My Review

This was an excellent experience as we had the time to really explore the Gallery and the gardens. Our guide, Rebecca, was so knowledgeable and helpful. Being an Art History major made her extremely passionate about the many wonderful paintings and sculptors. The was best tour we took in Rome !!

My Review

My wife and I were simply in awe of the many sights to see on this tour. Of course, three hours is hardly enough time to take in the wonderful works of art. It is a shame, but a fact of life, that we could only spend 10 minutes in the Sistine Chapel.

Illuminated Rome Night Tour with Aperitivo

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour shows off some of Rome's most beautiful sights at night. We had a full moon during the walk and our guide did not rush us past the most memorable places such as the beautiful fountains and the Pantheon. The Pantheon was the most intriguing sight and should be visited during the day when one can tour this wonderfully preserved piece of ancient history.

My Review

This tour was very informative as the guide was very helpful in explaining the many ruins included on the tour. My one concern is that the guide moved too quickly for some in the group and they were unable to maintain the pace. There are many steps and uphill climbs involved so that needs to be highlighted in the description of the tour.

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was our most anticipated tour as my wife and I have always wanted to see Pompeii. The morning experience with the guided tour was informative and done at a very enjoyable pace.Of course, two hours in Pompeii is much too short. From there, the experience went down hill quickly. Lunch was terrible and the two women guides as well as the bus driver sat at a separate table away from the rest of us. I am quite sure they did not have the same lunch. After lunch, the mountain was bathed in clouds as the park had been closed in the morning. Instead of making the decision to visit the Pompeii museum in Naples, our two guides chose to make the drive and the trek up the mountain even though there was no visibility and a constant damp mist. The hike to the crater was about 20 minutes on a steep and slippery path. Several folks, not in our group, had to be taken by ambulance down the mountain because of sprained knees and ankles. Not a very enjoyable afternoon experience.
