Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
We couldn't stand it and left the tour half way through for several reasons. The tour guide's broken English was difficult to understand. The sound system that they use is of poor quality and impossible to hear if there is any noise in the area. The portion of the tour involving St. Mark's Cathedral was hurried and just a very brief overview with the guide suggesting we return later, at additional cost, to see the interesting parts of the church. If I had it to do over, I'd do it on my own. Venice's main tourist attractions are close enough that you can do your own walking tour with a good map and cheap guidebook.

Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The narration by the guide on the bus to Pisa was too dry and the air conditioner on the bus didn't work well on the hot return trip. However, once we arrived in Pisa and survived the long, hot walk to the field of miracles, the guide that met us in Pisa was great, funny and very interesting. Overall, it was a worthwhile trip and a must see when you're in Florence.

Skip the Line: Small-Group Florence Renaissance Walking Tour with Accademia Gallery

Florence, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
The tour guide's English was difficult to understand and this was made worse by the poor sound quality of the earphone system that they use. Also, from what we could understand, the walking part of the tour before arriving at Accademia was too full of dry facts and figures and no real interesting tidbits or stories that I expected from a local guide.
