Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Delightful Ghent and Bruges! We had enough time in both places. However, it seemed like the guide had a problem purchasing the boat tickets in Bruges for our alloted time. Finally, he announced that it was not his job to purchase the tickets for the group and that those who wanted to buy them could do so on their own. That worked out better anyway. Guide was disinterested and aloof. I wish he wouldnt have smoked on the job. There were other guides leading groups around who were enthused and we looked on in envy! Very little information was offered however, it was offered in several languages. Three stars for the sheer pleasure of being in Bruge and Ghent. I bought books to read through and learn about the places I saw and visited instead of relying on the tour guide.

My Rating

My Review

Excellent fun! The food was delicious and the company our little group formed was charming. Although we deviated from the published itinerary a bit, the guide was superb and it became like having a meal (an excellent) one with friends. Highly recommended.

Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a very small group, just two people which was explained as an atypical occurence. Marc was splendid. Although we started out with a beer at 9 am, it did not go unappreciated. We had a great day! Tasted quite a few different chocolates from outstanding chocolatiers. The schedule for the day was flexible, we enjoyed the relaxed feel of it. The workshop was excellent. Learnt a lot and made sure my friends got to try the pralines I had made in Belgium back home. Sign up, it was all in good taste.

Very very enjoyable. Marc made it fun and informative without making it preachy. Tried quite a few beers covering good variety of selections. I could do this tour all over again.

Brussels Half-Day City Tour

Brussels, Belgium

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

My Review

Guide was a big smoker! He should have been more excited about his job and represented his city in a more passionate way.. I had three tours with the same company over the weekend and had the same guide all three days! It was awful. He barely cared as long as he had a cigarette in his mouth he seemed happy. Really wish I had a better guide. Ended up buying a book on Brussels and reading up as he spoke in several different languages. English was heavily accented, difficult to understand. Sorry, it wasnt fun.

Antwerp Half-Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The guide smoked a lot! The bus had some problems and we had to swap it with another one. Guiding service was poor. The guide lacked enthusiasm. He had a draining effect. Wish I had a better guide who cared about the service his customers were getting and could muster up some good cheer for his own country. Felt he was utterly bored.

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Small group but packed to the max in a mini van. Driver who was also the guide was charming, helpful and concerned for his passengers well-being. The Amalfi coast was beautiful. Just wish we had a few more photo stops as every turn and bend was gorgeous. Keep an eye out for the lemon trees, hard to miss as they are everywhere! Positano is pretty and very picturesque. Enough free time in both Positano and Amalfi - although, given the group size the lunch could have been served a little faster at Positano. Will return.

Capri Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The blue grotto was closed!!! It was disappointing. Wish they had called ahead to find out if it was possible to enter the blue grotto that day. Perhaps, next time. We ended up taking the boat ride - which was good too but the rain made it cold and foggy. The water is a beautiful blue - it is impossible to forget!

Rome Angels and Demons Half-Day Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Good tour. Great introduction to Rome. It was my second time taking this tour and both guides were knowledgeable and made it fun. Recommend a walking tour over a coach tour as Rome deserves to be discovered on foot. See if you can trace back your way on your own once the tour is over. *Smile*
