Brussels Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The tour was conducted in 4 languages, making it a little annoying. Apart from that, tour guide did explain many of the interesting facts of the local places. Tour also gave us enough time to enjoy most attractions, including taking pictures with historical buildings and buying chocolates!

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating

My Review
The tour was conducted in 4 languages, making it a little annoying. Tour to Volendam was a little short. Marken was a waste of time. Apart from that, it was a good tour with the guide giving good commentaries.

Versailles Guided Tour with Optional Fountain Show

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
The tour bus took us to the parking lot of Versailles but apparently there was a "misunderstanding" and the whole bus did not get any bypass the line tickets. Since it was winter, tourists going on the "normal" queue got in first before us. Apart from that, we had a great time as the guide took us through some of the histories of the rooms. The only problem is the time, we were only there for 1.5 hours. That only allowed us to go through the rooms in a hurry, 20 minutes on our own to walk around Versailles AND the garden.

Milan Segway Tour

Milan, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Tour was different from the segway tour we took in San Francisco. Was given audio device which was quite good. Tour was short considering we only went to one tourist attraction, Duomo. We then rode segway circling around Duomo shopping areas. I hope the tour company could have added more attractions to the segway tour.

Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
There were two gondolas riding at the same time, going through the local channels. The other gondola had singer, which was quite good considering we could hear it. It'd been better if they took us through some scenic channels though.

Rome, Italy

My Rating

My Review
Meeting point was a bit awkward down the hill from entrance of museum. Tour guide was entertaining and we did skip the long line. Tour was well organised. Guide explained all the important bits before giving us the option to go on our own.

Salzburg Super Saver: Original Sound of Music and Salt Mines Day Trip

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The tour was good, giving us the experience of visiting a real salt mine, but the tour within the mine was slightly unfair for non-english speaking tourists as we had to share the place with local school kids. As a result, we couldn't hear clearly the commentaries within the mine nor spend time reading all the displayed facts.

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
There was no mention about it being a guided tour by public transport. Viator did not publish that the tour included a train ticket price that we could have refunded if we bought the tickets via the local tour company. Apart from that, the tour guide was informative. He also told us what we needed to know. The walk up the hill towards the castle was good exercise. It takes a half hour to walk up the hill if you take your time. We also got to see a lake frozen this time of the year. We were then given tickets to the castle that we could walk through. It was a quiet time of the year, therefore we could take a few more pictures of the exterior of the castle. Unfortunately, no pictures are allowed once inside the castle and only part of the castle was open to the public. Overall, the tour was good if you know what you are paying for.

The tour guide took us by mini-van to the destinations with good commentaries. We enjoyed Heidiland but there was nothing much at Liechtenstein apart from it's small "country".
