine region we where going to. As it was a long drive to Chablis we did have a quick stop on the way for a coffee/toilet. Arriving in Chablis we went straight to the Cellar for a tour and some tasting, after this we did a tour of the town by foot before returning to The Cellar Door to have lunch in the restaurant this is included in the price but drinks are not. After lunch we travelled to Vezalay to The Basilica of St Mary Magdalene what a beautiful and interesting place and had free time to roam around the village then back on the bus for the long trip back to Paris. I would recommend this trip even if you are not interested in wine the rest of the trip was amazing

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Highy recommend Skip the line Tickets otherwise you could be waiting quite a while to get entry to the Tower. Our guide was very informative and was also an Aussie he pointed out everything you could see from the first level of the tower and had really done his research on French history I was very impressed. After the tour finished we went up to the second level and then walked the few steps to the top AWESOME but very windy. We came back down to level one and had lunch at Eiffel 58 good value for money and what an amazing view. If you do not do anything else you have to go to The Top of The Eiffel Tower. Highly Recommend

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

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The weather is a bit overcast but that should be OK. we head off towards the Scottish Highlands towards Glencoe once again we have a very informative guide and the stories he tells about some of the Clan battles makes you feel like you are there. With a couple of stops along the way we arrive in Fort Augustus for lunch we chose the local Chippy and let me tell you the fish and chips where the best I have had in a long time. We did the 1 hour cruise on the Loch this is not included but well worth it as we had to look for "Nessie" . Well all back on the bus for the trip back to Edinburgh with lots of interesting little stops along the way. Highly Recommend this trip.

Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond Small Group Day Trip from Edinburgh

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The weather today was not good typical Scottish Summer but never mind that cannot be helped. We headed off to Stirling Castle and unfortunately when we got there it could not have rained any harder but it was still great to see with some good views but not to many great photos. After a coffee to warm us off we headed off towards Loch Lomond we seem to go through a few seasons every corner we turned bought different weather but the countryside was some of the most beautiful I have seen photos do not do it justice. The heather had also just come into bloom so the hillsides where a mass of purple. We had a little while to lunch in a cute place call Aberfoyle and wander around thankfully the weather was a bit kinder. After lunch we started to head back to Edinburgh with a few stops along the way and lots of history lessons from another passionate and well informed Scotmans. I recommend this tour.

My Review

Where to begin I guess with the guide he was very passionate about his beloved Scotland as well as being very well informed. We headed off through the beautiful Scottish Border countryside towards our first stop which was Melrose a very pretty little town with a very interesting Abbey.We had a couple of stops along the way one to see The Statue of "Wallace" and our guide played us a couple of tunes on his bagpipes it was really great. After Lunch in a cute local restaurant we headed off to Rosslyn Chapel with a couple of little stops along the way ths chapel was the site of parts of The Da Vinci Code. We headed back to Edinburgh after a very interesting day would highly recommend this trip.

The skip the line tickets are well worth the money unless you are going to be there when The Tower opens to avoid the lines. There is a lot to see here so allow some time. The Crown Jewels are amazing but just wandering around and going in and out of all the towers is awesome.

Windsor Castle Tour from London with Lunch

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was only a short trip to Windsor and we had a very chatty guide so the time passed very quickly. Once at Windsor Castle we had quite a bit of free time to explore the Castle we where lucky as The Changing of the Guard was on the day we where there. Lunch at Harrods was quite a surprise the food was delicious and the Georgian Restaurant was really beautiful. Great trip only half a day which gives you the afternoon free we used it to explore Harrods.

Our first stop was Bath and The Roman Baths what an amazing place we had time to wander through the Baths and also to take a quick look at The Town Square before getting back on the bus for our next stop which was Salisbury. The Cathedral was one of the most beautiful I have seen and well worth the look. We then headed of to Stonehenge the weather had turn a little cold and windy but still a truly amazing sight. This trip is well worth making an effort to do.

Leeds Castle Private Viewing, Canterbury and Greenwich Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Unfortunately the bus driver we had got lost on the way so we missed the private viewing by about 15 minutes not very happy about that but we did have pleanty of time to explore The Castle. Canterbury Cathedral was just awesome and we had time for a bit of a wander around the town. Because of Olympics the Greenwich part of the trip was a bit of a washout as everything was fenced off and we had to take a very long trek to get the boat for the sunset cruise back which was also very disappointing as it was just a normal ferry No Scones, Muffin instead and the worst coffee I have ever tasted.
