Gaudí’s La Pedrera at Night: A Behind-Closed-Doors Tour in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful experience- I highly recomend this tour, Seeing this at night is inspiring- its like being in Wonderland. Everyone inour group seems to have felt the same way. (I want some of what Gaudi was smoking!)

Montserrat Royal Basilica Half-Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

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

My Review

This was very disappointing for myself and the other English speaking members of our tour group. I would say that at least 75% of this tour was conducted in Spanish. By the time we realized that there were cable cars and a funicular that could have taken us further up the mountain, it was too late for us to make use of them. As beautiful as the area was (and it is spectacular), I wouldn't recommend this to anyone If I go back to Barcelona again, I will find my way there by alternate means, since it didn't really feel as if we had a guide anyway.

Very enjoyable. My only complaint would be the distance required to get to some of the venues, such as Park Guell.

My Review

I didn't realize until afterwards how much information and history I had picked up from our guide, Nico. He did a great job. There was a bit more walking than I had counted on (I have very bad knees!), but considering that much of what we did involved the narrow, twisting street in the Gothic Quarter, there was no way around it. And I enjoyed it so much, I retraced the route before I left Barcelona. I really recommend this to anyone who can handle a bit of walking. I wish now that I had booked the second half of the tour!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful tour- my favorite thing that I did in Paris. Our guide was Pavel, and when I go back, I hope that I can find a way to request him again. I understand that he does Versailles as well.....It is so great to have someone walk you through something that he has som much passion for!

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Louvre is beautiful, and our guide was very knowledgeable, but I found this exhausting because of my knee problems and the amount of stairs that we had to negotiate! I think I would choose to do this by myself in future, but just so I could pace myself better- no reflection on the guide, just my general physical state! Plus I would have like to have seen the Islamic art exhibit, but it is not yet open to tour groups, only to individuals

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We probably got the sunniest day in Bruges in a month, so that was a real plus. Having known someone who lived there for 3 years, I was told to expect rain. The tour was conducted in 3 different languages, but we split off and each had our own guides, so that was fine. Our guide was very good, and Bruges is a lovely medieval city. Really enjoyed the canal ride- its a must! There's a lot to buy, if yo are into that, and wonderful photos to be taken.

Skip the Line: Paris Catacombs Small-Group Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was amazing! The guide was great, very funny and reallly knew his stuff. What an incredbile experience. I would caution once more that there are alot of stairs going into and exiting the Catacombs, and the floor can be a bit slick. Having recently broken my leg in a fall, I was worried about losing my footing, so I'm glad that he warned us in advance. I'm also glad that I didn't know when I booked this, because I might not have, and I wouldn't have wanted to miss the experience.

My Review

What can I say? It doesn't matter how cliched the Eiffel Tour is, it is an iconic structure, and really an engineering marvel, and I could have gone there everyday- it took my breath away. Our guide Greg was funny and gave us alot of detail on the Tour itself as well as the points of interest that we could see from the lookout. My advice is to go just before dusk so you can also see it lighted up. Its magical!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I can't rate this subjectively- hurt my back and was unable to go- I could have rescheduled expect I had other things booked! However I spoke to a few other people, a couple who'd done the Versailled trip without a guide and thought it was "OK", and others who went with a guide and thought it was "Fantastic". I think you really need a guide to take you into these historical places and galleries in order to get the full impact of the experience, all the background stories, court intrigue etc. It's fine to "ooh and aah" by yourself, but you don't come away with nearly as much.
