We had fantastic days, the tour director Sabrina was a caring person, everything was clearly on the note, explaining how or where you want to go, and show you how not to get lost easily, during the trip, was not boring in the tour bus, we had a lot of fun, creating a lot of cozy atmosphere, lots of laughs. She gave us even more great tips, after that, we did an extra day trip to see more of the south coast, it's a very nice experience, thanks Sabrina. The driver Franco was an experienced driver, he also helped everything, the elderly getting in and out with the high steps, the heavy suitcases. On the last day we had a problem, taxi strike, he help us again. thanks Franco.

The tour fulfilled everything we hoped for when we booked. Our tour guide Sabrina was very well organised and clearly outlined places of interest and the importance of meeting places and punctuality, which contributed to the smooth running of the trip. She regularly enquired about our welfare and if we were enjoying the trip and would address any issues of concern. The accommodation at each location was excellent .We enjoyed the meals food was good and varied Great group of people from all part’s of the world

This was a non-stop Italian extravaganza. All stops were architectural gems. Highly recommend this five day tour. Splurge on the optional tours, well worth the cost. Particularly enjoyed the Venice at night. Make sure to bring your walking shoes, this tour requires walking uphill and heavy walking endurance. Not for the faint of heart. Enjoy!

had an excellent time. great knowledgeable guide and driver antonio is very professional. hotel and food at delfino-mestre should be improved.
