Hampton Court Palace Bike Tour from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Cannot rate this bike tour highly enough. We had so much fun riding along the Thames seeing the sites most people would miss if they went by bus. The route was easy to manage for the experienced as well as the inexperienced and just the right length. Plenty of shade, with ample stops to catch up or get photos.
Being able to visit Hampton Court at our own pace was perfect. We were able to take in the ambiance of the palace instead of feeling rushed. We were able to see all of the palace and a lot of the grounds in our visit despite the crowds.The return rail ticket was a bonus. A perfect end to a great tour.
I would recommended this tour readily to any one. A lot of fun, well organised and value for money.

London's Chocolate Walking Tour

London, United Kingdom

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

My Review

We did the equivalent tour in Paris and it was amazing so we chose to do the same in London. I must say, I was disappointed with the shops we visited. Most were small and mostly we had to do our tastings outside. We weren't given any history of chocolate or the shops in London or any history of the particular chocolate makers. We were just led from shop to shop with nothing informative along the way.
Maybe if we had not done the Paris tour, we would have enjoyed this. For the lack of information and samples, I would not recommend this tour as value for money.

Skip the Line: Madame Tussauds London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We did this attraction three years ago and now for the second time with our family. Certainly the workmanship and staging of the wax figures was amazing and perfect but there were still a lot of figures on view that we had already seen. Our family had fun having their pictures taken with the figures and loved their visit.
Even though we purchased "Skip the Line" tickets we had to line up for too much time especially as equal amounts of the line with no early tickets and our pre purchased line went in at the same time.
Worth a visit but not sold on the value

Skip the Line: London Zoo Tickets

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our family consisting of adults enjoyed our day at the zoo. We got to see animals that we haven't got in Australia.
Even though the zoo was crowded with children and holiday makers we were able to see what we wanted. The staff were attentive and well actioned when we pointed out a mishap with an upturned tortoise.
We had our lunch at the cafe. The service was quick and the food delicious. Not too expensive either!
A pleasant day.

Medieval Banquet and Merriment by Torchlight in London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an amazing adventure.
From the time we walked in until we left, we were treated like royalty and involved with the show.
The food was great and very plentiful as were the drinks.
Being invited to participate in the pantomime was special and added to the atmosphere, everyone got brave and gave it a go. The dancing with the cast afterwards was a nice touch.
An extremely fun night and value for money.

Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The very early start to this day was well worth it with our first view of Stonehenge. We were able to get up close and personal with the stones. Having a small group added to the atmosphere. The trip to Bath was extremely interesting. We had plenty of time to do the Roman Baths as well as look around the town before heading back to London
Better than being on the outside of the ropes!!

Tower of London Entrance Ticket Including Crown Jewels and Beefeater Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a must do tour for everyone. Although we had been before, we wanted to see the Tower again. We were clever this time and lined up to see the Jewels first! A leeson learned after waiting in line nearly 90 minutes last visit. The new format was informative. We got to see a few areas that we didn't visit last time as we ran out of time. I would recommend visiting the chapel.
I would recommend allowing 4 or 5 hours at the Tower of London to do it justice. Hard to believe the history it has. This is not a place to rush through.The staff were extremely friendly and obliging, especially the Yeomen.

Wartime London Tour: The City and Imperial War Museum

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Arrived to bedlam at Victoria Station so please allow ample time to find your tour if you are on an early one. Our tour guide eventually materialised out of the crowd dressed beautifully in a suit and hat of the period. He directed us to our bus that had been meticulously restored. It certainly attracted the attention where ever we went. The recorded speeches and news broadcasts we heard on our tour were interesting and added to the atmosphere. We were a little disappointed that we did not get to see actual sites. Being driven past in traffic makes it hard to spot were you are supposed to look. The booklet provided was a useful tool. Unfortunately, our tour was caught in traffic and so we missed most of our allocated time at the war museum so we were left unfulfilled.

Skip the Line: London Dungeon

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Not my "cup of tea" but our adult daughters wanted the experience. We only had to wait in line a short time before we were through the door and on our way to hell. Although, it is all staged, a very good job is done to make your visit through the dungeons authentic and interesting. This was my second time so not as scarey as the first but as the venue had changed, I was still in for a few surprises.
Hold onto your hats everyone!!!!!!

Small-Group River Thames Bike Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I would highly recommend any of the bike tours offered including this one. It certainly was an experience getting up close and personal with the London traffic especially the red buses!
The cobblestones made their presence felt the next day!
Our guide was knowledgeable and fun, the Irish accent was divine!
We had a range of experience in our group and everyone coped and made it back to base with lots of laughs.
It's a great way to see a lot of areas that maybe you would not normally get to.
The only down side was that there wasn't the Thames clipper ride as advertised, a bit deceiving as we especially picked this tour to take advantage of the different transports.

My Review

John, our guide for this tour was very knowledgeable and offered up plenty of theories. We certainly covered quite an area and heard lots of tales. However, I think the atmosphere would be enhanced if the tour was at twilight or after dark. Its a bit hard to picture a spooky scenario in daylight.
However despite this, we had fun!

Loved the glitz and glamour. The show was well presented and tasteful. The staff were very attentive. Only negative would be the menu - not a lot of choice even though we paid extra and the food was only okay compared to the price.

This tour was fantastic! Our guide Aaron was very knowledgeable. He was a great person to listen to and attentive to all our needs. Well worth paying more to skip the line also as we went straight in. A blessing on a hot day.

Enjoyed this tour immensely. Our guide Myriam was just lovely and very entertaining. We certainly learnt quite a lot in the 3hours. We tasted an assortment of lovely food including bread and gelato.

My Rating

My Review

A nice way to spend a day. The markets were an eye opener and extremely interesting. Our guide Aaron presented Versaille to us under extremely trying conditions - the temperature on the day was 38 degrees!! He did a magnificent job and even though I have been before I learnt new things. Beautiful gardens with amazing tales behind their construction, and lovely shady trees to have our lunch under. We collected our lunch at the markets and bought extra fruit to compliment. The bagette was glorious.Our day ended with Aaron directing us to our correct Metro connections. Thankyou Aaron!!
