Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was our final tour of a two week vacation and it was the perfect way to end it. My family of 7 was able to relax and enjoy their final hours of vacation and Venice while being serenaded and floated down the canals of this beautiful city. We will never forget it.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello were fascinating. Each one unique but also very similar. The only complaint of this tour was the transport boat used was extremely hot and the time on each island was not very long.

My Review

What a great trip! The transportation was more than adequate and appreciated. The church was stunning and the shopping was plentiful. Well worth a half-day out of your time in Florence.

Florence Half-Day or Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

What a trip. So much seen and in a short time although we didn't feel rushed at all. There was a lot of walking but it wasn't hard or too fast-paced. The only criticisms were the timing of seeing the Ponte Vecchio (unable to get good pics due to the sun) and not knowing we would not be able to take pics in the museum (specifically of David). Other than that, the tour was great!

Messina Shore Excursion: Messina City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Messina, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A great way to see so much in a short amount of time. However, the shopping was not worth it. Stick to line A and don't worry about missing anything from line B.

Santorini Shore Excursion: Private Tour of Oia, Fira and the Akrotiri Excavation

Santorini, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Fantastic! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. The sights were stunning. However, be prepared to pay to get into the Akrotiri excavation. It is not included in the cost and caught us by surprise, but it is well worth it.

Kusadasi Shore Excursion: Private Tour to Ephesus including Basilica of St John and Temple of Artemis

Kusadasi, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The best tour of our 2 week family vacation. There was so much to see and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. He not only pointed out the sights, but gave us the background, the political history and cultural reference to fully understand both the ancient and current life in Ephesus.

Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a great overview of this ancient city. Our guide was very knowledgeable. It was a little fast-paced with a lot of walking, but there was/is so much to see. The headsets were the best part. It allowed everyone in the group to hear the guide no matter how far away they were. This freed us up to stop and take pics along the way without missing any of the information and then catch up. The only criticism was that the tour ended someplace other than where it began and not being from that city, we had no idea how to get back to where we started. I recommend if time permits that you take a full day to be able to see all the ancient sights without feeling rushed.
