Phare: The Cambodian Circus Show in Siem Reap

Siem Reap, Cambodia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great performance and thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend going for the premium seats as you get seated near the front center which is where the the air con/fans direct cool air. Also the extra cost of the ticket vs standard seating is worth it since it's for a good cause and you get a bottle of water and a nice free gift at the end.

Angkor Temples Small-Group Tour

Siem Reap, Cambodia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Good tour- there were only 4 of us (2 x 2 person groups) on the day which was nice, but we chose a very busy Saturday to go so the temples were crowded and slow moving at times which was made worse due to the intense humidity (even though it was "dry/cool" season- November). The guide was informative and spoke good English. The minibus had aircon which was a relief from the heat when moving between temples. Lunch was ok- plentiful choices of dishes in a nice air conditioned restaurant. Enjoyable tour but not for the fainthearted or those who can't function in the outside heat without air con.

Taroko Gorge Full-Day Tour from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Enjoyable trip however too much time was wasted at the super expensive marble factory (no one from the tour group bought anything). More time would have been better spent allowing visitors to explore the gorge and walking trail (since this is what people paid for when selecting this tour, not visiting factories). It was a hot and humid day so the air conditioned bus was a plus. The 3 hour train ride back was too long but overall the door to door service was great.

Great Wall of China at Badaling and Ming Tombs Day Tour from Beijing

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour and guide however I felt that more time would have been preferred at the Great Wall instead of at the Jade and Cloisonne factories where the sales people follow you around and try to sell their goods without any shame (good for those who like shopping). Lunch was only OK- not very tasty.

Beijing Classic Full-Day Tour including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very good tour covering a lot in one day. Our tour guide Jack Li was friendly and very informative. The only downside was lunch which was rather forgetful and bland. One thing to note is that a lot of time is spent in the silk and pearl factories which will please those who like shopping.

Macau Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very well done tour but Macau itself is small and aside from a few sites, there is not much else on offer other than gambling. The time slot allocated for the casino visit was short and unsuitable for those who are under 21 as they cannot enter the casinos.

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was well planned and enjoyable. The driver and guide were helpful and very informative.

The downsides were that actual tours of the castles were shorter than I expected (only 20-35 minute guided slots), plus the tour group was quite large 40+ people.

The trip to the village was in my opinion a waste of time especially since it was raining and there wasn't much to do aside from browse in the shops - I would have preferred more time to walk around the Linderhof grounds instead.

The walk to the Neuschwanstein castle was more like a hike up the mountain (unless you got the bus or horse carriage half the way up).
