The site is incredible. Climbing the mountain on the bus was an experience but the driver was excellent. The guide, Anna, was great. She has a wealth of knowledge and presented it well. She was very organized and that made the trip even more pleasant. The Cava winery also presented a very well done survey of wine making including the making of Cava the Spanish "Champaign." Highly recommend.

The evening gave all of us a very good understanding of the Flamenco dance. The performers were fantastic.

What a treat. The Palau de la Musica is an architectural marvel. The guide there was outstanding. Our guide for the walking tour, Nil, was extraordinary. He gave us a marvelous walking tour of the Gothic Quarter and was very attentive to our interests. Highly recommend.

A fantastic evening. The building itself was a delight to see. The seeing of it at night was wondrous. The views of the city from the roof was amazing.

Doing the tour with a guide not only speeded up getting in but also gave us a greater insight of the architect as well as what is now in the building. A don't miss experience.

A real experience. Our guide, Anna, was great. Her knowledge of art and history of Salvador Dali was excellent. Visiting the museum without a good guide would be a mistake. I could have passed much of the art without realizing what I was seeing. The trip to his house on the water gave a good look at the man and how he really lived.

A real cost saver. The check-in process was painless but no better than buying tickets at the entrance. The real value was the cost of the pass versus buying the admissions individually. If you want to see all of the museums the pass is a must.

My Review

Administration of trip was terrible. The bus driver did not speak English and there was no other guide or leader on the trip. The descriptions were prerecorded and the timing did not agree to what we were seeing. Often the recording said "to the right is such and such." All we saw was a high brick wall or hedge. Driver could not communicate when we were to return to bus after lunch and a stop at San Souci gardens. All passengers were confused and upset. I took ill on the trip and asked the driver if I could stay on board during the time other passengers were off the bus. He could not or did not want to understand and made my wife and I get off the bus. The entire trip was a disaster. Not up to Viator standards. You need to get a new supplier.

My Review

Not much of a benefit. Yes you skipped the line at the ticket window but you exchanged that for a line at the souvenir shop instead. Also the ticket was just an ordinary ticket that required you to wait in line until your time on the ticket cam up. The view from the tower was fantastic but the skip the line was no benefit.

The trip was really great. Unfortunately the weather at Eagle's Nest was foggy so the view was not as spectacular as it could have been. But the alpine scenery getting there and back was fantastic.

A real treat. The Linderhof Castle was great to see. So unlike King Ludwig II's other castles. Beautiful grounds and other amenities. Oberammergau was delightful. Not enough time to explore it however. Also we were there on a Sunday so most of the stores and shops were closed. Very picturesque.

My Review

The Swarovski Crystal Worlds was a disappointment. It was a bunch of artists ideas about different concepts that really had little to do about crystals. Was hoping to see something about the manufacturing process but there was nothing. The Swarovski sales floor was very nice but due to our guides poor administration we had restricted time. We got a late start since we had to wait 30 minutes for hotel pickup buses to arrive. Then at Swarovski the guide took forever to get the tickets and then passed out German Guide Pamphlets and then took forever to get the English ones so that we could enter the exhibit thus limiting our time. Innsbruck made the trip worthwhile. It was beautiful and the food and shopping was great. Also the scenery along the bus trip was outstanding.

A chance to see one of King Ludwig II's multiple construction projects. This was quite unique in that it was only partially complete on the inside but completed on the exterior. The hall of mirrors truly rivaled Versailles. The multiple boat trips on the lake were a real treat. The Frauinsel (Island) was very interesting. Great place to have lunch and enjoy being in the middle of a very large Bavarian lake. Our guide was fantastic. The vendor did a great job on all of the tours we took with them.

Leader was very knowledgeable and well spoken. Selection of sites and time were very good. There was an equipment problem (minibus would not start) which the vendor handled very well. Ordered a coach that came with only an hour and a half delay which the vendor added to the back end of the trip. No loss of coverage.

A real good chance to see the San Marco Cathedral but alas not enough time inside the building. Apparently you need a guide to get the front of the line treatment but the guides are limited to the time they can spend in the Cathedral with their tour.
The rest of the tour got us to more parts of Venice that we would have never found on our own.

Too much time on Burano and not enough time on Murano. Only had time to visit one glass factory and no time to see the rest of the island. Not as much to see on Burano but had extra time not needed. Torcello visit was interesting but was a long walk to see the very ancient church on what was a very hot day.

The Vatican part of the your was great. No long lines to get in and a fairly thorough but rushed look at the Museum and time in the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica.

The surprise of the day was the afternoon bus tour where we visited three other Basilicas in Rome. Something that we would have not known to do but was a great addition to our trip.

The guide was excellent. He had a great grasp of art history and made the tour of the museum very thorough and interesting. The Borghese gardens were a bit of a disappointment but the end of the tour overlooking a panorama of Rome was a delight.

A must see. A lot of walking and stair climbing but worth the effort. The day of our tour the weather was very hot and there was little relief from the sun and heat. Depending on the month of the visit this should be considered.

A real disappointment. The food was just OK. The service was not really good. Finally on this part of the Tiber River there is little to see from the water level other than the flood control channel walls that line the river. Not worth the time or money.

Even though we had seen the canals by day the night experience was a delight. The wine and snacks were fine and the boat captain and the tour guide were a trip unto themselves. Seeing the canals by night with all of the lights was magical.

It was great to see Brussels and the old and new portions of the city. It might have been a more complete trip to Brussels if there had been no stop in Antwerp and would have had more time to tour in Brussels.

Alkmaar Cheese Market was unpleasant since there were too many people with only a limited area to view. Either a larger raised platform or some other way to allow more people to see the sales platform.
The chance to see more of the countryside was a plus.
The cheese farm was a treat.

A great way to see the gardens without having to rent a car or use public transportation for a rather long trip. The gardens are a must see. The plant and blossom displays were incredible. Well worth the time and money if you are a flower and garden lover.

Very enjoyable. Though a bit touristy it was fun to see the movie sites and most of all the chance to see the lake district outside of Salzburg on the way to Mondsee.
