    Enjoyed the trip very much. Would have liked to stay in Pisa longer. Didn't understand why the rush since it was the last thing on the itinerary and we could have had dinner there instead of getting back to our hotel (Belvidere ?) where there are no restaurants close by. Other than that, no complaints. The tour was as advertised, lots of stops made it easier to tolerate the drives between, the driver was top notch. And the meals for us Vegans were great.

    I really liked the tour, the only thing is i would have liked more time in florence as it felt rushed and the hotels to have better breakfast and the dinner in the rome colombo hotel was not great, other than that a great tour, thank you Peter!

    Excellent tour. Expat tours knows how to arrange a tour. Roma our tour guide was the best.. extremely knowledgeable, friendly, organized, calming... you name it she is the very best... if you do this tour make sure Roma is your guide...... Accommodations could be better but it’s a place to rest your head after a long day so just enjoy the overall experience and don’t get hung up on small things.... Roma we miss you... you made this trip extra special....

    Amazing experience! Beautiful places and found new friends. Didnt expect this much fun travelling all by myself. The only suggestion to make is for the coach to at least have taken us to attractions and not to take public transport. A lot of coaches took their tpurists to the attractions. Why cant Expat lessen the walking especially for seniors like us. In total its a very good tour. Im planning another trip thru Expat and this time to France. I just hope there is less walking!

    Excellent Tour! Roma was the best ever and very informative...I felt like it was a bit fast paced but I guess its expected with the amount of land to cover in such short time! Will recommend to everyone I know :-)

But those are minor issues in comparison of the whole experience!! You won't regret this trip!

    Taste of Italy was amazing. Roma, our tour leader was so knowledgeable and organised. Except for the hotel in Florence, the rest of the accommodation was great. I’d definitely do another tour with you
