3-Day Kruger National Park Luxury Safari from Johannesburg

Johannesburg, South Africa

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Unfortunately Kruger was washed out and we didn't get the whole experience we had hoped for. We were placed at Drifters Lodge in lieu of Hoyo Hoyo Lodge. Drifters was okay but not what we had paid for as we had paid for luxury accommodation and we were disappointed. The staff were all fine and we had an okay time but really feel we missed out with the numbers of animals we saw. We had been to Pumba private reserve and saw so many animals but thought Kruger would be even better. We saw a few at Drifters but not in the numbers we had expected as per discussions with friends who had been to Kruger previously. We realise there wasn't a lot that could be done because of the floods but when you are on holiday that really isn't any consolation as we may never get back that way again.

Day Trip to Martha's Vineyard

Boston, Massachusetts

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

My Review

A good trip to Martha's Vineyard, ferry across was great. Tour of the island was very rushed with little time to look around at things during the tour. We did have time after we were dropped off. I found the driver to be quite unfriendly and perhaps because of lack of time, didn't/couldn't spend more time at points of interest. I particularly wanted to see the Gingerbread houses and we were rushed through that part of the tour. Maybe more time at each point of interest could solve the problem but I was disappointed really.

Fabulous day. Thank you Viator. Our tour guide Marina is an angel and went out of her way to give us information and help with things we were interested in. I truly wish all tour guides were "marinas". Would make life wonderful. A great day to remember. Thank you

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It was a good tour although the boat guides were hard to never stand and it seemed a chore Toby the Gil to have to bother speaking in English for us. We really couldn't understand her because he spoke very quickly as well. The islands were okay. Murano glass is interesting to watch being made and some pieces are amazing. Burano was a nice little island, old interesting and full of little shops selling lac and these fantastic plaster faces that were decorated with a material mâché like a harlequin hat and painted. Still sorry I didn't get one as they were very cheap here and soooo much better than the usual seen throughout Venice and Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Love Moulin Rouge but seating was very poor. We were perched in an aisle. We have done he show before and if I was to go again, would book myself and go for inner. My get better seating. Illuminations were lovely topped off with being at Eiffel Tower just on time to see the light display.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Cabaret Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Well where do I start, the river cruise was lovely and all I had hoped it would be. The Lido show was good and I am glad to have been but it is not as good as Moulin Rouge which is a really top professional show. The Eiffel Tower level 58 restaurant was a total disappointment. We were the only couple going on this tour, were given a ticket for entry and went to the restaurant ourselves. We were put at the back of the restaurant and the food was really second class. We received little or no attention and were literally pushed through like cafeteria patrons. Wouldn't go again. Staff were quite rude treated us like we were an inconvenience. We had previously dined (twice) at the Jules Verne restaurant and yes, you can tell the difference all around. Great food, great service
