Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor and Punchbowl Sightseeing Tour

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Would thoroughly recommend this tour when visiting Waikiki, Oahu. We were picked up from our hotel on time and enjoyed a relaxing ride to Pearl Harbor. The tour is very much on the clock due to the number of people so you have to be wary of the time so as to not miss the boat ride to the Memorial. The Memorial experience was very moving as was the drive through the Punchbowl cemetry.
The town tour back to our hotel was excellent with the driver making sure we were aware of the history of Hawaii. Well advised to book this tour in advance to avoid disappointment.

Jail and Sail: Alcatraz Tour and Sunset Bay Cruise

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour if first time visitors to San Francisco. Book well in advance as tours to Alcatraz are impossible to get if not booked.
Ferry ride to Alcatraz was very smooth and enjoyable and the prison island well worth visiting. No rushing about with your own time to see what you want ant return when you want.
The evening cruise was also very good taking in the Golden Gate and Bay bridges. Very nice small buffet snack was presented on their maiden voyage.
Get to both tours early as the queues get very long although there is plenty of room on both vessels.
Recommended.

Yosemite National Park Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Can highly recommend this tour when visiting San Francisco.
Don't be put off by the 2-3 hour drive each way as the Yosemite National Park is a sight to behold. Plenty of free time to do your own thing with a free shuttle bus running through the park every 8 minutes.
Our host Sue was very pleasant and our driver Angel very experienced in driving in busy traffic.
A must do, amazing place to visit.

New York City Airport Luxury Departure Transfer

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Arrived in New York at JFK airport expecting to ride in an SUV to our hotel. Pleasantly surprised when we were taken to a stretch limo.
Very comfortable ride and although the driver did not extend a warm welcome we found this was the 'norm'
with most drivers in the places we visited.
Great not having to worry about finding shuttle buses to bet to the hotel.

Las Vegas Airport Roundtrip Transfer

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

After arriving at Las Vegas it was easy to find the shuttle bus for our ride to our hotel. Very friendly driver whomade us feel very welcome.
Different story for the return journey. After confirming our return transfer the day before, we expected the same bus for the trip back to the airport. When the bus was 20 minutes late, we rang the company only to be told that we awould be collected in a limo not bus and the driver would arrive in 10 minutes. Another 30 minutes later the driver finally arrived with the story that he had been earlier and as we were not outside the hotel he left. We wer outside waiting but expecting a bus not limo.
He could not explain why he did not park up like other drivers and try to find us. I believe our return transfer was overlooked.
Would probably have a private transfer if we returned next time.

NYC Discount Card: Eat and Play

New York City, New York

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

My Review

Unfortunately we would not recommend this card. The reason being the discounts being offered at restaurants and cafes are mainly based on the west side of New York whereas the majority of hotels are based on the east side. To be able to use the card if based on the east side would have involved considerable expense in travelling which would have negated the discount.
Best that you check where the discounts are in relation to your accommodation before purchasing the card.
Also, the locations where the card can be collected vary and are not open after 5pm.

Note from Viator
Thank you for your feedback! We've heard back from the tour operator concerning your review, and wanted to post their reply:

We're sorry to hear this customer's comments. There are four card pickup locations and they close at 5pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm respectively. Most of our restaurants are in the heart of midtown, being west of 3rd and east of 9th which is also where most hotels are located. It's a very large city and we try and provide options in most key areas but try and concentrate around midtown.

We hope this information helps you, and future travelers, in making the best decisions for what tours will work for you. Thank you again for your review, and we do hope you had a wonderful time on your holiday.

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Would highly recommend the 'skip the line' ticket for any tour to the Eiffel Tower as the queues to purchase tickets can have you waiting up to 2 hours.
The 'skip ths line' ticket meant that after meating with our guide, we were able to bypass all of the queues and proceed directly through the gates to the elevators to go up the tower.
The little extra cost is well worth the time saved.

Skip the Line: Versailles Palace and Gardens Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Recommend this to anyone that has limited time to see the main attractions in Paris. We have used the 'skip the line' tickets on many occassions and would highly recommend these on any tour occassion.
All of the main attractions in Paris have queues that could have you standing in a line formup to 2 hours just to purchase the ticket.
Having a guide helping you to avoid the queues is well worth the little extra cost of the ticket.

My Review

Would highly recommend.
The driver was waiting in the arrivals hall and the ride to our hotel was very smooth with minimum disruption.
Best of all was the direct route to the hotel without having to go to several other hotels as you do when using a shuttle bus.
Worth the extra cost.

Upon arrival at the Barcelona airport from London, the operator was not there to collect us and their airport office was closed. After waiting an hour and a half, another driver arrived for his pickup and he eventually took us with four others to our hotel accommodation.

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

My Review

After phoning the operator upon arrival, our instructions were to wait inside the terminal near the Tourist Information counter for the driver to arrive.
When the driver arrived he was annoyed that we were not waiting outside the terminal and was not interested that we had been given other instructions.
Would probaly not use this operator again.
