Private Tour of London's Historic Pubs

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I loved all the pubs on this tour! I would never have found them on my own, but I will definitely go back to visit them again. I learned a lot about British beer and breweries from the guide, who answered all my questions. The beer tastings were fantastic and it was nice to hear from the guide what the pubs were known for so I could order that and try their classic beer. Such interesting history and pubs, a great time!

Customizable Wine Country Tour from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Our group had a great time on the wine lovers tour! We picked three wineries we were really interested in and the guide customized the day to fit those three wineries in, as well as one additional winery he suggested and time for a relaxing lunch in Sonoma. The guide was superb and we had a wonderful day tasting wine and not worrying about driving.

Great tour. The ice was gorgeous, the canyon was so beautiful and fun to trek through. Our guide was very good, and had maple cookies and hot chocolate for us at the canyon end. Seeing the thousand year old petroglyphs was really interesting.

Napa Valley Wine Country Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I had a lovely day up in wine country. Our guide was awesome, he seemed to know everything about wine and answered all questions. I think I learned new things about wine, though I thought I already knew a fair bit. I also liked that we had a separate driver so he could hang out with us more at the wineries during the tastings. All four wineries were gorgeous, with great wines, and I thought it was a nice mix of small wine makers and larger ones. In most cases we got our own private wine tasting area and staff, which was nice. My favorite part was walking through the vines at Andretti, and since the harvest was over, we could eat any grapes we found, which I did (tasty, but seedy). Overall would recommend, especially since the group was smaller than the big bus tours.

London Shared Departure Transfer: Hotel to Airport

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The best time I've had getting from my office in London to the airport. Though the pickup time was maybe a bit too early for my flight time (I had plenty of time to kill at the airport), I understand that the transfer service wants to make sure you don't miss your flight due to traffic issues. The shuttle was lovely and clean with comfy seats. I would definitely recommend it over lugging luggage on the train. This was much more comfortable.

Skip the Line: California Academy of Sciences Behind-the-Scenes Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Loved the Platinum Tour - especially skipping all the entrance lines. Jumping the line outside was great, but it was the best to not wait for access to anything inside. The rainforest, planetarium and living roof were super cool. Getting to see all the behind the scenes action - where they make the food, clean the water and the scientists working made the whole California Academy of Sciences experience much richer. And I loved getting access to the vault. Also our guide was awesome, he seemed to know everything. Highly recommended.

I thought this was a great tour of Chinatown after dark. We wandered through a ton of the interesting alleyways and the guide had great commentary on Chinatown history, Chinese superstitions and tales of ghosts in Chinatown. My favorite part was seeing and hearing people playing mah-jongg. The fortune cookie factory was also fantastic.

The line for entry was pretty long even though we went in November, so it was nice to be able to skip it and pick up tickets at the group window no line. The Tower was super cool and much bigger than I thought, its really a complex of buildings and exhibits. Also, the ravens rock.

I really liked this audio tour, the commentary was very good and I thought the directions were clear. Definitely go into the Mission, the cemetery is very interesting and well worth checking out. Also, there are a couple of big hills on the tour, which you can skip if its physically too much for you, but I would slog it out if you can, the views were awesome and the houses really cool.

Shark Diving Xtreme in Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The shark dive was an incredible experience! I'd never been diving before, but the instruction was really good and I felt very comfortable the scuba gear. I thought I would be more scared, but the guides are great and the experience was very safe. Not only were the sharks amazing, but the rays and other sea creatures were fantastic to see up close. I highly recommend checking this out if you are in Sydney, it's a a one of a kind experience.

Quito, Ecuador

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We had an awesome guide - I learned a ton about Ecuador's history and Mitad del Mundo. It was fantastic not to have to drive or figure out the Quito bus system to visit. I highly recommend the optional Inti Nan museum stop at the actual GPS equator, and visiting the Ethnographic Museum at Mitad del Mundo. Our guide really brought the museum to life. Highly recommended tour.

We had a great time on this cruise! We saw a few whales and quite a few dolphins; the guide was quick to point them out and was very knowledgeable about all the marine life around Reykjavik. The puffins were super cute, that might have been my favorite part of the tour. Bring a jacket - it gets cold out on the boat!

The staff were friendly and helpful and the dive went off without a hitch. All four of us were first-time divers and the hand-on pre-dive preparation was very helpful, without being too time consuming. The dive itself was exciting, without being scary. Being so close to half a dozen huge sharks, many rays, and schools of big fish, in a safe, controlled environment was quite a thrill!

Private Las Vegas Mob Tour by Limousine

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I really enjoyed the Vegas Mob tour! Though it's not a glitzy tour, it was really interesting to hear the insider history of the mob in Vegas. Our guide was a font of knowledge and had actually talked with a lot of the FBI and mob people involved in Las Vegas. If you're a fan of the movie Casino you cannot miss this tour -- a lot of the sites from the movie are visited, and there is a lot of detail about the operations at the Stardust. I found the whole experience fascinating, and a really unique experience.

I really enjoyed this cruise -- it was pleasantly different from the other bay cruises in San Francisco. We saw more of downtown and the ballpark area, as well as Treasure Island, Alcatraz and the new Bay Bridge construction. The audio tours were really well done, I mainly listened to architecture, but the other audio seemed interesting and entertaining as well. The ship was really nice, and had great refreshments. Overall it was a really pleasant experience.

My Review
My official review: This was a really fun tour. Our guide was really knowledgeable about Australian history, which made the drive out to the Hunter Valley educational and interesting. We stopped at an animal reserve to see kangaroos and other native animals, which was cool. The wineries we visited were great and we learned a ton about Australian wine.
My non-official review: I loved Coopers so much that I shipped out a case of their wine. Seriously. Everyone on the tour was like, crazy American girl shipping out cases of wine.

Yay! I learned to surf. I got a bit scraped up, but rode in some waves and had a good time. Overall it was a great tour -- the beach was lovely, the guys who instructed us were fun and professional, and lunch was good. I did wish we got to stay about an hour more -- we got there at 10.30ish and left at 3, with a break for lunch and instruction time. It didn't feel like I got to surf as much as I would've liked.

Blue Lagoon Spa Roundtrip Transport from Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I spent my 29th birthday at the Blue Lagoon, and it was a lovely way to celebrate the day. I highly recommend scheduling a massage or other treatment in advance as they book up. The water massage I had was wonderful. Overall the Blue Lagoon is really nice, like a little resort. The hot spring pool and waterfalls were a delight after trudging about in the Iceland cold, and it was a nice bonus to have the volcanic mud poolside to use. I found that taxis are really expensive in Iceland it would have cost about $100 to get a ride out to the Lagoon, so I highly recommend taking the free pickup offered by the tour. Overall it was a totally relaxing experience and a great way to get over jet lag!

We took the ferry as part of a day trip to the South Island to go wine tasting, and it was a gorgeous trip. The ferry itself is nice, with movies, food, etc to pass the time comfortably, but the best part of the journey is the beautiful scenery as you travel through the sound. There were plenty of outside and window seats to have a drink and enjoy the view, and it was a very relaxing trip.

I really enjoyed our visit to the Antarctic Encounter. All of the animal life was fantastic! In particular the penguin habitat was really impressive, you can view very closely the penguins and their newborn chicks, and riding in the snowcat was a lot of fun. The historical photographs and films of early Antarctic expeditions were also very interesting. It was worth checking out as part of our trip to New Zealand.

Sydney Opera House Guided Backstage Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was amazing. There;'s a totally hidden underworld to the Sydney Opera House that you don't even realize is there if you're just attending a performance. We went up in the fly walks, down under the stages and into the orchestra pits, into the seats and behind the sets. It was technically really interesting with lots of information about all the effects with lights, fog and acoustics. Our guide was fantastic, she has a lot of passion for the events that are hosted there, as well as a whole library of interesting stories about occurrences during performances and at the Opera House. The people on our tour asked dozens of questions and she had fabulous, robust answers for each of them. This tour is a must for anyone who loves performing arts, it's a totally enriching experience.
