Big Ben’s ‘not very big’, the Grand Canyon is ‘meh’ and Colosseum visitors should ‘watch Gladiator instead’: Tripadvisor’s daftest complaints are revealed after tourists slammed ‘glorified violence’ of Tower of London
The Grand Canyon, Stonehenge and the Colosseum are all historic landmarks that millions wish to tick off their bucket lists – unless, that is, they are some of the unimpressed visitors who have left scathing one-star reviews on TripAdvisor.
While some may consider Britain’s Stonehenge an incredible feat, others merely see it as ‘just a pile of rocks’.
Disgruntled sightseers have taken to the travel website to leave a series of one and two-star reviews, branding Kew Gardens ‘just a bunch of expensive trees’, Hadrian’s Wall as a ‘heap of stones’, and the Old Bailey ‘just a big building that sends people off to the nick’.
They have also rubbished the Eiffel Tower in Paris, which was branded ‘a stupid tower that doesn’t do anything’ and slammed the Grand Canyon for not having any Wi-Fi.
Some tourists were left underwhelmed by the world-famous Colosseum in Rome, claiming they would ‘rather watch Gladiator instead’.
After ‘snowflake’ visitors to the Tower of London described its Yeomen Warders, or Beefeaters, as sexist and claimed the tour was ‘too gruesome’, MailOnline looks at some of the most hilariously negative reviews of the great wonders of the world.
