Girona, Figueres and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a great day trip from Barcelona. I think some more time in Girona is needed, or the guide their needs to cut down her history lesson to just the key points. The Dali Museum is amazing!

Discover Potsdam Walking Tour

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour is great for getting a feel for Potsdam itself and the palace area. The tour does not provide entry into any of the palaces - if you want to do that, you have to stay on and make your own way back to Berlin by train. We did that and thought it worthwhile. Matti our guide was great.

Dutch Villages and Countryside Bike Tour from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great bike ride to the north of the city through farmland and villages dating back to the 1300s. Our guide, Inge, was very knowledgeable and friendly We very much enjoyed getting out of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for a few hours. And, the short ferry ride from Centraal across the Amstel was an experience.

Bruges Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

My Review

Bruges is an interesting place to visit and I would recommend doing so if you can fit it into your itinerary. It's a great place to photograph! However, we found this tour to be quite disorganised and confusing (especially at the beginning when splitting groups onto separate buses). The bus trip is 3 hours each way which does not provide you with a decent amount of time to walk around Bruges and appreciate it. I would recommend that you catch an early train from Amsterdam yourself and do your own thing for the day or, an overnight stay in Bruges would be much better.

Yosemite National Park Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Yosemite NP is absolutely stunning, a must see. An exrta hour or two there would have been good though, even if it meant getting back to San Fran late at night. If you have time do the overnight trip.

Monterey, Carmel and 17-Mile Drive Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a relaxing day trip but I felt we spent more time in the van than outside seeing things. More time in Carmel would have been better than Monterey. Both are beautiful towns though.

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating

This is a great way to get a feel for the city and see a lot of the major sites quickly. It is also fairly safe and very well organised. You get to have lunch on the beach towards the end of the tour also.

Tarragona and Sitges Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It was just me, one other tourist and our guide, Wania, who drove us in a small car. Tarragona is a stunning little port town with old Roman ruins. It was great to have lunch by the beach at Sitges and get some sun. Wania gave us a lot of free time in both places. I highly enjoyed the day. I guess your level of enjoyment on this tour would be very dependent on good weather though.

Barcelona Airport Arrival Shuttle Transfer

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
When I arrived at Barcelona on a Saturday morning, the shopfront for the shuttle service was closed! I had to call a number to arrange the service and then had to wait for almost an hour before they turned up. Shambolic and a complete waste of money. You'd be better off catching the Airbus or the metro to your destination. They are both easy to use and much cheaper.

Skip the Line: Alhambra Tour and Granada Hammam

Granada, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
The Alhambra is definitely worth seeing. If you also arrange for the Turkish bath massage, be aware that it isn't until early evening so there's about 4hrs between the Alhambra tour and the baths. You get a total of one and a half hours in the baths and the massage only lasts for 20 mins I was disappointed in the latter.

Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Our tour guide was a bit temperamental however the full day trip is well worth it! You would be better off choosing to do your own thing for lunch on this tour instead of doing the pre-arranged lunch.

Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Both of these old towns are very beautiful and give you a different perspective of the region outside of Madrid. It's also great to learn about the history of Spain. You get plenty of free time in Segovia to have lunch and wander around.

This service was incredibly disorganised and simply appalling. If you are wanting to get to your lodgings quickly, don't bother with this service and just use the metro.
