    I have a slight disability that I use a walker.. There should be an option for those that are not fit enough to allow them to see more. There is too much walking. The use of public transport should be provided as an option. I had to pay for taxis to get... Show more

    The tour was to fast passed to really enjoy what you were seeing. The Northern part of Italy would have been better if you had time to actually see some of the sights that we just talked about or walked past. It was to hot and on the run. I enjoyed... Show more

    Enjoyed the tour very much, wished we could have stayed longer in a few places as I didn't get to see as much as I had planned. Sometimes we felt a bit rushed. The included meals were good ( all breakfasts were great) with the exception of the two... Show more

    Tour itinerary was excellent as was our guide Marysol and our driver Dominic. These three made this tour really really great. It should be mentioned that this kind of tour requires a lot of stamina from participants because of tight schedule. Hop on the... Show more

    Our tour leader Marysol was excellent. Over all experience was good, but some of the hotels I was not very happy with the room I had, for paying so much of a high single supplement. Also would have liked a little more time in some of the popular places... Show more
