Shared Departure Transfer: Hotel to New York City Airports

New York City, New York

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Too many pick ups with traffic and everyone's schedules. Some in our van were in high danger of missing their flights and this created stress for everyone. We were the opposite and were scheduled for pick up at 2:20 for a 6:00 flight and ended up with hours waiting at airport that we could have used to touring NYC. For the money saved it was not worth it. Take a cab from hotel next time.

Viator VIP: Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and 9/11 Memorial

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a good but complex and long tour. It takes longer than 5 1/2 hours so if you have plans afterwords you may have to cut this tour short. This is what happened to us. It was scheduled for approximately 5 1/2 hours from 7:30 to 1:00 but a 1:15 we had still not made it to the 9/11 memorial and we needed to leave to catch a 2:00 pick up to the airport. Also to fully take advantage of all the hop on hop off features and other items included, you need to plan for a full day. Disappointed that we paid to see the 9/11 Memorial and were not able to get to see it. Tour guide very knowledgeable, fun, and full of energy.

My Review

This was a very fun, entertaining, and delicious tour. However, we were 1 1/2 minutes late due to NYC traffic tie up and the bus would not wait even after calling. This was our issue, but know that they have zero tolerance if your late even a minute. We had a cab take us to the first stop and joined the tour their missing the first half hour but the balance was wonderful ... except for the tour guide who made us feel like second class people because we missed the start

New York City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Don't do this unless you have all day and don't mind waiting in line for awhile to hop back on after hoping off. We did not ever hop off as the lines at each hop off stop were long and often the people waiting could not get on due to bus being full and had to wait for another bus. Stick with tours and don't waist so much time trying to hop on and hop off. Also one trip around the route took 4+ hours without ever hopping off. Also the guide was a bit creepy taking pictures of passengers and flirting with others.

My Review

This worked ok ... not too long of a wait at airport ... but about 2X what was promised. Too many passengers in the van ... 13 of us ... over the legal limit with a child having to sit on a parents lap ... and too many stops for all the different hotels. Save time and aggravation next time by taking a cab for only a bit more.

My Review

This was a good tour that could have been better by having tickets that took you up from the restaurant level of the Eiffel Tower where you had lunch to the higher levels. This is what we wanted to do, however, were told we had to walk to up several flights to level 2 and purchase a ticket to take us the rest of the way to level 3. Half way up to level 2 we gave up ... a lot of stairs.

The skip the line and lunch at the Eiffel Tower was the best part of this tour.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was our best overall tour and we highly recommend it. We were a little bit worried about the Moulin Rouge portion of this, however, it turned out very well. Dinner at the Eiffel Tower after skipping the line was an awesome touch to start this tour out. The boat ride on the Seine was then just fantastic and finally the Moulin Rouge was a best kept secret that we fully enjoyed. A late night but fun, fun, fun!

I would not recommend this option. Our driver was about an hour late and finally arrived after a third call to the service. Not acceptable by any standards.

Excellent tour but the bus ride was a bit long and winding. Suggest that the subway combined with the bus be considered to shorten the duration of travel to the studios.

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Excellent and Outstanding. This is worth the time and money. Driver and the tour guide were excellent and the venues were outstanding. Only draw back was that the seats in the van were not very comfortable on the long drive to the Amalfi Coast. Had the van been equiped with better seats then I would have given 5 Stars and rated this trip as perfect.
