By far, this was the best day we spent in Italy. Our guide was amazing. Her knowledge of what we were visiting and the best way to avoid the crushing crowds made the day enjoyable. She got us from place to place without incident while watching out for the older members of our group. The Vatican museum and St. Peter's were more beautiful than any pictures we have ever seen. The Sistine Chapel made you catch your breath and just stand there in awe of what Michaelangelo had accomplished. Everyone, no matter your faith, should see this beautiful place. I am so happy we chose this tour rather than others we reviewed. Not having to wait in long lines gave us more time to enjoy what we had traveled there to see. It was an extraordinary experience.
Having just four people on the gondola was very nice. I was disappointed that there was no narrative from the gondolier. It would have been nice to be told what we were looking at and some of the history behind the city. We had a little trouble finding the location to meet the group. It would have been helpful to have been given some sort of directions to the meeting point as Venice is a confusing city to get around. BG Gainesville, FL
Naples as a city was disappointing. It has degraded and the grafitti and litter has made much of the city look like a slum. Our guide was very nice and informative and the church he took us through was beuatiful. Unfortunately, it too had suffered some misuse on the exterior areas. Our guide and trip to Pompeii was extremely informative. We had visited Pompeii previously, but this trip took us through another part of the city. Our guide was very observant of people keeping up and slowed down when appropritae to give people a chance to rest a few minutes. Overall, a day well spent.
