Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great behind-the-scenes tour of the Doge's palace, taking us into and past the cells, then up to the higher levels to view the offices. Our guide was very knowledgeable and pitched her information at just the right level. Probably the best part was that we were the only group going through this tour, so we had plenty of space to enjoy our surroundings, as we moved from room to room and up and down the narrow stairways. Definitely one of the best tours we've ever done.

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour had a good balance of walking around the many little streets behind St Mark's and showing us a side of Venice that many tourists don't see. Then there was the visit to St Mark's, which was quick, but enough for us to appreciate its splendour and its problems with water and 'acqua alta'. Our guide, Marina, is a young, enthusiastic Venetian who speaks English very well. She gave us the additional bonus of a Venetian view of life in this remarkable city, which is otherwise difficult for tourists to hear. She also explained the mysteries of the whole gondola experience, how one becomes a gondolier and so on. We very much enjoyed this tour.

Venice Private Arrival Transfer by Water Taxi: Cruise Port to Central Venice

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The company representative was waiting when we disembarked the boat, the water taxi arrived 10 minutes later, the driver helped four of us to load ourselves and all our luggage, and then took us to our door! Perfetto! Money well spent!

Private Tour: Rome Sightseeing by Vintage Fiat 500

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a fantastic evening. As the crazy, daytime traffic had died down, we moved around Rome quite easily, with frequent stops where we got out to enjoy the view and take photos. Our drivers, Virginia and Paolo, were most competent at getting us around and responsive to our requests as to what to see. Paolo, in particular, is a passionate Roman who more than knows his stuff and tells it well. We could have listened to him all night. Virginia is charming, but does not speak much English, which is a pity. All in all, a great adventure.

Singapore by Night Tour with Dinner along Singapore River

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour started with a minibus pickup from our hotel at 6.00pm (although the driver arrived 10 minutes earlier than that). He took us to the Singapore Flyer, where we waited to board the bus that took us on the tour. We began with a some sightseeing around Singapore before a one hour stop at a restaurant at Boat Quay, where we sat in tables of eight and were served a very nice five course meal. This was followed by a drive to the Bugis Markets where we had half an hour to wander around a very big market place selling everything imaginable. After that, we headed off to Raffles hotel where we enjoyed a Singapore Sling in the upstairs 'Long' bar, with live music pumping and a crowd already installed. We enjoyed the tour - it was a good way to spend an evening out in Singapore. The tour leader was informative and helpful throughout and added to the enjoyment of this tour.

Paris Shuttle Departure Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were collected at the pre-arranged time from our hotel. There were already a number of other passengers in the bus. The driver was very professional and, after picking up another passenger, took us directly to Terminal 2 at CDG. As it is less than half the cost of a taxi, we will certainly use this service again.
