London Airport Private Departure Transfer

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The driver was early and we got to the airport well ahead of our flight. I am glad I rang them to confirm pick up time as they had us being collected for an early morning flight when we were going on an evening flight.

Medieval Banquet and Merriment by Torchlight in London

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review

It was a bit long and drawn out and the entertainment was repetitive. The food was average. We didn't bother waiting for dessert.

Oxford, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review

We had a tour guide who didn't seem to enjoy his job and I felt like he thought we were all a bit of a nuisance. Warwick castle was disappointing as they had very little happening and half an hour there would have been more than enough. Stratford was interesting if you are a Shakespeare fan. Oxford was OK but I wouldn't have cared if I had missed it. I had expected to see cute little thatched cottages everywhere and really picturesque scenery but it was nothing to write home about. All in all not that interesting.

Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Dover

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We had a really informative funny tour guide that made the trip even more interesting and the time on the bus sped by. Leeds castle was the most picturesque castle that we saw in London, even though they were in the midst of taking down Christmas decorations. Our guide recommended a nice cafe for lunch and we got quick service and great food. Cantrebury Cathedral was simply spectacular and well worth a visit, even though I am not really into churches. The White Cliffs of Dover which I have read about in various books over the years did not disappoint as it was a wild windy day.

London Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We had a really lovely informative tour guide who gave us lots of interesting information. It was good to get to the Tower of London before the crowds and it was the highlight of our sightseeing in London. I had thought we were doing a cruise up and down the Thames but it was more a boat ride from the Tower to the next site. St Paul's was a must see. I am not a church fanatic but the architecture and history were fantastic. We opted out of the afternoon tea as they weren't doing it at Harrods anymore.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We went to Windsor castle first and had time for lunch in the little village there. It would have been good to have had time to explore the village. Our tour ended up picking up a lady who had got left behind by the other tour company so I thought that was really good of them to take her with us.Stonehenge was great even though it was pouring rain and windy and cold. The visitor center was a nice haven to escape the elements. We liked how you could watch the History of the place and the different seasons.Bath was good but we didn't get to see much other than the baths. Maybe that is all there is to see in Bath? It was a long day and we saw a lot so I guess if your time is limited this is a good tour to do.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Cabaret Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

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

My Review

It was a set menu with no choices which didn't sit well with my fussy 16 year old who ate nothing! I was disappointed with the lack of view both in the restaurant and the platform. If this was your first visit to the Eiffel tower you would have been very disappointed. There were huge line ups for the cruise and our driver managed to get us on another boat from another location with not the crowds so we were very lucky he could organise that so quickly. The Lido was a debacle to say the least. We got dropped of at 10.45pm for the 11pm show. The line up was enormous and by 11.30pm only half the people had got in to the venue. People kept jumping the line and there was no crowd control. By this stage I had a very grumpy 16 year old who was complaining quite vocally. I kind of agreed with her so made the decision to leave and go back to our hotel. Have no idea what the Lido was like. In the circumstances it was an expensive night which in our case was not worth the money. I haven't given it a one star rating as I can't blame the tour company for the Lido lack of management and control of their venue.

Best of Versailles Day Trip from Paris: Skip-the-Line Palace of Versailles Tour, Grand Canal Lunch and the Grand Trianon

Paris, France

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

My Review

We were squashed like sardines into the palace and it was a most uncomfortable experience and we were glad to get out of there. The Parisians have no idea how to mange crowds. This was in stark contrast to our castle tours in Germany where you had a set time and only a certain number were allowed in at that time. Our lunch was a set menu with 2 choices for the main and everyone enjoyed it. The tour continued on with the crowds, and we had seen enough by then. I felt sorry for the lady on our tour who wanted to go to the toilet and had to wait and wait due to the line up and lack of facilities. We enjoyed the Queen's hamlet the best as there was much more space to explore and look at things at your leisure. I wouldn't do it again.

Paris Private Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle (CDG) or Orly (ORY)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

They were waiting at the terminal with our name clearly displayed when we walked out of the terminal. This is the easiest transfer I have ever had. I only wish all companies were like this one.
