Skip the Line: Florence in One Day Sightseeing Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Everything went as planned, from booking to actually going on the one day tour from Rome to Firenze. Angelica was a great guide who took the trouble to show us all that we could have wanted to see. The food served for lunch was wonderful and the restaurant was great. Fabrizio, the driver did a marvellous job of driving us there and back, safely and without incident. In total, a great day out, if tiring (but then we did a lot of walking) Firenze is a fabulous city and I thoroughly recommend both the tour and the city.

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

The Vatican tour, which included the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's was a great experience. Our guide was exemplary; he was knowledgeable and interesting and managed to navigate us through the crowds, so that we spent no time queuing for access, despite the large gatherings of visitors. A great day out and to be recommended. I'm so pleased to have had a guide because I'd have never seen a lot of what we saw or understood what I was looking at. Many thanks.

Rome Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The hop on hop off bus tour was OK and I suppose it gives an impression of the city of Rome within the walls. But it is too short, and too repetitive. Would I buy the tickets again? I'm not sure that I would, when I compare it to the similar buses in London and Paris. Could do better, I think.

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Booking etc was easy and straightforward. We were picked up from our Hotel, so it couldn't have been easier, particularly as it was an early start. All the staff were pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. I think the Naples visit was a little disappointing; apart from a short stop looking across the Bay of Napoli (which is glorious) the rest of that leg of the tour comprised a short bus trip around the city. It's not a very attractive city and there didn't seem to be much to see. I was surprised at how poor it appeared. Not sure I'd want to visit again. However, the visit to Pompeii was wonderful. Our tour guide was a little hard to understand at times, so despite that difficulty, he led us through Pompeii in an efficient manner and we were able to appreciate what it must have been like to live in a Roman town, what activities took place on a daily basis, and how devastating the effects of Vesuvius' eruption had on everyone and everything, including animals. For the Pompeii part of the day alone, I would recommend this tour.

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Booking and meeting was easy and efficient. Simone, our guide was marvellous; he was interesting, amusing, entertaining and enlightening. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. Simone spent a lot of time explaining and illuminating parts of the tour, so that when we subsequently saw the subject, it made sense and enabled a lot of what we were told to be understood and retained. The 3 or so hours flew by and I was quite disappointed when it came to an end - I think that's a true test of a good tour, that you don't want it to end. Many thanks to all concerned but especially Simone.

Private Arrival Transfer: Rome Fiumicino Airport to Hotel

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our flight was about 20 minutes late so I was concerned that we would not see our driver in the arrivals hall. No need to have worried, though, because he was standing in a prominent position, with our name displayed. The journey into Rome, and to our Hotel, was quick and comfortable. We had an interesting conversation with our driver which made the time pass so quickly. A great introduction to Rome (my first time there) and a great start to what turned out to be a great holiday.
