My Review

The tour took 14 hours with about 1.5 or 2 hours at Troy. It was well worth it. The minibus was spacious and comfortable. The tour guide to troy picked us up before we boarded the ferry and brought us back to the minibus after the visit in Troy. The tour guide to Troy knew a lot about the dfferent archeological opinions concerning Troy, which was interesting and informative.

The tour did not go to the Grand Bazaar as advertised, but went to a carpet shop instead. Aside from that it had a very knowledgable and nice tour guide. Lunch was very good and they even had a vegetarian option.

The red tour gave a good overview of the city. It stopped at all important places. Unfortunately the sound system did not work that well and sometimes the explanations faded out and could not be heard. So I missed some of the information.

It was a 4 hour costly tour of which 40 minutes were spent in a gift store away from everything else. What a waste of time and money.

My Review

I am glad I booked this tour because I had little time and would not have been able to see all these places on one day by myself. However it was a long day and when in Pisa my energy was at 0. In Siena we had a local tour guide who showed us the city. In San Gemignano we were on our own without any explanation. In Pisa it was a nice surprise to have a chu chu train taking us around town with some explanation from our tour guide after we had plenty of time at the tower of Pisa.
The tour guide was not great. An American Italian who was kind of creepy. His main function was to get people organized and make sure everybody is in and out of the bus. Except for the Chu Chu train ride from Pisa no explanations of any sights. Just briefings on itineraries. We did not leave anybody behind as mentioned in other posts and the tour guide was good on checking names on his list before we left everywhere.
The lunch at the winery provided plenty of wine, spagetti and as a main dish cheese, ham and salami.

The tour guide helped us to find good seats. She termed the process of getting seats the "papal survivor" and I think that described it very well. Once we had seats a long wait started for the audience. I was glad we had booked the tour, because she told us about the history of the papacy and it made the time go by faster. We did see the pope close driving by in his popemobile and were able to take good pictures. I am glad we went, but I would not go a second time.

This a very worthwhile tour. The tour guide was a trained archeologist who made the walls of Hadrians Villa came to live. Never tired of answering questions.
Tivoli gardens were amazing. A fountain whereever you looked and our guide again was very knowledgable.

It was great to see so much in one day. The guide was a trained archeologist and provided great information about the colloseum and Forum Romanum. She was a little week during the afternoon when she showed us baroque area buildings/fountains and the Pantheon
