SeaWorld San Diego with Transport

Anaheim - Buena Park, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Pick up was on time. Taken to the Luxbus depot to change buses. Seamless. Commentary on the way to San Diego (1h45m) was excellent and some nice views. (sit on the right side of the bus). Seaworld was great. Because it was a Friday we were able to get on rides very quickly. The longest we waited was 10mins. The park was open til 6 but we had to leave at 5 to pick up others from the zoo so we didn't get back too late. Therefore we had only one option for the Orca show at 12. No problems - make sure you plan your day around the big shows. One World, Blue Horizons, Pet Show and Seal show (was not very good - cheesy and tacky) Do get to the shows at least 20 mins early if you want good seats. Be warned - the front to middle of the wet zones are not wet zones they are "you will get absolutely head-to-toe saturated" zones. Take a bite to eat if you can or even better - just skip lunch totally to avoid wasting time . We were able to squeeze in every show, every ride (Manta x3) and many exhibits. Don't miss the Wild Arctic zone. Don't bother with "Dining with Shamu" or Private experiences as they will chew up your time and coming from Australia I can always do that at our Seaworld. If you are there on a weekend in a peak season I would recommend a Quick queue unlimited to save time on big shows and popular attractions. We had a fantastic day but got pretty sun burnt as there is not much shade at all - take your sunscreen!!! The trip back was a little longer (2hrs) and was ruined by a drunken idiot husband who was trying to imitate the driver, crack bad jokes, embarrass his little girl and make everyone feel uncomfortable. His wife could have said something. The driver could have said something. Besides this small annoyance (out of the company's control) it was a perfect day. Highly recommended.

Amsterdam Canals Candlelight Cruise Including Wine and Cheese

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent cruise. Enlightening commentary, good cheese plate and endless wine (was fair/good). It was a lovely relaxing cruise although the canals are nice but not spectacular at night. Commentary made up for it - so did the bottle of red I polished off ;-)

Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The dinner cruise was very nice. Great views of Paris along the way. The menu is set with tiny trendy bites as entree and duck, salmon or beef (surcharge of e6) for main. One glass of wine is provided (you can purchase more) and be aware that bottled water will cost you too (without mention). Minor issue - the cruise was enjoyable. The Eifle Tower was unavailable for tour groups due to a lift being repaired - bugger - but we were taken to Tower Montparnasse. The 360 degree night view of Paris was outstanding! It was much better to see the Eifle tower from afar with it's beautiful lightshow starting shortly after we arrived. Then we were taken to the Moulin Rouge where we lined up for an hour and were squeeeeeeeezed into the theatre. They pack 'em in! A table of 8 receives 2 bottles of bubbles. Our table had many jetlagged patrons so their one glass was plenty. Had a few glasses. Unfortunately this didn't improve the show. My friend and I are trained dancers and were disappointed with the choreography - some was of cruise-liner quality and cheesiness. Some dancers were not synchronised. The can-can numbers were good and the comedy sketches during costume changes were funny. It's the Moulin Rouge it was still a great night. Think about it.... are you going for a high-quality dance revue or for a laugh and a good time just because it is the Moulin Rouge. The whole tour was seamlessly put together except the guides were really quite rude but fret not - you have very minimal contact with them. All the people we met on the tour were lovely and everyone gets dropped back quite close to their hotels. :-)

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour was ok. Our guide was quite knowledgable but did not have a flag so we continuously lost her. We did get to see the big three and get snaps etc but the rest of the tour seemed rushed and disconnected - which is the only way you can get an overview of this amazing place in 3 hours anyway. Was fantastic to under the Lourve and see the foundations of the original fort. We skipped theline and went straight in. You could do this tour on your own anyway. DON'T go in the pyramid entrance. there are other entrances in the wings that have no staff. Just a credit card machine. Swipe and go in straight away. Not many people know about these entrances. Grab a map and off you go. Was good but not great. If you have much more time to see the Lourve (we didn't) you can do it by yourself. If you want a quick overview, this tour is for you.

Brilliant! Flawless tour of what seemed like most of The Netherlands. They cram so much into the one day it's amazing. Everything in the listing plus more. The GPS recorded commentary on the bus was informative and interesting. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour. Great to cover so much in one day. Windsor Castle was amazing. Make sure you go around to the back of the castle as the views of it and its gardens are amazing from there. Not many people realise you can get around there. Would have liked more time here but had to allow for travel time. Bath and the Roman baths was great. The village itself is also lovely. Stonehenge was a highlight for me. Make sure you grab the audio tour to complete the experience. Our coach driver was great as was our tour guide - giving interesting commentary throughout the driving parts of the tour. Highly rated day trip. Enjoy.
