Shared Departure Transfer: Rome Hotels to Fiumicino Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Although the driver was extremely nice and got me to the airport quickly, I was the only passenger on the shuttle which made the extremely long pickup time prior to my flight somewhat excessive. I was picked up at 7:15 (actually 7:00) for a 11:20 flight. We arrived at the airport slightly before 8:00.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent guide with good knowledge of historical areas of interest. Tour provides an insight into the major areas of the Vatican but should be supplemented with additional visit after the tour has concluded.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour has changed from previously. I think that probably because of the closing of the Trevi Fountain it no longer takes you through some of the former areas including the Pantheon and that area of Rome. It did, however, compensate by taking the group up on the Palatine Hill which was extremely interesting but kind of a hike if you are not used to an uphill trek. In summary, my only complaint about the revised tour is that the group did not have as extensive a tour of the Forum as previously. I would note that the guide was extremely professional and knowledgeable.

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

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Basilica de San Marco was closed so operator offered a thirty percent discount on the remainder of tour. This was basically a walk from the Rialto to the area in front of the Basilica - not worth even the remainder of the money paid. The guide appeared knowledgeable but had a hard time attempting to stretch out a half hour walk to fill the extra time.

Also had an issue with getting the complete refund but Viator got it straightened out - excellent customer service.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Waste of time and money. Short drive through Naples with limited photography opportunities and no historical information. Pompeii visit good for the most part but rushed. More time spent on stops to sell goods than on the tour. Bus very uncomfortable.

Don't waste your money - there are better alternatives.

Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about Roman and Italian history. Would have liked if tour was longer in Colosseum and Forum. Would recommend for anyone visiting Rome.
