Herrenchiemsee Palace Rail Trip from Munich

Munich, Germany

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

My Review

I have booked tours through Viator many times, and I have participated on Radius Tours in Munich on many occasions. This tour was conducted by Radius, but as interesting as it sounds, it was most disappointing. While the guide was pleasant enough, there was no more than 3 minutes of historical discussion on the palace, King Ludwig, the other sites on the nearby islands. The tour was more of a "see it yourself" with a guide to get you to the train and back. Most disappointing.

Excellent tour. The female tour leader was outstanding. She was warm, friendly, experienced and full of wonderful side stories and comments. It was a very comprehensive tour with the right balance of walking and touring by bus. I would recommend it.

Golden Circle Classic Day Trip from Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour was quite good, but the star of the show was Linda, the guide. The day was absolutely miserable from a weather perspective. It poured constantly, and it made getting out to see the sights most unpleasant, but Linda managed to keep the group up, motivated and quite content with the product. The itinerary is excellent, but it's best on a good weather day. I am so glad I took it even with the bad weather. Linda deserves a major "kudo" for her work on that tour.

The Royal Yacht Britannia

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of the best visits that I have had while traveling in years. The Royal Yacht Britannia is a must see while in Edinburgh. It's beautifully preserved, and the level of detail provided is outstanding. The purchase of the tickets in advance from Viator made things so much easier.

Munich Christmas Markets Tour

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I took this tour with trepidation as I thought I could probably see all of the Christmas markets on my own. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the tour was well done, full of historical knowledge of German Christmas traditions, stops at churches and a visit to a "December market". As well, the guide, Amanda, was quite good. She was engaging and her knowledge was impressive. My compliments.

Bordeaux Vineyards Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip

Bordeaux, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I found it to be a very interesting afternoon trip. Everything was in perfect balance, the time at the Chateau, the Degustation and the visit to St. Emilion. The guide was superb, she was passionate about her desire to share with us the history of French wine making and her desire that we all walk away inspired that the French production of wine not only benefits the world economy but our individual health. One of my better Viator experiences.

Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This is a thoroughly delightful day, in spite of the early start and 10.5 hours. The visit to Eagle's Nest, the Documentation Center and the views of southern Germany and northern Austria are not to be missed. It's a history buff's dream if you are into WWII. The only negative was the tour guide. While he had a great personality, he shared very little historical information with the group....nothing about the history of Eagle's Nest, the Nazi regime, Obersalzberg. It was a pity since the area is so rich in history. He was too busy talking about himself and obsessing about logistics on buses, elevators, meeting times, etc. That was a shame.

Nuremberg Day Trip from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I highly recommend this tour. It's new, and my tour guide was responsible for introducing this tour to the tour operator's selections. It's a terrific tour for history buffs. After a short 1.5 hour train ride to Nuremberg, you are able to enjoy two vasts contrasts, a morning focused on the Holy Roman Empire and the old city, and, after lunch, an afternoon of fascinating history of the Nazi rise to power and the remains of the monuments that they were constructing to themselves. Our guide was outstanding...he was bright and knowledgeable and demonstrated outstanding customer relations skills. The tour operator is lucky to have him. As well, this is my 7th tour with this company, and they are tops in Munich. Go on this tour and enjoy!

The tour was quite good. I would have said absolutely perfect, but our group found several places advertised on the itinerary closed on our date, including La Scala. The guide was excellent and genuinely tried to provide us a thorough historical perspective.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
One of the best surprises I have had in years! Buckingham Palace was spectacular, and the audio guide allowed me to spend hours moving at my own pace viewing the rooms, the garden and the priceless objects there.
