    Exactly how I like with the itinerary, you’re able to visit most of the place’s must-see destinations and heaps of time to know the place more on your own.

    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.

    Had a fantastic time! Kat was very approachable and very accomodating. She was very organised and was able to lead the group very effectively. I was very impressed by her proffessionalism!

    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.

      I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
