Small-Group Lisbon Sightseeing Tour with Fado Show and Dinner

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We were picked up from the hotel and taken on a fantistic trip round Lisbon and surrounding area for about 1 1/2 hours, our guide from cooltours was first class and showed a real passion for his city. The Fado show was in the old town in a typical old restaurant with lots of atmosphere, the singers and guitar players were good but the food which were included in the tour price were not up to an acceptable standard and spoiled the over all experience, we would have been much better off if we could have ordered from the a la carte menu.

Sintra and Cascais Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic day tour, our tour guide Maria had trouble with closed motorways and quickly decided to turn the tour around so we started the trip where we should have finished,.
We were a mixed group of 8 but Maria communicted without any trouble in German, English and Brazilian with all of us, her local knowledge and superb driving skills on the narrow mountain roads amazed and intertained us all. The Pena Palace and gardens takes you back in time as it rises through the mist and the visit to Cabo da Roca, eastern most point in Europe, and the former fishing village of Cascais made this an unforgettable tour.

Rome Departure Shuttle Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

had to wait about 1/2 hour in the airport for the driver to turn up but he was very polite and dropped us off right outside the hotel. Well worth the money especially if it's your first time in Rome and you arrive in the evening.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a fantastic tour, everything was a described only better. Our guide was a wee irish girl named Rachel who know absolutely everything there is to know about the vatican, the painters, sct. Peters basilica, the lot, and her friendly and very captivating way of relaying the information filled with anecdotes about both people and places made this a truly unforgetable tour.Tthe size of our group (20) together with the 'radio' type communication made it very easy to walk around and listen without having to be right next to the guide. I would highly recommend it to anybody going to Rome.

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
brilliant day,picked up by driver right outside the apartment then on to pick up another 2 couples before the drive out to Giverny. Driver/Guide very pleasent spoke excellent english and made us all feel at ease. Time in Monet's museum not relevant to the trip would as they didn't show any of his works but it was only 1/2 hour before quick walk to Monet's garden that even in September looked absolutely stunning. After a nice lunch we were on our way to Versailles where we had about 2 hours to see the palace and the amzing gardens. Try to go on a saturday afternoon when the water fountains are set to classical music. If you like us a mad about gardens this day is a must.
