Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

City tour was interesting but not great. Took a while to drive around and pick up all of the people. Went to the museum which was interesting but not great. Then went for a ride on a boat on the creek, again not spectacular. And then to the shops or souks, but nothing really unique there that I hadn't seen in other countries. A way to see a bit of Dubai, but nothing to get overly excited about.

Burj Khalifa 'At the Top' Entrance Ticket

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Burj Khalifa was a great experience and well worth it. Took the metro there, but quite a walk through passages from the station to the shopping mall (which is adjacent to the Burj Khalifa). Didn't open until 10am on Sunday. The Dubai Mall is worth visiting in itself and the Burj Khalifa looks great from the outside. Queuing and travelling up the lift was a breeze. Great view from the top. Definitely worth doing.

Paris Rail Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Highly recommend this trip. It was a whirlwind trip but a great way to see Paris if you are short on time. Train trip is about 2 hours but only 20 minutes under the Chunnel. The opera house was closed so we spent more time at Notre Dame which was time well spent. As another traveller mentioned sensory overload!

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford Custom Day Trip

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a great tour guide from Hungary, Edina. The trip was a bit rushed but we packed a lot in. Would've liked to have spent more time at Oxford and visited a few other colleges but it gave us a taste.

Edinburgh Rail Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Amazing. The train ride was very pleasant and we went passed the sea at one point. Beautiful Scottish countryside. We didn't have much time in Edinburgh and the weather was atrocious apparently unusual for this time of year. Very cold wet and windy. Nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed it. First stop was Edinburgh Castle where I warmed myself up in the cafe with a haggis pie! John Knox's house was also a priority. I also climbed the monument for 3 pounds which gives you good views of Edinburgh. 287 dizzy spiral steps. I'm a thin guy and only just squeezed through the staircase at the top. Wet and slippery, but I think it cured my fear of heights! Would love to return to Scotland.

Caught the bus from Marble Arch to St Paul's Church passing through Piccadilly Circus and Trfalgar Square and then walked from there to the Tower of London which was a highlight. Caught the cruise from there to Westminster for Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Walked from there to Buckingham Palace and cut through Hyde Park to get to Hotel. Managed to pack a lot in one day.

Philadelphia and Amish Country Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Amazing history in Philadelphia. Got to sit in Congress Hall where Benjmin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others determined the future of America. Rocky steps was a lot of fun. The Amish experience was out of this world. Had the best turkey sandwich and apple pie I have ever had.
