Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

While Zurich is completely unimpressive, the Alps are absolutely magnificent. You will definitely be exhausted by the end of this trip, but it is absolutely worth it! Our guide (Kee?) was great - very enthusiastic, knowledgable and entertaining. My husband is not a fan of gondolas, so we knew upon reading the description that the cogwheel was the way to go, and we could not have been happier with our decision. The views up the mountain are phenomenal, and well worth the 2.5 hour climb. Unfortunately it was a bit rainy and super hazy/foggy, so views at the top of the mountain were not ideal. However, the train rides up and down the mountain really made the trip for us. There are, however, 2 things to be wary of. 1. - food and drink at the top of the Jungfraujoch is a VERY overpriced (guess that's a Swiss thing!), and very limited. Bring water and snacks if you can - you will definitely want something when on the train. 2. Altitude sickness is no joke - my husband and I felt like we'd gotten the tar kicked out of us. We had massive headaches and felt sluggish for a good portion of our time at the top. So drink lots of water and take it easy!

Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very good tour - just wish there had been more free time to explore Segovia. Avila was fine, but could have done without it. The Segovian aqueduct is amazing and the cathedral and alcazar are also worth seeing.

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

A complete rip-off. At almost $100 a person, I really expected more from this tour, and feel quite cheated. The tour guide (Ana) was sweet, but impossible to understand, and was extremely rushed in her delivery of information. Really did not do or see anything worthy of the price of this tour. Avoid

Rome Departure Shuttle Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Not recommended!
First off, getting in touch with the local Italian company that Viator works with was a complete nightmare. I ran up an 8 Euro phone bill from my hotel because I had to call these people 5 times. Someone would answer the phone without even saying a word and put you on hold for a good 10 minutes. Finally, on the 5th call I actually spoke to a human being. The woman I spoke with was incredibly rude, and quite frankly, pretty dumb. I gave her my voucher # and explained that I was confirming my hotel pick up. After putting me on hold twice, she proceeded to inform me that I would not be getting picked up outside my hotel, and would have to meet the van at a nearby Piazza at 10:45 am. On the day of our flight, my husband and I arrived at the meeting point at 10:30 am. At 11:15 we started freaking out, and seriously considered just taking a cab. At 11:30 the van finally showed up. The driver threw our bags into the trunkq and pushed us into our seats without even acknowledging that he was 45 minutes late. And to add insult to injury, he drove like a lunatic, and was on his cell the entire time. Avoid this transfer at all costs - it is not worth the anxiety!

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
Horrible - save your time and money!! During our 2 weeks in Italy, my husband and I had 4 tours through Viator - all of them were fantastic, with the exception of this one. This is not a tour at all - it's literally a motorboat which drops you off at the three islands and you are left to fend for yourself. The Murano "glass blowing tour" was a joke - the demonstration with a "glass master" literally lasted 2 minutes. Torcello is basically a deserted island with nothing to do, and the only sights on the island (the Church/bathroom) are a good 10 minute walk from the drop off point. Torcello was a complete waste of time. The final island - Burano was by far the most interesting, and that's not really saying much. There are overpriced tourist traps and bakeries and that's about it. Save your time and your money - the other Viator Tours are infinitely better.
