Skip the Line: Best of Venice Walking Tour including Basilica di San Marco

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

so, so. My one less than stellar experience with Dark Rome. The walking tour felt rushed, and was not as interesting as Venice itself. There were serious audio problems as well with the equipment. The guide tried, but this one was not a success. I wish we went to the food market or had time to actually look into one of the lovely churches. Also, it was just around San Marco. The tour of the Basilica was great, however, as is the Basilica, well worth it

Small-Group Italian Cooking Class in Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was great. Giovanni was most warm personable and knowledgeable. My boys and I had a wonderful time and learned a fair amount about the Tuscan food. This is not a high end class, but was a serious course none the less. The crew knows their stuff, the cooking school was a small intimate space but everyone had room to work. The meal we made was delicious (and gave my boys some ideas for what to do on a date, they said). Their place is air conditioned, a real plus in July. And we got cookbooks in the end. These guys really communicate their enthusiasm and love for the food. A great change of pace from the art hunting and much welcomed by my teens (kids of all ages were there, and Giovanni was made a personal connection with everyone in our group). The market visit before hand was wonderful as well. Highly recommended as a memorable and fun family or couples experience. Note, this is a "slow food" experience and it stretched out, wonderfully, across most of the day. We did get to a museum at 4, but it felt like a great and memorable use of a day in Florence. Highly recommended.

Private Tour: Chianti Region Wine Tasting

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Outstanding experience. My boys loved meeting Alexandro and being taken around by him. He showed us breathtaking country side, took us to a terrific winery and also to meet folks he knew who made wine and balsamic vinegar. The whole day was one sumptuous feast, and he let it develop as it did. We spent more time in one place and so we adjusted the itinerary. It was a warm memorable introduction to the Chianti region.

Papal Audience Tickets and Presentation

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Tiffany was wonderful, personable and knowledgeable. My boys and I enjoyed her presentation before the Papal Audience so much that we upgraded our Vatican Museum tickets that afternoon so that we could take the tour with her, which was also great. She was wonderful and helped us get the most out of both experiences.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Giovanni was great. An Italian Archeology student, what could be better? He had wonderful "Italian" attitude and helped us learn about and enjoy Ancient Rome. Hint: Go on the afternoon tour, and when it is over, just put your feet up and take it all in and think back on what you have learned, sit back and watch the sun go down until they ask you to leave.
