April 15, 2013

Enjoy the world’s most popular sights and attractions, and avoid wasting time waiting in line with “jump the queue” access

San Francisco, Calif. (April. 15, 2013) — For many, the warmth of summer means it’s time for a vacation—but being stuck in long lines at the world’s hottest attractions can quickly turn any travel experience cold. Viator.com—the leading resource for researching and booking tours and activities worldwide—delivers insider access by allowing travelers to make the most of their free time this summer with “Skip the Line” entry at top museums, shows and sights around the globe.

France
France and the City of Light in particular are beacons for summer travelers and boast the long lines to prove it. Viator’s skip the line access at major attractions in Paris, Versailles and the Loire Valley can deliver VIP access for this summer’s trip. Viator’s Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour includes priority access to the second level; Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa highlights the museum’s most famous works; and Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour gets visitors up to the Bell Tower in no time.

Italy
Skipping the lines across Italy with Viator means more time to experience gems like Florence’s most popular galleries, da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” in Milan, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Vatican and Rome’s other major sights, and less time waiting in the hot summer sun. Likely to sell out because of it’s amazing value and comprehensive insider access, the Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms and St Peter’s is one of Viator’s most popular activities worldwide and one of many options for special entry to the Vatican. Other queue-jumpers across Italy include Viator’s Skip the Line Private Tour: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Art History Walking Tour hosted by a professional art historian; Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour, with similar access for art aficionados; and the Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour exposing travelers to a layer of history not covered on other tours, including a private viewing of the Capuchin “Bone Chapel” Crypt.

Spain
A true summer hot spot, the ability to skip long lines across Spain in places like Granada, Mallorca, Seville, and particularly Barcelona will lead to some cool experiences. The full or half-day Skip the Line: Best of Barcelona Tour offers a comprehensive view of the city’s most iconic sights, including priority access to the breathtaking La Sagrada Familia, and for those with a singular focus, Skip the Line: Barcelona Sagrada Familia Tickets provides hassle-free entry and a one-hour tour of the iconic Barcelona landmark. In addition to enchanting architecture, culture and cuisine, Barcelona boasts superior athletic talent and the Barcelona Football Stadium Tour and Museum Tickets with skip the line entry will please the sporty set.

USA
Destinations across the US including Las Vegas, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Honolulu are popular for summer travelers from all over the world and Viator’s Skip the Line access across the US helps them make the most of their time away. The Las Vegas Power Pass lets travelers head to the front of the line at many popular Sin City attractions and for the biggest attraction of them all, the Skip the Line: Grand Canyon Skywalk Express Helicopter Tour includes a scenic 45-minute flight each way to the Grand Canyon West Rim, where travelers will bypass long Skywalk lines for direct entry and a personalized tour. In the city that never sleeps, never wait in line with Viator’s insider NYC access like Skip the Line: Metropolitan Museum of Art, Empire State Building Tickets—Observatory and Optional Skip the Line Tickets and the Skip the Line: Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Walking Tour which includes priority ticketing and boarding of the ferry to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Supersize the NYC experience by combining all three of these major attractions with the New York Supersaver: Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty Cruise with priority entrance and admission to all three.
