Super Hoover Dam Express Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was great. Super guide, he was sooo knowledgeable about Vegas and the Hoover Dam. He made the trip very entertaining also. Becareful to make sure that you're aware of your hotel collection point in the morning as they told us the wrong place and then denied it.

I'm not sure why they stopped off at the chocolate factory on the way back though?? Seemed a little bit pointless...

The Queen Mary

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The administration at this venue was shocking. We went to collect the headsets only to find that the person wasn't there and had gone missing. We were on a tight schedule which isn't advised if you're wanting to make the most of this trip.

We went on the Russian submarine, did the self tour around the ship and had the most amazing guide to take us around the ship and explaining the various rooms. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour particularly interesting.

You could easily spend a whole day on this tour.

Universal Studios Hollywood General Admission Ticket

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was amazing. We upgraded to VIP tickets once we got there ($300 per person) which was well worth it. We were part of a small group (around 8 people) who were lead around the park and the attractions with front of the line passes. We didn't have to queue for any rides. We were also given a buffet breakfast and gorgeous buffet lunch which was amazing. We were also taken on an exclusive tour of the studios (20 in the bus) rather than the 300 people on the regular bus tours. We were also able to walk on the sets which was very special.

Napa and Sonoma Wine Country Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This was a waste of a day whilst in San Francisco. It felt as though we were being taken from one vineyard to another, just so that they could sell us wine. As we were flying back to the UK, we were unable to take any wine home with us anyway. My partner and I do like a good wine, but this was merely a day long sales pitch.

My Review

We had a really funny bus driver for our hop on hop off tour which made the tour more enjoyable. We did get off at one stop and then re-joined the bus which was useful as it gave us a chance to look around the Golden Gate Park and Japanese Tea Gardens. We also stopped off at the Golden Gate Bridge and then caught the next bus, which were roughly every 30 minutes.

Great tour, although ours was diverted the day of the Real Madrid game, with no notice being given. The audio guide provide sufficient information.

Salzburg Super Saver: Original Sound of Music and Salt Mines Day Trip

Salzburg, Austria

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

My Review

This trip was split into 2, the morning was the Salt Mines and the afternoon was the Sound of Music Tour.

Salt Mines
This was a bit of a gimic tour. The coach drove us to Berchestagen first of all and the tour guide showed us a shop that had a map of the Eagles Nest and he explained the site, even though this wasn't a trip to the Eagles Nest. We then went to the salt mines and walked around (with a German speaking guide) and audio guides that were in English for us. It was distracting, as we were desperately trying to listen to the audio but the guide was speaking over the top. Didn't really learn much about the salt mines.
Sound of Music Tour
The coach took us to a couple of places that were used in the Sound of Music. Not a great deal to see, the chapel, a lake, a couple of buildings and the pagoda. We were taken to Mondsee towards the end of the tour which was beautiful and had an hour or so to do what we liked on the island, we were given a suggestion of a pub to go to, couldn't help but feel that the guide was getting paid for the extra custom!!

Mozart Concert and Dinner at Stiftskeller in Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great evening. The meal was lovely too. We sat down and had the opportunity to order drinks (they billed everyone at the end for the drinks), the wine was over priced though, as you'd expect. We had 20 minutes of Don Giovanni played by a string quintet and 2 opera singers then were given the starter. Another 20 minutes of performance followed, of the Marriage of Figaro, then the main course, then 20 minutes of The Magic Flute, then dessert. Beautiful venue, and the food was lovely. Some people had a different menu to the majority, so it appears that there are more than one menu to choose from when you book, I wasn't aware of this.
