New York City Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was most informative. The guide had a voice that everyone could clearly hear above the traffic. He did not walk too quickly. I would recommend this tour to Antonella interested in slavery.

Monticello and Thomas Jefferson Country Day Trip from Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A good drive through the outcry side. David Cooper, the driver and guide was excellent. However, the stop at the Tavern too long, lunch at 10.40 am too early, it would be better to have more time at Montecello and be able to have some lunch at this stop as there are facilities there. I would recommend this tour but would not repeat it myself.

2-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

Washington D.C.

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A great way to see Washington DC. David Cooper, the guide and driver was excellent. However, three hours in the Air and Space museum, just over the top. More time at the Capital to fully see the Library would have been far better. A lot of the participants complained of the long time at the museum. I would still recommend this tour as a great way to become familiar with the city.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was just wonderful, nine of us on the mini van. Mark the guide was most knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Orkneys. We elected to stay at a hotel and it was good, very clean and wonderful food.

My Review

My husband and took this tour and can recommend it to everyone. There were thirteen of us, all got along together and Dave the driver and guide was super. His knowledge made the trip interesting and exciting. We booked three star hotels and were most pleased with the accommodation. There was,in fact,nothing we could fault with the tour.

Lido de Paris Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent show and seating. I was a little disappointed that they did not have a small section showing the 'can can' as they have previously and as other shows in Paris do. Still it was a most enjoyable evening and I would recommend the Lido to anyone wanting to see a top-class Paris revue.

Montparnasse Tower 56th Floor Observation Deck

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent, a different view to seeing Paris than from the Eiffel Tower. It was good to see Paris from a different angle. However, we did find it difficult to find the entry to the Tower as the signs indicating entry lead to areas that were blocked off.

Treasures of the Opera Garnier Tour in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Most impressive, a must for anyone visiting Paris. The guide was excellent and the internal of the Opera House just magnificent. A pity our tour was on a Sunday as the House closed at 1.00 pm for an evening performance and we had to vacate and did not have time on our own to further explore.

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Just excellent in all aspects. While the day was a long one it was worth every second of it. The journey was broken on both ways by a stop long enough for one to have a snack etc. The canal tour of Bruges was most informative and the guide from the bus excellent. A brilliant day out. We would recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see Bruges, a most delightful area.

Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

An informative afternoon, but a little boring at the end going through the locks. The guide's information was good. We were a little disappointed that the only refreshments available were through a vending machine. We had not had lunch and thought we would be able to purchase some on board but found we could only have water, soft drinks or sweets from the machine. I would probably not take this tour again.

Just great, I had been previously but my granddaughter had not. We were on the 5.30 pm tour. Greg our guide was most informative and helpful. I would recommend this tour to anyone and hopefully they would manage to have Greg as their guide. My apologies Greg if you see this review, you had disappeared before I could 'tip' you.

Absolutely the only way to transfer from the airport to the hotel, a must for arriving in Paris. The driver gave a commentary on the way in and it was really a guided tour of Paris. Recommended to everyone.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great tour and guide, Joe Npppt. Joe certainly knew his City and conveyed all information in a manner that was easily understood. At the end of the tour he organised a taxi to take us back to our hotel as he was concerned about us managing to obtain one. He went out of his way to be helpful. I would recommend this tour to anyone and hopefully they would manage to have Joe as their guide. I would rate this five stars

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

I undertook this tour as my granddaughter had studied Pompeii for her HSC. I had been to Pompeii about twenty years ago. This tour was good but insufficient time was allowed. My granddaughter was a little disappointed. The tour down was awful, a fifteen minute stop where there was in excess of fifteen buses. The guide on the bus was raving on about about Highway One, nobody was interested. The tour I had of Pompeii twenty years ago was superior. I would not undertake this tour again, the day was long. I would endeavour to go individually by train and take the bus from Pompeii station to the site.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Small-Group Tour including Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I had been to the Vatican previously but my granddaughter had not. We were on the early morning tour and thoroughly enjoyed it, there were ten in our group so we managed to get around without any hassle. As it was raining there weren't too many people not on tour so we managed to see everything without crowds. The guide commented in one room where there weren't any people that she had never seen it like that before. I certainly recommend this tour but would take the earliest one in the day possible to avoid the long queues and crowds.

Paris Paradis Latin Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I had been to Paris Latin previously, as well as three other similar shows in Paris. I had my granddaughter with me so we selected this show. It was good but in future would either choose Moulin Rouge or Nouvelle Eve. We did not have the dinner package due to dietary problems.

Too crowded and insufficient time to view the gardens. We were on the early tour. I had been to the Palace a few times previously but my granddaughter had not. In future I would skip the Palace and spend all the time in the gardens.
