Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a new tour by Viator and the subcontracted company "Best of Switzerland Tours." The guide Peter H. was superb! One of the best I've had on a Viator tour. Very knowledgeable, professional and kept the group on track. The tour involves getting on/off trains where timing is everything. Peter kept us on track yet not too rushed. The cog-wheel train to the top of Jungfrau and the scenery --maginifcant. We saw the towns of Lucerne, Interlacken and Grindelwald. Not enough time in any but, the destination is Jungfrau and the trains only depart at certain times. I would strongly suggest bringing food and juice/water along on the trip because the tour does not stop for lunch/dinner breaks. We had brought lunch but not snacks for dinner. Wish we had--we were hungry by the time the tour was over. If you have limited time in Switzerland, this tour is a must. It starts from Zurich, but we came from Basel by train back-forth to get onto the tour. A LONG day but worth it! Highly recommended. Again, the tour guide Peter H. was excellent and the subcontracted tour company was excellent.

My Review

The tour was excellent and the guide was knowledgeable. We had a small group (6) on this tour and the guide took the time to personalize the experience as we viewed the various sites. I would recommend this tour especially to those that want a more indepth experience and/or have or had family members that were veterans.

Small-Group Deluxe Grand Canyon and Sedona Day Trip

Phoenix, Arizona

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Kirk R. of Detours was great! Gave good facts about the history and surroundings. Very pleasant and helpful..always professional. If you have limited time to see Grand Canyon--this is the trip to do! Was offered an add-on of a helicoptor tour of North and South Rim of Canyon. What an incredible experience. Sedona Red Rocks and brief stop at Navaho trading post (30 mins) was excellent. Included lunch was healthy, very ample. Had a picnic overlooking the Canyon. Beautiful. Would recommend this trip to those with limited time. Excellent.

Monaco and Eze Small Group Day Trip from Cannes

Cannes, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

They did an excellent job. The guide, Marie was excellent. She was knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting historical/cultural facts. Eze is beautiful small 10th c. village. The factory tour of perfume focuses more on methods used many years ago (i.e., not a true tour of a factory) and more time in the sales room. Perfume is quality. Time spent in and around Monaco-the castle, Oceanography museum and surrounding area was well spent. We stopped briefly -1 hour- in Monte Carlo...that was enough to get a sense of the opulence! The scenery and drive from Nice to Monaco and back was beautiful. Went in the low season-December-so crowds were much less. Would recommend for those that want to do a day trip to Monaco. Marie as our guide was superb!

My Review

Excellent tour and well worth the time spent. The tour guide was knowleddgeable and provided us sufficient time at each stop along the way. The best was the 30-40 mins boat trip on Lake Ashi...at 4:30 pm in the afternoon in November, it was dusk and ethereral in atmosphere. Superb. Would do again!

Did this tour in the pouring rain in November but the guide was excellent and made the best of the situation. Would recommend to those who want to get a good overview and then later go back and explore more on their own...which is what I did.

The Great Tour of Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Would recommend this as an initial overview to the city and then go back and see sights more in depth. Tour guide was pleasant but a bit 'scatter-brained"! :-) Trip back on Lake Zurich quite nice. Pack your own lunch in advance and weather permitting enjoy by the shores of Lake Zurich or on the boat trip back.

Prague Walking Tour Following in Mozart's Footsteps

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
If you are all musically inclined and enjoy a walking tour, seeing where Mozart lived and what he did on his 4 separate trips to Prague between 1789 and 1791 was excellent. The music museum, located a short walk once you cross the Charles Bridge was superb!
