Mont Saint Michel Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A long and rather expensive day, but well worth the effort. For the cost, pick up from local hotels should be included, not added extra (especially as a significant discount for the trip was offered in the weeks before with no reimbursement for those who had paid full price). However, the abbey visit and the lunch were a day not to be missed and highly recommended. The scenery to and from the abbey on the 4-5 hour drive each way was also very interesting, and the on-bus commentary about the area was appreciated.

Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Combo: Sightseeing Bus and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

To get the most benefit from this, I would recommend setting a day aside to do all the routes without getting off, and leaving more in depth sightseeing for other days. Trying to combine it with visiting sites was rushed and not really efficient. The bus commentary was sometimes confusing, especially when stuck in traffic with endless music playing till the next point of interest appeared. However, it gave a good introduction to the city.

Paris by Night Illuminations Tour and Paris Moulin Rouge Show

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The bus tour was interesting, although didn't have any photo stops - best approached as a visual tour to be appreciated without worrying too much about a camera. The Moulin Rouge show was absolutely spectacular - all I expected and more. Non-stop entertainment of the highest standard for apporox 2 hours. Well worth seeing, as Parisian as the Eiffel Tower.

An unforgettable day of spectacular scenery, from the drive along Lake Como to Tirano in Italy, the scenic train in Switzerland, and the return from St Moritz in late afternoon. Lunch was excellent and included drinks and attentive service. A trip not to be missed.

Siena and San Gimignano Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very interesting and enjoyable day in two different places. There was a lot of walking over steps and hills, and a lovely lunch available (not included) in Siena. Enough time to wander around the streets of both places, although the visit to the Duomo in Siena was a bit rushed. Highly recommended addition to any Tuscan experience.

Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Tuscan Hills and Italian Cuisine

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

So much fun! Highly recommended for anyone game enough to try, We drove for several hours along narrow lanes, through vineyards and up to several excellent vantage points overlooking Florence. The meal was typically Tuscan cheeses, cured meats, greens and bread with wine or water. Stefano was an excellent guide, leading in a car ahead with walkie talkie giving directions and very informative about the local area and cuisine when not driving. A great and different way to spend an afternoon.

Assisi and Orvieto Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very full day, and a very enjoyable one. The morning was spent exploring the fascinating town of Orvieto (the tour guide informed us that from April this beautiful city will be dropped from this tour, which is such a pity). After a delicious lunch along the way, the rest of the day was in Assisi with the expert services of a local guide. This tour gave so much more than trying to organise it independently.

My Review

Excellent introduction to a wonderful city. Ricardo called the day before to confirm pick up location, then showed us spectacular views of the city as well as sites of interest, combined with a lot of information about Naples. Meal was delicious fresh pizza, also with information about its origins. Highly recommended
