Valldemossa and La Granja

Majorca, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I would have given this a 5 star; except for the fax number given and not a phone number given to contact Hotelbeds. Viator was great on making the recomfirmation for us and finding out where was our pickup point and time and for that alone they get a 5 star (and getting back to us). It was a hairy two days though. Hotelbeds itself gets a minus 1 -- even went on their website and no response.

The trip itself was wonderful! Valldemossa is where Chopin (composer) and George Sands (female writer) spent two winters together. Learned a lot about their lives, the lives of others and was treated to a lovely concert. Amazing village!

La Granja is also great! You get to walk through at your own pace and see what Majorcian life was like at the turn of the century. If you want, you can sample various foods.

We also had an unexpected visit to a glass factory. Yes, we've all been there; but this was no pressure to buy at all. The demostration was like nothing I've ever seen before. The blower makes in minutes a wonderful blown glass figure. Unbelieveable!

Day Trip to Lausanne, Montreux and Château de Chillon

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a fantastic tour. Kim was our guide and she was just fantastic! Actually the tour was better than I expected. Kim knew when to talk and when to let us absorb the sights and her information. I would highly recommended this tour. The castle was fantastic too, even though there isn't a ghost there.

Tour/Activity

Chamonix and Mont Blanc

Geneva, Switzerland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
If you can skip the lunch, do so. Otherwise, Chamonix and Mont Blanc tour is worth doing. Our guide was okay. He was good getting our tickets and our money back since lunch had to be cancelled due to the amount of people it would be impossible. That was great! Skip the train too and spend more time on Mont Blanc.
