Crete (Heraklion)
Lasithi Plateau Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Enjoyed it. A well balanced tour that gave a good insight to rural Crete

Cairo (Port Said)
Pyramids Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

7 hours in the bus was expected so no criticism there. BUT 80 minutes for lunch and 30 minutes at a tacky souvenir shop (half those on the bus didn't even get off) but only 60 minutes in one of the most famous, interesting and important museums in the world, 20 minutes at the Sphinx and 40 minutes at the pyramids were completely the wrong priorities! The tour was expensive and when you have come half way round the world to look at some of the world's greatest treasures, to spend almost half your sight seeing time devoted to standing in line to get food you didn't need or want and then in a bus while shopping trajics look for souvenirs is a joke and certainly not value for money. Get a private tour where you might see what you pay to see!

Grand Master Palace Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Rushed and missed much of the interest inside the various rooms

Lindos Walking Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Crowded, lots of steps and town which uses its famous site to get tourists there. Lost most of its charm as a consequence

Rhodes Old Town Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Crowded, and virtually set up for tourists and consequently lost most of its charm

Ship docks close by and easy just to walk around and enjoy the sites and one of the many good eating places

Port Rating: Not Rated

Ship docks right next to the town enabling easy stroll through this tourist trap. rained very heavily and therefore didn't go to Ephesus which is the reason cruise ships come here.
