Fantastico!!! Food was so-so but the wine flowed freely and the Flamenco show itself was terrific! Definitely a highlight of our time in Barcelona!

Skip the Line: Barcelona Sagrada Familia Tour

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Sagrada Familia is definitely a sight worth seeing in Barcelona and I think a guide is probably also a requirement. THIS local guide, however, I wouldn't recommend. The staff was late in arriving to get the groups organized, slow to organize groups, seemed generally disorganized. Tour itself okay.

Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a jam-packed day of sightseeing but we received a wonderful overview of Istanbul's top four attractions. Our guide, Hatice (pronounced "HOT-i-jay") was absolutely terrific - super-charming and friendly and so knowledgeable about her city and its long and colorful history. She pulled no punches when discussing the pros and cons of Istanbul but obviously loves the city and its people. Overall, a fantastic day!

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

Excellent tour and the "skip the line" portion is absolutely invaluable! We met very early (7.50 a.m.) outside the museum entrance and once we were ready to enter, there was already quite a long queue - which we breezed right past and into the lobby. Our group was small (10) so it was easy to stay together and the tour guide was very informative and kept us moving along quite efficiently. We visited Vatican City on the day before Palm Sunday so St Peter's was super-crowded but the small group made it easy for our guide to get us together to impart information and then give us a few minutes to take photos, etc. before we gathered again to move to the next point of interest. Excellent morning!

Rome Angels and Demons Half-Day Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I would give this tour more stars if they were available! What was supposed to be a 4 hour tour actually turned into a little over 6 but our guide, Roberto, was possibly the best tour guide I have ever had in any city. Don't be fooled by his retro-hippie appearance (camo pants, hoodie and long ponytail) - this is one smart guy and he was able to put into context two thousand years of cultural and religious history, along with placing it both in the city of Rome and the world as a whole. As we walked and bused from location to location mentioned in the Dan Brown book, "Angels and Demons," Roberto debunked myths and clarified points from the book (remember, it is a novel, not a history tome) while integrating actual facts from the Council of Nicea to Vatican II. If FACTS are not your thing, you won't like this tour, but if you love seeing history and culture put into perspective with pagan and religious myth, you will LOVE this tour!

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The walk portion was just okay, with the tour guide giving some interesting factoids about Venice and Venetians and a brief little scurry through the cathedral of San Marco. My husband and I even left the tour toward the very end because we just weren't engaged. The guide was very good, the tour itself just wasn't very interesting. The boat ride on the Grand Canal, however, was THE highlight. The guide was brilliant and personable and made the ride lots of fun.

Good driver/guide with lots of interesting information. No stops to speak of outside the Abbey Road Studio and Bill Wyman's restaurant but fun nonetheless.

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This is a good time saver; you still have to queue up for the actual tour, but even on a very cold February morning, the ticket lines were long, so this pre-purchase saved us from standing out in the freezing wind.

Oxford, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What a wonderful way to spend a day. The tour guide was very interesting and informative, the time spent at Warwick Castle and in Stratford and Oxford was wonderful, and we even had a fantastic meal not included in the price but very reasonable. It was a three course meal at a very atmospheric pub, which was very fitting.
