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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Colosseum was packed the day we went but our guide somehow managed to navigate the crowds and keep us all together. This tour in particular was fascinating, and the guide did a good job bringing it to life as she explained what once took place there and showed us how the various parts of the stadium were used. The visit to the Forum was nice but involved a lot of difficult uphill walking, and the ruins were far more sparse and less interesting. Still, a very good tour and highly recommended.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Tickets

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our guide met us on time and greeted us in a welcoming way. The tour was a lot of walking but well worth it. We went through countless rooms in the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica, yet the guide was knowledgeable and interesting about all of them. If anything, there was too much information to digest! The time of the tour was well managed, as we bypassed all the lines and the crowds. This was as thorough a visit to the Vatican as could be accomplished in a few hours.

Florence Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

This tour was disappointing. After arriving in Florence, we waited quite a while in line to see the statue of David, as even though we had an appointment, the crowd was larger than anticipated. Unfortunately, we saw very little of Florence itself other than a few of the main attractions. Although the tour was supposed to be in English, the guide talked in other languages, which minimized the information we were able to gain. Given the length of the drive from Rome and the time devoted to the tour, we don't feel that we got our money's worth.

Versailles Small-Group Tour from Paris with Audio Guide

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very nice tour. Small group made it fun and allowed for more interaction with the tour guide, who was excellent. Hotel pickup was on time. Tour of the palace and grounds was comprehensive and fascinating. Lunch at the restaurant was delightful. Can't think of much about this tour that needs to be improved.

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A long day but well worth it. Tour covered everything you might want to know about D-Day. First stop at museum was helpful and appropriate. Service was reliable and on time and guide was excellent. My only complaint is stopping at a "convenience store" for "dinner" on the way home with long lines and inferior food choices. But otherwise, highly recommended for those who want to see Normandy for themselves.
