Great Barrier Reef Diving and Snorkeling Cruise from Cairns

Cairns, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Brilliant! There were 60 passengers on the boat so not a small tour but there were plenty of crew to help. Do not expect to have either a "trial dive" or a "guided snorkeling tour" with that many people but the reef is so amazing that this is not necessary. Lunch was also quite good. Thanks!

Amazing and far exceeded expectations. Extraordinarily knowledgeable cameleers, well organized, and fun. I have already recommended this to friends in Oz. One of the best things we did in Yulara

Best of Ayers Rock: Sunset Uluru and Sunrise Kata Tjuta Small Group Tours

Ayers Rock, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Nice tour, beautiful views, and knowledgeable guides. Forget about food - bring your own. "Full breakfast" was a box of cereal, small kiddy fruit cup, juice, coffee, and toast. "Evening snacks" are bread cubes with oil and vinegar. They could do far better, or just eliminate expectations in the ad.

Ayers Rock, Australia

Fantastic. yes the sky was completely overcast with no stars in sight but that is the weather. The guides did their best to tell stories to make up for this and the BBQ was great. Highly recommended.

Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour. The temple and cable car ride were stunning and the pick up and return very well organised.
My only suggestions would be to eliminate the 20 minute stop at the sorry little strip of "beach" and it would be wonderful if the tour guide could provide information some history and inteseting facts about the places we visit.

Hong Kong Flexi Attractions Pass

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

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

My Review

Buyer beware. The cost is low but much of the pass is worthless.

The good:
The Peak tram is an absolute must do in HK! This pass worked with no problems.

The frustrating:
There is no way to obtain your pass before arriving in Hong Kong so if you have a flight that occurs late at night (mine arrived 11.20PM) you can forget about using the airport transfer.
I agree with the other reviewer about the Victoria Harbour tour pass. This must be obtained from the 10th floor Star Tower on the same day as the tour and the receipt brought to the pier. The problem is that the office doesn't open until 9 AM (if on time) and the tours starts at 10. If you show up any other time, like attempting to book a day in advance, you are refused. However the tour is superb!
Also as noted, the DHK balloon is out of commission, Viator has now updated this on the web site but this was not the case when I booked.

The really bad:
Quote: "Fisherfolks’ Village on Lamma Island: Enjoy a 30-minute scenic ferry ride from Hong Kong Island to Lamma Island. Then, explore this quaint fishing village to learn about the humble culture of fisherfolks" Except that the ferry ride is NOT included. What DO you get for this "tour" when you arrive? Only a photocopy of a map and you're on your own. Bleh!
