Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you ever wanted to do Gibraltar, but you've only got one day, this is the tour for you. It seems to pack in everything the Rock has to offer. You get a tour of Gibraltar with stops for the caves the apes and an optional tour of the tunnels. (the tunnels are well worth the additional charge). There's also the opportunity for some duty free shopping.
I can cross Gib off my bucket list now.

Small-Group Sintra Royal Palaces Day Trip from Lisbon: Pena Palace, Queluz Palace and Sintra Palace

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a highlight of our short stay in Lisbon, despite the fact my wife had her wallet stolen from her backpack. In fact I would say it's an essential for anyone staying in Lisbon for more than a couple of days. We were told that Walt Disney based his castle in part on Sintra, well he failed to do it justice. It's a fairy tale, but it's real. The mountain setting is gorgeous too.
The tour was greatly enhanced by our charming, informative, funny and attentive multilingual guide, Francisco

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We've been Dali fans since we visited the Dali Museum in St Petersburg in Florida. We enjoyed St Petersburg more largely because it was a more leisurely civilised experience, and we like that better these days. I guess if you're younger you might prefer the more congested anarchic experience at Figueres.
I also thought that Figueres would be picturesque, which it definitely isn't.
The visit to the Costa Brava though was an unexpected delight.

Skip the Line: Best of Barcelona Tour including Sagrada Familia

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you've only got a short time in Barcelona, do this tour. As the name suggests you get all the most well known spots covered in comfort, with a number of photo stops along the way.
For many people Sagrada Familia is the highlight of a trip to Barcelona, and rightly so. This tour, again does what it says on the label and gets you oin quickly then gives you plenty of time to look round and soak in this unique piece of architecture.

Dubai Super Saver: City Sightseeing Tour and Desert Safari

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

With only three days in Dubai, this combined tour was a perfect fit. The city tour was enjoyable with the Museum the highlight. The desert Safari was terrific. Careering around the dunes was not for the faint hearted, and quite a thrill. Riding a camel was an enjoyable experience too.

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

There are some things you really should do in Milan; DaVinci's Last Supper, Duomo, La Scala, Galleria, and Sforza Castle. This tour does them all and does them well. We'd been to some of these before but this tour gave us so much more info and insight.

We really enjoyed the opportunity to see a different side of the Adriatic Coast. This tour had historical sights and awesome views. The trip from Kotor Bay up the 25 hairpin bends to the mountains was amazing.

Mostar Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The bridge was even better than I expected, and it was interesting to see the contrast between the clean modern buzz of Croatia and the relative post communist drabness of Bosnia

Adelaide Super Saver: Adelaide City Sightseeing Tour plus Barossa Valley and Hahndorf Tour

Adelaide, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Adelaide is probably not the most exciting city on the planet, so the optional river cruise was probably the highlight.
The Barossa tour was pleasant, if a little long and Hahndorf was quite nice.
The driver was excellent, very well informed, and endlessly courteous, doing his best with the material
