Signs are clearly posted once you step outside the airport as to which bus you are supposed to take. You can also confirm with the person taking your voucher. From terminal 2 it was stop 6A or 6B for city center - last stop is the central station.

5-Day Best of Israel Tour from Tel Aviv: Jerusalem, Dead Sea, Nazareth, and Masada

Tel Aviv, Israel

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

My Review

Pros: tour guides give good history of the area. You get to see many historical and religious sites, once in a lifetime experience.
Cons: could be much better if every tour didn't waste time at a sales shop like jewelry etc. Also alot of time is spent shuffling people around to rendezvous points. The hotel for the nazaerth trip is really really bad, outside of town and had ants in the bed. Heard there were ants in every room, but they had good wi-fi (Nof Tavor). Hotel in Jerusalem was good but really non-existent wi-fi at the scottish guest house.
One thing i wish it included was the Dome of the Rock, you Do Not get to go this.
Make sure you bring a towel and bathing suit to both the Jordan River baptism tour and the Dead Sea tour, things they do not explain in advance.

Cappadocia In One Day Small-Group Tour from Istanbul: Devrent Valley, Ozkonak, Pasabag, Avanos and Goreme Open-Air Museum

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Ok the reason I gave this 1 star is because it could be so much better. Don;t get me wrong this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Cappadocia. I was referred to as the crazy guy doing this in only one day. most people were doing 2-5days either from Ankara etc. Ok the tour guide was waesome, he gives good background and history about the areas. He gives you free time in areas.
The negatives are these:
- remove the lunch restaurant - bad buffet overcharge for drinks was 10 lira for 1 beer!
- remove the stop to the pottery place - this was just a really expensive potttery shop
- remove the stop to the jewelry shop, which for those paying close attention was right next to the lunch restaturant - just a big loopdy loop back. (Tip, go across the street to pigeon point to take awesome pictures and haggle to buy souvenirs, I got some of the better deals there.
If they remove these ridiculous extraneous stops, we could of had soooo much more time spent in scenic areas taking pictures and walking around. Some of our scenic stops only alotted us 5min!!!
transportation was very very prompt coming and going.
Hope this review helps.

Whirling Dervish Show in Istanbul

I saw at least half the audience dozing off at some point.
Also tip: there is no rush to the seating area once they open, they are all assigned seats.
Viator gave me a front row seat - pleasant surprise.
If you are in Turkey for a long time and seen everything else, save this for as just a last one more thing to do. Otherwise I wish I had gone to a belly dance show or a Turkish bath instead.

Istanbul Two Continents Half-Day Tour

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

It was nice taking a trip over the Bosphorous, but this could have been so much better.
Aziz was a great tour guide, explaining the history and taking you around.
This trip was really only 2 hours not a half a day, add in another hour of picking up and dropping people off.
You start off with some free time up at the highest point on the Asian side, really nice views. Then you drive around, I forget what places we stopped at except the last stop which was the Sultans summer palace. Really nice palace. This trip could be so much better however. Suggestions: Spend more time in other Asian parts and also make a stop at the Dolambache palace - that would have been really nice.

Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Gulay was really nice tour guide. You see sooo much on this tour. I wish all Viator tours packed so much in like this one. All tickets and skip the lines are included. You have plenty of time to take photos.
BLue Mosue, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace museum, Cistern, only one hour at the Grand Bazaar.
Lunch is included drink separate as usual.
Tip: when you are at the gardens of the Topkapi Palace and taken to the scenic coast view, spend time there taking pictures, you wont have enough free time to see all the side bits and get good coastal pics.
Also, keep in mind this is mostly a walking tour. If you have difficulties moving around and walking up inclines, you might want to reconsider and take a private or self tour.

Istanbul by Night: Turkish Food Tour

My Review

This is the first tour I did on the same day that I flew in. The tour guide: Serhat Kalay is an awesome tour guide. First you are picked up at your hotel and taken over the Galata bridge to Taksim square. He then takes you around mainly on Independence street. You dodge in and out finding gems of restaurants and local places, sampling all types of foods everything from street vendors to awesome grills. tasted everything from street chestnuts and oysters to grilled kebabs and local rakun drink that tastes like ouzo. Must try the tripe soup! Highly Recommend!

My Review

First I have to gripe about other Viator reviewers: Please write more than just "it was excellent" as this tells me nothing about the tour. Please write details, be more descriptive.*Second* Viator can be absolutely WRONG on meeting point details. I almost missed this trip cuz they were wrong as to where to meet, it's not in the square. The only thing that saved me was that there was a tourism office in the square and they told me where to go with seconds to spare. Even the number to call had nobody to pick up. Now then, we went to Fatima 2 days before the big anniversary/holiday they celebrate with a million people. We lucked out, we saw big pilgrim groups, hikers, kneelers, all without the big crowd effect. The place is massive like the Vatican, but the Basilica is not as big but still very impressive, architecture, views, etc. You basically are given free time to go explore, so I just did the basillica, mass area, saw the candle fire area and then went straight to town for shopping and eats. Shopped at both the big square and where they are mixed in with the cafes, one shop i stopped at a young woman was so nice rounding down the prices of everything I asked about without even haggling. Well worth the trip.

My Review

First I have to gripe about other Viator reviewers: Please write more than just "it was excellent" as this tells me nothing about the tour. Please please please write details of what made it good and bad. Awesome day trip to Sintra. You ride up to the top of the mountain by bus and tour the palace which used to be a
monastary which u see in the architecture. Awesome views from different towers you climb. Then you go into town for some
free time where you can shop, taste some cafes, see the Old Palace, and have lunch inside a hotel. The lunch was fabulous
with breath taking views. Another stop was in a town that had a port and small beach, very scenic. The drive en route and
back had lots of beautiful mountainous and beach scenery. Another stop was at sort of the western most part of Portugal,
there was some sort of statue, awesome views cuz ur on top of cliffs and recommend buying the certificate they sell in
gift shop with envelope maybe 10euro. Guide spoke Portugese, Spanish and English, I tipped her.

First I have to gripe about other Viator reviewers: Please write more than just "it was excellent" as this tells me
nothing about the tour. Please please please write details, be more descriptive for heavens sake. ***This was a nice orientation of Lisbon. I think it toured around letting you see some of the major monuments, can't exactly remember since I did a tour everyday. Definitely took us to some coach museum, I loved that it took us to Belem to see both the tower and the exploration monument (my two favorite things but didn't have enough time for each) but was still a surprise as I did not know we were headed there. I paid 5 euro for the tower and sprinted up all the way to top and took some pictures really quick and then ran back down to make the bus. For the monument there is a huge globe in front but too many bozos blocking u from taking a clean shot. Also took you to some huge church where Vasco Da Gama is buried. Then took you to some old art of town that was awesome cuz u walk up this cobbled stone road and see tons of restaurants, some are Fado, and end up in a nice souvenir shop that sells tons of different things I wanted to buy it all, plus you get to taste some wine there and buy bottles if you like. The only reason I didn't buy the wine is because I knew I was being dropped off in the city not at my hotel. The tour guide spoke maybe 4-5 languages, too many different languages were accommodated, throw out the italians haha.

This airport transfer is cheap, prob cuz the airport is so damn close the inner city. They are working on a metro stop, would have been there sooner if cabbies didn't strike about it. Did I mention this is pretty cheap, I took an early flight 5am, this guy didn't help with my luggage as much as my arrival driver. So I didn't tip him, and I usually tip BIG FAT WADS.

First I have to gripe about other Viator reviewers: Please write more than just "it was excellent" as this tells me
nothing about the tour. Please please please write details, be more descriptive for heavens sake. Paulo was the guide, meeting point is right by the big friggin statue. He can be easily missed but should have a pamplet or two in his hands. I called thinking I missed it and the operator told me to look for a guy that was tall and bald, not exactly the right description for this guy, i am not very tall and he was just a little taller than me, he is not completely bald, short hair, maybe a bald spot on top. This guide is awsome! He took me all around tasting food and drinks explaining the local produce and meats. cheese and marmalade I would say no 9 out of 10 times and this was awesome! He pointed out great stores that I later went back to for shopping before I left Lisbon. Wine, olive oil, pork. He shows you places that you would never know existed inside door with hardly any type of signs that were awesome to eat at. You walk all around and see tons of bars and restaurants he tells you about, we even went into a cool church. He walked me to an awsome scenic view where later I had to revisit for more pictures. Have to recommend this tour early so you learn about their food and drinks so that you visit the right places during your stay. i did this tour right after I landed and checked into my hotel, rushed to the metro, figured it out easily, thre's an english option and voila walk to right from the restauradores metro stop.
