    Enjoyed Highlights of Italy tour this August. Especially enjoyed Venice, with its spectacle of grand piazza's, canals and inviting shops of amazing masks and general festive atmosphere. Found our tour guide Inga, both engaging and professional with many tales of interest. Cinque Terra, was also very memorable with it's beautiful mountain top towns and vivid blue seascapes, walking the trail was unforgettable. With a great bunch of fellow travellers this was one of the most enjoyable tours i have booked. Only disappointment was arriving in Mestre to Hotel Mondail and the associated Hotel.açcross the road, this put a damper on the start of the trip, but fortunately the standard of hotels improved as we travelled throughout Italy. Overall fantastic trip.

    Amazing trip through the highlights of Italy, saw all the places I wanted to. Had lots of freedom and free time to do what we wanted to do, didn't have to spend every second with the group which what I liked about it. Tour leader was amazing, in each location would give us maps, highlight places, how to get to spots, recommend things when we were not sure. Just really good trip through Italy, saw heaps, ate heaps, and made new friends!

    The Highlights of Italy trip was an amazing way to see the country. Our leader took us to some amazing restaurants, and we were free to explore or take part in suggested activities.

    I thought the trip was fantastic! It really helped my girlfriend and I to really get into the culture of the Italy and to go places we most likely would not have adventured with out the support of Kat and the group.

    Jenny is a great tour leader. Australians make the best travel companions. Accommodations although a basix trip are pretty bad especially in Cinque Terre and Rome.

    This was a really enjoyable trip, it was very well organised for both the accomodation and the transport. Giuseppe was fantastic, he took great care of us, did brilliant orientation walks/talks and was very knowledgable about the places we were seeing.
