3-Day Italy Trip: Florence and Pisa

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The Tourguides were taking a day trip group to Florence and had no details for us regarding our three-day trip. It took several calls and persistent questions for them to get the details for us regarding our next day trip to Pisa. That trip was at a different time and different meeting place than indicated in Viator write up on website. We had no details regarding our trip back to Rome. The local tour company finally called the evening before and told us that we would be picked up at hotel at 5pm the next day and that a tour representative would be waiting for us at the train terminal. The tranfer driver spoke very little English, but was able to communicate to us to go to the italio train lounge. We went there and waited and continued to look around for a tour representative. We checked with italio and there was no reservation under our names in their system. At eight minutes before the train was to depart we gave up looking for representative and bought tickets ourselves back to Rome. So my message to Viator is that this is the most disorganized tour I have taken through Viator!

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The tour was suppose to be with an English language guide, but Eugenio sp? was the tour guide, leading both English and Spanish tour groups. He spent most of his time explaining in Spanish and did not give proportionate explanation in English. Felt that we got little useful information regarding what we were seeing. Also, the earphones provided were used not sanitized.....had to insist on getting a new set of earphones!

Caravaggio Art Walking Tour of Rome with Wine Tasting

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Other than fighting the crowds to see paintings.....very good tour. Jeanette has lots of knowledge of Caravaggio and of the specific paintings. Got to see 6 paintings and learned a lot about Caravaggio. Then, the food was just down right amazing, and the conversation with Jeanette and others on the tour made for a perfect time.

Great food AND tour guide was an archeologist, so gots lots of information on Ancient Rome from BC to recent past. Besides various types of pizza, also got to experience some food items (soda drinks, etc) unique to Italy.

Capri Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Guess did not pay enough attention that all the things to do on Capri were additional to the cost of the tour....my bad. So to see the Blue Grotto is additional cost, to take the tram ride is additional cost. So....the cost of the tour covers the bus ride to Naples, cost of the ferry from Naples to Capri, cost of bus taxi from town of Capri to Anacapri (town on top of island) and lunch. Without the additional costs for Grotto and Tram, your time on Capri is spent wandering around looking at shops or sitting in cafe doing people watching. Acknowledge was expecting a culture/history tour....instead of a shopping tour.
