As a single traveler, this was a easy way to see the northern parts of Italy without the hassle of arranging transport or having to study your guide book for information regarding what you where seeing. Our guide was brilliant and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend that you book the hotel on the island of Venice and spend a night walking around after most of the other tourist have gone for the day. Venice at night is GREAT! The tour was great, and ours was a brilliant tour guide, fun and friendly with great knowledge of all the places we visited. The hotels I stayed in were of a really good standard (even if some customers on the tour always complained about the air-con), and I had no complaints about them.

Everything was perfect: the tour guide, the bus driver, the cities and places visited, the hotels we stayed at, and especially the people we met on the tour! It was absolutely incredible!
The tour was a great value. It was better than expected. We saw lots of fabulous places in a short time. The bus was very comfortable, and the four star hotels were very nice. The tour guide was excellent. He spoke good English and was very organized, informative, and concerned for all guests on the tour. It was a great experience that we will never forget!

This was a beautiful trip. We knew several cities Assisi, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Padua, Venice and Montepulciano. The person in charge of the tour made an amazing work. It was a perfect combination of beautiful cities and outstanding service. We truly recommend this trip.
Very good value tour. We covered a lot of sites across Italy, and we especially enjoyed Siena. All the staff were very helpful, and we were looked after. We would do this again and are happy to recommend it.
Guides wonderful - Steffano and Miriam - tour was great - accommodations ok but some issues with meals and elevators....
great tour. only suggestion would be to have headsets for guide and custoemrs in each city, a little more detail when you first get into the city, then separate for free time
The bus trip is rather long and tiring with very quality time spent in Florence and Venice
We have lost time stopping over many othere places
I am inpressed with quality of hotel for standard stay. Most breakfasts are well within budget although it would be nice to havr some fruits and vegetable to help with digestion and bowel movement in some hotel such as hotel Delfino
I have met many wonderful people in this trip so overal , I am much appreciated to help open my eyes and mind. I sugeest to have some activites added such hteol with pool or stop over to have some swimming to chilled out in hot days and to relax our body and mind
.Bus driver is so so so good
Much appreciated xxxxPhet
The trip is good, tour guider is very professional, time arrange is good, but the food is not good. Overall, it worth to take part this trip.
An excellent tour with a great guide Stefano and driver Sabatino.Only a short trip but with a lot packed into it.Optional tour to Pisa was worth it.
This is amazing value and very well designed. Alessandro was an excellent guide, helped group mix and mingle/have fun. Dinners mainly pasta, did get old. Do homework about things to see/do in Bologna/Venice/Florence for the on-your-own time. Only two fleece the tourist store stops, amazing otherwise!
The trip was great. As a single person travelling I find it wonderful way to see the different places around Italy. You don’t feel alone because soon you start making friends. Our tour director Miriam was a caring person; she took control of everything, taking the worry of planning and organising everything for the group. I felt very feel safe and secure, especially me being on my own. Sabotino was a very skilled driver and very gracious to us all, helping us out off the bus and taking control of our luggage. There were some add-ons if you chose to go on them, which of course I did. I loved the gondola ride. I was lucky to have in my gondola 2 Spanish gals who sung for us.
There was a lot to pack into 5 days but it was well worth it because it gave you a birds-eye view of the places which was good as the places I loved I would return back to again and stay longer.
Our tour guide for Florence, Giovanni, was my favourite tour guide. I think all us gals really liked him, he was such a honey.
The only thing I didn’t like much was the multilingual aspect but after a time you kinda of got used to it.
I would recommend Viator as a good service provider in bus tours. I intend to use them again when I return to Europe and when I head over to the US.
We had a great time. Did not like the dinners. cheap and inexpensive. We wanted Italian food....so we went out on our own. We like Mario alot. Thanks!
