As regards taxis trying it on, the one taxi I got in Gdansk was as …As regards taxis trying it on, the one taxi I got in Gdansk was as expensive as a London black cab. Not very far, but about £20 on the meter. The remainder I did with Uber which is cheaper than London Uber. I had one Uber I had to cancel, I got hit with the cancellation charge, I pleaded my case to Uber Poland and got it refunded.When the person above describes themselves as a Eurasian couple, which is a term I am not familiar with, I have to say that I didn't see any black or non-white people in Gdansk in my four days there. Even in an Indian restaurant we were served by Polish girls. I am sure it would be no danger to anyone who isn't white, but it is worth noting.


Something passed on to me by my polish friends even. In some places of Poland people will still be a bit racist. Not that even in London people wouldn't tbh

Ok - I will try and answer your questions in order. Bear in mind I am no …Ok - I will try and answer your questions in order. Bear in mind I am no expert but have been a few times.The main attractions. Well the Christmas Markets would be a biggy if you took advantage of this deal obviously. Gdansk has a lot of history with WW2. It is where the first shots were fired in anger. If that doesn't float your boat then for more modern history is the Solidarity museum and the story behind the first signs of breaking the communist stranglehold on the Slav and Balkan countries. It was a major achievement at the time and for those of us of a certain age it was all over the news but didn't really mean much to me at the time. The city itself is picture postcard stunning in the old town. There are a great deal of decent bars and restaurants just off the beaten track. There is a good guide to what to see here - https://www.inyourpocket.com/data/download/gdansk - just put any email in so long as it is in the xx@xx.com it will accept it but I would recommend adding your proper one as there is a wealth of info on the download and on other cities from that site. Food is very good quality and drinks are cheapish. Cheaper than the UK but not as cheap as other cities in Poland. There is a growing secne of micro breweries and craft beer places which are brilliant and offer modern takes on classic Polish dishes.Is it safe? Yes but I would have a caveat with that answer. As in the UK or anywhere else just use a bit of common sense. You get the odd beggar round the sites but be polite and they don't hassle you. Obviously don't go flaunting your designer gear and iphone off the main city centre but that is just common sense. I have never seen any trouble and found the locals to be very polite and helpful.Is it safe for non Polish speakers. Yes totally. A lot of signs and menus are in English. Most people speak English as their second language and will be as helpful as they can be.Can we move around. Yes - the trains are very safe as are the trams and buses. Again you will get help buying tickets etc. Just remember to validate them! Taxis will try it on but just stick to a set fee in advance.Any other places. Warsaw is immense. Mixing the sprawling new town (which is a bit like London with high rise buildings and busy streets) with the old town which is rich in history and again very pretty to see. Other places of interest are Poznan and Wroclaw. They are more Germanic feeling in that everything is built round a town square. I would say Wroclaw and Gdansk are the nicer places to visit. Again download the guides from the site linked above and see for yourself.Hope this helps.Oh - and as regards the rude comments from some on here which have now been removed - have a trip out to Poland and see for yourself what it is like before commenting. I feel sorry for the Poles that have had to come here to earn money and leave such a beautiful country behind. I would take Gdansk over Crewe any day!!!

Best of all, prices are a fraction of what you see in places like Santorini


Santorini certainly isn't about nightclubs (maybe that was aimed at Mykonos?) - I stayed in Perissa where this is aimed at and while there are bars, the promenade was predominantly restaurants and cafes, with the beach and sun loungers directly opposite. It is also a much cheaper part of the island (some parts are fairly overpriced).

Perissa is a great location to hire a quad from (roads are generally quieter down south, plus a great way to explore the bottom half of the island for around €30 a day), then you just get the bus up to Fira (capital), plus another bus up to Oia (tourist trap / where all the sunset photos come from).

Can highly recommend the Panorama restaurant in the southern part of the island - meal for two overlooking the sunset is more like €40 rather than €100 as you get in Fira and Oia - good destination on the quad bike.

Overall this seems like a stellar deal for the week in Perissa alone. Voted hot.

Any recommendations on which area to stay in Crete? Not looking to hire a car... somewhere peaceful, good sandy beach nearby but also a town/village with some tavernas/restaurants within walking distance. Good bus connections for day trips would be nice too. Don't want any sort of lively nightlife as have kids.

Kalyves is a quiet resort we stayed there in June. Most of the tavernas are on the beaches front so you can eat whilst kids play in sand. Also lovely beaches a couple miles west of chania which have very shallow bays and calm water.

Great effort op.

I'm planning a hiking trip there next year, at the end of April/early may or in Oct, as u rightly point out it's too hot. Also it's peak season so there will be too many people for me.

salerno is a good base for the Amalfi coast. The boat journey out to Amalfi and Positano is really good from there. I wouldn't go in late June / early July, it's just too hot.

The trains in Italy make our rail service look like the third world. Super cheap and very luxurious.

My advice would be to use the freciarossa ones as you get reserved seats, much quicker (260kmph) and free drinks and snacks. Only €16 more for the rome salerno leg.

If you book in advance on the Arlanda Express 'early bird' it is only 154 SEK which is around £15pp.

Yes it is very easy. You could add an extra night in Stockholm if you wanted to this trip as the overnight train leaves 6pm-ish so you only have an afternnon.

I took the Arlanda Express about 2-3 months back, think it cost about £45 for a return ticket. Not cheap, but a quick and reliable service... couldn't be easier from the airport - from within the terminal building you just get a lift down onto the platform where you can buy a ticket from a machine in English language.

When you're in Stockholm, make sure you leave plenty of time to explore the old town - Gamla Stan.

I spend most of my day in the parks so that hotel is fine. In fact unless you are planning to spend a lot of time there I think the Disneyland hotel is a waste of money. Sure it's nice, but I'm only seeing it for a couple of hours a day, the rest I'm in the parks / asleep



You might be sorry, but please can you not insult me? At no point did I insult you or indeed anyone who chooses to stay in the Santa Fe. Actually, the reason I mentioned the Disneyland hotel is to suggest that the deal above might not be the best deal as I'm staying 1 extra night in a 5* hotel with a full meal plan for only £1998 which I think is much better value for money. Regardless of how much time you might spend in the hotel; I would rather stay somewhere nearer the park, with facilities such as a pool and a hot breakfast (you do not get this at the Santa Fe), and I think it's good to provide a balanced point of view. Without resorting to insults.

I know it's a lot more compared to this but it's a 5*hotel with an extra night and a full dining plan (dinner with the princesses alone will cost you 155 euros). The hotel is right at the park entrance and you get extra fast passes for rides for staying there too.

Yes it includes park tickets for both parks, all days (we arrive around 1pm on the first day). The premium dining basically lets you go anywhere with no supplement, so the princess meal and the shows etc are all included you just hand in your dining voucher as payment. You HAVE to book these in advance, 60 days in advance is the allowed amount as you can't just walk in. But the full board is brilliant, for the same price per person as eating in the counter service rubbish you can eat in lovely fine dining restuarants with a nice drink included. I always book through the Walt Disney Travel Co - hotel and tickets only then I book my travel (we're going on the shuttle as it's easier and only £250 return). Other than a bit of spending money for the kids we don't spend much there are we're eating a 3 course meal twice a day!!

Was in summer , not in Xmas. Hotel cost me 1300 Euro for 2 adults + 2 kids, all inclusive, one week.

Not the best in my opinion and have been known to be used by 18s/30s say no more. Nothing wrong with youngsters enjoying themselves but when you have kids or older members with you its not much fun. The Los Chris beaches are a good 25min stroll away but the las Americas beaches are on your doorstep just ignore the timeshare touts just say no with some authority and they will leave you alone. Btw don't forget Ryanair new rules no longer the deals they used to be with their new policy of deliberately sitting people apart so now it forces you to book your seats if you want to make sure you sit together, and now holding a gun to your head to make you book priority boarding so as you can take on your cabin luggage otherwise it will be taken from you and placed in the hold. Kenny Jacobs is doing a fantastic job of ruining what was working fine in my opinion and his latest excuses for this is pure BS the man seriously thinks that customers are idiots.

Parties of two or more travellers may book the entire compartment for themselves. If only two people are sharing the compartment, a child's price is charged for the third bed.

Thank you. Appear to be coming out a fair bit more now the tickets have been released. Still good I think.

Strangely I have just tried again with Delta and it never gave me the option to add hold luggage on, nor the cost or how to do this. I'm genuinely interested in a) whether it's included and b) if it isn't how are you supposed to add it on or pay for it, unless you do it at the airport. I've sent them a tweet so will report back. It would be helpful if you could let me know if you can see an option to add luggage on on the Delta website as I can't on a mobile.

You'll arrive into Toronto around the 18th April NOT February, I'm unsure where you got that from. Yes, luggage is included. Flights are with TAP and I you get 23kg of allowance. I would say if luggage was extra.Lastly, in regards to airport transfers. I find that many people like to explore their own options for airport transportation. With the likes of Uber or similar, as well as public transport I find that my choice of using public transport wouldn't suit everyone. There are far cheaper ways of getting from Niagara to Buffalo and for anyone that booked this trip this is useful link as there is a Greyhound bus as well as a list of transfer companies. I guess some people may also choose to drive. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g154998-s301/Niagara-Falls:Ontario:Arriving.And.Departing.html



If you look at my reply you will see that I quoted you, so that is where I got it from. You priced this up for April, but you replied to someone that there are dates in February and March. No travel expert worth their salt would say this.
As regards luggage, Delta charge $25 for the first case and $35 for subsequent cases, you seem to have missed this out for the Buffalo - New York leg. If you're going to reply, best to check first. Here's some links.

Make sure if you're visiting Koh Rong you also visit Koh Rong Sanloem, it was my favourite island. Seemed there was only a couple of hundred people there, how I imagine some of the more popular islands being before the word was out.

Who ever is lucky enough to go out there, have a great time!

In this case the main flights are £385pp from London to Cambodia return so this does seem to be cheaper than the Bangkok option. As I said it depends on dates but at the moment the cheapest return flight to Bangkok from London is around £335 upwards with China Southern and Air China or KLM/Air France which takes over 30 hrs. Then you need the return flights to/from Cambodia and the additional time and cost for a Bangkok stay, which whilst may appeal to some people, to others may be a real pain if they don't want to spend the time there. One thing to mention is that you say you travel from Vietnam back to the UK and the cheapest route for you won't always work out best for those going FROM the UK to Asia and back.It's always worth looking at different options but in this case I don't think going via Bangkok is worth the hassle V any savings made (if any) and time.


I'm not looking for the cheapest route. I am looking for the route that will cause me the least amount of agro at a good price. My student days are long gone. I'd rather do a few extra hours work to pay for the extra cost. Having tried just about every sensible combination possible I know I have found the best option; especially as I travel with a kid who only turned one yesterday. If something goes Pete Tong I can just book a hotel in BKK for a few quid and sit it out, no visa required. I try not to fly Vietjet anymore to BKK even when their promotion fares are £10 as I've realised it simply isn't worth it.

Just got back from Verona (did a few other cities in Italy, Slovenia and Croatia too). Lovely city and very good standard of restaurants. Lake Garda was beautiful and you could easily stay there for a week and still miss a lot.

Also recommend hiring a car as can imagine it would be tricky by public transport and you'd likely miss a good deal than having the flexibility of driving and making the odd pit stop to take pics or stop for a nice afternoon espresso etc.

Yes I've used the bus myself and stayed near Garda town, although did hire a car in Garda and it was easy to drive, although the bus journey was slower as it did make quite a few stops.

The bus service up and down the east coast of Lake Garda is not too bad.

we used it a few years ago going from Riva Del Garda to various locations on the East side of the lake.

my personal opinion, great deal and perfect if going by car, but if using public transport I would probably swap the Lake Garda hotel to something in a bigger town on the lake like the town named "Garda" as plenty of hotels there at various prices and would not be as remote as Hotel Brenzone (if not driving)

I drove a 900cc Lancia that had a top speed of 50mph flat out. Every car that came up behind me seemed attached to me by a shoelace and delighted in letting me know that their horn worked. Never again. Good post though for those of a stronger nerve than me.



It's really easy to use public transport too. From Verona to the centre. There is then a bus from Verona to Garda although without a car in Garda may limit you a little. Garda is lovely to drive and Verona is much less crazy than say Rome, it's actually quite 'sleepy' by comparison to some Italian cities.
