Southampton Shore Excursion: Post-Cruise Tour to London via Salisbury, Stonehenge and Windsor

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The excursion was very enjoyable. Salisbury cathedral was spectacular and Stonehenge was most thought provoking. My wife and I did not go into Windsor Castle (we had done so many years back) so we shopped in the town and had a wonderful pub lunch close to the castle. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the three sites and kept us entertained and laughing while on the bus (although perhaps a bit too cruel to some of the monarchy). The only negative was the long delay as the people going directly to the airport were moved to another bus (which was too small for the people and their luggage), but all in all it was a wonderful excursion.

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I highly recommend this trip. Our guide (Paolo) did a great job of accommodating the needs of both the American and Canadian guests. Although a long trip (over 12 hours), he kept us informed and entertained. The lunch, in an out of the way farmhouse, was fabulous. The tour exceeded our expectations.

Versailles and Giverny Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The palace of Versailles lived up to its advance billing - it is simply spectacular! Our guide did a wonderful job of providing interesting details and answering all of our questions. We were unable to make this trip when in Paris in 2010 but made certain that we could attend this year. This trip is simply a "must see"!

Paris by Night Illuminations Tour and Paris Moulin Rouge Show

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The illumination part of the tour was wonderful. Paris at night is quite stunning, and our guide pointed out many things that we had completely missed when in Paris in 2010. The Moulin Rouge show was a bit disappointing. We had expected to see a good bit of "can can" dancing, rather than only one routine. And being at the end of the line meant being packed in like a sardine and having to look sideways to see the show. Pehaps getting to the theatre a bit earlier might provide a better seat and view
