Amsterdam Super Saver: Zaanse Schans Windmills, Delft and The Hague Day Trip

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This full day tour was broken into morning and afternoon- after the morning tour we were bought back to the original place and then had to wait and change buses for the 2nd tour.
Not a good experience at all!! Let me start- our 1st morning tour was on a double decker bus, completely full! I must admit that our guide Danielle was good, but there was a lot of pushing and shoving - everyone wanting to get to the front of the line or even to hear the guide.
The afternoon tour to Delf and The Hague was probably reduced to half the number of people on the morning tour - guide was very good and knowledgable.
Wouldn't recommend this tour at all as the groups were way too large.

Dresden Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A good tour to do - Dresden was a gorgeous place and full of history. Our guide Alex was very knowledgable.
My gripe is the fact that we were supposed to be on a mini van to Dresden, however this was not the case as we were on a large bus. I think they combined 2 tours- one English and one Hebrew.

Jungfraujoch Top of Europe Day Trip from Lucerne

Lucerne, Switzerland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a great day! We had Kit as our guide who was very energetic, funny and knowledgable! When we left Lucerne it was raining and didn't prove too promising however by the time we got up to the mountain the weather had cleared up and we were able to take some great photos. Kit was always there to take the best photos for us at the best views.
A wonderful experience!

Excellent! Mike created a very 'rock' atmosphere with music playing and gave us a great insight into London Rock. Would certainly recommend this tour and wish we had the time to do the full day tour.

Fátima and the Sanctuary Basilica Half Day Tour from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Worth doing as a tour - The tour guide was very multi-lingual and spoke in about 4 different languages. Only problem with this tour was the inconsideration of a few people on the trip who didn't meet on time thus having to wait for some time. I think we should have just left them behind! Maybe the tour guide should have relayed this message from the onset!

Madrid Super Saver: El Escorial Monastery and Toledo Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

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

My Review

This was a combined morning and afternoon tour with an option of having a "traditional spanish lunch" in between and we chose this option. The morning tour was very poorly managed. The tour guide met us at the tour operator's office in Madrid. She was not very friendly or informative at all. After the morning tour was over she directed us to the restaurant closeby where we were to have our traditional lunch . She didn't explain fully what we had paid for as part of the tour but were also led to believe that everything was included in the price. The waitress at the restaurant couldn't speak English either. Consequently we had a bill at the end of it all. Would not recommend this tour as a 'combined tour' at all.

This tour was a bit strange because there was no guide on the bus to give us a commentary on the way to Cordoba, however once we arrived there the bus driver did hand us over to a guide. The catholic cathedral was beautiful.

The combination of the 3 different tours was well done. The Seine River cruise itself was amazing , however the food quite ordinary. Moulin Rouge started about 11 pm but was spectacular. Next time I would do dinner somewhere close and then onto the show itself!
