Morning Maverick Horseback Ride with Breakfast

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our ride and breakfast was great. Breakfast was more than expected
The area around Red Rock canyon is truly beautiful. The stables at Bonnie Spring were well maintained , the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We had Chris as our guide on the trail. She was not only knowledgable but kept it light and fun. Robbie and Cate did all they could to make sure we were comfortable. You have your choice of eating before or after the ride. One couple chose before, hmmmmmm, bouncing around on a horse for an hour after you just ate! After the ride we had a choice of breakfast or lunch. The breakfast was a large ranch breakfast with eggs anyway you wanted them, meat, pancakes and drinks. We had time to walk through Bonnie Springs western town and Zoo which were included in the fee we paid. Unfortunately we were there on a day (monday) when the western shows are dark. The Zoo was small but for kids the chance to interact with some of the animals would have been fun. All in all we had a blast. The trip to and from Bonnie Springs took about 35 minutes and the driver was very helpful and pointed out various sites.

Zarzuela Opera and Dinner at La Castafiore Restaurant in Madrid

My Review

Did not know what to expect when we got there. Prebooking got a fixed menu (two selection (meat or fish) for entree (and any dessert) rest was prefixed. Food was good, no limit on wine! Be prepared to stay the entire time. It says 9pm - 12:15am and it means it. Intimate setting and the waiters and waitresses do the singing (and they are GOOD). Music and singing during the meal and after. If you are in a hurry you miss a lot of the entertainment and fun. If you are in walking distance good idea to go on major streets and walk back as it will settle the food/wine. Also please note that the staff speaking limited english (one waitress spoke good english). We figured out that is was a special place since most of the guests were from Spain!

Sitges and Freixenet's Cava Wine Cellars Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Tour of Freixenet was great good tour , lots of information and a sample of Cava. Would recommend that the tour be more about Spanish wines and forget Sitges. Sitges we were on our own for several hours which was way to much. We did learn that Bacardi family was from this town and there is a museum. HOWEVER, you can only see on a tour and the English tour for the day was fully booked at to late. Other than that if you wanted to see a beach and have food I guess it would have been okay for a few minutes

Small-Group Barcelona Cooking Class

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you want a small hands on experience cooking we would say try this one. 8 people all English speaking (and 50/50 men and women). Prepared a Gaspacho, Seafood Paella and Creme Catalune. Lots of fun, work, wine. We then got to eat all of it.

Worth the experience to learn about spanish food and spices... Remember there is never enough olive oil or garlic in the food

Tapas Evening Walking Tour of Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Lots of fun. English speaking group met at the first of 4 Tapas restaurants. small group so lots of interaction. First glass of wine and all Tapas were included. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND what is provided. We also got a tour of the old parts of Barcelona, and La Boqueria.. Found a good nougat shop (with Samples!) and a chocolate and coffee shop. Guide was great. Only downside was we started early 6pm so did not get to experience the full Tapas dining after 9pm
