Great tour just wish the Italians would turn up the air conditioning. If you're American, I recommend buying a hand held fan and taking a towel to wipe your sweat. The guides were great nonetheless.

Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A must see landmark if you're anywhere in the vicinity. Our guide was fantastic and we had free time to have lunch at a sidewalk cafe in the shadow of the Leaning Tower. Just recommend having an umbrella, hand held fan and towel to wipe your sweat if you're going during summer months. It gets really hot.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Watching the glass blowing was incredibly hot. You're practically in the oven with the glass. Don't get off the boat in Torcello. There's nothing to see and it's super hot during summer months. Burano was absolutely beautiful. Get your cameras ready and the lace shops were much more interesting then we expected. This trip only loses a fifth star because of the waste of time on Torcello.

Fabulous tour and a must when in Venice. It's why you're going there. The guide was fantastic and all Viator tours use ear pieces so you can clearly hear the descriptions of what you're seeing.

Interesting tour but not a must. Only do if you have plenty of time, which we had so it was worth the time.
