Oxford, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review

Our local tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable and witty. Oxford was very interesting, so much history. Stratford upon Avon was also fabulous, the Shakespeare centre is very well done and the town centr very quaint.

Unfortunately I found Warwick Castle a complete and utter disappointment. It has been turned inti a theme park which is probably ideal for young children. The promised afternoon tea was an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment. In short tea you had to make yourself with Luke warm water and cheap tea bags. Plastic knives and plates for scones we waited 15 minutes for. When then they they were very cold and rock hard. Jam and cream were slopped in a bowl and had to be passed from table to table - I can only describe it as appallaling. I walked out and went into the beautiful little town centre, saw an incredible church that contains so much history then went to a lovely little tea shop and bought my own delightful afternoon tea. I strongly recommend anyone doing this tour to do the same.

Warwick castle ruined what was otherwise a brilliant day out.

viator - I strongly suggest you look into this as both the tour guide and driver said this was the normal level of service provided by the staff at the castle.

London's Chocolate Walking Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

After an initial hitch of the guide having no record of our booking (fortunately I had confirmation with me) we set off to sample chocolates (and icecream) at a number of top end chocolate shops. I think I tried two of the best chocolates I've ever had - Paul Young's shop is amazing. It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon in London. The guide was very entertaining and had a great sense of humour.

Skip the Line: Florence in One Day Sightseeing Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our guide from Rome to Florence was lovely, unfortunately I can't say the same for the local guide in Florence. That said, Florence is a beautiful city and well worth the journey. This is an excellent way to cram a lot in if you are limited by time. If you only see one art treasure in this world make sure it is "David" - absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! The lunch was really good as well.

Rome Arrival Shuttle Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Do not bother with this service, it was appalling. Catch a taxi, there is a set charge so you know how much you will be paying.

I'm loathe to give this even one star, we were kept waiting at the airport for 2 1/2 hours until the shuttle arrived, it then dropped us nearly 3km from our hotel. We then had to get a taxi as we couldn't struggle with our luggage. The driver was rude and uphelpful and not a great way to start our holiday. Fortunately this was the only hitch to our trip.
