Rottnest Island Tour from Perth or Fremantle

Perth, Australia

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

My Review

Got there in plenty of time with Paid Voucher in hand to be told, "join the queue to get your tickets" so be warned.
Luckily the Ferry didn't leave on time as the queue was so big and everyone else was in the same situation.
A nice journey down the river and over to the Island but if you want outside seats be quick on board as not too many.
Straight off of the ferry to the Tour Bus area to sit on the bus and wait to sort out the fact that there were too many people for the small bus they had sent.
The tour itself was a whirlwind tour only 2 stops totaling 15 minutes that's it.
The Island itself is beautiful and there is plenty of food and drink opportunities making the lunch option very very expensive.
Would have preferred more time to explore.

Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip from Cairns

Cairns, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour we took included the Rainforest stop so a lot to do in a day.
Train journey was excellent and well organized, Kuranda had way more to offer than expected and having done the Rainforest option would advise spending your time better by simply exploring Kuranda.
Cable car ride back down was an excellent way to finish the day followed by excellent Scones and T in the cafe at the bottom.

We were met by a lovely chap called Chuck, who was very knowledgeable and more than able to answer all our questions. You see so much more on these kinds of tours and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in getting behind the scenes so to speak, of a city.

Vancouver Walking Tour: Gastown and Chinatown

Vancouver, Canada

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

My Review

Chinatown, if you have been to San Francisco's then this will be a great disappointment. Gastown was marginally better, but the area between the two is very dodgy and you have to walk straight through it. The police were there arresting someone as we walked through, it just doesn't feel safe. I don't think it's worth the money sadly, there are better things to do.

Vancouver Harbor and Indian Arm Lunch Cruise

Vancouver, Canada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was raining cats and dogs on the walk down to the harbour side, but once underway the sun came out and never went away. The food was plentiful and very nice, the crew were excellent. Always ready with tea and coffee, and to answer any questions that we had. The scenery was stunning, if only I had the money for one of the many beautiful lakeside houses!. A must do to see another side of Vancouver that you cannot access by road.

Danny was "the man" a few on the tour for this and Danny spent his time with everyone. He totally knew his facts and info and was extremely good at asking any questions, not too physical a tour, a very good mix of old and new stuff. Would recommend this to anyone well worth it. 5*

Pricey...maybe...but having a lovely Mercedes all to yourself and not some crowded mini bus delaying your arrival at your hotel by an hour is so so worth it. Would certainly use this again.

Koh Samui Round Island Sightseeing Tour

Koh Samui, Thailand

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

DISGRACEFUL...so appalled by what we saw we walked off the tour before we even got started. Got picked up in some battered up old open top Jeep thing, then taken to the rendezvous point where we were told we would be getting Elephant trekking, Elephant show and a Monkey show, we explained that this wasn't our tour but were told it was for free. The holding area had a baby elephant tied up in a pen no bigger than my living room just pacing left to right (horrible to see) you could see the "show" area for the elephants with goal posts so we refused to watch. The Monkey show followed so we gave that a try, absolutely abominable, the animal handlers / presenter were all smoking right next to these animals and in front of everyone this part is listed by viator as as "see the elephants and monkeys demonstrate their daily work", when did Elephants play football or hoopla, or even worse when did Monkeys in the jungle play Basketball, crawl like a soldier or ride a tricycle. We left the so called show (Circus) half way through with my wife in tears, no idea where we were but were so outraged we told the staff and went. Viator should be ashamed at being associated with such a disgraceful place.

Floating Markets and Bridge on River Kwai Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

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

My Review

Peter was our guide and Mr Pom Pom our driver., only 4 of us on the tour. Peter was very good at his job and well spoken. The floating market was interesting and the War Memorial was beautiful, would have liked more time at the memorial however. As for the bridge however NOT worth it, there is nothing to show you what it is it's simply a bridge with some horrible tacky train going over it. The rest of the area is a tourist trap / market,. In a word TACKY. No respect what so ever to the lives lost you could have simply been anywhere in Thailand with a black bridge over a river. The trip also seemed to be more about the "side trips" we called Peter the walking ATM as he just kept getting money. We refused a couple of side trips in the end. A long journey to be very disappointed unfortunately.

Chicago Grand Half-Day Tour

Chicago, Illinois

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
Oh dear, where to start?. It's 4, yes 4, hours of my life that i will never get back. If you like dirt ingrained, springs coming out of the seats tour buses, then this is the one for you . The first half of the tour is North side which is quite good, and then there is the South side bit. The driver never paused for breath once. I don't need to see every bit of the Uni campus, I don't intend to go there to study. I also didn't need the President's barber shop, his favourite take away shops , the place where he first kissed the wife,his first apartment block. I especially didn't really need to go past the street where he lives when in Chicago 4 times! . I like the guy but it was so overkilled. I think that the tour forgets that non Americans may find this all well, a bit dull. Chicago is a beautiful city and there are plenty of ways to explore. Save your sanity and money. It's a good job that we have never been let down by Viator before, because if this was a first time trip, we would not be returning customers......

I recommend doing the tour on your first full day as it will give you some insight into just how much there is to see and do. If your time is limited, at least you get to see a little bit of everything. The harbor cruise is just as good.
