Thames Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour company for the regular Hop-on Hop-off had a special of offering a two day pass for our regular day pass. This meant that we didn't have to buy this pass in addition to the bus tour. Save some money and buy the Thames ticket if you run out of time on the regular bus tour--prices comparable. Great scenery from the water with the boatsman describing the area and giving a little history.

Warwick Castle, Oxford, Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon Custom Day Trip

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour suggests that tickets to the some of the areas are optional. Well, you cannot even get onto the castle grounds without a $30.00 ticket. The castle was interesting; tours were self guided through reading placards. Stratford-upon Avon was charming. We enjoyed the "Wall of Shakespeare" and even bought a book replica as a souvenir. The bus driver thought he was running the Indy 500 while going through the Cotswolds. We raced through the area where two thatched roof houses were pointed out as we whizzed on by. The guide said that in the summer tours go into some villages. What a disappointment. Oxford as busy and interesting as a university of merit should be. At dropoff, during a Friday rush hour, we waited 30 minutes to hail a cab. Mixed reviews.

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great! The tour company extended everyone's pass to 48 hours. We loved the public art in London and the wonderful mix of architecture through the ages. Hope the "Field of Poppies" near the Tower of London will remain for a long time. Loved the Australian War Memorial with the fallen soldier and the tribute to the Animals of War. Tourists need more than two days to enjoy all the advantages of the Hop-on-Hop-off tours. Great orientation.

St Lucia Shore Excursion: Soufriere Island Delight

Castries, Saint Lucia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

As in many of our Viator tours, the group had only four travelers. Our guide showed the many different aspects of the island. The most informative part of the tour was the visit to a banana plantation where we learned how the fruit was nurtured from sprout to packing for their trip to England. We experienced the sights, sounds and smells of the beaches, mountains, volcanoes, gardens, waterfalls, and Pitons of this lovely and friendly island. Although we had some delicious island bread, We felt the tour could have been extended 45 minutes to include a time to grab a snack or lunch. S and C

Barbados Shore Excursion: Coastal Sightseeing Tour

Bridgetown, Barbados

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour was great. Our guide, Chris, was well informed, pleasant and willing to take us to places not necessarily on the planned tour. For example, we went to a fish market to see a flying fish and to a grocery store to purchase local hot sauce. We were especially impressed with the beauty of the north end watching the huge waves smash into large rock formations. There was only four in our group and the Viator's individual attention scored again! C and S

Nassau Airport Roundtrip Transfer

Nassau, Bahamas

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Transportation was on time both times. Going from the airport, the driver took the back route to avoid traffic. It is more pleasant to enter Nassau on the beach side to see the lovely views.

Bay of Sosua Catamaran Cruise and Snorkeling

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The bad news is that the seas were moderately rough, causing 65% of the passengers to be sea sick. The overcast weather limited visibility and the sea condition made it difficult to enjoy the experience. One personal negative experience was boarding the boat from the beach, getting my only clothes wet even before we go underway.

The good news is that we still had a great time. The crew was super and even taught the passengers how to play the "Dominican Piano"--the steel drums. The food and drinks were good as well as plentiful.

We recommend this trip to all, except children under 10, as long as they are comfortable in the water.
