Culinary Walking Tour of Little India, Greektown or Leslieville

Toronto, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We took the culinary walking tour of Leslieville and our tour guide, Kevin, was terrific! He was informative and fun and gave us a great insight into the area and provided us with numerous delicious tastings along the tour, which made for a perfect lunch. Although the tour is three hour, it goes quickly and the pace of the tour is leisurely. We had the opportunity to watch a demo and taste different kinds of olive oils, vinegars, salts, and peppers which was both interesting and delicious! Chef Scott gave us many recipes and ideas of things to try at home that could be created with few ingredients but still taste exceptional. The stops vary in taste which keeps the tour interesting and exciting. Great tour, well worth doing and a great value for the money!

I needed to call twice to see where the driver was. ONce in the van we were the second stop which is fine if you are not on a schedule. Next time I would opt for the private pick up.

Paris Food Tour: Macaron and Chocolate Behind-the-Scenes Experience with a Pastry Chef

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Our tour guide was lovely, but merely a translator. There are few samples on this tour and it is very out of the way to get to. Getting to talk to Mulot's chefs was a wonderful experience but we did not see macarons being made the day we went because the chef was on holiday.

Pastry and Dessert Course in Paris

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What an excellent class! Our teacher Pino was so organized and had so many little tips along with fabulous recipies! I would definately take another class!!! Just make sure you get off at the Metro that is suggested, the ones that appear closer are in a different part of town. The school is nice and very clean and modern. You even get to take things home!!! Just a great experience!!!

My Review

You really have watch the time schedule and pick up your passes early. There are different passes within the packet that you can activate differently. So read everything. I would try to arrive on a Fri and get my pass so that I could use it Sat and Sun the get a weekly mMetro pass for that week. Also do the hop on hop off right away as it helps you decide where to go if it is your first time. Then that night do the Seine River cruise. It is definately worth the time.

So wonderful. Adam was great!!! I wish we had gone to more pastry shops, but the chocolate shops were incredible and so accomodating. The Parisians couldn't have been nicer! I would like to see Maison Georege Larnicol added to the tour too.

Northern Ireland including Giant's Causeway Rail Tour from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The Carrick- A- Rede bridge is not as scary as it looks. The thing they don't tell you though, is that, if you think you cross it once and its all over, you have to cross it back too!!! The Giant's Causeway is extremely beautiful, and especially enjoyed by children and people who like to climb! I suggest walking the way down and taking the trolley back up, otherwise you might not make it back in time. But be warned if you don't know already, part of northern Ireland ie. Giant's Causeway they are governed by the U.K. so Pounds are rather perferred than Euros. The train ride is also nice. But BE PREPARED FOR EXTRA EXPENSES!!! Crossing the bridge is and extra fee per- person, and so is the certificate saying you crossed the bridge. Tipping and the trolley ride at Giant's Causeway is also not included. Tipping in Ireland is expected. When you stop for lunch, have ice cream for .75 Pounds across the street delicious!!! The tour guide was great.

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Be prepared for a long uphill walk but I think it is worth it! You will be pushed time wise if it is crowded, to get back to the bus on time. The locals say it is a 20 minute walk but it is really a 45 minute walk, if you take pictures and such. If there could be more time allocated it would be great! But a definate must see!!! The ridicious part of the tour was you only get 20 mins. to shop in the gorgeous town of Oberammergau. Oberammergau is known for their wood carvings and is a must to buy a little one. They are quite amazing. I bought a bird that is about the size of the upper half of my thumb!!! Then you walk for 10 mins. back to the bus!!! Be prepared for extra expenses! Tipping in Germany is expected. Linderhof was also an amazing castle. I liked that better than Neuschwanstein The tour guide could've given more background info on the countryside, which would've been nice. I think Linderhof and Oberammergau should've been put together and Neuschwanstein as a seperate trip. It was too much for one day. But great.
