Group Tours

Due to the seriousness of COVID-19, Ciao Tours has decided not to offer large group tours for 2022. Below are samples of group tours that can be converted into semi-escorted and private tours.

Independent Tours

Enough cannot be said about how great Ciao Tours was in helping us to plan and manage our trip in Italy. Laura, Ali and the entire team were amazing. They helped us to organize our whole plan around the cities and towns that we wanted to visit, advised us on timing and the best ways to travel from place to place and then took care of all of the reservations, car rental and local tours. They also arranged some wonderful experiences for us to have along the way that really provided for some unique and memorable moments including a morning of truffle hunting and lovely lunch and wine tasting with Laura in Siena. Laura also checked in on us literally every day of the trip and we were provided with a very useful tour-book with all of our itinerary details, GPS information for driving and general guide tips for traveling around Italy. We would work with Ciao again in a heartbeat and you should too!

This was our second personalized tour arranged by Ciao. Everything happened as it should; hotels were wonderfully located, guides were prompt and knowledgeable and excursions were fantastic. Will definitely use them again.

My daughter and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Milan, organized by Ciao Tours. Rita and Ali worked closely with us to arrange an amazing itinerary and accommodated everything we wanted to experience. While in Milan, Laura, our on-site contact from Ciao Tours, kept in constant contact with us to confirm plans on our itinerary and to answer any questions we had. I am so grateful to the entire Ciao Tours team for making this first trip for my daughter abroad such a memorable and hassle-free experience and I would recommend Ciao Tours, without hesitation, to anyone who is planning a trip to Italy. Thanks again for everything Rita, Ali and Laura!!

We just finished our 2nd Ciao booked tour and we will soon be booking our 3rd. Our latest trip was memorial and met or exceeded most of our expectations, but fell short on several areas. Ciao does an excellent job overall but felt they needed to spend a little more time going over our expectations. If it’s your first trip you will be awed, if it’s your second you may have different expectations. They have a excellent support group in Italy, contacting you almost daily and a superb group of guides and drivers. My final suggestion is to think about what your travel expectations are, spend time discussing them with Ciao Tours and look forward to a life experience you will forever remember. Italy is an unbelievable country, filled with incredible sites, food and people.

​Everyone at Ciao Tours is great. My​ husband and I wanted to take a trip to Italy for our 50th wedding anniversary. We told Joanna and Ali what our interests were and what we wanted to do while we were in Italy. They put together a fantastic package for us. Joanna, Ali and Didi are very professional and were there for us whenever we had a concern. While we were in Italy Didi followed up with us to make sure everything was running smoothly. Our drivers were very informative, personable and we felt very safe as we were touring the Amalfi Coast! Our trip was fantastic! We highly recommend Ciao Tours!!…they are great!!

We have been using Ciao Tours for every trip to Italy (this past one was our 5th trip), and we found them because my sisters used them first. They are our “family” travel company!. We would never, ever plan a trip to Italy (and now Greece expansion coming soon) without the professionals at Ciao. Every citta’, albergo, agritourismo, wine tasting, cooking lesson, tour guide, and driver has been seamlessly perfect for our family. The staff at the home office is attentive and helpful whenever we have questions and there is always a “check in” from one of the Italy-based “Ciao ladies” when in country, so we never felt alone! They have also been extremely professional and flexible when circumstances change. 🙂 We cannot find words for the experiences we have had with Ciao, so suffice it to say that we will be with them again soon!

We had a fantastic trip to Italy arranged by Ciao Tours. All of the guides and drivers were knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Marco, in Sorrento went out of his way to give us a great experience. We had a fantastic time in Rome with Teresa. We had lots of fun with her and she even talked a guard into taking a picture of something for me that I wasn’t allowed to get close to and I wanted it for my teaching. That was a great surprise. But, as I said, every one of the drivers and guides are excellent. The hotels and their staffs were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely use Ciao again when we go back to Italy!

We booked a trip to Italy in 2021 with Ciao Tours. I cannot stress how fantastic this company is. We had a fabulous trip, and every detail was pre-arranged and well communicated. There is no way we could have seen the incredible sights and met the amazing people we did without Ciao Tours. We are already planning our next trip to Italy with Ciao!
