Viator VIP: Early Access to Alcatraz and Exclusive Cable Car Sightseeing Tour

San Francisco, California

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

My Review

Our tour guide, Arturo, met us right on time in a motorized antique trolly car. Arturo was very personable and conveyed a lot of information as we toured all around the city and over the Golden Gate Bridge. The stop at Boudin Bakery was a huge disappointment. (They were obviously not prepared for us and their tour guide from the bakery was awful.) Having very much enjoyed a previous tour of the bakery, this time was a real let-down. The ferry ride to Alcatraz was great and the self guided audio tour of the prison was excellent. Unfortunately, Arturo told us that in order to complete the remainder of the city tour we had to be on the 11:00 return ferry. This left us no time to explore the island. I think everyone on the tour would have rather spent more time on Alcatraz Island than driving around expensive neighborhoods seeing how "the other half" live - very boring to stare at houses for an hour.

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Skipping the line at the Eiffel Tower was in itself more than worth the price of the tour. We met our guide just under the tower where she gave us an informative history of the tower and its construction. Then, at the prescribed hour she escorted us to the front of the long line of tourists. The guard stopped the flow of those on line and directed our small group to go ahead. The looks on the faces of those waiting on line for over an hour were priceless. Our tour was at 9:30pm and, it being a beautiful, clear night, the views were spectacular. After our ascent to the summit we took the elevator down one level then strode down the 750+ stairs to ground level. All-in-all, a terrific experience. Thank you Viator!

Paris Paradis Latin Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This dinner show was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. The theater was beautiful, the dinner was top-notch, and the show was fantastic. We had great seats, very close to and facing the stage. I would recommend this show over the show at the Moulin Rouge.
