Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I was a little disappointed with this tour, just because having heard so much about the Three Sisters I thought they would be somewhat larger and grander. The area is also far more built up than I expected, not giving the impression of being in a mountain countryside area at all. The township of Leura was lovely and the stop could have been longer if possible (the drivers apparently feed this back to the company regularly but without any changes to the itinerary). The highlight was for me, the trip back from Homebush by boat to Circular Quay allowing a wonderful opportunity to see all the riverside properties. Our driver for the day was very pleasant, but he lacked the personality and passion of other tour leaders I have experienced such as Tiffany on the Sistine Chapel Tour or Beau on the Food Tour both in Rome last year.
I certainly think that the area is worth seeing, but the day lacked a little something to make it a fabulous experience.

My Review

The young lady guide for this tour, Beau, was excellent. Loads of information about the various provodores, liberally sprinkled with ancecdotes. The Testaccio area is buzzy and the nine food stops chosen had fabulous food to try throughout the four hours of the tour, while the walking between stops provided an opportunity to take a rest from eating, stretch the legs and prepare for the next mouthful. Fantastic value for money, and with just eight or nine food lovers in the group, it made for an enjoyable interchange throughout. Highly recommended.

Viator VIP: Sistine Chapel Private Viewing and Small-Group Tour of the Vatican's Secret Rooms

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is an expensive tour so expectations were high. No disappointment though, well worth it. Our tour guide, Tiffany, was very knowledgable, very clear and encouraged questions from the group of nine people which she answered readily throughout. The Caravaggio painting, which I was keen to see, was not part of the tour due to time constraints, but as we got started quickly, Tiffany included it in the tour, giving an excellent overview of the painting and artist as well. An great bonus. The areas covered in this tour are not normally accessible and it was a pleasure and privilege to be able to see these artistic treasures and hear about them. Bramante's staircase and the views from it across the city of Rome - fantastic. The obvious highlight was the Sistine Chapel after the crowds had left. Tiffany provided an overview of the progress of Michelangelo's masterpiece, including interesting anecdotes, over the four and a half years he spent completing it. Wonderful. A once-in-a-lifetime treat.

Our guide was very informative and responded well to questions put to him. It was a very cold day and our time outside was somewhat curtailed, but the trip was very worthwhile.

My Review

Did the full round without getting off which was good to get my bearings. The stop at Gassan Diamonds was unexpected as I had already been there on the half day tour. I followed this up with the canal cruise which was excellent, particularly as the sun came out. The guide was very good with some great stories about the houses, their owners and in some cases their peculiarities.

Amsterdam City Sightseeing Tour

My Review

Due to heavy snow I believe there were perhaps some city sights that could not be visited, but instead we were taken into the countryside and given quite a special look at the area a little out of Amsterdam. Our guide was very informative, friendly and invited us to ask questions. A worthwhile tour.
