Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Mixed feelings on this one... Pros: a) The islands are AMAZING and very much worth seeing, b) They do take you to see a blown glass demostration in Murano and a good quality stitching store in Burano. Cons: a) Our guide was quite poor. She spoke in 3 languages repeating the explanation thrice in a dull drone voice. Very hard to follow... No passion. Add to that the fact that it was very noisy on the boat and quite simply I was unable to understand a thing she said. b) Too little time on the islands... Really, only take this tour if you are short on time in Venice... If not, go on your own to the islands... It's better.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I have to give this tour a 4 only because although the Uffizi tour was a 5 the Accademia tour was a 3. Here go the pros and cons. Pros: a) You WILL skip a considerable line (at least 1 hr waiting), b) Without a guide you really cannot appreciate the historical significance and small details in the art, c) Our guide in the Uffizi was extraordinary. Cons: a) You will be standing for quite some time, b) The Accademia guide's explanation was rather dry... I ended up going off by myself.

Excellent! SO MUCH FUN!!!! Our guide Franceso was brilliant! The Appian way lined with cypresses was beautiful. Our lunch of wine and cheese delicious. Loved it! Watchout if you are a biking newbie. The Appian way is rocky and very tough to ride through if you don't dominte biking! Expect to fall!

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was an amazing experience I enjoyed in every way and most definitely recommend to any traveller staying more than 4 days in Rome! Our guide Marcelo was funny, knowledgeable and professional. He took us through the beautiful Amalfi Coast towns, from the Mamma Mia curves to Vetri sur Mare gelatos and all the way to lovely Positano. Blue oceans, crevices and rifts, buganbilia flowers painting the landscapes in hot pink, limoncello and delicious bufala mozzarella. What a trip! And finally Pompeii! It is in excellent state and our guide Antonio is an old-timer who dominates the ruins. LOVED it and would recommend to all!
