    We look forward to each week’s Travel With Rick in the e-mail. Your and Andrew’s ziplining video was worth the wait too! Hawaii is so beautiful.

    Our favorite guided tour was a 3 hour tour through the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The young lady was so knowledgeable and took us behind the scenes, and ended with meeting Minnie and Mickey for a photo and being awarded our Mickey ears.

    We are relatively new to Travel With Rick and just finished watching all your Food & Wine Festival videos from last year and our next trip is the first week of this year’s festival.

    Keep up the great videos episodes!

    Hey Rick,
    Thanks for a great zip lining video. You guys looked like you had a blast. Kauai looked like a great place to visit. I did see Jurraic Park. Some of the scenery did look familar. Thanks again for a great video. I really can’t recall the last time I had a great tour guide. I think it was back in elementry school. I guess I need to go on vacation more. Thanks for the pins, it just so happens that I collect Disney pins. See you next week.

    Thanks for another great video! The scenery in Kauai looks absolutely beautiful!!

    I had several great tour guides on a trip to England. They had some great stories and we got to see things that weren’t normally shown to “tourists”.

    Thanks for a great show. I haven’t had any tours with guides some day I will. Thank you can’t wait for the next show.

    Rick, I love your website especially your adventures onboard the Disney Wonder. We were on the Disney Wonder 7 day Alaska cruise the starting on June 4, 2012. We had a blast. I am currently writing several posts about it at

    You asked about our favorite tour guide. I just posted a video showing my favorite tour guide on my blog. She did the Street Car City Tour in Skagway, Alaska. She had a theatrical background and often acted out parts of the history of Skagway.

    You are welcome to post any of the videos or pictures from my blog just link back to my blog. I am working on addition posts on the food, ports, shows and more while onboard the Disney Wonder.

    Again, I love your blog. Thanks for the great videos and wonderful information.

    Hey Rick and Andrew,

    That was so fun. That is just the kind of tour I would like to take when I go to Hawaii. A good travel agent who can hook you up with this kind of tour is priceless. Many years ago my brother and I took a guided tour of the Waipio Valley on the big island of Hawaii. The tour guide was a native Hawaiian. It was a fantastic tour. I felt and understood so much about the Hawaiian people by taking the tour from a native Hawaiian. Contrast that to when I was traveling in Mexico (a long time ago). I traveled by myself and didn’t join up with any tours. I walked all over the Mayan ruins but learned very little about them or the people.

    See you next week.

    That adventure is so AWESOME! What a memory! I have to do that, I just need my boys a little older, then we are in! Hearing the history and seeing the movie filming locations is just so cool and a great tour guide like y’all had, so special! Thank y’all so much! My favorite tour guide was a retired Colonel giving us a tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield! Y’all keep smilin’, looking forward to next week’s show!

    This type of video is what really sets your site apart from other travel sites. You can really say you have ‘seen Hawaii’ on an excursion like this. That was a great travel itinerary you put together for this trip. And Andrew’s camera work was fantastic!

    Best tour guide I’ve ever had was a Louisiana swamp tour. Tons of info and a fun boatride through the backwaters of eastern Louisiana. It is a blast to go with someone on a tour who adds their knowledge and enthusiasm.

    Keep up the great work (if you call it work)!

    I’ve got my Aulani Statuette right here watching with me. I loved the zip liniing! I’d love to try that, but I’m afraid I’d chicken out. I’m afraid of stopping in the middle.
    I have not r4eally had a tour guide, so I can’t pick a favorite. I’m usually the Disney World guide for my parties, but i don’t think I can choose myself.
    I seem to have missed an episode. Been busy. So I’ll backtrack now, and catch that one.
    Thanks for the video, and the statuette.:)

    Great episode! Upside down zip lining looks fun!

    I had a great bus driver in Vegas one time that gave us some great tips and interesting facts on the way to the Hoover Dam. And the Dam tour guide was funny asking if anyone had any Dam questions!

    I didn’t know that scene from Indy was filmed there! Pretty cool! That’s also cool about the importing and how it was done so they wouldn’t have to import as much later.
    That field after the tractor has to be the part in Jurassic Park where I think he’s first seeing them outside, and they have to duck a little behind one of the hills as the dinosaurs are coming in a herd.
    What kind of food did you eat?
    Funny you said the Wild Africa Trek thing, as that’s what that footage reminded me of as well.
    Wow, if Andrew didn’t have enough weight, I definitely wouldn’t!
    Best tour guide experience? That’s a tough one as a few come to mind. There was one in Aruba when I was like 8? We did a jeep safari and stopped at some cool places along the way like these big rocks, at least one of which was cut out so you could go in it, and it had a barred window, and then we went to a bat cave and this cool natural bridge, but probably the most memorable thing about the tour guide was that my brother got scraped with fire coral, and the guide found a cactus, snapped off part of it, and stuck it on my brother for its healing effects. Pretty cool, and very nice of him to do that. Another one was when I went to Martha’s Vineyard when I was maybe 12? We did a tour in John’s Taxi, which was actually one of those old paneled station wagons with the door in the back and that back seat facing the back, and John was very personable. He took us to the Swedish Bakery and got us some shortbread and Beach Plum Jam…and I have been a fan ever since. We also got some oysters in the fishing town there. Another one was one of our tours on Oahu. It was a van tour, and it started out with him giving us those necklaces with the big brown chestnut-looking things, and he played great Hawaiian music during the ride like that Hawaiian version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World”. He also took us to this beach where we had a nice picnic with Hawaiian food, and then to a local beach where we saw a sea turtle! Pretty cool.
