I had heard so much about how expensive taxis were in Brussels online. Although expensive too, this took out a lot of the anxiety associated with waiting for a taxi in a country where I had never been. In addition, I knew the price right off and had already paid in dollars. The conversion rate from dollars to euros is not very good now.
Prague, Czech Republic
I visited Prague because i wanted to see a concentration camp with my own eyes. As a historical buff on the Holocaust, it was intense to actually walk where millions of people died. I felt that the tour guide from Viator was very disorganized, and was unable to answer our "unscripted." questions. It seemed like he was just for hire and that day, and did not even know where he was going. Not only that, but he had a hearing problem and could not hear us. The trip was saved by the guide who worked at Terezin and who could offer many insights into the time, and was very empathetic. As a Jew, this tour requires sensitive treatment by the guide. Last year I went on two tours with Viator with great guides. This tour guide was substandard.
Trip was nice but after going ton the Monaceo, Monte Carol etc. small group tour on Monday some of it was redundant. Guide spoke a lot of French even though most of us spoke English which was disconcerting to me. She should have let us know that was her plan.
