Blue Mountains Nature and Wildlife Day Tour from Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It prob isn't fair to rate this trip. It was a foggy, foggy viewless day. The bird and animal park was a treat as was the lunch and the driver. The bus was comfortable and glad we didn't have to drive.

Chichen Itza Small-Group Tour with Private Entrance

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was without a doubt the very best way to see Chichen Itza. It was so nice to be picked up at our hotel rather than having to find a way to some meeting place. There were just 3 couples in the van which was indeed a Mercedes and while not a fancy one was new, clean, and very comfortable. We stopped at nice bathrooms and did not face local sales efforts there. The private entrance through the beautiful and historic Mayaland Hotel was intriguing. Most people do not even know about it. A short 5 minute walk on a nice path through tropical forest and you come out right next to the largest pyramind. Water and umbrellas were provided and were very much needed/used. I felt bad for the people who came on buses. Our guide was exceptionally well informed and the Observatory show [The Mayan Sky] was fascinating. The buffet lunch at the Hotel was basically "right there" and was delicious. They had ethnic dancers to entertain. Bring tip money for them and pesos to buy nice things from the locals. There is a small local chocolate factory on campus and exceptionally beautiful tropical gardens. We would like to stay at the Mayaland Hotel if we go down there again. Our driver, Giovani, spoke perfect English, has studied in the US and was fun and well informed. He even showed us pictures of his pet monkey!
