London, United Kingdom
We only had one day in London but were able to ride on the Yellow and Red routes. We also utilized the transfer route from St Pancras Station to Marble Arch. Everything worked extremely well. Staff at Marble Arch were excellent as was the young guide on the Yellow Route which was redirected because of a riot in Downing Street. He kept us informed all the way on what was occurring and all in all, it was a great day out in London.
We were picked up exactly on time in the hotel lobby by our Italian driver Max who was a funny, informative fellow who fortunately knew Paris well and due to a riot in the centre of Paris was able to get us around and out of the city with the minimum of fuss. The whole tour was wonderful. We had about 2 hours at Giverny which for our level of fitness was just enough. The gardens were beautiful, full of late spring flowers and perfumes from the wisteria. I'd go again tomorrow if I could.
The tour of Singapore including High Tea at Raffles and the bumboat cruise was great. It included a tour of the Selangor Pewter factory and showroom as well. The high tea was everything we expected and more and the bumboat ride is well worth doing as it shows a totally different aspect of the city. Singapore is probably the cleanest city that I've visited so far and I'm sure that anyone who takes this trip won't be disappointed.
I really enjoyed the tour of Darwin. The guide was extremely well versed and was able to answer any questions we had and toured all over the city from the shopping precincts to the harbour to the museum and then the botanical gardens. The pick-up from the hotel was exactly on time. My only disappointment was that the Museum and Art Gallery did not have any exhibits about Darwin during the 2nd World War. That is at a separate museum which unfortunately I didn't have time to visit. Overall, a very well conducted tour.
