Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a wonderful trip around Tuscany for the day. The weather was questionable, but that didn't dampen the spirits of our small group of 9. Our tour guide Sandra and driver Sergio took great care of us as we travelled through the beautiful towns of Sienna and San Giamnano (sp?). Sandra was very knowledgable and regaled us with great stories to deepen our understanding of both what we were seeing, as well as general tips on the Italian language and culture. We climbed the tower at Pisa and enjoyed doing so. The lunch at the organic farm was delicious with plentiful nice wines to try. I am sure the view and environment here would have been even better should it not have been raining. A great day was had by us (two teenagers included). I highly recommend this trip.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour suited our purposes as we were not art experts, and needed to be introduced to the wonder that these galleries both offered. We had a different guide at each gallery and had a 4 hour interval in between tours where we went and explored on our we an and had our own lunch. Both our guides were very knowledgable and answered questions confidently throughout. We we shown the highlights at both museums, and had the chance to stay longer to look further if we wished. I am happy to say that we all came out with a healthy respect for what we saw, and a deeper understanding of the backgrounds and meanings behind the artworks. This was an enjoyable tour.

Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a highlight of our trip. Myself and two teenagers joined a group of 5 other people to cook up a storm with Alessandro. What a fantastic evening was had by all! Our group was a fun bunch of people, and we learnt some useful skills whilst having such a great time. Alessandro was very patient and had a great sense of humour. We cooked up an artichoke tart for appetiser, a crepe dish and a turkey dish for mains, and a Creme brûlée type dessert. The cooking session finished with us all settling in to dinner and tasting our concoctions surrounded by good people and good wines. If you want a fantastic evening of entertainment, then this is for you. Great fun!

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a great day we had touring to Pompeii. Our tour guide Sarah was brilliant. She had funny story after funny story which helped us learn about the history of the area we we visiting, but also gave us great insight into the Italian way of life. Sarah was ably assisted by our driver Francesco. The bus was extremely comfortable, and although we travelled a great distance, the time flew by quickly. We had a specialist tour guide in Pompeii (Georgio) who was very knowledgable and really brought Pompeii to life for us. We stopped in Naples for a delicious pizza lunch (rated best we have had so far in Italy by my two teenagers). Due to being Winter, we stopped at the Vesuvius museum rather than climbed Vesuvius, which was a great experience too.It was a long day but well worth it. I highly recommend this tour.
