Moulin Rouge Show Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The seats we got were excellent and we were seated with two people from London and another couple from Canada. So it was great to be able to chit chat during the meal. The food was not the highlight of the evening, but you don't leave hungry. The show was great, but the staff are not very friendly, particularly the doormen and the coat check girls (be forwarned - you must check your coat and there is a fee). The seating was quite cramped too.

Paris City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Not enough stops and only 1 line. We noticed that the 'other' bus tour company available in Paris has 4 lines and over 50 stops. It's very easy to get around Paris with the Metro, but it was nice to see parts of it with the bus. The good part was that the buses on this line were very speedy - we never had to wait more than 10 minutes.

Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery and Gardens Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a great thing to do in Rome and an awesome collection of art. We had a fairly new guide and she was a bit nervous. I'm giving this a lower rating because it was very frustrating to have paid the tour price only to have other visitors tag along with us and get the narrative for free! The tour guide had a microphone, which had she used it properly, would have eliminated the problem quite nicely. But because she was speaking loudly, it made it very easy for others to hear every word.

Palma de Mallorca Shore Excursion: Palma de Mallorca City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Mallorca, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It is true that there is a stop right in front of the cruise ship terminal, but because of the start time of the bus, you will have to wait quite a while. It would be great if the tour bus company timed their first bus to arrive at the terminal shortly after the boat arrives. The driver should also allow the people with advance tickets to get on first (as a 'skip the line' perk.) This is because other passengers butted in front of us (even though we were the first to stand at the bus station) and held everyone up asking questions and buying tickets, etc. Not much to see on the route...more stops should be added.

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was great! We had an awesome guide who was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. It was great to skip the line too, as it was quite long. The walking tour provides great narrative that we'd otherwise not know (unless you travel with a guidebook).

Amsterdam Canal Bus Hop-On Hop-Off

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

My Review

This was not a great way to see Amsterdam. The schedule is not great - long waits at the canal stops. Very crowded - sometimes had to sit apart from each other.

My Review

We loved this tour! It was a great way to see England and the narration was great - very informative. We did the full route, which gave us a great perspective of London that you would not otherwise see. Highly recommend going to Greenwich on the line.
