can you put tile on top of tile?

I called a tile guy from the phonebook. I spoke to him about my bathroom floor. It's the tiny tiles from about 60 years ago. They're in ok shape, but I don't like the look. He suggested I just tile on top of them
Does that look ok? Does it work? Ripping out the tile would be a lot of work.

As long as there are no loose tiles, and no cracks in the grout, go for it.

The tiles will need to be gound down (scuffed up) a little bit in order for the thinset to be able to grip to it.
