4-Day Classical Greece Tour: Epidaurus, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great trip for seeing the ruins around Greece. It is pretty fully on with long days. You never seem to get enough time at the sites - but that is probably a sign that you enjoy them. All hotels were excellent, comfortable transport and good guide. We had multiply languages on our tour which did seem to cost us time at the sites. Pick-up and drop-off fine. Only tips - maybe not every lunch was required. We don't really eat lunch (which are offered everyday)and the costs do add up. Be prepared for some reasonable walking (uphill and cobblestones)

3-Night Santorini Tour from Athens

My Review

Great trip. Everything went like clockwork. Picked up in Athens - Armiea Hotel by taxi - taken directedly to fast catamaran - 4 or so hours later in Santorini - met by someone at Port - taken by bus to Hotel Lucas. Included full day trip to volacano. Okay - Hotel was clean and very central at Fira. The views were the best ever - right outside our door we overlooked all the cruise ships. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance - however be prepared for heaps of stairs. We took an optional all day tour of around the island. If you take this you really need to get to the top of the island of the first day to see the sunset at Ora - otherwise it is hard to find time to get there. Pool at the hotel is fine - breakfast is a nice little starter. There is a supermarket and ATMs all close by plus (for Aussies) even a hotel that shows NRL and AFL games. Tips: When doing volcano tour you need good shoes and water - it's hard and hot. Same day the swim at thermal pool will stain any white clothing. Tips: Wine is very reasonable and good at Santorini Winery. Tips: The Fast Ferry still takes a while so be prepared for reading etc. Final tip: Your time will disappear fast at Santorini. Take advantage of great photo ops. Have a swim, dress up, have some wine and take some brillant photos at sunset. I'm sure they will make your new desktop screensaver.

My Review
Great day out. Operator picked us up from our hotel on time. There is alot to see and time quickly gets away on you. We ran out of time to see Imax films. Tips: Be on left hand side of bus when touring NASA complex. Better pictures. Take some snacks with you as food is on the high price side. Can buy water from bus driver for $1 (a bargain compared to inside). Alot of walking involved ... but worth it

New York City Guided Sightseeing Tour by Luxury Coach

My Review
A good introduction to New York. You get a feel for the place. Spent a bit of time around Ground Zero area but it was so crowded that we decided to come back. Also got a look at Harlem and decided it wasn't worth another look - so you can use this tour to work out where you need to spend more time. Tip: the tour finishes at Top of the Rock (you get dropped off there) - so plan for that. We stayed quite a while there - its great. The supplied lunch was just okay - but rushed. Brush up on your skills of taking photos through a window of a moving bus - you will need them.

New York City Explorer Pass

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We got a 7 trip card. You need to do some research on where to use the card - example for tours you have to present the card at one location and do the tour at a second location. I found the tours the best value. NY at night, Movie Sights Tour. Madame's was better than I thought. Empire State - you just present card at counter. The Explorer Pass certainly helps you budget as you don't have to find the money when you are there. Only tip I have is to pick it up at NBC studio BEFORE you purchase any souvenirs (as there is a discount in the booklet for NBC Studio).

Ready for the ride of you life. We had no problem finding and getting on to the shuttle. The trip matches any ride you find in a theme park. What an introduction to New York. Beeping, changing lanes in a second, hitting every pothole, running lights - you get the full experience. But at the end of the day you want to get from the airport to you hotel and thats exactly what you get. The calming drinks at the bar help but hey - its New York - its fast and furious.
