Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Polynesian show was very enjoyable but the welcome on arrival was poor. We were told we were 20mts too early, our table was not ready and it was suggested we wait in the bar. The cocktail drinks were very expensive ($45 for 2 drinks). We were shown to a very small table a fair distance from the stage. The dinner was fine but the restaurant needs a refurb - particularly the restrooms. The show won awards in 1999 but not since. Quite easy to see why.

Jungle Queen Riverboat Dinner Cruise

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Enjoyable river cruise before sunset. Mansions along the river were amazing with good commentary from the guide. We arrived on the island and had a barbecue dinner in a huge marquee area. The food was tasty, plentiful and great service. We had to sit on very low bench seats for the show outside which entertained the families around us. It was an extremely hot evening that made it uncomfortable to sit outside. The restrooms were very poor and need demolishing and a rebuild.

New York City Airport Private Departure Transfer

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our driver Ali was punctual with our hotel pickup and managed to accommodate all our 7 suitcases and numerous shopping bags in the car boot of his SUV as if such a load was normal. He never complained about the awful rush hour traffic to JFK and entertained us with his CDs, including his self composed music. All in all an excellent reliable driver who made our departure home a bit more bearable.

New York Harbor Hop-on Hop-off Cruise including 9/11 Museum Ticket

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

First the Viator voucher needed to be exchanged at pier 84 for the watertaxi to Battery Park. We arrived at 8.35am for the 9am ferry and queued with several others at the pier ticket office waiting for staff to arrive and open the kiosk. Only then to find we were waiting in the wrong place. Apparently we needed to go into a nearby shop that had a ticket office within giving the right tickets. We very nearly missed the ferry which would have resulted in missing our 10.15am slot for the 9/11 memorial. More specific guidance is clearly required on the Viator voucher. The ferry was fast and comfortable with good narrative on places of interest from the captain. The memorial was so moving in honouring those who died in the twin towers, every name recorded in granite in either the north or south pools. There are information centres for electronic searches giving exact location in the pools of any specific name. A very moving experience.

New York Dinner Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I went to New York to celebrate my 60th birthday with 5 friends. We had the best time on this dinner cruise on this very impressive yacht. The 4 course dinner included fillet mignon, cooked to order. An open bar serving international drinks freely served by very attentive waitors. There was a live band to entertain and plenty of dancing. We loved every minute of it.

Private Horse and Carriage Ride in Central Park

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our scheduled date and time had to be rearranged as the temperature had risen to over 90 degrees which means that by State law the horses cannot work. The ticket office was very helpful in re-arranging for 2 days later and we really enjoyed the evening carriage drive in Central Park. It was a pity our driver wasn't more communicative as his English was fairly limited.

The driver was waiting in the arrivals hall and welcomed us to New York. He helped with our luggage and escorted us to the limousine in the nearby covered car park. It was a beautiful white limmo which really thrilled our party. The driver patiently took photos on each of our 6 cameras before driving us to our hotel. A really exciting, enjoyable experience. Worth every cent !!!!!

Rome's Tiber River Dinner Cruise

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This was a real disappointment. I've taken dinner cruises in Amsterdam, Prague and Budapest and really enjoyed them. This was travelling up and down a short stretch of the river Tiber with really high canal banks blocking any view of places of interest along the way. There was no commentary simply because there was nothing to see. Food was unappetising. Only plus part was the accordion playing singer/musician.

My Review

TheHard Rock cafe had a computer print of vouchers for the date of our booking and our voucher was immediately honoured with the skip the wait line, saving about a one hour queue time. Menu though limited was certainly cheaper than the same menu choice in the normal a la carte menu. Good service and on the whole a good deal.

Vienna City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Vienna, Austria

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

My Review
There are three routes to choose on the hop on hop off bus tours, all starting from the State Opera house in the centre of Vienna. These routes all start on the hour in winter which meant a long wait between buses if you ventured off. The routes covered the ring, all around the centre, the east route taking in the Danube, the Danube Tower and the Viennese equivalent of the London Eye. We weren't tempted to get off. The third route covered Schonbrunn palace and Belvedere Castle, both having Christmas Markets. The English narration on the headphones was clear, timely and informative. An enjoyable experience which would have been improved with more frequent buses.

Schonbrunn Palace Evening: Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We collected our tickets for all 3 parts of the excursion from the orangery 2 hours before it closed (at 4.30pm). The palace grand tour was awesome; the rooms were furbished some 300 years ago but were wonderfully preserved and maintained. The audio handset covering all 35 rooms proved so informative and interesting, everywhere so steeped in history. We then took in the Christmas markets outside in the palace grounds before having wonderful hot chocolate in the tea rooms. The 3 course meal in the restaurant was well served and tasty, good value for money. The evening then led onto the Concert in the Orangery. The most wonderful musicians playing Mozart and Strauss, joined by 2 opera singers and ballet dancers. Truly great performances, only slightly marred by the intense heat in the hall, requiring the external doors to be thrown open in the interval. Overall great value for money.

Vienna Woods and Mayerling Half Day Trip

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A wonderful experience - we were collected from our hotel punctually and driven the short distance to the coach terminus for the start of the tour. Vienna Woods was just beautiful in the snow. Mayerling was interesting, as was the monastery. We had a brief glimpse of Liechtenstein castle before proceeding to the underground caves and boat journey on the lake. A really enjoyable half day excursion.

La Gomera from Tenerife

Tenerife, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We really enjoyed our day trip over to La Gomera from Tenerife. The organisation was excellent with a prompt pick up from our hotel and transfer to the cruise port of Los Cristianos. After a one hour ferry crossing we joined a coach tour from San Sebastian which covered most of the island. The views on the mountains were awesome. The guide was knowledgeable and ensured we had sufficient coach stops for photo opportunities. Lunch was in a local restaurant and very crowded due to several other coach parties. Food was typical Spanish fare but quite basic. Weather was brilliant and we really considered our trip was good value for money.

The gondola trip with the singing gondalier was well organized and very enjoyable. However the dinner afterward was poor quality, located in a very confined open square within a side alleyway. Lots of mosquitoes around, poor menu choice and definitely not worth the cost.
