Murano Glass and Burano Lace Tour from Venice

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our guide was Francesca. Born and raised in Venice, she was a wonderful representative of the city she loves. The visit to the glass factory and lace shop were interesting, but I enjoyed the boat ride out to the islands and back more. Got to see the side of Venice where most live and work. Francesca's spoke of the history of Venice, Murano and Burano while we gazed at the simple beauty and grace of the city and smaller islands. Took the afternoon tour, which meant we saw Murano and Burano without the tourist crowds.

Venice Tour Including Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our guide, Eleanora, gave us a wonderful glimpse of a part of Venice away from all the tourist crowds - the Academia side of the city. Walked through old, quiet, often elegant areas of the city. From old palazzos now converted for public use, to favorite local hangouts with awesome food. And at the end of the walk, a quiet ride through some of the small canals of the city by gondola. I could easily have spent many hours just drifting from canal to canal. How our gondolier managed some of the tight curves and corners without bumping or scratching the gondola is still a mystery. Would do it all again!

My Review

Really enjoyed the morning out on the canals of Bangkok. Unexpected bonus - it was a small tour with only 4 travelers. The great part of being a small tour - one-to-one conversations with a really good guide. A boat tour is so much more enjoyable than one on a bus. Would highly recommend it.

Bangkok Airport Shared Arrival Transfer

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Met at the airport by genuinely nice people. From the time I was met to the time I was delivered to the driver and sent off to my hotel - everything was smoothless. Couldn't ask for a better no-hassle way to get through an unfamiliar airport and safely delivered to my hotel. Forget finding a taxi. It is well worth the money to have someone waiting to make the transition from airport to hotel with complete ease.

Paris Walking Tour: Secret Sites and Hidden Gems

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Wonderful to explore the little streets and hidden gems in the older part of Paris with a Parisienne. My guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the city and the nooks and crannies we explored. The fresh baguette and sample plate of different cheeses (at a shop that has 200 types on display) was one of the best parts. And the macaroons were like nothing I have ever had before. I would do this again!

Floran was great! So wonderful to view the Louvre with a guide who is passionate about art and his city. Three hours was a good "taste", that leaves you wanting more.
