Naples Shore Excursion: Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, departing promptly from the port at Naples and meeting our guide at Pompeii. Andrea was very knowledgeable and his commentary of the site was both informative and amusing. After a pizza lunch we travelled to Mt Vesuvius, a journey of 45 minutes,during which the weather took a turn for the worse and on arrival at Mt Vesuvius a storm was imminent and therefore for safety reasons access to the mountain was closed, disappointing but unavoidable. Good value for money excursion.

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: City Walls Walking Tour

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a thoroughly enjoyable day in Dubrovnik, starting with a walking tour of the city, followed by a tour of the walls in the afternoon. Our guide, Ana, was excellent, pointing out so many places of interest and explaining the history of the area including the more recent conflict. She is very knowledgeable and organised the tour very well on what was a crowded and hot day. Excellent value for money.

Juneau Shore Excursion: Mendenhall Glacier, Whale-Watching Cruise and City Tour

Juneau, Alaska

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

When we booked this excursion we were under the impression that it would follow the itinerary as advertised. This was not our experience. We initially had the short city tour and were then taken to the Medenhall glacier where we were told that we would be collected from there in about 30 minutes to join a whale watching ship. We had anticipated that, as advertised, this part of the excursion would take place after the whale watching cruise, thereby allowing us time to explore the glacier area and then make our own way back at our leisure to the cruise ship. After spending such a short time at the glacier we made our way to the pick-up point where we spent the next 45 minutes waiting for the bus; the organisers had forgotten we were there and had to send a special driver to collect us. This was chaotic and spoilt our time at the glacier as we were unable to walk the trails there due to lack of time.

The whale watching cruise was superb with a very informative and enthusiastic crew.
Overall, we enjoyed our day in Juneau but this excursion should follow the advertised programme and it needs much better communication with the organisers of each segment of the tour.

New York Arrival Shuttle Transfer: Airport to Hotel

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
After a 5 hour delay from London Heathrow on Boxing Day as a result of the terrorist activity over Detroit, we arrived at JFK quite exhausted. We were so glad that we had decided to pre-book the airport to hotel shuttle, even more as the weather was appalling. Ten minutes after using the freephone in the Baggage Hall the shuttle bus arrived and took us to our hotel in Manhattan, a smooth operation in both directions!
