Tour/Activity

Flamenco Show at Torres Bermejas

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

So I went with the viator option of a drink and show for two. The show did not disappoint and the dancers were mesmerising, however am glad we did not dine here as the menu did not look particularly appetizing. In addition, the website states the show starts at 9pm and ends at 12.30am which is not true as the show ended at half past eleven. In addition, for our drinks we ordered a sangria each as part of the viator option and a sprite on top. They charged us an extortionate 6 euros 66 cent for the sprite- absolutely obscene!!

Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a great tour- especially if you have limited time in San Fran.

You get to drive through all the neighbourhoods. The Golden Gate Bridge was a highlight, as was the view from Twin Peaks.

So glad the Alcatraz tour was included because it was fully sold out on the day. The Alcatraz tour is truly amazing!

Highly recommended!

Yosemite National Park and Giant Sequoias Trip

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Though it's a trek from San Francisco and a long day, every minute is worth it!!

We had a great day at Yosemite with our guide, Ben. We began with the Giant Sequoias hike which was amazing! This was followed by a visit down to the park valley and we stopped at several viewpoints for some amazing photo shots.

We then had independent time during which most people visited Yosemite Falls.
On the way back, Ben even stopped at Treasure Island so we could get a view of San Francisco by night.

Well worth it!

Red Rock Canyon Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was amazing!!

Though the Grand Canyon is overwhelming and truly magnificent, I actually preferred the trip to Red Rock Canyon.

Our guide, Don, was a total sweetheart and soooo lovely. He went out of his way to ensure we had a great time, from stopping at the 'Fabulous Las Vegas' sign for a photo stop to learning our names and offering to take our photos. He even suggested places for dinner, which we actually ended up going to.

The Canyon is amazing and very tranquil. I can't believe so many people skip it when in Vegas- highly recommended!

Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam Day Trip from Las Vegas with Optional Skywalk

Las Vegas, Nevada

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

My Review

We were the last bus to leave out of the lot in the morning and as such, instead of going to the Hoover Dam first and then the Canyon, we did it the other way round.

The Canyon itself is very impressive and the road trip there was good. You are basically given around 4 hours at the Canyon which is plenty if just doing the Skywalk but, if you are doing the boat and helicopter too, you may have to move through it quickly.

The main reason that I gave this such a low rating is because though the ad clearly states that you will have a '15 minute stop from the pedestrian walkway at the Hoover Dam', we did not get this.

Our bus driver just drove through the Hoover Dam park and all you could get was a fleeting shot of the bridge and dam. No explanation was given as to why.
