Godollo Castle Day Trip from Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I liked the guide and the tour, Hotel pickup and other parts were well organized. What I did not like was how short it was, I wished we had more than ten minutes free time at the end as there wasn't enough time for shopping. It was raining so I was happy to skip the garden but if it was sunny there would not have been enough time.

great way to see the city! I like how you could start anywhere and the pick ups were every half an hour. I was thrilled that when the company was told by their people on the ick up points that it was busy they sent out another bus. All staff I encountered were very helpful.

Rome Super Saver: Colosseum and Ancient Rome with Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent!!!! This tour was split into ancient Rome in the morning which was incredible to learn about. after a nice lunch break on your own you get to see the sights of Rome. Busy day with lots of walking but a great way to get a feel for Rome. I was pleased and surprised by how much was able to be put into one day. Very well organized and knowledgeable guides.

Pisa Half-Day Trip from Florence Including Skip-the-Line Leaning Tower of Pisa Ticket

Florence, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Was not as impressed, this was a hurry up and wait tour. I felt like we had to run to each spot and then wait. I did not like how poorly organized it was nor did I like the time wasted walking in from the bus lot. All we saw was the tower of Pisa which was great but everything else was a let down. Note to others you are not allowed to carry anything inside the tower including a purse, there is a secure storage locker free to guest but it is still another line to wait in.

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was the best tour I was on in Italy. The tour was extremely well organized, I was always aware of what the schedule and expectations were. Our guide, Sandra, was incredible!!!!!! She would repeat the instructions many times in many different ways to endure everyone was on the same page. The sights were incredible and a great taste of Tuscany. While it is the highlights and I could have easily spent more time, it wasn't a rush to take a picture and then move on. Walkabout is a great company and I hope to use them again.

Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The gondola ride was incredible and worth doing. it is not a private tour but in a group of 6. If your group is not 6 the company will combine your group with another. I enjoyed the experience as a private tour can be at least 80 euros. the walking tour was not as much fun due to a large group and our guide had a very heavy accent making it difficult to understand her. I was also disappointed in the lack of organization before, during and after, such as after we got off the gondola ride we were not told if we should walk back to the starting point or wait there for the walking tour.

Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour, I loved it and learned a lot. I was very impressed that this tour was overbooked so instead the company provide two guides so we could have our small group tours. Both guide worked together easily on the bus and separated while walking around to provide a excellent tour. While interesting the Crypt can be a bit much for those with an active imagination as it is a lot of bones. I would not only recommend to others but will happily go again.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A nice trip and lunch was very good. I did not like that the tour was done in 4 languages all day. While walking around Pompeii a 5 minute story took 20 minutes and people were bored and kept walking off to explore on their own. I did not like all the standing around waiting time such as the 2 hour walk through Pompeii was in reality 30 minutes spread over 2 hours due to all of the waiting and repeating. A great trip that I wish had been in a smaller group with only 1 language spoken.

Great tour, and skipping the lines was well worth the cost. The guide was well informed and tried to convey their passion to us. A great experience as the Vatican is important and should be visited but with the crowds it is much nicer with a guide.

Nazareth, Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee Day Trip from Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I enjoyed the tour guide. I liked seeing the northern parts of Israel and hearing stories about its history. Many great photo opportunities. I like the built in shopping stop it was only a stop not the focus of the trip. The only part I did not like was the trip was 45 minutes late leaving as hotel pick ups were later than the scheduled time. Instead of extend the day as the tour company was late the day was rushed.
Tip** Bring snacks since lunch by the Sea of Galilee while good is very late.

Day Tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Guides was great in both Jerusalem and Bethlehem. (separate guides for each city) They were very helpful and I really enjoying their knowledge of the city and answered as many questions as they could. We had a short wait for the bus to pick us up, instead of having dead time we were able to shop while waiting.
Only part I did not like was hotel pick ups were very late and caused the day to start later than planned.

City of David and Underground Jerusalem Day Tour

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The guide was amazing and very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a small group of 4 people on the trip and it was arranged to more to our likes than a large groups would be. Very interesting sights!
There was not Underground Jerusalem on the tour we were above ground the entire time. We did go through 1 tunnel in the City of David but that was only 15 minutes of the entire day which I felt was disappointing. I also did not remember the entrance fee to the City of David was not included in the tour and was surprised by this. Good tour but not as described.

Masada and the Dead Sea Day Trip from Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Masada and the Dead Sea was my favourite part of visiting Israel! Masada is a very interesting sight to walk around and listen to the history. It is a medium amount of walk but mostly on flat ground. We took the cable car to the top and down for more time spent sightseeing. We were also given time to float and mud up at the Dead Sea. Great Day!!
The part I did not like was the tour was late leaving and we were rushed at Masada. As well as a long shopping stop for Dead Sea products. I would wish to have more time spent sightseeing than waiting.
*** Tip Bring snacks as lunch is scheduled for very late in the day. ***

View this tour as more of a taste of each stop instead of experiences. Great tour and great guides, we had a wonderful day just a bit rushed since so much is packed into 1 day. Premium Tours was a bit crazy starting off, I would only marked them down of not clearly labeled meeting points and a hectic start of the day.

Best tour of my trip to Scotland. Wonderful stops and being with a small group is much better than the large tours. Michael was the best guide ever and went above and beyond a tour guides duty to make our day special. He had a passion for Scotland and the highlands and told stories of its history to help us love Scotland as well. Use Rabbie's tours for everything you do in Scotland.

Excellent tour, an amazing way to see Ireland. The guides do a great job of giving detailed information about not only the places but when and where to meet back up. Unfortunately trying to fit so much into one day we had to leave each location before I was ready. Highly recommended and a must do while in Ireland.

Dutch Villages and Countryside Bike Tour from Amsterdam

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I really enjoyed this trip and I loved seeing the countryside. Biking through the countryside felt like the more authentic way to see Holland the a bus. While this is a great trip it is not for everyone. This is a long bike ride that while worth it is physically demanding and very tiring. Also being Holland it is usually raining, thankfully the tour does offer rain coats to wear. If you are in good shape this is a great trip.

Iain was an amazing guide, he was full of information that ranged from historiacial fact, sarcastic commentary, to local fun stuff. He knew so many tourist stops as well as local hideouts.There was plenty of time to explore Munich's outskirts. Great length and plenty of breaks with the opportunity to have a drink stop.

I loved this tour, Salzburg is beautiful!!! Maxine is a great guide, she was so clear in letting us know what the times and where to meet together. She was always ready with suggestions and information.I liked that we started with a guided tour and then were given free time to explore. Unfortunately there is not enough time to do everything you want to do. I would rename this tour taste of Salzburg.

I liked seeing Munich and this is a great way to do it. Unfortunately the commentary is live in English and German. It depends on the guide you get how much is in English spoken and how easily you can understand them. Several of the guides spoke great English and were full of knowledge. Others were difficult to understand and did not give as great of a tour.

I enjoyed seeing three different islands. I was disappointed that of the 11 hour day we spent only 3 and 1/2 hours on the islands. The rest of the time was spent on the boat. I also didn't like that we had to over pay for drinks at lunch instead of drinks being included in the price of the meal.
