Vancouver Trolley Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The destinations on this tour are fabulous, however the trolley itself is very old, uncomfortable, musty and noisy. The trolley drivers also do not stop at every stop, therefore you must wave frantically to make sure they stop to pick you up. Make sure you print the schedule from their website to determine pickup times and locations. Regardless, this trolley is the best option and definitely cheaper to purchase on Viator.

Highly recommend getting off at the stop that catches the Ferry to Granville Island, then take the Ferry back to the Yaletown stop, and then get back on the trolley at Yaletown...it's a great detour! If you get off near China Town or Gas Town and are not familiar with Vancouver...please be careful while walking Hastings Street.

Downtown Vancouver is gorgeous and should not be missed. We were really pleased to see all the sites this tour has to offer.

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is something we've wanted to experience for a long time and we were not disappointed with Viator...they made it possible to see all important aspects of Normandy in one day. Our tour guide was fantastic (Carlos). The memorial museum so comprehensive; Pointe du Hoc is unimaginable; the American cemetery is breathtaking; Omaha Beach is so vast and serene it's hard to imagine what took place there; and being from Canada we were thrilled to get a short visit to Juno Beach. The trip was truely an honour. Thank you Viator.

Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I felt the bus drove too fast through the city so you could not appreciate the points of interest or have time to take photos. Eiffel Tower drop-off was disorganized as people had 4 different kinds of tickets and the tour guide had to explain each one in different languarges (wasted time). Tickets get you to front of the line which is nice and then you are on your own to explore Eiffel as long as you want. The tower lights up around 5:30. The river cruise was also on your own time so no pressure and gave a nice leisurely trip down the Seine.

Montserrat Royal Basilica Half-Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The half day trip is sufficient. Less than a 1 hour drive. Very talented bus driver to get you up and down the curving roads of the mountain. Fernando was excellent guide and you have approx 2 hours to tour around yourself. Don't spend all your time in one spot as there is lots to see from all points of the mountain.

Brussels Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Absolutely fantastic. For the price - can't beat it. Our guide, Marie or Maria, was amazing and provided interesting info throughout. And she had a great sense of humor. She guided us to the important parts of town and then we were on our own to discover. Would highly recommend this trip for a "taste" of Brussels. By the way, do not eat the waffles in Amsterdam - wait until you get to Brussels for the REAL THING. It's worth the wait.
