Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a very pleasant night out. The boat is well appointed and teh ability to sit outside between courses soaking up the balmy Dubai night is excellant. The table layouts are good and the food and wine is of a very good quality. The service staff are also excellant. It's quite expensive, particularly if you add the drinks package, but overall a recommended experience.

Douro Valley Small-Group Tour with Wine Tasting, Portuguese Lunch and Optional River Cruise

Porto, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We didn't know anything about the Douro Valley prior to booking the tour............boy what a beautiful location and wHat a great tour !! It's a small group tour, which is always better, and you visit two local producers, the second one late in the day concluding with port and wine tasting in the hosts home......a real treat and fabulous hospitality. The boat trip on the beautiful river provided great photo opportunities prior to lunch at a really nice local restaurant.

Our driver/guide/host Barbara was a real gem.........full of information and fun....thanks Babs !! Absolutely recommend this tour.

Barcelona Segway Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Well worth doing as you cover way more than would be possible on foot. The group was limited to the four of us which was great. Our guide, Diago, was very informative and friendly..........he took his time to teach those who hadn't used a Segway before. Diago, I hope you enjoy your upcoming trip to Fremantle.

Skip the Line: Barcelona Sagrada Familia Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Sagrada Familia is well worth seeing..............the outside is a bit of a mess, as you would expect at a construction site (the architecture is not really to my taste) but on the inside you understand why Antonio Guadie chose the method of construction........the massive ceiling is spectacular.

The lines to get in are horrendous, hence the value of the skip the line ticket. I do think our guide could have given a bit more information and provided a more comprehensive tour as after about 50 minutes he left the group to their own devices........you are basically paying a premium to guarantee entry.

Saint-Emilion Day Trip from Bordeaux: Château Wine Tastings and Lunch

Bordeaux, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The group was a little larger than we expected (about 30) but it didn't prove an issue. The guide was very pleasant and informative although listening to the information repeated in French can get a bit tiring by the end of the day. The smorgasbord lunch at the winery was superb, meat, duck, cheeses and salads. This washed down with the hosts great wines (we finished 5 bottles on our table of 8) was a real treat. The guided tour of St Emilion after lunch was interesting but a bit of a slog.........would recommend this to be moved to before lunch.

Our guide John, who was English, was great. He really knew his French history and took his time to explain it to the group, thanks John. We didn't really want to do the walking tour but it was really worthwhile thanks to John great knowledge.

Antwerp Half-Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

To visit the town of Antwerp was good however this particular tour was completed in three languages......no I would not do this tour again. I would ask that the tour be completed in one language..... Having to sit on the bus and listen to everything in three languages was NOT good...... When on the walk through Antwerp we had to also listen to everything three times....boring... Sorry would not recommend this tour unless it was done in only one language....the tour was three times longer than it needed to be.......

Wow...this was brilliant. We were sooooo lucky. We had both Marc and Marie (Mary) complete the tour with us. We were blessed with double the knowledge and experience of this tour.

This was a tour we were really looking forward to. We had been told it was spectacular. Hmmmmm.. Perhaps not for us. It was good but not as good as we had expected. Scenery was nice but we do have natural beautiful scenery in Western Australia. We paid the extra money for the Sheep/shepherd

Edinburgh Castle Entrance Ticket

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was great......except.... We had a front of the line ticket and we lined up for 20 minutes to get in and when we got to the front of the line we were told to go to another office to redeem our tickets......we were not happy....perhaps some signs or assistance to guide you to the correct redemption place would be helpful!!!! Once we got into the castle...wow it was amazing. Perhaps coming from Australia where everything is so new we are a little in awe of these amazing castles. Stayed for the cannon blast at 1pm.....boom it was loud...don't forget to stay for it. Very impressive and definitely worth the visit.

3-Day Isle of Skye Small-Group Tour from Glasgow

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My husband and I booked this tour on a whim. Thank you James (our tour guide) for a fantastic time. We stayed in the Pink Guest House accommodation (if you are in the Isle of Skye, you must stay here). We were blessed with wonderful weather (perhaps we brought it with us) so touring every day was brilliant. A wonderful experience which I would recommend to all..... We recommend you eat out at the local restaurants as the quality in all restaurants was fantastic.

Singapore City Pass: Singapore Flyer, Duck Tour and Food Trail

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Really good.... Have done Duck tours in the USA.. this was very different but still enjoyable. The cost was excellent as it included the flyer which is a must in Singapore. The food trail just provided vouchers for the food hall... We didn't know the food hall was there so at least it gave us a nice option to sit and have a meal and drink. I would recommend this tour to all Singapore visitors. We had done the flyer before but was still enjoyable to do again.... Thornlie WA

High-Speed Passenger Ferry From Victoria, British Columbia to Seattle, Washington

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

My Review

The trip was pleasant enough and the staff were quite accomodating.................BUT......they do not allocate seats!!! We booked this ferry months in advance and to arrive at the wharf and find that you had to fight for a seat, ridiculous...some people, including some our our party, had to be taken upstairs to the crew quarters because there were not enough seats !!!! Simple solution, allocate seats when you book your tickets. Wouldnt recommend this becuase of this, too difficult !!
