Dunedin Shore Excursion: Taieri Gorge Railway Tour and City Sightseeing

Dunedin, New Zealand

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

My Review

The weather was against us sadly but the scenery was spectacular. However the itinerary changed a week before we did the tour - the train trip part was extended by an hour each way and therefore there was only time for quick bus trip to see the sights of Dunedin. We were told that because it was Friday (not sure why) the train trip went all the way to Middlemarch which was VERY quiet -m nothing to see and only one pub and one café for a meal/drink. I would have preferred the short train journey. The tour guide on the train though was great - very informative.

Tauranga Shore Excursion: Rotorua Highlights

Tauranga, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great tour-one of our favourites. The weather was very wet sadly but the driver Graeme made it all worthwhile. Not only was he very informative and local traditions, landscape and just life in general, ne was happy to take questions, but it was obvious he enjoyed his job. The venue was lunch was quaint and if it had been sunny it would have been very pretty spot. The kiwi farm was really interesting too and the shop there had lots of products to choose from. The visit to the maori village and springs and show was fantastic - really enjoyable hearing about their way of life and listening to their singing.

Bay of Islands Shore Excursion: Sightseeing Cruise and Kerikeri Tour

Paihia or Russell, Bay of Islands, New Zealand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Really top tour! The start time was changed when we arrived but that just gave us more time in the quaint village and a vist to the local markets. The big plus on this tour was the visit to Ake Ake winery - stunning wines and the owner was a joy to listen to. The visit to the chocolate shop was a waste of time - too short and they only offered us two small pieces to taste. The boat ride was fab and the guide on the boat was very good. A very pretty spot at KeriKeri and the gardens were gorgeous.

What a lovely day this was! Tracey our guide was an absolute treasure - very happy to share her stories and answer any questions and funny too! The scenery here was amazing. The lunch was in a lovely spot and really enjoyed each of the wineries where the tastings were very generous. Now a big fan of proper ginger beer! Particularly liked the visit to the olive oil farm.

Very worthwhile doing and good value for money. Easy to find and would have liked to have done a second day of it so we could have got off at more stops. The down side was that the Maori Cultural show at the Museum was $45 each!! Certainly too expensive!

Singapore Jurong Bird Park Tour

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was very good. Our guide Eliza was excellent - happy to answer any questions and well organised and very very knowledgeable about singapore history and life. The bird park was wonderful - we really enjoyed the lorikeet section. Would have liked a little more time so we could see more of the other types of birds. I think the tour could easily be extended by an hour and no really matter but that way you could get to see all the enclosures.

Singapore Night Safari with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Eliza was excellent - very well organised and informative. The buffet dinner was particularly good although we had to rush a little to make sure we didnt miss any of the other attractions. The trolley cart ride around the zoo was good but could have gone a little more slowly so we could really appreciate all the different animals in their surrounds. The lighting at each pt was very impressive - seemed like moonlight. We did the fish spa - amazing results - better than any pedicure! LOLThe fire show as pretty ordinary.

Phuket Fantasea Show and Dinner

Phuket, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The show was amazing especially the aerial acrobatics. I was very impressed on how well organised it all was with the large volume of people attending. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The buffet meal was a little ordinary though and there was too much time to kill between arriving at the venue and the start of the show. If doing again I would recommend just attending for the show.
