Tour/Activity

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

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

My Review
It seemed quite a bit shorter than the time mentioned in the description - in fact the tour guide couldn't wait to get rid of us. The tour itself was about an hour; the other hour was walking to the museum and trying to get the microphone system to work. There wasn't any line to get in, so it really seemed like significant money for a 1 hour speed walk.

Romantic Horse and Carriage Ride through Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We had the upgrade with the champagne. It was very nice and very romantic. They stop in two places to take photos in the carriage, and we asked to have our photo taken kissing with the Eiffel Tower in the background. It is a treasured photo!

Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise on the Seine

Paris, France

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

My Review
The hotel pickup and drop off was wonderful. We paid more to have a table for two near the front, but it was quite noisy and not very romantic. The smaller tables were packed pretty close together, and the nearby rowdy round table of 8 business men in the very front greatly detracted from the "romantic" air. They have the tables set up so you have to sit across from your sweetie. It would have been much nicer if the chairs and tables could have accommodated couples sitting next to each other. The food was not worth the upgrade. I might go on this cruise again but wouldn't plan on it being the romantic cruise it was made out to be. I also wouldn't pay for an upgrade - it isn't worth it.

Normandy Beaches Half-Day Trip from Bayeux

Bayeux, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This was a great tour which lasted the perfect amount of time. The only confusing thing was in the confirmation we were told we couldn't be picked up at the train station and had to find our way to Pointe de Quebec. After finding a map and walking down there, imagine my surprise when the minivan came to pick us up then went to the train station to pick up the other two pairs in our party.

Roman Gladiator School: Learn How to Become a Gladiator

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I did this for my significant other who is into gladiators - and it was great. I think the teacher is really looking forward to his new school location and I think it will be even better once the school has moved since it will be quieter and more "natural." This is a great tour! A lot of fun!!

Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour of Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Our guide was very good. He is so dramatic as he tells you the stories of the great "killers" of Rome. Not really "scary" per se but fun!

Tour/Activity

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Great! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She understood the art and its significance. The pacing was right on target! We paid for the upgrade to get in before everyone else, and I can't stress how wonderful that was!! The rooms were not as crowded and we could move through faster. We couldn't have been more pleased - I would recommend for everyone.

Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

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

My Review
We wouldn't do this again. None of the places allow pictures with flash or without. Also, the Caspian crypt that we were really interested in was within a half mile of our hotel and only costs 1 euro. It wasn't what we expected.

My Rating

My Review
We did this as our first tour when we got into Rome - it covered all the important things and was great! I recommended to everyone. You end at the Colosseum so you can spend as much extra time there as you like!
