Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Enjoyed the tour, wished we could have spent more time in different sections of the museum rather than dissecting Michelangelo's work on the Sistine Chapel. For people who are seeing it for the first time or who haven't done any previous reading on his work then I can understand that it is time well spent. Our guide was lovely and extremely patient with the endless questions she was asked. The one thing that would improve the tour but is out of anybody's control is less crowds, perhaps a reservation system like the Borghese could ease the pressure.

Skip the Line: Florence Uffizi Gallery Tickets

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great to be able to avoid the long queue of people waiting to buy tickets, the gallery was packed with people so listening to the audioguides we hire was at times difficult especially when a tour guide speaking another language stands right next to you and starts talking to his group. A tour may be a better way of moving through the Uffizi however we enjoyed being able to pick and choose the artists and periods that we were interested in.

Saw the long queue of people and was glad to have pre-paid for tickets. The Accademia is excellent and it was nice to be able to wander off and explore other areas of the gallery.

Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was excellent and so much fun, our contact in Florence was a wonderful lady and very helpful and the class itself is something we'll never forget. Our teachers were patient, entertaining and informative, they made learning how to cook enjoyable and we're looking forward to trying out some of the recipes on our friends. Eating the food afterwards gave us a good chance to learn more about our classmates and the opportunity to try food we might never have ordered at a restaurant. Thank you, this class was one of the highlights of our trip.

Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A good way to get an overview of the city and see areas we couldn't explore during our stay in Paris. It was a cold and wet day, very windy on the Eiffel tower, but bypassing the queue was again worth the expense of pre-paying. We ran out time to take the Seine River Cruise, the weather just wasn't good and our accommodation was too far from the departure point to get there easily.
