Skip the Line: Alhambra and Generalife Gardens Half-Day Tour

Granada, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
An excellent tour and guide - good English, good pace and good knowledge. What a beautiful place - but more time should be spent than just half day. There is so much to see both internally and externally. Worth doing.

Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

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

My Review
This was another disappointing tour. The guide spoke bad English and couldn't be heard clearly. Also, everything was in a great rush - like a marathon runner. We missed many places that we were expecting to see, but we stopped at the tourist traps for shopping. And finally the bus broke down and we were all turfed off to find our own way back to our hotels - my friend with a walking stick and limited mobility was just abandoned by the guide without any consideration. Would not use this tour company again.

Barcelona Morning Sightseeing Tour

Barcelona, Spain

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

My Review
Barcelona is beautiful, but this tour company doesn't show you much. We were most disappointed in this tour, taking you to the touristy places, mainly shops, and missing much of the beautiful buildings of Barcelona. At the Spanish Village tour, a most disappointing tourist trap, the guide told us a different return time and had left on the bus before we returned, along with our parcels which we had been told to leave behind. The guides at the Village were most co-operative and helpful in putting us together with our belongings. I wouldn't use this tour company again - we saw more privately than they showed us.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Our French guide was delightful and very knowledgable, The tour through the underground of the Louvre was quite incredible and extremely interesting. Unfortunately, the crowds in the actual Louvre galleries makes the visit to the Louvre a bit disappointing - even at 9am in early June. But, it's a fact of the Museum being the most visited place in France. Really need to spend more time there but this tour is a very good general look.

Versailles Independent Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
There is just so much to see at Versailles - it is absolutely huge - I did the gardens and Trianon this time, having been to the Palace before. My friend did the Palace and was most impressed with the tour, taking the audio guide through the rooms. For me, the gardens and outer buildings were exquisite - a lot of walking in the cold and wind. On a sunny day it would be delightful. Worth doing.

Skip the Line: Van Gogh Museum and Amsterdam Canal Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What a busy city is Amsterdam. The canal ride was an eye opener - seeing the city from the waterline gives a whole new perspective, and on a busy sunny day was quite exciting. The visit to the Museum was outstanding. I'm so glad we took this tour - wouldn't have missed it for anything.

Budapest Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
There is so much to see in Budapest that a half day tour is probably not really long enough, but this one did cover a lot of territory including some stops at the major touristy places. A very beautiful city that was well explained and easily viewed - many beautiful buildings and heritage places visited on the tour. Worthwhile doing for new visitors.
