Chateaux de Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent trip, but a lot for one day. Plenty of time at both locations. My only complaint is that I was refused the audio-visual guide at Fontainebleau even though it was supposedly included.

No commentary at all during the trip. Something, even if bare bones, would be nice.

The tour covers Paris very well but there can be long waits for buses especially away from the main green route.

Good tour, but don't confuse this with the other similar service which has more routes and greater frequency.

Whistler Small Group Day Trip from Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour, due in no small part to our guide Brent. He was flexible where possible, helpful and a fount of information. The weather was fortunately in our favour despite fogs in Vancouver. Whistler itself was quiet, with no lifts operating and the foliage was in full autumn mode.

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour. Great driver full of information and anecdotes and Boeing is eye opening. However the tour itself is very rushed and superficial.

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

My Review

Had to call to check where the driver was. Told that he was "on his way" and that I was the last pickup. However when he arrived there was only one other couple. A bit of honesty would be nice.

Victoria by Seaplane and Ferry from Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Absolutely great. The seaplane experience was very good, with professional staff and an interesting low level flight to Victoria. The ferry ride back was a chance to relax, with the bus driver being particularly helpful

Vancouver Trolley Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I've done this tour before but I have to say that it has improved out of sight. The drivers were friendly and helpful and a fair bit of humor was thrown in. I'd particularly mention Ross, who had a very broad knowledge, not only of Vancouver but how it related to other countries and events.

Las Vegas Hop-on Hop-off Double-Decker Bus Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Hop on/hop off is the best way to see a place when you are there for the first time and/or have limited time. No exception here and the live commentary (recently added) was great with some very good guides (especially Debbie).

Chicago Airport Roundtrip Transfer

Chicago, Illinois

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Poorly organized would be my short description. Pickup was not at the door indicated on the voucher and the driver then had to go to another terminal to get tickets for those who hadn't paid or to get return tickets.

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent tour with an excellent guide (Alex). This is a good way of being certain to see the Last Supper, but a little more time could have been allowed at La Scala.

Oahu, Hawaii

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Honolulu Power Pass is good value, especially for first time visitors. It covers a good range of activities, although there seemed to be less on offer than 12 months ago.

I'd recommend it.

Montreal City Guided Sightseeing Tour

My Rating

My Review

Quite a comprehensive tour but with the limitations inherent in all activities of this type. I would have preferred more photo stops, but I guess that was not possible in the time allowed.

Mt. Pilatus Winter Day Trip from Lucerne

Lucerne, Switzerland

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Very poor value. There was no guide for the trip and I was the sole traveller, others having given up when they heard it was not guided. I was given cable car tickets and a bus ticket to get me back to Lucerne.

Pilatus itself was OK but restricted due to considerable construction taking place.

Had I known all this, I would have gone to Titlis or Rigi. If you really want Pilatus, take public transport.
