After very disappointing experiences with the Appian Line on tours, we were somewhat nervous about taking the Green Line tour, however we were pleasantly surprised. The bus didn't break down (as it did on the Appian Line), the tour guide was professional, knowledgeable and engaging, and all that was promised was delivered.
The tour guide Luca was excellent. He was knowledgeable, personable and inclusive, delivering intelligent commentary and encouraging the group to ask questions. Because of the inaccessibility of one of the towns, he added a bonus trip to Lucca, which was an excellent finish to a memorable day.
There were four English speakers and two Portuguese speakers on this tour and the tour guide allowed the Portuguese to dominate the conversation to the exclusion of others. One would have thought that with four people speaking English the guide would have suggested the Portuguese use the audio guide in their language, but he chose to do the opposite, leaving four of us to our own devices.
He was an hour late turning up to collect us and and hour and a half late delivering us back to our hotel, compromising other arrangements we had made for the evening.
Whistle-stop tour made enjoyable and interesting by our excellent tour guide. The lunch on the Seine was of a high standard that included professional entertainment. The Louvre tour was targeted to iconic items of the collection including the Mona Lisa. We thought this tour offered good value for money and is best done at the start of a Paris visit as a means of getting one's bearing and choosing which attractions to visit in more depth later.
Very useful to gain a broad overview of what Milan has to offer. Early season schedule does not have enough buses on the run, and so long waits can be expected at the pick-up points. Would pay to investigate if the timetable is more frequent during the high season before committing.
