Independent Day Trip to Mount Vernon and Old Town Alexandria from Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We really enjoyed this tour. It was an early start, but it meant we beat the crowds at Mt Vernon as we arrived there at 9am. We followed our driver's advice and headed straight for the house on arrival and enjoyed a tour of the house without the accompanying crowds. We were able to wander about the grounds and visit the museum at leisure. We had a full 3 hours at Mt Vernon, but it is so interesting we could have spent longer.
The drive through Old Town Alexandria was interesting, but there was no opportunity to stop and explore (apart from the photo stop at the church on the way to Mt Vernon).
I would definitely recommend this tour. Mt Vernon is a must see when visiting Washington.

Washington DC by Night Small-Group Tour

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We took this tour just after the 'shut-down' and on a night when there was a charity walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. The resulting road-blocks caused some problems with access but our driver and guide worked hard to ensure we saw the sights and that there was adequate time for photos.

The guide was informative and entertaining. Another plus was the bottle of water provided.

The tour is over 3 hours long and I would probably not recommend doing it after a full day of sightseeing.

Washington by night is not to be missed and this is the easiest way of visiting the many monuments.

A great day out!! Our guide, Trevor, was informative, with a great sense of humor. The Powerscourt Gardens were a highlight. We had adequate time to explore them and have lunch.

We enjoyed this trip immensely. The guides were informative and helpful. The scenery is spectacular. This is a long day beginning with a rail trip to Belfast, but well worth the time.

Cork and Blarney Castle Rail Trip from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our guide was informative and helpful. We learned lots about Ireland's past as well as visiting Blarney Castle (with enough time to kiss the Blarney Stone) and Cobh.

The guides were easily identified at Heuston Station. The day was well organised and we were able to see everything without being rushed.

3-Day Isle of Skye Small Group Tour from Edinburgh

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a great time on this tour. In the 3 days we saw much of Skye (despite the rain) and Scotland. Accommodation was really good (we chose B and B) - our host was friendly and helpful (even driving us the short distance into Portree when it was raining).

Sarah, our guide and driver, was great. Lots of history and stories of Scotland. Plenty of photo stops to capture the beautiful scenery. The small group was a plus.

A really enjoyable tour which is highly recommended to anyone wanting to experience the Scottish Highlands and Isle of Skye.
