Viator VIP: Exclusive Access to Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral with Lunch

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a highlight of my trip to London. Seeing the changing of the keys, the oldest continuos military ceremony in the world, inside the Tower of London with only our group of 10 while hundreds of people waited outside was pretty awesome. Seeing the Crown Jewels early when no crowds was great – I had done this years ago on a normal tour and it was so crowded I could barely see them and just wanted to get out of there. The St. Pauls private viewing of the Triforium and the ‘secret’ library was also cool. Such amazing history. It actually rained part of the day but I didn’t mind walking between the locations. One couple did and took a taxi but I’d recommend sticking with the tour guide as Sheila, ours, was fantastic and shared lots of fun facts during the walking portion through the old city. Highly recommended

Wailua River Kayak and Hike Adventure

Kauai, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
A very fun way to spend half a day outside on and in the water. Our guide, Kelly, was great – very knowledgable and friendly. Its possible to find the secluded waterfall we hiked to on your own, but not recommended unless you are really good navigating faint jungle paths and the river. We ran into several lost couples and our guide helped them out. Food was also great. Definitely do this trip if you like kayaking.

Luau Kalamaku and Buffet Dinner

Kauai, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The story part of the show was incredibly well done. Professional dancers with great costumes, coordinated movement, and a real sense of passion for what they were doing. The buffet style food was decent but not amazing - but you don’t come for the food. You also sit at large communal tables of about 10 people. There was a premium option with several courses and private tables if that is important to you. The fire dancers component was incredible and definitely the highlight.

2-Hour Big Island Helicopter Flight from Kona

Kona, Hawaii

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a fun flight with amazing views. Seeing an active volcano from the air is incredible though the most beautiful parts were the lush sea cliffs and Waipio Valley. With current volcanic activity, this is the best way to see actual lava, especially going into the ocean. Alternative is to take a boat and the seas are apparently pretty choppy there though we didn’t take the boat. Note that 2 seats in the helicopter are rear facing so if you are prone to air sickness you may want to request not having those seats. I sat up front and had a great view but my fiance sat in a rear facing seat and didn’t feel terrific though she still enjoyed the views. 2 hours is a bit long all in one go. In hindsight I’d recommend paying a little more and doing the version that includes a stop midway at a secluded waterfall. Getting out to stretch would have been a nice break.

Awesome time. If you have never been on an ATV before and you like high energy fun you must do this tour. Great guides, very safe and professional, amazing scenery and views, super fun riding these vehicles. I want to get one once I get home. The stop at the waterfall for lunch, swimming, and picture taking was incredible. A highlight of our 2 island 9 day trip.

Valentine's Deluxe Dinner and Dance Cruise on San Francisco Bay

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We had a fantastic time on the Valentines day cruise. Ship was spacious and well appointed with 3 decks with 2 live bands and a dj on each floor. Food was very good, though not 3 Michelin star. Service was friendly and attentive. The drinks, though extra were reasonably priced. Overall a fun romantic experience with great views of the city, the Bay Bridge, and the Golden Gate Bridge. An excellent value and highly recommended.
