Sydney Opera House Guided Walking Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Seeing the Sydney Opera House has been on my bucket list for as long as I have loved Opera. I also had a ticket for that night's performance, La Boheme, so the whole day was OPERA!! The tour was very well done, and I was pleased to see most of the auditoriums as well as learn about the history of the structure. Even if you don't love music or opera, it's still worth a visit to learn about the history and the architecture.

Phillip Island: Penguins, Koalas and Kangaroos Day Tour from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Feeding the Kangaroos was certainly a new experience!!! Getting pretty close to the Koalas at the Conservation Center was spectacular!!!! we got some wonderful pictures. the dinner stop in Cowes was perfect as it's a gorgeous town. and watching the Little Blue Penguins come home for the night was worth the whole day!! We'd seen them before in NZ but at the zoo or in the Antarctic rescue center so seeing them in the wild was an unforgettable experience. The only bad part was that another bus broke down and we had to go back and get some of the passengers and didn't get home til 1am, nothing to be done but it definitely ruined the next day as my niece started her University classes very early and was exhausted. Otherwise 5 out of 5.

Great Ocean Road Small-Group Eco-Tour from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

LONG Day, but totally worth it for the views of the coastline. 12 Apostles was spectacular as was Loch Ard Gorge. Our driver, Allan, had plenty of stories to tell us and was very well informed. Do try to get a seat on the left!!!!! the Koala Cove at Kennet River was amazing, we saw 9 wild Koala's in their natural habitat. The food breaks were quick, but considering the amount of driving we had to do, understandable. Apollo Bay was our lunch stop and it's quite lovely.

Loire Valley Castles Day Trip: Chambord, Cheverny and Chenonceau

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

we had a fabulous time. I did not want to rent a car and do the drive on my own so this was the next best option. I was very satisfied with our tour guides knowledge and the amount of free time we had at each castle was just enough. our lunch was quite tasty as well.

Paris City Tour and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I was a little disappointed in the city tour. I felt that a lot more information could have been given to us as far as history of Paris. There was a LOT of quiet time on the pre recorded audio tour. We did manage to catch a gorgeous day on our Boat ride though. It was my friends first time EVER in Paris and she was very happy with the 1st day in Paris tour she received.
