Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very interesting tour!!! Our tour guide, Johanna, was quite informative and able to answer many questions posed to her. She took us into the secret rooms and passages and provided us with a great history of the activities that took place in the palace. I would not have wanted to be a prisoner in that palace!! I recommend this tour - it takes you places that the general public admission does not allow you to go.

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

If this is something that you want to see - I most certainly encourage you to book a tour - the lines are VERY long and start forming at least 2 hours before the ticket sales start. 23,000 people a day!!! - so our guide, David, informed us. This is a must do tour when in Rome. Words cannot express the impressiveness of Vatican City. Our tour guide, David, was a joy to listen to. He provided us with the history of the art work and sculptures. He spoke with great knowledge, confidence and humour. I recommend this tour and David.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Two fabulous tours of two very important art galleries/museums. In the morning, Sue (I think that was her name - she is an older women with a British accent, I think she may have been an Art/History teacher - she was quite passionate about the history of what we were seeing), took us through the Accademia tour and regaled the group with a great deal of Michelangelo history. I enjoyed her detail and passion very much. In the afternoon, William, provided us with an extensive art lesson on some of the very important paintings hanging in the Uffizi Gallery. Both guides gave me the information/knowledge to really appreciate, understand and translate the meaning of the works of art that I was viewing. I recommend this tour and Sue and William.

Florence River Cruise on a Traditional Barchetto

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was alot of fun. Our tour guide, Katarina, was very welcoming and fun to be around. The evening was quite beautiful and the boat ride was very relaxing and informative (and the Proseco - bubbly and cold). A nice way to view both sides of the Arno river and learn a bit of Florentine history. I recommend this tour and Katarina as a guide.

Verona City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Verona, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent way to see the sites of the city. Verona is beautiful. My daughter and I only had a few short hours to spend in Verona (a quick stop between Venice and Florence). Next time, I would plan an overnight in Verona - to really see and visit the sites. The hop on hop off tour provides head phones with explanations of the sites in a variety of languages. Even though we did not really have the opportunity of time to actually "hop off and on", the bus stopped frequently enough to allow others to do so, if they wished. The entire tour takes about an hour - there are two lines. Had we had enough time, we would have done the second one as well. I recommend this as a great way to see the city - if you are staying over night - I would do this tour first to get an idea of the things that you wish to see.

Venice Tour Including Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We did this tour in the morning - a nice time - not too crowded with people and easier to see the sites. This is a wonderful way to see and wander through some of the streets (calles and fondements) of Venice and learn some history at the same time. This tour walked us through the neighbourhoods of Dorsoduro and San Polo followed by a relaxing Gondola ride through the smaller canals of San Marco. Our walking guide, Francesca (with the blonde, longer hair), was quite sweet and funny with an extensive knowledge of the area. I recommend this tour and Francesca.

Cicchetti and Wine Tour of Venice’s Jewish Ghetto

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was our first tour in Venice (on the evening of our arrival). It was a most pleasant way to get a feel for the city and have some nice eats and wine too. Francesca (with the darker hair) was a delightful hostess and guide - she took us to some very authentic eating/drinking establishments. This experience and history lesson was a great start to our vacation. I recommend this tour and Francesca.

Giverny and Monet

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We (a family of 4 - with 2 teenage daughters) thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Gardens of Monet. Although it was very busy, we could still see all that was there. Would liked to have had a bit more time to explore Giverny itself - lovely little community.

Moulin Rouge Paris Dinner and Show

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The show was fabulous - beautiful cast, beautiful costumes and great upbeat music. We were very impressed by the entertainers who performed in between the dancing acts. The meal was OK but not fabulous for the price. I would suggest skipping the dinner part and just pay to watch the show.
