Wish I had booked this on the front end of our trip instead of the last day. Weather was great and this form of transportation was priceless!

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Audio Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I may not be the best one to rate this, but first of all, if you go in the morning, there are not any long lines. It took me longer to run to the location and get the tickets and Audio gear than it would have if we had just gone right to the Louvre and rented their system. Second, there were only 10 or 12 art pieces that are featured on the audio tour. The third and this is where it's no ones fault, but should be mentioned; my husband needed a wheel chair and the Louvre is old and has been retro-fitted with "Lifts" and they are not user friendly.

Paris Paradis Latin Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a lot of fun, but you are packed in there like sardines. The champagne is good, the wine was just so-so and the meal very mediocre. We were celebrating an anniversary so with another couple, we ordered another bottle of champagne. IT WAS 70 EURO!!! Buyer Beware!

Champagne Tasting on a Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was our first full day in Paris and we did not know we would have to wait 1/2 hr for a Taxi so we missed the Seine River Cruise Champagne Tasting by about 3 mins. They are on a tight schedule and do not wait for anyone. However, our friends made it on and said it was not drop jaw fabulous.They said the pour was very stingy but taste was good. Said it would be better and cheaper to buy a good bottle of Champagne and sit under the Eiffel Tower and drink it while looking over the River Seine. Just being honest.

Tapas Evening Walking Tour of Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a pleasant surprise! When we booked this tour, we thought we would just be doing a little tasting, drink a little sample and hopping to the next place. It was so much more and our Guide Nico, was not only passionate about Barcelona, but most informative about the food and what we should expect when ordering Tapas. Very pleasant evening and we all had fun!

Rome Segway Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a must experience. We had so much fun on this tour, the Segway is easy to handle and gets you "there" in 1/4 th the time it would take to walk. Our guide was not only a good teacher of the Segway, but very knowledgeable of Rome and it's beauty. He took us to places you could never get in to see on a tour bus and would not be able to find on foot on your own.
Book this tour! Ask for good directions to the headquarters, we had a little trouble finding it.

Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I thought this was going to be the highlight of our trip, but I'm going to be very honest in this review. The class was too crowded. 5 people at each station X 5 stations and one class of 5 in the kitchen. The head Chef was arrogant, condescending and over whelmed. He could barely keep up let alone give any individual instruction. The only new thing we learned was to make Gnocchi, all of us knew how to slice and dice, but he was very rude with his orders to do so. Knives were so dull you could hardly cut with them. There was supposed to be a wine paring, we got one bottle of red to share with 5 people at our table which equals less then one glass per person. The redemption of this class was that the Wait Staff/Assistants were very nice and friendly and the girls at our station from Oklahoma where a blast. To sum it up, no more than 4 people per station, and Chef, check your attitude and sharpen your knives!

Frascati Wine Tasting Tour from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was just great! Tiffany our guide was a delight and very knowledgeable and personable. The history and beauty of the vineyard was impressive and the wine, divine! The motor coach and driver are top notch. My one and only complaint was the meeting place. Just a little unsavory area, but the fact that we just didn't know where the exact pick up spot was going to be was a little unnerving.
