The Castro: Historical Walking Tour of San Francisco's Gay & Lesbian District

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Kathy was a terrific guide. The history and local knowledge Kathy shared was very informative. I felt I went away 'feeling' the history in the Castro, not only being educated upon it. This tour is highly recommended.

Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruise from Te Anau

Te Anau, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Doubtful Sound tour is amazing. The captain of the boat while we were on the Doubtful Sound was very considerate of passengers and actively looked at making it a truly remarkable experience. This was done by slowing down for us to see dolphins and seals. Excellent tour company!

Boston Freedom Trail Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This tour we booked rather than taking train from New York to Boston as we knew little about the City. When we got to Boston, it was an amazing city so full of history. It is a city I would love to go back to and explore further. Now the tour... The mini-bus ended up being a tour bus with 53 passengers. Not what was expected from booking. The tour was ran by two guides- one English speaking and one Italian. They were both lovely people, but the guidance was very unprofessional. The English guide was always forgetting the relevance of landmarks and mixing up significant historical figures names. He got things wromg on so many occasdions which i wad aware of, i had no confidence in what he was telling me was correct. The time at Cambridge Common after lunch did not occur as advised in the itinerary. At 1 point the other guide decided to stand in the middle of the group while smoking. On the way to Boston 8 bottles of oil were pumped into the bus as it was losing oil. We were advised it would get to Boston where it could then be looked at further. Luckily it did. The bus was in very poor shape with broken AC, arm rests etc. The windows were filthy preventing picture opportunities. Now the bad part. After travelling back from Boston for twenty minutes the bus breaks down. We were stranded for the next five hours waiting for a replacement bus. Management who the tour guides were in constant contact with obviously didn't care much. The guides tried their best. My advice... Take the train and get the hop-on and hop- off bus. Definitely the worst tour experience I have had.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

An excellent tour to take in some of Englands greatest landmarks in one day. The time at each lcation is good. Could have spent more time at Windsor Castle, but then this would have limited time at Bath or Stonehenge. The groupwe were on was quite large (51 people). The problem with this is the guide would start talking about a landmark and if you were at the back you would miss key information.

Panoramic Tokyo Day Tour - Meiji Shrine, Asakusa Temple and Tokyo Bay Cruise

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a great tour to get a feel for Tokyo. We decided to do this tour at the commencement of our week stay in the city. It definitely gave us an insight into where we wanted to go back to and see sights we probably would not have gotten to. The lunch location overlooking Tokyo Bay was amazing. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very experienced. You definitely get value for money for this tour.
