Portland Sightseeing Tour Including Columbia Gorge Waterfalls

Portland, Oregon

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

In spite of the rain we had a wonderful time exploring the Portland area. Our guide Gunnar was the best ever. My husband raved about this tour being one of the best he had been on in years. We had lunch at a fabulous French bakery called St Honore" Boulangerie. Don't go if you are on a diet. After viewing the Columbia Gorge and seeing a 107 year old "working" post office we headed back into Portland. The weather cleared up and we visited Nob Hill, the Pearl district and the Pittock Mansion. We could not see Mt Hood due to the clouds however we got a good view of the bridges and rivers. Williamette and Columbia run through this area is a sportsman paradise. We highly recommend this tour. We want to go back in the spring and take it again.

Savannah City Hop-on Hop-off Trolley Tour

Savannah, Georgia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I find the Hop On Hop Off tours are the best way to get familiar with an area. Pookie did a great job showing us the older part of Savannah. The Thomas bridge is impressive. The city was well planned and today has 24 squares (parks) all geometrical to each other. Forest Gump was filmed here sitting a park bench eating his chocolates. Midnight in the Garden of good and evil was filmed here as well. I toured the Davenport house where an archeological team was digging in the back yard for artifacts. Very interesting trip.

Uluru (Ayers Rock) and The Olgas Tour Including Sunset Dinner from Alice Springs

Alice Springs, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is not the tour I would have liked but because of time it was the only one we could fit into our schedule. The EMU tour guides were wonderful and made the long drive entertaining. They fixed us a *** three star dinner at sunset. The sun never made an appearance the day we went so we did not get the wonderful pictures we had hoped for. Uluru is a wonder of nature and is to be respected and I was happy to see that some restrictions are in place to protect it.

Sydney Crimes and Passions Walking Tour of Kings Cross

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were the only ones on this tour. We loved it. Tthe guide was wonderful and gave us a complete overview of this area in the 20's and 30's. What a rough time it was too.
I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the seedy history of Sydney and the occupation which has supported many a town and still does.

Sydney Harbour Coffee Cruise

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a much better tour than the hop on/hop off cruise tour. We got more history about the area and it was a 2 hour tour and covered the entire harbor. I would recommend this tour..

Sydney Tower Eye

Sydney, Australia

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

My Review

I am glad I did it but I have been in higher buildings so that wasn't the draw for me. The views were wonderful but it took 10 minutes to walk all the way around and then down we came....Not a highlight in my opinion.

Sydney Combo: Hop-On Hop-Off Harbor Cruise and Hop-On Hop-Off City Bus Tour

Sydney, Australia

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

My Review

I wish now that we had only bought the hop on/hop off bus tour. The Harbor Cruise was not worth it for us. We did not want to get off anywhere so it was not as interesting a the Sydney Coffee Cruise. I would recommend only buying the bus tour.

Blue Mountains Nature and Wildlife Day Tour from Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a very diverse day. It started out in Sydney and gave us a horrific view of the morning traffic jam that every major city faces. Luckily we were headed out of town. The Blue Mountains were glorious. The lunch stop was in the lovely town of Leure but not long enough to explore the town and eat. A drive thru Olympic Park was interesting but the stop at Featherview Animal Park was the highlight. Do not miss this even if you go on your own. We saw more little penquins here than we did on Phillip Island and they were being fed by the keeper. The Wallabys are running around all over the place and there are more Koalas here than we saw in Kuranda.

Great Ocean Road Day Trip Adventure from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I was raised in Southern California and this road was much like Highway 1 along the Big Sur. I wanted to see the 12 apostles which I found out was originally going to be called The Sow and 11 pigs. However Australia did not want one of their most photographed areas to be remembered as such. The stop where we had lunch did not give us enough time to walk the boardwalk and eat.

Melbourne Super Saver: City Sightseeing Tour plus Phillip Island Penguin Parade

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The penguin parade was a disappointment. It was dark by the time the little penquins started coming ashore and we could not see them very well. The city tour and the Phillip Island tour was well worth it however. I would do this again.

Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip from Cairns

Cairns, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful tour. It was a lot of walking but worth the effort. The Skyride and the rain forest had beautiful sights of the area surrounding Kuranda. We showed our hunting skills by throwing a boomarang and a spear. We had decided that starvation would have soon set in if we were the hunters. It's harder than you think folks. The tour is diverse and every element offers something new and interesting. Be sure an take this tour when in Cairns.

Best of Brisbane Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

Brisbane or Gold Coast, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The city tours are a must if you want to get information on the area before you start out on your own. We only had one full day in Brisbane and this tour was comprensive and diverse. We did the harbor, the wheel and the city and because we were outside the area we rode the train. The trains are a wonderful way to get around in the larger cities.
