Boston Duck Tour

Boston, Massachusetts

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had an enjoyable and informative tour of Boston by a knowledgable and witty guide. The Duck Boat was a unique way to see the town and we look forward to taking other Duck Boat tours in the future.

Grand Salzburg City Tour including Hellbrunn Palace and 24 Hour Salzburg Card

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A good "quick look" at the city from inside a smaller van with a knowledgable guide. The 24 hour Salzburg card allowed me to go back and visit a few museums and attractions for free admission, so that was a good addition/

Tour/Activity

Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

My Review

Oh my. Quite a disappointment. The double-deck tour bus was completely full, so that many people wending our way through the little towns (in the rain) was difficult. The earphone cord used for the bus tour was a little too short for the person sitting on the aisle. Mine came out of my ear every time the gentleman to my left moved.
The tour was nice, and we saw all that was advertized. But... it was too commercial; after the wooden shoe making demo, there was the gift shop; after the boat ride there was the very tourist-y street with cheap food stands and junky shops; after the cheese-making demo, there was the very commercial cheese 'tasting' (and buying) opportunity.
Our tour guide was EXCELLENT and made up for the commercialism of the tour a little.

Amsterdam Airport Shared Arrival Transfer

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a life-saver, since I had no idea of how to get from Schipol airport to my apartment in Amsterdam. After meeting my driver at the "red and yellow boxes", I was swiftly taken right to my doorstep. The driver even carried my bags up the treacherously narrow three flights of stairs!

Skip the Line: Amsterdam and Holland Pass

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

An excellent idea, but a little misleading. It was a little like the old Disneyland ticket books: you get a book of tickets, but only a few are for the most prized attractions. In this case, we got a strip of tickets, but only two earned us free admission to the top museums. Two more were for less popular attractions, and the last one was completely useless. That being said, we were able to take a canal tour, get into the Reikes Museum, the Van Gogh museum, and the Amsterdam museum for free admission. We got to jump ahead of the others in the long lines, and we got a good discount on admission to three other attractions.
