Tulum and Xel-Ha All Inclusive Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

we were picked up from our hotel, and taken to a staging area in downtown Cancun, where are documents were checked and we were divided into groups according to tour destination. After waiting about 15 more minutes as other pickup vans arrived, we finally departed, ironically going back past our hotel on the way to the highway. We could have been picked up nearly 45 minutes later with a different system, but who knows if their logistics deem their system a better way to do it???
We finally arrived at Tulum.....it is much more popular than when I was there years ago.....people everywhere, much less access to the buildings themselves. But the setting is amazing, right by the sea.
Xel-Ha is very nice and well organized. A bit confusing at first, but lots of maps and friendly employees are around to guide you. Changing areas are clean, lockers are large enough, the snorkel equipment was of good quality. The included food was wonderful...food from many parts of Mexico....and free drinks.
Nice to snorkel and see colorful fish, though the water may not be as clear as it used to be.
All in all, recommended!!

Monuments and Memorials Full Day Photo Safari

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Note that this is perhaps more a teaching safari than a tour covering most or all monuments. A novice or low-intermediate photographer will learn a lot. But, ideally, you will have several days AFTER the tour to visit your choice of monuments to get your photos.

Castles Tour from Copenhagen: North Zealand and Hamlet Castle

Copenhagen, Denmark

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A nice day in the Danish countryside. Very green landscapes, with nice towns. The castles were nice, the unquestioned favorite being the last one, Frederiksborg is an absolute gem! The lunch stop at Elsinore was so-so, but you had a couple of other choices, I suppose. The guide and driver were good.

The Stockholm Card

Stockholm, Sweden

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We got this card mainly to see a museum or two, a palace, and to be able to take the bus. At $5 per ride, Scandinavian transit systems are high priced. Like all these cards though, you need to use them or the value is lost. I think we got our money's worth. The pass is easy to get....at the main tourist office across from Central Station. It comes with a very helpful booklet on all the attractions included....hours of operation, how to get there, etc. I recommend the tour of the Opera House, but the Historical Canal Tour did not come up to expectations.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Worth doing for avoiding the lines and for the knowledge of the guide. Wandering through the museum on one's own would definitely result in missed highlights. Standing 20 minutes in direct sun for an initial explanation was a minus however. And I THOUGHT incorrectly perhaps that the tour included a brief visit INSIDE St Peter's but our tour finished at the church entrance.
