Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este Half-Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a useful and interesting half day tour. There is not a lot to see at Hadrian's Villa so you have to se your imagination a fair bit to see what it might have been like in the second century. Villa D'Este is more preserved, being much more recent. The waterfalls and pools are the highlights. Be aware of the steep climb back up from the gardens. If you have difficulty walking, it could be a challenge. Our tour was a bilingual one (French and English) which meant waiting around sometimes to hear the English description whilst the French speaking tourists had a good opportunity to take photos, which did not always occur for the English speaking members of the tour. The tour guide was not that good at giving meeting directions nor ensuring everyone was following, so there was missing tour members or confusion on. Few occasions.

Ancient Ostia Half-Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a very interesting and informative tour. There is quite a lot of the ancient Roman city left to view and our guide, Giovani ( If I recall correctly) appeared to be very knowledgeable and interested in passing on his knowledge. The tour is a little challenging on a hot sunny day, and you need to wear comfortable shoes. The only criticism is that a little free time to wonder around and take any photos you missed during the guided tour, would be useful.

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a great tour and well worth the money. It is a full day with a return to Florence after 8pm. It is quite a good balance of guided tour and free time (especially in San Gimignano and Pisa) and Siena is such a beautiful town. The tour is operated by a young tour company (Walkabout Tours) and our tour guide, Agata was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, interested, organised and efficient. The only minor criticism is that there is such a lot to cover in one day some locations are possibly cut a little short (especially at Siena. However, overall this is an excellent tour and I highly recommend it to all.

Danube Valley Day Trip from Vienna

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a very good tour, both relaxing and interesting. The valley is a beautiful location, and the cruise allows you to see this in a comfortable way. Lunch is not provided but the restaurant outside Melk Abbey provides very nice and good value food, served by friendly and efficient staff. The highlight however has to be the tour of the Abbey, especially the library and the church.

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very good tour to a beautiful town. The views from the castle are postcard perfect, and the guided tour of the castle is interesting and enjoyable. The mix of guided tour and free time is good. There is no lunch provided but there are ample locations to buy lunch at reasonable prices. You will regret it if you miss this lovely town.
