Brussels Food and City Highlights Walking Tour

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was much more than a food tour. We learned so much about the history of famous monuments and buildings, plus saw neighborhoods and sights we never would have seen on our own. We even went up to a hidden panoramic viewpoint right in the middle of the city. On the tour we ate Brussels' famous mussels with frites and beer, chocolate truffles with champagne inside, and a Belgian waffle and coffee. Everything was delicious, our guide was great and we learned a lot about Brussels' food, history and culture.

Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The Brussels chocolate tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We sampled a variety of chocolates, including truffles and pralines. We even learned some of the science and history of chocolate and why different kinds taste better than others. As the tour progressed, each tasting got better until the absolute best: Marcolini! It was some of the best chocolate I've ever had in my life. The workshop was also really fun and the chocolatier we worked with was great at leading the class. Our chocolates turned out really tasty! I would highly recommend this tour to any visitor to Brussels - your trip wouldn't be complete without trying some of the best and most famous chocolate in the world.

Small-Group Porto Food and Wine Tour

Porto, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was one of the best tours I've ever taken. We learned SO much about Porto's history, culture and food and our guide Virginia was amazing. It was a very small group (just two of us) so we had a very personalized experience and were able to ask lots of questions. On the tour we tried the best Portuguese egg tarts I've ever had, port wine with cheese, a bifana (spicy pork) sandwich, codfish with an anise liquor, ginja berry liquor in a chocolate cup, and the famous francesinha sandwich. We liked the stops so much that we went back to a few of them two more times! I highly recommend this tour - it was a great introduction to Portuguese food and culture.

Luxury Long-Distance Train Journey: New York to London

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Absolutely fabulous, definitely a "must-do" for anyone traveling from New York to London! After years of suffering through squished long-distance flights I was ready to try something different, and this was certainly a unique experience. I enjoyed being able to walk around, drink in hand, feeling like I was in an old-timey movie for the whole 4+ day journey. That atmosphere was enhanced by the lack of modern distractions, such as cell phones and laptops. Just make sure to bring a long book and hope that you get along well with your fellow passengers!

Little Italy and North Beach Walking Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
As a San Franciscan, I found this tour incredibly interesting. I don't know too much about North Beach, and our guide was super informative and shared a lot about the neighborhood's interesting history. I had also never been to any of the food stops, so it was a great chance to try new places. Plus, they were all really good, and I especially loved the pizza! Highly recommended tour for locals and visitors alike!

California Academy of Sciences NightLife

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
If you're in San Francisco on a Thursday evening, don't miss Nightlife! Not only are there activities and drinks, it's also a totally different and unique experience to be in the museum after dark. We went during the holiday season and got to make reindeer antlers (there were also several other crafts), tried a bunch of Ghirardelli chocolate, saw real reindeer, watched the jellyfish float around their aquariums, and looked through a telescope on the roof. Whether you live in SF and want to try something new or you're just visiting, I'd highly recommend Nightlife!

de Young Museum Admission

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The visit to the de Young Museum was thoroughly enjoyable. The view from the museum tower nine floors above showcased the lovely grounds below and gave a spectacular view of the San Francisco surroundings.

The exhibits were refreshing with the exquisite The Girl with the Pearl Earrings amongst the works of the various Dutch artists. The room with the whimsical pieces was a favorite with a mixture of silver raindrops poised from the ceiling, Chiluly flowers and bowls, and pieces of varied textures and colors.

Best of Berkeley Gourmet Food Tour

Berkeley, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This Berkeley food tour was outstanding! We visited nine locations around the Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood, and the samples at each spot were tasty and quite varied. The group was small, so it was easy to hear our guide (Carrie, who was fantastic!) as she explained the story behind the restaurants, shops, and dishes. Each person we met at the stops was very passionate about what they do, and shared very interesting stories. I feel like a learned a lot on this tour, and as a San Francisco resident I look forward to returning to many of these places that I never would have found on my own.

Napa Valley Wine Train

Napa, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We went with the dinner option on the Wine Train and it was fabulous! We started with appetizers and a glass of wine on the way up (which were delicious) and enjoyed great views of vineyards as the train slowly passed by. The train itself is beautiful and old with lots of great character. It was interesting hearing about the history of it. After the first course, our salads, then entrees, dessert and coffee came, along with more wine. Every part was really good, and the atmosphere was unique. Loved it and I look forward to trying the lunch version as well!

Small-Group Molokini Snorkel and Green Sea Turtle Adventure from Maui

Maui, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was AMAZING! I had never gone snorkeling before, but Sean and Kelly were outstanding tour guides who made us feel comfortable and safe the whole time, and I successfully snorkeled without any problems. We saw giant turtles, a ton of whales, and lots of fish. They provide breakfast, lunch, plus all kinds of gear, including wetsuits and flippers. We made four stops for snorkeling, and our favorite was the back side of the Molokini Crater--it was teeming with fish and Kelly was with us pointing out all the different wildlife. Highly recommended!!!

Maui Hana Coast Day Trip

Maui, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was excellent. The driver was extremely knowledgeable and we learned SO much about the history and culture of Maui. We made several stops for photos, plus extended stops at a black sand beach, the Seven Sacred Pools, a delicious organic farmers market lunch in Hana, and a wine tasting on the way back. It was great being able to sit back and enjoy the amazing views instead of having to drive. We also drove the "Back Road to Hana," which was a highlight for me, and a road that not many other people drive on their own. Highly recommended!!!
