Papal Audience Tickets and Presentation

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Although tickets for a Papal Audience are free, we were glad we paid the small fee for these tickets and the tour. Sved, our guide was terrific, he prepped us for what would happen when the guards opened the gates, and then he helped us literally run to get good seats! We had to wait about 2.5 hrs. for Pope Francesco to arrive and during the wait, Sved provided us with a history of the Vatican, some of the prior popes and and St. Peter. It was very educational, enjoyable and I would highly recommend this tour.

Florence Super Saver: Best of Florence Walking Tour, Accademia Gallery, Uffizi Gallery and Florence Duomo

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour; we learned so much about art from our tour guides Valentina in the morning and Costanza in the afternoon. Costanza was especially knowledgable about the different artists and was able to help us interpret many of the paintings and sculptures that we saw along the way. This tour covers it all: the Uffizi, the Duomo and the Accademia Gallery. We had a break for lunch and had lunch at Signoria Square at an outdoor pizzeria. An absolutely perfect day!

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Very disappointing tour all around. The tour was supposed to be with an English speaking guide. Instead, a woman who spoke English very very fast, alternated with some English, then some Italian, speaking, or should I say reciting, very very fast. She was not enjoyable to listen to. BEWARE in Murano!! You will be herded like cattle into a 'glass blowing demonstration' that is attached to an exclusive museum/art gallery/
"this plate is only $2400 euros and we will ship and insure for you for another $500." You are only allowed to enter in one direction and exit in another. When we tried to exit, we were chased down by another salesman, trying to get us back into the 'museum' to buy something. Very uncomfortable and not enjoyable at all. Time on Burano was short, but ok. Torcello was actually beautiful with many beautiful artifacts and gardens. This was our favorite island .You will likely have a more enjoyabl etime if you tour these islands on your own. Many of the hotels in Venice offer free water taxi shuttles to Murano

Milan Half-Day Sightseeing Tour with da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour! Valentina was wonderful! She was knowledgable about the city and the tour was so educational. We visited teh Duomo which was breathtaking inside and out, viewed the original Last Supper painting which was mind blowing and her description of the component of the paintings was a wonderful learning experience. We also toured the Galleria and the Castle which was huge and got to see so much of the city. Highly recommend!
