Monterey, Carmel and 17-Mile Drive Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour was good in parts, we had an excellent driver/guide for the day, his name was Richard, very knowledgeable about the places we went to. The only complaint was that we did not stop at some of the attractions, for instance the picture you use to advertise the tour, The Lone Pine tree, it would of been nice to stop also at Pebble Beach golf club. The Monterey Aquarium was disappointing and needed more time there and also Carmel, not enough time, taking into account that we needed to eat. In line with these issues we fully realise that the journey is a long way to travel in the one day.

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour plus Bay Cruise

San Francisco, California

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Muir Woods was just great, we both loved the time we spent there and recommend a visit to this area, however we did not enjoy Sausalito, nothing of much interest there, can not understand the hype over the place. The Bay Cruise was also fantastic, we enjoyed going under the Golden Gate and the cruise around Alcatraz. We did not like being dumped off the bus at the Alcatraz pier and told to walk to pier 39 to catch the Bay Cruise, we were the only ones doing the cruise on the bus and it appeared the driver couldn't be bothered going that way, his name was Walter and did not appear too helpful or friendly at times during the tour.

Viator VIP: Early Access to Alcatraz and Exclusive Cable Car Sightseeing Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a top tour, we really enjoyed the audio tour of Alcatraz the drive around the city and over the Golden Gate was fun, but beware it is very cold at times on the open sided trolley bus. The visit to the Boudin"s Bakery was very interesting and the lunch supplied was really great, served in boxes from the bakery, although I must say it would of been easier to eat sat at a table instead of while the bus was travelling around twisting and turning. All in all a good experience and highly recommended.

This was a highlight of the visit to SF the show was very funny and non stop, the place was packed, it rates up there with some of the great shows around the world, The costumes and the speed of changing were a sight to see, a visit to SF would not be the same without going here, don't miss it.

Snoqualmie Falls and Seattle Winery Tour

Seattle, Washington

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Seeing the falls was really good, but visiting the wineries was a little bit of a drag, for a start wine tasting before lunch is not ideal in our book, not a lot to see and seemed a waste of a day driving around just for half an hour at the falls, although we did enjoy a really nice pizza for lunch........

Seattle in One Day: Sightseeing Tour including Space Needle and Pike Place Market

Seattle, Washington

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

There is not enough stars to tick for this tour, we were luck in that we were the only ones booked for the day and they have the rule not to cancel no matter what, so off we went driven around in comfort in a Mercedes Benz, the driver was just great, his name was Mario, the knowledge the guy had of Seattle was never ending, we had already been to Pike Place so we skipped that and he took us to places that the tour buses don't go, it was a day to remember, one thing we saw was the Freemont Troll a must see, but buses don't go there due to the narrow streets.

Whistler Small Group Day Trip from Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was a little disappointing, but worth while, we think it would of been a more worthy trip in the middle of winter with all the lifts etc. working, but just the same we do not regret visiting. The trip up to Whistler was fun and we saw some interesting places and the scenery was amazing, a visit to the cultural centre was interesting and worth while.

Vancouver North Shore Day Trip with Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great place to visit, loved the walk over and around the bridge, highly recommend a visit, the Salmon Hatchery was interesting, would love to see the salmon jumping during the season and that waterfall there, what a sight. Grouse mountain well worth the ride in the gondola, the views are exceptional to say the least.

The Rat Pack is Back at the Rio Hotel and Casino

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What a great night this turned out to be. The Rat Pack show was just great, sounded and looked like the real thing. They all stood out in their own right. Joey really started the show off in fine form, and from then on the rest of the pack helped steer the show to a very memorable night. If I had a complaint, it would be that the show was too short.

Las Vegas Super Saver: Romance Package at Madame Tussauds with Gondola Ride and Lunch or Dinner

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We were overwhelmed by the gondola ride although it was a little short. Our gondolier had a great voice and serenaded us with two beautiful songs that really set the atmosphere for my wife. We had a great lunch immediately after that really finalised a memorable event of our trip to Las Vegas. The walk around Madame Tussauds was interesting, but hard to rate after a visit to the one in London. Sharing the gondola was not a problem, it's handy for picture taking.
