Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

My husband and I enjoyed our bike tour. Our guide Pete was great. He was funny, very knowledgeable of everything, and kept us on a good time table, had great recommendations for where to get food/wine/etc,and even with a varying group (different ages, I think the youngest was 9 and bike experience levels) he was able to make it interesting and a good experience for all of us. On the downside, the starting place (even with the guide printed on here) was hard to find, so I would give yourself plenty of time to get there at the early departure time! We were lucky that we had our cell phone with us and were able to call to get better directions but they did wait to leave to go to the train station, so we weren't left behind. Also, by the time we finished our biking tour and had see the fountain show at the palace, the line was ridiculously long. The que looked like it would take at least 2 hours to just get inside the door (it was about 3:30pm and I know we were there during peak tourist season), so we decided to skip that part. I am a little disappointed about that (we had other plans and still needed to take the train back to Paris) but overall it was a great experience and my husband and I are thinking of doing another bike tour again!

Moulin Rouge Show Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great show! I do highly recommend getting there at least an hour before the show starts, as the line was ridiculously long (we showed up a little over an hour before our 11pm show and by 1030pm the line was ridiculously long. They have no assigned seating and just because you show up early and are first in line does not mean you will get a great seat. We were 2nd to go in and the people in front of us (a group of 4) were seated on the balcony and we were seated near the stage on the ground floor. So they kind of just seat you wherever. The champagne was ok (it's a full bottle not the 1/2 they're saying it is). The show itself was great, very broadwayish and I guess I was expecting all of the women to be topless, but only the main "characters" (if you will) were. It was a great show and even my husband (who hates musicals and doesn't enjoy this sort of thing) enjoyed himself as well.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. It was nice to not have to stand in line waiting to get into the Louvre. Also, seeing as how we went in Aug during peak tourist season even going to the Louvre at 6:30pm at night it was crowded (I can't even imagine how crowded it must have been during the day!) But seeing as how it wasn't as crowded we were taken to all of the "must see" items and were given some nice history and background as well. I liked this tour because I can see how one could spend a whole day at the museum, it's HUGE! It was nice having someone who knew where to take us. I would definitely recommend this tour again for someone who is seeing the Louvre for the first time and would want to get a feel for the museum and being able to get around the crowds easier with a guide.

Amsterdam Dinner Canal Cruise

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The river cruise was phenomenal! We got the 3 course meal and it seemed so much more than that. There was free champagne upon arrival, unlimited wine/beer/softdrinks/water, a little pate type hourdouirve, bread (the spread that went with this was one of the best I've ever tasted!), my friend and I ordered this salmon appetizer that was huge!, I ordered chicken/my friend fish that both came with snap peas,potatoes and a salad. Dessert was a mousse (not the best honestly) and then followed by coffee and chocolates. It was a great meal. My friend and I are still talking about it! My only complaint was that my friend and I got a little lost trying to find the cruise because the street isn't well marked. Also, the company on the voucher said Linburgh tours or something as the point of contact but it was the Blue Boat Canal Cruises (or something like that). The voucher also said we'd get free entrance to the Casino near there but no one made mention of this, so I felt like that was mis-representation of the voucher. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone going to Amsterdam and I would definitely go again!

Amsterdam Pub Crawl

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The pub crawl experience was ok. I don't know why my friend and I felt that there would be a diverse crowd of people but she and I ended up being the oldest two out of the group we went with (we're in our early 30s and it seemed like over 90% of the people there were in their early 20s or so). We did spend a lot of time at the first bar, which was my favorite and ended up being the cheapest bar as well. Word to the wise, plan on spending at least 100 euro or more on drinks! Also, I was disappointed by the fact that it said 6 free drinks, which were really 6 free shots (and not real shots they were TINY!). The voucher reads 6 free drinks and I expected drinks, not tiny shots. Also, to get your shots you actually have to be on top of them, we got lost I also would recommend they provide a map of all of the pubs they're going to that way if someone gets lost they can find their way (hopefully lol). Our "guides" were also not that fun. They didn't care if anyone got lost or seemed to be having any fun at all either. My friend and I ended up leaving after the 4th bar because we were running low on funds and my friend felt uncomfortable being the oldest in the group. Overall we had a pretty good time and would consider doing it again.
