The tour was very good. It was a great introduction into what to see in Venice. The guide, Fredrika, was the best. She was knowledgable and patient and fun. She made the tour a very good experience. I would highly recommend this tour.

Skip The Line: Best of Florence Walking Tour including Accademia Gallery and Duomo

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great way to get to know the basics of Florence. I would do this early in my stay so that I could get a good feeling for the city. The guide was good and knew her stuff. I enjoy learning about the history of the city and its' structures and this helped a lot.

Viator VIP: Sistine Chapel Private Viewing and Small-Group Tour of the Vatican's Secret Rooms

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour was very good and our guide was great. She had graduated with a degree in History from Texas and knew her stuff. She also did not have an accent. Skip the cheaper one and run with this if you don't have kids. Worth the extra money.

Rome Hop-on Hop-off Double Decker Bus Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

So so. No air conditioning and it was really hot in Rome while we were there. I think the red bus had it. Also check schedule closely. We stood at a stop that had been cancelled and we didn't know it.

Rome by Night Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I liked it. We also did a number of tours so this overlapped but it was great to see the ruins at night. We also did the day tours so we could have skipped this and did it ourselves but it was good. Just make sure you see the ruins at night, they are spectacular.

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great tour and I would recommend the 0830 upgrade in English so you get the full tour. This includes the 3rd ring and underground. Both of these are worth the extra money plus you get to start early. It was very hot when we visited in July. The guide was very good and patient and allowed time for pictures.

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very long day. Pompeii was great but could have skipped the tour at Vesuvius and spent more time at Pompeii. The short hike to the top of Vesuvius is hard and really not worth the time and effort. Be ready for a very long day. The guide was great at Pompeii but I did feel rushed.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I did this with my wife, daughter, and son. I think that this is the best way to see the Vatican Museums for the first time. Skip the line was great and the early start even better due to the heat. My wife and I also did Secret Rooms tour which was good but very expensive and not all that much better, especially if you have children. Very crowded and for us very hot in July. Good tour guide and informative.
