Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Both Ghent and Bruge are beautiful destinations of Belgium. If I would have to pick a favourite it would have to be Bruge, however in saying that we did not have enough time in Ghent to via off and explore the old city.
The tour that we were on was multi-lingual this seemed a bit frustrating as when you would stop to look at something you would be there for double the time which eventually eats into your free time to explore the city.
I would definitely recommend the optional canal cruise in Bruge, inexpensive, and was very well narrated by a local. Since Bruge is a city built around canals this sis the best way to see the sights especially if you are on a limited time frame.
Tour guide was knowledgeable however very ordinary.

Amsterdam Super Saver 3: City Tour, Zaanse Schans Windmills, Volendam and Marken Day Trip

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a must do tour the country side of the Netherlands marks no resemblance to the city centre Amsterdam.
A must is trying the local fish n' chips in Volendam - what can I say except for 'WOW' their fish soup is another 'WOW' factor.
From visiting the cheese factory to watching the making of the wooden clogs what an amazing experience, certainly not to be missed.
The only suggestion I would have for the company who organises these tours is to omit the city tour in the morning and just head straight into the country side so that you have time to look around after the demonstrations and not feel so rushed. Otherwise the places visited were fantastic, just wish we had more time in each location, especially in the lunch stop location.

Salzburg City Tour - On the Traces of Mozart

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We upgraded this tour whist in Salzburg as we had covered city highlights in the Sound of Music tour.
We did the salt mines, eagles nest and a lake region where the name escapes me at the moment. This is an experience not to miss, again another amazing day in Salzburg!

Original Sound of Music Private Tour

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a tour that I would highly recommend whether or not you are a Sound of Music fan or not. We were exceptionally fortunate to have a wonderful tour guide Natascha who knows Salzburg like the back of her hand.
Natascha also included highlights of the city and she made the Sound of Music highlights even bearable for the guys on our tour.
We had an exceptionally amazing day, Salzburg is an amazing city with so much to see and do.

Mozart Concert and Dinner at Stiftskeller in Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This experience was just amazing - the venue where you have dinner is upstairs from the original restaurant built in 803. You honestly feel you are set back in time. The concert was fabulous even if you are not a classical fan you cannot help but be taken by the experience.
The meal is also fantastic both presentation and flavours.
St Peters square is so majestic when lit up at night.
This is a must do experience whilst in Salzburg.

Day Trip to Lucerne and Engelberg from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We upgraded our tickets just before starting the tour on the day so that we could visit Mt Titilis.
I highly recommend visiting Mt. Titilis the snow was plentiful and the feeling being so high up in the mountains above the clouds was an amazing feeling.
I was disappointed as I was of the impression that we would have spent more time in Lucerne we barly had 40 mins there which was really insufficient time to explore the city. Given it was a full day tour and in that time we had in Lucerne we had to allow for having lunch. And you really don't spend time in engelberg it's at the base of mt Titilis, and that was fine however it would be good to be told the duration to be spent at each destination so that expectations are not disappointed. As one of the main reason I chose the tour was because we were going to Lucerne.
I would recommend doing each destination separately so that you don't feel rushed.

Romantic Horse and Carriage Ride through Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an awesome experience. Our driver was very informative highlighting all the landmarks as we travelled through the city. She even stopped and took photos of us with the most beautiful back drops. She was also kind enough to recommend a traditional Parisian restaurant named 'Chez Papa', which we went to after our carriage ride and it also was a great recommendation. Thanks for a great experience.
Oh and I forgot to mention the number of people who waved and took photos as we rode past! I highly recommend this tour.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We had dinner at the Eiffel tower which was ok, however the buzz was really that you are having dinner in an iconic landmark of Paris.
The moulin rouge show was ok the support acts are what really made the show. I would still recommend seeing the show, it's part of the Parisian experience. Just be prepared to wait in line for quite some time when you arrive there.
We kept the cruise tickets and did the cruise on another night, it's alot to fit into one night. Especially if you have been sight seeing all day and then you have the combo show dinner cruise it's a very late night.

Eiffel Tower Dinner and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Paris is the city of lights and what better way to see this city than by dinner along the Siene River.
I think I mixed up my reviews in any case I would recommend dinner by cruise at night over dinner on the Eiffel tower by night.
Certainly visiting the Eiffel tower is a must just be prepared for the long queues!
