Sydney and Bondi Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour was OK, but I've taken many of this type of tour that were much better. The better ones have live guides pointing the sites out. This one had a pre-recorded spiel that often did not match what we were actually seeing. Also, we were shocked when the bus drove by the Sydney Opera House and no comment was made about it. We had to wait for the bus to drive by a second time before mention was even made of the world-known building.

Bangkok Canals Cruise including Grand Palace and Wat Arun

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I had ascertained proper dress for this tour the day before. I was told that my arms and knees had to be covered. I had previously visited many temples so I knew that it was OK to wear a tunic without sleeves provided that I had a shawl to cover my arms for the visit. For the bottom I was told to wear long pants so since I was wearing a tunic, I wore leggings. Instead of greeting us upon our arrival, our guide began giving me heck about the way I was dressed. She said a shawl and leggings were totally unacceptable for the visit to the Grand Palace. She then went to talk to her guide colleagues, pointing at me and complaining - everyone was looking at me. I got so upset I told her to forget the Palace Visit and to just do the canal cruise. We enjoyed the canal cruise, but the encounter with the guide had totally soured our tour. We are also completely disappointed that we never did get to visit the Palace.

Bali Sunset Dinner Cruise

Bali, Indonesia

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

My Review

This was not a spectacular activity. The sunset was nice, but lasted all of 15 minutes. After that, it was dinner (mediocre buffet) and entertainment (tacky cabaret-like show). We were glad it ended early.

Dublin Traditional Irish House Party including Dinner and Show

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Although this was not what we expected, it turned out to be one of the best experiences we had in Dublin. The dinner was simple but good. After dinner we were taken to a theatre across the street. There we enjoyed the best Irish musical performances we had ever heard.

It was a very well-organized tour. Although it was very long, it went by quickly and was a lot of fun. Our tour guide/driver kept us entertained with a lot of interesting information and good humour.

We find that hop on and off tours are an excellent way of getting to know a city. The drivers were knowledgeable and interesting. The stops were well chosen.
