Venice Super Saver: Skip-the-Line Doge's Palace and St Mark’s Basilica Tours plus Venice Walking Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My sisters and I booked this tour together with our husbands (6 of us), and I can speak for them, as well, when I say that we all loved this tour. Our guide was FABULOUS, gave us a lot of information about what we were seeing, and made the whole tour interesting and fun. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get the highlights of this fascinating city.

Murano Glass and Burano Lace Tour from Venice

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Oh My Goodness!! This 2-in-one tour was such fun! Our guide gave us information on the water taxi over, to Murano, and then on the boat from Murano to Burano. The Murano Glass Factory was facinating, and we really enjoyed watching the artisans working the glass! The chandeliers, candlesticks, vases, jewelry, etc. were magnificent! The tour of Burano was informative AND Gorgeous! The colors!! The boats and bridges and flowers! We enjoyed seeing how the laces were made, and then indulged and purchased some embroidered linens trimmed with Burano lace for our homes. Don't miss these 'Kodak Moments', as these two islands were wonderful!

Skip The Line: Best of Florence Walking Tour including Accademia Gallery and Duomo

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My family (6 adults) loved this tour. Our guide, an art historian, was well-informed and had a great sense of humor, and pride in his birth city. His enthusiasm was contagious, and we really got so much more out of our few days in Florence, than we would have without this great tour.

Cinque Terre Small Group Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a beautiful drive (only my family of 6 and a mother and daughter traveling with us) up to Cinque Terre, and the visit to 4 out of 5 of the towns for which the area is named. (One is cut off, apparently, due to a rockslide over the access..). We all loved this tour which comprised some interesting information, but mostly provided opportunities to explore the towns, take photos, (breathtaking views everywhere!), shop and eat lunch (Lunch and local wine at Trattoria El Capitan was excellent!), and of course, gelato! Yaris, our guide was informed, friendly, and stopped several times along the way for us to get More Photos! My family agrees this is a winner, and we Highly Recommend it.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This was the ONLY tour my family booked with Viator out of seven which was a disaster. The tour operator was very disorganized, our guide, Monica, was rude, (in 3 languages!), she lost one of the passengers after the poorly organized lunch at the predetermined restaurant which caused us to be late to the tour of the ruins of Pompeii where our busload of people was divided by language into groups. Our English speaking guide for this was "Mondo", who was very nice, funny and informative and, perhaps because we started late, very impatient to rush through so we could finish in time. He left us abruptly at the end of the tour, and many had trouble finding where to meet the bus, again.

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

This tour was a wonderful 'introduction" to Vatican City. There is too much to see to suggest this is a tour of everything, but it covers all the highlights extremely well. Our guide was well-informed, organized, and insightful, and greatly contributed to my family's (all 6 adults) enjoyment of Rome. I would highly recommend this tour.
