    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!

    This was our first time to Italy. It was really nice to see all all the cities/towns Italy has to offer. Wish we would have got more time in Florence. A full day was needed there. The Hotel Accommodation in Venice, Russott Hotel was pretty outdated. The tour guide Katy was excellent. Everything else on the trip went really smoothly. Would recommend.

    very good companionship and great driver (Ezio).. other travellers helpful and very friendly ...Wi-Fi access very poor at some accommodation and very frustrating- Luke was great guide and I would most definitely go on a tour again with him and Ezio ...maybe one that doesn't involve so much walking as this one did.. I really enjoyed it even if I could not participate in all activities.

    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.

    The tour was good. It delivered what it said it would - a taste of Italy. I would have preferred a little longer in some locations. My only complaint would be the amount of walking to get to a location; this left less time for exploring the town.

    Wasnt sure what to expect as a solo traveller, but after meeting our amazing tour leader Shabby who and the group I was so glad that I had chosen this trip. I saw places in Italy that I would never have been able to do on my own, from the historic of Rome to beautiful Venice to Pisa and more. The trip was well organised, I dindt have to worry about anything, had to just turn up and everything was taken care of. Our tour leader Shabby was amazing and made the whole experience even more entertaining with her funny stories, history ad the sheer knowledge of the place of where to eat and what to see and do in the free time. Highly recommended, in fact I have friends who have booked the tour, which I am so glad as I have no doubt they will have an equally fabulous experience. I made so many friends on the trip and will be using Expat Explore again!
