Beijing Classic Full-Day Tour including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour, but a long day at a fast pace to pack everything in. There is a lot of walking, with the first drop at Tienamen Square and then into the Forbidden City before getting back to the bus. It is a great way to see the city, but as with all tours, you get taken to 2 extra places .... A silk factory where they try and sell you a quilt and then a Chinese herbal centre where try to sell you herbal medicines.

If these two selling stops were missed out the day would be perfect, and the perfect length.....

Excellent day, due to a cancellation. We were the only two on the tour and got to have a little more control over which areas we spent more time.

Recommend this one :o)

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Our trip commenced with about 30 other groups of skip the line tours. It took about 15 minutes to get to the security screening point, but while we were waiting our guide Robert was already imparting stories of Vatican hill, and of Nero so that we would have a better appreciation once inside. Our guide was extremely knowlegeable about the Vatican, its works of art and its history. We spend an hour in the Sistine chapel and he gave a gerat explaination of the ceiling and how and why it was done. If you want to see the vatican go an see the vatican, if you want to enjoy and get something more out of your trip then book this and spend some money. You will not be disappointed.

The London Showboat Dinner Cruise on the Thames River

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We were lucky that there were not many people on board for dinner, so everyone had a window seat. Great trip and views of London. It seemed odd that although we started at Westminster pier, we did not pass the Houses of Westminster and Big Ben. Overall, a great trip with ok food and wine....Would recommend it

Singapore City Tour with optional Singapore Flyer

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
You can do this trip yourself, at your own pace and for less money. Buy a guide book and get a taxi.... The chinese temple and jade factory are worth missing, spend more time at the Orchid gardens. The flyer is great and worth doing....again on your own I would not recommend this tour
