Wood floor over ceramic tile

I would like to install snap and lock wood flooring in my kitchen which now has ceramic tile.
Part 1 of my question is that I have heard that you can install the wood flooring over top of the tile. Is this a good idea?
Part 2 relates to removing the ceramic tile. If it does need to be removed before putting the wood floor in, I thought I might help save on the job cost by removing the ceramic tile myself. If you have done this before, please tell me is it worth the time/trouble to save the money? Thanks for your answers!!!!

There's no reason to remove the tile. But you will need to smooth out the surface with something like self-leveling cement.

you dont have to skim the floor it comes with a foam padding that you lay down first and acts as a moisture retarder/noise reducer the thing i would worry about is the heighth,do you have the room to go up another layer?

I think we could go up another layer. Only problem is the adjoining room (which we are also going to do in hardwood) is currently carpet. So we would have to bulk up the carpet room by about three layers to make the two rooms come out even....

you may want to consider taking the other down instead of trying bring everything to meet what you are going to add to it
