Ciao Arlene, Romina, e Didi!

Simao a Bari, stanchi e Sani! Abbiamo restituito la machina, e quests sera andiamo fare la pizza con Silvia!

Vi ringraziamo tanto tanto per il nostro bel viaggio.

Okay, enough of that!

We want to thank you Arlene first of all….and Romina and Didi!   You did a great job on our trip.

Right from the beginning we had confidence in all of you.   You proved us right. We really have no complaints whatsoever. Everything was so well planned and our itinerary booklet was fabulous!

The hotels were excellent ( except for room 136 at Taormina!)

Your guides were fabulous! They were on time, accommodating, intelligent, and very interesting and helpful.

We are now in our room at le Nazioni with a marvellous view of old Bari and the ocean! What more do we need.

Arlene, would recommend your Ciao Tours to anyone at all, really.   And I’m happy to be travelling with your help and your teams’ help again next spring.

Ciao for now, and again, GRAZIE TANTO!

Hi Arlene, sorry we haven’t replied yet!

We have done a lot of travel around the world, but this was hands-down the best trip we’ve had in our lives.

To be honest, at first, I was a little hesitant about having private drivers, private tours, and everything organized by a third-party, we have never done that before.

I have to say, it was worth every penny and more. There were no headaches or worries, no concerns about getting ripped off for getting lost.

The itinerary, duration of stay, areas visited, tours, accommodations, everything was perfect.  We really don’t have any constructive criticisms, everything was so organized and clear.

We have been spoiled for all future travel!  We have already highly recommended your service to close friends and family, and will continue to do so.  Grazie mille!!!

Good morning Arlene,

Sorry for the late response, just wanted to let you know we had a great holiday overall.

Many highlights for us! I think if I ever go back which I know I will, I will have a day or two in Venice without tours just to get sleep and get your bearings.

Thanks again for everything the memories will never leave me! Tara and I both said what an incredible trip. Wish we were still there!

Hello Romina!

We had a wonderful time!  We were very happy with the service from Ciao tours. Our hotels were amazing, everything very organized. We really enjoyed our wine tour and cooking class, probably our favourite days. 

This trip did start off a bit rocking with our transfer to Rome and almost missing our train but we made it with literally seconds to spare haha!  Cliff had a problem with a faulty Segway that he spoke to Laura about and she mentioned a possible refund on that tour?  

All in all we would highly recommend your service to any of our friends and family. I will send a few photos.  We even found the cashmere shops in Florence and I came home with a beautiful scarf. 

Thank you for all of your hard work and thorough service. I really enjoyed working with you.
