Full Day Tour of The Ring of Kerry

Killarney, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was a good trip. I recommend it if it is not raining. We had a beautiful weather on our trip. The nature in Ireland is very picturesque. There were two places where we had to pay for the entrance: the sheep dog demonstration (costs 5 EUR per person) and small Kerry Bog Village Museum (also costs 5 EUR per person). Even though these entrances are for a fee I recommend paying the fee and seeing these. Our guide gave us a chance to listen to Irish music and songs. We had a lunch (you pay for lunch) in the nice place with the good food and a good view.

Afternoon Killarney Highlights Tour

Killarney, Ireland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This tour had its unexpected advantages and faults. We were able to spend good time in every stop, walk around and take pictures. The road work prevented us from going to Gap of Dunloe. The guide said that if we went we would spend a lot of time in traffic and would not have enough time in other places. We visited Ross Castle, Muckross House and Gardens, Torc Waterfall and spectacular views of the famed lakes of Killarney. The guide did not really talk about these places. His explanations were so short that they practically did not exist. The tour was in a small van with air conditioning NOT installed. The temperature outside was 28 C, so with open windows we could manage. It would be much better with the air conditioning working. I still recommend this tour because the sites are very nice. If your guide gives you time to walk around and take pictures and enjoy all the beauty of each site you will be glad you went. We are glad we went.

Kilkenny City and Glendalough Day Trip from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We recommend this tour. Kilkenny is not very interesting, but Glendalough is simply amazing !
The guide did not really give us a lot of explanations in Kilkenny. He recommended that we take a 30-40 minutes tour on the small tour vagon for a fee of 5 EUR. I wish the guide better explained to us that there was nothing to do in Kilkenny. He said that if we visited caves, then we would only have an hour left in Kilkenny, and if we did not visit caves, then we would have had three hours in Kilkenny. If we knew that there was nothing to do after the first hour we would have gone to see the caves as well. If you take this tour I recommend that you visit the caves and then you still will have an hour in Kilkenny, which is enough to see the castle.

Munich City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

My Review

It was an average tour. I think the guided tour with stops where you go out of the bus with the guide and hear more details about each attraction would be a better option.

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The castles are beautiful. I recommend to see them. The guide on the bus, which we had, Elen, was less than average. We took this tour from Munich on Thursday, June 21. You will not have time to walk around the garden or see the cave in Linderhof. Keep in mind that Neuschwanstein castle has one side under construction. Be prepared to walk approximately 15 minutes up the hill to the castle. The shuttle or horses (if you choose to use one of these) will take you only half way up. The tour guide inside this castle will not impress you. You will hear a very bare minimum of explanations. You cannot photograph inside the castles.

Romantic Road, Rothenburg and Harburg Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I liked the sites and recommend to see them. We took this tour on Wednesday, June 20, from Munich. The tour guide on the bus, Elen, was less than average. We really regretted to have a bad guide, but the castle and the city were very pretty. Keep in mind that you will not be allowed to take pictures inside the castle. Part of the romantic road was closed, so, for that part we had to go on the highway instead of going through pretty small towns. There may be a heavy traffic on the way back (we had a bad traffic), so, plan your time accordingly. You may not be back in Munich exactly when you think you would be.

Khao Yai National Park and Elephant Ride Day Trip from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It was a very good tour. We visited the local food market and tried some local fruit, rode a carriage driven by Thai oxen, saw a waterfall in the National Park, saw monkeys, had a good Thai lunch and rode an elephant. I even rode on elephant's head, which was VERY exotic. Two aspects, which we did not like at all 1. we were picked up from the hotel 40 minutes later than scheduled 2. our guide did not speak a lot. We expected more information from him throughout the tour.

I recommend this activity in Buenos Aires. I liked both the show and the dinner. The hotel pickup and drop-off after dinner were included. Check the weather and dress accordingly. The show is in not indoors.

Buenos Aires City Sightseeing Tour

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Since Buenos Aires is a large city, it is worth going on this tour and seeing the different neighborhoods. There were just two very short stops. You will have to rush to see what there is to see during these stops. The guide did not give a lot of information. I felt it was very basic.

It was a good tour. The tour guide was very good too. We learned a lot about Chile and Santiago. I would add a couple of more stops and free time to see the places.

Istanbul Two Continents Half-Day Tour

Istanbul, Turkey

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

My Review
The actual tour from the time we boarded the tour bus was only two hours, not 4 hours. Even though the Dolmabahce Palace was open, the tour went to Beylerbeyi Palace. Beylerbeyi Palace is also very beautiful, but we really hoped to see the Dolmabahce Palace. The views are very nice and the palace is worth visiting.

Istanbul by Night: Turkish Dinner and Show

Istanbul, Turkey

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

My Review
The dinner was just OK, not bad, but nothing special. The entertainment was acceptable. Belly dancers we saw three different dancers were good, but folkloric dances were just OK. The transfer from and to the hotel was timely and very convenient. It makes sense to go only if you want to see the belly dancers.
