Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The entire tour was great with one major exception...about 60K into the 200 KIlometer ride back to a Cancun, the bus ran out of gas. Not something you'd expect to happen on a major tour with 30-40 people on board. The bus was idle for 45 minutes while the driver took gas from other passing tour buses to get enough fuel to get us back to Cancun. I guess a positive note was we didn't see any of the other three dozen or so buses on the side of the road on the way back. So only one seemed to have this problem :)

Dublin City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Dublin, Ireland

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

My Review

We've been on a number of city tours and this was among the worst. Audio was very poor and uninspired. It was better with live narration (it depended on the bus), but even live narration was flat.

My Review

We were on tours out of London, Edinburgh and Dublin. This was our favorite. Sarah (our driver) was a great host and Scotland provides a great experience.

Edinburgh has the best hop-hop-off tours between London, Edinburgh and Dublin. The live narration is excellent!

London Pass

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It's really hard to find the "booth" where you exchange the voucher and not being able to pick it up before 10 am cuts into your ability to use the card in a single day. Some attractions stop accepting visitors at 3:30 pm (Westminster Abbey)

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Kinda what you expect in hop-on-hop-off. Provides a good overview of the city, but not stellar. Busses are nice, but we're crowded. Main ticket office is a bit hard to find.
