Hi Romina,

Yes, everything went well and had a fabulous time.

Overall, the service of Ciao Tours was fabulous and will happily recommend both Ciao and yourself to anyone I come across who is looking to travel in Italy.

All of the guides – Sylvanna, Bernado (Bernie), Lisa, Thomas and Michael were all fabulous and shared so much knowledge about their respective cities.

Our heads were swimming with information after each stop.

The drivers were all great as well and was so nice to arrive in each city and have someone waiting to take us to our hotel.

Having the same driver, Enzo, for our entire time in Sorrento was nice as well. Was good to get to know him and really enjoyed our time with him.

Good Morning Ladies,

What a wonderful trip we had.  I had told Didi, each day we said “this is the best day ever”  and the next day we said the same!!

First of all Ciao took the headache out of the logistics of getting around in an unfamiliar place. I’ve planned many family vacations and this is the hardest part.

Next the tour guides……as you must know they are one of a kind.  Each one was unique.  They had wonderful personalities and their knowledge of their hometowns was amazing.  The back and forth conversations made this such a personal experience.

My son told me he learned more about food than he has until this point in life.  Considering that he is a Culinary student in HS that is a huge compliment.  We felt no stress at all, the tours just seemed to flow at our pace.I could really go on for pages and call out each person we interacted with. Even quite a few of our drivers were a wealth of information, driving from one spot to the next pointing out areas of interest and historical info.   They were all wonderful.  I kept thinking two cooking lessons was too much and was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong.  Each one was a totally different experience and I am thrilled we did both.  Both couples were warm and friendly and we learned so much.  It was so nice to sit and have lunch with Lisa & Paolo.  And Roberto and Elisabetta were so welcoming, what a beeautiful setting.

We did venture out on our own and felt totally safe in the areas of our hotels.  Even going outside of Bologna to the Manerisi Winery, which is a small family run business we had a wonderful tasting, that  I would highly recommend.

You can be sure that not only will I be recommending both of you ladies, we hope to visit again in the near future.

Thank you for helping us make this a vacation of a lifetime!!!!

Thanks again for all the help we truly enjoyed our vacation and you made it much easier on us.

We will be sure to recommend Ciao Tours to anyone we know heading to Italy and we hope one day to return.

All of the people you arranged for us from drivers to tour guides were fantastic.

We are happily waiting for our flight home with a lot of fond memories of Italy.

Thankyou a Ciao
