Dresden Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Dresden is worth a visit for all the sites of interest, both museums and buildings. We felt that we needed more time on our own to see the galleries and wander round to see the sites.

Potsdam Half-Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Unfortunately, the journey to Potsdam took 2.75 hrs which gave no time to see inside the Palace of Sans Souci. We travelled in a double-decker bus, not a coach! There was no courier only an audio commentary which was very poor. Everyone was very disappointed with the experience.

El Escorial Monastery and the Valley of the Fallen from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Escorial was well worth a visit and our guide was very friendly and helpful. We would have preferred to have spent more time there, looking at the other apartments but time was limited, as we also had to see the Basilica of the Valley of the Fallen. The woodland valley views there were dramatic.

Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We went on a full-day trip to Toledo which made it a more leisurely affair and gave us time to see the city in detail. Our guide, Anna, was both friendly and informative, and made the experience very enjoyable. The lunch and the restaurant's location were excellent, as was the "retail therapy" in the afternoon to give the opportunity to see Damascene ware being produced and to purchase a memento.

We thoroughly recommend the trip.
