Napali and Ni'ihau 'The Forbidden Island' Kauai Snorkel Cruise

Kauai, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great day trip. The 7-hour day trip starts out early (630 a.m. from Port Allen, near Hanepepe), but you begin with a continental breakfast, followed by beautiful views of Kaua'i as you head across the channel to Ni'ihau (The Forbidden Island). Once anchored off the coast, the snorkelling is excellent. There is a vast array of colourful fish, caves to swim into, and honu (sea turtles) gracefully gliding past as you snorkel. After snorkelling, a quick trip back across the channel takes you along the breathtaking NaPali coast. Drinks and lunch are provided before the return trip to Port Allen.

Captain Wendell and his crew (Zena, Jay and Kama) were great. They introduced themselves and asked about where we were visiting from, kept checking in to make sure we didn't need any more food or drinks, and answered our questions about the island and some of the things we saw. Captain Wendell did a great job narrating the snorkel cruise, and Zena spent time telling us some of the places the locals like to visit. Definitely worth it!

PS: If you get motion sickness, take some dramamine BEFORE hopping on board. You don't want to have your head in a bucket and miss these gorgeous sites!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was such an amazing experience, soaring about the Catalunya countryside. This was our first hot air balloon ride, and we'll definitely be planning more for the future. It was a such a nice, smooth ride and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Our guide, Nico, and our pilot, Tomàs, were great! We definitely recommend this. Great for couples!

Girona and Costa Brava Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Girona and Costa Brava day trip was wonderful. Wandering through the streets of Girona and enjoying lunch in the Plaça Major was nice. Such a beautiful city along the river. The beach at Callela de Palafrugell was beautiful and secluded. We had a nice walk along the beach and took a quick dip in the Mediterranean. There was plenty of time to enjoy the beach. Our guide, Alex, was excellent.

Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Àvila and Segovia day trip was great, but we felt a bit rushed. Àvila is a beautiful walled city that takes you back hundreds of years. The Basilica and Cathedral of Santa Teresita were both great. The Roman aqueduct in Segovia was incredible. Worth seeing, but we definitely felt a bit rushed trying to keep up with the itinerary.
