Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

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

My Review

This was a disappointing transfer. It took 2.5 hours from the time of contact with the driver until drop off at the central Paris hotel. After all people were finally on board the mini bus, it then took 1.5 hours to get from Charles De Gaulle airport to the left bank/St Germain area to our hotel. This was between 9pm and 11pm on a Friday night, so definitely not peak hour traffic. For what we paid, and the time it took, I would recommend people pay to take a taxi and not use this service. Our hotel arranged a return private transfer to CDG the following week for much less, and the trip only took 45 mins door to door.

Three Countries in One Day: France, Andorra and Spain from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The locations seen on this trip were lovely. The Pyrenees was spectacular. The guide was very good. But the bus was small and very cramped. Spending 13 hours travelling, with only short visits at each location, meant that most of the time was spent in the bus. It's a pity that being uncomfortable marred the trip, but I will definitely visit the Pyrenees again.

Madrid Tourist Travel Pass

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I probably didn't get the best out of this travel pass. My hotel was close to the city so I spent more time walking than on public transport. Everything was so easy to get to. If I was staying further out I would have used it more. It was nice and easy to use when I did use it though.

Lisbon City Card

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I probably didn't get the best out of this card as I was staying close in to the city and so spent a lot of time walking. It's a good card, but you need to plan carefully ahead of time to visit those attractions covered by the card. Many attractions are not, so be aware of its limitations.

Lisbon Airport Shared Arrival Transfer

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was fantastic. I arrived late in the evening and walked out into the terminal to find my driver immediately. He was very helpful. A short walk to the car and we were underway very quickly. I couldn't have been happier with this transfer. And it was well priced. Will use it again.

The High Adventure - High Mountain Passes Spectacular

Windermere, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was my most spectacular trip yet. In nearly a year of travelling I found this trip to be the best. The scenery was amazing. Every corner turned meant a new vista that was breathtaking. I highly recommend this trip. The Mountain Goat driver was very nice and an excellent driver, on some quite hairy roads! If you only do one trip in the Lake District, then I recommend you do this one.

Chateau de Fontainebleau Admission Ticket with Transport from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent trip. Was well worth it. The palace was amazing. Some parts even better than Versailles. Needed more time there, at least another hour would have meant we could have taken a more leisurely tour instead of rushing through. But overall well worth doing.

Seine River Cruise, Paris Illuminations and Dinner on the Champs-Elysees

Paris, France

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

My Review

Spent a lot of time in traffic, didn't see much at all. Was told the over cruise was first, but it ended up being last. The inner at Chez Clement was ordinary, the wine undrinkable. Two entrees ok, one dessert lovely. The rest dry and bland. Wouldn't bother with this trip again.

Moulin Rouge Paris Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The show was lovely but the food was not very nice. The champagne was outstanding. Great costumes, excellent comedy acts, amazing acrobatic and juggling acts. Found it hard to get assistance for elderly mother travelling with us as there are plenty of steps and no disabled access.

Bus driver was exceptional. Couldn't do enough for my elderly mother, who unfortunately had to travel alone that day. Driver looked after her extremely well. Melacca was very nice, and the travel to and from was lovely looking at the scenery. It was a very interesting day.
