Paris Shuttle Departure Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I'm glad you asked because I was going to contact you. I was taking an international flight from Paris DeGaulle to the US. You recommended the shuttle arrive 3 hours early. The problem was the first hour was going around picking up more passengers. I got to the airport only 2 hours ahead of time. After all the lines at Charles De Gaulle, I had to run to catch the plane. All the other passengers were on the plane. I'd recommend that if the flight is in the middle of the day mine was at 150, you pick up 4 hours in advance. I loved the service, the driver was right on time and very polite.

Small-Group French Cooking Class in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I loved this. The chef chose what he was going to make from what was fresh at the market. He explained how to know if fruits and vegetables are fresh in the market. We made simple dishes that are easily replicated at home but are impressive and delicious. He then sent us through email all of the recipes we made.

Paris Walking Tour: Secret Sites and Hidden Gems

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful tour. I had been the only person signed up, but the tour still continued. I had a lovely French woman who took me to many areas of Paris that I had never been to in my many visits. We stopped by for the famous macaron and sat in a cheese shop and had a cheese sampling as French came in to make their Sunday purchases. I returned to the many places to re-experience them on my own and it was just as wonderful.

The driver arrived 5 minutes earlier than given and arrived quickly to the airport, but this made me extremely happy because the last time I used a different service I had to run through the airport and almost missed my flight. They are definitely worth it.

Prague Night Tour and River Vltava Dinner Cruise

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We met our guide and then we were driven to the cruise boat. The guide took us outside and explained the buildings. We then sat down to eat and had an adequate buffet. The guide explained different buildings and we went out again to look out at the city. He took each person right to their hotel though it wasn't in the program.

Budapest by night is magnificent. Our guide walked us from our meeting point to the ship and stopped along the way giving interesting anecdotes. She left us at the ship and we were on our own to get on the night cruise.

My Review

Lake Como is incredibly beautiful and the ride on the boat for 2 hours is breathtaking. The earphone set did not work well on the boat so I missed most of the explanations.

This is a great way to get your bearings in a city. I do it in every location they have one. You also get to know the history of the city that you miss when you walk around on your own.

Skip the Line: Small-Group Milan Walking Tour with da Vinci's 'The Last Supper' Tickets

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an incredible tour. The guide was wonderful, answering all questions and constantly asking if we had any needs or questions. I did go on a Sunday and she took us into the Duomo. This is the best way to get into the Last Supper, because I saw many people who couldn't get in on their own because of the limited, timed tickets.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The tour guide droned on in Italian, Spanish, French, English and German. I speak 4 of the 5 languages and often didn't understand what she was saying. In Murano the boat pulls up to one glass blowing shop in which you were supposed to watch the glass blower for 5 minutes, shop for 10 minutes in only that shop and get back on the boat all within 30 minutes. The same thing happened in Burano though we did have 45 minutes there. There was nothing to see in Torcello. I would have enjoyed walking more in the first 2 places to see the many colored houses and visited shops that were not so planned.

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The first part with the walk around the city and skipping the line into St. Mark's, but what was awesome was the boat ride for one hour. We were in a private taxi/boat with 6 other people. A guide spoke about the buildings and history of the city. I got to stand up and stick my head out the back and take great pictures all along the way.

My Review

I liked skipping the line and at both places I had very knowledgable guides. However in Uffizi you enter so late that the museum closes within a half hour of when the guide finishes with the highlights. I would like to have seen more on my own.

Versailles Small-Group Tour from Paris with Audio Guide

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I had been to Versailles before on my own. This is the only way to go! I was picked up at the hotel on time and had a very knowledgeable guide, Agnes, who escorted us right in and explained so much that I had never seen before. We also went to an Marie Antoinette's hamlet that I had never visited before. We had an incredible lunch at Versailles. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the site.
