Fantastic private tour of Colosseum, and we also toured Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

Cinque Terre Day Trip from Milan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic day.
Guide brilliant. He not only knew his history but gave us a botanical insight of plants in Italy and how many are used in food preparation.
Our guide made sure we had the best viewing seat on the boat, so we could take the most stunning photos of Cinque Terre
Excellent coaches - clean and comfortable
Not to be missed

Terrific day
What a fantastic city.
The Arena was just amazing- used for concerts. We had the pleasure of hearing the orchestra "tuning up" for the night Opera.

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a wonderful day visiting an amazing historic city.
It was disappointing to have such a boring guide. We decided to leave the tour and explore ourselves and then catchup with the group later in the day.
The tour wasn't entirely English tour but had Japanese and Spanish visitors on the tour. The whole day was taken with interpreting from English to Spanish to overly lengthy Japanese . We believed we had paid for an English tour not multilingual. It becomes very frustrating. The guide interpreting Japanese for the 15 guests onboard the bus just kept talking for long periods of time. It appeared the Guide was studying Japanese and was getting the most out of using his acquired skills to impress- very very boring and unnecessary. This spoilt a pleasant day.
Both Guides were very rude in respect of pushing in in front of guests and having personal conversations between themselves and not interacting with their paying customers. It felt like it was imposition for them to have you on the trip.
One guide was not presented well with dirty trousers and un pressed shirt.
A city to visit but hopefully you get better guide.

Our guide came to hotel early. Met us and took us across the road to our awaiting water taxi.
A porter was waiting for us when we arrived at the airport and carried our luggage to inside the terminal. Fantastic service. Takes all the worry out of transfers.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Dinner great, river cruise terrific but very disappointed with the Moulin Rouge Show. Crowded venue, terrible seat up the back where we couldn't see the show. My husband had to stand for the whole show as he didn't have a seat. Very rude security and workers in the venue also, who are only concerned about numbers packed into venue. The show itself very, very disappointing. Have seen much more polished performances onboard cruise ships. Would not recommend
