Hot Air Balloon Flight over Catalonia

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This trip was exciting and fun! I am very glad that we decided to do the private balloon ride as it made everything more personal and fun. The tour starts out with driver picking you up at a determined location and he takes you out into the country where you will meet the pilot. Once you arrive, the pilot sets up the balloon and the group is asked to help. Once in the air you are able to float for about one hour. On the day we went on this ride the weather was bad and we did not have much wind or sun. Due to this, we pretty much stayed in one area for about half hour and it was not the most attractive area of Spain. We landed pretty close to power lines so that was a little scary but the adventure was the most excitement we got so we were happy about it. Also, upon return the "brunch" that is served is a grilled cheese sandwich with a very sweet Cava to wash it down. We were not expecting a three course meal but were taken back by the "brunch" description when we saw that it was grilled cheese sandwiches. Overall, the tour was fun but a little boring once in the air as the weather was not cooperating. The staff was really nice though and they made the trip more entertaining and fun!

Montserrat and Cava Trail Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

My Review

This trip was amazing! The tour guide, Belen (I think I have her name right), was really great! She was new to the company and did a really good job describing the tour and all of the various locations and landmarks. I feel really bad as there were about 4 members in our group that treated her horribly and acted like fools and gave her a hard time as she was not able to always answer all of their questions. Montserrat was beautiful and I highly recommend taking the lift to the top of the mountain as the views were breathtaking! The boys choir at 1pm was nice but the church was very crowded and I would have rather just bought a CD. The wine tour was also great! The winery is huge and has a lot to offer! It is a lot of walking so for those that have a hard time walking I would not recommend this tour. We loved it and definitely recommend!

The driver was at the airport on time and had a printed sign with our name on it so it was very easy to find him. He was extremely professional and helped us with our bags. The van was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend.

Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Paris! It was amazing! The palace was so beautiful and the experience of going to the market to select your picnic items and then have a picnic in front of the palace was unforgettable! The tour guide was very professional and was very nice and really made the tour enjoyable. One thing to note, when you go to the Palace you must visit the Palace first before the gardens because they will not let you in to the Palace after the gardens without waiting in line again. We made this mistake because it looked like it was going to rain and we went to the gardens first and were not able to get in the Palace. The actual time for the Palace and garden tour is too short and I would have loved to spend more time there but the tour was still totally worth every penny and more!

Champagne Tasting on a Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

So beautiful! The sights were beautiful and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. You get 3 whole glasses of champagne on this tour and we thought we would just get a taster so it was nice. You also get a private room so you don't have to fight for seats. Totally worth it!

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

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

My Review

I will start by saying that the Parisian people are so nice and kind! However, the taxi drivers are rude and really make the city unpleasant. I was really glad we booked this shuttle as we arrived really early in the morning and we did not have to find a taxi. From the moment we met our driver he was in a big hurry and said he did not speak English (we asked for an English speaking driver) and he kept running off through the airport. During the ride to the hotel he did not say a word and looked like he was upset. When we got to the hotel he pulled our bags onto the sidewalk and got in the car and left. I was trying to pull my money out to tip him but never got the chance because he just took off like he was mad. He never said bye or anything. Totally rude and really started our trip on a bad note. It was nice to have a driver waiting when we arrived but just know that they are rude and not expect much. We took many taxis during our stay and they were all the same.
