Mauna Kea Summit and Stars Small Group Adventure Tour

Kona, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This star-gazing tour was a highlight of our trip to the Big Island. Greg, our guide, was like an encyclopedia with his knowledge of the sky and the stars. It was a long day and we were really tired at the end, but it was one of those once in a lifetime experiences which we'll never forget. Thanks Hawaii Forest and Trail; a great time.

Na Pali Kauai Sunset Cruise

Kauai, Hawaii

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A great tour. The swell made the boat quite rocky. Don't go out if you think you may be seasick because you will. There was a lot of beautiful scenery though which we would have missed had we not gone out on this tour.

Private Kauai Learn to Surf Lesson

Kauai, Hawaii

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had an excellent surfing lesson with a young instructor named Evan. Having had one lesson already with another company (we were somewhat unhappy) we were amazed at how technically astute Evan was, and how patient he was getting us up on the surfboards. There was just the right amount of on-shore instruction, then plenty of time out in the water. The beach town of Hanelei was beautiful and serene, making this one of the most perfect days of our vacation. We could not have been happier! And we surfed until we couldn't surf any more!

Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery Tickets

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a great tour; we loved having the headsets so we could go at our own pace. The sculptures were stunning. The gallery is large and beautiful but not so large that it's overwhelming. They are very strict about entrance times, so be on time!

Rome Hop-on Hop-off Double Decker Bus Tour

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

We were disappointed with this. It worked only if you were not going very far. One evening we wanted to cross town and the bus took two hours; we could have walked faster. Might be best for a first timer checking out the main sights in Rome. Also, the commentary on the headsets was mediocre.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour, and our guide was really great. She had an archeology background! Our only disappointment was that we didn't get to see the whole thing; we didn't know there were different levels of touring you could buy. Another time we might just buy a headset and do the tour ourselves. However, make sure you always buy the skip the line ticket, whichever way you do this tour because the line ups to get in are huge, and we were there in October!

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

Best tour we had in Rome, Fransesca was extremely knowledgable. One thing we liked was the pacing. We weren't rushed through any of the rooms, and she explained a lot f things about the paintings etc but didn't give too much info. It was perfect. Other people we know who toured the Vatican with other companies, found their guides gave way too much information, and also walked right through places like Raphael's rooms. This tour included everything. Like the Colosseum, you are foolish NOT to buy at least a skip the line ticket; the line ups to get in are astoundingly long, even in a low season such as October when we were there.
