it took me 3 years to write a review..but.. the tour was great! it was fun and we visited to so many places. Hotels were also good
Wakey Wakey !!!
Be prepared to walk! Days are early and nights are long but you do get to see all that this tour promised. Hotels were more like 3 than 4, meals were adequate but you really do get a taste of Italy. Our tour guide Nicole was so well organized, we actually got to sneak in some shopping along the way. Thanks Nicole!

Got to see so many places but didn't feel rushed which is incredible!. There were usually tours in the mornings and then the afternoons free to ourselves, which was great to see more of what we wanted to see that maybe the rest of the group didn't or to relax and people watch while we ate gelato. We usually came together again at dinner time part of the tour included some of the dinners. Being with the same small group and tour guide meant that it felt like a group of friends who had their separate adventures during the day and shared their stories over dinner each night!
Even though it was really 6 and a half days it was still very good! Had plenty of free time in each place and it was well organized! Definitely recommend!
Great Trip, Wonderful Guide
My spouse and I had a great time. This is a perfect trip for people traveling Italy the first time. Everything in the itinerary was covered. The tour is well organized, not to mention our tour director Nicola who is very professional and always encourages everyone to be punctual so that we can have more free time on our own. Local guides were informative and knowledgeable regarding the site. Among the hotel that we checked in, we didn't like Hotel Villafranca. Dinner is just okay to satisfy your hunger. It was an enjoyable experience.

This is a good tour. My only complain is that the dinner food being serve at Hotel Continental Venice food is terrible. Aside from that, everything is ok.
Great overview of Italy! The tour leader, Pier, ran a slick operation and the timings worked well in terms of how much time you had at each place. It did feel a bit like a Catholic pilgrimage (loads of visits to churches).
The hotels are average, but clean and relatively comfortable. Food was decent enough. The trip is good value for money. Guides in each town are knowledgeable and friendly.
A definite recommendation, but please note this is more a 6-day tour but still worthwhile.
There is a fair amount of walking but at a comfortable pace and optional extras to Pisa, a gondola ride in Venice and a boat trip around Lake Garda were enjoyable experiences.
Tour guide Pierre was excellent. We ending up travelling on a really big bus for only 7 of us plus the driver and guide. The hotels, except Milan, are rated 4* but are definitely 3's - okay but not memorable. Dinners at the hotels were mediocre at best and in Venice the service was abominable - 2 nights in a row, even after we complained the first night. Pierre did the best he could to rectify the situation but the hotel has final control. The local guides were all knowledgable and friendly. We enjoyed all the places we visited but would probably skip Milan and the lakes if we did it again - just not worth the time we spent. Assisi was spectacular and Venice was magic. Florence was, to our surprise, kind of ho-hum, but we didn't spend much time there. We would love to travel with Pierre again - he was very, very well versed in Italy, patient with some of our more trying travelling companions, and had a rather dry sense of humor.
