Three Valleys Day Trip from Marrakech with Optional Visit to Takerkoust Lake and Kik Plateau

Marrakech, Morocco

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was an excellent day trip, definitely worth doing whilst in Marrakech. We travelled with a 3 year old and were pleasantly surprised as Shakid, our driver and guide, had arranged a car seat which wasn't done of any other tours. There was another couple who travelled with us in the SUV.
We had a trek to the waterfalls in Ourika valley and our guide there, Omar, was very helpful. He helped us with our son and even carried him on his shoulders. It is around a 30 minute trek and not for people with arthritis or mobility problems.
There was an option to do the camel ride but we skipped it as our son was asleep.
The highlight of the trip was the lunch in the berber house. It was an idyllic location with the view of the valleys. We felt as if we were having lunch in the Grand Canyon. We then drove past the Takerkoust Lake and Kik Plateau with a photo stop with the lake in the background.
I would definitely recommend doing this trip.

Marrakech Palaces and Monuments Tour

Marrakech, Morocco

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was an excellent tour and good value for money. We had 2 guides with us on the tour who took turns to explain the history of the monuments. The palace was amazing with the lovely ceiling and tiled floors. Covered a lot of monuments and they even dropped us back at the square when we requested instead of our hotel.

Souks and Medinas of Marrakech Tour

Marrakech, Morocco

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It gives you a bearing of the vast area of the souks and medina. There is a lot of walking involved and you just walk through the small bye lanes. If you are adventourous enough to venture into the bye lanes yourself then you can skip the tour. However if you prefer walking in a group and not bother about people chasing you to buy stuff it is worth doing the trip.
The trip gave us an idea where to go and find things. We spent the next 2 days within the souks walking and shopping on our own.

Danube Bend Day Trip from Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was a good day trip and our guide was very knowledgeable. Not surprising as she has been a guide for 20 years. The meal was good and the restaurant setting was serene with excellent views. Would definitely recommend if you have time in Budapest.

Budapest Sightseeing Tour with Parliament House Visit

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The parliament was good. Our guide gave us lots of information and history of Budapest. The bus was running late for the city tour by 45 minutes. Were told it was because of traffic! As a consequence the tour was rushed through with no stop at Hero's square. Though we paid for a 3 hr tour it was effectively a 2 hour tour and hence the 4 stars. The trip gave us a teaser as we spend the next day visiting all tourist spots at leisure. We were given complimentary boat cruise tickets which we used for the night cruise.

Las Vegas Airport Roundtrip Transfer

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
If you like the peace of mind of booking everything in advance, then it is a good idea to book before you leave. However, it is very easy to take the shuttle even after you land in Las Vegas. The main problem comes with reconfirming your return trip, especially if will be using your mobile to call the number. You have to wait for 15-20 min, and for that amount on your mobile bill you can easily take a taxi.

Grand Canyon West Rim Air and Ground Day Trip from Las Vegas with Skywalk

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Excellent trip. Should definitely do it. We ended up going twice on the same day as on the first trip the plane couldn't land due to ice on the runway. We went during off season, so the Skywalk was empty. Cameras are not allowed but they take photos which are available to buy starting at 35 for 1 or 4 printed photos and all your photos on a USB device for 100. If you plan to buy the photos, make sure you take several photos which would then work out cheap.

It was very good day as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. There is no mention of the cruise on the booking for summer, and it was a very pleasant surprise.
