Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great experience. Island is so very different to Hong Kong yet right next door! Our guide lived on Lantau and he had great pride in his community. Everyone was picked up at their hotels in Kowloon and put on one bus. You cross over to the Hong Kong side and take a nice short ferry ride over to Lantau. Once you arrive you get on a smaller bus. The highlight of the trip was stopping at the small fishing village to see and understand how people still live a simple life like their ancestors. The trip to the Big Buddha was outstanding. The Chinese government has made a beautiful shrine and grounds for locals and visitors alike. The vegetarian meal was fresh and acceptable. Those who didn't want to eat it were directed to a couple of fast foods available - Subway and Starbucks. The grand finale on the cable car back to Hong Kong had an amazing view. Even though we had a foggy overcast day it was an experience! You really see how big the new airport is and get a great view descending into Hong Kong. The whole trip was not exerting and was very relaxing and informative. NOTE: there is NO shopping unless you want to buy dried fish!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

it was really nice to get a brief overview of the city and to get to go to pearl harbor. We have been to Waikiki about 10 times and pearl harbor 2 twice over the years but it was nice to still learn new things about the area. Our guide waynette was Amazing...she embodied all of what is great about the Hawaiian Spirit! It was really a fun, great way to see everything from the top of an open air bus.. breathing that fresh sea air is a priceless way to experience the town!!!!

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The home is amazingly beautiful! This is a self guided audio tour. I thought it was very worthwhile to Go. Im glad we had the tickets in advance because there was a line that we got to skip! I did like La Pedrera tour better but it was probably due to the personal touch of having a guide .Im really glad I went to both.

My Review

i think it was really great to experience this place at night. Easy access by metro subway...stop is right across the street! Our guide was excellent, spoke near perfect English. The apartment building is unbelievable even by todays standards on top of being designed over 70 years ago.. I'm so glad we went to this.The tour finished with champagne and snacks. Nice!!

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

this half day was a wonderful overview to the" best highlights" of the city. I'm glad we did it the first day we arrived because then we were able to go back to the places we wanted to explore more. It is a combo bus and walking tour. The half day tour was very easy and afterward we still had lots of energy to explore city some more on our own. Tip-- make sure you leave enough time to arrive at the tour company meeting place ..it was a little off the beaten path!

Skip the Line: Alhambra and Generalife Gardens Half-Day Tour

Granada, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We stayed a week in a country house in Ronda with friends. We went on driving day trips to Seville, Granada and Cordoba. I think the Alhambra was the more important, most interesting place we went. Don't miss it! Words can not describe its grandeur! Our guide was wonderful. it was a large group but with the headsets it was easy to follow him. Leave enough time for exploring on your own prior to the start or the end of your tour .

Skip the Line: Prado Museum Express Ticket and Tour in Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

OK-- this tour is for someone who wants to say "I've been to the Prado" but not spend in depth time there. We knew this in advance so i wasn't surprised. My husband was ready to leave once the tour was done. I was able to convince him to stay another hour and explore on our own. We only saw the "tip of the iceberg". Should have planned to spend more time on our own there.PS there was NO line in September to "skip[" and we could have bought tickets and did it on our own for much less. Im sure thats NOT the case in the busy summer months!

Madrid City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Love the hop on hop off bus everywhere!!!!We always take it the first day because It gives you an amazing overview of the city and where everything is! The audio part isn't so informative but that's not why we use it! We ended up using it almost as a taxi once we did the full route tour ( there are two routes in Madrid) to retrace back to wherever we wanted to go. TIP: Stops are not super clearly marked...you really need to use eagle eyes to find the" hop on hop off Madrid City tours logo" to find the stops exact locations!
