Trip is long but worth it. Beautiful place. They picked us up at hotel on time. Only complains the lady guide for Portuguese and Spanish decided to seat on the upper deck behind me and was doing her tour description out loud while I was trying to listen to the English tourist guide. I suggest she seat around her group to avoid interrupting others. Another thing, upon arrival to Paris, the tour guide sent us to the wrong place to catch our transportation back to hotel and ended up paying $20 for a taxi ride. We also saw other people who were in the tour lost trying to find the transportation. I suggest better coordination and knowledge between the guides and the tour company.
My husband and I took this trip and we loved it. The tour guide of the trip as well as the one in Genoa were both very good and informatively. The stop for lunch in Santa Margherite was very nice. Restaurants have very good food and prices. I liked Santa Margherite much better than Portofino. Try the pasta with pesto and the local Pinot Grigio.
This trip should be revised. Everyone in the whole group concur that stay in Orvieto and the stop for lunch at the ecological place are totally useless when there is so much to see in Assisi. Orvieto's stop should only be 20 minutes, there is nothing to do there and the only thing to see is the cathedral. The ecological restaurant, there is no use to have lunch there....too much time wasted there. Lunch should be on your own in Assisi where this tour should spend at least four hours. Assisi is a beautiful place with lots to see. the tour guide in Assisi was fantastic explaining the history of the place and trying to help everyone. Regarding the tour guide from Rome, she was hard to understand in English and spent most of the time with one Dutch couple sitting close to her. Regarding the driver, he had his son with him of about 9 years old who sat in the front seat where the guide should have sat. Father and son spent the whole time talking and playing and I was afraid the driver was not putting enough attention to his driving, I love Viator and was disappointed with this tour, except from the time we stay in Assisi.
London, United Kingdom
Loved the tour. I wish there had been more time allocated for Windsor Castle. Maybe taking 15 mins from Bath and adding it to Windsor Castle stop will make it. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable.
I definitely recommend this tour and will use Viator as my preferred tour company. From the online reservation to the culmination of the tour we were very pleased.
