Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We met at the main location for the Paris company doing the tour, right across from the Louvre, on the Rue Rivoli, next to the Joan of Arc statue. Our guide took us right inside, going all over the Louvre. We saw particularly the Venus DeMilo, and the Mona Lisa. Dress cool, as its really hot in there. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

Eiffel Tower Dinner and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We met underneath the tower, which was a feat in itself, as there was a taxi strike. We went right up to the first level of the tower, where we had dinner. It was good, the food and service were acceptable, being that there were about 40 of us in the group. We had to finish dinner, and make our way across the plaza, where the Seine boat cruise left from. We almost did not make it, as getting down took quite some time. The boat was clean, and not jammed, as the river has so many lines cruising up and down. It was difficult to understand the handheld devices, as to what we were seeing, but the scenery more than made up for it. We started out in the light/trilight, and ended up in the dark, so we could see the light of the tower twinkling, as well as the other buildings. Both were very nice.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We arrived at 0820, and were calling the shuttle at 9:30. Only one phone worked, so had to walk back and forth at least 500 feet every time, wondering where they were! They said they would be at a specific area at 10:30, outside where we were calling from. We were outside 20 mins prior, and then about 11:30, a van came barreling past. I tried to flag him down but waggled a finger at me. Then our friends showed up at 12:30. They had to bribe a fellow to take them!!! Two more vans went by until our name was finally on the list. We finally got to our hotel in the mid afternoon, about 1:30. Not a good transfer.

Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We were picked up at our hotel on 7 June, and taken to the bus depot near Victoria Station. Boarded a different bus. The traffic was heavy but finally got to Kensington Palace first, walking thru the various exhibits there. Hampton Court was a good hour outside London, very picturesque. Was a small group, actually good. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and pleasant. A good tour, not the typical city tour, got to see neighborhoods outside the central city area.

Note from Viator
The itinerary for this tour has changed and no longer visits Kensington Palace.

The London Showboat Dinner Cruise on the Thames River

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We took a taxi to the Westminster Pier opposite the Eye, and boarded the river cruise ship. Ship personnel were very nice. Food was just okay. We left at 7, and returned at almost 11:30, going upriver a bit, but downriver all the way to the flood barriers. City was very pretty at night, very very enjoyable. Parliament was impressive! Was a woman singing various song selections, who was quite talented. All in all, a good tour.

London in One Day Sightseeing Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a full day of touring, starting at 7, and going until the late afternoon. Were picked up at our hotel, going to the central meeting point for our tour. We saw the band come out of their area, and walked near them to the changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, so saw more than just the "changing". That was neat! We toured St Pauls, even the catacombs, saw Nelsons Tomb. We then went to Trafalgar Square, and had lunch on our own at an Italian restaurant. We then went to the Tower, and I walked up to the top of the tower. Next, we then took a river boat ride back to the Westminster Pier. Was a very informative tour, very tiring, but well worth the money.

London Airport Private Arrival Transfer

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our driver was waiting when we came out of Customs. Our friends flight from Philly was a bit early, so their driver was a few minutes late, and both vehicles arrived at our hotel at precisely the same time. We were treated courteously, driver was quite capable, and was a nice way to get to the hotel after a long flight. Will do it this way again, no question. Other option was to take the train from the airport to Pad Station, then haul bags to the taxi location and drive to the hotel, for about the same price. No brainer, ours was the way to go!

The Murano part was ok, but did not allow for any glass purchases at the factory we went to. Burano was spot on, were directed right to the linen store that had great prices. Torcello was interesting.
