Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour was amazing!! We did the evening tour and in all the times I've been to the Louvre this is the closest I've ever gotten to all the famous works! It was beyond worth the price as we felt we had the whole museum to ourselves!! The museum security guards didn't seem to mind anyone taking pictures at all as there were so few people in the museum! Our guide had such passion and love for what she was teaching us that my boyfriend who isn't even into art didn't want the tour to end! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone! Worth every penny!

Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I booked this as a surprise date night for my boyfriend's birthday! The dinner on the cruise was surprisingly amazing! Every penny spent on this excursion was made worth it when we skipped the 3+ hour Eiffel Tower line and were allowed to go up even though due to the elevator malfunctions we had been warned we may not even be able to go to the Eiffel Tower! It was priceless as he'd never been to Europe! Then we headed to the Moulin Rouge which was the one downfall of the whole evening. We were smooshed with 8 other people around a table which at most should have held 5 in the far upper corner with a wall in front of us with literally ZERO visibility! After being told there were no other seats we finally had a waiter find two seats on the stairs with a view of a quarter of the stage. Another waiter saw us and moved us to the very top balcony and pulled up two stools in front of the sound booth so we didn't get a table or any champagne but at least we could see more of the stage. We were happy when the show was over. Overall the evening was amazing and we couldn't have done all of these things for the price on our own! The coordination of the evening was outstanding as was the tour operator! They even dropped us off right around the corner from our hotel which was amazing at 1:30 in the morning! A night to remember!

Private Tour: Venice Gondola Ride with Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

If I could give this tour 0 stars I would! I'm in the travel industry and I booked 4 tours with Viatur which were OUTSTANDING, however this tour was not! I had taken a Gondola Ride before but my family never had so I gulped hard and paid the insane price for this tour thinking it would be a once in a lifetime experience for them and the Serenade would make the price a little less painful! Boy was I wrong! We were shuffled into a Gondola after having to wait for a pushy tour group of about 60 people to get on theirs well after our appointment time. The canal was over-packed which isn't their fault, however our Gondolier spend the WHOLE time talking to the Gondolier next to us and never Serenaded us! He didn't even hum! If we had wanted the "shared" tour without a serenade I would have paid for that tour (much less)! I'm not one to complain at all, however be aware when booking this that you may have better luck finding your own gondola down a back canal (which I had thought of doing but didn't want to risk having a bad experience) instead of paying this insane amount for a sub-par experience! Viator needs to be aware of this for the price they charge...maybe switch companies they work with?

This tour was amazing!! It was small and paying the extra to see Casanova's cells was incredible! My favorite part of the tour was going above the "ceiling" and then standing below in the huge hall knowing we had just been above it! As with our other Viator Museum Tours our guide was amazing and had such passion for what she was teaching us! No question was unanswered and once again my boyfriend and father who have little museum/history interest were completely wrapped up in both! Thank you Viator!

My Review

When we still had to wait in the line with hundreds of people with half our group having headphone problems I was wondering if I had made a mistake purchasing the Skip the Line option! Our guide however was AMAZING!! I quirky older man who's knowledge was endless! He had us all so enthralled with his stories and approachability that none of us wanted the tour to be over! Even though it was a slightly large group you felt like the only ones! He made the artwork come alive! Thank you Viator!

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

AMAZING!! Worth every penny for the "skip the line" and "private" part!! Our guide was so knowledgeable and adapted our pace for my 80 year old dad. Even though it was very busy we never felt rushed and we were able to get close to all the artwork. Her knowledge of the place was amazing and she answered every question and pointed out things she knew we would enjoy due to things we asked. The Sistine Chapel was amazing as was St Peter's which were the two things that we wanted to see badly, however the museum surprised us all! Very very intriguing! Thank you Viator!
