Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour of Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Massimo was AWESOME! This was definitely THE tour that our teens enjoyed the most in Rome. It felt as though we had taken a time machine back to early Rome going underneath present Rome. A must do tour in Rome! Thanks Massimo for your engaging personality and your incredible knowledge -- you were a walking history book.

My Review

First tour in the morning was difficult. We could barely hear our tour guide who walked around with a microphone and small speaker that squawked most of the time. We felt rushed in St. Mark's and would have wanted to stay a little longer to see more there. We ended up ditching the rest of the morning tour simply because we could not hear our guide. The afternoon tour in the boat which took us along the Grand Canal was spectacular. The guide was very knowledgeable and interactive.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our morning tour at the Accademia was conducted by a very knowledable tour guide. He did a great job of educating us on Michaelangelo and his love of sculpture. Absolute must tour! Our afternoon tour at the Uffizi was equally inspiring. Our guide was extremely well versed on the arts and made this tour exceptional. Skipping all the lines was an added benefit!

Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Obviously just seeing the leaning tower is a great memory of ours but I have to say, I wish this tour hadn't taken a half day. The bus from Florence to Pisa was comfortable but the guide who spoke in English had such a heavy accent that it made it difficult to hear her at times. It is a long drive to and from Florence. In retrospect, I wish we had made a brief stop on the train from our travel from Rome to Florence rather than eating up a good portion of our day sitting on a bus and then walking to and from the bus parking lot to get to the tower. In Pisa it was so crowded that we didn't even get a chance to go up the tower given the short free time after our tour. We did get good pizza there!

Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

All I can say is, "Alessandro, you were great!" My wife and I did this cooking class with our teen sons. They were timid at first but with Alessandro's great personality and encouragement they quickly got into the cooking mode. Our food was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and fell in love with Florence. We look forward to returning again and to taking some more cooking classes! The boys have already made the Tiramasu!

My Review

Beware...if you have a tight schedule while in Rome and you want to take this tour during the tourist busy season, you may want to hold off from buying this tour ahead of time. Viator was GREAT about working with us ...so no problems with them. Our problem was trying to get in to the tour itself. We had a window of open time and when we went to get our tickets the showtimes we wanted were already sold out. When you buy this through Viator you are buying for a specific day and not a specific tour time of that day. We tried twice to go back to do this with our teen boys but it was already sold out. Unfortunately we never got in so I cannot comment on the 3-D experience. Just know that Viator has responded very well to our situation.

Massimo, our guide, was AWESOME! He did a great job of transporting us back to early Rome to learn about the burial sites for the early Christians. This was by far THE most engaging tour we took in Rome because of Massimo's enthusiasm. Our two teen boys not only enjoyed the tour but LEARNED a great deal. Shannon, the other tour guide with whom we shared the bus with, was equally as great as Massimo. The two worked very well together when the two groups were going from site to site on the bus. A must do tour!

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our tour group seemed rather large. Our tour guide's English was a struggle to interpret given her heavy accent. She seemed to be new at giving tours, in our opinion. It goes without saying that this is a much encouraged tour just to be able to see everything. I would have preferred a tour guide whose English was more refined.
