Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I thoroughly enjoyed this 2 1/2 hour cruise, it was a relaxing and leisurely way to see Paris. The guide gave an interesting commentary in French and English on the history of the canal and the places of interest along the way. The scenery along the canal was picturesque and I found going through the locks very interesting. I began my tour from Parc de la Villette, which is easy to find, and ended at the Musee d'Orsay. The last short section of the canal is underground and I did not experience any smells at all, but found it fascinating and a wonderful sight welcomed me as the boat enters the Seine. I have been to Paris a number of times, and while this cruise was not the first thing on my list to do in Paris, it is now one of the best things I have done.

The best tour I did in Scotland. The guide (Barney) was so knowlegeable and made Scottish history come alive, I also loved his choice of music!. The itinerary is excellent, with the perfect mix of the most spectacular countryside, majestic castles and pretty towns. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, I loved every minute and have wonderful memories of a beautiful part of Scotland.

A HUGE thank you to Viator, I had a front row seat in the middle. Les Miserables is my favourite musical and the cast received a standing ovation. I was lucky the cast included the brilliant Alfie Boe and the talented, funny Matt Lucas.

Wizard of Oz Theatre Show

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I had great seats and loved the stage version of one of my favourite movies. The cast were outstanding, I loved Michael Crawford and Danielle Hope as Dorothy. But I thought the Wicked Witch of the West was brilliant and of course Toto, got the biggest cheer of all. The sets were excellent and overall a fabulous musical.

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An outstanding tour and one I highly recommend. I did this tour in winter and the snow covered scenery was very beautiful. There is the right amount of time at each of the 3 places visited with plenty of time at Neuschwanstein. It was an extra 16 Euro for a guided tour of the two castles, which was money well spent. Although the guide was a little abrupt she had a large group to look after and she made sure we were all on time at every stop. In winter the shuttle buses do not take people to the castle and we had a 40 minute walk, which I loved. If you are in Munich in my opinion this tour is a definite must do!

Loire Valley Castles Day Trip: Chambord, Cheverny and Chenonceau

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A wonderful day from start to finish. I went on Saturday and saw Amboise, which to me was the best of the 3 chateaux we visited. The group was large but there were 3 different interpreters, which meant that I had a guide who spoke only English for my group. The guide was exceptional and told us so much about the history of each chateaux. This tour was a highlight of my trip to Paris.

Provence Afternoon Half-Day Trip from Avignon

Avignon, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was an excellent tour from start to finish, with only 7 of us on this small group tour. Rousillion, Gordes and Les Baux were all charming old villages and the Pont du Gard was spectacular. We had enough time in each village to take photos and buy an icecream. We were able to walk over the Pont du Gard in the late evening withouth any crowds. The guide was very professional and made the day fun. I highly recommend this tour.

I really enjoyed this tour and all the places we visited were beautiful. We had enough time to enjoy all the villages and I especially loved St. Paul and Gourdon. We had a great guide who was friendly and made the day fun. It was a fantastic way to see both the beautiful Provence countryside and the riviera.

The best day out I had in England. I can highly recommend this trip. Time spent at each place was just right and the Cotswold villages of Bibury, Burford and Bourton-on the-water were just perfect. I would definitely do this tour again .
