Prague, Czech Republic

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our guide was knowledgable and witty and filled with great local legends.
Unfortunately the recent floors stopped us taking the normal route, our guide took us to some other sites which was good.

Switzerland Mountains, Cheese and Chocolates Tour from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Well where do I begin,
Let's start with the good, the chocolate outlet has lots of stuff you can't get in Australia. We bought 3 kg of chocolate and the price was way cheaper than we could imagine.
The view on top of the mountains is just amazing. Really made the trip worth the drive.

The bad, the cheese factory tour isn't so good, 30 minutes is all you get. 15 minutes of which is a video promoting the cheese company, talking about how much care and manual labour they put into making the cheese and other promotional things. Only to see after the video that every single step is automated. This leaves very little time to taste the cheese samples and buy.

Unfortunately our tour guide wasn't the greatest, nothing of great interest was spoken about which made the driving sections of the tour seem longer than they are. Would really have helped if more interesting information was given.
For example, I could have done without the explanation on how grass grows and is then chopped by farmers. Or the 5 minute conversation on how power in Switzerland is transmitted through power lines to each home. This may be okay for a bus load of 5 years olds but more interlectual/witty information is required at the very least for adults. A bit more thought and preparation by the tour guide on what to say during the driving sections would improve this tour.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Felt a little rushed at times but that's the only way to get through the masses of people.
You get to see the major museum items and the Sistine Chapel for a good amount of time.
Our guide was informative and knew what he was talking about.
A tour that is a feast for your eyes.

Do people a favour and go to the toilet before hand, we had 30 minutes of our tour wasted by people going to the toilet after the security check in, the worst place to go.

Such an amazing location for such an amazing village.

Eiffel Tower Dinner and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
the tour is very good, its not to rushed either like the tour that also includes moulin rouge. The people to did that had to rush but we had all the time in the world. The they from the tower is great and the river cruise can be taken anytime you want, so i'd suggest waiting for night fall as the city at night as great.
