Koh Hong Island Tour by Speed Boat from Krabi

Krabi, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Breathtakingly beautiful. We actually visited 3 different islands and had plenty of time to relax, swim and enjoy them. The guides were very helpful and efficient. The large launch looked like it was brand new. Lunch was good - ate it at tables under the trees with the most magnificent view. Beaches weren't crowded as the can be at more popular destinations. Highly recommend this very well organised tour.

Full-day Krabi Hot Stream and Rainforest Tour

Krabi, Thailand

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

My Review

Quite an interesting tour but our tour guide was difficult to understand, gave minimal information and unclear directions. He was very different to any other tour guide we had encountered in Thailand.
The hot stream is very crowded and doesn't look as good as this. The 2 km walk to the Emerald Pool was interesting and it was lovely swimming in the pool. (wear your bathers under you clothes). The Tiger Temple was also interesting - walk past the 1227 step climb to the top and go up the next set of steps - 220 steps - apparently good views and things to see. All on our tour missed it as our guide disappeared and his instructions were so poor we all, independently, went to the wrong place.

Don't miss this excellent trip. You visit 3 different and interesting islands on a replica galleon. Sailing on the deep blue Adriatic is superb. Atmosphere on board is great - all ages join in singing when fun band plays.(guitars and piano accordion.) Fish lunch provided on board. If toy only have time for 1 island trip do this one.

Island of Korcula with Wine Tasting Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

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

My Review

We had done other island trips so found this a bit repetitive. Korcula town is mini, more run down Dubrovnik. Guide talked way too long. Have to drive over 2 hours in bus to get to ferry - ferry trip just 20 minutes. Wine trip is on mainland - not on island as we thought - so you only get to see the town on Korcula. The Elafiti Island trip is far, far better.

Excellent tour - bus trip interesting and informative, Port Arthur tour excellent, plenty of time to explore on your own. ! didn't expect Port Arthur to be so beautiful - some lovely gardens and impressive buildings. I learnt a great deal - there were 'horrors, but there was also a rehabilitation program of training in trades. Very interesting and enjoyable day.

Good tour, but sites limited in Granada - the church is amazing. The day we went in September was over 43 degrees and stifling so that may have influence my opinion!

Óbidos, Nazaré, Fátima and Batalha Day Trip

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Very good day trip. Obidas was great. You walk in a circle round this beautiful old town - when you go into the town everyone is told to go left. Take the right hand lower path and go anti clock wise. This way you see all the beautiful sites first without the crowds and leave the shops till last. Fatima and baltha when interesting even if you are not religious.

Don't miss going to Sintra - absolutely gorgeous area and the castle is quirky and nothing like the usual castles. It is set in beautiful, extensive grounds. The Estoril coast was good too - suggest you take the lunch option - was quite good and quickly served.

We had limited time in London, so we thought the fast track was well worthwhile. We were taken straight on, avoiding a very long queue, and had only eight people in our capsule. The views were fantastic - so good we all wanted to go around again.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
There are 18km of passages and queues a mile long, so this is the best way to see the Louvre. Our guide was excellent and took us to the key points. We saw tons and loved it. It would have taken us a whole frustrating day to do the same thing ourselves.

Paris, France

My Rating

My Review
It was a good show, but not fantastic. I have seen better in Melbourne, and I was disappointed that they didn't do the traditional cancan. I suggest you go to the later show - it's the same as the dinner show and much cheaper. Paris Illuminations was OK.
