Al Ain City Sightseeing Tour - The Garden City

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a very good tour that got us outside Dubai. We had a most enjoyable time seeing a garden city in the desert. The visit to the camel market and seeing racing camels was most enjoyable as was the visit to the mountain hot springs. A good lunch too. One complaint. We had to be transferred some distance to meet up with the main bus and needed to pick up other travellers on the way. The problem is that there was restricted room in the back of the transfer vehicle - very uncomfortable for someone like me withy two titanium knees. .. !!! Other than this, a good day out to a more traditional desert town...

Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Review

This was a great evening... A lovely cruise around the Dubai creek with a superb 6 course gourmet meal with soft drinks included and live subtle piano music. Staff were excellent too. Would do this again . But one big complaint . For us we were some 30-60 minutes away from the dinner cruise and had t0 take a taxi. We only just made it. Why can't Viator include hotel pickups for this tour. It would make sure customers got to the cruise ship well in time without the sort of stress we experienced.. !!!

Bangkok Tuk Tuk Small Group Adventure Tour

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was our last day in Bangkok. We had no idea of the itinerary when we met up with our 2 other tuk-tuk companions - 2 young Scottish girls - and our Guide Joe. This turned out to be a great tour. We went first to the Golden Mountain where we had a 360 steps to reach the temple complete with buddhas and bronze bells and a wonderful view over Bangkok's temples. Next on to the flower market which was a riot of colour and smells and the amulet market where people buy these good luck 'charms'. Our big surprise was to be able to go back to the Wat Po temple complex, probably the most spectacular in Bangkok including the Grand Palace. We had almost forgotten how spectacular this is with the many guilded roofs, turrets, myriads of golden buddhas, intricately carved stupas with flowers, fish and animals, and last but not least the famous golden reclining buddha which takes up a whole temple - amazing as ever. Joe came into his own as a very knowledgeable and enthusiatic guide who having been a monk at the temple for 5 years, provided some unique and interesting insights to the temple complex. The tour finished at the King Garden overlooking the Chao Phraya river which had a remnants of a fort. Loved the tour, but could have done without Joe's gory photos of traditional ways of using birds to dispose of corposes.. !!! A little too graphic for us Westerners, although the Scottish girls semeed to have stronger stomachs !!!

Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This wasa great day tour as it had a bit of everything for the seasoned traveller - scenic coach trip into the hinterland, a visit to the Kings Summer Palace, visits to several ofg Ayutthaya's 12-14c brick built temple complexes, and completed by a 2 hour river cruise back to Bangkok, and a great buffet lunch. The Summer Palace was a wonderful complex gardens, ornate bridges, temples and lakes. The Ayutthaya temples complexes were spectacular, one with one of the largest stone reclining buddhas in the world. The boat trip enabled us to see many of the major temples and historic buildings in Bangkok and was a very leisurely way to finish a great trip.

Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Bangkok, Thailand

My Review

This was a great evening. The transfer transport linked up well with the boat trip. This boat was much better than that used by Sun River for their Ayutthaya tour. We had a great buffet with complementary soft drinks and water. The buffet was varied and service by the ship's staff was excellent. We don't often by souvenir photos but this time we did - the frame itself was well worth the money. We were able to see all the major historic buildings and temples of Bangkok illuminated which was lovely. Throughout we had a range of music - male and female singers and a saxophonist who was excellent. The range of music was appropriate for most ages, but for the youngsters who wanted to dance, it slightly deteriorated into 'garage' type music towards the end, but made for a great atmosphere. Would definitelt recommend this trip...
