I was hesitant at first to do this on my own, however, once I got there and seen how organized everything is and how they pick the hotels (close to public transit) I was so impressed. I would highly recommend this to any person. I traveled alone. I am a... Read more

Great trip. Fast paced itinerary which enables one to see many of the highlights of Italy and decide where to spend more time on my next trip to Italy.

It was much more walking than advertised. This was extensive walking. 20,000 to 25,000 steps per day. My girlfriend has serious blisters due to derma velosa simplex and we did not know this was a serious walking tour. Moderate was advertised.

Had a great time! Very fast pace but understand that there’s a lot to see and such little time to see it. Great experience! Thanks for the experience.

I like this tour as it’s given name, I had a taste of Italy in 8 days. Although it’s very fast but the itinerary was well planned. Roma is fantastic, she is very conscientious guide who knows her job very well! I can’t compliment enough for what she did!

We enjoyed this tour very much. The only disappointment was the Florence walking tour. Our group was 45-48 people and our guide only had a speaker with very limited range. Will recommend Expat to friends. Thank you, great value.
