Helsinki Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour

Helsinki, Finland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour was very good. Since we were doing this tour from a cruise ship, it was convenient. The bus was at the port, the representative escorted us to the bus and we boarded. The tour gave you an overview of the entire city in a short period of time. It's a very beautiful city even on a cloudy, rainy day. After the tour we walked around and when we were ready to leave the bus was there and took us back to the ship. A perfect way to see everything, and it was much easier considering the weather.

Copenhagen City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Copenhagen, Denmark

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Copenhagen is a very large city and the HOHO bus was a great choice. We did have some problem finding the bus stop and waited at the wrong stop for over 25 minutes, finally walking and finding the correct stop. The main stop is across from Tivoli Gardens and although we waited across from Tivoli it was on the wrong side of the building, and it did say HOHO bus it was the other company. We enjoyed seeing the city on the red and green lines.

Copenhagen Canal Tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We did this tour the day we arrived in the city. It was a short walk to the canal and the tour was really nice. The tour guide even sang when we went under a bridge. I preferred seeing the tour on the canal over the HOHO bus. We got very close to the Royal Yacht which was parked in the canal. Again alot to see in very comfortable surroundings.

Circle Line: NYC Liberty Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent way to view the entire city for you are only in NYC for a short visit. Guide was informative and the cruise was enjoyable. line up about 1/2 hour before scheduled cruise and are allowed to board then. Top deck fills in first and is best way to view everything. Only thing I thought was rude was the cruise director did say he would be at the boat exit if anyone wanted to show him any appreciation for the job he did. I did not see anyone give him anything when we left. My motto is don't ask for a tip.

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were told on the day we had originally planned to go that the visibility was only at 30% and it was suggested to come back another day. We went back the next day and visibility was 50%. We went anyway because we didn't have another day to go since we were leaving the next day. It was great--not crowded and the views fantastic. There were some clouds in the far distance but we saw everything we wanted to see. Best of all excellent views of the Empire State Building. Worth the money for such a great view. Whole tour maybe 1/2 hour to 3/4 hour, depends on how long you want to stay up there.

Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Tour to Toledo was interesting. Tour guide Anna was terrible. Mostly English speaking people on tour, maybe 6 or 8 Spanish speaking. Her first information in Spanish, went on for ever, then her translation in English was about 2 or 3 sentences. She spoke very softly, did not carry a microphone, and when I told her we couldn't hear in the back, she shrugged her shoulder. It was hard to follow her around because all she held in the air were her sunglasses. Other tour guides had headsets and something to lead the crowd around. The sites were beautiful, but don't go if Anna is your guide.

Best way to see a city without walking. Did both tours, although the one to the new section is something you could miss and not worry about. Madrid is a lovely city with beautiful architecture.

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My husband and I went on the Best of Tuscany tour with our guide Agata. She was great--with a very friendly personality and great knowledge of the places we were to visit. She kept it organized and shared her information with us (like the best gelato store in our stops). We had ample time in all the areas on our own to walk and admire the sights. The highlight was the organic farm and lunch. It was outstanding. The staff at the farm was attentive and very helpful if you decided to make a purchase. This tour is a must if you are traveling without a car in Italy. You get to see these wonderful areas that you would never get to see in one day on your own. It sounds like a very long day, but it goes by quickly and is great fun.

We enjoyed seeing all the highlights of Paris. It gave us a chance to pick which ones we wanted to explore on our own.
