Capri Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was a very long day...but so worth it! Capri was beautiful and one would probably need to spend more time there to appreciate the sites and scenery. The line-up for the Blue Grotto was not too long for us...we were very fortunate! Although it was a short ride into the Blue Grotto, it was a sight and experience that was truly amazing!

Special thanks to our tour guide, Patrick and the amazing (young looking) driver (forgot his name). There were so many people in the tour, but Patrick always managed to get people organized back to the bus or on the boat.

I highly recommend this tour.

Rome to Pompeii Shuttle Bus & Independent Day Trip

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was our second trip to Pompeii. Our first trip was a guided tour. This tour allowed us to explore and experience the sites on our own leisure. It was AMAZING! We saw so many different sites we didn't see on our first visit 3 years ago. I would highly recommend it if one would like to explore on one's own time frame. We'd also rented the audio guide.

Special thanks to Geo! She was very informative, humorous and punctual! Great tour guide!

Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was our 2nd trip back to Rome with the same tour. We were NOT disappointed! Our guide, Francesca, was knowledgeable, informative and professional. This experience was so very different from our visit in 2011. Although there were similar sites, we were taken through the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum with different routes. Some areas that were not available in 2011 were opened during this visit.

The most unforgettable experience during the Colosseum visit was that, we were sitting near the entrance way at the partially rebuilt floor. The guide was giving us a historical insight about the magnificent Colosseum while we admired and appreciated the surroundings. We were even allowed to take pictures in that area afterwards. It was truly AMAZING!

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our driver, Christoper, was totally amazing!!! He kept our group (8 people) entertained the entire day! Christopher was humourous, entertaining, knowledgeable and considerate. The long day of seeing 3 different places did not seem long with Christopher. We were a little disappointed that the tour in Pompeii was too brief. The time spent was very limited to appreciate the amazing historical site. (Anyone wishing to spend more time at Pompeii should consider the other tour). The local guide for Pomepeii, Gaetano, was amazingly knowledgeable and humourous as well!

Catacombs and Roman Countryside Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The catacombs of St. Callixtus was an amazing experience. The guide, (a priest), was enlightening, informative and very thorough. We enjoyed his guided tour tremendously!! We also enjoyed Rosa's (our tour guide through out the day) detailed historical explanations about the Appian Way, and the Roman Viaducts. It was disappointing that we did not get close enough to take decent pictures of the Viaducts (similar to other pictures posted on this site).
Overall, it was a very interesting and relaxing day.
