Hidden Venice Half-Day Walking Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

As we started we were told that it would be a 2-hour tour (supposed to be half-day!). The first 45 minutes was excellent, walking through tiny back streets and learning about living away from the tourist areas. Then we spent 1 hour in a church - interesting but far too long and not "hidden" Venice. The tour finished at the church, having taken only 1 hour and 45 minutes. We were disappointed.

Small-Group Tour: Best of Venice Walking Tour and Grand Canal Water Taxi Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great tour. The first hour was with a guide in a water taxi and was very interesting. The second hour was with a different guide around St Mark's Square and inside the beautiful Basilica. The third hour was a fascinating walk through the wonderful, narrow alleys of the relatively quiet eastern part of Venice, finishing near the Fish Market and Rialto Bridge.

Venice Shared Arrival Transfer: Marittima Cruise Port to Central Venice

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Finding and boarding the water taxi took awhile but we accepted that as we had not arranged a specific time. The taxi took us to a point on the Grand Canal and left us to find our own way. We are both in our mid-sixties and relatively fit, active people so navigating and carting two 23 kg suit cases and 2 carry-on bags over several bridges with many steps for 15 minutes was ok but we later discovered that taxis can and do travel through smaller canals right to the door of out hotel. We would recommend using a more direct service.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Skipping the line at the Vatican is worthwhile. The Museums that we saw were mainly art galleries and it seems that the main Museum is a separate tour or available on another ticket. We did get a good look at the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica so we were satisfied. We are relatively fit so we were able to walk to the other attractions of Rome but some might find it strange being left to find your own way from the Vatican.

Illuminated Rome Night Tour with Aperitivo

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great tour. Good guide, started with a light meal and a chance to meet other tourists. Very interesting walk through some of the streets and attractions of Rome. An interesting drive by coach to the Vatican and a high vantage point with a good view of the lights of Rome, concluding at the Colosseum.

Rome Food Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great tour and one of the highlights of several weeks in Italy. Our guide was very good. A big breakfast before the tour is not necessary as we were given the chance to sample about a dozen local dishes during the tour, plus lunch and a couple of glasses of wine - and they were all wonderful. We are quite fit in our mid-60's and had no trouble with walking - but one person in a wheel chair found the lack of ramps at intersections to be very difficult.

Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great tour. This was our first day in Rome and this tour was a very good introduction. Skipping the line is worthwhile and to see the "underground" chambers made the tour adds a different perspective to just wandering around the stadium.
