Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great day. Kirsty, our guide, was informative and had a great sense of humor. She gave us a good background of the history of Versailles whil we pedaled through the grounds. We had a couple hours to tour the palace on our own. It was packed with people...too crowded to spend a whole lo of time. Glad we had the background info from Kirsty. Highly reccomend.

Good tour. You defintely need to have a guide. Withour kowing the history behind the catacombs, you'd just be looking at bones.

Private Tour: Zhujiajiao Water Town from Shanghai

Shanghai, China

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Our tour guide Annie was great!

There really wasn't much to see in the town, it was interesting, but very commercialized. Lots of souvenir vendors it you like that kind of thing. We were through the town and had lunch in a couple hours. By no means a full day tour, so when we got back to Shanghai, Annie took us into the Old Town district and a tour of the Yuyaun Garden. Great place and Annie knew it well. She made a 1 star tour into a 5 star and we got the full day we had paid for. Only givng this a 2 star rating, because that's how we felt about Zhujiajiao, but would highly reccomend Annie for tours in Shanghai.

Round-trip Transfer by High-Speed Maglev Train: Shanghai Pudong International Airport

Shanghai, China

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This was really a pain havng to haul our luggage on and off the train. Jennifer, the girl that picked us up was no help at all and she kept runining ahead of us. Almost lost her a couple times.

It was a 20 minute ride from the train station to our hotel at Tomorrow Square. As the car ride to the airport is only an hour, we didn't save any time taking the train. We opted to skip the train on our return, which was far easier. The guy that picked us up for the retrun trip was very nice and helpful.

Great Wall of China Small Group Day Trip from Beijing

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of the highlights of our trip. Dennis the guide was very good. Be ready for a hike on this one. It took about 30 minutes of stair climibing to get up to the wall. Views were spectacular. This secton of the wall is in great shape. We walked through 5 of the towers. Took the toboggan back to the bottom. Great fun and highly recommended. Watch the vendors, they'll ask 150 and sell for 20. You need to negotiate and be ready to walk away. They'll chase you down to make the sale.

Private Custom Tour: Beijing in One Day

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We started at Tiananmen Square and then went through the Forbidden City. Our guide, Christina was very good. From there, we caught a cab and went out to the Summer Palace. On the way back we stopped at the Olympic Site to see the Birdcage and the swin cube. Went throught the Silk Museum, which was interesting, but ended with a sales pitch hawking all the silf goods. We did buy some nice silk products, prices were reasonable.

This was a really good way to get to know the city and learn a lot about the history of China.

On time, polite. Good sized vehicle easily accomodated all our luggage. I wish I had thought about booking for my inbound trip. Far better and cost competitive with the Taxis

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Warwick Castle was interesting although a bit commercialized. It's owned by an entertainment company. Shakespere's birthplace (alleged) was a bore. Single file line you couldn't get out of moving very slowly. There wasn't 10 minutes worth of anything of interest and it took us 45 minutes to get through. Would reccomend just enjoying the town and lunch if you encouter a line outside. Oxford was quite interesting particulary if you're a Lewis Carroll fan.
