Working on being a world traveler. Currently living and working in Qatar. Want to see and do as much as possible when I travel.
Giovanni is a very patient and funny. We had our class with a group of about 20 people all of whom had varying degrees of success with their pizza. The gelato was delicious and now that we have the recipes we can make our own pizzas at home. Can't wait to give it a try
I was disappointed by this tour for 2 reasons: we didn't get off the bus at all in Naples (had to take any pictures through the bus window) and we only spent about 2.5 hours in Pompeii. I feel that the amount of time spent at the ruins was not sufficient. For me, this tour would be better as a day trip to Pompeii, including a short tour of the highlights with a guide and ample time to explore the ruins on your own. However, if you want just an overview and a day with not a lot of walking then this is a fine tour. The guides are knowledgeable and their English is very good.
Frederica, our morning guide, made the tour in the very entertaining. She is very knowledgeable about the artwork in the Vatican museums and the Sistene Chapel. She also explained all of the parts of St Peter's Basilica and the significance of various aspects. There is a lot of walking in the morning but it went by so quickly because of Frederica's personality and descriptions she gave. Rachel, our guide for the 3 Basilicas tour in the afternoon, was very knowledgeable about each location we visited, explaining about the papal doors at each location in detail and how each location relates to St Peter's in Vatican City. Overall we were very happy with this tour.
