Florence Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

Having had nothing but great experiences with the tours i've booked through Viator I was a little dissapointed with the Florence trip - the day itself was around 13hours, but only 2 hours of this were we actually on a tour - we arrived in Florence and were given an hours 'free time' which essentially involved waiting for the tour guide outside a leather shop before going to lunch - the lunch was nice but felt like another 1 hour 1/2 wasted before the guided tour started. We were in a group of about 30 people, and despite it being an English tour, had a group of half a dozen spanish speaking tourists which meant we were standing around a lot while everything had to be repeated and gave the feeling that you were potentially missing out on things. Florence though was nice with some beautiful buildings but I feel we would have enjoyed it more with a better tour guide both on the coach and when in Florence.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Brilliant tour - an absolute must for anyone travelling to Rome. There is so much to see at the Vatican, if you tried to do it on your own, you'd be lost for days, but with the really enthusiastic guide you get to see everything that matters, skip the long queues outside and get a really enjoyable tour. The buildings and artwork are stunning and being able to listen to the guide through the personalised headsets make it so easy to walk through and admire everything while being able to stop and take pictures without missing a step - probably the best tour we did there!

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We booked this tour for the first day of our trip to Rome and was a great way to start! The meeting instructions were clear and easy to follow and the tour was very professionally run - the personal headsets are a great idea when in such a busy area. The Colossem itself was stunning - from the moment you walk out of the Metro station. The tour guide was really enthusiastic and informative and you could tell enjoyed what she was doing. The tour also takes in the palatine hill and forum areas so it covers a good amount of ground but with the commentary and skip the line entry - definitley the best way to do it!

Cage Diving with Great White Sharks from Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Amazing experience - we booked the tour without really knowing what to expect but were blown away by the whole experience. We were staying out of town but the staff were really helpful making sure we were able to find a convenient meeting point for the minibus. Its a long drive out to the bay but the scenery is stunning so adds to the experience. When we arrived at Marine Dynamics we were instantly impressed with the set up. From the initial briefing we knew it was going to be a great experience, the guides were all very knowledgeable and endering and presented the conservation aspect of the bay and the sharks very well. On walking down to the dock we saw we were on the best tour as they had by far the best boat for the trip - when we got to the viewing site we split into groups, 8 at a time to go in the cage for 20/30mins - we were in the last group so got to sit back and watch while taking on the snacks and refreshments and just seeing the sharks from above the water was impressive but nothing compared to when we got down there! We came litterally face to face with half a dozen sharks, teeth and all - i have to say it was definitley one to tick off the bucket list - i would recommend to anyone - no experience like it and the tour company were supurb and really made the day

Bruges Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent trip, well organised and comfortable transport. Guide was knowledgeable and informative. Only spent 3-4 hours in Bruges which was enough to see the main sites. Get some chocolate and whaffles but still leaves enough to do if you choose to go back another time.
