Vespa Small Group Day Trip to the Chianti Wine Region

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a hoot this was! We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and seeing the countryside from a very Italian view point. Tom, our guide, was very accommodating and knowledgable. We had a real mix of experience in our group, a range of ages and both single and double Vespas. Throw in a delicious lunch, a winery tour (and a lesson in identifying a true Chianti Classico), a deli visit and a pine nut gelato to finish the day and it was practically perfect! The only thing missing was a siesta. It was everything it said it would be! Thanks.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

David, our guide, brought this tour to life. He was informative, entertaining and knowledgable. His passion and insight into the art of the Vatican especially the Raphaell rooms made this tour vey worthwhile. It would not have been nearly as interesting without him. Visiting the Sistene Chapel was good as was St Peters. These are two sites that everyone should visit at least once in their lives regardless of religion.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The highlights of this tour was being able to go to the underground chambers and the third tier. These were amazing - especially the views from the third tier. Otherwise the tour did not really live up to expectations. Our guide was historically knowledgable but there was too much information given on too few sites. We were also disappointed that we had to wait for nearly 30 minutes for the tickets to be collected for the Colosseum. We were on the understanding that the tour was meant to depart at 9.30 but we did not get underway until nearly 10.00am. A waste of 30 minutes. We would have expected these to be already organised and the tickets to be given to us, for a souvenir if nothing else!

My Review

Fantastic! This was our first full day in Rome and this was a BRILLIANT introduction to Rome. We were a little apprehensive about the traffic but there was NO issue at all nor was riding over the cobblestones. Occasionally pedestrians were a problem. We loved visiting a number of the major sites as well as discovering little lane ways. We only had 4 in our group which meant we could easily keep up with each other. Simone, our leader, was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour.
