Private Transfer: Kuala Lumpur Departure Hotel to Airport Transfer

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

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

My Review

This was a private transfer but we were still made to stand around the arrivals hall (not the most pleasant terminal anyway) while the "pick-up" waited for others. Looooong trip into KL then the driver wasn't sure which hotel wing to go to.

We were picked up at precisely the agreed time and arrived at St Pancras in plenty of time to make our train. Could have done with a little bit less rush rush with the driving otherwise a pleasant way to catch a special train.

London St Pancras Eurostar Private Arrival Transfer

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We were picked up as we exited the Immigration gates at St Pancras by a very polite, well dressed man who identified himself to us by a clear, neat sign with our name on it. The vehicle was neat and clean and the drive was comfortable and safe. Unlike his French counterparts, he did not use his mobile phone or iPad while driving at stupid speeds! The only downside was the fact that, through no fault of the transfer company, it is a long walk with luggage to the parking area.

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

My Review

Driver was not visible at the baggage hall (this is not entirely his fault - Rome Airport is a dump) but others managed to be more visible. He had three shouting matches (including leaving the car with us still in it to remonstrate with other drivers) before we left the car park.

3-Day Trip to Delphi and Meteora from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The pick-up in the Plaka was a little scrambled but the young lady who attended recovered everything by the time we arrived at the main assembly hotel. The drive out of Athens and through the agricultural countryside was less than interesting but then agriculture is agriculture the world over, really. The tour guide, a nice man who was certainly well informed, did his best to make it interesting. Only when the Parnassus loomed into vie after a couple of hours did the drive become more interesting. Actually the defect with this tour is the very extensive driving involved, not really improved by the assurances that, once the freeway is completed, it will be a lot shorter. The distances really are substantial so if you don't like long trips in bus seats that don't recline and with air conditioning systems that don't really work, think about taking this tour again. The hotels (Amalia at both Delphi and Meteora) do both the accommodation and food well, particularly at Delphi in that stunning setting. The rush and bustle at the historical sites is off-putting but that is Greece today. I dread to think what Delphi would have been like peak season. Considering the time spent in a bus seat relative to the time spent at the sites, this is a loooooong, expensive bus ride broken by short periods of attendance at the historical sites and some very comfortable rest-overs in the selected hotels.

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Started out a little hot and cold on this tour. Pick-up and transfers to the "port" went fine but the apprehension set in when the "dock" was a dirt bank populated by stray cats and the "welcoming" music of the saxaphone and the bouzouki was too loud. Thereafter thanks to the blue Aegean sea and the fine weather, the day improved as we off-loaded at Hydra. We could well have passed Poros by as it has nothing to offer but tourist clip joints. Egina was a plus as the more traditional Greek fishing village. Lunch was ordinary but then most Greek food is. Again, we could easily have done without the "nightclub" entertainers. Lunch seating (supposedly reserved and in two sittings) was chaotic and in a single, crowded sitting. It makes for a long day generally and the farewell from the crew on the dirt bank at the end, accompanied by a most un-Greek rendition of Auld Lang Syne wasn't necessary or appreciated. Still, we felt Hydra and Egina made the tour worth the effort.

If we wanted to be met by a totally disinterested, mute driver who just wanted to get from a to b in the shortest possible time we could have taken a cab. We won't trouble that driver with our presence again.

Spent an inordinately long time driving around Dubai collecting people only to then drive a lot of the same roads as part of the tour. We shared the English tour with the German tour and, unfortunately for the tour guides, I know enough German to know that the Germans on the tour got the better of it. Won't do it again.

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

These Paris transfers always leave me in two minds as to their value for money but a couple of days of Paris traffic and the fact that you are never left at risk of not making your flight (or in this case, train) because they always pick you up at what seems ridiculously early times and I am convinced.

This transfer is good value. Our driver was on time, helpful and polite and drove at sensible speeds. The pick up time was sensible in relation to our flight departure time and we felt we were well served by our driver in a clean, well kept vehicle.

Behind the Scenes of a Boulangerie : French Bakery Tour in Paris

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Just superb! We had the most interested and informative tour guide who met us promptly at the boulangerie and we were initiated, educated and entertained in the finer points of baguette and croissant making by the happiest baker in Paris. Hats off to Le Petit Mitron for an excellent experience and a whole bunch of baguettes and croissants to take back to our hotel with us. Should not be missed if you are in Paris, want something different to do and love french bread the way we do!

Barcelona Airport Departure Shuttle Transfer

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

As always with these transfers, one is left wondering, by the time you circle Barcelona to pick up two other sets of passengers for what is really only a short run to Barcelona Airport and leave your hotel three hours before your flight, whether or not a cab would have been just as (or more) suitable, particularly early in the morning as thos one was. On this occasion I would have gone with the cab if I had known what would be involved. I always get the distinct impression with some of these shared shuttle transfers that they are organised as to time and route to suit the transfer company and not me. I know I can arrange a private transfer if I want personal service but I just feel that the compromise on convenience and cost is all one way with some of these shared transfers.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Orly Airport (ORY)

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was your typical Paris arrival shared shuttle transfer where you have to call from a pay phone (when you find one), be told to wait 15 - 20 minutes at the arrivals gate that always seems to also be used by all the smokers, actually wait 30 minutes then face a hair raising trip at speed into the City. If Paris' airports weren't so far away from where we want to go in the City, I'd take a cab.

Barcelona Day Trip: Montserrat, Colonia Guell and Gaudi Crypt

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We only took this tour for the Gaudi parts and it proved to be a pretty accurate assessment of the value in the tour. Monserrat on a holiday Tuesday was a giant bore. The Colonia Guell walking tour was interesting though the Gaudi crypt visit was rushed and uninformative. I don't know who thought Spanish "champagne" was a good idea at 10 o'clock in the morning but it isn't.

Madrid City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour delivers nearly everything that it promises. There are numerous opportunities to swap from one route to another and the commentary over those horrible ear phones is informative and comprehensive. The only criticism would be the way the busses tend to bunch up towards the end of the day with some big gaps between the bunches as a result.

Madrid Airport Arrival Shuttle Transfer

This transfer was just adequate. The student manning the desk was humourless and bored and we were given the distinct impression that the delay in leaving the terminal was due to some horsetrading by the driver to take some non-paying or less-paying extras from someone else.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This transfer is one I dread having done it four times in the last two months. You wait longer than promised because the shuttle service is consolidating as many trippers into the bus as they possibly can and circulating around all those terminals at CDG takes a fair bit of time. Then you face some of the most ridiculous driving on the planet. Twice our driver spent half the trip on his mobile phone and once we had a driver who used his iPad at over 100 km an hour with eight passengers on board. If there are more than two of you, take a cab!

The illuminations tour is so-so mostly because of the rules about where buses can or can't go or can or can't stop, I guess. The Moulin Rouge show is excellent.
