Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Safari was great! Driver picked us up at our hotel and took us out to the Arabian Desert, where he very skilfully drove us through the dunes. The dinner and dancing performance in the desert were brilliant, with people sitting on cushions around low tables in a ring of tents around the centre stage.
New York City, New York
Fantastic trip! We were collected from NYC close to our apartment and taken out to the airport and handed our boarding passes. We were met in Buffalo by our tour guide, who drove us around to various sites on both sides of the river. He was very knowledgable and spoke several languages. The tour was a good mix of guided and free time. He returned us to the airport and gave us boarding passes, and we were again collected at in NYC and returned to our accommodation. Only negative is that it was a long day - very early start and very late finish - with a fair bit of waiting at airports (especially since returning plane was delayed by fog at NYC); but I guess if you only have one day available this is how you would do it.
Las Vegas, Nevada
One of the highlights of our trip! My husband thought the helicopter view of the Grand Canyon was spectacular, whereas my daughter loved the horseride (an optional extra at the ranch). Lots of opportunity to talk to cowboys and hear country music performed live. Only comment is that although the helicopter covers the area surrounding the Grand Canyon really well, it probably doesn't show you the deepest parts of the canyon itself - these might be seen on another tour.
