Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour was quite enjoyable! However we had a really bad start to it.. We were asked to be at the Nixon hotel for pick up as we were residing in Galata area.. After being at the pick up location for over 30 mins, We were told by the Nixon hotel staff that the local tour company had changed its plans (as it was labour day) and wanted us to walk back all the way to Galata bridge to join the bus.. We walked back, but the bus was not there as promised.. The organizers made very little effort to get in touch with us as well.. We managed to call the organizers and after several requests a vehicle was sent to pick us up.. We were quite exhausted trying to merely join the tour.. Definitely there is scope for the company to improve on planning and coordination.. We have taken many Viator tours in several countries.. But this was our worst experience.. However the tour and visits to the attractions were quite good. Overall a great way to discover Istanbul, provided they PICK YOU UP FOR THE TOUR!

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a good choice if your interested in island hopping in Greece, as covering 3 island in a day is quite efficient.. The ferry ride was quite relaxing as you could gaze through the ocean-aegean sea and pass many islands on your journey. We absolutely loved Hydra and thought it was an amazing place.. The landscape and views from the island just enchant you, wanting you to stay back and discover this little treasure of an island.. It was one of those places where you feel that time just stops and lets you breath in nature to unwind and relax.. Poros was quite a nice island as well. We would remember Poros for the amazing ice cream we had, whilst strolling around the streets.. However our last stop Egina, we thought was quite overrated as an island.. We had quite a few hours to spend (allowing time for those who wanted to visit the temple) and would have preferred if we had this time in Hydra. Lunch was good, but drinks/ coffee at lunch were on our account.. which i thought was a little cheap by the organizers. The entertainment towards evening kept us awake during our return journey. Overall it was good tour, we liked it!

Athens Bike Tour: City Highlights

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I highly recommend this tour! I have taken Viator bike tours in quite a number of European cities and could easily say that this was the best. Costas our guide was simply excellent! He was very knowledgable and ensured we had a great time during the tour.. The cycling routes were well planned out, with ample time for site seeing, taking pictures and regular breaks to wonder around.. His knowledge on history, culture, art and in general kept us interested throughout the tour.. We stopped over to sample some of the local desserts and quick snacks, from the most authentic places which they are made in the city.. We covered most of city attractions during this tour and was great value for money! The bikes were really comfortable as well. It is a great way to start your holiday in athens, cos by the time your done with it you would feel quite familiar with the city attractions and would know which ones you would want to return to at your leisure.. I would like to thank Costas for making this tour a memorable one!

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It wasn't well organized comparing all my previous viator experiences, because they messed up the timings of my booking... I booked the 5 pm slot and was there from 4.45, but was made to wait for the 5.30 slot as they had messed up the records... The local agent fat tire bikes who handle the tickets for viator was unfriendly, and simply washed there hands saying viator frequently gets records messed-up... btw Skip the line for tickets only, but crazy lines to get to the elevator!

The tour was nice, some great stops and quite informative as well. Bad experience with the bike though, as the fat tire bike turned in to a "flat tire". The guide was quite helpful. Great way to get a flavor of this beautiful city!
