There are a few sightseeing places in which the queue can be long. You may not have much time while visiting a particular city and then if you stumble upon a huge waiting line for around 2-3 hours, you are in a dilemma whether to see that world-famous place or move on to the other ones.
There is a way available to solve this problem but then the solution doesn’t come for free.
Skip the Line Ticket:
Buy Skip-the-line tickets. The Skip-the-line tickets are usually quite costly and you will have to see if it is worth spending. The Skip-the-line ticket too will have some queue but surely very less than what you will find otherwise. You can directly go to the desk, show the ticket and move inside.
The other solution is to buy Combo tickets. Combo tickets usually pair one famous destination with one not so visited destination, thereby, providing you a good discount on the total price. The combo ticket might provide you with a Skip-the-line entrance for both or the famous destination which will help you see that particular famous place. Though you should buy only if you will be visiting the other destination provided or else skip-the-line ticket might be a more sensible purchase. One of the good examples of a combo ticket is the Canal Cruise + Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam. The combo ticket will be worth 33.75 Euros which otherwise would be around 41 Euros.
Book with a Guide:
The third solution is to book with a Guide, who has arrangements to show you around the famous sightseeing place. You will be provided a time and you can visit them at that particular time.
Reserve Online beforehand:
The fourth solution and the recommended solution is to reserve online at the time and date you plan to visit that amazing sightseeing place. You can visit the particular sightseeing’s website and you can book it online with the timing mentioned. At a few places, the reservations can be full before few months and at others, you can reserve just before half an hour too. One of our clients after looking at the long queue for the Vatican Museum reserved a ticket online which was half an hour later. The online reservation has online convenience charges of around 2 to 4 Euros but they are worth spending as you don’t exactly have to worry about queues and can reach according to the time chosen by you.
