Paris Night Bike Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic tour, highlight of my 20 day Europe trip. 4 hours can be a bit much on a bicycle but the tour guide was amazing and really informative and he ensured everyone was relaxed and we took sufficient breaks so it didn't feel as strenuous as one would imagine it to be. We had a few elderly people on the tour as well, and they seemed to be having a great time. Great way to see Paris and we were able to complete all the main tourist attractions from the outside. Since we only had 3 days in Paris, this was more than enough sightseeing for us and a perfect introduction to first timers in Paris. It was raining and we didn't get to see the sunset, but the tour guide and the tour was fantastic that it didn't really matter whether it was raining or not.

Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Fantastic tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our random questions. Spent quite a bit of time in the Colosseum which was great. I didn't really enjoy the Roman Forum part of the tour but everything else was great. The tour is all about walking so make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes on and a bottle of water because the water sold near the attractions can be quite pricey. Our tour group was pretty tired by the time we got to the last spot on the list. We had done a 3 hour Vatican tour in the morning, so a 3 hour ancient Rome tour in the evening was a bit to much for my parents. I would recommend doing the ancient Rome tour on it's own on one day. Great way to cover of the main attractions in Rome.

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

Rome, Italy

My Review

Fantastic tour. Had a good tour guide. They take you through all the main rooms and is good introduction for first time Vatican tourists. My family (2 parents + 2 adult children) really enjoyed this tour and it wasn't strenuous at all. The lines for the Vatican are really long, they get about 26,000 tourists a day. So going with a tour company + skip the line tickets is the best way to see the Vatican else you can end up standing in queues for hours.

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a perfect tour. Amalfi and Positano were amazing and we wish we had more time there. Pompeii was great and lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Very long day. Our tour guide was very knowledgable. Only downside is that you can't hear anything in the van if you sit in the back.

Small-Group Tuscany Wine-Tasting Tour from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I only chose this tour because of the reviews I had read. For our palette the wine's were a bit too strong and even the food that was served for dinner was quite tasteless. Some of the other group members from America didn't enjoy the wines either, so I guess it wasn't just us or our palette. For dinner we had tomato sauce pasta, a few cured meats, some cheeses and that was pretty much it and not worth the money we spent on the tour. My parents and I didn't enjoy this tour at all. However our tour guide (Tom?) was quite good and knew what he was talking about. The groups are small and personalised but definitely not what I was expecting. We didn't visit any small towns or hamlets as suggested on the itinerary of the tour. The tour could probably do with a few pit stops in Tuscan villages + time to spend in these towns. This was one of the 7 tours I had booked through Viator for our Italy trip and easily my least favourite tour. Wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone unfortunately.

Skip the Line: Best of Venice Walking Tour including Basilica di San Marco

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We had a really good tour guide who provided us with a good insight into the surroundings. She walked at a really slow pace which was great for my elderly parents. I have taken this same tour once before and it is good and well organized and covers the important parts of Venice in a short period.
