Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Amazing tour - best tour guide ever! (Maria Teresa from Dark Rome)
There is a nice restaurant on the second floor of the Colosseo Metro station (this is usually the meeting point) overlooking the Colosseum where you can wait for the tour while having lunch or breakfast!
Do not walk away with your radio as it costs the tour guide 70 Euros per person.

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I am sure the tour would have been great but we could not make it there! The St. Mark's square was flooded due to rain when we got there and there were thousands of people trying to navigate along these narrow platforms set up above the water. TAKE CARE to add enough time to try to get to your destination as it can take about an hour to get from one end of the square to the other during a flood like this.

Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Absolutely magical.. The Serenade and the accordian music made the Gondola ride. Be sure to know though that you will be riding in the same Gondola with other people. You do not get your own gondola with your significant other. (sometimes you might not get to sit side by side either so try speaking up if you want to)

Versailles Small-Group Tour from Paris with Audio Guide

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Versaille was amazing and our driver was the best! He was knowledgeable and friendly and was giving us wonderful information about the city as we drove over to Versaille. However, the guide does not guide you through the palace itself. You have to do a self guided tour with the automated headsets which are difficult to use as each different rooms are not clearly marked by the museum on what chapter to listen to. (not the fault of Viator.com) Try to avoid weekends as it was so packed that you could not even move an inch an hour in some rooms.

Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The River cruise was wonderful. The cruise boat plays music and it was magical. You must do the river cruise at night as the sights and the lights are so romantic. However the boat does get absolutely get packed so it is not very private. If you want private, I strongly recommend doing the river dinner cruise. Those boats strolled by and looked even more romantic. The Paris Illumination Tour, on the other hand, while informative, was not to be recommended as the bus does not stop anywhere. It just drives by the different sights while you listen to a pre recorded message. We would have liked to have had a bus tour that stops at different sights so you could take pictures. (Also the local tour vendor, sent us off on a bathroom hunt at the cruise stop - which is impossible to find - and then drove away without us. The second Cityrama bus who was beside our bus that drove away was kind enough to take us as it was the same tour but for a second, we were panicking) But none of this is Viator's fault. I would strongly recommend Viator for travelers as a trustworthy travel site!Thank you Viator!!
