Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond Small Group Day Trip from Edinburgh

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My Wife and I went on this Trip on 17/6/2014. The Tour around Stirling Castle [entrance fee not included] was done at your own pace [on your own] and we got 2 Hours to see it. If you wanted to, their was a guided Tour every 15 mins for about 50 mins by one of the castle tour guides [free of charge], then you had about an hour on your own to wander around the Castle [that's what we did, very informative].
A lot of historical facts and visual artifacts around the Castle to get to know the Scottish history of this region.
We then went onto Loch Lomond, stopping on route for lunch [not included] at a Trossachs village. The views from Loch Lomond were outstanding and we climbed a small hill to get even better views.
We made a few un-scheduled stops to take photos of a historical building and bridge. The Tour Guide [James] was an Historical Dictionary of Scottish History with antidotes,songs and Jokes all with a Wicked sense of humour, he made the tour for us all.
I would highly recommend this Tour, it is a full 9 Hour Tour but the time flys by.

Thai Burma Death Railway Bridge on the River Kwai Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour was a long day, in total 13 hours! This was mainly for pick up from various hotels then dropped off at the main coach on the outskirts of Bangkok, then the same repeated [in reverse], coming back.
We also ,after seeing the Bridge,made a long detour north, supposedly for the included Lunch,but in fact it was to pick up tourists as well, who had stayed in the Jungle overnight and dropped off by a previous coach party!
This in total made the day long and tiring and instead of the 10 Hours stated, it took 13 Hours!
Putting this aside, seeing the Bridge,Cemetery,Train Ride and Boat Ride was a Great Experience and we wouldn't have missed it for the world!
That's why we have given this Tour 4 Stars!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The boat had booths which were for 4 people but they had it that if you were a couple, you had the booth to yourselves.Each booth had a central table with a bottle of red and white wine, orange juice,water, plus a platter of cheese and a variety of nuts.
The cruise was good and the Guide was very informative and very funny.The walk around the Red-Light District was an eye opener in both sense's of the word.
My Wife and i thouroghly enjoyed it, where we saw 360 Degrees around the dam on the Canels.

Mostar Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
a full 11 hours tour with stop on the way and on the return, this was needed for toilet break, if for nothing else. the town of Mostar was very hot so take sun-cream and water. it was a lovely town with places to visit as well as cobbled streets of the old town with numerous shops and restaurants. prices here were cheaper than our stay in Croatia. would recommend this tour to see another country around this old Yugoslavia!

My Review
this tour was a full 12 hours but it went quickly. first we went up the mountain roads to the top of a 1200metre mountain,this was worth the money on its own,you have to experience it for yourselves. then onto Kotor a smaller town within a walled perimeter then after that onto Budva a seaside town with also a walled perimeter. on the way back we went across a large lake on a Ferry and with a toilet stop to and from Budva , it was an enjoyable day!

Cu Chi Tunnels Small Group Adventure Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We drove to Cu Chi pronounced Gucci, like the handbags! Then went on a tour of the surrounding area, then viewing the tunnels. We went in one of the enlarged tunnels but it was still atmospheric, dark, hot and could be claustrophobic to certain people. We enjoyed it but we had to duck out before the end due to the heat. You were asked by the guide in the tunnels at regular intervals if you were ok and you had the opportunity to get out. When you are down there, you are bending over doubled up and if its hot outside it could effect how long you are down there.

Mekong Delta Discovery Small Group Adventure Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We had a good guide who spoke english well and had information about our surroundings all the time. We went on a junk first then walked on one of the islands of the Mekong River, visiting various local activities then had lunch at one of the local cafes this was included. We then got into a narrow boat with one woman at the front and one woman at the back paddling down a narrow part of the river. This was within the forestry area so you would have to spray yourself with insect repellant. It wasnt a big deal though!

Halong Bay Small Group Adventure Tour including Cruise from Hanoi

Hanoi, Vietnam

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We were picked up promptly from our hotel and driven approx. 3 hours to Halong Bay with a stop half way, going and coming back. The guide spoke excellent english and had a good sense of humour. She took us onto our junk which we had to ourselves and for the next 3 hours we sailed around the islands. We also had lunch on-board which was included and it was cooked fresh and dish after dish kept coming to the table. We were full afterwards and enjoyed the scenery for the rest of the cruise.
