Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Departure Transfer

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Boat was beautiful and immaculate. Driver was unbelievably good -- there's nothing quite like the full-throated roar of the engine as he kicks the throttle way up over the open water.

The guide was very, very solicitous, making sure that we made it all the way through some issues at the check-in counter. Overall, they executed this perfectly.

Venice Photography Walking Tour: A Day in Life of Venice

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The walk itself was beautiful; however, the guide, Mario, was very stuck on a program of basic photography skills and didn't adapt well to my level of knowledge.

Naples Shore Excursion: Pompeii and Sorrento Day Trip

Naples, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The tour description makes this sound like a small group ("driver meets you with a minivan", etc) -- don't be fooled. This is a huge tour group.

The tour operators are unorganized and unprepared. In answering questions from my mother-in-law, they were absolutely rude to her, dismissing her and refusing to answer her questions. Once on board the packed bus, we had to drive into Naples (adding 30-45 minutes) to pick up three people who were at the central bus station instead of the dock.

We booked this tour through Viator with the assurance that we would be able to take this excursion; however, AFTER we were on the bus and through Naples, the guide announced on the intercom that, for people from our ship, we wouldn't be able to go to Sorrento as they wouldn't be able to get us back to the ship in time. The staff wasn't at all apologetic and, as with everything else, they struggled to organize and sort of solution to the problem.

Our guide in Pompeii spoke poor English -- I could see that she struggled to answer simple questions from folks in the tour.

Monaco Shore Excursion: Private Day Trip to Monaco, Eze and Nice

Monaco, Monaco

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our guide, Joe, met us at the port and took us on a circuit around the Monaco Grand Prix track. After that, we drove along the beautiful coastline for a look out over Nice, then into the market in Nice, another scenic route to Eze, lunch in the old city, and an additional scenic drive looking out over Monaco.

This was the highlight of our extended European vacation. Joe was an excellent guide and, more importantly for us, he took great care of our 81 year old mother, making sure that she had everything she needed and that she could participate in our activities. If you are thinking about booking this excursion, go for it -- it's wonderful.

Marseille Shore Excursion: Marseille Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Marseille, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Beware: On the day we were in Marseille, the "hop-on hop-off" tour only ran once so, while we could have technically hopped off, we would have been quite stranded.

Skip the Line: Barcelona Sagrada Familia Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were quite impressed with both our tour guide and with the church itself. It's worth doing this simply to skip the line, which was curled around two sides of the gigantic building.
