Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
It was wonderful to be able to walk amongst the stones, something that most are not able to do. It was worth getting to our pick up point at 5:45am to be able to do so. We had a great guide who knew the area and obviously enjoys what he does. Breakfast at Lacock was terrific, a wonderful inn. Bath is really interesting and my only complaint would be that we did not have enough time to see more of Bath. Another hour would have made the trip perfect. A great way to spend the day.

Skip the Line: Buckingham Palace Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
To be able to go inside Buckingham Palace was an experience not to miss. A great tour, and we got to have afternoon tea in the garden afterwards. Being able to skip the lines made the experience even better and was worth the extra money. If you have the chance to go and see the Queen's residence do so.

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This is a great way of seeing London and it is worth going on all the bus routes if you are able to. It is a 24hour pass rather than a day pass. We did not get on our first bus until 1:30pm and were able to use the pass until 1:30pm the next day, so we got good use of our passes. Others don't seem to do this. The commentaries are good and give you a lot of information about London. You do need to go to the start points to get your pass validated, which is not helpful when you pass so many of the bus stops on the way. We did not have any trouble with traffic, though it was on the weekend that we used our pass. I'd recommend this to anyone on their first visit to London.

London Pass

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A great way of seeing London especially on a 7 day pass. You get a hop on/hop off bus trip and a hop on/hop off ferry trip included so remember that if you are booking other things. Also all museums are free so it is not worth it if that is all you're going to see. The London Eye and Westminster Abbey are also not included. But despite this we got excellent value from this card and would recommend it. Buying an Oyster card may be cheaper than using the transport option included.

Versailles and Giverny Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We got off to a bad start with a badly organised system of getting on the right bus. But the day was wonderful. The gardens are beautiful and it is not hard to see Monet's paintings everywhere you look. We even had time to wander in the little village. Lunch was very nice in a lovely location. The Palace of Versailles is amazing but we arrived with lots of other buses and were rushed through the palace. The commentary was good but we did not have enough time to really look at what we were hearing about. Almost no time to see the gardens. Another hour to the trip would have made it even better. If you really want to see the palace, book a day trip so you can wander through the gardens as well, and go on a Saturday or Sunday as the fountains only work then. A great day's outing with great tour guides.

Eiffel Tower Dinner, Seine River Cruise and Moulin Rouge Show by Minivan

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What a great night. Going with a smaller group, only 7 people, gave us more time as we weren't waiting for people to get on the bus or boat. We had an amazing guide who pointed out things as we drove along. He was charming. Dinner at the Eiffel Tower was excellent. Good choices and good service. The boat trip is worth it, watching the lights on the Eiffel Tower is something not to be missed. Moulin Rouge was crowded but well managed. The show was colourful. We were picked up and dropped off at our apartment which was fantastic as it was such a late night. I would recommend this tour.

Paris Pass

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This is a great way to see Paris, especially if you are there for a week (greater value the longer you are there). The amount of time it saves you from lining up for tickets (you just walk pass the lines) makes it worth the money. It also gave us a 'hop on hop off' bus ticket, a card for the Metro, so we could bus or train anywhere simply, and the full museum pass. We definitely would recommend this for the ease of doing things. I think we saw and did a lot more than we had planned because of what was on the card. They give you a great book with all the information in that you will need to know.

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This is a great way of seeing Paris. We rode on the buses to see our way around Paris and then used them to visit what we wanted to see. They have a great view and good commentary (personal headphones in many languages). We rode on all the buses circuits over our 2 days and therefore saw quite a bit of Paris some that we would have not seen otherwise. We were able to plan what we would see over the rest of our stay as we came to know which sights were near each other. It is a good way to start your stay in Paris.

This was a great flight with commentary by the pilot. The people at the ranch were great, and brunch was terrific. I went horse riding with real cowboys and loved it. I even saw a gunfight! I would recommend it. The company was very professional and took great care of us.

The New York Pass

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This is a great way to see New York. We made the mistake of booking some things before we arrived and didn't get the discount offered. We did the seven-day pass. I don't think you'd get your money's worth for fewer days. It was good to walk pass the queues.

New York in One Day Sightseeing Tour

New York City, New York

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

My Review
This was worth doing, but our tour guide was so fast walking around and didn't wait until we were all there to give us the information, so we missed out on bits. It did show us the main tourist sites for Manhattan and is good if you don't have enough time to get yourselves around.
