My Review

Loved it; only thing is I would've preferred more time to look around. I wasn't able to bring back as much cheese as I would've liked but the samples were amazing. The views are spectacular

Livorno Shore Excursion: Pisa and Florence Private Day Trip

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our driver Stefano was AWESOME! I highly recommend this tour, we had a group of 12, but he drives for smaller groups too. He answered all of our questions and got us to where we needed to be by the times we needed to be there. Flavia was our personal guide for 3 hours and she was wealthy with information and history, she was very patient answering our questions and made sure we knew where to meet the driver before leaving us. A+++ for this tour company. I will use them again if I come back to the area. Much less expensive compared to similar tours offered by the cruise ship we took. Being able to go in a small intimate group is amazing and we're all spoiled now.

Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Amazing! Skipping the line to get into the Vatican was wonderful it is very busy. David was our guide for the 6 hours we were actually in Rome. It was not a private tour but much better than the large bus tours the cruise ships throw you on with 50+ of your closest friends. My only complaint would be that the driver doesn't speak any english and won't give you any extra time for shopping. The tour could easily have been at least an hour longer. So much to see and so little time. David was wonderful and spoke English well so he was very easy to understand. Perfect excursion for Rome.

Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Gondola Ride was fun gets the 3 stars. Had to be in boat with 6 people. Usually can't sit by your loved one because of balancing issues. The tour is a big 0 stars from me. The tour company is unprepared for large crowds and it wastes time trying to get set up. We arrived 20 minutes prior and they say just stand outside someone will be out momentarily. We then stood around waiting till "start" time. They wrestled getting the head sets to work and then there were too many people so they spilt the groups. Still really couldn't hear/understand our guide. She went on to tell us information about the New shops or renovations. She spent very little time telling us history or anything of value. She was rude when we told her we wanted to leave the tour. I felt like customer service isn't the tour company's best interest. When we got to the dock of the gondola ride we seen another couple from our tour and they had left saying she never got any better, which is sad because Venice is a beautiful place with a lot of history.
