San Francisco Fire Engine Tour

San Francisco, California

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

My Review

The main reason why I chose to do this activity was to go over the Golden Gate bridge on a fire engine truck. Instead of doing this, we were driven over the Bay Bridge to Treasure Island and ended up in a winery, sampling wines... When I booked this activity (some months ago) the ride over Golden Gate was definitely advertised and this was only underlined by the photos published on the web page. The site still demonstrates same route over Golden Gate. The fire engine also had a sign reading "We go over the Golden Gate bridge" and a photo of this sign is available upon request. To make the long story short, the whole idea is built over the Golden Gate/Sausalito/Fort Point/Fort Baker route drive, but I never saw such a drive on the 1st of June (3 pm) session, without any explanation or apology provided from the tour organizer. If they had advertised that there is a possibility of not driving over the Golden Gate bridge but following alternative route to Treasure Island through Bay bridge, I would have given 5 stars to this activity...

Small Group Provence and Lavender Museum Day Trip from Avignon

Avignon, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Another very very good experience at Provence, tailored especially for anyone who is interested in lavander, its products, cultivation etc. All the stops that were made in several lavaner fields and the museum where good organized and the time was adequate. Maybe we could have an additional 10 minutes time at Senanque Abbey, but this does not take away the general feeling which was very positive.

Provence Le Grand Tour

Avignon, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I was very satisfied on this trip. The guide was very knowledgable and provided historical and other local information whenever needed. I would prefer to visit 1-2 places less, in order to spend more time to the remaining ones (e.g. 20 minutes at Pont du Gard are totally inadequate and 45 minutes at Orange theater are double than actually needed), but the whole feeling is a very positive one. Provence is one of the most beautiful places in Europe and so are its people. Kind, helpful, trying to speak English and to please the tourists as much as possible. I will not have any second thought in planning a visit in the region again in the future.

Montserrat and Cava Trail Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Another spectacular experience to Catalonia land. Thanks Viator and the local vendor for this. I wish we could stay more in Montserrat mountains. Viator must organize 2-days trips to this region, as the trekking options are so many, that we did not even touch them during the 2,5 hours of stay to Montserrat. The underground cava trail was also something not to be missed. Although irrelevant between them, both of the experiences added to a finally glorious day.

Full Day Tour to the Torres del Paine National Park

El Calafate, Argentina

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The only negative fact is that we had to change four different vehicles from the door of our hotel to the final destination and another vehicles on our way back. Other than that, it was an exceptional experience, which I recommend to everybody and I would definitely like to relive it.
