If you want to view the sights in this beautiful Italian city, then there’s no better way than to board the Verona Hop on-Hop off bus and relax in the comfort of the open top deck.

Skip the Line: London Dungeon

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
If you want to walk in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, London’s most notorious serial killer, sit in Sweeny Todd’s infamous barber’s chair or face the hangman’s drop at Newgate Prison, then the London Dungeon is the place for you. Not for the squeamish or for those of a nervous disposition, you will travel back in time to a London teetering on the edge of collapse from disease, pestilence and man-made disasters.

Jack the Ripper Tour and London Ghost Walk

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
If you want to learn about the ghost that still stalks the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane and London’s most notorious killer, Jack the Ripper, the Jack the Ripper and London Ghost Walk is for you. Not for the faint-hearted, you travel by coach through the ancient heartland of Roman Londinium, past the Royal Courts of Justice and St. Pauls, through Fleet Street and the City before stopping at Whitechapel church in London’s East End, near Petticoat Lane market.

Private Half-Day Jerash and Amman City Sightseeing Tour

Amman, Jordan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The Private Half Day Jerash and Amman City Sightseeing Tour provides a dramatic insight into the extraordinary growth of two cities. Amman, the capital of Jordan, formerly known as Philadelphia, exploding from a small, sleepy town into a modern metropolis with 2.4 million people, almost half of the Kingdom’s population; and Jerash, a city of 30,000 at its zenith and one of the most important centres in the former Roman Empire.

Skip the Line: Hampton Court Palace Tickets

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Only thirty miles up the River Thames from the Tower of London and 35 minutes by train from Waterloo station stands one of Britain’s most magnificent palaces, Hampton Court Palace. Hampton Court is not just about the palace itself but its beautiful gardens and grounds stretching down to the River Thames.

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark’s Basilica is a tour of amazing contrasts. The first part covers the most important attractions in Venice around the bustling Piazza San Marco. In the second, you negotiate the labyrinth of alleyways and bridges over the canals to quiet secluded places and beautiful squares (campos) free from crowds. The route ends at the famous Rialto Bridge next to the Grand Canal.

Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Escape into the myriad of alleyways in San Marco, explore hidden Venice and glide effortlessly on a gondola down the Grand Canal. Learn the secrets of the construction of this jewel of the Adriatic and the race against time to preserve it and all its splendid magnificence. The Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride starts near St Mark’s Square and pauses in front of the Hotel Bauer, famous for the filming of Don’t Look Now starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. You follow a narrow alleyway, the crowds disappear and Venice’s famous opera house, La Fenice suddenly emerges. The birthplace of Verdi’s La Traviata, it was destroyed in an arson attack in 1996, but completely re-built using the exact original plans. Hence its name meaning The Phoenix.
