Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I was not so impressed with this tour. The Amalfi Coast is beautiful and worth seeing but this was advertised as a small group tour and we paid a fair bit more for this priviledge. Firstly we did only have 7 in our minivan but we were squashed in 3 across each row. If you were a small person it would be ok but with a couple of larger men it is a squash and especially when you are driving for most of the day. In every other tour we did we were only seated 2 across each row. We also traveled with another minivan and had to wait for them and joined with them at each stop so it wasn't exactly a small tour. At Pompeii all the groups were again joined together for the guided tour which made the group too big and the guide had a very strong accent which made him very hard to understand. The guide also concentrated way too much on the prostitutes of Pompeii which made a couple of young kids in our group very uncomfortable.

Fantastic tour. Our guide Simon was the best guide we had on any of the tours we did during our 3 weeks in Europe. His knowledge of ancient Rome was amazing and he was able to convey that knowledge in an exciting way using many fantastic stories. Thanks Simon for a great tour.

My Review

I would not recommend this tour, there are far more important things to do in Rome.
First I would have to say that our Guide, Peter, was very good and had great info if you were up the front. However a group of 25 is WAAAAAAY to big for this tour. In many of the places we visited won had to travel in single file and only the first 10 people could hear anything. Our group was so large that it was constantly getting in the way of the public and other visitors, some of which got very angry because we were always blocking their path. (and I don't blame them)

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Not impressed with this tour at all. Our first tour was Accademia Gallery. We had allowed plenty of time to arrive but it was Easter Sunday and the crowds were terrible. We then found our route blocked because of celebrations and had to run a huge detour around the closed area. We arrived 10 minutes late and was then told that were too late and we could not join the tour, we could not go into the gallery even on our own and we would not get a refund. We had not been late to any of our other tours and this was only caused by exceptional circumstances. We did do the Uffizi tour in the afternoon and was then glad we missed the morning tour. The guide had an annoying American accent and the gallery was very boring.

Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour. It was a pity it was so wet, but our guide was easy to listen to, gave us great information about the city and the tour was at a good pace. The Gondola ride was also great and we didn't mind sharing with others on our tour as it certainly saved a lot of money compared to if we had of organised a Gondola ride on our own.

Kevin was a fantastic guide and teacher. This was one of the best tours we did on our trip to Europe. He bought me so much about using the camera on manual settings and I have never used automatic since. Not only did we get some great photography tuition, but we also learnt a lot about Paris and life in the area. Thanks Kevin.

Great tour. It was good to get an over view of all the landmarks before we started looking around Paris and the ability to skip the huge lines at the Eiffel tower was worth every cent we paid for the tour.

My Review

Amazing. This was only our 2nd night in Paris and we could not believe we had a window seat at the Eiffel tower. The food was amazing and tower lit up at night was fantastic.
I would not bother doing the Seine River cruise again. It was cowed and not very interesting at all. Maybe do the cruise which has the light show
