Rome Departure Shuttle Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The shuttle would not pick us up at the hotel - instead at a meeting place some 100 200 metres away where we had to drag our suitcases therough the rough cobblestones. The driver was absolutely rude, the shuttle bus was old and had tgo stop once so nthat the door could be closed in case it opened during transit! The hotel's limo, we found out later, would have picked us up at the hotel for Euro60. As it is, we paid about Euro 45 for 2 of us. The driver was also rude to another couple of passengers!

Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Probably one of the best tours we have ever taken. The catacombs and crypt (where 3,700 human skeletons were used to decorate some of the monastery rooms) and the current church which was built over another church and again over a 3rd church was a real eye opener! Very enjoyable, the tour guide, an Argentinian lady was excellent - very good English and knowledge of all the places of interest - in fine detail, with histories too!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Top class - limo driver was in a suit, picked up in a very comfortable mid size Mercedes Benz, very informative (if asked). Took us right to the hotel door 15 meteres from the Trevi Fountain. Very good price, especially for 2 people, weher you would pay for 2 on a bus. Does not cost much more to have a limo!

Excellent bus - unfortunately it rained, so we came down to the bottom level, but the rain kept on rushing down the staircase like a small torrent. Would have been much better on a sunny day!

Lisbon Small-Group Gourmet Portuguese Food and Wine Tour

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of the highlights of our tour. Supposed to take 3 hours but took 4! Got to learn a lot about Portuguese food and wine, also walked through some real trendy sections, where we later (after the tour) went out to dinner with another couple we met on the same tour. The guide was excellent, knowledgeable with good English.

Lisbon Super Saver: Lisbon Hop-On Hop-Off Tour with Four Routes including Tram

Lisbon, Portugal

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

My Review

Not bad - probably the poorest hop on hop off we've been on. Only the sights of the old port area was worth it - bus is too infrequent, with 30 minute intervals during peak season. Unfortunately, some of the 30 minutes was nearly 45 minutes!

Shuttle was okay, however, trhe French driver was "typically French" and quite condescending, even though he did not know who we were. You get all sorts in this world!

Skip the Line: Versailles Palace and Gardens Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The WORST tour guide ever! Claimed he was an academic, refined in the the arts (opera lover) and ONLY did this tour (11 or aso in the group) as a once off - that he only ever did "private tours" with a few people! Not sure why he took this group then? He DID NOT KNOW how to handle a group of 11, talked literally to himself and the very few in the front, nobody could hear him mumble, did not know how to really stop and address everyone, unlike the guide on our Eiffel Tower tour (who had 23 of us)! Absolutely rude because he asked for tips at the end (height of rudeness)and when we did not want to tip him (because he was SO LOUSY), he then told us "not to come back to France"! Viator, be ashamed - because this guy should NOT be a tour guide! He definitely spoiled our Versailles tour! The palace and gorunds though, were superb, very grand.

My Review

Now - the young Canadian tour guide we had was the VERY BEST! He knew everything beyond what was needed to know about the Eiffel Tower, talked about Paris, where to go, eateries, etc. He had 23 of us on his tour, but addressed everyone, was loud and clear, we wished we had him on our Versailles tour where we had a rotten guide. VERY GOOD!

Paris Pass

My Review

Oevrpriced! We paid for a 4 day pass but because it covered Sat - Tues, found out that most museums/galleries are closed Mon and Tuesdays! It did cover all trains, hop on hop off bus (VERY GOOD) BUT if you caught the bus, it was only $30/day each, the train is so cheap 1-2 Euros to get anywhere, and even if you went to the Louvre or cruise on the Seine, they were only Euro 11 each! You need to work out if you would actually use its value, but we paid over Euro300 for 2 of us and got noweher near its value because unless you are a fanatic, you won't visit that many fee paying places! Next time, we'll do our research first!
