San Francisco, California
This tour was a disapointment, not so much the sights but the tour guide and the van. Firstly the guide was late picking us up and we were the first pick up. By the time he got to the last pick up we were behind schedule. The van was so rattely we couldn't even hear what the guide was saying. Not that he spoke terribly much any way. He was an elderly man and a tad dodery. The comentary was poor. A few times when asked a question he didn't know the answer. We stopped several times but did't have enough time to actually enjoy the views. We spent so much time driving around the streets seeing thousands of houses with bay windows. I feel if we had not spent so much time looking at bay windows we might have had more time at the bigger attractions. We drove around some fabulous building in the city, but didn't stop to take a look or photos. We stopped at the office towards the end and all the clients were given their tickets to the "Alcatraz" except us and another couple. When asked why he didn't know and just said you pick them up at the pier. We were dropped off at Sausalito and because we were so late, we didn't really have time to have a good look around before we had to get to the "Bay Criuse" ( which as it turned out was just a ferry ride!!!) We only had 10 mins to get from Pier 1 to Pier 33 or 39, which was impossible to do by foot, fortunately we managed to get a trolley bus and made it intime to catrch the boat to Alcatraz. So all in all very disappointing.
Niagara Falls, Canada
If you are not scared of heights I highly recommend you to do this. I am scared of heights and had never been up in a helicopter before. And I never will again. My husband sat in the front and throughly enjoyed it. I sat in the back clinging on for dear life. I did open my eyes and see the magnificent veiws of Niagara falls. It was a pity that it was raining the day we went up. The pilot was very good with his knowledge of the falls and surroundings.
What an amazing tour. A must do when in Vancouver. The tour guide Kohlad, made the day. He was very good with his comentary, very funny, very polite and went out of his way to make the day very enjoyable.
