Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We were originally booked for a less expensive tour that included a tour of the bunker under the tower and other perks. This one was $100 more but less service. We did like the location of the office and liked using the facilities before and after our visit to the tower. The young man who gave us our information talk was wonderful!!! Great information. We loved our tower visit. They told us to go right to the line to the 3rd level, so we spent about an hour in line. Later when we came down there wasn't a line. We wished we had waited. Overall, we loved our visit and were thrilled that we could share this experience with our grandchildren. The original lines around the tower were not that long this time of year. So we probably could have gone with out the reservations. It was very expensive to do it this way, but we got it done our first evening in Paris.

My Review

Daniel did an excellent job of leading this tour. He was enthusiastic and had great information for us. In Oxford, he was flexible to let us go on our own to see Christ Church and Harry Potter locations. We had visited a year ago and wanted to share that part with our grandchildren. Stratford was wonderful. too short. The birthplace home is really well set up to enjoy! However, I didn't have time for a wonderful Scone and cream tea. The actress was wonderful in the gardens. My husband and granddaughter ran to the church to see the grave of Shakespeare. Warwick Castle has really changed and we would recommend that you choose a different castle. It took so long to walk a section of the wall that we didn't get to do much else. If your kids are interested in the Merlin event, get tickets right away. We didn't realize it was a timed event and missed out since we had to leave so early. Overall, this was a quick intro tour of three places we have enjoyed in the past and wanted to share with the grandkids without renting a car. It's a good way to get a taste of these places. C

My Review

This is a fabulous tour! Carmen was amazing switching easily from Spanish to Very fluent English. We took a picnic lunch and ate bread, cheese and ham and sat in the shadows of the Roman Aquaduct. It was such a successful day. We even saw several Storks flying and nesting as they migrate north from Africa. Great opportunity.

My Review

We would give a 5 stars rating for the live tour buses rather than this one with just the earphones. We upgraded after we got there and bought the 48 hour tour with a choice of the Heritage and other city tours with live guides. They were wonderful!!!! We were also able to buy a fast track ticket from the bus driver (Cash only) for the Edinburgh Castle and avoid the lines

It was a cold drizzly night, but just right for a haunted tour. Our only complaint was the people who used their flash cameras to take photos and it spoiled the atmosphere.

Circle Line: Complete Manhattan Island Cruise

New York City, New York

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

My Review
We enjoyed our cruise, but the guy who talked was bored with his own script. It was so canned. He didn't come across as interested in what he was telling us. Also, many people in line had coupons from the paper that allowed them to get the same cruise for less.
