Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Although we're not religious, it was interesting to visit Fatima and witness the devout at this culturally important site in Portugal. There is not much else in to see in Fatima, though, so Nazare and Obidos were the highlights of this tour. Nazare was scenic and offered great seafood restaurants with an ocean view. I imagine it's awesome to relax there in the spring or summer, but it was quite cold and rainy when we visited in late December. Obidos is great to visit during the holiday season and has lots of quaint little windy cobblestone streets. There's plenty of little shops and cafes serving Ginja in edible chocolate cups, which is pretty decent.

London Shared Departure Transfer: Hotel to Airport

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our transfer vehicle arrived at our hotel exactly on time, and we were ready, waiting in the lobby. We were the second-to-last pickup before the airport, so we were right on schedule. However, the last person scheduled for pickup wasn't ready when our shuttle arrived, so we had to wait in the van for him and lost about 15-20 minutes. Our driver ensured that we all arrived at Heathrow on time, but he did this by driving well above the posted speed limit and weaving in and out of lanes. I would have preferred safety over punctuality.

Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Dover

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour. These points of interest are relatively close by, so there wasn't too much time in the bus. The time allowed in Leeds and Canterbury was adequate, so we had plenty of time to explore on our own. The visit to Dover, however, was a bit rushed. This wasn't such a big deal since only a small portion of the cliffs can be seen from the shore.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour is a fantastic way of seeing three must-see locations in England. We loved that the visit to Windsor Castle was self-guided, allowing us to visit the areas that most interested us (there is not enough time to see the castle in its entirety). We were a little disappointed to learn that the changing of the guards does not take place in August (something the tour description should mention). The Roman Baths were amazing, as was the town itself. Because we had already visited Stonehenge the previous day (long story), we decided to depart the tour so we could explore more of Bath. We spent an extra three hours or so touring Bath Abbey, visiting the bridge, walking along the river, and eating dinner at a lovely restaurant. It was effortless to walk 5 minutes to the Bath Spa train station and take the train back into London that night (London Padington Station).

5-Day Devon and Cornwall Small-Group Tour from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you want to make sure you see more of England than just London, I highly recommend this tour. This is a small-group tour that is, aside from the bus rides, almost entirely self-guided. This type of tour is perfect for travelers (like us) who like to wander and explore independently. Our tour guide (Peter) was full of information about England in general, as well as the specific areas we were visiting. He was very talkative and funny, so that made some of the long drives go faster. The Devon and Cornwall regions are absolutely amazing, and this trip offers the perfect combination of English countryside and coastline.

London St Pancras Eurostar Private Arrival Transfer

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an ideal way to transfer from St Pancras to our hotel in Westminster. Our driver was punctual and courteous. It seems a bit pricey but no more than the taxis, and it was certainly convenient to have our transportation prepaid and prearranged.

Antwerp Half-Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Antwerp is a beautiful, clean city in Flanders that is definitely worth seeing. Views of the harbor and city from the museum's roof are impressive. This excursion offers the right mix of guided tour and independent sightseeing, with enough time to enjoy a stroll and a snack in the city center.

Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Bruges is a fairytale-like city that is definitely worth seeing. Ghent is less impressive but still a worthwhile stop. The tour is divided accordingly, spending much more time in Bruges. This tour could be improved by allowing more free time in Bruges and not centralizing the day's itinerary around the (optional) boat tour.

Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very nice tour in the countryside. It was lovely to see some of the Netherlands outside of Amsterdam. The windmills were the highlight of this tour (we visited the working peanut oil mill and loved it). The ferry ride was nice, as was Volendam. That said, there is nothing to see in Marken, and we could have done without the shoe factory.

Mont Saint Michel Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The description of this tour is not representative of the actual experience. Specifically, the claim that you will "enjoy the spectacle of the sea rushing in to surround Mont Saint Michel at high tide" is misleading, since this tour takes you to the island during low tide and has to leave before high tide, which takes six hours to recede. Had I not had the anticipation of witnessing such a spectacular scene, I may not have been as disapointed.
