Private Horse Drawn Sleigh Ride from Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour. The driver took us to several lookouts where we could take pictures on our way to the sleigh ride and then we visited some towns on our way back. It was a wonderful car ride both out and back. The sleigh ride was very special. We had hoped for snow and we almost had it but it ended up being rain and sleet. The countryside was gorgeous and the horses were special.

Salzburg Christmas Eve Tour to the Silent Night Chapel

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a great tour to the Silent Night chapel. The 4 buses that left were all pretty crowded. Thankfully, we had the best tour guide, Naomi Mogil , and she spoke in both English and German. She gave us all the interesting facts as we headed to Oberndorf. There were a lot of people at the service but not as many as I had thought. The market shops were nice but there were only a few of them. The view from the river was spectacular and we had a wonderful sunset. The service was done mostly in German and Silent Night was only sung in German (we heard the last verse was supposed to be in English). We felt the visit was worth it and I'd recommend it.

Bavarian Mountains and Obersalzberg Tour from Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

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

My Review

The sights on this tour are amazing; however, combining our bus with other tours that had different itineraries (ie. Salt Mine) meant that we had to spend time dropping them off and picking them up. This cost us nearly 45 minutes of time we could have been enjoying the sights. Our guide was OK but he really didn't provide much 'guiding'. We really like the walk around Echo Lake in Konigsee. What a beautiful area this is but we just would've like some more time. The visit to Berchtesgaden Village was very nice as well but again our time was short. I would recommend this tour during high season when you are not combining it with other tours.

Amsterdam Airport Private Departure Transfer

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Driver arrived on time in a van with more than enough room for us and our luggage. She had no concerns that we had a couple extra bags. This is more expensive than a taxi but for us worth the comfort knowing you'd have reliable transportation and could pay ahead with a credit card.

Alkmaar Cheese Market and Dutch Windmills Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We really enjoyed our trip to the cheese market, windmills, and cheese factory although the bus was a bit crowded. As others have pointed out, the cheese market area is quite crowded and it's mostly stage as a tourist attraction, but it is interesting to see. We really enjoyed walking around the town and just wish we would've had more time to do that. The windmill tour was very interesting and the restored windmills in very good condition. We had already seen a cheese making demonstration and had purchased cheese elsewhere so this wasn't as big a draw for us but it was still enjoyable. There are a number of buses leaving in the morning from the same area so it can be busy and get crowded. I encourage you to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your tour. We would recommend this.

Highlights of Amsterdam Sightseeing Cruise

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There was some confusion for us on where to get the tickets and then which boat to take plus as it turned out we only received 1 ticket at the ticket counter when we had purchased two. We didn't realize this until we made our way to the boat but the captain welcomed us none the less without requiring us to go back. This was a great overview on a nice boat and I'd encourage anyone to do this and book ahead with Viator.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Driver was on time and took us to our hotel very quickly. Although cabs were available, it gave us comfort to know we'd have reliable transportation which we could pre-pay for. I would use them again. Driver was nice to point out all the sites and provide recommendations for us as well.

Amsterdam Canals Pizza Cruise

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a very relaxing tour with good commentary so at the end of a long day that was nice. There were very liberal with the drinks and always asked if you wanted additional. The one major disappointment for us was that it was not Domino's pizza as advertised. For those of you who love Domino's and don't get it often, I think you can understand this. Like I said, it was a nice relaxing tour with a good ending of Ben and Jerry's.
