  • Arrival Day Help

    Hi Jonathan, According to the locals I know who have taken one of the variety of Colonial Tram Restaurant trips available, they say the best time to go is for lunch and that the food is surprisingly good for a tram! They advice lunchtime because you can see where you are going. An alternative to the organised trip is to catch a ride on the free, City Circle tram. http://ptv.vic.gov.au/route/view/1112 You can catch it from Flinders Street, which if you look at the map is ... as the crow flies ... almost directly opposite the hotel on the other side of the river. Another alternative, one I often enjoy in a foreign city, is to buy a tram ticket and just go. The Number 8 route, travelling down St. Kilda Road, through South Yarra, to Toorak and beyond might be very entertaining on a variety of levels. If you missed Haight Ashbury because you blinked ... , take a tram down Brunswick Street. That bohemian environment goes for miles and miles! It all depends on why you do anything when you are travelling and your state of mind when you do it. Apart from appreciating the skill in producing it, I happen to think Mount Rushmore is one of the most twee things I've ever seen. But Americans seem to like it which is why, no doubt, Tauck take their tours there. I was the only foreigner on that trip. I spent my time checking out the state flag for Hawaii, complete with it's Union flag of the UK in the corner. History I love. Large images on mountains, not so much. Doesn't mean I don't appreciate the amount of dynamite involved in construction. ;) And as for food on trams .... by the time you leave Australia you should have discovered what Australian travellers to the States think of many of the things they ate along the way. I know, survival is all. Needs must. So you eat stuff you'd never dream of eating at home. And hope your arteries recover after a couple of months on a regular diet. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Doesn't stop me looking, though. Cheers, Jan

    I'll be arriving a day early for the May 11, 2015 tour (arriving on Sunday afternoon). I anticipate that I'll want to rest that afternoon. Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do the next day? Is it worth going back to Milan? If so, how should I get there?

    I traveled to Hawaii alone last May. A wonderful trip. Tauck is the best. Take a bathing suit for you have a lot of free time to relax and enjoy the beach, pool etc. I came from the east coast and arrived a day early so I could relax and get used to the time difference. I hope you get Minna as your guide. She is wonderful. A great trip. Enjoy for you won't feel like you are alone at all.

Dining is a huge part of travel. Culinary specialties differ around the world, ensuring visitors an authentic taste of life in the places they’re exploring. But it’s not just the food that tempts my appetite for travel, it’s also the romantic “place settings” that make my mouth water for a unique dining experience I co...
