This was a great way to see the city! The size and vast array of sites to see in Rome can be daunting, but after riding the bus around the city, and listening to the guided information, we had a much better idea on how to navigate the sites that we wanted to see. The terminal and stopping points are well marked and easy to find and we never had to wait long for the next available bus to arrive. We suggest getting at least a 48 hour pass if you are staying in the city for more than a day.
I will always recommend Viator after our experience in Naples! Due to the strikes at Pompeii, we were unable to enter until 11:00 am. But the tour guide surprised us with a drive up to a panoramic view of the city while we were waiting to enter Pompeii. It was a wonderful "side-track" and a gorgeous photo op. because of the delay in getting to Pompeii, we were concerned we would not have time to complete the full tour up the Amalfi coast, but our wonderful tour guide worked the whole time we were in Pompeii to make different arrangements for me and my daughter so we could still complete the tour. She hired a private driver for us, ordered us lunch to go, and off we went on a personal tour of the coast! We were so grateful for her efforts and will always remember that breath-taking view of the coast as we traveled along. We arrived in plenty of time to board the ship, just as they had promised. Thank you Viator for being such a dedicated company to your customers!
This tour was jam packed full of great things! We had a great guide who had knowledge and a great way of teaching about each site that allowed us to really understand the history and significance of every stop. The only thing that we could have skipped was the unexpected stop at the leather store and fashion show that we were all led to. I would have rather spent more time at the other stops. Since we were the only ones on this tour that were part of a cruise, and needed to be back to the ship on time, our reliable guide arranged a ride back for us and we made it in plenty of time to board the ship, just as Viator promised!
Hop on buses are a great way to see parts of the city first before deciding where to get off and explore . The stops were easy to find, the audio easy to hear and understand, and the view from the top of the bus is awesome! Definitely recommend this inexpensive way to navigate the big cities!
DELIGHTFUL to say the least! We had just the right amount of time on each island to get a taste of its local flavor and visit the sites. The glass blowing demonstrations were awesome and the lace stores were fun to explore, but just walking around in Burano, looking at all of the brightly colored houses was my favorite. Torcello was a really unique island....it felt like stepping back in time on this peaceful little island as we saw the amazing ancient church and courtyard. Each island was unique in its own way, and less crowded than the city of Venice. We are so glad we chose this tour!
