The Hyatt Regency in Vancouver, Canada is a nicely-appointed hotel with spacious, comfortable guest rooms. The Hyatt is located downtown next to Burrard Station, so many of Vancouver’s must-see tourist spots are a short subway ride away (and as a bonus, the Hyatt Regency is also a convenient spot to catch bus tours like the shuttle to the Capilano Suspension Bridge). Highly recommend!
On our 10 hour tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle, we visited Gulfoss Waterfall, went snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure, hiked through parts of Thingvellir National Park, and visited the Geysir hot springs (home to the geyser after which all geysers are named). It’s little surprise that the Golden Circle is considered one of Iceland’s must-do itineraries.
There are few places on Earth like French Polynesia. This paradise has some of the best snorkeling we’ve ever experienced, with sharks, sting rays, manta rays, moray eels, myriad varieties of fish, corals, and more. On land, the white sand beaches and lush jungles are breathtaking. And staying in an overwater bungalow is the icing on the cake.
Hallgrimskirkja is a beautiful church in the center of Reykjavik. Its central location—and the fact it’s one of the highest buildings in Reykjavik (and Iceland)—means that it has gorgeous panoramic views of the city from the top. It’s definitely worth paying the extra fee to ride the elevator up and see the city.
On the Moorea Cata Jet tour, we drove a mini speedboat around the island, with a couple of stops to check out stingrays, reef sharks, and a secluded private beach.
We stayed at the historic Omni Mount Washington Resort (also known as the Mount Washington Hotel) during the winter. The property is full of character, and we enjoyed our stay there. The skiing was just a short drive away, the views were great, and the staff was very courteous.
The Innside New York is conveniently located in the heart of downtown New York City. In this tour you can see the hotel lobby and our guest room. We enjoyed our brief stay at Innside and were pleasantly surprised to have such a high quality experience at a (relatively) low price. The front desk and room service were attentive and friendly, and the hotel offered unexpected touches—for example, all the beverages in the minibar were free! We also requested some hair styling products from the concierge, and they delivered several complimentary bottles of Tresemme. Overall, a great stay in NYC for an affordable price.
Here’s our video tour of the Sofitel Ia Ora Resort in Moorea. It’s as a great place to spend a week with a lot to do. We definitely recommend getting a overwater bungalow because the views and snorkeling are phenomenal. It’s one of the reasons to go to French Polynesia in the first place! There an infinity pool, a bar, a restaurant with daily entertainment, a nice beach, and phenomenal snorkeling for a resort. The views are also spectacular during the day and at night.
Here’s our 4K video tour of the Luxury Overwater Bungalow that we stayed in at the Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort. It was an amazing, albeit different, experience from what we had at the Hilton in Bora Bora. Our room was fantastic: a great view of Tahiti, not too far of a walk from the restaurant, and perfectly situated for great snorkeling right off the deck. We were in room 108 in case you want to reserve the same specific room.
