Ring of Kerry Rail Trip from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The trip was a journey of excitement and fun. The train ride was so comfortable and pleasant. The best part was that we were escorted the whole way until we met up with the Coach. Then the coach driver was also our tour guide. He did a great job! In this particular trip, the coach bus was overfilled. It should have been separated into two buses. This is a very popular trip. When every seat is taken on the bus, it becomes too uncomfortable and too many people to keep track of. This is the only viator trip I took where the entire 52 person bus was filled. All other adventrues have been much smaller buses and smaller groups. The weather was perfect. Our driver so delightful and so friendly. It is amazing how much the tour director (who usually drives the bus) shares about the culture, people and sights. Great job except the coach ride for the day.

Istanbul Airport Private Departure Transfer

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great greeters. Stayed with you until they were ready to leave. Coordinated well. worth it. Istanbul airport is extremely crowded and quite confusing. Difficult to maneuver without experts. Passport entries crazy with no structure. See signs for US visitors VISA. Only takes $20 bills. No change. Then after you get VISA, go to EXPRESS entry-for passport entry. Don't get in the long lines with others at that point.

Ephesus and the House of Virgin Mary Day Trip from Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Tour of Ephesus interesting. So much to see. You could spend an entire day there walking through the ruins. Amazing. The performance later in the day was short but cute. Get your camera ready.
House of Virgin Mary was very small. Some folks were praying and it prevented easy access to the small area. Wait for awhile to get inside and look around and feel the environment. Beautiful secret place in the mountains. Nice people run the exhibit on site.

My Review

Wow what a great day. The weather was perfect on the water. A wonderful slow cruise down the Bosphorus.
Open air boat. Bring a wrap in case it is a bit windy. Nice boat crew. The Spice market was so much fun. So many people everywhere. If you happen to go back on your own, if on a Saturday, that is market day. So many people to look at. FUN FUN! Tasting treats everywhere!

Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Awesome tour. Thorough and carefree. You can walk to all these places. About 30 minute walk to grand bazaar from Topkapi Palace. The Topkapi is right near the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. A full day if you want it to explore it over and over and just people watch.

Cappadocia In One Day Small-Group Tour from Istanbul: Devrent Valley, Ozkonak, Pasabag, Avanos and Goreme Open-Air Museum

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was a long drive from the airport to get to Cappadocia. I guess I should have arrived the day before to avoid the drive time. I flew in from Istanbul. The flight was short. The drive longer (it seemed).
Great lunch spot. Great food. I could have avoided the carpet pitch and sell. I already purchased my beautiful carpet in Istanbul (Asia side). Wow, crazy geology. Interesting views and landscape. Hiked through it to get up close to the sites. Definitely take the underground city tour. That was a bit creepy but incredibly ingenious way to survive...Bring some of your own drink and snacks for the hiking around. Layers. Great adventure. Nice tour guide and knowledgeable.

2-Day Santorini Experience from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The two hour fast ferry was not running in mid Oct. Ended up with the 9 hr journey to Santorini from Athens. Lots of port stops along the way. Arrived around 430p into Santorini. Not enough time to explore until the next day which was only a half a day before getting back on the ferry boat for the return trip to Athens, Need more time because of the travel. Suggest just taking a plane from Athens to Santorini.
Best gold shopping was Greco Gold. High quality, friendly and good value.

Vancouver North Shore Day Trip with Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was such a surprise. First we went to see the fresh snow drapped mountains and so many local enjoying the snowy and sunny day. A bit cold but you could go inside the lodge and shop, eat, and browse. I loved the funny tractor pulled sleigh but if you werent skilling that day, you could at least see a bit of the slopes. The bridge was so much fun-what an engineering feat. And that 360 cliff hanging ledge-really fun too. Great photo opportunities. Hot chocolate, lots of green tall trees and misty rain drops. Do it and be surprised.
