Amsterdam Canals Candlelight Cruise

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Good way to see Amsterdams canals at night. The running commentary is very informative, and the unlimited wine is a nice bonus. Just don't expect it to be too romantic.

Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

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

My Review

A lot of driving and not much sightseeing. The heat of the day doesn't help. Visiting the underground museum was interesting, but the spice souk was not really worth it. The gold souk is worth a visit, but would be easier to get a taxi there.

Amsterdam Canal Bus Hop On Hop Off Day Pass and Heineken Experience

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The canal bus is a very good way to see the inner city, and avoid the traffic. Just make sure you start early, it can be a long wait between the boats arriving. The Heineken experience is worth it if you haven't already done a brewery tour, or your a Heineken fan.

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Not really worth it. Your better off visiting the colosseum at your own pace, the tour is rushed. A good part of the commentary revolves around teh guide showing you pictures in books about how the place would have used to look. The Ancient Rome part is to long, especially in the heat of summer. Take plenty of water, sunscreen, and hats.

Tour/Activity

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 the money. Skipping the queue is definatly a bonus, although it dosn't mean you stroll straight in. There is a wait, but it's quicker then going in the non-tour group line. Groups are language based, with the guides speaking the relevant language. Our guide was very witty and informing. Just be aware that you may have to leave your bag and the entrance to the museum. While it is secure, it is a fair walk back to get your belongings at the end of the tour.

Vespa Small Group Day Trip to the Chianti Wine Region

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A fun way to see a part of the Tuscanny countryside. Well worth it. The lunch provided at a winery was great, and the stop at the gelato shop is a welcome break in the heat of the day. The gelato is cheaper and better tasting then the stuff you get in town. Just be aware there is a lot of riding involved, and it can get quite hot.

Florence City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Easy way to see Florence. Covers most of the major sightseeing spots. It is a bit hard to find the bus stops, as the bus stop signs are pretty small. But there are plenty of stops available.

Mount Titlis Day Tour from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

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

My Review

An ok tour, but you spend the majority of time on the bus getting to and from the mountain. The stop in Lucerne is pretty short as well, you have to hurry if you want to see more then the Chapel bridge and the lion monument. The top of the mountain is ok, but not a lot to do. Great scenery though.

Barcelona Hop-on Hop Off Tour: North to South Route

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This was the most difficult booking in our whole trip. We could not use our email voucher like we did in the other countries and had to pay to go to the office and pick up tickets. The directions are confusing as there are a few buildings with the same name. The trip is boring and we got off and went on metro. This was cheaper and easier.

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour. The guide was very knoweledagble about every thing wine in Bordeaux, plus full of interesting bits of other information. Lunch was excellent as well. The tour around the winery was interesting, but must be a fan of red wine for the tasting. White wine not included.

Paris City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Excellent value for money. Best way of seeing some of the major sights of the city at your own pace. The onboard commentary, while brief, adds well to the tour.

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent value for money. Good way of seeing some of the major sights of the city at your own pace. Live onboard commentary from the driver was excellent, good bit of Irish humour. No problems getting a seat on the bus, even during a busy day. Waited no more then 5 minutes for the next bus. Definitely recommended.

Skip the Line: Guinness Storehouse Entrance Ticket

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

If you've never tried Guinness before, this is a good place to start. The self tour covers every part of the whole process of brewing through to marketing. The view from the top of the Storehouse and the free pint of Guinness tops of a good tour.

London in One Day Sightseeing Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very good tour. Covers many of the major attractions of the city. The live onboard commentary is excellent, especially with the dry English humour. Olympic traffic slowed the trip down a bit, but that is beyond the tour companies control.
