Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a great way to gain an overview of Tokyo also was great value for money. Our tour guide Mai was very knowledgeable and she spoke English very well (albeit with a Canadian inflection!!!) I recommend this tour to anyone who wants a relaxing overview of Tokyo.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The guide was very knowledgeable and managed the group well. The Vatican was crowded and very hot. This tour would be better done when the weather was cooler and the Vatican not so crowded. The 'skip the line part' worked well. No photography is allowed in the Sistine Chapel however lots of people were taking photographs and using flash as well. The guards only made a token effort to stop them. Generally I was disappointed with the Vatican. The staff were unhelpful and the outside area was littered with cigarette buts. The art work was magnificent and worth seeing.

Czech Spas of Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne from Prague

Prague, Czech Republic

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

My Review

The tour guide didn't provide any information about the countryside we were driving through however was knowledgeable about the spa towns and the history. The lunch in Karlovy Vary was awful. The spa towns were beautiful and the architecture was wonderful and the tour was a good way to see some of the magnificent scenery in the Czech Republic but not really a great tour.

Guide was informative and helpful. Bus/seat allocation at the beginning of the tour was a bit disorganised. This was a great way to get an overview of Prague.

Malaysia Johore Bahru Half-Day Tour from Singapore

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

There was no commentary provided on the Singapore leg of the trip which would have really enhanced the tour. Considerable time is spent clearing immigration. The tour guide in Malaysia was knowledgeable and interesting, however the condition of the garden was disappointing. The driver was friendly and helpful

Singapore's Chinatown Trishaw Night Tour

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining (Andrew), The trishaw ride, the boat tour and the visit to Chinatown were great. You will need more time in Chinatown if you want to really shop!!! We were disappointed in the restaurant. It was clean and airconditioned however the staff were rather unhelpful and just delivered the meal to the table. The young woman who poured our tea spilled it on three occasions on the table cloth and didn't murmer one word of apology. One of the dishes was sweet and sour fish (the sauce tasted as though it came from a jar) and we were not offered a clean plate for the other courses and the staff were not available to ask. The other courses were very different so the taste was ruined by the rather overwhelming sweet and sour sauce. The dessert was served in a cheap takeaway plastic dish with a plastic spoon! (the desert tasted great) This restaurant was the only place in Singpore where we found the staff to be unhelpful - in fact they looked as though they would have preferred we were not there. The restaurant was not busy. Only one other table (other than the three for the tour group) was occupied. The dinner spoiled an otherwise great tour

Singapore by Night Tour with Dinner along Singapore River

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The dinner at Clarke Quay was great. Good menu and pleasant helpful despite the fact that the restaurant was fairly busy. I was a little disappointed with Raffles but am really glad I went there. I found the bar far to noisy as they had a live band. The Singapore Sling was great. The visit to the market was too short for any serious shopping but a good way to find what is there for a longer visit on another day

Singapore City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Typical hop on hop off tour. It was a great way to get a quick overview of Singapore. The recorded tour commentary was sometimes difficult to hear and understand and some of the music was uncomfortably loud. I have been on these tours in other cities and found the commentary easier to hear and understand. However this is worth doing and is good value. The staff were helpful.

Singapore Night Safari with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The concept was great and we could see the animals in the soft lighting. We went on a weekend and had to rush dinner (which was ok but not great), had to wait 45 minutes (standing in a very long line in the heat) for the tram ride which was then rushed. We then only had time for a very rushed 'walk' to the fishing cats. We had no time to see one of the night shows. Also watch the ice cream prices - we paid $17.50 for two ice creams (they tasted really good!). If you want to go I suggest going on a week night and don't have dinner there so there is time to see a show and go on at least one of the walks. The walks are the best way to really experience the animals.
