Kyoto Afternoon Tour: Heian Shrine, Sanjusangendo, Kiyomizu Temple

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful tour. Takes you in just an afternoon to some of the more pleasant sights in Kyoto. Besides visiting several important temples, it takes you to a top of a hill from where you get a great view of the surroundings and also through an interesting market that has all kinds of gifts and curios. Certainly worth going on this tour.

Kyoto and Nara Day Trip from Kyoto including Nijo Castle

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of our most fascinating tours we took in Japan. Nara is an interesting, historical, place and the tour makes the trip easy and enjoyable. The guides were great and gave us a fabulous commentary on the background of the places we visited, as well as the historical perspective. The lunch was not great, but tolerable. The trip was well planned and very comfortable. A must in Kyoto.

If you have just a day at your disposal in Tokyo, this is the tour to take. It gives you a fairly complete and enjoyable view of Tokyo.

Loved the cruise too, since it allowed us to relax and enjoy the view. The lunch was also surprisingly good. Overall, we had a very enjoyable and pleasant day.

Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An outstanding tour. It gives you a fantastic view of Istanbul in a single day. Excellent guide, Gulya, who spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable. Enjoyed every minute of the tour, particularly Topkapi palace and the view of the Bosphorus. There is a lot of walking, so we were tired by the time we got to the Grand Bazaar. But there is so much to see, one does not mind the walking.

Excellent tour. It was great to see Europe from Camlica Hill in Asia. Except for the ever-present traffic of Istanbul, the trip over the Bosphorous Bridge and around the city was interesting. Enjoyed the palace tour. Excellent guide and well-planned tour. Definitely worthwhile.

Very convenient. No problem locating the representative and we were on our way in minutes. Much better than trying to find a taxi or the best way to the hotel. Strongly recommended.

Arles, Les Baux and Saint Remy de Provence from Marseille

Marseille, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic tour! It takes you to many wonderful and exciting places that are not as well known as the coastal towns. To spend time in the area where Van Gogh painted many of his famous paintings, wander through Roman theaters and ruins, walk through castles and enjoy fabulous vistas makes this a very memorable excursion. The guide, Gail, though somewhat inexperienced, made up by being very helpful, enthusiastic and pleasant. I would highly recommend the tour.

Monaco and Eze Small Group Day Trip from Nice

Nice, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of the best tours I have ever taken. There is so much to see and do in Eze and Monaco. The drive up to Monaco is itself fantastic and the scenery is breathtaking. Monaco is absolutely amazing. Such a tiny country and so much to offer, from the Casino to the palace, gardens and the racetrack. The guide was very knowledgable and extremely helpful and accommodating, making it a wonderful trip. If you are in Nice, this tour is an absolute must.

Geneva City Tour

Geneva, Switzerland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a very pleasant trip through Geneva and its neighborhoods. The guide, Maggie, was very knowledgable and made everything exciting and enjoyable. We particularly liked the little train through the old town. The drive through the UN areas was interesting. We took a cruise after the trip since it was not available with this tour in April. Overall, a wonderful way to get to know Geneva.

Salzburg Day Trip from Vienna

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent trip. Salzburg is really a pretty place and the trip was very well planned. It was a long drive, but the sights on the way were impressive, as were the comments made by the guide. We enjoyed the walking tour in Salzburg, again because of the excellent guide. We had more than two and a half to ourselves to enjoy the place. Going up to the castle on the cable car was certainly worth it because of the great views from the castle. There are a lot of choices for restaurants, but we chose to have a quick lunch and spend most of our time walking around and enjoying the ambience. Really a fantastic day.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an outstanding trip. The guide, Sharka, was wonderful. She was friendly, helpful and very knowledgable. She tried to keep the group together and went out of her way to help everyone. The city is lovely, as is the castle. The drive, though 3 hours long, was quite enjoyable and the guide told us a lot about the historical background. The walking tour at Cesky Krumlov was very enjoyable. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and is highly recommended.

Potsdam Half-Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Potsdam is a great place and the trip could have been a very enjoyable one. Unfortunately, it is a very poorly planned tour, with no directions to help the visitors and not even a local map. There is just a fairly poor recording that one listens to and then you can get off at one of the three stops in Potsdam, returning to catch the bus in 2 hours. They could easily have given some directions and guidance. Stopping for a short time at the three stops will also be great. The driver and her assistant were extremely rude and unhelpful. I would rate this as the worst trip we have taken with Viator over several years. I would suggest Viator drop this tour or work with the local companies to improve it significantly. Potsdam is a great attraction and should not be spoiled by poor planning and bad attitude.

My Review

Excellent tour. We loved every minute. The guide, Matt, was wonderful. His knowledge of the history and culture of Berlin was fantastic. He tried his best to make the tour interesting and enjoyable. He was friendly and pleasant. I do not think we could have asked for more. We learned a lot and gained a better insight into events as they unfolded years ago. I would highly recommend this tour.

My Review
Excellent tour. I would recommend it very highly. The tour not only covers Picasso's life in a beautiful style, it also shows you Barcelona as it existed more than a century ago. You see streets and alleys that you would generally not visit. It gives you a whole new flavor of the charms of Barcelona.

Viking History Half-Day Tour from Stockholm

Stockholm, Sweden

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It was a wonderful trip, with an outstanding and very knowledgeable guide, Mr, Steinthor. He has made a deep study of the Vikings and his tremendous knowledge comes through in all the places we visited. He gives you a fascinating account of the times when the Vikings ruled the seas and of their lives, customs and organization. The places we visited were exciting and the guide made history come alive. You come out of the trip feeling as if you understand how the Vikings lived , how they governed themselves and how civilixed there were even with today's standards. This was one of the best trips we've had with Viator.

The bus trip was not good since they used the hop-on-hop-off bus. The commentary was not audible. A separate coach should have been used.
