Small-Group Insider Food Tour of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Guide was knowledegable and very enthusiastic. First stop included an incredible house made chorizo. Second for a great empanada. Next stop was a small 'secret' restaurant in one of the neighborhoods that doesn't serve tourists, only locals, and had a fabulous steak lunch. And we rounded it out with excellent gelato.

Buenos Aires Dining Experience: Empanada Making, Steak, Wine, Alfajores and Mate

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a great night! Met all of our expectations and then exceeded them. We also enrolled in the pre dinner activity which included the wine cocktail mixology - canot wait to try some of the wine cocktails at home. At dinner there was lots of energy and conversation - especially during the empanada making competition. The staff was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and fun. The steak was incredible.

Small-Group Cooking Lesson in Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fabio and his staff were very entertaining, knowledgeable and wonderful teachers. He's also a great host as we dined in his apartment on the items we had completed plus lots of wine. I also think that the experience is based on the make up of the group - our group was a nice variety so it made for a positive experience.
Note: (not an issue) the lesson is much longer than stated...we started about 9 am and I was the first to leave at 3 pm.
As for the only negative - I didn't appreciate Fabio's comment '...I need a man to handle this big knife to cut the chicken...' Really?
Recommendation - would've have liked to have a memento (shirt, apron, etc.) of the lesson.
Overall it was a very positive experience and would do it again.

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Postives: The driver, Stefano, was professional and very skilled driver. The vehicle was clean, comfortable and new. Lunch beachside in Positano was great. Pompeii tour was incredibly interesting.
Negatives: Only drove through Amalfi and able to spend about 2 hours (which included both lunch and shopping) in Positano. Tour guide in Pompeii was a bit of a character (talked excessively and multiple times about the brothels) and went over the time limit...
Would recommend the tour.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Positives: Tour guide, Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Room and audio headsets.
Negatives: Number of people in the group (20) as we waited for stragglers often. St Peter's was suddenly closed as we were exiting the Sistine Chapel so we were never able to see it
Would recommend the tour.
