Normandy Battlefields Tour - American Sites

Bayeux, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

/very well organized - on time pick-up - saw a lot in a day.
We shared a van with 5 others and it was a good size group, however we sat in the back so it was difficult to hear our guide's commentary.

She (our guide) was very knowledgeable but it was difficult at times to hear (in the vehicle) and/or understand her and she had a pretty strong accent.
We got to see everything we wanted and feel this was a very worthwhile tour for us.

Versailles Small-Group Tour from Paris with Audio Guide

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Crazy driver - just picked us up at our hotel (late), zoomed over to Versailles, dropped us off for 2 hours, then picked us up and zoomed back to our hotels. Whew !
For what we wanted, it was a good tour however we didn't have time to stop and take anything in because our time there was so short.
I definitely recommend taking the morning tour because by the time we left to returnn to our hotel (11:00 am.) the line was VERY long.

If you want to see more and spend more time, I would recommend the full day tour.

I would say the price / value for this tour was not good compared to other tours we did on this trip. It seemed excessive for what we got.

Seine River Cruise, Paris Illuminations and Dinner on the Champs-Elysees

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very pleasantly surprised.
My husband and I were wondering how all of this could be included in the price we paid for this tour but were pleasantly surprised. The tour group did such a nice job putting this together.

Although it was a large group, which we don't usually like to do, it wasn't bad because everything was so well organized and the bus was nice and comfortable. The river cruise was as expected.

We didn't really expect to have such an extensive city tour after the river cruise but it was interesting and we were furnished with headsets so we could listen to commentary in our language of choice.

Although it was quite late by the time we arrived at the restaurant, which was very nice, the dinner was excellent with a good menu, good quality food and a nice bottle of wine included. We had our own table, which was nice because I expected we would have to sit at a table with the other guests who took the dinner option on the tour.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening.

Great fun! I would definitely recommend doing this. We saw a lot in a short period of time, had a nice lunch, and the price/value for the tour was great. Our guide was knowledgeable, English speaking, (an American) and did a great job looking out for us in the crazy Paris traffic.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was very convenient to have this arranged upon our arrival. The driver was there to pick us up within 20 minutes after I phoned from the airport.

There were 6 other passengers in the vehicle so expect to spend some time driving around the city dropping them off before you get to your destination. One woman had been in the car for over 2 hours before she got to her hotel.

We expected this and we couldn't get checked into our hotel any sooner, so it worked out. We arrived at our hotel about 90 minutes after we were picked up.

It would be nice if they could coordinate their routes a little better.

Capri Day Trip with Lunch from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The organization of this tour was a fiasco! We were picked up by a van in disrepair; the driver and helper were very unprofessional, alarms sounding off the whole way, broken seats, driving around the city for 90 minutes picking people up before even heading out to Pompeii. The tour was overbooked so we couldn't even ride on the nice bus to get there but had to go on in this delapidated van. Once we got there, the group was so large and the guide had to translate in English and French. It was hard to hear and we missed out on a lot of information we would have liked to have had. I don't recommend this ... book a more private tour.

Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was the second part of the tour to Pompeii. We only had 8 people total so it was fine. The transportation was nice but our tour guide was sulking because of the fiasco we experienced in the morning so she was not very talkative and gave only limited information to us on the ride up to where we could walk to the top. It's definitely worth the tour, but there needs to be a guide that can be a "tour guide" and not just someone that takes you to and from a destination.

Although a large group, this trip was very well organized, the bus was nice, and I definitely recommend the afternoon tour because there were absolutely no lines. We got to see a lot and our guide provided us with headsets so we could hear her commentary.

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

My Review

This is a good way to see a lot in a short period of time but it was pretty unprofessional. The bikes were okay although have had a lot of use and a little neglected ... could have been better. Our guide was knowledgeable but seemed to talk down" to us... not very polished. I realize this is a bike tour, but it could be a little more professional.
