San Francisco, California
Blandina is a great guide, who has lived in the area for many years and really knows where to go to and what is good. Lots of tastings - bread, biscotti, pasta , pizza , fudge and coffee and the best cannoli that I have ever had. You will not need lunch after this tour! We also dropped in to a church and a chapel and she told us quite a bit about the local history and personalities. There were four of us on the tour and we really enjoyed it and would certainly go back to a number of the places we visited.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Red Rock Canyon is stunning - lovely 13 mile drive around the park with amazing views. Lots of areas to stop and go hiking. Mojave desert is a wonderful contrast to Las Vegas. Fascinating to see the desert plants and rock formations.
Would have looked a bit more information from the guide about the rock formations. He said that he did not enjoy tours where the guide spoke all the time but perhaps he should ask the group how much information they want rather than make assumptions.
Visit to the Spring Mountain State Park and the house Howard Hughes owned was interesting - worth picking this tour so you get to see it.
We had a wonderful guide who had grown up in Evora and really knew the area. It is a gorgeous (but hot ) town full of historical interest and wonderful buildings, especially the Roman temple. Our guide showed us a great little restaurant for lunch and one amazing pastry shop that specialised in convent cakes for coffee and cakes later in the day. The wine and olive oil tasting provided a great break and we stopped to see cork trees and the cromlech before going back to Lisbon. Pretty amazing day!
