Siam Niramit Show in Bangkok with Hotel Transfer and Optional Dinner

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We only had the one night in Bangkok and wanted to do something special to finish our vacation, and this dinner and show looked good.

There was confusion when I reconfirmed the show the day prior. The provider did not want to pick me up at my hotel, which was inside the area some demonstrators were occupying. I had to threaten to cancel and demand my money back to get them to come for me, but they finally did. Sadly, the car (a near-new Toyota) overheated in the traffic. The driver was terrific in hailing a taxi, telling him where to take us and pre-paying him. He said he would be there to bring us back to the hotel afterward, but I doubted that.

The dinner featured very good food, but in a cafeteria-like setting. There were Western and Asian choices and all I tried were good. Drinks were not included, but they were very well priced.

The show was definitely worth all the trouble, though be aware that they take your cameras away from you, and are vigilant about anyone who tries to take a photo with his phone. They sell the audio track, but I didn't see a DVD of the performance for sale. It was as grand as the brochure suggests.

Finally, when we left the showroom, there was our driver to take us back to the hotel. It was a great night!

My Review

Nice pictures, but boat not at all like them. Sandwiched into long tables for dinner. Insufficient space to watch the entertainment. Food mediocre. Pickup/Dropoff was fine. Cruise was very nice.

Afternoon Tivoli Trip from Rome: Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very good tour of two highly interesting sties. Something for me as I'm into ruins. Something for her as she likes the gardens and waterfalls. Excellent information on Hadrian and his kin and the Borgia's -- the families, quirks, accomplishments and their 'little country places.' Bus was in great shape, driver was great. Guide was excellent. I had worried over meeting the tour in a Rome town square, but that was not an issue. A lot of walking, but they waited for the slow ones at the ruins, and we were at our own pace at the gardens. Well done Viator!

Dubai Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Review

This is a typical hopon-hopoff tour. Not much to say about it. They were on schedule. The commentary was informative but not exciting by any means. It did just what it was meant to do. The boat ride on the creek was a nice addition.
