Island Breeze Luau on the Big Island

Kona, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a fabulous luau and a really fun evening for our whole family. The setting was beautiful, right on the water, the staff was very nice and the food was delicious! My husband and I brought our 8 month old daughter and it was super easy - they set us up with a high-chair and there were other kids there as well enjoying the show. Great food and great entertainment!

Small-Group Granville Island Market Tour

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Amazing tour and a fabulous way to experience Vancouver's Granville Island market. I had visited the market previously, but this tour really was the best way to visit and I can highly recommend it. The tastings were generous and very, very tasty. You're definitely full at the end of this tour! The tastings we had that day included fresh crab cakes with optional wine pairing, cured meats, local cheeses, delicious coffee and hot chai tea, local produce and a huge honey glazed donut. Our 2 guides were very personable and knowledgeable about the foods and the market and things ran super smoothly. The group size was small and very manageable, plus I brought along my 4 month old baby and there were no problems at all! Fabulous afternoon!

Viator VIP: Napa by Helicopter with Wine Tasting and Lunch

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was unbelievable - pure luxury and perfection from beginning to end! After being picked up from our hotel, we were driven across the Golden Gate Bridge where our helicopter awaited us. The helicopter was beautiful and brand new. Then we were whisked away for a flight over the beautiful Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley where we then landed right in the vineyards of the winery! It was amazing! The winery tour host met us right upon landing, gave us a private vineyard and crush pad tour, followed by a private, sit-down wine tasting. Lunch was delicious and provided by the famous Oakville Grocery - there was so much food that we actually ended taking some back with us. Then on the way back, we did a great city tour in the helicopter, seeing Alcatraz and the skyline. Plus, they actually flew us UNDER the Golden Gate Bridge! Amazing! Overall, this tour was A+ and was an unforgettable experience.

Viator VIP: Exclusive Alcatraz at Night Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Absolutely amazing! Being on Alcatraz Island at night is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity and should not be missed. I have been on the regular tour of Alcatraz and I really liked that this tour was lead by a park ranger, not an audio tour, and that we went into places that aren't on the normal tour. Seeing the city lights from the island and being on Alcatraz in the dark was something I'll never forget. Also, being away from all the crowds made it even better!

My Rating

My Review
Absolutely fabulous day and evening in the wine country! Tour was very smooth from start to finish and we really felt the "VIP" treatment. Seeing behind the scenes of the wine train was such a cool experience and we were even able to board the train (red carpet treatment included) at a location that is only used for celebrities. The champagne stop and the entire meal on board the train were both fantastic. Amazing experience all around.

Fabulous tour! From start to finish, this tour was so much fun. We went to total hidden gems, tried amazing cocktails, and learned a lot about what we were drinking and how it tied into SF history and the cocktail revitalization in downtown. I have lived in San Francisco for almost 10 years and all of the bars we visited were new to me - and I'll definitely be going back to them. Our tour guide was not only super personable and enthusiastic, but also incredibly knowledgeable.

Amazing day out on Russian River! I did the half day trip and it was a really nice experience. Check-in was super easy and the briefing before we set off was informative. The stretch of the Russian River that we canoed down was beautiful - no buildings really, just great scenery, and super easy for paddling. There was plenty of space in the canoe for a cooler and lots of great spots to stop at along the way. Great for people of all ages!

Wine Country Tour by Horse and Carriage

Sonoma County, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Fabulous, one-of-a-kind day out in the beautiful Sonoma wine country. Pulling up to a winery in a horse-drawn carriage makes for quite the entrance! I have been wine tasting in this area several times before, but this was a really unique and special way to visit wineries. Going through the vineyards, we were close enough to reach out and touch the vines and the guide had very interesting historical and wine making info along the way. We were served a delicious and relaxing lunch at one of the wineries and the table was set with table clothes, nice outdoor plates and cutlery and the food was perfect - organic deli meats, bread, local olive oil, cheeses and fruits. I can highly recommend this tour for visitors and locals alike!

Great evening out! I am a local San Franciscan and hadn't seen Beach Blanket Babylon in years. The show was hilarious, very current and up-to-date, and overall a really fun night out in North Beach. The costumes and singing were superb and the iconic headpieces were amazing. Redeeming my Viator voucher at will call was super easy and there were hosts right at the door that showed us to our seats. I highly recommend this for visitors and locals.

My visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium was definitely one of the highlights of my trip down the California coast. The exhibits are great! The sea otters are a blast to watch and the jelly fish were completely mesmerizing. During my visit, they had a special exhibit on the sea horses that was absolutely amazing - who knew that male sea horses are the ones that have babies?!?! Great attraction for the whole family.

Amazing night in Napa Valley! The train is so cool, with a great vintage feel and first-class service. We had the late dining option, which I really liked, because the first half of the evening was spent enjoying cocktails, wine and delicious appetizers while relaxing in plush swivel lounges and looking out the windows at the famous Napa wineries. When we were ushered into the dining car for dinner, we were really pleased by how beautifully set the tables were. The food was exceptionally good and everything on the menu sounded really great. This was a fabulous experience and I can very highly recommend it.

Buenos Aires Dining Experience: Empanada Making, Steak, Wine, Alfajores and Mate

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What an amazing experience! My husband and I visited Buenos Aires on our honeymoon and whenever we travel, we love to learn how to make local food (and of course we love eating it!), so we decided to book this tour. We are so glad we did. Upon arriving at the very posh location in Palermo Hollywood, we were greeted with a cocktail and introduced to the other guests. Then everyone headed upstairs to a modern, comfortable dining area where we were given an introduction by the amazing staff. We learned how to make empanadas, had an empanada-making contest and ate the empanadas along with absolutely delicious appetizers. Then it was time for the main course - a gigantic, beautifully cooked filet! Throughout all of the food and tastings, the staff was teaching us about Argentinian culture and ways. After dinner, we were taught how to properly make and drink the famous mate and we made our own alfajores for dessert. Plus, from beginning to end the Malbec was flowing!!! This was a great way to spend an evening in BA and not only did we eat and learn how to make amazing food, but we also learned a lot about Argentina and met some very nice people.

Fabulous night out! My mom and I really enjoyed this dinner cruise. From start to finish, this was a really fun and delicious evening. All of the courses were really nice and the lobster was impressive - I hadn't had a full lobster in years! I was so full after all the food. Our window seat was perfect for relaxing while we ate and watching the stunning scenery. I was also really impressed by how reasonable the alcohol was; there were bottles of wine and Champagne starting around only $15-20. The timing on the cruise was perfect, we never felt rushed and the sunset was gorgeous. Great deal and great night out!

Waikiki Ocean Club Admission with Optional Water Sports

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Such a cool idea and an amazing day! This was the perfect way to really enjoy the great weather and tropical waters of Waikiki. Everything you'd ever want is on this floating island. I mainly used the comfy lounge chairs on the top desk to relax in the sun and drink some cocktails while enjoying the great views of Waikiki, but I also snorkeled and tried out the trampoline and the diving platforms. The water was much more calm than I though it'd be and it was crystal blue - great for swimming and snorkeling. The ocean club is very clean and the staff was super friendly. The shuttle was easy and located close to most the big hotels. I didn't try it, but they also have scuba diving lessons with what looked like really state of the art equipment and one-on-one lessons. Highly recommend this!

Wow! What a fun experience! I had never been to a rodeo before and didn't know what to expect, but I had an amazing time. The rodeo was fun, exciting and easy to follow and learn. All of the surrounding events within the park were really great; there were tons of rides, shows, showcases and yummy food. The town of Calgary really comes alive during the Calgary Stampede and the whole town embraces the event. The event was organized, with easy transportation and very friendly people. This year, the Calgary Stampede was celebrating their 100th year. The final, closing show was absolutely amazing! The show had dancers, acrobatics, a famous country singer and the best fireworks show I've ever seen. I can't wait to go again!!!

My Review
Such a great experience! We really enjoyed our visit to the Britannia Mine Museum. It is right between Vancouver and Whistler and is located on the stunning Sea-to-Sky Highway. The exhibits and video at the museum were very interesting and the ride into the mine was amazing. It was so cool to go into an actual mine and the best part was learning about how mining has changed over the years and to see all the generations of equipment. Plus, they even turn off all the lights at one point to see how working in a mine really used to be. Our tour guide actually used to work at the mine in the 70s so he had a ton of great stories and insight. I can highly recommend a visit!

What a great way to spend a morning on the Big Island! The kayaking was done at a good pace and we took frequent breaks to listen to our guide "talk story" and tell the group some Hawaiian history. John, our tour guide, was super nice, informative and knowledgeable. The snorkeling was amazing. There were so many different types of fish and sea life. On the kayak journey back, spinner dolphins were all around us! It was such a great experience.

What a great way to see the Grand Canyon! We were picked up right on time at our hotel and the rest of the tour ran just as seamlessly. The airplane was very comfortable, seating 8 passengers plus a co-pilot seat and of course the pilot. Our pilot was super friendly and made everyone feel really at ease. The flight was beautiful to and from the Grand Canyon. We took the afternoon flight, so the flight back to Vegas was spectacular due to the sunset views, great Grand Canyon views and we flew right past the Hoover Dam. Once at the Grand Canyon, I liked that you had free time to explore at your own pace. We did the skywalk which was really amazing! The lunch that was included was huge and quite good, and consisted of the bbq meat of your choice, a couple sides, a desert and hot and cold drinks. The whole tour was great from beginning to end and I can highly recommend it!

This tour was absolutely amazing!!!! The experience of soaring over the forest will be something that I'll never forget. From beginning to end, this tour was seamless. Our two guides were very enthusiastic and fun. While we were climbing and exploring the forest canopy from where we zipped, the guides taught us about the local wildlife and rainforest. I did this tour in December and the scenery was breath taking. I'm glad that there was a practice zip before heading to the forest, as it got me prepared for the big leap! On the last zip line, the guides taught us how to do tricks, including going upside down - I did it and had a total blast! I can definitely recommend this tour during winter or summer.
