Anonymous "We toured by ourselves. Cheap as chips but the sites were mostly highly over rated and more than a few Italians were only your friend because they wanted something from you. Italy was generally dirty and weeds everywhere. Pisa was the exception and well presented. We travel extensively and whilst there were some phenomenal historic buildings Italy is not a place we could recommend. Avoid Veni..."

    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!

    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 The Hotel Accommodation in Venice, Russott Hotel was pretty outdated.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... Read more

    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.

    • Carlos4th June 2018
      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
