Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We very much enjoyed this tour. It was a fairly short tour which focused on Michelangelo's David, and also the other unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo in the museum, which were also wonderful. David itself is stunning and it is well worth visiting this museum to see David alone - a real highlight of our time in Florence. Our guide was very interesting and informative, and it was great to learn a little of Michelangelo's life, art and style of sculpture. It was also great to skip the line which was just enormous and very slow moving due to the
limited numbers allowed in the museum at any one time.

Skip the Line: Small Group Florence Uffizi Gallery Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We loved our tour of the Uffizi Gallery. The gallery itself was fantastic, with a vast array of wonderful art. We had a wonderful guide who took us to some of the highlights. She was very knowledgeable and interesting and we all learnt so much through the tour. The gallery would have been a little overwhelming without a guide as there is so much to see. We would highly recommend this tour.

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We loved our tour of the Vatican. We had a wonderful guide who was very knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining. She took us to some of the highlights in the museum, including the Raphael rooms, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Cathedral. We learnt so much along the way and loved every minute. Our 3 children aged 13,13 and 11 also loved the tour. It would be hard to tour these museums without a guide as they are enormous. It was also great to skip the line into the museum, which was huge.

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We enjoyed this tour of the colosseum and Roman forum. It was great to see the area beneath the Colosseum where the wild animals were kept, and to see where the gladiators fought. This tour allows you to see parts of the Colosseum which have restricted access. Our guide was great - very knowledgeable and informative.

Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery and Gardens Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We loved our tour of the Borghese gallery. It was a highlight of our time in Rome. It has wonderful art, and is a manageable size - much less overwhelming than the Vatican museums which allows you to really enjoy the art. Our guide, Violet, was wonderful. Very knowledgable, informative and entertaining, and with a real passion for the art which added to the experience. Our children aged 13 and 11 also loved this tour. We went on our first day in Rome, which worked well as we were able to spot paintings and sculptures by our favorite
artists in the churches etc during the rest of our time in Rome and Italy.

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Ticket and Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We absolutely loved our tour of the Doges palace. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting, and we learned so much about the history of Venice and the Doges Palace. It was fascinating. We also enjoyed the wonderful art in the palace, and our guide's insight into it. Part of the tour also involved crossing over the Bridge of Sighs and seeing the old prisons, all of which our children particularly enjoyed. We would highly recommend this tour.

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Our Eiffel Tower experience was just OK, through no fault of our guide. It was nice to skip the line at the bottom of the tower, but the queue to get up to the top level was very long, it was very crowded and just not a great experience. Too many crowds.
