Grand Canyon West Rim Air and Ground Day Trip from Las Vegas with Skywalk

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Flight to the Grand Canyon very interesting and views were spectacular. Pilot friendly and efficient. Queues for the buses to and from various parts of the park were long and at times disorganised with lots of queue jumping. The skywalk was amazing and a great view of the canyon. Lunch was tasty but the all you can eat is a little false as it is canteen style with designated portions and only 1 visit. If you are going take a hat and lots of sunscreen, it is hot!

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom by Luxury SUV with Colorado River Float

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Driver friendly and interesting, we were the only people on the tour so the standard of service was extremely high, with ice cold bottled water freely available. The boat tour to the bottom of the dam was amazing, the tour guide was well informed and interesting. The driver led the tour on the outside of the dam and again was full of interesting information. The tour to the inside of the dam is run by the dam itself and the groups were extremely large, the lifts were very crowded. Having previously been on an top of the dam only tour I would highly recommend this trip, as you get to see a unique view of the dam.

Private Tour: Whistler Day Trip from Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This is a fabulous trip, we were picked up on time and the tour guides were a father and son team who were extremely interesting and well informed. The views on the drive to Whistler are spectacular. As this is private tour we were able to stop along the way as we wanted. Whistler itself was fantastic and the gondola ride and views from the top of the mountain are amazing. The only thing was there was so much to do and see in Whistler another hour or two there would have been great, though that would have meant not having time to stop at several waterfalls on the trip back which were well worth it. We highly recommend this trip.

Vancouver Whale-Watching Tour

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Prompt hotel pickup, very friendly driver who pointed out sights and landmarks on our journey to the dock. The trip on the boat to get to the whales did take over two hours but that is due to where the whales were on the particular day and the trip is not always that far. Guide on the boat keep us well informed on the wildlife and where we were travelling to. Did see a pod of whales, mostly dorsal fins but a few breaches. Beautiful scenery. A good day out.

Vancouver Trolley Hop-on Hop-off Tour, Lookout Observation Deck and Vancouver Aquarium Combo

Vancouver, Canada

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

My Review
The trolley itself is a glorified hotel bus as most of the stops are just picking up or dropping off at various hotels around the city. Most of the sights could have been seen by public transport or on foot. The lookout is a little dated and needs a bit of an overhaul. Stanley Park is beautiful and interesting. The aquarium is very limited and the layout is poorly sign posted and confusing. The baby beluga whale was the highlight, the rest of the exhibits are small and a little tired looking.

Adelaide Highlights and Hahndorf Tour with Optional River Cruise

Adelaide, Australia

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

My Review
We only saw Adelaide through the bus window. Hahndorf was very pretty, but we were just left there to guide ourselves. Afternoon tea was a small piece of cake and a hot drink. We spent too long in Hahndorf.

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

My Review
Well, they get you to your hotel but the bus is old, dirty and smelly! Pick up point in the airport extremely hard to find, information from company says follow blue signs but we couldn't find any then a 25 minute wait until shuttle arrived. Driver then drove like a maniac on the freeway.

Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves Motorcoach Day Tour

Sydney, Australia

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

My Review
The caves were excellent, but our tour group had 77 people, which was far too many and could raise health and safety issues. The views were wonderful. There was too little time for lunch, which was not included in the tour cost. We queued for 40 minutes and only had 10 minutes to eat.

Sydney Harbour Sunset Dinner Cruise

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The food was good. It's a shame that you are back by 6:30 p.m. when you only leave at 5 p.m. It felt slightly like a production line, as the next cruise was at 7 p.m. We paid for extra for guaranteed window seats, and the cruise wasn't even half full, so everyone got a window seat. It's not worth paying extra in off-peak times.

South Coast Day Trip from Sydney with Jervis Bay Dolphin Watching Cruise

Sydney, Australia

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

My Review
The dolphin cruise was good, and we saw seals and dolphins. The rest of the day was spent mainly on a coach - a 13-hour day for a 2-hour cruise. I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Driver was rude and unhelpful. Damaged the wheel on one of our suitcases, it now doesn't work, by hurling it into the trailer, missing and hitting the metal side of the trailer!
