Amsterdam Walking Tour

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Terry was excellent !! I think he's the only 1 guide who gives this tour. Ours was a group of 8 people. The tour started with a delay of 15 mins because an American mom-daughter were running a little late. Terry was patient enough to give them directionsthough it was simple as they were travelling via a car. Rest all were on time. He was also patient enough to let everyone click pics and also kept the group together in an impressive manner. He gave in-depth explanationeven about RLD about all places as well as answered all our questions of various kinds. The tour ended near Anne Fran House. At the end, he also gave other tips like where to stay, eat etc.
one advice to Viator : Next time, please don't mention 'Look out for Green T-shirt' around meeting point as it causes a lot of confusion to some people at least 3 people in my group were confused.

Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Giving 3 star only because the placesZaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam were good. The guide was very poor. His 'don't care' attitude was baffling. Usually, all viator selected tours are great. But in this one, even though there were 40 people inside a group, there were no radio devices or any other such mean. No-one could hear what the guide was saying at all, while out on the tour. Also, almost whole time he didn't care who is in the group, who's not. Upon visit to a small musuem in Volendam, he just sat outside and sent all people in. At Zaanse Schans, he just stayed outside of the windmill. Only the experts at the winmill and show factory told us something new and interesting about the place. Guide's helper a girl was quite helpful thoughshe was the only one keeping track of people etc..

It was a bit disappointing that the hiking4 miles trail got again closed due to rain. But, rest all was without any trouble.

Milan Half-Day Sightseeing Tour with da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'

Milan, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

To get to know small city of Milan, one should have this tour. It started from a very convenient location(near Castello Sforzesco fountain). Our English tour guide was Mirkhov. He was knowledgable and patient. He had very good info about opera(La Scala Theatre) also. While watching 'The Last Supper', he mentioned many details about it and answered many questions by visitors. After the tour ended, he also replied to general questions of people about where to go in night, restaurants etc.
One suggestion from my side would be that guide should accompany people inside the Duomo also(not sure if it is part of some other tour). In our case, guide narrated things about Duomo and its insides, but didn't accompany us inside. From the gate, he gave us 20 mins to pay visit insides and come back outside at a scheduled time.

My Review

Well, upon reaching the tour office, we saw the manager there and a customer fighting furiously over something(about which I've no details as it started before we reached there). I also saw 1 or 2 dissatisfied customers. But I think, the main reason behind this is that people don't read their itinerary properly and the main points clearly mentioned on it. Our English tour guide was 'Serena'. She was very knowledgeable and patient. Always tried to engage people in conversation. Encouraged people to ask questions. We lost a couple on the tour in the crowd(because they were slow as they had small kids) but found them after around 15 mins. And after that, till the very end of the tour, Serena took care of their whereabouts. :) Her description(s) of the Michael Angelo's painting(s) were very lively/emotional.
