Sydney Departure Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is such a practical and very much needed service. My plane arrived at 10:00 PM and there was only a family of 4 and myself being picked up at that late hour. We dropped them at their hotel on the way to my hotel. After 21 hours of traveling, I was glad there was not a bus full of people to drop off. I was tired after the long trip and ready to get to the hotel, check-in, and go to sleep. The driver was holding a sign with our name on it and was easy to find. The price was fair and I will to this again on my next trip.

Tobruk Australian Outback Experience including Aussie BBQ Lunch

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a fun half day and lunch was yummy! In the morning we had some damper bread which is Australia's traditional bread with honey and some Billy Tea. Both are made over the camp fire. The bread was delicious and I bought some Billy Tea at the gift shop to take home with me. The sheep shearing demonstration was interesting and the guide made it look so easy. We were taught how to throw a boom-a-rang and had fun doing it. They also threw in a tractor ride. The hotel pick up and drop off helps to make the day an easy day. This tour is worth the price and I highly recommend it.

Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Day Tour from Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful day in the Hunter Valley and worth the price of the tour. I highly recommend it. It included hotel pick up and drop off which makes transport easy. We went to 5 different vineyards throughout the day tasting wines. The third stop is where we ate lunch. The food was yummy and I gobbled it all down. They pour you about 4 sips of wine but you taste about 10 different types of wine so by lunch I was really enjoying myself and the food did absorb the alcohol. It was a fun day.One of the places had a cheese shop so I got some cheese and water crackers and brought them to the hotel with me to have a snack through the rest of my stay in Sydney. I wish I had gotten more cheese so that I would have had some to take with me on the plane for the long trip home.

Sydney Attraction Pass Including Taronga Zoo, Sydney Opera House, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I highly recommend this pass because you will save money. I got a 2 day pass and it was paid for by the end of the first day. It includes about 40 different attractions so it is easy to find things that you would be interested in seeing and doing. Just organize your day so that you know what area you want to go to and what you want to see in that area before you move on to the next area. When I went to the Darling Harbour Area, I went to the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, Imax Theatre, and Madame Tessauds Wax Museum. After I collected my Imax ticket, I had 45 minutes before the next show so I found a nice little restaurant to eat lunch at while I waited. Stretch your time. I also highly recommend Madame Tessauds Was Museum. If you are a person that likes wax museums you will want to see it. If you are a person that is not that wild about wax museums, you will want to see this one. It is done very well.

Sydney Tower Restaurant Buffet

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I highly recommend the tower restaurant buffet. I went there for lunch but I did not eat breakfast that morning because I wanted to be good and hungry. The food is excellent. Plus the tower spins slowly. It takes an hour for it to complete a total rotation. I got lots of good pictures. After lunch I ordered 2 glasses of wine and just enjoyed the view. It was winter in Sydney so there was not the big crowd and I was able to stay for an hour and a half. I had planned to go to Hyde Park after lunch but when I saw it from the Tower I decided that I could pass on doing that. It was a HUGE green park where I would have been doing LOTS of walking to see green. So I felt I had seen it without the wear and tear on my legs and went back to the hotel. I took an afternoon nap and woke up in time to ready to go to an Opera performance at the Opera House. It was a nice slow pace kind of day.

Sydney Showboats Cabaret Dinner Cruise

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I enjoy boats because I find them relaxing. The night lights of the city all up and down the harbor are beautiful and it is a very good way to see the city at night. That is the part that I enjoyed the most. The show was entertaining and the food not great but not bad but that is my taste buds.

2-Day Cork, Blarney Castle and Ring of Kerry Rail Trip from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This 2-day trip was the highlight of my stay in Ireland. I liked the Blarney Castle but because of a bad leg was not able to climb to the top to kiss the stone. Instead I walked over to the Woolen Mill and went shopping and ate lunch. Fair prices for good quality items. The B and B was the Fairview Guesthouse. A very lovely place to stay with breakfast and internet. There were many shops, restaurants, and pubs close by. There is also a nice woolen shop at the end of the street near the Pharmacy which I discovered when I had to get cold medicine. The second day was the Ring of Kerry trip and it was one full day of beautiful scenery. I enjoyed looking at the very green country fields plus seeing the mountains and bays together. This tour is a must do.

Skip the Line: Guinness Storehouse Entrance Ticket

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Guinness Storehouse was a pleasant surprise. Very modern. I was so glad that I had bought my ticket online because there was a long line of people outside when I got there and when I walked in the door there was another long line of people. I arrived at about 1:30 PM so I went straight to the 5th floor and ate lunch at one of the restaurants. There are several to choose from. The ground floor has a large gift shop where you can buy many items including pints of Guinness. I got three pints that the sales' girl wrapped in bubble wrap and it made it to Egypt in my check in luggage in perfect shape. Which means when I travel in December it will make it to the US. The green Dublin, Ireland, T-shirts will be a hit with the US family members come St. Paddy's Day when they get to wear the real thing. Not to mention the boxes of chocolate and cute candles for friends. The other floors were the museum part that explained the history and the making of the beer. My favorite site in Dublin. Get your ticket on-line before you go so that you can skip all the long lines and walk right in.

Private Tour: Kingdom of Dreams including 'Zangoora' Bollywood Show with Transport from Delhi

Delhi, India

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I always try to see something from the arts when I travel to any country. It could be a concert, ballet, or play. While I was in Delhi I went to Kingdom of dreams and saw the "Zangoora" Bollywood Show. It is a 2 1/2 hour show but it has a 20 minute intermission. The costumes and set design is good enough to win the Academy Awards. There is so much to look at on the stage because there is so much going on. There are movie theatre screens on both sides of the stage that also has something playing that goes along with what is happening on the stage. There are people and objects that kind of fly down from the ceiling to the stage from the back of the auditorium.I really enjoyed the show. I also liked the area where there are shops, restaurants, and food courts. The ceiling is very high and made to look like a sky and it does. I found that ceiling interesting. However, with as much money as we paid I felt that our lunch could have been at one of the restaurants instead of the food court and this is their need for improvement. That is why I did not rate this tour a five. Driver and guide was very nice.
