Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent experience led by 2 brilliant chefs! Everything had been prepared for us in advance an on arrival we were split into 4 groups of 5. Each of the chefs supervised 2 of the groups. We were shown exactly what to do and the chefs continually checked on us throughout the preparation of the 4 courses. I was surprised and delighted to discover that the dishes were quite complex. When the cooking was finished we adjourned to the cellar to eat the fruits of our labour! The meal was fantastic, one of the best I ate on my short stay in Florence!

Paris City Segway Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A fantastic and fun way to see Paris! Our guide, Rick, was extremely patient as he helped us individually to gain confidence on the Segways before our departure. He was also very knowledgeable, giving a lot of information about the various monuments where we paused. An unforgettable experience! Ensure, however, that you do confirm your booking 24 hours in advance as we found that the Fat Tire Co had booked us in for a different activity on a different day and we had to contact Viator in the USA to help sort it out, which they duly did.

Istanbul City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent for gaining a first impression / quick overview of the city, but perhaps quick is the wrong word because the traffic can be horrendous in places causing delays where the only thing to do is listen to some iffy music.

Montserrat Royal Basilica Half-Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A most enjoyable experience! I'd recommend the optional trip up the funicular as there are stunning views of the monastery from the top. We were advised to stay at the back of the basilica so that we could make a qick exit after the choir sang, which meant we couldn't really see them. We had to view the black madonna from afar as we weren't prepared to wait 2 hours in the queue. However, overall it was well worth a visit.

Wieliczka Salt Mine Half-Day Trip from Krakow

Krakow, Poland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent trip in every respect. Well organised, very good English speaking guide. Must be the best mine visit anywhere, a real wow. We need not have worried about all the stairs, they were much easier than anticipated. Recommended as a "must do" if you have the time whilst in Krakow.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum Half-Day Trip from Krakow

Krakow, Poland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This rating is for the trip itself which was excellent in every respect, well organised, well paced, good itinerary, excellent on site english speaking guide.I would recommended it as not to be missed. However, I must point out that it proved impossible to confirm in advance the exact pick-up time and location. I am not too sure if the local contact Intecrac actually exists. My tip is to play safe and make your own way to the Sheraton Hotel for 0900.
