Over the past 20 years Ciao Tours has built a reputation as a boutique Tour Operator specializing solely in Italy. “Do what you know how to do, and do it well!” This team of Canadian and Italian women has been together for many years because Italy, and Canada, is where we live and raise our families. We have succeeded in Italy by building relationships based on trust and dedication, which in turn makes our clients experience in Italy the very best!

Hi Arlene,

Giuseppina and I would like to thank Ciao Tours and all their staff and all drivers and guides as this was our best vacation we both have taken and we have travelled extensive over the years.

Why did we wait so long to visit Europe? Well we won’t wait long as we are starting to plan our next trip very shortly.

Everyone we come into contact with was welcoming, understanding and always accommodating to us, we never felt out of place and learned so much about many new things.

From Josie and myself, thank you again for a great tour experience.

Hi Arlene,

My family & I had an amazing trip and that is in large part to the perfect execution of our itinerary by Ciao Tours.

Your company met every detail of out itinerary without one hiccup.

The reliability of all the info you supplied to me was exactly what happened in reality. The Tour guides in all our cities were amazing. Each of them, in their own way made visiting the tour sites so interesting and were so educational but in an engaging way. My family learned so much and enjoyed seeing so many world renowned historical sites.

Our trip was stress free b/c all the details were taken care of by your company. I will definitely recommend your Tour Company to everyone I know.

Thank you for taking such good care of me and my family.

Arlene, We had a fantastic time!

Everything went smoothly with all the drivers, guides, and hotels. Rome was great and the itinerary you mapped out ran without any glitches.

The drivers and guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable.

Our only problem was the airline strike in Italy. Thanks to Laura notifying us, we were able to work out  an alternative flight before going to the airport and being stuck. Laura was fantastic throughout our stay in Italy! We were in contact from day one, and she checked with me each day to make sure everything was right. She was especially helpful that last day to alert us of the flight situation and arrange transportation the next day! Having Laura there in Italy was not only great piece of mind, but as it turned out, essential to us to facilitate our return home!

Ciao tours did a fantastic job!

We thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday for us.

We have already recommended you to many friends and hope they will use your services too!

Until next time!
