Private Tour: London Walking Tour of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic tour. The private tour is the best way to go. Private tours lend themselves to a more personal approach and questions can always be asked and answered. The tour was informative and enjoyable. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. Five stars for sure.

Windsor Castle Tour from London with Lunch

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a relatively small group as tours go which was nice. Our guide provided interesting commentary both to and from the castle. The tour inside the castle relies on earphone commentary which was easy to operate. The castle itself is amazing. Lunch at Harrods was very nice, especially if you haven't explored Harrods already. Harrods is huge and requires a brochure in order to navigate the department store so allow plenty of time to shop. One nice thing about the tour was that the guide was very helpful by dropping people off as close as possible to their hotel or next destination.

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was particularly nice because we took it on the Sunday that the London Marathon was underway in the heart of London. This tour was strictly an overview type tour with limited time at Warwick, Stratford, and Oxford. Let me first say that our guide was fantastic. He was very low key, spoke clearly and concisely, and was especially knowledgeable. He was also very attentive to a large group's need--like bathroom stops, for example. The guide presented commentary during the bus ride both in and out of London as well as through the Cotswolds. Warwick Castle was very interesting both inside and out. There were three exhibits representing three different time periods. The tour was self-guided with the aid of earphones. Next we toured Shakespeare's home, Stratford-on-Avon, and spent a short amount of time seeing the town. It was interesting but the weakest part of this tour. Oxford was great to see and the guide presented interesting tidbits of information. This is a great tour if you want an overview or just want to get out of London for the day.

Unfortunately, this tour was cancelled due to the London Marathon. We were informed the day before and also received word from customer service that a refund is on the way. I have no complaints. My five star rating is for good communication by Viator.

Vintage Double Decker London Tour with Thames Cruise

London, United Kingdom

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour just has to be done whenever you go to a new city. It is an overview of the city from above which is nice because so much of your time is spent under the city taking the tube.

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Putting aside the rainy weather, this tour was not as good as it should have been given the locations. Our guide was very personable. However, she didn't move the group along quickly enough. It seemed more like a standing tour than a walking tour. And, although extremely knowledgeable, she got too detailed in her remarks. Given the cold and rainy weather, it would have been better to move faster and hit the main points. Several people from our group left half way through the tour before seeing The Forum.

Skip the Line Private Tour: Vatican Museums and St Peter's Art History Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was fantastic. We were met by Annalivia who was extremely knowledgeable, spoke clearly and concisely, and was very personable. She brought picture books to preview what was inside to aid in our comprehension. I liked that she allowed us to sit while she explained things and knew where to have us stand in order to get the best views. I would suggest that when confirming the tour to be clear on the exact starting time of the tour rather than the range of times listed on the general information sheet.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I enjoyed the tour. The guide was thorough but not exhaustive in her explanations. I have toured the Louvre without a guide and was very overwhelmed. Taking the tour is great because you skip the lines and are directed to the highlights of each section of the museum.
