Kyoto Small-Group Cultural Experience: Calligraphy or Origami Class

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Booked this class for my husband, teenage son and self. Very enjoyable time was had by all of us. We complete three origami shapes which got progressively more difficult. We had a lot of fun and would happily do this class again.

Tokyo Morning Tour: Meiji Shrine, Senso-ji Temple and Ginza Shopping District

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tours to the Meiji Shrine and Senso-ji Temple were very informative. Found the Ginza shopping district section just a pass by on the coach and had no sense of what the area was about. Most of the shops we saw from the coach were no different from those found in London.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

Booked this especially for my teenage son and although they found the location of the session a bit of a surprise (its in a slightly industrial area) both he and my husband really enjoyed their session.

Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train Day Trip from Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Completed this on the first day of the new climbing season so there were camera crews and monks present. Unfortunately, the mountain did not co-operate on our visit and not only cloud but a blanket of rain during our visit so nothing was visible. The trip to Lake Ashi was pleasant. The journey back to Tokyo was our first experience of the Shinkensen and what an introduction.

Juneau Shore Excursion: Exclusive Pack Creek Bear Viewing from Juneau

Juneau, Alaska

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Booked this for husband and son and it was the most amazing trip they have ever been on. They absolutely recommend it and their guide was very good. I have seen footage and pictures from their trip and it was mind blowing. It is expensive but worth every penny.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Link Departure Transfer

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a little early and for reasons unknown our transfer was brought forward by 25 minutes. This was a good transfer, less bumpy that our arrival transfer. We were fortunate as we were picked up from our hotel on Guidecca Island and had a very pleasant tour of Venice outer islands on the trip to pick up the other family on our transfer. We were all treated to going down the canal at Murano Island.

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was the best of all the tours. Entry was before general admission so it was a great opportunity for taking photos which would have been impossible later. The tour really takes you to the parts of the building not accessible with a general ticket. We went right up into the roof space as the structure explains the absence of pillars in room below. Our guide was very good although by the time we got to main parts of the building think she had run out of things to say. Another trip to explain the main parts of the building would have been helpful as do not feel there was sufficient time to fully appreciate some of the art works but really recommend.

Skip the Line: St Mark's Square Highlights Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Had to really press our guide to explain more details about the square and explain the history of the architecture. Our guide was friendly but things felt a little rushed. That said, going back to San Marco a second time as very helpful especially after doing the walking tour. If I have one criticism it is that St Marks really deserves a tour in its own right along the lines of that to the Doges Palace. Although we could have done this on our own, we found the observations of a guide a better investment.

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

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a good introduction to Venice and would be a good starter tour before embarking on more specialist tours such as Doges. There is a lot of walking on this tour, it is not stop not even time for a comfort break as it goes at a pace.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Link Arrival Transfer

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There were 4 of us on this transfer. The other couple were staying at the same hotel as ourselves. Absolutely recommend pre-booking. An American group of 4 ahead of us when at the airport were quoted 300 Euros for a transfer which was just a mind numbing amount.
