Munich WWII Combo: Dachau Concentration Camp and Third Reich Walking Tour

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Good historical tour. The guide for Dachau was very knowledgeable and was able to present additional information. A little trouble keeping the group together...not his fault. Buses to and from the train station were jam-packed. Walking tour guide was exceptional in his knowledge of this history! He really walked us around the city and presented some good information in a way that had us hanging on every word!

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This guide really took good care of us! He had an excellent grasp of the history of the castle, presented some options for getting around once we got to the castle. I can't say enough about the skip the line tours, especially when you are traveling during high season.

Maxine was amazing! Very knowledgeable about her subject! It was a rainy day for us but she managed a really nice walking tour moving from one sheltered location to another. Good advice on the Mozart Chocolate and on places to visit during our free time.

Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very nice tour by Ursula! Comfortable bus ride (bathroom and drinks sold by bus driver) with Ursula providing background on the history of Bavaria and current events. She was right...all the cows in Bavaria do look happy! She also got us up to the Eagle's Nest very efficiently so that we had plenty of time to explore and then back with enough time for lunch and shopping. Good walking tour of Berchtesgaden, I think it would have been great to see the salt mines, as well.

We had an early morning pick up time and driver was even 5 minutes early. Van was clean, comfortable, and with plenty of room for luggage. Driver knew exactly which terminal and entrance to drop us off.

Skip the Line: Prado Museum Express Ticket and Tour in Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Very much worth it just to skip the line. We had to wait for another couple to show up, so I felt it cut into our time a bit, but the guide was very prepared and took us immediately to the major works. She gave us good information and background on the artists and their work, but left us after about an hour. We ended up spending another 2 hours by ourselves.

Madrid Airport Arrival Shuttle Transfer

My Rating

My Review

The shuttle companies were very busy the day we arrived, but we had only a five minute wait for the driver. Got us to our hotel safely by a direct route. Very nice not having to figure out ground transportation when you first hit the ground!

Paris City Tour with Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower Lunch

Paris, France

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

My Review

This was run by one of the tour companies and the best that I can say is that they got us to all of the sites. The bus tour was a recording, same with the river cruise, the guide went up to the restaurant with us and that was the last we saw of the tour company. We were responsible for finding our way back.

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our guide was a student from Canada and had lived in Paris for many years. He was very knowledgeable about the Cathedral from the history to the construction and was able to answer a wide variety of questions. He kept a good eye on us, warning about potential pick pockets and kept the group together through some pretty significant crowds.

Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We loved this tour! Our guide was a delightful young woman from Oxford who had just completed her degree in French history so she had some great stories to tell about the French monarchy and provide an excellent tour of the extensive grounds. The bikes were great and the tour is appropriate for all ages and skill levels. The market was a delight and the guide was able to make good recommendations for some of the vendors. The only downside was that by the time we finished the bike tour, the lines to get into Versailles were HOURS long - perhaps a Skip the Line tour in conjunction with the bike tour?

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

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

My Review

Tour guide was knowledgeable, but we really didn't need to see her become combative with one of the gypsy guides operating within the Louvre. She took us right away to see the major works - no easy feat with the hordes of people visiting in August. The biggest downside is that she led us out of the museum area to end the tour - if she had ended inside the museum, we would have continued on our own. Instead, there was a lot we didn't get to see.
