Northern Lights Night Tour from Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

They tried but the lights were just not in the sky. Walked around in permafrost mud for 1/2 hour than hung out at the little cafe for about 3 hours. Bus ride back and forth is about an hour each way. They offer to take us out the next night (and up to two years) if the lights are a bust. Next night was rained out and canceled. They are well organized and try but it is an act of nature if they appear.

2-Day Komodo National Park and Rinca Island Wildlife Adventure from Bali

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A great tour through the islands with a stop for a swim, a great lunch and finally the nature preserve with the Dragons as the highlight of the tour. Guides were great and along to help at every step of the way. We saw plenty of Dragons as well as deer, water buffalo and monkey's. Had to wait at the bat site about an hour for the sun to go down but then hundreds of bats take to the sky.

Downside is that it would be great to go to the hotel from the plane for a short while to prep for the tour. Tour operator wanted to go straight to the boat with my luggage and hotel does not have a room ready when you land.

Korean Palace and Market Tour in Seoul Including Insadong and Gyeongbokgung Palace

Seoul, South Korea

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Interesting but rushed. Bus arrangements were festival seating with people constantly changing seats at every stop and sitting in isle seats. Makes it hard to leave your things on the bus. A few of the passengers were irate at the lack of discussions from the guide and the rush through sites. I would not recommend unless I knew someone really into Korean history/ temples.

3-Day Mt Fuji, Kyoto and Nara Rail Tour by Bullet Train from Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Hard to give this tour a fair rating. Fuji fogged in as well as other mountain. Lake smells of sulfer. My 4 year old son and I were peeled off the tour at the end and put on a train by ourselves for about six hours until we were checked into our Kyoto hotel. Though the tour company did have an agent watch over us at each segment (station) of our local express train ride. Went to bed about midnight and up at 7am for Kyoto tour. My son was to tired by mid-day to finish. Then hang around near the hotel all day for your night time bullet train ride to Tokyo. They don't have an earlier train option?

My Rating

My Review

Nice scenery but the tour seemed more of a glorified taxi ride. A bit more guiding would have been nice. Very crowded. One seat left on the bus open. The so called inclusive meal (which I found out later others were allowed to exclude) is not so inclusive. I ordered just water. I received a bottle of tap water (I watched them all over Europe refill the bottles behind the bar) and when I got up to leave was charged 5.20 euros. Outrageous! For tap water on a inclusive tour option. Ruined my day. The little things.

A whirl wind tour through Paris of the top spots. If your up for a walk and a lot of crowded sights this will do the trick. I still can't imagine why we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, standing at the entrance to the Eifel tower restaurant. Don't they know we are coming every day? Wouldn't a call ahead fix that?

2 days needed to do all 4 lines. Buses stopped for periods way to long with no explanation. The green line is the most popular and madness prevailed. They never stop people from getting on even when the bus is way overloaded. Madness. fights almost broke out. Suggest they double the number of bus's on the green line.

Brussels Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Horrible. Rude drivers who seem to hate there jobs. Many passed me by at my first stop which was poorly (not) marked. Standard answer when a complaint or question was asked, "take another bus". Drivers drive crazy on routes to small for the bus at times. At least half the ear plugs (at least in English) did not work. On one bus it started to rain and the roof leaked right over my seat. When I ended the tour I moved down stairs to get off and pressed the "stop at next stop" button. None worked (and none upstairs I could see). Fortunately two people were waving him down to get on at my stop. Before I could move to the front of the bus the two people got on and the driver started to speed off. I screamed stop and he was shocked I wanted to get off as he informed me that this was no longer a stop on the line. I turned as I stepped off, that according to his office and map and that I got on here this morning it was. Before I could point out that he stopped to let two people on he slammed the door in my face and took off. I have used a lot of Hop on/ Hop off services but this was the worst. Horrible drivers and management. They could care less about your tour or safety.

A nice little tour through these mid-evil cities. Guide was informative in many languages. They steer you to their choice of lunch and shopping places but you can disregard without pressure. A few additional option tours for an extra fee but you can wander off and hook up later if you do not want to partake.

Not much to see in Luxembourg as it is a working city for banks and hedge funds, but if you want to see the old town, and take a leisurely drive through the country side this is a great one day tour. I enjoyed the chance to see this part of Europe and the guide looked after us well. A very nice guy.
