KD Rhine Pass from Mainz

Mainz, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Rhine River is amazing and was one of the highlights of the trip. My only complaint: if you have a German rail pass, you may not need to purchase this pass - check to see if your rail pass covers the KD Rhine cruises. There are a lot of castles along the Rhine and with this pass, you have the flexibility to get off the boat and spend time in a few of the towns. I got off in Bacharach and St. Goar to visit Rheinfels Castle. Great views the entire way from Mainz to Koblenz.

Four Day Munich to Frankfurt - Romantic Road, Linderhof, Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein

Munich, concludes Frankfurt, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a great way to see a lot of the German countryside without driving. It is an independent tour where you are with one large bus group going to the castles on the first day, another bus to Rothenburg on day 2, another group when departing Rothernburg, and another group when going to Hiedelberg. The only reason I did not give the trip 5 stars was an issue on the first day. When departing Munich, I showed my voucher to the tour guide and mentioned I was staying overnight in Hohenschwangau. However, while the bus was driving, the guide explained there were 4 buses going to the castles, so we were going to start in Hohenschwangau and finish in Linderhof. When I reminded the tour guide that I was supposed to be staying in Hohenschwangau, he was helpful, along with the staff at the Hotel Mueller in Hohenschwangau where we stopped first instead of last on the tour. The result was that all 66 people on this bus were rushed through Linderhof with no time to visit the grounds so that I could be dropped off in Oberamerggau to wait alone and catch the last public bus to Hohenschwangau while the tour bus returned to Munich. Despite this issue, the tour was amazing. The castles are a must-see, and it would be hard to see Neuschwanstein and Linderhof without driving yourself. The Romantic Road bus made multiple stops (which was a pleasant surprise) with 15 minutes in some stops and 45 minutes in others. The bus arrived in Rothenburg around 4:30 PM where a taxi took me to the hotel within the medieval walls of the city. There was plenty of time to spend in Rothenburg before being picked up the next day and getting back on the Romantic Road bus to Frankfurt. All of the hotels were nice. Overall a great trip – just make sure when you start in Munich that the tour guide knows you are not coming back to Munich with the rest of the bus, that the last stop is Hohenschwangau, and that the day 1 tour is not being done in reverse.

Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent day trip from Cancun! The first stop was an amazing underground well where the locals put on a show. The lunch and show at the restaurant were another pleasant surprize. I would have liked a little more time at Chichen Itza or an opportunity to get off the bus in Valladolid, and less time at the "Mayan village" which was just a market. The guide, Rueben, was excellent.

This is an excellent day trip from Cancun! I wish I had a little more time in both places. Tulum was facinating and Xel Ha was a lot of fun. The guid did a great job and assisted me in booking optional activities at Xel Ha.

8-Day Best of Mexico Tour: Mexico City to Cancun

Mexico City, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a great way to see different parts of Mexico. Mexico City was nice, and the ruins of Palenque, Uxmal, and Chichen Itza were amazing. I would have liked more time in the colonial town of Campeche - we arrived at sunset, stayed the night, and left at 8:15 the next morning. The guide, Andre, did a great job. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see more than just the beach resorts of Mexico.

Taxco and Cuernavaca from Mexico City

Mexico City, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent day trip and a wonderful way to see colonial Mexico outside of Mexico City. The guide, Francisco, did a great job. The lunch (not included) was very good and the restaurant had a fine view of the cathedral. During the free time, I had enough time to hire a taxi to take me up the hill to the Christ the Redeemer monument for an amazing view of Taxco and the cathedral. There was even enough time to look around town a little after coming back down the hill.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent way to see many of Mexico City's sites that are not centrally located downtown. The guide, Eduardo, was great and took us by Mexico City's World Trade Center, to the bull fighting ring, to the University of Mexico to view the exterior of the library, by the Azteca Stadium, to the Coyoacan neighborhood, and finally to Xochimilco where we took a boat along the canal. We enjoyed beer and marriachi music during the boat ride.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This trip is an excellent way to see a lot of France in only a few days. The tour is a large group, and covered in multiple languages, but the guides (Adrian and Carlos) did an outstanding job of accommodating everyone. The bus and hotels were comfortable. Plenty of time in most of the sites, but I would have liked more time at Mont St. Michel and Chambord. The tour is a very good value for everything that is included.
