Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

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

My Review
The tour was well organised and run and facilitates access to the tourist area of Pisa. The guide gave an informative tour inside the church. Pisa and the tower are probably among those "see once but not worth returning" places.

Siena and San Gimignano Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The tour was well organised and conducted once one found where to meet near the railway station! The meeting place is not where the buses leave from. Siena is a beautiful town, and the tour gives both a good walk including the cathedral and museum and time to eat lunch and to explore Siena. At San Gimignano, the tour guide is prevented by local "turf wars" with local guides from entering the town, so has to give information while on the bus.

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

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

My Review
The tour itself was well organized and the tour leader tried to show points of interest around Bruges. However she encountered difficulties in trying to keep some members of the tour group from getting lost in the many tourist shops. Bruges is a pretty town spoiled by streets of shops selling touristy products. Be especially careful of the shop opposite where the boat trips commence. It sells display porcelain dolls by placing them in store where they are easily knocked over. They then demand the shopper pays for the damaged dolls.

Nikko National Park Day Trip from Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The tour was great, well paced, and we had a helpful guide. The Japanese lunch was a highlight, and there was time to see the features without any pressure to go to any souvenir shops. Those shops that were at Kegon falls were quite reasonable, obviously aimed at the local tourist. Finding the Hamanastusko Bus Terminal from Daimon Subway station was not immediately obvious, but fortunately I had looked at Google maps to get an idea before leaving home.
