Mamma Mia! On Broadway

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Booking in advance with Viator worked seamlessly. Better value seats than I would have got if i had queued for ever in NY. Fantastic seats at that, only 10 rows back at a perfect height, dead centre. I assume Viator must block book these as everyone seems to comment on how good the seats are. The show itself was good but not brilliant. It lacked the audience participation i had anticipated and would expect at home. Assume this to be partly to do with the international audience more than the cast not being up for it. There was certainly no dancing in the aisles!

New York Dinner Cruise with Buffet

New York City, New York

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great experience. Seeing the Manhatten skyline and the Statue of Liberty up close for the first time in the dark was a very atmospheric experience. I will never forget it. Weather was kind so being outside on deck was not uncomfortable, however most on our trip seemed intent on partying below deck with the resident DJ and multi skilled service staff who doubled up as entertainers. The whole night is very relaxed and informal, allbeit most peole dressed as if going out for the night to a party. The boat is really nice andthe buffet food of a OK quality. Parties ranged from 2 to 20 but everyome seemed to enjoy themselves. A very friendly trip. If you dont mind a steamy drinks bill and a bit of cheesy party music I would reccomened this to everyone. Be very careful to ensure that you confirm your attendance before you leave the UK and to check for any time changes. Once in the USA I found the company that runs the trip very helpful.

My Review

As with all my Viator bookings this all went according to plan. Madam Ts is a bit rough round the edges and i think some of the settings for the models could be more dramatic. Good fun however, i now have proof that i attended a meeting with the Obama's, fought Ali, was beaten up by the Incredible Hulk sang with James Brown and had my golf swing perfected by Arnold Palmer and all in 2 hours. Its a laugh. On a Monday in March it was not very busy either so it felt like a personal viewing.

My Review

The skip the line tickets are excellent for the ESB. The Viator voucher has you treated like royalty as soon as you hend it over. The views are fantastic. I would reccomend you try and avoid a windy day, if its windy on the street its a gale up there! Went on a Monday and it was not to busy.

My Review

We chose to use our voucher on a friday night. For all the benefits of virtual queuing there was still a lot of standing in line to do. We had a virtual queue of 1 hour and then it probably took us another hour to get to the top.Getting up did not feel as slick as the Empire State Building.The flexibility of when we could use the ticket was good and we changed our plans for when we used the voucher. I suspect the day time view surpasses the night time view, as the experience was not as good as the ESB during the day. Without doubt the best night time view is from a boat on the river for me.
