Shared Arrival Transfer: Auckland Airport to Hotel

Auckland, New Zealand

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

My Review

This is a public shuttle service rather than a dedicated shuttle service for those arriving at the airport. The service goes all over Auckland rather than to downtown hotels only and was not well organised compared to the similar services I have booked through Viator in London, Paris, Rome, and Singapore were I have always been met at immigration with my name on a board even though I may be sharing the vehicle with other travellers.

London Airport Private Departure Transfer

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The pick up time left only three hours to get to Heathrow and the driver was 20 minutes late and this was a wet Friday night in London. In Januart 2012 when I used the same transfer we were picked up four hours before the flight.

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The day was snowing which made it not as enjoyable as if it had just been cold. There was a lot of standing around listening to the guide, who was very informative, and then a short walk to the next area of the tour.

Not worth the cost as other than going to Firsole most of the attractions are within walking distance of hotels near the train station.

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great tour made more so by the guide Shannon who was a art/history scholar and her knowledge and enthusiasm for Rome and its treasures was outstanding.....watching people queue in the rain while we walked past and into the Vatican museum made the tour so much more valuable.

After 40 hours of traveling it was nice to be met at the airport and driven to our hotel...and for what I consider a very reasonable cost for the convenience.

London Pass

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review

I think these passes are a better idea if travelling independently. Access to attractions are good if you have not taken any other tours...we did and it meant that the passes were only used for one or two entries so it was expensive....the underground tickets were great and the best value and saving. The guide book was informative and helpful with a good map at the back.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent guide having a passion and extraordinary knowledge of her city and the Louvre. In winter not long lines anywhere but it helped to be ushered through. The enormity of the Louvre is something that cannot easily be comprehended. I have visited Paris maybe a dozen times since 1979 and this is the first time I have been into the Louvre generally because I have had time on the wrong day of the week or the staff have been on strike

Paris Pass

Paris, France

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

My Review

Having done tours of Paris this Pass was a little redundant as we only used it for one other museum however the Hop On Hop Off bus was great and allowed weary feet to have a rest but that was after walking Paris for three days

Versailles Small-Group Tour from Paris with Audio Guide

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent...the other couple on our tour did not show so we had the guide to ourselves and this of clourse meant more time exploring the area of Versallies. I have been to the Palace four time previously and I saw more this time than on any other previous occasion.

Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A fabulous introduction to Paris and with the Louvre Tour makes the Paris Pass a little redundant. The line at the Eiffel Tower was probably 500 metres long and this was the secomd week of January so I can only imagine what it is like in Summer....my daughter high fived me because we did not have to line up and the look on the faces of all those that did have to line told me the price of the tour was money well spent
