My Review

Fully recommend this tour. My husband and I took the 5.30pm tour which took us straight to the second level. It definitely saved us waiting in queue for 2-3 hours. The late tour also gave us chance to go up to the summit and see the city lights switch on. Our guide Hayley was great, knowledgable and engaging. The only let-down with this tour was the organisation - we were apparently sent an email regarding change of time and meeting location for the tour but since we had already been away from home for 1 month at that time and not in habit of checking emails, this caused us a bit of distress when nobody met us at the original meeting location and time of 5pm.

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Would recommend if you do not have much time in Paris and would like to see both Giverny and Versailles which was the case with us. Could have easily spent more time at each location though.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the history and was engaging. Do not think I would have appreciated the Palace as much without the guide.

Siena and San Gimignano Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Would recommend if you have limited time to spend in this area. We had a morning guided tour in Siena and we wondered ourselves through San Gimignano for 1.5hours in the afternoon. The commentary in Siena was reasonable but the group was too big - 20 people to one tour guide so we didnt hear everything the guide said as she didnt have her speaker on loud enough. Having said that, the tour was reasonsably priced. San Gimignano was beautiful and think that you could easily spend a few relaxing days there.

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour was too short and I
felt more infomation could have been given. Our tour guide tended to encourage critical thinking moreso than tell us history and facts about the selected paintings. This was probably just her style which would have been ideal if she was lecturing students but what if you knew minimal art history? The group was large but there were headsets. Bear in mind that in this tour, you are joining a group of people who would've seen the Accademia together in the morning.

Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este Half-Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Did over 10-15 tours on our honeymoon and this was the worst by far. The guide gave minimal information so although we saw Hadrian's Villas and Villa d'Este, we did not come out with any new knowledge or appreciation of the places. My husband and I pretty much felt that we paid AUS$160 for the bus trip out to these sites. This was disappointing as we really wanted to see Hadrian's Villas and noone else seemed to offer the tour. To give you an idea about how much commentary there was, the tour guide had to speak two languages and even then, didnt speak half the time! On other tours that we went on, the very good tour guides pretty much spoke non-stop in english alone!

We had Tiffany as our tour guideand she was EXCELLENT. Highly recommend this tour. My husband did not know anything much about at history before going on this tour but he has been converted and the tour acted as a good foundation for us to then visit museums and churches in the Vatican, Florence and Paris.

Rome Hop-on Hop-off Double Decker Bus Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Wasted so much time waiting for the bus near Termini. My husband and I pretty much waited an HOUR to get on the bus then did one circuit on the bus and didnt hop on again. Rome is such a beautiful city to walk in and everything is quite close. This might be better suited for ppl who do not have much time in Rome and do not like to walk.
