Amazing sites in very little time

Although the tour was only 5 days, we experienced a lot of Italy! My favourity city was Venice. The gondola was amazing and I will definitely be going back again. Our tour guide, Nicole went above and beyond for the tour group and she always had both entertaining personal stories and knowledge about the history of Italy. There is a lot of walking but the tour is definitely worth your time and money. I also met a number of new people who i intend to keep with after the tour. I highly recommend anyone who wants to see a lot Italy but only has a few days to take this tour!

Good but not enough

Our tour guide, Evelina, was great!!! She went far and beyond trying to get our lost luggage back to us. The local guides were different from each other: the lady from Venice was the best in organization, historical information and charisma. The lady from Florence was too hasty as did not wait for elderly people and almost lost a few back in Ponte Vecchio. Pisa's guide was fun!!

Clara did a very good job leading a rather large group of 39 travelers. The hotels were very nice especially breakfast at the Mediterranean Hotel. The Hotel Delfino in Venice was a respectable property but the breakfast a bit to be desired.

A great way to see some of Italy's finest attractions.

Our tour rep,, Clara, was exceptionally patient and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. We really enjoyed this Italian adventure......

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