This was a very disappointing tour as we specifically chose this one for it's combination of the great wall and the ming tombs. Had it not been for wanting to go to the ming tombs, we would have gone to a different less crowded part of the great wall. Unfortunately the guide rushed us through the site and we didn't actually get to see the tombs, and when we protested he said his company doesn't show that as the contents are fake.
When we go to the wall, the guide didn't come with us but just gave us a short time limit to climb as fast as we could and practically run back down to make his artificial deadline so he could take us to a subpar lunch, shopping, and then rush us back 2 hours before the tour was scheduled to end. I would NOT recommend this combo tour to anyone!
This was an amazing day tour, the kayaking was fun, and getting to see the grizzlies was great. We were also lucky to get to see another 12+ grizzlies as we were flying back at the end of the night including babies. We had two fun and informational tour guides. This is a tour that I would highly recommend to others.
My Recommendation Tip
Viator's 5 day cruise down the Nile from luxor was amazing. Everything from the huge rooms, excellent buffet, evening entertainment, and of course the sites themselves. The guide we got assigned, Adel, was extremely knowledgable and made the tour that much more interesting. Highly recommend this tour! We went late January 2012 and they managed to help me with a surprise birthday cake for my husband.
The Alhambra was great but the tour itself was lacking in information. Also the group size was so large that it wasn't personable, ie, it felt very overpriced for the service we received. Due to the large size of the group the tour guide was busy trying to herd the group and deal with their lost tickets, etc.
Great day trip! The guide had excellent English and had lots of information for our small group of 8. Vic was cute but not much there, the town of Queralbs was over the top cute. Having the mayor open the church for us was a fantastic treat!
