Overall a good ttour of the highlights of the Uffizi gallery..Recommended. I just wish they didn't skip the works of Caravaggio and Rembrandt even if this means the tour would be a little bit longer

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Gorgeous palace. Excellent tour guide. I was riveted by the stories of paranoia and conspiracy in the then Republic of Venice and Casanova's exploits. However, I wish the tour included the prisons and the Bridge of Sighs. I loved that the guide said at the end that she hopes we explore the beauty of Venice because there are really no bad sights and that WE should be patient of the Venetians because THEY are very stressed out from the tourists. I think it should be the other way around and I am glad they are sharing their city with us but it was very gracious of her to say this.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Wish tour was longer. However, the glassmaking and lacemaking "demonstrations" were superficial and little more than sales pitches. Having been to the Corning Museum of Glass in NY I know what a glass making denonstration is really like. The products are good, so it would have been great to have a real glass making demonstration and a lacemaking demonstration. The latter consisted of 2 sentences introducing the name of the non-English speaking woman and saying she was weaving lace by hand. Seriously, not an exaggeration. A longer tour with real demonstrartions and perhaps a stop at Lido and its beach would have been excellent. Otherwise, I thought the colorful fishermens" houses in Burano and the ancient church in Torcello was great.

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

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Gorgeous basilica with Byzantine domes and gold mosaics so finely done they look like paintings at first. Nice walking tour of Venice. However, found it a little hard to understand guide and she was not very articulate. I also wish we had gone up to the museum on the second floor or gone up the Campanille for views of the city.

Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A gondola ride is of course iconic and it is a joy to glide down the Grand canal looking at the decaying elegant palaces. However, I wish the ride was longer. I know they probably don't like tourists but this is their job so I wish the gondoliers were less jaded and friendlier. Also, FYI there is one serenader for a fleet of gondolas that traverse the canal together, not one for each gondola, if this is important to you, and there are 6 passengers to a gondola.

Paris, France

My Review

Delightful day, with transportation to and from the train station both ways. Avignon Palace gorgeous-this is a self guided tour. So are the other stops but they are delightful to explore on one's own. Recommended.

Paris City Tour by Minivan, Seine River Cruise and Lunch at the Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Comprehensive tour of Paris. FYI-tour of Notre Dame and Montmarte is on your own and aside from these two stops and the Eiffel Tower, you do not stop at the other sights. The only way to see the Eiffel Tower, though is through one of these tours that allows you to skip the line which was easily 2 hours long on the day I went (late April). If you only have one day in Paris, would recommend this comprehensive tour.
