3-Day Singapore City Pass: Duck Tour, Night Tour, Marina Bay Tour and Universal Studios Singapore®

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This pass was great value as we got entry to universal studios, the SEA aquarium and the Singapore night zoo, added bonus was a city tour and night tour ( we didn't do the night tour as we just ran out of time)
Overall great value as it more than covered all the costs of these entries so I would recommend as a great money saver to buy ahead of time.

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This tour was so not worth the money....had to wait around for more than half an hour after the start time ( and that does not include the 15 mins prior that we arrived to make sure we were on time)
The guides just seemed to chat amongst themselves for this half hour and there were quite a fe people getting annoyed by the wait as it was in the hottest part of the day.
The guide gave some informative information but she would stop and talk for about 15 mins in the heat of the sun and then move on to the next spot and do the same. In st marks she stood at the front of the entrance blocking the way for other patrons and then just quickly moved through the rest of the church.
Throughout the lanes of Venice the guide was sometimes quite a way ahead as there was so many people on the tour and instead of talking so those at the back could hear where she was she would just walk without talking and then she had several conversations with people beside her which is fine however others in her group could only here her answers so not the question asked so was not ver informative...
We actually found this tour one the worst we did in all of Italy and actually did not return for the afternoon boat trip....overall a disappointment and got more out of just walking around with a guidebook as there was no extra or value added information given

Cinque Terre Hiking Day Trip from Florence

My Review

This was a great tour, the lunch at the restaurant was lovely, a beautiful seafood antipasto entree and then a pasta with pesto sauce ....this meal was one of the nicest we had in all of Italy. I was feeling aprehensive of this hike as they kept saying it was strenuous and that it was hard....there was several people that considered missing the hike part and just getting the train to the last town however even though it was a quite warm day and yes there was quite a few steps and lots of downhill walking over uneven ground at the end we felt it was not too hard at all and one girl that at lunch was very worried about actually being able to complete even she said it wasn't too bad...at monterossi the guide showed us where there is a bakery that does the area specialty fried bread....it is really like a puffed up donut with cheese lining on inside....delicious! Highly recommend you try one...they are only one euro and we went back for more twice....even though we had a big lunch prior. The boat ride back was a lovely relaxing way too finish the visit to cinque terre before trip home....this was a lovely way to get an overview of the area and we have decided we would love to spend a few days there to see more.....the scenery will not disappoint.

My Review

The morning tour had a lovely lady guide who was very informative and friendly, we visited Trevino fountain pantheon and St. Peter's basilica and she gave a great informative overview of these fabulous sites. There was only a few of us that had booked both the morning and afternoon tour with the lunch....the afternoon tour was hosted by Georgio an older gent who was fabulous with his historic stories and information for the colleseum and St. Peter in chains church...the entire group really were enthral led with all of his interesting stories....he was one of the better guides we had throughout all of Europe. Pick up and drop off to the hotel were an added bonus with this tour. All was really good EXCEPT...the lunch! This part of the tour was such a waste of money it was ridiculous....we were taken a to a little restaurant that had Italian cuisine and was very busy with other patrons eating what looked like lovely food....our small group were served a set menu of a spirelli pasta witha tomato sauce that was very average and then a dried out 2 slices of pork with a watery white sauce on top with CHIPS....we couldn't believe it ...no one in this restrain t was eating this food and it would not have cost them any extra to just give us a decent pasta with salad....all of us did not finish the food as it was just that bad...it was embarrassing dessert was a lemon gelato that was in a little plastic cup that was pre packaged and by far the worst gelato I have ever had.
My recommendation is to book the morning and afternoon tour but under NO circumstance get the lunch as you are better off just going anywhere else and ordering a meal yourself as it is just not worth getting this second rate cheap slop...
