Fire and Falls Helicopter Adventure from Hilo

Hilo, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very professional team, providing explicit instructions on what to do and what to expect. The pilot was exceptionally friendly and informative, providing us constantly with facts on what we were flying over. All positions in the helicopter were afforded equal viewing of the sights, including where the lava flow entered the ocean. A not to be missed experience.

USS Missouri, Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor and Punchbowl Day Tour

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour is highly organised with an emphasis on security at all points of entry. Visiting the site of the Arizona Memorial was quite poignant in relation to its history. The Missouri provided good insight into the lives of sailors. Most interesting was the viewing of the Document of Surrender, particularly seeing the mistake of the Canadian representative. Our volunteer guide was somewhat tedious in his presentation as he should have realised that we had already been briefed on the relevant history and facts of the Missouri. The one and only eatery providing food for lunch leaves much to be desired. With many hundreds of visitors requiring lunch the queue was never ending and little to no choice on the menu. A very poor service provided to the thousands of visitors daily. However, all in all a worthwhile tour.

Mount Pilatus Summer Day Trip from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

More professional attention and consideration should be given to clients who arrive on time who should not be kept waiting by late comers. Too many different tours on the one bus. We spent most of the morning dropping off clients to Rhineland Tour, All Day Lucerne Tour before we arrived at Mt. Pilatus cable car. Not enough time programmed in for individual sightseeing in Lucerne. Previous tours in 2000 provided at least 2 hours individual time in Lucerne. Too much attention given to young children who do not benefit from such tours. An age limit should be set.

A competent guide made this tour interesting despite very little places of interest. The tour was at a moderate pace through beautiful countryside. All in all a relaxing day.

Lake Como Day Trip from Milan

Milan, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent guide, very knowledgeable. All aspects of this tour presented Milan as a very interesting city. La Scala was highly interesting as was The Last Supper. The children on the tour were precocious and had poor manners. An age limited should be put in place for this type of tour.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

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

My Review

Poor organisation at the beginning of the Tour as to where to book in. Insufficient time allowed in Murano to stroll around the village. Similarly in Burano, No time provided for lunch which would have been of a huge benefit on Torcello which has next to nothing to see.

London, United Kingdom

My Review

No benefit from having front of the line ticket. The clerk was not even at the desk. Day trippers got served before we did. No information given as to the best way to tour Hampton Court. Disappointing
