Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful day trip from Madrid. Avila's fortress walls were impressive and I learned about St. Teresa and the martyrs Vicente , Sabina, and Cristeta. The walk through the town was nice.
Segovia was fantastic! We walked upto the Roman aqueduct to marvel at the scale and skill of the builders. Then, we had the lunch featuring the famous bean soup and roast suckling pig. It was topped with a nice Rioja wine. Then, it was onto the beautiful Segovia Cathedral just off the Plaza Mayor. As the last Gothic style cathedral in Spain, it had a great blend of styles inside.
Lastly, we went to the Alcazar - said to have inspired Disney and his princess castles. As you walk through the garden, the views of the surrounding areas are awesome. Finally, the castle appears and you are impressed with its beauty and its stature. I can see why this was a favorite castle for the kings of Castile and Leon.
All in all - a great visit for history and architecture buffs.

Viator Exclusive: Private World War I Battlefields Tour of Flanders from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very insightful and somber day - it is incredible to still see landscape affected by events of 100 years ago. Our guide customized a bit for us and we visited the site of McCrae's poem as well as the "In Flanders Fields Museum" in Ypres. The Irish, Canadian, and Tyne Cot memorials were very powerful.

Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Chocolate tasting in Brussels - what could be better? Our guide Stephan led us to various Chocolate shops to sample from a number of Belgium's finest chocolate makers. The walk around Brussels was a nice way to see more of the city. We also had a hands on experience to create our own masterpieces. I even braved putting pepper on my chocolate for an excellent visual and tasty change of pace. A suitcase full of chocolate should let you know this review is biased for anything chocolate!

The team was extremely professional and diligent in teaching you about the life on the reef. The scooters were a great way to get close to the fishies. We enjoyed our half day in the bay.

The Faust Wine Cellar was a unique place to experience the wines of Hungary. Deep beneath the Hilton in the Castle district in a real cellar. Fantastic. Gabor freely shared his knowledge and he was an excellent host to our adventure. Very nice.
