dallas sightseeingIf you’re traveling to Dallas, Texas, for the first time or for the tenth time, you might not be thinking about seeing the sights. Even though Dallas may not have as well-known a reputations as other large cities in the United States, it still deserves to be explored – thoroughly! Dallas is a big city that is full of charm and excitement, and the sights are definitely worth seeing. Here’s our short list of fun activities in the area.

1. The Executive Segway Tour [x]

We detailed a few reasons why you should try a segway tour awhile back, and Dallas, Texas is the perfect city for it. This particular tour is the most popular one in the city, and it will take you to several famous locales in Dallas, including the JFK Memorial, and Dealey Plaza, which earned its infamy after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Anyone over the age of 14 is welcome, so grab those teens looking for some adventure and join the fun.

3 Reasons To Try Segway Tours

Monday, January 20th, 2014

The Segway PT might just be the most underrated form of transportation in existence today. It runs on a battery, so there’s no need to worry about filling up a gas tank or keeping your carbon footprint in check. It balances itself using computers and motors, so you won’t fall off while riding around, and it keeps you moving at the perfect pace (roughly 12 miles per hour).

Still, when people visit a new city, most opt for a bus tour. Those who enjoy the open air might try a bike or walking tour, but the Segway tours are often overlooked. Well, we’d like to change that. Here are three simple reasons to try a Segway tour. (more…)

When Should You Take a City Tour? (A Quick List)

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

1. If it’s somewhere you’ve never been.

Chances are you’ll feel completely lost when you touchdown in a brand new city. Your GPS (or old-fashioned paper map) will help you get around town, but it can be difficult to familiarize yourself with a place if you’re constantly checking to make sure you’re headed in the right direction. Take a city tour to get the lay of the land, and figure out what popular places are further uptown vs. which highlights are on the west side. Sightseeing tours are great for helping new travelers find their bearings – while fawning over those sweet spots you came for. (more…)

Floating Markets

Monday, May 13th, 2013

I’ve got a confession to make: I may have a “thing” for floating markets.

Here in the United States, rivers and streams are reserved for fishing, rafting, swimming and a plethora of other exciting activities. Grocery shopping, however, is not on that list. This is why the idea of experiencing commerce on-board a canoe is just plain intriguing. How does everyone navigate around each other? Is it anything like rush-hour traffic? Do they offer up samples like in American markets?

If you follow us on Tumblr, you may have already noticed we show some serious love to the floating market. You might have some similar questions,which is why we’re happy to announce our new tour, dedicated to these mercantile gems! (more…)

April Diamonds

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Are you one of those lucky April birthdays?  Your birthstone is the diamond!  Not just any stone but THE stone of stones. The Greeks gave us

the name. It is true what the father said in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, every word does come from the Greek. Adamao means  I tame or I  subdue, the idea was to name the hardest substance in the world – hence diamond. And taming or subduing the hardest substance is quite a feat.

The people of India were the first to try. It was first mined there and their name for it certainly showed an awe for its brilliance. In Sanskrit it is translated as thunderbolt and  Indra’s weapon. Indra is their warrior god of Hinduism. The diamond was mentioned in Sanskrit manuscripts as early as 4th century BC.

The Indians reverenced their power and the Greeks named the beauty and so,  it was now up to the European monarchy to make them the must haves of the world. The 13th century royal houses began to use the gems alongside pearls and wrought gold. In fact Louis IX of France did not want to share them at all and declared them strictly for Kings. One hundred years later the women were wearing them too and by the 17th and 18th centuries they dominated all jewelry everywhere. And they were getting bigger and cut more expertly.

We have Vasco da Gama to thank for opening up the diamond trade route in 1499 from India to Europe. Hooray! Skip forward and diamonds (although never lining the streets) were abundant in the 18th century. They thought it only appropriate to wear diamonds for evening events and thankfully that has changed. But the French really blew open the diamond market to the average Joe with some cash when they sold the French crown jewels to the highest bidder in 1887. No wonder the English still hate them! How vulgar.

Today diamonds are actually mined in 25 countries. Our understanding of geology has helped find diamond deposits on every continent except Europe and Antarctica. Who would want to be mining in Antarctica?

Now, there are many places the diamond lover could go in the world to satisfy their diamond urges. If the process of cutting the diamond and making it twinkle and shine is top on your list – the Diamond Factories of Amsterdam are a must see. Visit those world cutters who make a lump of rock into the stone we all cannot do without.

Have fun this viagra aus usa month with your diamond obsession.

Shereen Travels Cheap in LA

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Building where Die Hard was filmed (Courtesy of Shereen)

I tried so many brand of this product over 10yrs. This product is the best. Viagra for sale? High quality of the medications we offer is the subject of our primary concern.

Shereen is still out and about with Reserve123, and her most recent stop was Los Angeles. It wasn’t her first trip to the city, and it definitely won’t be her last visit, but we were able to help her and the Mister explore the town by night (safely). In my opinion, nighttime is when you can truly get to know a city; the experience is completely different once the sun sets. It seems Shereen agrees, since she was excited about the tour.

 

“We had a wonderful time on our tour and were a little sad to see it end. We learned more in three hours than we did in three days and I would highly recommend taking it or a similar tour while in Los Angeles. Reserve123 did all the work for me in setting it up… If you have a large travel group, this would be an excellent activity, but it’s also great for just a few of you.”

 

Los Angles By Night from Anaheim

We’re so thankful to Shereen for letting Reserve123 set up a few of her recent sightseeing activities, and we’re glad she let us contribute to her and her husband’s traveling adventures. If you’re interested in the tour mentioned, find it here (and check out some of our other offerings in Los Angeles… or anywhere)!

A full review is available on Shereen’s site. Careful, it’s a great blog. You might get lost in her posts!

 

Happy travels.
