Dublin Historical Walking Tour including Trinity College

Dublin, Ireland

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

My Review

We actually left this tour at the 2nd stop..our guide was definitely a student of history and we felt like we were in a fairly dull lecture. Nice young man but really in love with the sound of his own voice.

Skip the Line: Guinness Storehouse Entrance Ticket

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Loved the new 'learn to pull a Guinness w/ diploma' One of the highlights of our stay in Dublin. Nice to be able to wander the exhibits and see what we wanted (I was in advertising so wanted to spend more time in that section) and stay as long as we chose. Was disappointed that the Free taste was just for Guinness, as not everyone likes stout. They sell the others brews they make, but will not let you have those with your tasting ticket.

This was a very entertaining tour...great way to spend an evening in good company enjoying our talented and informative guides and a pint or two. We are much more 'literate' now.

Barcelona Gourmet Food and La Boqueria Market Walking Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Claudio was a delight and handled a fairly large group with firm charm. The market is unlike any in any other city we have visited. Unlike the rambling food stalls in Paris or London, this market is in many ways ART. Not only is the food spectacular but the reverence for the food shown by the presentation is so beautiful. The shops we visited on the way to and from the market were a wonderful history of the foods
unique to Barcelona (and Catalonia). Great tour!

This a our 'go to' for our first couple of days in any new city...the chance to get an overview of the area is invaluable not to mention the ease of 'hopping on and hopping off'.

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Unfortunately, our guide from the Chocolate and Macaroon tour called to get the address of this tour for us an wrote down the wrong address..#57 (a closed Thai restaurant) instead of #127. By the time we found the correct address the tour was over...our guide did take 5 minutes to show us around and we did get our baguette and our croissants. Beautiful shop!

Paris Food Tour: Macaron and Chocolate Behind-the-Scenes Experience with a Pastry Chef

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful experience...Patrick was a delight and so obviously loves what he does that he is infectious. We sampled more than our share YUM and I am in awe of how they turn out those treasures in that tiny space. The chocolates are true works of art and in spite of the fact that we were clearly taking up valuable space we felt very welcomed.

Behind-the-Scenes Eiffel Tower Tour Including Champ de Mars’ Underground Bunker

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I have been to the Eiffel tower twice before but this was a truly educational and fun tour.
Our guide was a font of information and the trip into the bunker is a once in a lifetime experience. There were 4 young boys (8-12) on our tour and to quote them..."the tour was just AWESOME"

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were the only guests on this tour and our guide was just wonderful. She not only gave us a wonderful journey through the markets (tasting as we went) but shared the history of the neighborhood and took us to visit craftspersons as well. The stop at le
Baron Rouge was interesting as my friend took a picture of the proprietor and got quite the lecture on French photo ettiquette. A fun visit to 'old Paris'

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of our headsets did not work...as we all know, this kind of thing happens. Raves to our guide, who made the very best of the situation. She just explained to all that we needed to stay close to her and was vigilant in making sure that we could hear everything. She was extremely knowledgable and I learned a great deal about
not just the art of the Louvre but the history of the Louvre as well. Great tour!

French Wine Tasting in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

O Chateau is lovely and our 'host' was clearly an expert on French wine. The wines were lovely and I learned a great deal about the different wine regions in France. He was a times very hard to understand and as the room was full, also sometimes hard to hear.
