Paris Rail Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review
Eiffel Tower was ridiculously crowded, and the tour guide did not have tickets ready when we arrived there. Had only about 70 - 75 minutes for the Louvre Museum, which was not nearly enough time. Notre Dame Cathedral was OK. Did not need 'shopping' time in downtown Paris. River trip on the Seine was OK. Tour guide kept telling us how 'beautiful' things were. I'd rather be able to form my own opinion. His English was only fair, and he seemed relatively uninterested in those he guided. He consistently sat with the hop-on, hop-off bus drivers rather than spend time with the tourists, which seemed strange. He did try to save us money on things, for which I was appreciative.

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Oxford was fantastic. Cotswolds was pretty, and interesting stories shared by guide along the way. In Stratford, Shakespeare's home was interesting and quaint. Had a nice meal there in the little town. Warwick had the best castle I've ever been to! Guide was extremely clearly spoken and educational. He was a pleasure to deal with, and the driver did a heck of a nice job getting us to and fro in the context of increased road congestion related to the London Underground Railway strike.

Leeds Castle Private Viewing, Canterbury and Greenwich Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Leeds Castle was beautiful despite the downpour. Canterbury Cathedral is wondrously impressive in size and design. The town seems nice also, with good inexpensive dining. The stop off at Dover was unnecessary - nothing there worth looking at in my estimation. The Greenwich leg of the trip was rushed and unimpressive. River trip up the Thames was a nice ending. Tour guide did a nice job, as did the bus driver.

Edinburgh Rail Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Very nice overall, but 9 hours on the train was grueling after having flown from NYC to London just the day before. The trip was picturesque. Wish we had more time in and around the castle. Having no guide and being in a foreign land was a little overwhelming and had a bit of an 'Amazing Race' quality until we found the hop on hop off sightseeing bus. Better instructions on what to do after exiting the train would be helpful.
