USS Midway Museum

San Diego, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This would have to be one of the best tours we have ever done. The people that has done the restoration and displays to date have done an excellent job of making the visit as real as possible. Highly recommended for anyone who visits San Diego, even if you are not interested in warships.

My Review

We have used the Hop on Hop off bus tours in several cities and have always found them to be a useful way of seeing some sights of a new city and being able to get off to look around.
The buses were of good quality and the guides excellent.
The day started out well with a bus starting at the Ticket office with an excellent guide, but we wanted to walk the Brooklyn Bridge so got off the downtown loop and changed to the Brooklyn Loop. This is where the trouble started. We were not told was that the buses marked were also operated by the same tour group, so we let several buses go past without getting on them because we were waiting for the “Big Red Bus” that we were told would come along. Eventually we were told that they were the same company and did get on a Bus.
The quality of the bus was poor and the PA system was not working correctly, we could not hear what the guide was saying. When we could hear him, he was more interested in attempting to gain the interest of the girl next to him rather than commentating. Between taking photos of the young lady, whilst standing and telling the passengers not to do the same, he did not tell the rest of the bus where the stops were. It was only after he was asked to tell us when we get to a particular stop did he let us know. Some stops were missed because of either traffic or police action, but the passengers were not informed, so people did not get where they wanted to go. While it is necessary to change a route that is not able to be followed, there was no effort to inform the passengers, and what if there were people waiting to be picked up? The maps were not followed and stops were missed. We wanted to go to Central Park, so after walking the bridge, got on a Bus that said we would go there “That’s on the Uptown Route” we were told, not by your map it isnt. Very Dissapointing.

My Review

This is the second time we have done this tour. We enjoyed it last time, but this time was just a little better because the pilot was more friendly and a character to boot. Well done Dave. The extra glass in the helicopter made the experience just that much better as well. Spectacular

San Francisco Bay Sunset Cruise

San Francisco, California

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This is one of those tours that either you will like it or you wont. The cruise takes a leisurely stroll around the bay with great information along the way. The food presented was both plentiful and of good quality. Definitely worth doing.

My Review

This tour takes you to some pretty historic places. Very good tour but the trip out to the Arizona was a bit rushed. I would have like to spend at least an hour on the Arizona, but it was 15 minutes. This is not the tour organizers fault however as that's just the way that the National Park run the tour. The remained of the tour was both informative and well run.
