Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The drive to Pompeii was entertaining. Massimo, the guide, was great. The bus was clean and air conditioned. Bernadette, Pompeii guide was knowledgeable. The town was amazing. Lunch was ok. I would stick with the margarita pizza. The walk to the top of Vesuvius was hot (It was August!) and difficult to get traction. You were walking on very fine crushed rock. My kids had a great time. Oh, your toilet break on the way down is the same toilet break place on the way back, so if you want to buy something wait until your trip back.

Rome Super Saver: Colosseum and Ancient Rome with Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This turns out to be a long day. I would recommend not taking this tour in August. TOO HOT!! Otherwise, it was great. One of the best parts is skipping the long lines! And if you don't plan ahead, you will be standing in line at least an hour, if not longer to get in the colosseum. Lots of walking! Bring your water bottles. All the information given is unbelievable. If you don't have lots of time to spend in Rome, this is a great tour. Be aware, where the first part ends is not the same place the second part begins. You have to make you way to the second part of the tour on your own, at you expense. It is walkable, but you don't feel like walking it after touring the Colosseum. The second part of the tour is at a slower pace and hits all the highlights of the city. Barbara (Colosseum) and Natasha (Best of Rome) were exceptional tour guides.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Small-Group Tour including Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Outstanding tour! Small group and being early in the morning was great. Skipping the lines was well worth the price of this tour. Started to get crowded 2 hours into the tour. Alexandro, our guide, was great. I've been to the Louvre and this definitely rates the same awe factor. The nice thing is after the guided tour, you are able to go back and tour the rooms you don't get to see. The tour lasted 3 hours, but you definitely want to spend a few more hours looking around. Also, I recommend walking to the top of the dome. It is well worth the view. They are also telling the truth about covered knees and shoulder. Another tip is if you are bring a backpack, you have to stow it at the beginning of the tour, then you have to walk around the outside of the Vatican wall back to the entrance to retrieve your bag (approximately 400 m). I would recommend buying your souvenirs at the Vatican gift shop. Their prices were cheaper than the stores outside the Vatican.

Driver was on time and vehicle was clean. We had a party of 6 adults, 4 large pieces of luggage, and 4 small pieces of luggage. We fit comfortably in the van. It was nice to walk out and see that sign with my name on it waiting on us.
