Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Can not recommend more highly!!!!Tour guide again was excellent and very knowledgeable. For the duration of the tour through Palatine Hill and through the Forum she delighted us with facts about Ancient Roman society .
What a treat to be able to walk past the seemingly hundreds of people queued up at the entrance of the Colosseum to be able to enter by private gate and have access to all of the tiers, gave me goosebumps!!

Naples Shore Excursion: Pompeii and Sorrento Day Trip

Naples, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was also a great tour (the Pompeii side of it) the guide again was fantastic. the only issue was the waiting around, some of the whispers were not working correctly and we had to wait around for this to be rectified. all of them should be checked prior to going out to be given to patrons. also had to wait quite a while for the tickets to be purchased for our group. When we get on the bus in Naples our tour guide on the bus should call ahead to the tour guide in Pompeii with how many people turned up for the tour and therefore how many tickets should be purchased in advance.
The issues with the whispers and waiting for our tickets to be purchased took well over 40 minutes to sort out which then took time off of the Sorrento part of the trip which was pretty much a waste of time.
Pompeii was fantastic though 5 stars for that part

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Explore Dubrovnik by Cable Car

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a beautiful City, again very easy to find the tour operator. Lovely young lady who was very knowledgeable and obviously very proud of her city. She spoke English very well.
Views from the cable car excellent
Tour of the old city great also
Sadly it rained the day we had our tour (near the end), some of the guests left when it started to rain, but others had umbrellas so our guide soldiered on to the end and made sure that everyone was happy with the service.

Dinner and Show at the Paris Moulin Rouge with Transport

Paris, France

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

My Review

Transport was excellent dropped us off right at our hotel.
Dinner at Moulin Rouge was ordinary to say the least.
The waiters basically threw your food down at you, sadly I was sitting at the end of a table near the main walk way and was hit but everyone going by.
For the money they charged they need to have a few less patrons, talk about being squashed in like sardines.
Highly over-rated

Skip the Line: Versailles Half-Day Tour

Versailles, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Another great tour offered by Viator. Tour Guide again very knowledgeable, very easy to find the tour office (which was a bonus) Again had to wait a little while for tickets to the Palace to be purchased (about 10 to 15 minutes) While we were viewing the gardens someone should have been off getting our tickets from the group gate. Our guide had a list of names so knew who was supposed to be with us so the tickets should have been purchased from the list and if people did not turn it is their issue. As it was we had to still wait for late comers anyway. (about 10 to 15 minutes)
I feel if I have purchased my tickets in advance they should be pre-purchased prior to us going on the tour, however it was an excellent tour

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Be prepared!! There was a protest in Paris on the day we were to get on the hop on bus. We had planned our trip to start next to the Eiffel Tower. This stop was closed off and we were unable to find the alternate pick up/drop off point. Viator you need to supply maps with where you can "hop on, hop off", maybe ask where your initial route will be and at least send you the map for that route
When we finally were able to get onto the bus it was excellent, and being to change over to different routes for the two days was really good
