Small-group WWI Somme Battlefields Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a great small-group (only 7 of us) tour, especially for Aussie tourists. Our guide Rupert showed us several memorials where Aussie Diggers now rest, we had time to walk around and take in the atmosphere. The Memorials are beautifully maintained and it is a very moving experience to visit these sights. The itinery is available on this site so I won't rattle off everything we did, just to say it was well worth the trip to the Somme, something I will not forget.

Barcelona Half-Day Bike Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The bicycle tour of Barcelona was one of my favourite throughout a recent trip to Europe. Our guide Paola was delightful, she had a good sense of humour and provided us with plently of interesting information about Barcelona. The tour covered plently of major sights and scenery during the 4 hours as well as a nice seaside stop at lunchtime. I would recommend this tour to anyone who can ride a bicycle as a great way to see the city.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Fortunately our visit was on an afternoon not too crowded. Our guide Marina shared with us plenty of intersting information on this tour - she was lovely and really a wealth of knowledge on all things Vatican. St Peter's Bascilia is like nothing else I've ever seen - so elaborate. I enjoyed the tour. Make sure you wear comfortbale shoes - there is ALOT of standing and slow-paced walking involved.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

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

My Review

Mixed feelings about this tour. The islands were nice however the getting there and back on the boat was a little tiresome. Our 'guide' giving the commentary enroute was doing so in 4 different languages which became just a blur of words which were barely decipherable. I have nothing but admiration for her in providing so much information in 4 languages however, it didn't make for an easy-listening commentary and I felt alot of the English sections were lost in a hurried mess between Italian, Spanish and French.
I wouldn't say this tour is a 'must do' in Venice, particularly Murano - all the same glass products are available in Venice itself and some at cheaper prices. I didn't really like the way everyone was 'hearded' through the giftshop in order to exit after the glass-blowing display. I found Burano (lace) boring and Torcello - not much doing there. It's not the worst tour in the world but it's not the best either.

Munich Bike Tour

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a really lovely bike tour of Munich, our guide Amanda was very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the ‘surfing river’ and the ride through the park.
The only negative was that the tour felt quite rushed and there seemed to be much of Munich we didn’t get to see in the time we had. Perhaps a longer tour would be more beneficial.

I really enjoyed this tour for the WWII history. Our guide Joe was absolutely delightful and very knowledgeable. We visited many major sights on this tour as well as a lunch break at a beer garden. It was a great way to see Berlin and enjoy the outdoors.

Full-Day Bruny Island Tour from Hobart

Hobart, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Well organised, great staff. Unfavourable weather meant we didn't reach the seal or penguin colonies which was very disappointing. However, the rough conditions made the boat trip an adventure in itself. I would deinately do it again under better weather conditions.
