Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Nice half day tour of Pisa. Includes about 45 minute walking tour around Pisa and then free time. Pisa itself is beautiful but but crowded with tourists and they charge to get into every building, cemetery except for the cathedral. You have to make reservation to climb leaning tower and it costs 18 Euros. This tour is a nice way to see Pisa though.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Good tour. Vatican is sensational but April starts peak season and this was the most crowded place I have ever visited. It was difficult to not lose our guide even with her umbrella held high as there are multiple tour groups in every area of the museum. But the Vatican is a must see and this tour is an excellent way to see the Vatican Museum and St Peters.

Florence Half-Day or Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour started with a bus ride the ancient town of Fiesole that overlooks Florence. It was a beautiful and interesting ride, but we never stopped at any spots to get out and take pictures other than through the bus window, most of the time moving. Also my son and I had difficulty identifying many of the sites our guide was describing. The next part of tour was an interesting walking tour in central Florence. The largest part of the tour was at the tour of the great art museum the Uffizi Gallery in a beautiful palace. Our guide was a long time British expat with a great knowledge and passion for the great works of art in this museum, and for me many of her stories were fascinating and she made the paintings very interesting. I think it was too much art for much of the tour group, but if you have an appreciation for great art, I think you should request our guide--think her name was Rosalind.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a good tour with a good tour guide of Naples and Pompey. We also saw from the highway some interesting sites like the Monte Casino Monastery and other interesting towns. Naples does not take much time to see the highlights and the two hours in Pompeii, we all agreed was about right. Very interesting, but all we talked to thought that with a good guide, two hours was about right.
I have only one gripe and that is the tour company's original bus from Rome had no legroom for normal sized males. I noticed that with all the couples, the man ended up moving to the aisle seat so he could put his legs in the aisle. Very uncomfortable. Our bus broke down (which happens) and the one out of Naples that replaced our bus was much more comfortable, but that original bus out of Rome was the most uncomfortable tour bus we were on in Italy. Otherwise this makes a great side trip from Rome.

Imperial Istanbul Half-day Tour: Hagia Sophia, Basillica Cistern and Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Review

I would recommend the full day tour, but we only had a half day available. Good tour guide and interesting tour. Suggest you copy what is on tour (its not on the voucher), as our tour guide would have left out the Roman Cisterns (which was a highlight), if I had not reminded her.
