Venice Tour Including Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was not what I was expecting, however I enjoyed it anyway. The tour is quite a history lesson and that part was not what I was expecting. The guide was very knowledgable. The tour was in a residential area of Venice. Quite different. It finishes at a great location with a great view. The Gondola Ride was very serene.

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The unfortunate and first thing that you learn about Venice is that in the daytime it is very busy. Up to 12 Cruise Ships can be in port and all these people are doing shore excursions for the hours that they are in port. This tour was great. The guide was good. However, the equipment used to listen to the guide is not so good. As you loose your distance from the guide due to the amount of people you have to get past, the commentary becomes distorted and inaudible. I thought the equipment I was issued may have been faulty but others were saying the same thing. If I could have heard all this guides commentary, it would have made putting up with the crowds worth it.

Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I did the full day. It was great. However I would have preferred the half day, as I am not the type of person that has to have a nice lunch and see inside all the attractions. For people who like to go in and see the attractions you would love it. The lunch was very filling.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The guide was amazing. He was fantastic. The group was great. The places and food were great. A friend had done this tour and recommended that I do this and do it on my first night in Madrid. I could not agree more, as you learn so much about the area and how to eat whilst in Madrid. Highly recommend this one.

Madrid Airport Arrival Shuttle Transfer

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The first problem encountered with the use of this service is the directions on the Voucher. They need to be clearer. The directions should say "Collect your luggage, exit gate 10 or 11, turn right and walk to the end of the building where our office is located". Perhaps we may be a bit silly, but we waited 15 minutes when you come out of gate 10 and 11 looking for the representative as we interpreted the Voucher to read that way. It was not until we rang them that we were given the simpler instructions. Once we located their Office we had to wait nearly an hour before our shared driver arrived.

Sitges and Freixenet's Cava Wine Cellars Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great day. Got very tipsy at the first stop, the Freixenet winery, which put us in a great mood for the rest of the trip. Sitges is wonderful, but not enough time, as we were rushing our amazing seafood lunch that we ordered at one of the beautiful Restaurants along the beach. Another 30 - 60 minutes at Sitges would be perfect. Or not be like us and eat on the run.

Tapas Evening Walking Tour of Barcelona

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My friend had done this tour and recommended it as a must to do on your first night in Barcelona. It was booked out and we could not do that. After doing the tour, I can only agree with my friend. The guide was amazing. The food and the way you order food is explained well. Also the walking tour shows you the areas and allows you then to go back and get lost wandering in these spectacular areas that the tour takes you. Really recommend this one.

Amsterdam Airport Shared Arrival Transfer

My Rating

My Review

I did not share with anyone and had a nice black Merc pick me up. The driver was great. Very nice way to arrive. The only issue was the instructions on the Voucher in my opinion. As they are not that clear. The meeting point is quite a distance from where you exit the airport. It is down a shopping alley and around a corner. I was looking for about 10 minutes closer to the exit point of the airport. I had to go looking and ask the information desk where the red squares were.

This was a great start to my stay in London. The hotel pick up was on time. Instructions at the bus terminal were clear. There were a lot of buses and people. However plenty of people on hand to assist. The bus was modern and clean. The tour leader made this day. He was an elderly gentleman he said in his 70's and everything was "Jolly Good" - what an amazing man and day.

Shared Arrival Transfer: New York Airports to Hotel

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a great service. I have no complaints at all. They were easy to find upon arrival. The wait was not long and the vehicles were nice and clean. It represents great value. Next time though I would book a private limo for the additional cost, as I was unlucky enough to be the last drop off which in some regards was good because I got a bit of a tour of New York but upon reflection, now I have been to New York, I would prefer the quickest and most direct route to my Hotel.

This was a great tour and introduction to Washington DC. I fail to remember the lady who was the tour guide, however she was amazing. The only negative comment that I would make about this tour is the trip on the boat. I failed to get it ?? There was nothing really special to see from out on the water even though it was nice and relaxing.

My Review

This was a long, long day. Up at 3am for a 4.30am pick up uptown when I was staying in So Ho. They used Jet Blue which was a great airline and I subsequently went on to use Jet Blue for other flights whilst I was in the USA. The day even though it was long is fantastic and is really great value for money. Lunch also is nice and at a beautiful location with the best views of the falls. I really enjoyed this day

A great intro to New York. I wish I could remind the guides name. He was a young African American guy with a fancy hair cut. He had the gift of speech though. He also provided some great advise that I subsequently took and was very greatfull for. It was a hot day and I kept seeing those people on the hop on hop off buses out there in the sun of those open top buses and was so greatful to be in a nice air conditioned bus. Rate this very highly and great value for money

Ultimate Grand Canyon 4-in-1 Helicopter Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One word describes this day - brilliant. From the hotel pick up in a nice limo. The waiting area at the airport is modern, clean and friendly. Instructions were clear by all the staff on the day. I wish I could remember the pilots name because he was excellent. The view going to and from the Canyon is wonderful as is the ride up the strip upon return. I cant speak highly enough about this day. I was on a natural high all day. So glad I spent the extra money and did this day by helicopter rather then sit in a bus for 3 hours I am told to get out to the Canyon from Las Vegas. Great value in my opinion and a great company to do the trip with

2-Day Yosemite National Park Tour from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an amazing experience. The tour itself is excellent and is worth every cent. The vehicle used was beautiful. Hotel pick up was on time. I would strongly recommend this tour to all. The overnight Hotel was fine. The only issue I had was the tour leader. He just lacked personality and the entire group felt the same. His advise was not good especially when it came to some of the walks. One guy suffered a painful injury as the tour leader failed to explain just how difficult and long the hike would be. Your given plenty of time though on this tour to explore at your own will. Having done this tour I do not know how people could appreciate the beauty of the Park by just going on a 1 day tour. Again I say this is a great tour and well worth the money. Although I have made some negative comments about the tour leader don't get me wrong as overall he was good. You just need to make sure you probe and ask a lot of questions and then i am sure you would get the correct advise as mentioned he was not clear in the first instance is all. But when asked he was always correct.

Disneyland or Disney's California Adventure with Transport from Los Angeles

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I watched Disney every Sunday night as a kid, so at age 50 this was a dream come true to go to Disneyland. What can I say - perfect. The vehicles used to get you there and back are nice, new and clean. The staff were also clear with their instructions. Money well spent in my opinion. I was told that there are fireworks each night and the departure time of this tour precludes you from seeing them. I was not bothered by that. However if you had children they may wish to see the fireworks

My Review

This was a great introduction tour. I read other reviews prior to booking this that talked about confusion at the bus terminal and not enough time at Universal Studios. For me it was all smooth sailing. The instructions at the bus terminal are clear. Hotel pick up was on time. There was more then enough time at Universal Studios. I am a single 50 year old man though so I had no children that would probably demand more time and enjoy that at Universal Studios. However if you want to see it and go on a few rides there is ample time. Seen a movie star as well so it was a great day. Highly recommend
