Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

An enjoyable half day tour of Honk Kong Island. The guide was knowledgable and interesting, telling us lots of local information. The views were wonderful, the ride on the sampan was fun, the trip down on the tram was steep, but fun. The bus driver took our photo and presented us with a reasonably priced set of pics/plate which we were very happy to purchase. We visited the Dynasty jewellery factory/shop which was temptation plus! Sitting in the sun at the view point with a gelati was magic.

Nikko National Park Day Trip from Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A long but very pleasant day. The coach was comfortable but didn't have a toilet on board. There were however sufficient stops throughout the day to accommodate people's needs. Our guide, Nao, was lovely, had good English and knew a great deal about the places we visited. The shrine was beautifully restored with some stunning art work. The Imperial Palace and garden was lovely. The waterfall a little underwhelming but very pleasant. Our fellow travellers were fun and chatty. Good value and worth the time investment.

Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

My Review

You take a risk booking in advance, hoping that the skies will be clear. On our trip the weather was overcast initially but cleared somewhat by the time we reached the viewing stage. A few clouds did not dampen the spirit of our group, it is still a stunning sight. We did not attend the lunch, but bought some tasty food from a local cafe. It started to snow on us as we were about to do our boat trip but again that was fine- I haven't been snowed on for many decades so it was a novelty for me! The drive through Hakone was interesting but by the time we stopped it was fairly cold and we only had time to stop for a quick coffee. Our guide was pleasant, organised and knowledgable.

Salzburg Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We took the very crowded train to Salzburg and then a bus to the outskirts of the old town. We walked through into the old town passing famous landmarks such as, Mozart's later home, the home of the Sacher torte and various Sound of Music film sites. In the old town we visited Mozart's birthplace, St. Peter's church, the market place, where we had an amazing ham sandwich and wandered round the very picturesque Main Street and along the riverbank. The weather was unseasonably warm and was just wonderful. Some of our group went up to the fortress and said it was very interesting and had a beautiful view. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable, with excellent English. We had a quieter journey home, and a little doze on the train. A wonderful, unforgettable day.

Essential Hamburg Combo: Hop-on Hop-off Tour, Cruise and Lake Alster

Hamburg, Germany

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

My Review

The bus tour was rather crowded with a woman behind me digging her knees into the back of my seat. Most of the commentary was in German, with the little English commentary there was coming after we had passed the place referred to. The lake cruise had no English commentary at all, although I could tell that the captain/guide was amusing, shame we missed the jokes. There didn't seem much point to the cruise as there seemed little to look at, I enjoyed the bracing air and the chance to rest for an hour. The tour description said there would be tea included in the price, but we were not offered any or directed to anywhere to get some. We didn't bother to go for the harbour cruise.
