Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We did this private tour from our cruise ship and we're so glad we did! It was a MUCH smaller group and it was half the price! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. The lunch at Topaki Palace was delicious! Only one suggestion skip the rug sales pitch and allow more shopping time at the Grand Bazaar.

Montenegro Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a great side trip from Dubrovnik. We absolutely loved the landscape and scenery of Montenegro. What a beautiful place! We also felt that we had enough guided time vs. free time in each town so as not to miss anything.

Danube Bend Day Trip from Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Had a great day exploring the countryside along the Danube River. The lunch was wonderful! The restaurant in Visegrad had a beautiful view of the river. We didn't spend much time at the end at the jewelry factory, which was nice. It would have been better to travel back by boat, but we missed it by 4 days!

Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a great day out! We first visited Pena Palace, which was wonderful, before getting some free time to shop in Sintra before a yummy lunch. I loved driving along the Portuguese coast before stopping at the most western point of Europe. Would definitely recommend!

Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol, Spain

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

My Review
We really enjoyed this day trip...the shopping time on your own, the tour of the "rock" and the local apes our guide was wonderful! BUT the local excursion company was AWFUL! Our guide on the bus was very unprofessional and could barely speak English! The bus was ratty and worn and leaked all over us due to an AC condensation problem. Loved the trip--hated the company!

Seville Day Trip from the Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Seville was a great day out! We were staying in a touristy beach resort and loved experiencing "authentic Spain" in Seville! We opted to not do the lunch or boat tour and had 4 hours on our own to explore at our leisure. We would definitely recommend this one!

Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We really enjoyed our trip to Morocco! Despite my husband's reservations to go with our small children, it turned out to be a great day! We got to stop and ride a camel before taking to the streets of Tangier and experiencing the local culture. They took us to a very nice shop, where we could peruse the local handicrafts hassle-free. We also had a wonderful lunch while listening to live Moroccan music.

Monaco and Eze Small Group Day Trip from Nice

Nice, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Highly recommend this one! Drove along the beautiful coastline stopping in the charming village of Eze before heading to a wonderful day in Monaco! Our guide was spot on getting us to the changing of the Palace Guards before getting a glimpse of Prince Albert driving by! She made reservations for my husband and father to drive Ferraris around the Monte Carlo Grand Prix--a DEFINITE highlight!

Provence Countryside Small Group Day Trip

Nice, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a wonderful day! Driving up into the hills of Provence was beautiful! My favorite stop was in the little hilltop village of Gourdons, where we enjoyed a fantastic lunch overlooking the mountains. We had just enough time in St. Paul de Vence to wander the tiny cobble-stoned streets and peek in the art galleries. The only negative thing was that we only got 45 minutes in Cannes in the morning before anything opened. Still a great day!

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was my first time getting a guided tour of the Louvre, and it was well worth it. It was very comprehensive and hit on all the main highlights of the museum. Our tour guide seemed a bit rushed, but we had so much to see in two and a half hours!

Dinner at La Coupole, Seine River Cruise and Moulin Rouge Show

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a really great evening out in Paris! The service at La Coupole was excellent. We enjoyed every minute of the cruise along the Seine. The Moulin Rouge show was interesting to say the least. Our only issue was our tour driver, who appeared to be drunk by the end of the night, and complained about how far away our hotel was. It was very unprofessional, but otherwise it really was a fun night!

Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was wonderful! We loved taking the train out into the French countryside before shopping in a local produce market to find things to eat for the picnic lunch we had along the banks of the river. The bike ride to Giverny was so much fun and Monet's house and gardens were breathtaking! This really is a must do if you're a Monet fan!

Siena and San Gimignano Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The Tuscany wine country was breathtaking - a must see! However, I would have really liked to have spent longer than an hour in San Gimignano. It was quainter than Siena and I felt a little rushed.

Florence Half-Day or Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Seeing the Accademia and Uffizi museums was amazing! The statue of David was unforgettable. Our guide was very comprehensive and spoke English very well. I would skip the included lunch and just go on your own; the food wasn't that great.

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

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

My Review
I liked the fact that the walking tour took us through the back streets and non-touristy areas of Venice, but the commentary was very dry. I found myself bored a few times. I was also expecting to do more than just spend fifteen minutes in St. Mark's Basilica before walking out. There was no time to explore on your own or visit other areas of this main attraction. I could have done this walk on my own.

Private Tour: Venice Gondola Ride with Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was our favorite part of being in Venice and a highlight of our whole trip to Italy!! We did this to celebrate our 10th anniversary and it was the best way to do it. The man who sang had a beautiful voice that carried through the canal and it was one of the romantic things we have done... not cheesy at all! I would highly recommend doing this for either a special occasion or just to get the full flavor of Venice!

Private Tour: Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello Day Trip from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This trip was so worth it! The scenery was absolutely amazing! Our driver didn't really speak English, but we managed just fine. He stopped at different viewpoints along the way and took our picture. He surprised us by taking us to a place that made beautiful Italian items, and although there was no pressure to buy anything, we bought a handmade mahogany table! Sorrento was definitely the highlight! I would have liked to have stopped in Positano, but time wouldn't allow for it. The driver took us to a restaurant for lunch that overlooked the sea and cliffs. What a great day!

Versailles Guided Tour with Optional Fountain Show

Paris, France

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

My Review
I was very excited at the possibility of seeing Versailles, but was a bit disappointed. They are doing a major preservation project on both the outside and inside at the Hall of Mirrors. I felt that there was more construction going on than things to see. It also would have been nice to see Marie Antoinette's quarters within the gardens, but we were never offered that option.

Prague Vltava River Afternoon Tea Cruise

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a great way to begin our trip to Prague! The kiosk was easy to find near our hotel, so it made it very convenient having two small children. It was a VERY hot day, and although the price did not include drinks for the children, they were so kind to provide them free of charge. The boat was very spacious and had an inside/outside area you could enjoy. The river allowed you to see the city at a different angle. The Charles Bridge was phenomenal! I would definitely recommend this as a way to get familiar with Prague.

Dublin Bay and Malahide Castle Half-Day Tour

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This trip is definitely worth it just to see the quaint little seaside town of Malahide. Driving along the coast was also a treat, although I would plan to go on a clear day so you can see and appreciate the beauty of the landscape.
