3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a fabulous trip! Our tour guides for Naples, Pompeii and Capri were terrific. They gave us a great deal of useful information including where the best rest rooms were. Our hotel in Sorrento was fabulous! We had a beautiful room and the dining room had a beautiful view of the Bay of Sorrento. This package included breakfast, lunch and dinner for two days which made the price a great value. We recommend this tour.

Panoramic Rome by Night Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour accomplished what was advertised. We went to the Fountain of Trevi, where we were able to spend a little time. Then we drove past the sites described. However, I would recommend sitting on the right side of the bus to get a better view. We also walked around at Piazza Navonne and our guide gave us an interesting discussion on this site. We would recommend picking up the tour at the Carrani Tour location. We were picked up at our hotel which sounds convenient, but we didn't actually get going on our tour for another hour.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a fabulous tour which was run by Walk About Tours. This company was great at coordinating and managing the day. Our guide, Francesca, was excellent. She was knowledgeable and very helpful. Since vacation time is limited we were glad to see so many sites without feeling rushed at any time.

Cinque Terre Hiking Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Probably the best day of our vacation! Our guides, Alex and Freddy, were terrific. The local tour operator was Walk About Tours which did a great job managing the day. We ate in Corniglia and enjoyed the best pesto as well as beautiful views from the restaurant. Our hike gave us the opportunity to view Cinque Terra from different vantage points. We had a great time!

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The walking tour covered a great deal. Also, the Grand Canal tour was excellent. Our guide was Christina who gave us a lot of information about the buildings lining the Canal as well as the sections of the island. Even though it was raining, we had a great time!

Venice Tour Including Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Our guide brought very interesting facts about Venice to this tour. However, my husband and I decided to spring for the "private" gondola ride which was a waste of money. Our private ride meant that we were the only passengers in our gondola which was part of a caravan of gondolas going through the canals. The gondoliers were having there own conversations while we took our trip. If you want to splurge on a private ride, there are plenty of gondoliers who would be happy to help.

Lake Como Day Trip from Milan

Milan, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The description of this tour included the words "two hour cruise up Lake Como." Well, the cruise was on a boat which was part of the public transportation of Como and other towns along the lake. This wouldn't have been a problem but there were about 100(no exaggeration) school children, about twelve years old, taking our "cruise" with us. Although there may have been no ability to predict this, the children were yelling and running wild on the boat. I was wondering if they had any supervision what so ever. They finally got off the boat at the town prior to Bellagio so although the views were beautiful (when the kids were not running in front of us), the last thing I would call this was a "relaxing cruise." We only had 15 minutes of quiet before getting off the boat. This certainly took away from the experience.
