Montserrat Royal Basilica Half-Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide Mark was very knowledgeble and spoke good English. He explained everything thoroughly and the trip/tour was a delight. We loved everything about it. We got tons of awesome pics (don't know how to send them to you though) and great souveniors. We were able to hear the boys choir sing and what a treat that was. The amount of visitors that are allowed into the church for the choir's performance of two songs was overwhelming. We were like sardines in a can. You must get into the church by about 12:15 for a 1:00 performance or you will be standing and/or squished against alot of other people. It was a wonderful visit to a special place and our guide made it a super trip. Thank you

Tapas Evening Walking Tour of Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was very positive and informative and inspite of the rain we had to walk in (can't ever guarantee the weather) she really gave us a lot of information about what we were walking past and about the different kind of tapas and their origins. She even took us to the LaBouqueria which was so amazing and fun. We had tapas and drinks at our meeting place and met with everyone and then started walking to our second location. It was during this second stop that an unfortunate situation occurred. One of our young ladies walked away from her purse at the table we were at (and there were a couple others still at the table who did not get up) and during that short time someone was able to sneak away with her purse without anyone seeing it. She had everything in it and was devastated of course. They went to the police station and we finished our second stop all feeling kind of bummed out and sad and we all learned a very valuable lesson that night too. We continued on without them to the third and final stop and started receiving our tapas and drinks. Our guide really had to leave and go be with the young couple at the police station (it was the right thing to do) and we all finished up and went our separate ways. Even with the rain and this unfortunate incident, the tour and tapas and information received was excellent and we would highly recommend this tour to all who go to Barcelona. It is a wonderful city, just be very careful!! Thank you, Laura V.

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Small-Group Walking Day Trip

Cadiz, Spain

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

My Review

The city of Seville is very beautiful and we were glad we went there, but this tour did not turn out as it was supposed to. First of all, the second couple never showed up, so we left 30 minutes late. Not too big a problem, it seemed as if we had lots of time to get there and see the city and get back to our ship before heading out. Our driver, Maurizio, was a very special fellow and we enjoyed his company to and from Seville. However, when we got to Seville, we found out that we would be accompanyed by a young man who was doing a favor for the person who was supposed to do the tour and this young man was not even a real tour guide so he informed us he could not really tell us about things inside of the buildings. He was a very nice person and we enjoyed sharing and talking with him, but his appearance was a little disheveled and he had body odor and bad breath. He had been in Spain for five years, so did know quite a bit about Seville, but the tour left us feeling like we had been cheated from really learning and seeing more of Seville. Like I said, he was a very nice person, but my husband and I feel this situation was very unprofessional especially considering the cost of the tour. Please be more careful in the future in making sure the people who represent you don't do this kind of thing again. If given the chance in Cadiz to know what was going to occur, we would have cancelled this tour and just stayed in Cadiz which was a beautiful city. I have tried to be honest and not too critical as we understand these things can happen, but we wanted you to be aware. Thank you, Laura V.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our tour of the Vatican was fantastic despite the extreme heat wave in Rome. Our guide Emanuella was very knowledgable and informative in every aspect of history and art. We learned so much and were in awe of actually seeing things we had only heard or read about. Our wait time was very short despite huge crowds and we highly recommend this tour with Viator. Thank you and keep up the good work. L and M from Florida

Rome by Night Tour Including Dinner

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour itself was quite good. However, our poor tour guide had to translate in four languages which was very frustrating for her and all of us. Two languages should be the limit on any given tour. The actual drive around Rome was beautiful at night and the dinner in Trastevere was delicious!
