Wilsons Promontory Day Trip from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent trip made al the better by an enthusiastic and thoroughly professional driver/guide Peter. This far surpassed a 2 day trip I did in Melbourne with another provider who were very poor so use this company for this and other trips if you want VFM.

Tour/Activity

Universal Studios Hollywood, Movie Stars' Homes Tour and City Tour

Los Angeles, California

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

My Review

This tour does not offer value for money in my opinion. It is badly organised, involves lots of waiting around prior to departure, covers little distance for the cost and the tour guide just couldnt wait to get around on the Hollywood tour and get us off the bus. Conversely the afternoon at Universal studios was good but you can do this yourself without a tour company and in any event we did not return to LA City with the tour company as they do not give you long enough in the park to visit/see the brilliant attractions.

Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This is a decent show however Savard lacks excellence in presentation skills that you would generally expect in a Las Vegas based production. I cannot put my finger on it but there was something lacking in this show that would not make this my first choice in future if I had a choice of similar shows to see.

Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I enjoyed this trip but it is a long journey to and from the South rim compared to the optional West rim tour so be warned! It is about 10 hrs return on the coach for 3-4 hours at the Grand Canyon. It is nevertheless worth the ride if you want to see the Grand Canyon which of course is spectacular.(I cannot comment on a comparison with West rim tour as I havent been) I did the optional IMAX presentation which I personally thought was disappointing. Lastly the final stopping point on the coach offered no refreshment facilities whilst the stop straight after lunch did. As it was December and very cold I think there would have been benefit in switching the two stops around so hot drinks could be purchased immediately prior to boarding the coach for the long drive back.
Otherwise a reasonably well organised trip which offered what you would expect but no more.

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This truly was a 5* trip. The guide who was called Jody was incredibly attentive to everyone learning names of everyone who boarded the coach and thereafter being friendly and approachable and on first name terms with all. The visit to the dam and its workings is incredible but it was excelled by Jody's knowledgeable input throughout as she accompanied us on the dam walkabout and explained history etc in favour of leaving us to our own devices as is usually the case on such trips. Further the fine lunch that this tour company arranges at the Boulder City Hotel on behalf of its clients far surpassed what is usually provided on such excursions. Worth every penny and without doubt the company to use for Las Vegas trips in my opinion (via Viator of course who are truly offering great value for money deals)..
