Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a really nice tour. The temple of Poseidon is spectacular and the journey to it was along the coast so the views were wonderful. Our guide was excellent. She was very informative and obviously loved her job. She not only gave us insights into ancient Greece, but also, in response to questions, talked about the problems Greece is presently experiencing. Another very nice feature was that the tour was not commercialized (unlike many tours there were no stops at shops with pressure to buy something). I was really happy with the tour.

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you want to see some Greek islands but do not have time for a longer cruise this is an excellent alternative. The islands are beautiful and there was ample time on shore to explore the towns. The tour was very well organized. It was impressive how the company managed to pick up and then drop off a boatload of people. The lunch on board (included in the price) was ample and delicious. There were also two sessions of Greek dancing and music. On the way out to the first island, they taught passengers some Greek dances. On the way back there was a more formal demonstration of Greek dances with the dancers in Greek costume. One was really torn between wanting to see and participate in the dances and wanting to see the beautiful scenery!

Delphi Day Trip from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Delphi, of course, is spectacular and the journey there was beautiful. Our guide was very informative. On the bus she gave us an introduction to the importance of Delphi and when we arrived she guided us around the temple complex. We then had free time to explore the site ourselves. After the site we visited the Delphi museum and again she guided us around the museum and focused on explaining some of the most important pieces in the museum. Since the schedule was tight, we did not have free time at the museum. The tour comes with the option of lunch. Perhaps the company could consider letting those who do not opt for lunch stay longer at the museum and pick them up after lunch since the bus passes the museum on the way back to Athens. Otherwise I was very satisfied with the tour. It was well organized and very interesting.

Stockholm Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Stockholm, Sweden

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I had a limited time in Stockholm so this was a very efficient way to see the major sites and get a feel for the city. One can hop off the bus at any of the stops, explore, and then hop back on another bus. For those like me with limited time it was an excellent way to see the city. For those with more time, the tour would be good to take at the beginning of the visit since it gives one an overview after which one can go back and explore places of interest at one's own pace.

Big Island Day Trip: Grand Circle Island from Oahu

Oahu, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a very long, but very worthwhile trip from Honolulu. Not only is the scenery spectacular, but the tour is designed to show the variety of the scenery, from barren lava flows, to active volcanoes, lush forest, waterfalls and lava tubes. We also saw turtles coming ashore at the black sand beach. The trip also gave insights into the economy with stops at a Kona coffee plantation and later at a Macadamia nut cooperative, as well as insights into the importance of cattle ranching The guide was extremely informative about the history,
geology and agriculture of the island.

Oahu Grand Circle Island Day Tour with Dole Plantation

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

If you don't want to rent a car, this day tour gives insights into the diversity of Oahu and was well-designed to show the different landscapes of the island. The guide was very informative. This is a popular tour and on the day I went there were 3 full buses. To avoid crowding at the various stops, the driver/guides had the initiative to slightly change the itinerary schedule so that only one bus would be at a particular stop at a time.

Maui Day Trip: Haleakala, Iao Valley, Old Lahaina from Oahu

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour in a small mini-bus. The scenery is fantastic - from the crater of Haleakala at over 10,000 feet to the lush Iao valley. The driver/guide was excellent. We had plenty of time in Lahaina by ourselves and a big plus was that the guide stopped at an overlook where we could see whales spouting in the channel and the sun setting into the ocean.

Honolulu Airport Roundtrip Transfer with Optional Lei Greeting

Oahu, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

After a long flight it is nice to be picked up and not have to find a taxi. Even though my flight was 4 hours late, I was met as I got off the plane and ushered to the waiting van. Before boarding the van, I was given a voucher for my return to the airport with the pick-up time so I did not have to call the company to confirm the time. This roundtrip transfer was very efficient and reliable.

Teotihuacan Pyramids and Shrine of Guadalupe

Mexico City, Mexico

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The trip is well worth doing. The pyramids are fantastic and the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe was very interesting. Both the guide and driver were extremely courteous, helpful and informative. The trip also stops off in the morning at a silver shop to see a craftsman engraving silver and later at an artisan cooperative to see hand carvings and learn about the many uses of the agave cactus. While it was clearly hoped that people would buy something, there was absolutely no hard sell, and in fact especially the second stop was very interesting in showing the many uses of the agave, from pulque to paper to needles. What was also very nice was that we were a small group, divided into Spanish and English speakers. Instead of taking us around as a whole group, the Spanish speakers went with the driver/guide and the English speakers went with the guide and this worked very well. We had time on our own to climb the pyramids, for example. A really good and interesting trip.

Mexico City Airport Round Trip Transfers

Mexico City, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

After a long flight, it was really nice to have a friendly person waiting to drive me to my hotel. The driver provided a good welcome to Mexico. Both drivers from and to the airport were friendly, helpful and courteous and also very punctual. I was a little worried about my return to the airport since I needed to be picked up at 4 in the morning for my early flight, but, as noted above, the driver was there punctually. Both drivers pointed out places of interest along the way. This is a very reliable service that makes arrival and departure hassle free.

Golden Circle Classic Day Trip from Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Whether you have a lot of time in Iceland or just a little, this is a tour definitely worth doing, if you don't plan to rent a car. The downside is that it is a very popular tour so a lot of people go. That is the only downside. The scenery was spectacular and the tour gave plenty of time at each major site, so much that one could see the geysir erupt at least 8 times (it erupts about every 5 minutes). There was also plenty of time at the spectacular waterfall to enable one (if one decided to forgo lunch) to take the path right down to the waterfall. The guide was very informative. I would probably recommend the Day trip, the one I took, because it allows more time at each site.

Snaefellsjokull, The Glacier and The National Park Tour from Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I thought this tour was fantastic. The scenery is spectacular and one sees a variety of different landscapes from pleasant valleys with sheep, to lava fields, to spectacular cliffs, and the most spectacular of all, the glacier. There were only a few people on this trip so the bus was small. The trip was well designed and the guide was excellent. The tour was also very punctual about hotel pick-up. If you like beautiful scenery, the tour is very worthwhile.

Cape Peninsula Tour from Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent excursion. The tour company provided an excellent guide and driver. What was really nice was that the group was small - 5 people- so we had time to be flexible. The scenery is fantastic and the itinerary, which not only included Cape Point but also an ostrich farm, penguins, seals, not to mention pushy baboons, was varied and interesting.

Aquila Game Reserve Wildlife Safari from Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you don't have time to go to a national park to see animals in the wild, this is the next best thing to do. Our driver to the game reserve was very good and informative. It is just over 2 hours from Cape Town, but the scenery is really pretty and takes you through wine growing areas. On the reserve we saw lots of animals including elephants, rhinos (plus baby), zebras, giraffe etc. The reserve greets one with sparkling wine and breakfast. After the safari, lunch is served - a really fabulous lunch. On the way back we stopped at an ostrich farm and had a tour, which included seeing 3-day old ostriches. I very much enjoyed the excursion and liked the fact that it was a small group.
