My Review

Justin was absolutely fabulous! He was very friendly and funny, and most of all he was very informative! He gave us all the tips when going into the line-ups, and was always concerned that we were able to hear him and that we were able to see all the things he pointed out. I really was happy that we chose this way to see the tower, as its probably the most important landmarks in Paris. We felt very comfortable the moment we walked into the tour office, and we were made at home by all the staff. It was like an oasis in the middle of a strange city, with clean washrooms (free!) inexpensive bottled water, safe place to sit and wait, and very helpful for food places. I would very highly recommend to use this tour to everyone!

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

With only 2 and a half days in Venice, we decided to do 2 guided tours early on Saturday morning, and we are sure glad that we booked the Secret tour of the Doge's Palace! We had a great young tour guide, (who I can't remember her name!) who was very helpful and answered all our questions. Did not know the story of Casanova and how he escaped from the prison! The earpieces were helpful in listening to her speak, but as we were in some of the small narrow stairwells, and if we were at the back, the sound cut-out and in a fair bit, so missed some of her commentary. We just informed her and she repeated what she had shared. We carried on after the tour was over and walked through all the amazing gigantic rooms! Would not have missed this beautiful building. Thank you!!

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark's Basilica

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

With only 2 full days in Venice, we decided to book a tour of St, Mark's and a walking tour for Saturday morning. We are so glad we did, and our tour guide Rosanna was very pleasant and helpful for getting us inside at the right time, as there was always other competitor tour groups all trying to get into the Basilica at the right time. I had to check in our back-pack along with a couple of others from our tour, so she directed us to the place to check them in. Didn't take long at all, and went in pretty quickly. It really is an amazing Church with all the gold mosaic murals all over the walls and ceilings. The 12 Apostles and Mark are all dark in colour from all the candles that used to be used to illuminate the inside. Rosanna always had answers for our questions, and she pointed out numerous things that we would have never uncovered by ourselves! The tour of the streets heading over to the Rialto area was fantastic also, and she taught us how to walk on the right side, so the people of Venice can go about their busy lives, and get to where they are going in a timely manner. Thank you for providing us with such a fantastic guide!
