Great morning. Didn't believe the large cateman ferry we were on would fit through the Hole in the Rock, but it did - tight but Captain did a great job. It was a very full cruise but there was space for everyone to see. Great stop on island for walk to hilltop lookout.

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Gondola ride good. There is a group of about 6 gondolas go out with about 4 passengers each. Music/seranade only goes on 1 boat so if you a looking for a more personable thing, just hire a gondola for Euro 80 for 30 minutes.
As usual the gondolo groups were running late and it was suppose to leave at 3:30pm and did not leave until 4:10pm.

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

Don't bother with tour. Better taking ferry to Murano and Burano islands and spend a bit more time at each. Torcello only had a church and you had to walk about 800m to it to see it and then walk back. You could not understand tour guide on the ferry even though it was in English - the ferry was so noisey and she spoke on a microphone from the front of the ferry - couldn't understand or hear what she said. Murano for glass factories and Burano for lace making - islands good to see but don't bother with tour.

English guide good but didn't get to skip the line to see the San Marco Church. We didn't even go inside as the queue was too long and there was no special line during Carnivale for groups. Tour only takes you from San Marco through to Rialto which you can see most of walking via the walkways.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Guide was great and really knew her history. The actual cost to enter the catacombs on your own is Euro 8 or about AUD$13.00 so considering the cost of AUD $57.00 it was a pretty mean mark up with there was a group of 19 people. Consider getting a local guide direct.

Provence Wine Tasting Small Group Day Trip from Avignon

Avignon, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
The guide was great for the morning part with the wine tasting. Then we had to sit on a bus for 2 hours whilst we dropped people off and picked more people up to see the rest of the tour. It was suppose to be a full day tour. Why couldn't they drop us off in Avignon so we could have lunch whilst they did this???? The guide had no input at all for the afternoon vists to Gordes, Les Baux de Provence (needed at least 2 hrs there not the 45 minutes given) and Pont du Gard, just dropped us off and said to wander. Very lacking afternoon part. Why couldn't the wine tasting be in the afternoon - much better to drink wine at 2pm than at 10am!!!!

Tour was good but would have have seen and done things in different order. Guide had a limited and very rehearsed commentary. The food shops we visited were all in a row without breaks to see something else in between. So we had so much to eat it was difficult to taste things at the last couple of shops.

Just a great way to view Melbourne at night. Late dinner is best and food good. The waiter was a bit too familiar considering it was Silver Service and some of his comments not warrented. However, very enjoyable.
