Sydney Departure Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our pick-up was on-time, even though the driver didn't come to the lobby of our hotel to tell us he was there (a language barrier). Perhaps, for the distance of Sydney Airport from the city hotels and the fact that there was 3 of us, we probably could have dome better on the costs by using a maxi-taxi.

Small-Group Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney with River Cruise

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A great day was had by us all! The small group was more personal and our Guide really made us all interactive. The weather cooperated nicely too. Must do the optional activities while in the Blue Mountains, even if its $35 more extra. I think we should have had a bit longer for our solo time during lunch; perhaps we should have caught the ferry on the Parramatta River somewhere closer to the city...

Sydney Opera House Guided Walking Tour

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A fabulous way to learn about the story behind the iconic Sydney Opera House! I took 2 American friends (I am from Melbourne), and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our Guide was a senior citizen who I think volunteers his time and proudly shares his love for the Arts (and the S.O.H). Everything was fascinating... it is one heck of a beautiful House !!!

Sydney Tower Restaurant Buffet

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

YES - a real nice feast atop a real nice view, even though it was a bit of a cloudy evening. I am from Melbourne, taking out friends from the U.S. and have been on this activity before (lunch that first time; this dinner was better). I used Viator this time ... I think your directions could be a bit clearer. It made me think I was getting lost, but my own directions in my mind was more helpful!

Athens Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A Hop-on/Hop-off bus came in very handy during our short stay in Athens. We only bought the short Red Route which gave us a sensible orientation of the centre of Athens. The running commentary was also helpful. The bus negotiated the busy traffic of Athens, and managed to stay close to the timetable.

Athens Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

As there was 3 of us travelling together to Athens, this represented good value for money! Our driver was there to meet us, and his taxi was all to ourselves!! Our flight got in fairly late in the evening, and our transfer to our hotel was seamless + a bonus commentary from our friendly driver.

Milan Half-Day Sightseeing Tour with da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'

One cannot miss the Scala, the Duomo, and of course the Last Supper... the fashion stakes come only second to these!

Milan City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Milan, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I am a fan of Hop-on/Hop-off buses everywhere ... my problem is I don't always enjoy its full benefit due to time constraints. I suggest to allow a full day for this activity alone. Milan was very hot on this day, and the buses were running behind schedule.

Geneva City Tour and Boat Cruise

Geneva, Switzerland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The highlights of Geneva are briefly but concisely captured here! I'm sorry I only had a day in this city, but this Tour gave me a big insight into what most of us have in mind. The only difference is it was 30+ deg Celsius during my visit, although the snow-capped Swiss Alps are very much visible from afar !!!

Montenegro Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A definite MUST-DO ! Our driver and guide were a perfect team, and delivered an unforgettable experience; even the "scary" bends (exceptionally handled by Dinko) were integral part of the whole package. For anyone visiting Dubrovnik, make time for this Tour. My highlight was the view of Kotor atop the mountain, after 25 hairpin bends!!!

A totally new and exhilarating experience for me (at 55 years of age!). The Guides were very good Segway tutors and saw Rome from a different angle. It sure beats walking !!!

Illuminated Rome Night Tour with Aperitivo

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A great activity. The aperitivo allowed for us to mingle and be social first. Plenty of walking, so make sure one is aware of this, followed by a bus ride around the town that evening. Seeing the Basilica and the Vatican surrounds all lit up is awesome! I think (for extra dollars, of course), I would have liked to have stood in one part of the inside of the Coliseum that night ... I'm certain that would have been magical !!!

Renaissance Florence Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I think the operators had a disorganised day on this occasion ... the Guide was very late (he said it wasn't his fault!), then as much as he was passionate about his Art History (which I appreciate also) -- this activity would really suit an Art History student more than us mere tourists who were keen to be shown the other sights that make up Florence !

We sure did cover a big slice of Tuscany on this one-day trip. The Leaning Tower of Pisa was a fitting finale. Great commentaries from the Guide.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A good introduction to what Murano and Burano are about, but a "rushed" trip. Maybe the Torcello bit could be slashed from this activity, so that there's more time could be had for Murano and Burano.

Venice, Italy

My Rating

My Review

Venice in an afternoon! Only hitch was we didn't get in for the Skip-the-Line entry to the Basilica di San Marco (we don't know why?); Dark Rome was supposed to inform Viator of this and we were promised a refund for this portion of the Tour - still awaiting for this.

Raffles Hotel Singapore Half-Day Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

After HaLong Bay, here we got what a toruguide should be ... cleanly dressed, offering great facts on the things around us that matters ! The Tiffin was fabulous, altho I missed the harp-player (I was doing a Tiffin also 2yrs ago). Thank you.

Halong Bay Small Group Adventure Tour including Cruise from Hanoi

Hanoi, Vietnam

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

HaLong Bay itself was a real treat, even if the day was misty and we got enveloped in fog. Our tourguide was a disappointment - obviously not a professional, offering very little commentaries during the 3hr drive THEN slept for 2hrs on the way home ! She also was not cleanly dressed (looked like she was the tourist), altho she did smile to us a lot. More importantly, when we got trapped in the fog for 30min, we were practically lost at sea ... it appeared the boat did not carry a compass (at the very least). We missed a barge or two by metres only. It was myself and another tourist, who was able to activate his Blackberry GPS apps showing our location to be heading straight North, when I said my little knowledge tells me we should be turning West !!! Nothing wrong with the UNESCO attraction we went to see; perhaps Viator should do a serious enquiry on this incident, and re-train our tourguide.

All aspects very good! Maybe more time at the market would be better, rather than a rushed experience. KL looked superb at night from the tower, with great food to go with the view!
