Little Havana Food and Walking Tour in Miami

Miami, Florida

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a wonderful tour, we had such a great afternoon.
Ralph was our guide and he made the experience so enjoyable, made sure everyone was accommodated.
Little Havana isn't very big so it was easy to walk to the stops, which were plentiful.
All the food was unusual and delicious, drinking right from a chilled coconut on a hot day was pretty awesome.
This tour is well thought out, the stops were in the appropriate order and nothing was boring or repeated.
Highly suggest you spend an afternoon on this tour, hope you get Ralph!

Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My favorite day during our trip to Paris!
After the hustle and bustle of the city riding our bikes on the huge palace grounds was heavenly.
Everything was very well planned out, easy bike riding no hills. You can cover so much more ground on a bike, I feel like we saw more than most people.
Stopping at the market for picnic food was fun and eating the picnic by the canal was even more fun!
Touring the actual Palace is the very last thing of the tour, after dropping bikes off, so you can stay as long as you want and take the train back to Paris on your own. Simple to get to the train station without a guide, no worries.
It was a fun day and we loved it - even got back to Paris in time to go out for dinner.
Our guide, Drew, was terrific - full of energy and made sure we all had what we needed and had a good time.

Paris Food Walking Tour: Gourmet French Food

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We enjoyed this tour so much!
Stephan our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about food and the area so the walking tour was fantastic. We got to explore the Latin Quarter with someone who could tell us everything we were seeing, and ate delicious food as well. We had many cheese varieties, breads, foie gras and plenty of wine. The foie gras was amazing, so delicious here compared to what I've eaten in the States.
I highly recommend the Latin Quarter choice for this tour.

Paris Super Saver: Montmartre Impressionist Art Walking Tour plus Night Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This tour is split into two parts of the day, morning and evening. We toured Montmartre in the morning, nice little walking tour. At the end of the morning tour our guide gave us our tickets to the Museum de Orsay which we could use any time during our trip. We really liked that option, we didn't have to go that very day so we saved it for a cloudy day.
The evening tour was not exactly what we thought it would be, but that's probably our fault. Our guide did a good job of explaining things in the St. Germain area, just didn't thrill us very much.

Bavarian Beer and Food Evening Tour in Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great time!
Kicked off the tour with a beer in the tour office!
The tour of the Beer Museum was informative and enjoyable and the beer tastings were nice. Hans our guide kept things moving along and provided much history, he clearly has tons of Munich beer knowledge.
The cold meat and cheese dinner at the Hofbraukeller was our favorite part - fantastic sampling of sausages, cheeses and vegetables that paired perfectly with the beer.
Used both the regional train and local buses during this tour, but easy since all we had to do was follow the guide.

My Review

Good tour and our guide (as always with Viator) was well educated and informative. We enjoyed getting "behind the scenes" but felt it was a bit over priced. Been on several Viator tours and have been super pleased, just not sure why this one was so expensive versus others we have taken.

Day Trip from Reykjavik: Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing on Iceland's Sólheimajokull Glacier

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Walking on the glacier and climbing up the ice wall were the highlights of the day for sure!
We had a beautiful day, sunny and warm - actually the only day we didn't wear jackets in Iceland and we were on the glacier - weird.
On the glacier our guide was informative and kept us safe.

We stopped at Skogafoss waterfall on the way back, lovely.
It's a long drive to the glacier from Reykjavik, over two hours one way.

Totally make sure you wear stiff toed hiking boots - or better yet - rent the ice climbing boots from the Arctic Adventure office (only about $10). We had hiking shoes, but not stiff boots - this definitely made a difference for the worse on the ice wall climb especially, but also on the hike. The crampons won't stay on if the toe of your boot is too wide, and ankle boots would have been better support for the hike.

Also, check the harness belt before you set out making sure it has all the pieces and straps. One of ours didn't, it wasn't dangerous but wasn't comfortable and had to hold a strap up the whole time walking.
The packed lunch was a little lame compared to other Viator lunches we have had, a basic sandwich on white bread and no beverage - was super glad we thought to take along two large bottles of water since it was about an 11 hour day.

Day Trip from Reykjavik: Cave Exploring in Gjábakkahellir and Snorkeling in Silfra

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Snorkeling in Silfra is definitely one of the most exciting things I've ever done!
Walking through the lava tube cave was fine, but it was pretty tame.
We spent the morning driving to the cave, walking through the short cave and checking out some of the Iceland scenery. It was a super windy day, so instead of a picnic we ate lunch in the van as we drove to Silfra. The sandwich was amazingly tasty!
Once at Silfra we stripped down to our skivvies, or leggings and t-shirts (guys outside, gals in the van - no changing rooms in the parking lot). Then we put on cozy "teddy bear" suits, which were basically like children's snow-suits, a big one piece down suit. Then the diving socks, then the dry suit with built on boots goes over everything. Hilarious watching everyone put these on, they can be a small struggle - with the rubber cuffs at the wrists and neck to keep the water out. Then the diving head piece and gloves. The suit, especially the rubber neck lightly squeezing your throat can be a tiny claustrophobic, but you get used to it before you get to the water, so it's ok.
Finally with flippers and snorkel mask in hand we walked to the waters edge, climbed down metal stairs and began floating effortlessly on the glacier water.
Basically only the skin around your mouth is exposed to the water, which goes numb very quickly - so the 50 minutes in the cold water is not uncomfortable at all.
The visibility is incredible and the colors are stunning!
After we got out of the water and walked a short way - we had an opportunity to jump off a little cliff into the water - a total rush!
Such an exciting thing to float between two continents!

Olgerdin Brewery Tour from Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was one of the most fun things we did in Reykjavik!
Our tour guide Olof was fantastic, she was a great combination of historian and entertainer - what a gem!
The beer was ever-flowing, tasty and Olof presented quite a variety - all the while educating us on Icelandic lore, alcohol history in Iceland and keeping us laughing.
Drinking is expensive in Reykjavik, so this tour is not only super fun - it's a great value.
If you like beer, relaxing with other travelers, learning and laughing - do it! You will not be disappointed.

Rome Walking Tour and Cooking Class

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had so much fun!!!
We spent four days in Rome and the cooking class at "That's Amore" was definitely the highlight of our visit.
The walking tour was fine, gave us a sense of the area and a quick visit to the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain - but cooking with our small group (6 people) and Fernando in the middle of the restaurant was just so much fun!
Fernando taught us how to make three different pasta noodles from scratch, cavatelli, ravioli and with any mistakes we made linguini. :-)
This was not a boring class, we visited, laughed and had a blast through the whole thing - the ravioli pasta was so long we had to stretch out the door into the street. Random people stopped to snap our picture - ha!
Once the pasta was done it was wisked into the kitchen where it magically turned into three fantastic dishes, which of course we ate - along with a couple bottles of wine and scrumptious dessert and coffee.
We will cherish the memories from this afternoon forever!

Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful - so worth spending the extra money for this tour!
Small group with red-haired Rossana as our guide was fantastic - she was very knowledgeable about the area and history.
It was incredible being below the colosseum floor where the gladiators waited for battle, then high above on the top tier with panoramic views of the Forum and Palatine Hill.
Because this tour takes you where most of the public doesn't get to go, you really see, hear and feel the colosseum in a different way than most.
This tour lasted almost four hours but felt like four minutes - the time flew by.
If you can - TAKE THIS TOUR!

3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great tour! Guides were well informed and friendly. Loved the hotel in Sorrento, gorgeous location and lovely rooms. The day trip to Capri and the afternoon in Pompeii were the highlights.
This tour was well worth it!!!!
The only negative was Naples and having to wait an hour in Naples on the return trip for other groups to join us, could lift Naples out and it would have been better.
The return shuttle in Rome left us off two blocks from our hotel instead of at our hotel, which wasn't awesome since we had luggage and it was late at night.
But overall we were happy with the tour.
