Private Departure Transfer: Hotel to Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK)

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Although there was a mix up with the pick up time from our hotel, the transfer was very good and comfortable and we arrived at the airport in time.

Suggest to allow plenty of time to clear immigration and security because the lines can be very long going through to the departure gates.

Great Wall of China Small Group Day Trip from Beijing

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My husband and I booked our Great Wall small group tour through the Viator website. We couldn't have been happier with the local tour operator and their guide, Vivian.
We booked the small group tour to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall because we didn't want to go on a big bus with lots of people and travel to a crowded part of the Great Wall. We were very lucky to be the only people on our tour, so we had a car, driver and Vivian our tour guide all to ourselves! We started out at 6:30am and we were at the wall before 8am. At the start of our walk, we were the only people on this stretch of the Great Wall. It was absolutely fantastic! My husband and I were in awe of the Great Wall.
We took the cable car up the hill and walked along the wall to the furthest accessible point, tower 24. In order to get to this point, you have to climb up the stairs, all 445 of them! The stairs are quite misleading as they start off quite even and not so steep, but the stairs increase in depth as you get higher and the last 20 stairs are a killer! I have to say though, what a buzz to reach the top.
Vivian was a superb guide. She catered to our every need and was extremely bubbly the entire day. She knew all the best points to take scenic and funny photos on the wall and was only too happy to take some photos for us along the way. We ate lunch at a new restaurant close to the wall. Vivian ordered the food for us and it was absolutely delicious!
Thank you Vivian for making our Great Wall and China experience all the more memorable. I would certainly recommend this tour as it was a fantastic experience.

Beijing Acrobatic Show and Peking Duck Banquet Night Tour

Beijing, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We enjoyed the acrobat show and were amazed at their skills. We were slightly disappointed with the dinner. I thought that the guide would have explained to our table how to eat Peking Duck. I have had this dish before, but some people at our table hadn't so we explained how to make the pancake rolls with Peking Duck. The restaurant was full of tourists, but the staff didn't speak any English so it was difficult to order drinks.

Private Custom Tour: Beijing in One Day

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We thoroughly enjoyed our day and our tour guide, Jason, was fantastic. Jason met us in our hotel and before starting out for the day, he asked us where we'd like to go and what we'd like to see in Beijing. Jason had so much knowledge and was informative, but never boring! We were recommended to purchase goods from the government shops as the quality is guaranteed. The prices were reasonable. Do be careful when shopping in other places as there are plenty of fakes, or "genuine copies" available in China. I would highly recommend this tour because it allows you the freedom to see what you want and spend as little or as much time as you want in any one place.

Thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see a part of Kakadu but has limited time. Our guide for the day, Luke, was fantastic! He was informative, very knowledgeable and took time to point out the not so obvious wildlife along the way.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

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

My Review

Our guide on this trip was terrible! She did not meet us at the designated place. We, along with many other people, were confused whether to board the boat as there was no clear signage, nor did the tour guide indicate she was our guide. The microphone on the boat did not work properly and the guide spoke so quickly (in multiple languages) we could not understand what she was saying! The guide didn't even care to turn to face us whilst she was talking. The islands visited however were nice, especially Burano!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We loved our day trekking through the villages of Cinque Terre! Our guide Sandra was fabulous! She was very accommodating to our group and nothing we asked was a problem. She had great local knowledge and was the perfect guide all day. The food at the restaurant was excellent! As mentioned in the information, a decent level of fitness is required for this trek. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and recommend this trip to anyone who likes a great trek.

3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We loved this tour! Our guide in Pompeii was great! Although our guide had done this tour numerous times, he was very entertaining and informative. We loved our days in Sorrento. The hotel was beautiful and the meals provided (Breakfast and Dinner) were fantastic! On the day we went to Capri, the Blue Grotto was open, however, the seas were very rough. As a result, we were forced to bob around (in our boat) in the water for 2 hours, which made most of the people in our boat extremely ill! The island of Capri is very beautiful and well worth visiting. Highly recommend the 3-Day trip if you can spare the time. The coastline of Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi is amazingly beautiful!

I've used Viator previously in Rome, Paris and London to book day trips. Our trip from Edinburgh to the Scottish Highlands was amazing! Our group was small, which made the trip more enjoyable. We had a fantastic driver/guide with great local knowledge and to top things off, we had superb weather! I'll definitely use Viator again and continue to recommend the company to my friends and family. Thank you!
