I grew up in south west Sydney, but have lived in the ACT for about half my life. I love reading, music, photography, writing, watching sport, swimming, walking and travel.
A great experience. Susan was prompt and friendly and maximised my viewing opportunities. The buffet breakfast was very generous and my seat at the table was very close to the orangutans. A most memorable experience!
My guide, Susan, phoned in advance to confirm our meeting place, and was prompt and reliable. She worked well with driver, Patrick, and cheerfully provided me with interesting insights into life in Singapore. The best part was the visit to the beautiful National Orchid Garden. I was less enamoured by the sales pitch, barely disguised as a 'tour visit' to the Gem factory. Overall, however, a positive experience, and Susan was a delight!
An excellent full-day tour, with driver, Katherine, picking me up at my hotel in a mini-van, and only another 4 people doing the tour. Getting out of Paris was an adventure in itself, and I was in awe of Katherine, who took it all in her stride while giving us a potted history of France. The tours are both self-guided with audio guides available, and allow time to look around the grounds. We drove through Barbizon without stopping. I joined a couple on the tour in hiring a golf buggy (EUR 30 for 45 minutes to navigate the grounds at Vaux Le Vicomte, which really maximised our viewing opportunities. Lunch at "The Squirrel" restaurant at Vaux Le Victomte was very nice.
