Weird & Wonderful
Viator offers something for everyone - from the traditional excursion to the off-the-beaten path adventureᑮand everything in between. At different ends of the spectrum, Viator has selected a sampling of the weird and wonderful, around the world.
The Dark Side of the Red Light District - Amsterdam, Netherlands
An illuminating and safe view of Amsterdam's Red Light District begins with a drink and chat with a former purveyor of the world's "oldest profession." Travel through the old narrow streets, including "Zeedijk" Street, once the most dangerous in Amsterdam, but loaded today with lively pubs and restaurants.
The Dearly Departed - Hollywood, California
Nowhere else have so many famous (and infamous) people moved on to the "other side." See the location of the Manson Family's murder of Sharon Tate in 1969; the Chateau Marmont - scene of John Belushi's final party and the locations of many other Hollywood notables' deaths.
Jack the Ripper's Sinister Walking Tour - London, England
Experience the history of London beyond the palace walls and spend the evening with a "Ripperologist" who chronicles the tale of Jack the Ripper as he leads travelers down dark and narrow, gas-lit alleyways including four murder scenes - as yet unsolved by Scotland Yard.
Cemetery and Gris-Gris Walking Tour - New Orleans, Louisiana
The practice of voodoo lives on as a unique (and somewhat spooky) element that adds to the flavor of the "Big Easy." Visitors visit cemeteries, cast spells at the tomb of Marie Laveau - the Voodoo Queen, and learn about the mystical ingredients of the "gris-gris."
Murder and a Monster - Edinburgh, Scotland
A two-day tour of the magnificent Scottish Highlands includes the wilderness of Glencoe, the scene of the 1752 "Appin Murder" of Colin Campbell for which James Stewart was charged and hung. His body (and subsequent skeleton) was left hanging for several months. Spend the night in Inverness and soak up the spooky (but stunning) atmosphere of Loch Ness while you keep an eye out for the region's most famous resident (and monster), "Nessie."
Scenic Flight, Private Wine Tasting, Gourmet Lunch - Sydney, Australia
A luxurious scenic helicopter flight over Sydney and up the coast to see the Southern and Northern beaches, a private wine tasting at a winery in one of Australia's leading wine regions, the Hunter Valley, and a gourmet lunch. What more could you ask for out of a day sheer luxury and beauty!
Midnight Sun Hiking Adventure - Anchorage, Alaska
Only in Alaska can travelers depart on their evening hike and experience many more hours of daylight, warm weather and incredible evening skies, as well as the potential for wildlife encounters with moose, bears, eagles, porcupine, arctic squirrels and eagles.
Endless Fields of Lavender - Avignon, France
This summer-time tour includes the wonders of a traditional open market in Provence and a drive along a picturesque road through wild lavender fields to Sault, the "lavender capital" of France. Continue through the lavender to the classic French villages of Coustellet, St Jean, Lioux and Gordes.
Celebrate Mozart - Vienna, Austria
Step back into the 18th century by listening to the Vienna Mozart Orchestra, dressed in historical costumes and wigs perform "The Magic Flute" or "The Marriage of Figaro," set in a true Viennese atmosphere. For 'Musical Acadamies', as concerts were called at that time, these orchestras deliver programs with the most popular pieces.
Himalaya Mountain Flight - Kathmandu, Nepal
Each passenger on this one hour tour has their own window seat from which to admire the majestic 8,000 meter peaks of the Himalayas that tower over lesser known, but just as spectacular mountains stretching across Nepal's mystical landscape.
