Maui Whale Watch Cruise

Maui, Hawaii

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was a beautiful clear day for our whale watch cruise and the waters were still and calm. We were able to spot many humpback whales spouting, surfacing, showing their flukes and 1 big breach of a mother and her calf. Like anything, it's chance. So you must be patient. Overall, it was a good tour.

Haleakala, Iao Valley and Central Maui Day Tour

Maui, Hawaii

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Weather has lot to do with how good this tour will ultimately be. Maui is well known for its fast changing weather and you must be aware of this when booking this tour. In other words, it is hit or miss. Haleakala was impressive although partially obscured by clouds. The rare Silver Sword plants were very interesting to see. Iao Valley was also very beautiful and dramatic. It was raining when we were there, but this made the experience even better. The rain actually enhanced the beauty and views of the valley, river, waterfalls and Iao needle! Excellent photos! Central Maui was nice and the little town we stopped at for lunch was quaint. Although, I felt that the restaurant we stopped at was so-so, a little pricey and the waitresses had attitudes. Overall, it was a good tour and our tour guide (Judy) was great! Her voice was so cute while narrating our tour. She had a lot of knowledge and was funny. Judy helped make the tour great! I recommend her as well.

London Rock Music Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The London Rock Music Tour was great! Because of all the Queen's festivities that week, we had the tour practically to ourselves! Our guide, Bob, was funny, friendly and entertaining. He was very knowledgeable and took us all over London to see the various rock points of interest. It was a well spent three hours. There was a mix-up with the morning and afternoon tour scheduling, but it turned out to be Viator's fault, not the tour company. I recommend this tour for anyone who loves British Rock like I do!!! A MUST!!!

Paris City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This is a total waste of money if you are on a Paris day trip!!! First of all, it is nearly impossible to find the red bus stops!!! We walked everywhere looking for them! Secondly, if you don't have the time, this bus takes too long to make it's rotation around the city to be practical! We ended up taking a couple of taxi rides! If we did not, we would have missed many Paris sites and missed our train back to England!!! I am seriously considering trying to get my money back because we never were able to use this tour!!! Save yourself the trouble and take a taxi or the metro! Neither are perfect, but they are better than this useless red bus!!!

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Louvre Museum Guided Tour was great! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She took us to all the major points of interest throughout the museum. From the early history of the Louvre to classical sculpture to masterpiece paintings. It was a well spent two and a half hours. The only problem was that it was hard to find the tour office. The office was under a different name and there was no address number to go by!!! That was really a headache! Just be ready to walk, because the Louvre is enormous and not well ventilated! On the plus side, the Louvre is camera friendly. Overall, I was satisfied with the experience and would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see the Louvre highlights.

London Eye and Thames River Sightseeing Cruise

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Both of these activities were excellent! The London Eye was great and the line moved surprisingly quickly. The views were phenomenal! The ride actually lasted half an hour. Just be sure to trade in your Viator voucher for tickets at the ticket building before you get in line, because they will not take your voucher as a ticket to get on. Viator should mention this important fact! We were able to skip the line because we already went through the line once after we found out we had to get the voucher exchanged. They were cool about that. The Thames River cruise was great as well. However, you must know where to go to get the river cruise tickets in exchange for your voucher! Guess what?! It is not the same place as the London Eye ticket building! Both these activities are run by different tour companies and take different tickets. Because we are savvy travelers, we did not listen to the girls at the London Eye ticket building. They wanted us to walk a mile away to somewhere they did not know. Duh! We instead found that the ticket booth on the boarding ramp to the right of the London Eye was where we had to go. After that, we took the cruise and it was entertaining, fun and informative. Our guide was funny and made it interesting. There were plenty of great photo opportunities as well. It was also a lengthy cruise that took us all the way to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Overall, a great tour and worth the money. I highly recommend it!
