4x4 Dubai Desert Safari

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Everything was well-organised from pick-up to drop off. I was a bit worried about the sand dune ride beforehand but as it turned out it was fun and not as scarey as I expected. I wish there had been time for more sand boarding which I enjoyed. The camel riding, though brief, was enjoyable too.
The barbecue and belly dancing were excellent and being in the desert under the stars really added to the experience.
I would love to take this tour again.

This was a fun tour with a high energy guide. I recommend this tour, not only for the novel concept but also for what you learn. It is important that you are prepared to participate to maximise your enjoyment.

Monterey, Carmel and 17-Mile Drive Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

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

My Review

Hotel pick up was on time and well organised. Our tour guide though was a disappointment. His commentary was not very interesting and very short on detail. He spent a lot of time telling us about the rules on the bus and about himself but not much about the areas we were travelling through. I expect more than pointing out what house he likes. I booked this tour because of others comments and it seems that I was unlucky with the guide I got on the day.

The timetable needs to be adhered to. I nearly missed the bus because it turned up early and left straight away. I can understand them being late if stuck in traffic but at least don't go earlly.

I really enoyed getting out on to the water. This was a tour worth doing and the commentary was very interesting. Amazing view of the city as we approached the dock.
Better signposting is needed at the dock though.

Philadelphia and Amish Country Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an interesting tour. I would have liked to have gone inside the Betsy Ross house - not just look in the gift shop. It is a long day and because so much ground is to be covered it is not always possible to spend as much time as I would have liked at various places. I enjoyed what we did see and am glad that I took the tour.

New York Pizza Tour to Brooklyn and Coney Island

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour guide who was a Brooklyn girl was excellent. She knew the area well and made sure that we all enjoyed ourselves. I loved watching clips of movies as we drove through the locations that were used. It was fascinating. I wasn't too impressed with Coney Island but that is nothing to do with the organisers. Well worth taking the trip.

Miami Day Trip and Florida Everglades Airboat Ride

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The pick-up was on time and the guide had all details under control. She made sure that we all knew what we were doing and where we had to be. She was specific about times which was necessary to enable us to cover all the activities.
A breakfast pack is included because it is such an early start. It was appreciated but it would be nice if the inclusions were a little healthier. To be fair though the croissant was sealed and fresh and the cool drinks were nicely chilled.
It is a very long day so you need to be prepared for a tiring one. We got dropped off at midnight.

Kennedy Space Center Day Trip with Transport from Orlando

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Dennis was really lovely guide and made sure we knew exactly what we were doing.
I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner with the astronaut. The food was good and the astronaut gave a very interesting talk about his experiences in space. Everyone got an opportunity to have their photo taken with him - a lovely souvenir.
There is so much to see and do at Kennedy that I think a second day would make it perfect. I wasn't able to see everything in the time but what I did see was really good.
The imax films are excellent and since they are in 3D you really feel like you wae actually there in the space station.
I deducted one star only because I think there should be the option of a two day experience for those who can spare the time.

Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

Dallas, Texas

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Loved this. The displays are excellent and the audio guide really brings it all to life. It is a pity you are not allowed to take photos inside the museum. I would suggest that a booklet of photos could be compiled and sold to visitors. At least that would give you something to take away instead of having your own photos.

Skip the Line: Front of Line Pass at Universal Studios Hollywood

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great day for all ages. I loved the studio tour and the special effects that were demonstrated. The shuttle that regularly runs to the entrance from near the Universal metro station is really appreciated. It's quite a steep walk up hill and the shuttle is free.
I think the 'front of the line pass' is essential to be able to get around and avoid standing in lines for ages. If you are visiting from overseas or interstate you would be crazy not to pay the extra. It's not as if you can go there any time you want and it would be really disappointing to spend so long queueing and miss out of many of the activities.

San Francisco Super Saver: Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our guide was really good. He made sure we all had a good time and was very entertaining and informative. I enjoyed the whole day.
Of the wineries I thought the last one was the best. They were more generous with their wines and were so enthusiastic and welcoming. The grounds were interesting to wander through and I found the museum displaying models of the California missions fascinating.
On the way back to San Francisco we stopped for a photo op overlooking the Golden Gate bridge - million dollar view. That was the best place to photograph the bridge and was really appreciated.

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Hotel pickup went smoothly and I was happy that we were also returned to our hotels at the end of the night. The buffet was worth the cost and a there was plenty of choice. Our guide was really helpful in giving advice regarding what times to avoid when selecting activities - to avoid huge queues. It was a lovely evening and certainly worth considering for tourists visiting Singapore.

Well worth the price paid. Everything worked well - the transport and accommodation was first class. The hotels that were booked were top quality. I recommend the nightwatchman's tour in Rothenburg. You are given a choice of that or the day tour and I opted for the night one. The nightwatchman was great and the atmosphere was fantastic. This was a great way to see the Romantic Road - plenty of photo opportunity stops along the way.

My Review

An interesting tour and I was pleased that there was no rush to get around. The signage on the yacht is easy to follow. The only minor difficulty was finding where the entrance to the yacht was from the shopping mall but the person on the information desk gave me excellent directions. I caught the bus from Princes Street which was easy, quick and inexpensive. This tour is a must if you are in Edinburgh.

My Review

I loved this tour. It can be a bit tricky in the traffic if you are inexperienced on the roads like I am. However, with the additional guide at the rear of the 'pack' and following the instructions to keep close together it was fine. One of the highlights was cycling around the forecourt of the Louvre - magic!! The boat trip with the wine tasting was great too. I loved every minute and as an older (not too fit) traveller I recommend it to others.

A really interesting tour and a great way to see Potsdam. Our guide was really good. We stopped at a lovely beer garden by the lake for lunch. Tam, our guide, helped everyone order their lunch. That was really appreciated since the menu was in German and I certainly needed help. The audio tour through the location for the Potsdam Conference was really interesting.

Really enjoyed this tour. The guide told us so much as we travelled to Alkmaar about the things we were seeing on the way. The cheese market was pretty crowded but I still got some great photos. Having a look inside a windmill was good and worth the extra couple of Euros.

I was the only one who turned up. Apparently nobody else had booked and they were not keen to take one person. I was reluctantly given a partial refund. Might be better not to pre-book and just show up and see if the tour was running.
