Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, and Medieval Village of Lacock Including Traditional Pub Lunch

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
An excellent small group of about 20 excursion to the English countryside. The bus was clean and comfortable. The guide and the driver were not only polite and respectful but are also knowledgeable of each of the site. Along the way the tour guide shared historical facts. We stopped in a quaint town called Lacock and had lunch at a lovely English Pub inclusive. I recommend this trip highly as it is a nice way to get away from busy London and see the countryside. However, wished we had more time spent in Bath. It was rather late when we arrived in Bath due to traffic so we had less time to enjoy what lovely Bath had to offer.

London Airport Private Arrival Transfer

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The car, though tiny was clean and the driver was respectful and knowledgeable. He shared some London facts along the way. There was a bit of a confusion on our confirmation as we were asked to meet the driver at the Airport Information Desk. We waited for a bit until we asked for the driver to get paged. As it turns out, he was a different floorarrivals section of the airport.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
We had to call the day before our departure to confirm pick-up time with the shuttle company. I had to use my personal cell phone to call because while at the hotel in the morning, the number was busy, I couldn't spend all day waiting for the phone to ring on the other end. The driver arrived timely but the van was already packed with passengers and luggage. The van reeked of cigarette smell. The van was fully packed with passengers and luggage. The driver stopped at one more property prior to getting dropped off at the airport. I feel sorry for the first ones who got picked up early in the morning and had to go through the routine of waiting until the last passenger got picked up.

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The tour is well-organized, the guide is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Bus was a double-decker, clean and spacious. The tour was conducted in both English and Spanish catered to the languages spoken by the group that day. As we drove to Bruges, the guide spoke of historical sites along the way and gave background and facts. When we arrived Bruges, the walking tour was done with the group stopping at important and historical sites and architecture. We were given enough time to enjoy the town, took tons of photos and enjoyed waffles, fries and of course, Belgian beer on our own. Overall, worth it and a memorable experience.

Paris City Tour and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Paris City Tour was via a double-decker bus. The driver maneuvered around very busy Parisian avenues, and the tour guide would note important aspects about the sites (there's also a recorded guide, headset provided). The Seine River cruise was extremely amazing, lasting about 1 1/2 hours. The guide noted important facts of various different sights as we cruised along. Highly recommended activity while in Paris.

Montserrat and Cava Trail Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was by far the highlight of our trip to Barcelona! As it turned out, my husband and I were the only ones booked for this day. The tour went on as planned, though. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, patient and answered every question we had about Barcelona, history and sights. He briefed us thoroughly on where we are going, what to expect and what to do while we were there. The only way to get to Montserrat was via cable car because a couple of week before our reservation, there was a landslide and all routes were closed other than the cable car. It turned out to be a great experience and great way to get to Montserrat. You will be give enough time to walk around Montserrat, attend the mass and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding. The cava tasting was an awesome experience! We were assigned a cava expert who walked us around the winery, the museum and underneath where wines are being fermented until they reach maturity. After all that, we had tastings of several bottles they offer. Overall, this is a great tour. Well organized, well done.

Tarragona and Sitges Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It turned out to be a private tour though there were two others who were supposed to join us but did not show up and it was a super amazing day. Our guide was full of knowledge and filled us in on history of Barcelona as we drive through the beautiful country side and gave full background on Tarragona and Sitges. He speaks fluent English and is an excellent driver. Tarragona and Sitges are equally beautiful and fascinating towns. Tarragona is so full of history and very picturesque. Sitges is laid back, it being a beach destination. You will be given enough time to explore both on your own. Don't miss the chance to get this tour while in Barcelona. It is worth it.
