Private Tour: Thai Burma Death Railway Bridge on the River Kwai Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Four of us did this as a private trip. It's a long day but worth it. The guide was excellent. The visit to the war graves was very moving, and again the visit to the pow camp museum was very interesting although on a previous trip some Yeats ago I remember there being a lot more information and personal stories within the museum which really brought home the horror and the bravery of the prisoners. Perhaps as there is a greater level of tourism in the area some of the exhibits have moved? We really enjoyed the short boat ride to the bridge and the trip on the train was interesting and a chance to see more of the agricultural side of the area.

Charlottenburg Palace: Dinner and Concert with River Spree Sightseeing Cruise

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon and evening. The boat trip was very relaxing. The meal at the palace was good and the concert was really excellent. Everyone joined in the spirit of recreating an age gone by which was fun and the costumes enhanced the whole evening in a lovely setting.
Good organisation - all the tickets were waiting for us.

Berlin Highlights and Hidden Sites Historical Walking Tour

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent guide who brought the city to life with real stories about real people. thoroughly enjoyed the walk and would highly recommend this especially at the beginning of a short break as it gives you an opportunity to see places you may want to go go back to . Out guide also recommended other places we subsequently visited and helped us and others with ideas on where to eat etc. Definately a highlight of the trip.

Berlin Supersaver: Hop-on Hop-off City Tour and Skip the Line Entry to TV Tower

Berlin, Germany

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

My Review

We had some difficulty finding where to validate our tickets for this - it would have been much better if we could have downloaded a valid ticket from the net. We were also surprised to find that the tour buses did not start until 10am - when we are on a short city break we like to start early, it would not be unreasonable for the buses to start at 9am. By the time we had validated the tickets etc a lot of the day had passed so I felt we missed out somewhat. The TV tower was ok, but again we queued up only to be sent back to the entrance to have our tickets validated. The tower was very busy and crowded but the view was very good - the glass of champagne that goes with the ticket - the barman very grumpily told us it was not champagne - however it was a pleasant glass of sparkling wine.
