The transfer went very smoothly. The driver arrived 10 minutes early an the traffic to Heathrow was light. Nice Mercedes sedan. Clean. No complaints. As a travel agent I will definitely use this service again for my clients.

Luxury Paris Day Trip with Champagne Lunch on the Eiffel Tower

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The highlight of this tour was the Eurostar from London to Paris. We reserved first class seating and we were not disappointed. Having stayed at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel we were connected to the train station and the Tube station. This was really great and since it was a very early morning train to Paris this is the best hotel to stay at . Very convenient. Unfortunately our tour guide, Pascal, did not not measure up to our expectations. Paris is very busy and if you are not paying attention to your tour guide you can easily lose sight of the guide. She did not hold up anything that would indicate to the group where she was (like an umbrella, flag, etc.) . This made it very difficult for the older people in our group. My husband and I are very active and had no problem keeping up with Pascal. However we felt very bad for the elderly members of our group so we lagged behind to make sure they were okay. Paris is known for pick pockets and they work in pairs. Some of these people were easy marks. The tour was not long enough to see much of Paris. We only had one hour and fifteen minutes in the Louvre! There was just enough time to find the Mona Lisa, run into a gift shop for a few gifts and take a few photos. Very disappointing. The bus driver was great as he maneuvered the streets of Paris. Paris drivers are nuts!! The traffic rules are only a suggestion. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was really a joke. They serve you what amounted to Happy Meals in glass containers that had been precooked and microwaved before serving . Not what one would expect as a Champagne lunch on the Eiffel Tower. Again, disappointing. The one hour cruise on the Seine was just okay. We cruised by several landmarks such as Notre Dame and the Louvre, but that was the extent of what we saw of them. I would strongly suggest that if you want a more in depth tour of Paris that you not book this one as it was very limited . I am a travel agent , and I paid full price like the rest of the group.

My Review

This was a wonderful tour! Our tour guide, Norma, has been leading tours for a long time and it showed. She was very attentive to everyone in the group of 42. She held up an umbrella to let people know where she was at all times and kept checking to make sure we were all present and accounted for. Top notch. The highlights were Buckingham Palace where we saw the changing of the guard and practice for the Queen's 60th Anniversary of her Coronation, the Tower of London with the Crown Jewels, St. Paul's Cathederal, the cruise on the Thames, etc. Lunch was at a pub and was adequate but not great. The tour departed from the Victoria Coach Station which was a very easy walk from the Victoria tube station. Really a delightful day but only a taste of London. Good to take this tour your first day and then a self guided one on the Hop on Hop off bus the next day. As a travel agent I would recommend this tour without hesitation.

London Airport Private Arrival Transfer

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I arrived in London and had to wait 90 minutes for my ride to arrive and that was only after a call to the transfer company who told me they had no record of my reservation. I was able to find another driver from the same company and had him get on the phone to explain that I indeed had my voucher and I was indeed paid in full. One of these drivers felt bad for me so he took me to my hotel. Otherwise I was looking at another 45 minutes wait for the driver to arrive. As a travel agent I will be hesitant to recommend although in fairness my post trip transfer to the airport was great.
