Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

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

My Review

Boat tour was very good so would definitely do that. Also a tour of st. Marks is good because you can avoid the huge lines . I don't want to spend my holiday waiting in line for a few hours! But I wouldn't do a walking tour as Venice is so small that you could easily walk around yourself. I would suggest a boat tour and st. Marks tour but not a walking tour . Head sets were poor quality so a lot of the group could barely understand the Guide.

Skip the Line: Small-Group Florence Renaissance Walking Tour with Accademia Gallery

Florence, Italy

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

My Review

The academia tour was great. I would recommend tour as the lines are almost a mile down the street! The tour allows you to bypass the line and go straight in with your tour guide. The gallery itself it quite small but definitely worth it as David is a sight to behold! There's was also a walking part to this tour but I do not think it is worth it as Florence is such a small easy to get around city. There are sign posts everywhere for the main attractions. The head sets were also poor quality for a lot of the group so just felt we were just walking around. Could easily walk around Florence in a half day. But definitely do a guided or pre booked academia ticket just to beat the hundreds of people going to it on the same day.

Skip the Line: Florence Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very good. The uffizi gallery is huge so it's good to have a guide . Also you will not believe the lines waiting for tickets so it's great to bypass the huge lines and get straight in. Very good book store when leaving gallery so it's worth a look. We did the tour at 4.30pm which was perfect for us but if you want to look around after the tour (your ticket allows you to stay on after the tour) you will be short for time as I think the gallery closes at 6/6.30pm. We had a great tour guide. Can't remember her name but she did the tour on the 6th of May and it's was very clear and she was quite witty!

Tuscany Bike Tour from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Really good to get out of the city and see the Tuscan country side. There was only a wine tour included not an olive oil farm tour but saying that do not feel I missed out as the winery we went to was beautiful and they were very generous with the tasting glasses! Also we were given enough time at the winery to relax. Lunch was included and it was really nice food and setting. Again had time to relax with lunch. The only thing I would say is that I got the impression that it was going to be a very easy cycle and that we cycle 10 minutes , take some photos and then cycle another 10 minutes. Not so. Quite physical. Totally do-able as I'm not super fit and used to cycling . There is a good bit of cycling. More hills than I expected....I walked up them with the bike, as did most people.... We stopped every 30/40 minutes. Would recommend but be prepared!

Pisa Half-Day Trip from Florence Including Skip-the-Line Leaning Tower of Pisa Ticket

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Really good as Pisa is quite a pretty town. Definitely do Pisa tower climb as it's a weird and cool feeling up there at a slant. Only issue was that it felt very rushed. There is no free time. Got off bus, did tour, did tower climb, went into cathedral for 15minutes, then back on bus. Won't have time for food or souvenir shopping. Would have liked another half hour there as it did feel rushed. Other than that I would definitely recommend.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Pompeii tour was amazing. It is a long day , approx 12 hours but worth it. Naples was good to see from the bus as it is a famous city but it is an absolute dive of a place. Felt like it was a city in need of some desperate repair. Glad I saw Naples but never want to visit there again. Pompeii itself was wonderful. Didn't realise the scale of the place. Really good guide. Lunch included and it was ok. Wasn't the worst but wasn't the best. The only issue it that at Pompeii section was very rushed. Had no free time to look at souvenirs or book stores. We stooped at a "beach " in Naples. Didn't need to do this. There are a lot if nicer beacges

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

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Amazing tour. Definitely recommend it. There is a colosseum tour with an afternoon walk as a package but I booked them separately as this was a more in depth tour of the colosseum . Will still have time to do walking tour in the afternoon if you wish.

The tour was great as we got to go closed off lower underground sections and closed off upper tier. Got to skip the massive lines going into the colosseum with our tour guide.

Also included in the tour is a walk around the roman forum and Palentine hill. Amazing tour , couldn't recommend it enough!
