Isango Goes to the Movies: Angels and Demons Sightseeing Tours of Rome

1

Angels and Demons Rome Sightseeing tour Castel-Santangelo

If you love Dan Brown’s suspenseful tales, heavily peppered with intriguing clues, you’ll be looking forward to the film Angels and Demons, set in and around The Vatican in Rome and based on Brown’s thriller of the same name.

Opening at a multiplex near you in the second week of May, the film stars Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon, the expert in religious symbols who was the main character in The Da Vinci Code.

With sinister secret societies and overtones of evil in historic places, the story is trademark Dan Brown. Summoned to investigate the murder of a Vatican cardinal, whose corpse was branded with a mysterious mark, Langdon and his scientist colleague, Vittoria Vetra, uncover a centuries-old vendetta and a plot to destroy the Vatican. continue reading

Hollywood Movies with isango! – Slumdog Millionaire Experience and Mumbai Sightseeing Tour

0

Mumbai Slumdog Millionaire Sightseeing TourShining like glow worms in the darkness of this year’s world recession are heart warming tales of hope and triumph. One of the brightest is perhaps the story of movie Slumdog Millionaire, the low budget Indie with no major stars that stormed the Oscars and carried off no less than eight coveted awards. And as we all now know, this film, which stunned everyone by its unlikely success, is a story of outside chance – the boy from the hovels of Mumbai who routed his enemies and found his lady love by winning a TV quiz show.

And Slumdog Millionaire’s grand slam is likely to have all sorts of knock-on effects. According to industry pundits, Mumbai – the pulsating city where the movie is set – may have a tourist boom this year despite the economic gloom.

If you loved the movie and can make the trip, you must go too. It’s well worth it. With sensations and surprises around every corner, Mumbai provides the kind of full-on experience that makes you feel truly alive. continue reading

The Thrill of Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

History, Humour and Horrors at the London Bridge Experience

0

I’m a real scaredy cat – the one who hid behind the sofa during Dr Who and still buries her head in a cushion when creepy music comes on TV. So, when my grandson Josh said he wanted to visit the London Bridge Experience for his 13th birthday, my heart sank.

The London Bridge Experience is a new attraction but I’d heard it involved a trip into medieval burial grounds and a fair dollop of horror. But a birthday promise is a promise and off we went. “Bet you scream,” said my husband, who still bears scars from the time I dug my fingers into his arm during ‘Jurassic Park’. continue reading
