Milan Half-Day Sightseeing Tour with da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great tour. Liked combination of bus and walking tour. Guide was excellent and informative, good English, easy to understand, and gave us general useful information for visiting Milan. Only issue was we did not tour the Duomo as the tour description indicated, and not enough free time in Duomo piazza.

Skip The Line: Best of Florence Walking Tour including Accademia Gallery and Duomo

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The guide Angela was excellent, very informative, easy to understand with the headsets. Really enjoyed the tour, very worthwhile doing it, and the gelati break was very nice. Could be improved by: spend more time in the Duomo and talk about more artwork etc. in there; have a proper comfort stop with more than one toilet so we don't need to wait for everyone to use it one by one (eg at public toilets in Duomo Piazza); have genuine skip-the-line access to Accademia - we actually had to wait 15 minutes behind other tour groups, probably still shorter than the regular queue, but the tour really should be called "Join-a-shorter-line" rather than "skip-the-line".

Skip the Line: Small Group Florence Uffizi Gallery Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was definitely worthwhile doing this tour. The guide Angelo was excellent, very informative and also entertaining. We saw a good range of artwork, and Angelo made it all very interesting and gave us a solid base to build on for our own time in the Uffizi afterwards. I particularly liked the fact that the tour did finish inside the Uffizi with plenty of time for us to go back and see more by ourselves. Only thing was that it wasn't really "skip-the-line", it was more "join-a-shorter-line" behind other tour groups, so it actually took about 15 minutes to get into the Uffizi and get organised to begin the tour, rather than walking straight in.

Provence Sightseeing Tour: Marseille and Cassis Calanques Cruise

Marseille, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

One of the best tours we've been on. Great tour guide. Coverage was really good, especially being taken up to the church with the view over Marseille and down to the fishing village at the end of the road (very scenic). Guide also deviated to show one of the people something they particularly requested, but didn't make the tour run late or miss anything out. Well worth doing!

Monaco and Eze Small Group Half-Day Trip from Nice

Nice, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

No-one else had booked so we had a private tour. Guide really good. We enjoyed the visit to Eze more than expected, a fascinating medieval village with a great view from the top (though we had to pay extra to go up to the top). Monaco well worth visiting. Not really enough time in Monaco (one hour near the palace, not time to go inside it or visit the Oceanographic Museum), but that's what happens with half-day tours. Was disappointed that we couldn't go in the cathedral because there was a wedding on, next time we won't go on a Saturday! Had the impression we would return to Nice on the lower coastal road but actually went back on the same road. But the guide kindly dropped us off near the coast of Nice instead of back at our hotel. Altogether a very good trip.

Ferry to St Tropez from Cannes

Cannes, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Had a glorious day for this boat trip and the coastal scenery was fantastic. Boat very busy and did not think it was a well-designed boat for the crowd, in that the seats on the top deck went right up to the rails and there were only very limited places you could stand to get photos of the coast if you didn't happen to get a seat by the rail on that side of the boat. I've been on other crowded boats where you could move around better to get the photos you want. St Tropez worth the visit although we were surprised to find ourselves with almost too much time on our hands since there were only limited activities within walking distance of the quay and we didn't want to spend the lovely day in a museum.

Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Enjoyed this tour very much. Did it in order to see Liechtenstein but the highlight ended up being the Heidi house, which was more authentic than expected. Also enjoyed the other stops and tours included. The tour guide was very particular about everyone being on time, so we dutifully got back to the bus on time after the Heidi house to find it was still locked and the bus driver nowhere in sight. Because of this, some people in the group went away to get ice creams and ended up being quite late back, though only a few minutes later than the driver himself. The tour guide then gave everyone a lecture about how we should be punctual, even though it was the last stop of the day, which I thought a bit unfair.

Vienna Woods and Mayerling Half Day Trip

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very interesting and a good combination of activities. Thought the guide did very well giving his commentary in 5 different languages - we didn't mind it not being just in English. The mine was a highlight and we were surprised the tour description didn't explain what this was except to mention a subterranean boat ride. There seemed to be a mix-up with our hotel pick-up as we were told to wait in the lobby and we waited 15 minutes and no-one came, then the receptionist called the company and we were now told to wait outside.
