This tour is so worth the money! To see the city by boat and have a great meal and drinks! It is the way to see the city. Gorgeous at night, excellent food, flowing drinks, friendly staff, white table clothes. I would for sure do it again and recommend it. It is a must!

Rome Departure Shuttle Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Having someone pick you up rather than dealing with public transportation is nice and the airport is a ways out so who knows long it would take to actually get to the airport via public transportation. Four stars because again our driver did not speak English or understand English (this was a common experience throughout our 6 country travels with shuttles) and was on his cell phone during the drive which can be unnerving when driving in Rome. He was on time and got us to the airport. P.S. I would recommend the private driver through Viator. They typically speak English and you spend way less time in the car. We were lucky and were the only ones in this (Rome) shuttle but usually you have at least two or three other parties which adds an hour or two to your trip getting to or from the airport.

My Review

Our guide was Interesting, knowledgeable and organized. My only complaint is it was hard to hear the tour guide at times because his microphone was this head piece so when the guy was walking and talking the microphone kept moving away from his mouth. I recommend the company upgrades so everyone in the tour can hear properly at all times. P.S the cafe where you meet for this tour has bathrooms and great food. The wait staff is really friendly.

My Review

If you are looking just get right to your hotel and not drive in a shuttle for two hours after a long flight do a private driver its worth the money. Our driver was either new or just rude. He did not speak English or even try to and didn't offer or help with luggage.

Vienna's Schonbrunn Zoo and Giant Ferris Wheel

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Clean Zoo, tons of exotic animals and is surrounded by a fabulous park. I believe this is the 4th best Zoo in the world. I would recommend bringing a packed lunch for the park outside of the Zoo. It is gorgeous. It is also very close to this wonderful palace we stumbled upon within the park area.

Concert was nice, the conductor was very engaging with the audience and it is very close to center of the city. You also get a free cd. Programs are 5 euro extra at the concert. This concert hall and concert is also in the book 1000 Things to See Before You Die.

Prague in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our tour was a bit choppy. There was a marathon going on that day so we our tour kept having to get rerouted. The reason I give it three stars is because we got stuck with a Spanish speaking group and our tour guide kept speaking Spanish more than English. Also several people in our group wandered off so she had to go look for them while we waited thus delaying the tour even more. She seemed frazzled and unorganized not giving the group much direction. The city itself ROCKS!

Prague Airport Private Arrival Transfer

My Rating

My Review

Our guide was friendly, on time, gave us a history of the city. Went out of his way to show us the Prague Castle. Private Arrival Transfer is the way to go. The airport is a ways out so there is no choice but to hire a driver. It is also super affordable.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Its great to have someone pick you up because let me tell you French people do not like Americans and the French subways may be easy to navigate but are crowded and people have no problem pushing you out of the way. However shuttles can be a hassle depending on who you get for company in the shuttle. Our driver was late and we had 2 other French women who gave the driver the wrong airport information. About half way to the airport they informed the driver that they were infact suppose to go to the other airport. (when you make reservation you have to type in in the airport, the driver also confirms this once he/she picks you up) Then the women blamed it on the shuttle company demanded the driver pull over and they refused to get out of the shuttle until the company refunded them. It wasn't drivers fault and he handled it with professionalism but taking a shuttle with strangers always presents a wild card. We waited on the side of the road for 15 minutes until finally these stupid French women got out and the driver was nice enough had arranged them another car. I give it four stars the fact you don't have to take public transit and it is a haul to the airport trust me and for the drivers professionalism, apologizing for being late (half hour) and still getting us there 2 hours before our flight left. P.S. Shuttles require you to be ready four hours in advance. Private drivers only require you to be ready 2.5 hours in advance. I have done both private driver is the way to go and they speak english.

Paris Pass

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Paris pass rocks. Its easy to find at the Hard Rock Cafe and it is so worth the money. Try the wine tasting but make sure you make your reservation online before you go. We did not but they were nice enough to squeeze us in. The canal cruise is pretty cool as well. These city passes are definately the way to go if you want to see all the major sights. You skip all the lines which saves you time and for the transporation alone it saves you money! My only complaint is that it didn't have Eiffel tower.

My Review

It was interesting to hear about the history of the city by walking and bus. Our guide was kind of rushed, you could tell he wanted to get on to something else. When I asked questions he kind of blew me off like listen to the tape. There is some tape you listen to and also speaking. The chocolate demonstration was lame, I was expecting a factory tour or taksing and they show you how to make chocolate squares and shapes and at what temp to cool chocolate too. It was wierd they really should call it How to Make you own homemade chocolate. When we asked for facts like how much chocolate does belguim export or how much does the average chocolate cost the guy had no clue. This tour was average.
