Boston Freedom Trail Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great snapshot of Boston following the Freedom Train. Free time over lunch was great to explore the market and surrounding areas. Harvard university was interesting to explore, however, we did learn more about Harvard from another tour guide from a different company as our tour guide left us for "free time".

Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Air

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic Tour of Niagara Falls, especially if you only have limited time in New York and would like to see the falls in one day.

Tour leaves very early and arrives back to New York late, however, you have time on the flight to up-state New York to rest and take in a nap.

Drivers take you to the airport and the tour guide meets you at the end of your flight in the airport. Tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.

I went off season so no maid of the mist boat ride, however, the alternate viewing is acceptable. In winter you have the added views of the snow and ice which make the views breathtaking.

Value for money and well worth doing this tour in a day trip.

This was a great tour of testing the food Brooklyn has to offer.. would easily do this tour again. The tour guide was fantastic and full of energy.

Philadelphia and Amish Country Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was fantastic, loved the tour of Phiadelphia and then onto Amish Country to a conservative town called "Intercorse" (no joke).

This history in Philadelphia was very interesting and meeting Amish people and see how they live was also very interesting.

The tour itself was fantastic, the places, people, history all amazing. On the tour bus, the two people whom were closest to the tour guide where of the same nationality as the tour guide.

The tour gudie spent the whole trip (almost every minute) talking to these two ladies in their own language. It would have been nice if he talked to us all evenly, especially when you could see that he was pointing out places of interest to the couple but not relaying in english.

The tour is a fantasitc tour so I would highly recomend the tour (just not this particular guide).

New York Lights Night Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a great tour which includes a boat ride around lower Manhattan. The tour guide (on the bus and boats) are full of experiences to guide you through NY.

If its your first time in New York City or your travelling with someone that has never been to NYC, then you should definitely take this tour on your first night in the city.

Washington DC Night Tour

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The tour guide was BAD... The bus did not have a microphone, so the tour guide spoke from the front of the bus and he could not be heard from the back of the bus. He knew hardly anything about the city, announcing buildings when clearly looking at the sign on the building. A number of people left the tour before it concluded.

Disney's 4-Day Magic Your Way Ticket

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was excellent value compared to buying at the Theme Parks.

Four Days allowed us to spend a day at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood studios and gave us a forth day which we went back to Hollywood Studios.

There are other parks to visit if they interest you such as Animal Kingdom and the water parks.

In September one day at each theme park is enough to see and do everything, however, during summer add an extra day at most places. We only had to use the Fast Pass once which allows you to return to a ride and get priority entry during a specific time.

To enhance your experience, make sure you stay at one of the hotels inside Walt Disney World Resort. They have free shuttle buses and access to parks earlier than the general public.

Universal Orlando Tickets

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Buying this through Viator is excellent Value for money instead of buying at the theme park. It is also really easy to change your voucher for a ticket at the theme park.

Buying this ticket and organising transport through your hotel is a lot cheaper than booking this through a regular tour guide company.

In September one day to visit Universal and Universal's Island adventure them parks is plenty of time. Get there prior to / at opening and expect to stay well into the night as Universal City Walk (outside the parks) has plenty to offer as well.

In summer perhaps allow two days or pre-purchase an express pass through the theme parks website prior to arriving. This pass gives you access to a priority line in most rides and can be purchased separately.

Kennedy Space Center and Everglades Airboat Safari from Orlando

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is an excellent day tour to escape the theme parks and experience the greater area.

The Everglades Airboat Safari is well worth it, cruising through the Everglades and coming across quite a few alligators.

Then off to the Kennedy Space Centre which includes a tour of the site, best to do this first as it takes about 2 hours. This was very interesting as you get up close to Launch Control where the Shuttle Launches took place.

A lot of history here and an interesting afternoon and the launch simulator gives you the feeling of a shuttle take off.

A great day out!

Washington DC Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I did this tour to give a friend I was travelling with a taste of DC without staying in DC. The tour guide was great and the locations were great to give you a taste of DC and the monuments.

The four hour bus ride from New York (each way) is very long.

Viator offers a similiar tour via train from New York which would involve less travel time than bus.

The day tour is a great way to experience Washington DC in a day especially if you have limited time.

If you have time, maybe spend at least one night in DC, take a day tour on one day and explore the museum's on the second day.

Viator has day tours from New York to DC or tours if you are in DC already.

Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas

My Rating

My Review

This is a great tour which includes a tour inside the Dam. You have enough time to do the tour and explore the area.

The Chocolate factory is very interesting, however it would have been great to be given a little extra time in their gift shop.

The Chocolate Factory Gift Shop is very large with so many different chocolates to choose from. The Classic Pecan Brittle is amazing!!

Circle Line: Complete Manhattan Island Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was my second trip to New York in six months so I was more than happy to spend thre three hours on the cruise that travelled around the entire island.

Great views and the captain was very knowledgable. You really see the whole of Manhattan from the rivers.. More than you would see by staying in Times Square.

In a busy city it was also good to just stop for a couple of hours and relax and take some photo's of the city skyline.

My last visit to New York (and my first) was in August 2010 for 1 week, which was very tight so did not do this in August. However, well worth it during an extended stay in New York.

My Review
This is a great tour if you only have a limited time in DC. You get taken to all the major monuments including white house, capitol building etc. It also alows you to find yourself in DC in the event you want to revisit any of the monumnet's areas of DC. Tour was easy to find and left on time. Enough time was spent at each location and you had the flexibility to follow the guide or walk around at your leisure.

Kakadu, Nourlangie and Yellow Waters Tour with Optional Flight over Kakadu

Darwin, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was excellent and well worth it. Kakadu is too big to do by yourself and the amenities and staff were exceptional. The tour guide made sure we were well hydrated and full of local knowledge. The flight over Arnhem land although an additional cost is a must. The flight was magical seeing more of the land than possible from the ground. Every seat in the plane has a window and the captain was very knowledgeable. Yellow waters cruise was nice and relaxing and a great way to come up close to the crocodiles in the water. The Buffet lunch was very filling and plenty of time to relax before moving onto the next location. Ending the day at Window on the Wetlands with wine tasting was a nice way to end the day. The tour operator was one of the best in Darwin.
