Wicked the Musical Theater Show

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was very easy to locate the theatre, and our seats were acceptable. Though I would not agree that the view was unobstructed, as advertised.
The show was simple fantastic - the singing, dancing, lighting and costumes were impressive.

Montserrat and Cava Trail Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide Felliciano was charming and funny. He drove us from central Barcelona out to Montserrat and gave a quick run-down of the town on the mountain. His suggestions of buying picnic ingredients from the farmer's stalls then walking up the mountain to admire the view were great. We then drove to the Freixenet winery for a guided tour with many other people. This was very interesting, including the history of the winery and a train ride through the grounds. I would recommend this tour as it was the highlight of our trip!

Barcelona Half-Day Bike Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The bike tour left from central Barcelona and the departure point was easy to find. Our tour guide gave an interesting perspective on the history of Barcelona and we learned about Catalunya's quest for independence. The bike tour was mixed on roads and bike paths, but there were lots of crowds to negotiate.

Seville Night Tour with Tablao Flamenco Show

Seville, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Flamenco show was great, a real highlight of our trip. If you are travelling around Spain, I recommend this flamenco show because it includes hotel pick up and drop off, and the flamenco show finishes late at night.

Seville Bike Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was just the two of us on this bike ride around Spain. Our guide was an ex-Brit, fluent in English of course. He took us on a very safe route with an emphasis on avoidance of the traffic. The bike ride along the river was particularly enjoyable. His explanation of important history events was also very enjoyable. I would highly recommend him.

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Our bike tour guide was kind, but his voice was quiet and his English a little poor. In a group of 10 other cyclists, it was impossible to hear his commentary on the sites that we visited. This tour includes alot of negotiation of crowded pedestrian bike paths and also riding on roads congested with traffic. I would not recommend this bike tour.

Private Entrance to Széchenyi Spa in Budapest with Optional Massage

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Difficult to find the private entrance and the person who greets you is not particularly helpful or nice. The tickets cost less and there aren't really any queues, even on a lovely summers day. You should just buy the tickets at the door to save money.
The masseuse was very angry at a colleague and so was rude to us during the massage. However, later, she apologised for her behaviour.

Just the 2 of us on this tour, so our personal attention from the guide was appreciated. The guide's English was impeccable and her company was lovely. The bike tour mostly includes bike paths separate from the roads. I would recommend this tour.

Definitely a highlight of our trip to see this quaint town. It is a 4h drive there and back from central Paris. There is an interesting 1h guided walk on arrival in Brugge, then the remainder of the time in Brugge is free for you to find lunch, go shopping and soak up the ambience. Highly recommended

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent company from our tour guide Marion. She knew the ins and outs of the Nice market, and shops and even kindly invited us to join her and her fiance (probably now husband - congratulations!) for a drink. The final stop was a Provencial food store with a very friendly store manager who was patient with us as we sampled her goods, and even assisted us by accompanying us to the post office to buy a box that we could fit all our wares into for transport back home. Extremely highly recommended!

Monaco and Eze Small Group Day Trip from Nice

Nice, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Small group tour with some eclectic individuals. The tour is very strict with timings so if you are not punctual, you will get into trouble! Eze is a lovely cliffside village with souvenir shops and beautiful views of the ocean. Monaco is very opulent, as you would expect, and we watched the changing of the guards ceremony and enjoyed an Italian Lunch. Our tour guide was charming and her English was very good. I would recommend this tour.

Paris Villages Bike Tour

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The bike tour was mostly avoidant of traffic and used bike paths, but there was about 20% of the time spend near cars on the roads. Our tour guide was patient but the number of people in the tour was too large, so it because difficult logistically to be waiting for other members of the tour as they got stopped by traffic lights.

Dinner and Show at the Moulin Rouge with Hotel Pickup

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We booked this tour as it included hotel pick up and drop off, and we were not keen to negotiate the metro on one of our first nights in Paris at 1am! The driver was impeccable.
However, the dinner was ordinary (we ordered the Belle Epoque menu) and you could certainly get a better dinner from many surrounding restaurants. The service for the dinner was rude and pushy and they ignored my request for a vegetarian Entree.
The show was extremely ordinary as well. The best part was the acrobats that entertained the crowd whilst the dancers were changing costumes. As a dancer myself, the show was poor in quality with simplistic choreography and dancers that were poorly synchronised and poorly coordinated. The costumes are garish, please note that the dancer's breasts are completely exposed throughout the entire performance. This show is not suitable for children. A commercial photographer will sell you a photo of yourself for 50 Euro. This was an extreme lowlight of our trip and an extreme waste of money, all up costing about $900 AUD for 1 night.

It was a very big group that we joined for the walking tour, so it was logistically difficult. We also got caught in the rain unfortunately. Our tour guide was kind and informative.
