Buenos Aires Dinner and Tango Show

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The show was great and the food (steak, wine) was pretty good too. As a solo traveler, I was looking to have dinner with other people. The environment at this restaurant was not set up to meet other people if you were not already traveling with them. It makes for a great "date night" type of dinner but if you are traveling alone just be prepared to be seated by yourself.

4-Day Tour to Iguassu Falls from Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

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

My Review

I was very disappointed by this tour. For starters, I paid for a "Superior Room" at what I thought was going to be a four-star hotel. Neither the hotel nor the room were four-star. The worse part was that I ended up in a room with three single beds. When I asked about it at the front desk, the gentleman told me that was "all they had available". The hotel was shabby, dull, not super-clean, and very plain vanilla. When I contacted the local agency about it, she offered me a free tango show. That was not what I was looking for. She didn't realize I had just arrived and wanted her to do something about my accommodations. When she finally did, it was 8PM the night before I was leaving. She (her name is Lucia from Say Hueque) was horrible. The bus ride was very long and it did not feel very clean. I saw the worker on the bus recycle the blankets and pillows immediately after they were already used by another passenger. The bathroom on the bus was atrocious. The saving grace to this trip was that the Falls were actually spectacular and the local tour guide who took us to both sides of the Falls (here name was Graciela) was fantastic.

My suggestion: fly to Iguassu, stay at a five-star hotel with excellent reviews, and save yourself the hassle.

Small-Group Cooking Lesson in Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This class was absolutely fantastic. We started off with a trip to the outdoor market and butcher then headed over to the home of our chef. He had a great apartment with a rooftop. There's no way we ever would have gotten that experience otherwise. Everyone in the class was fun/friendly. The chef and his assistants were helpful. The menu was comprehensive. We got to try a lot of traditional Italian dishes. Food was excellent. We had dessert and coffee at the chef's restaurant after. The class went on beyond the scheduled timeframe but well worth it. WE ALL HAD AN AMAZING TIME! Highly recommend!

Rome by Night Tour Including Dinner

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Tour was fair. The guide didn't speak very good English. But what was worse, was that he did not use a headset/microphone while he talked so it was hard to hear him in general unless you were standing next to him. He was not very good about keeping the group together either. I believe we were separated from one or two people during the tour and he did not seem very concerned.

The restaurant experience was OK. The service was not good but the food was delicious.

I would recommend a local provider of tours intead. Try "Dark Rome". I took another viator.com tour with them and liked it better.

Assisi and Orvieto Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

I'll start off by saying that I am religious and was really looking forward to going to Assisi because it is a holy place. That said, this tour was not that great. The biggest issue was that we were rushed. We did not have a lot of time to enjoy and soak in the beauty of Assisi. We also were not given enough time to pray, sit and marvel at how special of a place is for Catholics and fans of St Francis. There were literally no bathroom breaks. You had to break away from the tour in order to use the restroom and move quickly for fear of getting left behind.

The local guide was not good. She made inappropriate jokes. She barely waited for the group. She would stop to point out something unimportant instead of focusing on what the town/place is really known for and what people want to hear.

The food at the restaurant where we went was very average. They paid us pay for water which seemed a bit much. I don't think there was a lot of value to going to Oriveto. I would suggest the entire day be spend in Assisi instead. Folks will get a lot more out of that.

Did not end up using my pass or feeling a need to use the pass. Walked around the city instead. It was a much better experience.
