Private Entrance to Széchenyi Spa in Budapest with Optional Massage

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great spa for a sunny day as there was plenty of room outside as well as pools inside. Cabin for changing made it much easier and the massage I had was very good. Situated in a park and surrounded by plenty of other things to do and look at as well. If time is limited it would probably be worth going in later in the day as it stays open until 10PM, and that way there would be time to spend in either of the two museums near by.
Well worth the visit.

Budapest Combo: Hop-On Hop-Off Tour, Sightseeing Cruise and Hungarian Lunch or Dinner

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

There are several reasons why I would not recommend this option.
There information on tickets and where to go for the various elements is not clear. The tickets were not left at the hotel. They were however e-mailed after the hotel contacted Viator on our behalf, but without any instructions relating to the two venues for the meal and coffee. This is not however the reason why I would not recommend the combo.
The problem is just that it was very poor value. The Hop on Hop off bit was fine - but could have been bought for about £15. This already included the river boat 'trip' which was 45 minutes in reality, but OK. I would recommend that people do this in Budapest as it is good for seeing all the main tourist sites.The cafe for the coffee and cake was very nice, but the restaurant for the meal was very off the beaten track and the meal was not very good and had no choice at all. So in terms of the extra money paid for the other bits I thoughts it was very poor value and not a good choice.

Grand Canyon West Rim Air and Ground Day Trip from Las Vegas with Optional Skywalk

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a great way to see the Grand Canyon, particularly if you don't want to spend time on the road to do it. The ariel views were great and everyone had a window seat for the short flight. The Canyon itself was magnificent and the sky walk well worth doing for the spectacular views.
I do have a grumble though. I had booked to go on the 2 PM trip because we had plans for the morning and also I particularly wanted to benefit from the later afternoon light for photography. Therefore disappointed to be told we would be picked up at 10am from the hotel for the mid day flight and there was nothing that would make them correct that. Also this meant that as we also picked up from several hotels for the helicopter tour en route( and these seemed to depart before our flight) actually it still took in excess of 3 hours from Hotel to Canyon - not much of a time saving really.
Still spectacular views that couldn't be missed even if it did mean rearranging our planned morning activities.
My advice would be to be very specific and get written confirmation of flight times if they matter to you. Other than that it was a great experience.

Fantastic show that has you engrossed from start to finish. I would recommend this show above all others in Vegas. If you can only see one show - make it "O"

Red Rock Canyon Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The guide was friendly and humorous and kept the party well informed. The visit to the canyon was excellent. However, in our opinion, more time should have been given to the excellent visitor facility for Red Rock Canyon and the canyon itself, and far less to the ranch. In reality, lunch was not needed on this trip and the lunch break just unnecessarily extended the tour and dragged it out that little bit longer than needed. But in terms of the canyon, very much worth seeing.

Hoover Dam Hummer Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent trip; knowledgeable and informative guide who managed the tour to make effective use of everyones time. The dam is very much worth visiting in its own right and going by hummer was a fun twist that got us there ahead of the crowds. Would recommend this trip.
