Singapore Shared Departure Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Though it says it's a shared transfer, I was the only one in the vehicle. It was very convenient though and I have no complaints. The driver was right on time, picked me up from my hotel, helped with my luggage, took me straight to the airport, and told me where in the airport I needed to go to check in. Very helpful and I highly recommend this! :)

Sentosa Island Tour with Singapore Cable Car and Optional S.E.A Aquarium

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A tour guide is a crucial part of a tour but I found that ours didn't really give us much insight on Sentosa at all, just basically showed us where things were and what time to meet him and he didn't even want to ride in the same cable car as the rest of us or sit at our table for lunch! Having said that though, Sentosa itself is a beautiful place, lots to see and do. This is a pro and a con though since you want to see and do all you can before having to meet at the bus to go back, but there isn't a lot of time for that. I did the Aquarium option which I now regret as it was an alright aquarium but it gave me almost no time to explore other things before having to get back to the bus, whereas those who didn't do the aquarium got more time to explore while I was there.

Singapore Zoo, Night Safari or River Safari Admission Ticket with Round-Trip Transfer

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I did the Night Safari option on this and it was great having the round-trip transfer since it's quite far away and a cab would've been super expensive! They pick you up from your hotel and take you to the Chinatown visitor centre, where you meet the other shuttle bus that takes you to the Night Safari. After the Safari, you get dropped right back at your hotel. The only things I think could've been improved upon are timings - by the time you arrive at Night Safari, the crowds are already in full swing and you have to wait in line to get on a tram for almost an hour (even with a ticket!), straight after which you head to the night show, and then to see the fire breathing performance. There isn't a lot of time to explore the park before or after the tram ride (which would've been cool), nor is there a lot of time to get food if you want to see everything and make it back to the bus on time. I thought I'd get food when I got back to my hotel but everything except McDonalds closes by 11pm so maybe take snacks with you!

Singapore's Chinatown Food Tour

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Chinese lady who was our tour guide gave us a great insight on Chinatown, its history and how it came to be the way it is today which made it so much more than just a food tour as we got to learn about Chinatown as well, and you get a chance to meet and greet with all the other people on the tour as well. We went for a breakfast tour in the morning and had some things I've never tried before but which were quite nice - just be prepared to experiment with food, and be prepared that the markets don't always smell like roses! :)

Singapore City Pass: Singapore Flyer, Duck Tour and Food Trail

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

These are three separate attractions that you have a pass for, as opposed to one tour that takes you to all three. However, in saying that, the Singapore Flyer offers great panoramic views of Singapore and you can even see a bit of Malaysia, the Duck Tour gives you a good background into Singapore city and some of its attractions and buildings (not to mention that driving straight into the water is a cool feeling!), and you get a $5 voucher to spend at the Food Trail which is like a food court of traditional Singaporean and Asian dishes.

Singapore Shared Arrival Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I highly recommend this! Although they say it's a shared arrival transfer, I ended up being the only one in the vehicle both from the airport to the hotel, and vice versa. It's also great since you pick up your luggage, and come out into the welcome area where there is someone standing there with your name on a piece of paper, they take you straight to the vehicle and right to the door of your hotel while helping with your luggage too. It was especially great for me since I was travelling alone and didn't know where to go in such a big airport so having someone meet me there was great.

Parasailing at Disney's Contemporary Resort

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Awesome one-of-a-kind experience! I did a solo adventure but there was also a couple on the boat with me doing tandem parasailing. They get you all out on the water and set up the parasail, then you stand in position once they've secured your harness and off you go! For those who are afraid of heights or sudden movements, you can still totally do this as it's very gentle to take off and land (you barely even notice it!) and the restraints are secure so you never feel like you're going to fall or get hurt.

Jet Ski Adventure at Disney's Contemporary Resort

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Loads of fun! I went for the tour option rather than the free-ride one and I was the only one on the tour on the day. The tour lady showed me how to operate the jet ski and once we were in the water we zoomed over to the back of Disney's Magical Kingdom, got some history on the area, saw where the old Animal Kingdom used to be, and also got some free riding time in. Jet skis are also just super fun to ride!

Orlando Attractions Roundtrip Transfer

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Make sure you check which attractions are included on this as most hotels in Orlando offer free transfers to the big theme park attractions anyway so I had bought this voucher to get to and from a dinner show. I was told that they don't go to the dinner shows I wanted to see, nor could they go from hotel to hotel (as I had watersports activities booked at the Disney Contemporary resort) that I could also have used this voucher for. More hassle than it was worth really...

Treasure Tavern Show in Orlando

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great show! Funny (although definitely R18!), the very friendly waitresses are part of the show and get right into the dancing, and you get seated at a table with a bunch of other dinner guests so it's a great way to meet new people. It's also a very interactive show as I even got pulled up on stage to dance at one point! Highly recommend it :-)

Orlando Airport Roundtrip Shared Transfer

Orlando, Florida

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Super convenient, especially since I was travelling alone and didn't know my way around! Just got my luggage, went downstairs to their counter, they gave me two tickets (one for each trip), and then we were on our way. It's a good way to see other places in Orlando too and meet other people.
