Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour, and well worth spending the extra to have access to the underground chambers and the upper tiers. These areas are genuinely closed to the public, so you are there with only your tour group. You get the chance to take in everything and hear the stories from the tour guides in comfort. Our tour guides were great at bringing the colosseum ' to life'. It's gory history certainly appealing to 9 and 11 year old boys.

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were a bit worried about a whole 13 hour day trip, but we shouldn't have. This tour was amazing. Our tour guides on the bus Sara and Anna were entertaining and very knowledgable about all things Italy. They made the 3 hour trip seem a lot quicker. Pompeii itself is a fantastic piece of history, brought to life with the enthusiasm and knowledge of our local guide Genaro. Our two boys, 11 and 9 thought it was great. Lunch was included and the quality and quantity far exceeded our expectations. Driving up mt Vesuvias was an experience, as was the 600 meter walk to the summit. We arrived back in Rome tired but excited by the day. Anyone interested in history and Pompeii should put this on the must do list.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

The rating for this is purely for the way Vatican tours are in general and not the tour operator. The place was way too crowded to view and admire any of the art work. We were constantly afraid of losing our kids in the crowd. The Sistene chapel, whilst awesome was again ' shoulder to shoulder' with people and as quick as you got in there you were being herded out. again no time or room to fully appreciate what you were viewing. Skip the line it seems simply refers to the entry, after that you are one of the throng. Full compliment to the tour guide though who managed to keep us together despite the crowds.

Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Best entry into Venice ever. Our driver gave us the choice of straight tour destination or via the Grand Canal. We chose the latter, and was then pleasantly surprised when our driver turned into a tour guide, pointing out significant sites along the way.

My Review

Arrived at the station and immediately greeted by our driver. Professional, courteous and took us straight tour destination, which was an apartment, not a hotel. Great way to start our Paris journey.
