Viator is all about traveling and it’s Travel Blog is one of the best blogs to visit for reliable and in depth travel insights, news, and destination information.
Visual Aesthetics – 10
Very professional looking. Clean lines, good layout, organized, pretty images.
User Friendliness – 9
Organized and clutter-free sidebar. Readable text. Fast loading time. Only problem is that the link to Viator Home is a bit confusing pointing me to the Viator Home (duh!) instead of the Viator Travel Blog Home. Very slight irritant but still irritating. A more prominent link to the travel blog’s home would be appreciated.
Reading Enjoyment – 8
A lot of interesting reads here. As a commercial site’s blog you might expect it to contain entries that are sales pitch in disguise. However, the entries are genuinely informative and helpful, which does a lot more for Viator’s profit than a “sales blog” ever would. The entries are usually on the long side though.
Useful Info – 10
Traveler’s gold mine. This blog doesn’t sacrifice what it can do for its readers in terms of imparting plenty of useful information for the sake of posting more shorter and easier entries that at the same time contain less meat. Lots and lots of stuff about things you can do, places, you can go, itineraries, travel tips, and travel news. Plenty of links as well to relevant travel sites.
Overall Experience – 9
If you want a sneak peek before traveling somewhere, visit this blog and search for your destination. A great blog for those who already have travel plans, are on the planning stage, and just want to travel via the net.
