    This tour was fantastic! We saw a lot of Italy in a relatively short amount of time. Our tour leader was knowledgeable and gave good guidance throughout our trip. We will definitely be booking similar tours in the future.

    The tour gave us a taste of everything that we wanted to see in Italy. Our driver Giuseppe was fantastic, we didn’t have to worry about our belongings on the bus and he was a very safe driver. Our tour leader Shabby was awesome, she was knowledgeable, approachable, friendly and downright gorgeous. Both of them together made our tour so much more enjoyable. We would love to do another tour with Expats, provided we can have Giuseppe and Shabby with us.

    The tour was absolutely amazing!!!! Itinerary - amazing paced. Fast enough where you see alot but also gives you enough time in each location to truly soak it all in Transportation - our driver Giuseppe was awesome. We were never worried about safety. We also never had to worry about leaving our stuff on the bus while he was watching it. Accommodation and meals - most accomodations were good. 2 of the hotels were ok. Honestly if you are truly going to make the most of your trip you will not be spending time at the hotels anyway. We would get to the room, shower, change and go back out. Meals are good but dont expect a 5 star experience. You will get full. It will be decent. Its included so you save money. Guide - there are not enough words to describe Shabby. She is the true definition of an amazing guide. She always had an amazing attitude. Even when we had an incident with traffic which was clearly out of her control, she immediately made alternative arrangementd for the day and we were able to get to do and see everything on schedule. You can tell she has a true passion for the country and for being a tour leader. She is an amazing asset to Expat. On our last day, most of the group was crying during our goodbyes and I have never seen that with any other tour. She was able to bring together a group of very diverse people and truly make it feel like family. We hope Shabbs gets to do a different itinerary as we would love to travel with her again.

    The tour provided an opportunity to experience many parts of Italy. The tour guides that were prearranged were good. I was disappointed that we did not know about the closing of St. Peter’s Cathederal before choosing our tour of the Vatican (due to 60,000 altar servers having a Mass with the Pope). I cannot imagine that was not known by the guide ahead of time. If we had been aware of the closing we could have chosen an alternate tour of the Collesium or done exploring on our own. Lots of walking, but doable for all on our trip. I would have liked more time in many places especsince we had to sometimes walk 20 minutes just to get to a destination from where we were dropped off. We were typically given 2-2 1/2 hours but with the time it took to get to the destination and back to the bus it really only left about an hour 1 and a half. Overall we saw some incredible sights. Pompei was tops on my list along with the Almagest coast and Sorrento. We also met some wonderful people from around the globe on our bus trip.

    If you’re looking for a well-paced Trip that gets you all around Italy, choose this one. My wife & I went for our 10th Anniversary & it far exceeded our expectations. We were reluctant at first to try a tour group, but after reading some reviews we decided to go for it! We saw places that we didn’t even know we wanted to see. Vivien, our tour group leader/guide was absolutely phenomenal & we couldn’t have asked for a better trip. I highly recommend this tour. We will be using Expat again for sure.

The tour is fantastic value for money, given all breakfast and some dinners are also included, and perfect for a first timer Italy as you get plenty of tips on how to be courteous and navigate Italy as a tourist from the tour guide.

    One of the best tours I've ever been on. Our tour guide vivienne is probably the best tour guide we've ever had the pleasure to travel with. Cannot recommend her, our driver Giuseppe and this tour enough. You don't pay a premium so dont expect to be coached absolutely everywhere but the public transportation requirements was only on occasion and added to the adventure. Thank you Expat Explore.
