Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

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

My Review
Excellent sights, but with a large multilingual group it felt as if we weren't quite getting value for money. The restaurant was a little cramped with the large group, too, although the food was very tasty. I was also uncomfortable that the guide seemed to tolerate people taking photographs in areas that were clearly marked 'no photography'.

Argentina Fiesta Gaucha Day Trip from Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a good opportunity to see something outside the capital in Argentina. With the traffic in Buenos Aires, the late pickup was understandable. However, the arrangements at the ranch were a little vague and could have been explained more clearly. The gaucho and dance shows were good and the food was fine, but the cart ride was disorganised and a bit of a waste of time without any explanation of what we were seeing.

Auckland Highlights combined with Wilderness Experience Eco-Tour

Auckland, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The four stars are all awarded for the Wilderness Experience Eco-Tour, which is definitely a must. The sights were well chosen, and the guide was fantastic. The Auckland Highlights section was good enough, but a bit too much time was spent looking at properties and talking about house prices.

Private Tour: Malacca Malaysia Day Trip from Singapore including Lunch

Singapore, Singapore

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

My Review
Given the amount of time on the road, there was understandably reduced time for sightseeing. A local guide in Malacca other than the driver who was excellent but had a very long day would have helped to make more use of this time. Lunch would have been more appreciated at a more authentically 'local' restaurant rather than at a big hotel lacking in atmosphere. Given the cost of a private tour, a group option would probably be better value for Viator to promote. I didn't know such a thing was possible, but in Singapore I found that it would have been.

Excellent arrangements! Though I was left wondering if the courier expected a tip. These things can be difficult to judge in an unfamiliar country. Can Viator help with recommendations?
