Paris Food Walking Tour: Gourmet French Food

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Unfortunately my guide was an hour late, which was pretty annoying given the fact that finding the meeting point in the Latin Quarter was challenging for a first time visitor to Paris. I wasn't particularly happy about using my phone to track down the guide, so the tour started on a sour note. On the plus side, 1. There were only 5 in our group, 2. The places visited were interesting and ones I would not have found on my own, and 3. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I liked the tour as it was something different from the norm but it is definitely overpriced and the company seems disorganised.

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great way to see the sites of Paris. I'd definitely recommend the 2 day option. Another company only offers 1 route, rather than 4, so choose wisely. The only downside was that it was sometimes hard to find the bus stops - even with a map.

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A lot was packed into the morning session. Marina, our guide was very knowledgeable. I wish I had known you can't take backpacks into the Museum before the day trip as I could easily have had a small bag instead. It was quite a long walk at end of tour to retrieve my bag and this wasted time. I travelled on my own and lost the group in the crowd. It was disappointing that the guide was more concerned about the Whisper system being lost.

The afternoon tour really complimented the morning tour. Rachel, the tour guide was very animated and knowledgeable. It's a shame that she made a less than subtle hint about receiving a tip.

Assisi Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a lovely day trip, away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. The views were spectacular. The time spent in Assisi was a little rushed in the sense that there was very little time to do your own thing, except 1O minutes to shop and time for a restroom stop. The opposite occurred in Orvietto. The guide was knowledgeable but didn't really chat with passengers except when giving hints about a tip!

Skip the Line: Vatican in One Day

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I enjoyed my tour of the Vatican as the guides (for both morning and afternoon sessions) were very knowledgeable. I was particularly impressed with the manner in which the morning guide managed to keep the group on track (i.e., she was not sidetracked by individual questions) as there was so much to be seen. Both guides gave less than subtle hints about giving a tip, which I think was disappointing. A tip for future travellers (one I wish I had known beforehand) is that backpacks could not be taken into the Vatican. The walk back to collect them is about 1km; this takes away from the time that can be spent exploring before the next session. The queues into the Vatican were long, so the Skip the Line option was a good one!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A very enjoyable afternoon. The 4-wheel driving was scary at times though. The camel ride was very short; other entertainment was great!
