Aruba Sunset Catamaran Cruise

Aruba

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is beautiful. So worth the money and time. Walk down the road in between the Occidental and the Hyatt and you will walk right onto the catamaran. The crew is fantastic. They are very helpful and fun loving. The catamaran is spacious. We had 60 people on our cruise and did not feel crowded. The drinks are strong and plentiful so watch out! Try the green iguana or the drunken sailor. The snacks were limited so do not think you can use this instead of dinner. The trip was so smooth and scenic. You can really get lost in the beauty of the water and the beaches. Any attire is acceptable. The wind is a non-factor, but if you are prone to being cold it may be best to bring a sweater. I would not hesitate to take this cruise again and will plan on doing it the next time we are in Aruba.

Aruba Atlantis Submarine Expedition

Aruba

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a nice expedition. Something very touristy that you should do at least once. It was easy to find, but parking is at a premium so get there early. The check-in process is super easy. You have to take a boat to the submarine and the time is spent wisely reviewing emergency procedures so once you get to the submarine you are ready for the adventure. The submarine is not crowded. Everyone has a good view out the portholes. There are cards next to the portholes to find the different fish. You see two shipwrecks and a ton of fish. We saw "Crush" the sea turtle and "Dory" from Finding Nemo which the kids thought was great. We saw a barracuda and several others. You see the different changes in the reefs from 20 feet to 120 feet down. Overall it is worth the money. I may not do this every time we are in Aruba but it definitely is worth seeing it at least once.

Natural Pool Jeep Adventure

Aruba

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is the best adventure in Aruba. Well worth the money and time. We had four adults and two teenagers and everyone said this was the best. We felt very safe on this hair raising tour. Remember you are on vacation and Aruba time so the times are approximate. Our tour was scheduled from 1-5 but it was more like 2-7. Other than that get ready for an adventurous trip to the outerlands of Aruba where not very many people have been or seen. Our tour guide was James and he was informative. Jair was our jeep driver and he was amazing. He took off-roading to another level. He took the road less traveled so we got closer to the action and the sights. Ask for him for an unforgetable experience. The jeeps are well maintained and the intercom system that James used to communicate with us worked perfectly. Bring towels and your watershoes. They will provide snorkel equipment when you get to the Natural Pool which is fantastic. The sights along the way are amazing so bring your camera. Jair and James and the other drivers will not hesitate to take your picture so everyone in your party is in the shot. There are several stops along the way to stretch and take pictures. There are plentiful snacks and water and soda. I have been on tours where each person gets one bag of chips and a cup of water. They had granola bars and snack chips and cans of soda and cups of water. They were not stingy about giving them out. I would highly recommend this tour and will most likely do it again when we are back in Aruba.

Madrid Card

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
If you go to Madrid, the Madrid Card is a must. It allows you to go to almost every museum for free. When all the shops are closed during siesta, you can ride a double decker bus and learn about Madrid. When the restaurants reopen at 9:00 p.m., you can get free tapas or sangria or discounts on several restaurants. You can save so much money using this card. It is definitely worth the cost, which is not very much.

Toledo Half-Day or Full-Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Certainly a must when you visit Madrid. The bus was clean. The tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and conversed in both English and Spanish without anyone feeling left out. When we reached Toledo she would talk to the Spanish audience and then the English audience so we all understood the beauty of this city. We had lunch included which was very tasty and abundant. This is a walking tour so bring comfortable shoes. The city was fabulous. From the cathedral to El Greco it was an amazing visit. The architecture and the history was enjoyable to listen to. Truly spectacular.

Panoramic Madrid by Night Tour

Madrid, Spain

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

My Review
The guide was experienced and spoke both Spanish and English fluently and coherently. The trip was in June so it was still light out at 10pm when we were supposed to see the Madrid lights. After traveling around the city for two and a half hours we were dropped off somewhere in Madrid to find our way back to our destination. It is lucky that Madrid has a good subway system. We also took the day tour, stick with the day tour.
