This was absolutely the best tour I have ever been on. My son and I booked this hoping to see some of the Italian cars and taste some of the food. Although we prefer renting our own car and discovering on our own, there is no way to do everything that we did without this tour. Everything--everything was taken care of in advance. They emailed us in advance to confirm our time. They picked us up in a spacious vehicle and drove just my son and I to each location. The driver was a very good driver too--which was a relief to me after sitting in several crazy taxis. At each stop we were given more than enough time to stay, take pictures, go to the bathroom, and buy souvenirs. We also could have test driven several cars (we did not do this, but we had time to do it). The tour operators knew exactly where to go. I cannot put into words what it was like to see so many Maserati's, Ferrari's, Lamborghini's and many other exotic cars. It was a jaw dropping experience. I have never seen anything like it in the United States. The initial Maserati museum was breathtaking--I was shocked at how many beautiful and rare cars there were. The food was outstanding as well. The quality of the Parmigiano cheese was superb and nothing like what the US has. And we got to learn about the types of balsalmic vinegar. I actually tasted and purchased several bottles of 25 year old balsalmic vinegar.
If you have a teen boy, this is absolutely the best place to take him. It was the highlight of the entire trip to Italy for my son and he is the envy of every one of his friends. Not once did he check his phone while we were there--because he was engrossed with seeing the cars.
There is one other thing to say--I did not expect this, but seeing these cars gave a much more powerful sense of the pride of Italian culture. There is a film in the Ferrari museum which was maybe 10 minutes long, but it explained in words and music why these cars are so important to the Italian people--it is a celebration of their art, style, and engineering, and they have much to be proud of.
I rarely ever write reviews, but I owed it to the tour operators and to any other family who is visiting to do this tour. It is outstanding.
Wonderful road trip to all the high end Italian Car Makers. Antonio and his interpreter Marta, made for an extremely interesting and informative day trip. As a lone traveler I felt very comfortable. Learned so much about Ferrari, Lamborghini & Maserati. All works of Italian creativity. Maserati “hobby” making Parmesan cheese was a very tasty treat.
