Key West Day Trip

Miami, Florida

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We were picked up from our hotel 25 minutes late. We were the last pick up, and the only 2 seats left were by the toilet, but not together. Well, somebody has to be last, and the company cannot GUARANTEE that husbands and wives can sit together. Nevertheless, not a good start. The guide warned passengers to confine themselves to "number 1"s in the toilet; that "number 2"s would make things very unpleasant on the bus. He was right. Several of the passengers clearly ignored his advice, and long before we got to Key West the stench was terrible. The bus transported us from A to B, thus earning their one star. Very unpleasantly. The guide told us that the toilet could not be emptied at Key West. We decided we could not face the journey back, so hired a car and drove ourselves. I strongly recommend that anyone wanting to go to Key West (and it is well worth going to) finds a means other than this company's trip.

Yosemite is breathtaking. Our guide and driver, Leo, has such a depth of knowledge and such enthusiasm, that he added a huge amount to the enjoyment of the day. Highly recommended.

My Review

My wife and I were booked on a Bay cruise tonight, with a guaranteed window table, and Champagne. We got the table, but instead of Champagne were supplied with a sparkling wine. When I complained, I was told that the sparkling wine was "chemically identical" to Champagne, so what was the problem. The waitress said that we could "upgrade" to Champagne, for about $40. We declined.
We left the vessel before it sailed, so had no cruise, no food and definitely no Champagne!
I am surprised that Viator cooperates with such a deception.
So, if you want a cruise with a bottle which is "chemically identical" to Champagne, this is for you. If not, and you don't want to do business with such a company, give it a miss.

Does what it says on the tin!. Probably worth going on, especially if you are keen on celebrity culture.

The VIP Experience at Universal Studios Hollywood

Los Angeles, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A superb day out. A bit expensive, perhaps, but worth it for a first visit. The behind the scenes element needs the VIP tour, so it is necessary if that side of things is your interest. The guide makes sure you miss nothing. For subsequent visits, if the theme park element is your main interest, then a cheaper "front of queue" pass would be OK. If we go again, it will be for the VIP version!

Excellent. They really look after you. Front of the queues for boarding and disembarkation. It was the captain who showed us around, not the first officer. We would certainly go on the tour again.

Wonderful production. We have seen the show in UK, and loved it. The NY show was probably even better.
