Girona and Costa Brava Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What an excellent day trip. Our guide gave a wonderful presentation, shared a lot of personal experience, and had a great sense of humor. We were given maps and a lot of time to explore on our own which was so appreciated, as we were all well traveled and the Guide had a good read of this. The day was very hot, but the van was clean and cool. The trip was paced well covering the inland sites earlier in the day and then ending with a relaxing swim at a local spot and a delicious lunch on our own. This is a trip for individuals who have generally good mobility, as it involves a fair amount of walking and stairs. After several days at a Conference in Barcelona, this was the therapeutic antidote that made my business trip feel like a spa vacation.

Independent Florence Day Trip from Rome by High-Speed Train

Rome, Italy

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

My Review
I was essentially "catching a ride" on board the bus with people who were actually touring Florence, so we stopped 4 times before entering the city. If I were on a tour it would had been fine, but as a "shuttle" I was expecting a fast ride to the city and then a ride home at night, so I lost a lot of time with all of the stopping. Next time if I want a "shuttle" I will know better to take the train.

Assisi Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The hotel pickup is such a wonderful way to start this incredible tour. We arrived in Orvieto very early so the light was perfect, bending into the charming streets as the shopkeepers swept their storefronts. This Cathedral is jaw-droppingly unique with its two colored stone. You can buy lovely ceramics here and also excellent bronze replicas of Etruscan artifacts at local shops. At Assisi we took a nice walk through the city and I was blown away by what is certainly one of the most amazing man-made structures on Earth. The pale pink and plain Basilica celebrating St. Francis was very moving for me. I was agog at the size and color of Giotto's murals inside and the veritable feast for the eyes. The crypt and the adjoining Chapels below the Basilica are intensely spiritual for many to reflect on a life of selflessness and good works. Our accompanying Guide and the local Guide at Assisi were both so pleasant and accommodating. Our driver delivered us safely near our hotels. It was a beautiful experience.

Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery Tickets

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The Borghese Gallery is so rich in imagery and decor it is like an all you can eat dessert bar! I arrived a half an hour early and met my friendly and punctual Viator rep out in front of the museum to get my ticket. I was happy that I had purchased in advance since the gallery tickets were sold out for the next two weeks! Note that you must have your tickets to check all cameras and bags which is mandatory before entering which I was able to do before the throng arrived, so I found myself second in line. Viewing hours are controlled in 2 hour shifts, so this allowed me to make the most of viewing the rooms.

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Even though we were kind of crammed in the Van, our driver was funny and we sang to some good music. Our Guide at Pompeii was excellent. We had lunch at Chez Blacks in Positano and it was excellent. Since the road to Amalfi was closed that day we went to Sorrento for sunset and some brisk walking. I wished we had a little more time there, but the traffic on the coast is a little tough. Be patient and enjoy the beauty.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Tickets

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a fantastic opportunity to walk through the exhibits at my leisure. I have already been on a few guided tours of the Vatican museum so I knew what I wanted to spend more time on. The Viator rep was waiting at the appointed place, friendly and on time. Getting the tickets in advance allow me to breeze past the lines and get right to touring. It is well worth the money and I wouldn't do it any other way.

Rome Arrival Shuttle Transfer: Airport to Hotel

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
I have used the shuttle 3 years in a row. The operating company is always on time and organized. I prefer this to the train after 2 days of flying from my home in Hawaii.
