We first used Viator back in 2011 to book a couple of day trips out of Paris, France. As seasonal travellers, we like to try out different booking services available to consumers. That’s the beauty of travel – there’s no right or wrong way to do it, and there are gazillions of resources available.
- You search for your desired day trip
- Choose the dates you want
- Check availability
- Add it to your shopping cart
- Book and pay for it
- You get a confirmation email
- Meet your driver and guide outside your accommodation at a specified time*
