Very disappointing trip. Bus was Double Decker and all seats were filled. This is understandable but tour director was conversing in two languages (English and Spanish) so time taken to converse to both groups was monotonous. No rest room stops for long journey to Bruges from Amsterdam or on return. Consequently many were using the toilet on board and as we were sitting near, the stench was overwhelming by the end of the trip. The walk to the meeting place was long due to Tour Director again using two languages, that is if you could hear him with 70 plus people trying to huddle close to him in the middle of a tourist attraction with so much surrounding noise and no microphone. It was also raining and many people had no wet gear so consequently we were very wet or you were in danger of being poked in the eye from people who did have umbrellas. Town of Bruges is gorgeous but time there was very limited. We have never complained about any Viator tours but we could not recommend this one.
Excellent guide always helpful including offering directions to get back to our respective hotels. Enjoyed the markets (Lunch was great)and Versailles Gardens however the Palace visit was chaotic. Our Guide warned us to expect big crowds but there does not seem to be any order on the volume of people jamming their way through the Palace. Note this is not fault of our tour rather the way it is done in Versailles. Far too hot on that day to be herded into a packed Palace. I would still recommend the Viator tour to get first hand history and see beyond the Palace.
Excellent tour. Guide promptly there and ready to start the tour. No lines to join. I have been to the Eiffel Tower before but never at this time and never to the third level. Highly recommend this trip for your bucket list.
