Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Terrible guide. She could barely speak English and was VERY hard to understand. My wife even took out her earbud after 20 minutes. We had to wait and watch 6 other groups go inside Basilica San Marco before our group because our guide was so disorganized and timid. While inside, our guide was actually reprimanded by the guide from another group for not following tour guidelines. She kept losing people from our large group (including us) because she only brought an umbrella to hold up, but then wouldn't lift it high enough for anyone to see it. Instead of using phrases like "look to your left at ...", she just kept saying "look" so that most of our time was spent trying to find her and what she may be looking at. Very unprofessional, frustrating and disappointing. The entire morning experience was so bad, we didn't want to waste our time with the afternoon portion of the tour. There should be a zero star rating for tour like this.

Tuscany Towns and Chianti Wine-Tasting Tour from Florence: Siena and Pisa

Florence, Italy

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

My Review

Wonderful places, but not much of a "tour". We were very hurried in Siena because of a 30 minute! bathroom break before starting the tour. Very nice lunch at the Machiavelli estate, but calling it a wine tasting is borderline dishonest. We only got to spend a half hour in Pisa ... cool to see, but not really worth the drive time. In all, not very organized. Quote of the day from another member of our group: " Geez, you'd think they would have done this tour before"

Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery and Gardens Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Worth doing for the incredible gallery alone. Our guide was very informative and insighful, and this added to our enjoyment of the experience. The gardens walking portion of the tour is a waste of time, though.

Skip the Line Private Tour: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Art History Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

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

My Review

Our guide, Marta, could not have been more passionate and informative. Unfortunately, her English could be much better. She was excellent in communicating her subject matter, but she was virtually unable to answer any questions. Most of our questions were answered with Marta smiling and repeating the very last sentence she told us. It was kind of like having a wonderfully passionate and personified audio tour ... but one you're unable to pause.

If you've never been to the Vatican Museums, this should be the only way to consider seeing them. Our guide Ivana was exceptional.

Rome Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating

My Review

Broken earbuds and ports. Terrible delays. What's to like? Considering we watched way more buses for the OTHER sightseeing tour companies come and go while wating for ours at the same stop, this bus company is impossible to recommend.
