Paris Paradis Latin Dinner and Show

My Review

My husband and I were seated at a very nice table and the food was good. We chose the least expensive meal and were very satisfied. The food was nothing exceptional, but we weren't expecting it to be. The staff was very attentive and served us promptly. The show was wonderful! The dancing was simply beautiful and the costumes were beautiful as well. The acrobatic acts added a nice touch. The MC was quite entertaining and engaged the audience. We were surprised to see a few women dancers with bare breasts. Their costumes were beautiful and my husband and I did not find it to be offensive. It was all very tasteful and added to the beauty of the dancing. It was truly a wonderful French experience!. We would definitely go again if we ever got to Paris.

My Review

Paul, our guide was a lot of fun. He got us right in without any wait up to the second level. He pointed out a lot of sights and gave us a good bit of history. We did have to wait for about 15 minutes to get to the very top which we did not mind. The tour told us we would have to wait for that. It was definitely worth the wait to get to the top. The views were amazing! Not to be missed.

My Review

The small group tour was fantastic. There were 10 people in our group. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the art works and also was able to get us to the highlights very quickly. We spent about three and a half hours seeing the prime art works as well as many other artists works that we were hoping to see. We never could have done and seen as much as we did without the help of our experienced guide. Thank for a great tour!

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We used the hop on hop off bus to get around to many of the sights on our first day. It is a good way to get introduced to the city and the main sights. You are given a great map and all of the 4 different routes intersect at one point so you can switch routes if needed. There was a stop fairly close to our hotel which made it very convenient. It was sometimes a little difficult to find a stop if you walked on your own and did not get back on at the same place you got off. The audio was provided in many languages so you could listen to the narration of the area if you wanted to do so. if this is your first time in Paris it is a great tool.

We enjoyed being able to see so many sights. If you are going to be in London for just one day this is an excellent tour. Our tourguide was very knowledgable and friendly.

My Review
We arrived at Heathrow and found that our driver did not show up. I had to call Viatior and was told that someone forgot to put us into their computer for pick-up that day. One hour later still no ride. After second call $6.00and two hours later, We finally got picked up. Our driver was apologetic, courteous and the ride was very good. It is probably a good idea to call day before to double check and make sure you are on their list. We have used Viator for many of our other tours and were very satisfied. This was a huge dissappointment!

Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade with Dinner

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The gondola ride was great! We had a beautiful evening with a full moon to compliment the beautiful music provided by the singer and accordion player. It was great to have not only beautiful scenery, but have nice music for the entire ride. The food at the restaurant was also quite good. Our only criticism was that the directions to the restaurant were very difficult to follow. Many people on our tour took over an hour to find it. We were with people who had found it during the day. If we had not been with them, we would have also had difficulty. It really was an easy walk, but the directions were poor.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We really enjoyed the tour, but felt very rushed at all three sites. We would have liked another 15 to 20 minutes at each site. We especially loved Murano and Burano. Our favorite was Burano. Burano is a quaint little town, with all its many colored houses and little shops, was a real treat The lace was beautiful! We would have liked a little more time to browse the many shops. The long walk to and from the town of Torcello from the boat used up most of our time for sightseeing. We were unable to see much there. It might be better to just visit Murano and Burano and allow more time at both sites, if time is an issue with your company.
