Private Tour: Agra and the Taj Mahal Day Trip from Delhi

Delhi, India

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was excellent. Reccomend going on a sunday due to lower traffic in Delhi. We had no traffic issues along the way. Stay hydrated! The Taj is beautiful but the inside portion is very hot and crowded. Be on your toes for pick pockets inside the Taj. No need to get one of the many photographers to follow you. You can take plenty of pics yourself and your guide can snap photos too. At Fort, be sure and look up. There are monkees, bats, and parrots to be seen in addition to the wonderful fort. Make sure the guide tells you the history of the Black Taj Mahal. It's almost as fascinating as the Taj itself.

Private Walking Tour: Old Delhi including Ancient Havelis and Chandni Chowk

Delhi, India

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Fort is the highlight of this tour. Take lots of picturs and enjoy the history, scenery, and above all-the quiet. In the Chandni Chowk you will be wishing you were back in the fort. It is a cesspool that is worth seeing for the spectacle. Enjoy the crush of humanity but watch yourself. It would be insane to bring small children on this tour. This tour is for the experience not the shopping. You will get better quality souvenirs at the Airport- honest. The auto rickshaw ride in the spice market is on par with any roller coaster ride- without any of the safety features. A tour of this area is a must since you would be in serious trouble if attempted on your own.

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was only on her second tour ever and it did not show at all. She was very personable and did a superb job herding our group. I reccomend doing the "secret" portion as it shows you very cool things not available to the public. Only detractor was lack of postcards and books (given theat you can not take pictures inside)

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

Pompei was awe inspring as was Vesuvis. What was not great was the lunch which caused almost a two hour mid day delay. Tiberius Restaraunt was ill prepared to serve the tour group and the food was not great at all. While Robert told some fascinating history, Violet detracted from the tour with barely passable English.The tour would have been much better with better tour leaders and scrapping the useless lunch. Also the trip break at the tourist trap store was ridiculous and the bathrooms were nasty. .

Umbria in One Day Trip from Rome: Assisi and Perugia including the Basilica of St Francis

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Peter set the standard for tour leader on this trip. We covered a LOT of tuf and saw/learned so much. Perhaps some extra shopping time in Assisi would have been good or a visit to St. Francis's original church. But still--very good trip. Lunch was heavenly and we had the owner and his sons undivided attention. Do this trip over Pompei if you have to choose..
