Outer Great Barrier Reef Snorkel Cruise from Port Douglas

Port Douglas, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A first class way to visit the reef. The ship was clean and modern, the staff helpful, friendly and knowledgable, a great experience overall. There were many things to do, even for the non-swimmer. We tried scuba for the first time and loved it. Verra was a great guide. She trained us, went at our pace, and even held our hands until she knew we were comfortable. An Excellent adventure! We stayed in Port Douglas after reading that the bus made so many stops along the way to pick up passengers. That was a good experience as well.

Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip from Port Douglas

Port Douglas, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The scenery was breathtaking from both the train and the cable car. We were given only 40 minutes to be in Kuranda before the bus left for the rainforest. We would have loved time for the butterfuly sanctuary. Very sorry we missed that. The rainforest station is very nice but a bit touristy.

Cairns Arrival Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Cairns, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A very nice comfortable ride. Don't understand why we couldn't schedule a round trip transfer. We ended up paying more by scheduling the trip back to the airport directly through the company.

Blue Mountains Deluxe Small Group Eco Tour from Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I'm sure much of our enjoyment was due to our driver, Paul. He is a local and had lots of interesting information he shared with us. The early arrival to Featherdale was great. The animals were ready for guests and it was not crowded. I also like that the tour allowed us to take the three types of transportation available at the Blue Mountains. That was fun. I do wish the lunch had been a bit more creative. The food was somewhat bland, particularly for the price.

Sydney and Bondi Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We were able to see areas of Sydney we wouldn't have seen any other way. We like that we were able to transfer to the Bondi bus which was a separate route. We did get knocked in the head by a branch while sitting in the upper level.

5-Day New Zealand North and South Island Highlights Trip

Auckland or Christchurch, New Zealand

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

My Review

The details of this trip read that it was a tour. I signed up alone for my first trip to New Zealand. I expected a tour where the same people would be with me for the duration. This was very different. One day, I was transported to a public bus, which I rode for the day to Wellington. The hotel was in an area too far for any real sight seeing. You are left on your own quite a bit. That was OK in a couple of stops since there were things you could do and see on your own. I did enjoy NZ quite a bit and was able to see a bit of both islands. The tour ends in Christchurch. I was moved by what the people of Christchurch have been through. I think you should reconsider the end city of the tour. Access to the city, where most tourist attractions were, is closed. Based on the other Viator tours I've taken, this rated very low.

Auckland Great Day Out

Auckland, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you have only one or two days in Auckland, you will see a lot on this tour. Be rested before you go! The pace is quick, but the experience was great. We particularly enjoyed the sailing experience. The guided tour of the zoo was lovely as well.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We enjoyed all three stops. We read reviews prior to our trip and therefore allowed some time to visit the shops in Bath and not spend all our time in the museum. A fantastic archeological find, and a lovely town. The Windsor Castle was magnificent as well. And Stonehenge was very interesting. Kevin was a fun tour guide. We appreciated his knowledge and humor.
