this is a really good tour - the tour guide Patrizia was very informative and fun, the driver Sabotino was great, they are just two very good people that made sure all was well - I highly recommend this tour
The trip was well planned. Assisi, Siena, Bologna, Paduva and Montepulciano were excellent stops on our way to Florence and Venice respectively. Our tour operator, Nicole, was very helpful and well prepared for the trip. There was no delay in checking into the hotels. We went on all the optional tour. It was worth spending the extra money. The price for the trip was correct based on the hotels that we stayed. Overall it was enjoyable trip.
This was a great tour that allowed us to see many attractions in Italy in a short time, and relieved us of the hassle of arranging our own transportation and hotels if we had tried to plan it all ourselves. Our tour guide, Alessandro was OUTSTANDING. He was affable, entertaining, extremely helpful, and very well organized. When we arrived at our hotels, he had the room assignments already arranged and personally handed out the keys right as we arrived. It was nice to have some meals included at the hotels, although my only negative comment is that sometimes the hotel staff didn't appear to be prepared for us at meal time and we were missing some basic things. Overall we loved the tour.
My has been my best holiday spent ever, and my wife wants a repeat.
This trip was fantastic.! We visited so many cities and did so much that it felt like our vacation was 10 days long. The hotels throughout the tour were good as was the food they provided. If you take this trip be sure to set aside some money for the side trips that are offered during the 5 days. They are so worth it. We took the Venice by night tour and the half day trip to Pisa. Both trips were unforgettable. We have family in Italy and this tour allowed us an entire morning of free time in Bologna which we spent with our cousins whom we hadn't seen in 30 years. We had our son ,who is special needs , with us on this vacation and he did great the entire time. Even with all the walking.Our tour guide Clara was awesome. Very knowledgable and kind. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!
This tour was a great way to see a lot of Italy in a little amount of time. The guide was well organized and knowledgeable. The optional tours were also really great bonus. Pisa is defiantly worth it and the night in Venice is also a wonderful experience. Over all I had a great experience.
Our tour guide Stefano was amazing and very informative. The driver was very nice as well and drove safely. Highly recommended to all ages. Wouldn't have been able to visit all those cities on my own. Hotel selection was ok as well. Will definitely be dealing with this company again!!
We had an amazing time. The sights were amazing and our tour guide, Clara was incrediable. Thank you for the trip of a life time!!!!!!
Absolutely loved this tour. Mario our tour guide was marvellous and Carani tours were well organised and filled our tour with wonderful sights and experiences. We fully recommend this tour!
It was so much more than I expected. I had planned to do this trip on my own by train but I'm glad I didn't. I would missed so much. The bus was very comfortable and the guides were full of knowledge and fun. Clara also recommended things to do, see and eat during our free time. What a great bonus.
Was a fantastic tour highly recommend. Our guide was great and very informative. Spoke English well. Looked after our group very well
Prior to taking this tour, I reviewed comments from other travelers. Their reviews appeared too good to be true. As it turned out, the tour was excellent and far exceeded my expectations. My wife got to celebrate her birthday with a night tour of Venice. We were on a boat with other guests when it was announced that May 8 was her birthday. The parties on the boat sang happy birthday to her in English, Spanish and Italian....what a special day. Our tour guide Calara, was the best, everyone feel in love with her.
We had a great trip, our tour guide Stefano was a mine of information. Our additional trips, such as Pisa, Nightime Boat tour Venice and Gondola ride were fantastic. We really enjoyed our 5 day tour, our accommodation was very good , the meals were better at our first hotel than the second at Mestre. We had left a bag in Florence and our WONDERFUL Stefano arranged for the luggage to be returned to us in Rome. I would highly recommend this tour, it was all we could have hoped for. Go Fantasia Tours!!!
The trip was amazing. The guide, Alessansro, was fantastic and was always available to help. He was smiling and happy. The content of the trip was perfect, the visit to Assisi and Montepulciano a must.
It was a fantastic trip. We saw more in less time than we ever could have on our own. Clara and Antonio made the trip very easy and extremely interesting. Venice was breathtaking even with the rain. The local guides were very knowledgeable and enhanced our time in each of the cities. The only drawback we had was the optional museum tour in Florence to see David. It was rushed and we wished we had more time there. We would highly recommend it to anyone.
This was amazing! our tour guide, mario was the best. he was very funny and informative. The add ons were great and not over priced. This tour is highly recommended by me.
This was one of my favourite trips of all time. The staff were fantastic and everything was great.
This is a great tour and I highly recommend it. The tour guide is excellent in explaining the places we went to. The places were well chosen. keep up the good work
What a great trip. A lot to be packed into 5 days but well worth it. We did the three star package and stayed in Mestre. No problem. Easy getting back to the hotel via bus from Venice. Our tour guide Mario did a great job. It would be nice to be able to charge the optional trips via credit card as the guide only took cash (Euros). So make sure you bring enough cash. we didn't do all of the optional trips but the optional excursions to PISA and Venice at Night were worth it. Hotel Diana is very close to the Termini and the Metro.
This was the best Idea I had in Italy as a solo traveler. Everything was taken care of and someone else made the wise decisions of what to see. Hotel, transportation, even many meals were taken care of so all I had to do was enjoy the sights. Other people in the tour became friends making the whole experience double rewarding
I give this excursion five stars only because of the guide and the driver we had for this leg of the trip. There's so much to see on this trip especially that we added four additional excursions (like Pisa, Venice at Night) which makes it strenuous because we were constantly moving. Mariam made the strenuous enjoyable. Initially, we thought she was too bossy, but soon we realized that she has to take control of the group to give us the best time possible. She was tough, but very caring about each one of us. When we arrived in Venice, they were having a thunder storm, yet she still went on with the tour "Venice at Night" and explained important aspects of Venice. This trip offers an option for 3 and 4 star hotels, I strongly recommend the four star which we did because the other option leaves outside the main island, thus requiring commuting on your own. The accomodations were satisfactory sometimes and much better in Venice as we stayed at the Carlton. The bus in very good condition and the ride was comfortable. If you want to see a great deal of northern Italy, this trip is worth every penny.
Alex is a very experience and caring tour director and we enjoy the trip very much. We stayed at Mestre and the hotel is lovely, they are big and clean. Food was good too. The only down side is there are more spanish speaking than english speaking, but i guess this is the way in Europe.
Clara our guide for this trip was excellent, very organised, professional, great sense of humour which is well needed in this job. She took the worry of planning and organising everything for our group, which makes travelling and sightseeing so much more easy and relaxed. Clara was very helpful with everything we wanted to know or needed. Nothing was ever too much trouble for her. This bus trip made it easy for us to see Northern Italy. Want to add that we had **** wonderful accommodation in Florence and Venice.
