Palma de Mallorca Shore Excursion: Palma de Mallorca City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Mallorca, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Hop on and Hop off tours are such a great way to see the cities. Save your previous Hop-on ticket stubs as they can also be used on other Hop-on tours for a discount. You can see a lot of the famous attractions of the city on these tours. You get the added advantage of getting off where ever you want on top of going back and spending more time at any one site.

Private Tour: Venice Art and Architecture Walking Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

While this is touted as a Art and Architecture tour, it was a wonderfu tour about the city of Venice, it's people and history and how they live. We visited the back streets of Venice and discovered another part of the city that tourist don't see. We avoid many of the busy main streets and alleys and skirted around other large groups and crowds. We walked into many churches and buildings most overlooked and had time to see the architecture of the buildings and what the buildings were used for. We learned a lot about the city and how it was built and the problems it is now facing with higher waters and the sinking of the land. Avoid the large tour groups and join a Viator tour where you can actually hear and talk to the guides and better yet, enjoy more flexibility in the tour ctering more to your interest.

Livorno Shore Excursion: Pisa and Florence Private Day Trip

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our Driver spoke wonderful english and was there at the dock to pick us up for our tour. During our ride to Florence, he pointed out various points of attraction and gave us some background on what we were seeing. Throughout our tour to Florence and Pisa, he mad us very comfortable with where we were, what we were to see and picking us up after sightseeing. Thefirst portion of our tour was the Art Museum. Our driver called ahead for our Museum Art guide to meet us and then handed us off to her. It was a fabulous tour of the Art Museum because she took us to "key" historic paintings and explained who the artist was; the time period of the painting; the style of painting and what was going on during that time period in terms of customs and attitudes. Then she would march us over to another painting and manuver us to the front of the crowds and procede do the same for the next painting and ask us what we saw and our interpretation. It was like getting an Art appreciation college course. The most wonderful thing is - she was our private guide. while other large groups were staining to hear what their guide was saying or trying to find a position to see the paintings over 30 to 40 people, we had only four people in our group. Ann was our guide and she was absolutely wonderfully patient, attentive to our questions and peaked our interest with delightful stories about the painters and the era of the paintings.
