New York Dinner Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The views were out of this world and something to die for! But the food was very disappointing and had no redeeming features. It was a very expensive cruise when the quality of the meal was so poor.

Enjoyed the trolley bus and great way to get an overview of Boston before exploring on foot. We travelled on all routes, particularly enjoyed the one that went through suburbs, which included many Embassies.

Enjoyed the tour, was a small group, tour guide was irritating at times! however the visits to the memorials and Arlington Cemetery was quite moving and it was great to get the history of each memorial. So all in all well worth it

Washington DC Dinner Cruise

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise - staff were attentive and went out of their way to meet your needs, difficult to pick out sights may have been good to have a brief commentary when going past. The Captain very welcoming when coming aboard, Jerome, the Manager was attentive and our waitress Dianne did a great job. The band played some wonderful easy listening and dancing music.

The bus moved too slowly due to the large amount of traffic, so spent many hours just sitting in traffic which didn't seem like a good way to around.

Harlem Sunday-Morning Gospel Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great experience - Guide was knowledge and provided some great history. The service and singing was fascinating unfortunately you don't stay for the whole service which is fine as could go on for hours but does make the service a bit disjointed leaving half way through. The church was warm which made it very inviting on a cold NYC day!

My Review

Great way to see the sights when you first arrive - we stayed on board to do a whole trip around each route - very slow due to NYC traffic and commentaries quite variable. One day weather was freezing and began raining - no where to sit below - we were issued with plastic ponchos which were functional.

What a great experience ! Thanks to Georgia and Patricice who brought the colosseum, forum and pallotine alive, despite the very hot weather. The tour was well organised and both guides very accommodating. Need good walking shoes, energy and water.

My Review

An absolute must in Roma - the small group was great, Laura our guide was passionate about the art and history which brought it to life, she was well organised so felt it flowed without any major delays. Certainly need good walking shoes and water as is exhausting for the less fit!

My Review

What a great way to see Roma, the pick up went well but would only pick up at a hotel so we designated a hotel close to the apartments we were staying (!), the tour company not particularly friendly when we were dropped of there ( and no seats to seat and wait) the tour guide Rosina was delightful and full of fun - despite being advertised as English,it was Spanish and English however we got to meet some great people over dinner ( language was a barrier Portguese and German) however we had some great laughs interpreting each other! The night lights view over Rome was special as well as the Vatican at night. The meal was the only down point which was an experience - there was no Rome love in putting together - plastic comes to mind! It was amazing to see the amazing level of activity in the streets at midnight on a Wednesday night. Rosina definitely made it the great experience it was!

My Review

What a great way to see Roma , it suits any level of bike rider as very gentle with few hills, the bikes were well maintained. Our guide Francesco was very accommodating, a bit light on Roma history but it was about the experience more than an historical tour and he did a fantastic job.
