Private Tour: Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

Santiago, Chile

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our driver was Franciso and our guide Laurina. Both were friendly and knowledgeable I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this tour. We were able to tailor the time we spent in places, miss some completely and they were totally accommodating. Before going to Santiago so many people said you must go to Vina-Del-Mar and Valparaiso and the day did not disappoint. Valparaiso has interesting, brightly coloured houses, the port, amazing murals and it was an interesting place to visit. We had lunch in Vina-Del-Mar overlooking the ocean and whilst it was good to see the town, it may not have stood out for me, except there was a Moai, which was a complete surprise. Bucket list item check! Great day.

Private Tour: Santiago City Sightseeing

Santiago, Chile

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our driver was Franciso and our guide Georgina both were friendly and knowledgeable. As we were staying in Bellavista we started by going up Cerro San Cristóbal and then around the city. As Franciso drove Georgina pointed out the architecture from the different eras and as we got closer to our hotel again, suggested restaurants and places to go. This is a good introduction to Santiago.

Adelaide Super Saver: Adelaide City Sightseeing Tour plus Barossa Valley and Hahndorf Tour

Adelaide, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We enjoyed both of these tours. On the City sightseeing day the Haighs Chocolate Factory was unexpectedly closed so that was disappointing however for the rest of the time everything else went smoothly. I am glad we added the river cruise when booking... The time on the boat went quickly however it was probably the most enjoyable part of the first day for me. This was a good introduction to Adelaide.

The second day we went to the Barossa and Hahndorf. It was a faultless day. The Barossa is beautiful and Hanhdorf is charming. The vineyard visits were enjoyable, lunch was very good and it was a really balanced mix of places. The drivers who did the pickups and the tours on both days were knowledgeable and professional and the time at the different stops were just right. Impressive.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Departure Transfer

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Such a nice (and easy!) way to depart from your hotel. We took the guide option and he was interesting and helpful. It's on the pricey side but I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are travelling with someone older, or just looking to make life easy.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I have done this trip previously and found it really enjoyable. Everyone likes Murano and Burano but I also really enjoyed Torcello (true, there is not much there but that's part of the beauty). This time we were sick and needed to cancel so I just wanted to let you know how fantastic their local support was. First they let us change on the same day (we were hoping to be better the next day)... then they let us cancel on the same day and still get a refund. Nice work finding such a 'customer driven' tour company Viator. Very impressive.

Eiffel Tower Dinner and Seine River Cruise by Minivan

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I travelled with my Mother and this was her favourite part of our trip. It was great having time to explore the Eiffel Tower before/after dinner. The food and service was very good (much better than I expected from a tourist locale) and I really enjoyed the cruise. Our guide was good too, he was there waiting each time we were due to meet him and very helpful.

My Review

This is a good introduction trip to get an idea of where everything is and I would definitely recommend it for the beginning of your trip. It poured with rain the day we went but the driver did whatever he could to make it easier for everyone.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It's just great when you arrive after a long flight to grab your bags and then really not need to worry about anything to your hotel, other than recognising your name on the 'welcome' sign. Our driver was delightful and the van was very comfortable. Faultless.

Private Departure Transfer: Los Angeles Hotels to LAX International Airport by Sedan

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This really takes the stress out of travel. The driver was friendly and the entire process could not be easier… It’s great to know exactly how much it is going to cost in a city where traffic can be an issue. I would book this again.

Private VIP Limousine Tour of Los Angeles

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a lot of fun… cruising around LA in a stretch limo is a great way to spend ½-day! There was a mix-up with my driver/guide but I ended up with someone who was knowledgeable and flexible with regards to where I wanted to stop and what I wanted to see so I was happy with how it turned out. The Farmers Markets and The Grove were a highlight for me and I saved on some of the other stops to spend more time there, which was well worth it.

It’s great when you arrive in a new city or after a long flight to not have to worry about where to go, or to wait in line for a cab or bus etc. The driver was friendly and waiting for me when I arrived and it’s good to know exactly how much it is going to cost in a city where traffic can be an issue. I would book this again.

Vuda Lookout, Sabeto Valley and Garden of the Sleeping Giant Tour

Nadi, Fiji

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour is a great introduction to Nadi. The walk through the Orchid farm was lovely and lookout was great (once you are there - it is a bumpy road). Would recommend doing at the beginning of your trip if you are doing the morning tour which includes a stop at the Fruit and Veg Market. Enjoy!
