We had a great trip. Your company did a great job.

Very pleased. 

The guides were first class all the way.

Hi Arlene!

Had a great time n everything was very well organized.

The driver in Milan’s the best (that’s why we kept asking for him).

Bernie and Valentina were also great.

Your team did a great job. Especially got to thank Didi who’s attended to everything perfectly.

Only thing we didn’t enjoy as much was the hotel in Milan. Apart from the night when we were upgraded, the other rooms were too small. Next time we’ll definitely get the 5* hotels instead.

All in all a very enjoyable trip. There’s still a lot of Italy we haven’t explored yet so we shall return.

Will definitely contact you again for our next trip and also spread the word about your agency.

Thanks again to you and the team.

It was an absolute pleasure from beginning to end. 

We really felt taken care of and felt we received great local insight from the guides wherever we went.

Hotels were great, enjoyed the proximity to key sightseeing.

The only thing that went slightly wrong is we got off at the wrong Venice train stop.  It would be good to point out that there are actually two Venice stops.  I guess I was feeling a little too comfortable or  “handled”!   : ) I rectified the problem quickly, but we probably lost and hour.  Not a big deal.

Also, you have a big list of restaurants….would’ve liked your top 3 recommendations, denoted by stars.

Your tour book was very helpful and thorough!

Thanks again!

Thank You Ciao Tours for another wonderful, well-organized tour in Italy!

Our drivers were excellent-friendly, helpful and very skilled-Matteo Suti, our driver for three days while based in Montepulicano was exceptional. He was a traffic guide as well as an excellent driver and certainly went above and beyond. He showed us some special places that were not on the itinerary but he fit them in as time permitted.

And our Guides (except for Vinci) were wonderful! We learned so much from them and enjoyed their company immensely!

The apartments in both Montepulicano and Lucca were really good and the contact people unbelievably helpful!

But the Icing on the cake was out stop in Siena and to visit with Alessandra and having lunch, compliments of ciao Tours. As the expression goes, that was the Piece de resistance!!. The food and service at the restaurant were excellent (thank you again ) the visit with Alessandra was very special to us all-she is a real gem!!

Honestly, we could not have asked for more from this trip. But, of course, non of this would have been possible without Ciao Tours and their excellent, hands-on team.

Thank you, Arlene, Alessandra and all the team at Ciao Tours for making our return trip to Tuscany, an amazing experience!!!

Grazie Mille!!
