Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Day Trip from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a great tour for us since we only had 2 days in Naples. We did feel a bit rushed at Pompeii since we tend to take a lot of photos. Instead of stopping at the Coral factory/museum for 20-30 mins, maybe it would be better to add that time to the Pompeii tour. Lunch was simple and good at a local restaurant where all the tour groups were being taken to. Amalfi was very nice; however, there was a huge landslide and the coastal road was not accessible. Our driver did his best to make the most of our time and took us to Amalfi using another route. We did stop a few times to take pictures which we were pleased about. Overall, this is a great tour and I would recommend it!

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Pictures inside of either of these castles are not allowed (even without flash), so remember to take plenty of pics from the outside! Our tour started with the Linderhof castle first, and lucky for us, it was lightly snowing. This is one of the smaller castles, although it took about 9 years to finish it. Our tour guide was great and gave us many insights into King Ludwig II and his life/personality. We didn't get to see any of the rooms on the ground floor, but we saw everything on the 2nd floor...very cool! The tour briefly stopped at a small nearby town, Oberammergau, where they are known for their wood carvings. Only 1-2 shops were open since it was a Sunday. From their, we proceeded to Neuschwanstein castle. Again, we didn't have the best weather since it was lightly snowly and quite foggy, so we couldn't see the beautiful picturesque views of the castle from the bridge (we chose not to walk the extra 20 min x 2 to get to the bridge due to the weather). We decided to walk up the hill very fast (which left me breathless) so that we could have lunch at the restaurant before getting to the castle. The service was a little slow, and we actually ended up spending too much time at the restaurant. We then rushed up the hill for another 5 mins to start our official tour of the castle (they are very strict about entry times). I wish we had more time outside of the castle to take pics. The tour was only 30 mins, and I was a little disappointed because it felt like we didn't get to see a lot of the rooms (we saw more at Linderhof, and it was much smaller). Once the tour was over, we only had a few mins to spare in the gift shop since we had to walk back down the hill to our bus which left very promptly. The ride back to Munich was relaxing.

I would recommend this tour, and I think I would like to go back on a sunny day to take beautiful pics!

Munich City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had 1 day in Munich, so this was a wonderful way to get to see the highlights of the city. We toured the Nymphenburg Castle, BMW Museum, and Olympic Park which are all stops on the Grand Tour route. We finished the Hop-on Hop-off tour back at the main train station, and we walked into the pedestrian area of the city for dinner, walking after dinner, then making our way into one of the popular beer halls. Great experience and would recommend to everyone!

Seine River Cruise: Bateaux Parisiens Sightseeing Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We took one of the last river cruises of the evening that left around 9:30-10 pm. The sights of Paris were wonderful during sunset as well as night time with all of the lights. We got to see the Eiffel Tower light up and sparkle during the last 10 mins of the cruise. I would recommend this to everyone!

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I would highly recommend this tour because you don't have to wait in any of the long lines to purchase tickets and to go up the elevator. Our tour included the ticket to the 3rd floor (top floor) of the Eiffel Tower which was great because we didn't have to wait in any lines on the 2nd floor to purchase them. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent history lesson of the Tower as well Paris and the surrounding buildings, King Louis XIV-XVI, etc. The group tour was approximately 2 hours, and then we had free time on the 3rd floor. So all in all, we ended up being in the tower itself for almost 4 hours! Well worth the views of Paris.

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We purchased the 2 day option and were able to get on 3 out of the 4 bus loops. This is an excellent way to see Paris' main attractions, and I would highly recommend it. The only downside is that the last buses leave around 6-6:30 pm and they also get very crowded! If you end up getting stuck at one of the sights because the bus tour ends somewhat early, you can definitely find a metro line that will take you back to your hotel area. Don't forget to pick up the Bus Tour Map as well as the Paris City Metro/Bus Route Map from the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus when you board. The Metro map came in handy as we stayed in the 13th District (Place d'Italie) and the nearest Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour bus stop was about a 20-25 min walk from our hotel...not too bad but also not that close. You can get to anywhere within Paris via the Metro so don't worry if the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour ends for the day and you're nowhere near your hotel, you won't get stranded!

Switzerland Mountains, Cheese and Chocolates Tour from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We bought 65 Swiss Franks worth of chocolate at the Lindt factory store! The prices were definitely a bargain compared to Zurich or airport prices; great as gifts too. The scenic route to Appenzel where the cheese factory was located was a plus. We also bought Appenzeller cheeses from the cheese factory in Appenzel, so deliciously good and you get to sample many varieties. We lucked out with the Mountain because the clouds and fog came in but it was still very relaxing. The mountain goats at the top provided great entertainment. I would recommend this tour for those who want to buy chocolate and cheese and see the cheese being made.

Mount Pilatus Summer Day Trip from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a perfect day trip combined with bus, gondola, cogwheel train, and a ferry ride. Definitely worth your time and money. Spectacular views from Mount Pilatus and on the way up to it. Lucerne is gorgeous, but the ferry ride makes it even better! Would highly recommend this trip to everyone!!!
