Private Departure Transfer: Hotel to Rome Fiumicino Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a class act. Driver was even early for this pickup. Nice vehicle, clean and new, driver well dressed, and got us thru the traffic and on our way to the airport sooner than we had expected. Highly recommend this as traffic can be an issue in Rome if multiple pickups are required. Taxis have the meter running and a 6.50 E meter start on peak/rush hour pickups. Thru Viator and Executive Rent you know exactly how much you are going to pay for the pickup.

Rome Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Been on several Hop On/Hop Off tours and this was the worst! Rome has traffic so you sit in traffic for 20 minutes and then literally speed pass the Coliseum and the Vatican to make up time so that you can't even take a photo!. All on the bus felt the same way. Most of the sites are a walking distance off the 8 bus stops. Some stops were cancelled because of the protests in the piazzas. The lines are long to get on the buses and you have to wait for one or two buses to get on. Upside these buses do come more often then the other lines. But since the route is on the main road and you have to walk off a bit for most of the sites from the assigned bus stop, it is better just to walk it yourself. We got off and just walked the route, it was quicker and we saw the same sites. We road it for the first pass around to get ourselves acclimated but it was a waste of two hours and couldn't wait to get off. Didn't use it after the first two hours.The audio does not line up with the route as there is so much traffic and is constantly stopped. If you can walk it, do it, it is much more time efficient. Don't waste your money. It was not the best way for us to have a first impression of Rome.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Link Arrival Transfer

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a way to arrive! We came in on a shared water taxi and it was fabulous. The check-in was easy and right there at the airport. A short wait for the other party. Very organized. It is a bit of a walk to the water taxi with your luggage, but we all have to do it to get to the taxi dock. The arrival by high speed boat was amazing...what a way to arrive in Venice! Your first impression to see Venice just appear is fabulous.
What an experience. The taxi slows down once you reach the smaller waterway entrance to the Grand Canal so you have a wonderful first experience entering this city. It is amazing. My husband said he felt like James Bond. The experience portrayed by movies and TV does not do it justice! It was amazing and the best way to start the visit to this wonderful city! Just plain awesome! No other way to go. Highly recommend it. Viator always picks the best....

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A nice economical way to get to the hotel. We had a full van and it was fine. The pickups were easy and quick at the airport and the drop-offs went smoothly. Would recommend this for incoming travelers. Van nice and clean and came promptly. Make sure you call the toll free number when you are at baggage claim. As promised it was only 20 minutes before they picked us up and a quick pickup of the others, and we were on our way. Very satisfied with the service.

Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was a wonderful experience. We were picked up on time in Riviera Maya and taken to the booking office. After a bit of a delay and wait, we were joined with others in our bus and took off for the wonderful experience of the Keyote in the Yucatan. It was mysitcal, history explained by out guide. Beautiful scenery.. Unfortunately cur trip was cut short by 15 min as we waiting along roadside enroute for a family who were late for the bus. But still worth thte experience. Wish we had longer, not enough time to take a swim!
Next stop was the Mayan village for lunch and shopping. Nice items on display. We were lucky to see an elder woodworking, so we purchased directly from him, our local artist. A nice flavorful buffet lunch accompanied by talented local mayan dancers. A nice treat! Next was off to Chichen Itza to see the pyramid and the holy grounds. They will filled with locals hawking their wares, maybe a little touristy, but our guide was educated in the history of the area and the tombs and was very informative. Plenty of vendors to haggle with and buy local wares from carvings, to pottery, to blankets to silver and stonework. A nice peaceful ride back.As we were staying in Riviera Maya, a shuttle met the bus giving us a much needed shorter tripback to the hotel. A full packed day, a lot of history and Maya culture. A very good trip. I would recommend it. Well worth the trip.Pleasant dirvers and educated guides.

London Pass

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Although it appears a good deal for the value, i.e. beating the lines, a good thought. Unless you can visit the minimum of 4 places in one day, it doesnt pay. A typical visit to a prime location takes at least 1. 5 - 2 hours to visit and enjoy and there is only so many hours in a day.
FYI You do not beat the lines in Westminster Abbey, nor at the Royal Jewels in the Tower of London, where the lines are very long. No discount or beating the quews at the London Eye either... each/most attractions are only 16 pounds, so do your math before you purchase....

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, and Medieval Village of Lacock Including Traditional Pub Lunch

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was the best trip ever. Our Guide Damien and driver Phil made the day extra special and kept us right on target. Windsor Castle was magnificent, Stonehenge fascinating, lunch at the small turn of the century pub delicious and the tour at Bath informative and special. There was ample time at each location, although you could easily spend more time in Windsor, but we felt we saw everything and weren't too rushed. Our guide was very informative on the way up and back about the areas we passed through and English history and the countryside was a nice change from the city.
The tour thru Windsor is self guided, so you go at your own pace and we were lucky as the changing of the guard was there that day. Stonehenge is self guided and beautiful and woth the trip. But it is a bit windy. Lunch in Lacock was where Harry Potter scenes were filmed and so turn of the century, with some free time there, great for photos. The Roman bath tour also self guided but introduced by our Centurian informative and a lot of history. The town of bath itself has a wonderful glass blowing shop specialty of aqua glass.Some free time to tour the plaza and shops. The day was complete and wonderful. Premium Tours the best value and a nice long, full day and kind enough to drop us close enough for a short cab ride back to our hotel.
