Good Morning,
Before I forget I just wanted to let you know that my clients LOVED their trip and especially their days in wine country and their private transfers stopping in Assisi. All the drivers and guides were very knowledgeable and fun. They enjoyed the private tours and drivers and said that is how they want to travel in the future!

They absolutely loved your restaurant recommendations especially the one in Venice as they offered the husband a sweater as they got rained on pretty bad and the owner and family danced and sang in the aisles. Thank you for helping put the dinners together!

The only really constructive feedback they mentioned was that they didn't get to see the catacombs in the Vatican below as it was closed before the guide was done with the main part of the church. They would have rather missed some explanations of the art pieces to be able to see that.

These again are just very minor remarks as they loved everything, I just thought I would share with you their feedback

Thank you again for your help and I hope we get a chance to work together in the future. I also gave your information to other agents within my host agency so expect to get some emails.
Thanks

Tommaso and his colleagues are a top notch team of travel experts who assisted us in living an amazing Italian adventure. Over the course of the 7 days we spent our time well with the activities helpfully honed by Tommaso tailoring exactly what was needed to make out experience a memorable and well spent time abroad. His inclusions to experiences we asked about and some we'd never have known about were thoughtfully planned out and required zero effort on our part to make it happen. Tommaso and his team took care of every detail for us, the relief of the stress in planning being removed was the best part of the service of Trips2Italy. The professionalism of what was going on behind the scenes is thoroughly appreciated and not overlooked. We'd use their assistance the next time we go to Italy for sure.

A sure highlight of the trip was the train ride into the Swiss alps aboard the Bernini Express up to St Moritz, Switzerland. Literally hanging out of the window with camera in hand, a bad photograph quite simply could not be taken. The scenery and experience overall was breathtaking. Other key highlights were the private tours of the 2 main cities we decided to stay in. Group tours are convenient but when it comes to really getting a tailored experience having Tommaso and his team compile private tours of the two main cities we travelled to was a once in a lifetime experience. We can't give enough praise to his team for allowing us to have a wonderful time with no worry as to how or where things would come together.... they thought of it all. The most amazing highlight was unplanned and totally unexpected. Tommaso and his team made available a bottle of prosecco and bowl of olives to help me celebrate my 50th Birthday, sent up by the hotel we stayed at and quite literally left me speechless. The thoughtful and kind gesture was what separates a company like Trips2Italy from any we have encountered before.

I can't think of anything we'd do differently for that particular trip but with Tommaso and his team at our backs, I can imagine there are many adventures left to be had that are new and exciting. There are no regrets or what if's, this trip was exactly what we needed to recharge our inner batteries and look forward to our next adventure.

Wow, what can I say.......Our trip to the Amalfi Coast and Rome was flawless and Tomasso De Poi owner of Trips2Italy and his staff exceeded our expectations.
When I contacted him almost a year ago, I wanted to get a good overview of both areas as this was our first time in Italy however, I just wanted to show up and not have to do any of the planning. That is exactly what happen!!! His thorough planning and attention to detail afforded us the opportunity to really experience Italy; the tastes, texture and vibe of each area visited.
The car services,transfers, guides, hotel choices, & flight scheduling and personal consultation with Tomasso prior to our trip were all on point. Staying in locations centrally located was fantastic.

The level of professionalism, knowledge and friendliness from the collaborators he selected could not have done a better job. Dino our driver in the Amalfi Coast was awesome showing us Ravello, Amalfi, & Poisitano. He knew all the alternative routes to maximize the time spent in each location-5 stars Dino!!! Michele Arpa and our driver John Franco and Katherine on the second day were amazing. Great energy,showed us all the sights, sounds and tastes of Naples and Pompei. Michele is a walking encyclopedia on the history of the Naples and Pompeii.... Then came Roma... For the Colosseum Vatican & Roman Forum tours, Grace was amazing....Obviously loves what she does, fun to be with and passionate about the history of her amazing city... .The food tour at Trastervere was the icing on the cake.. All locally own restaurants that love what they do and love having happy patrons.

It is really hard to isolate our favorite or memorable part of our trip......but the following were really special: We had a beautiful day for the boat ride to Capri, Pompeii was mind blowing, we could have spent the whole day there. The overall beauty of the Amalfi Coast while driving on the coastal road took our breathe away and we were all in awe of the Colosseum and St Peters Basilica.

We would add two more days, one extra day on the Amalfi Coast to tour an Olive Oil, Limoncello or Pottery facility and have an additional day in Rome to just play.

We just returned from a 2 week trip to Sicily planned to perfection by Tommaso and his team at Trips2Italy. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed every aspect of our trip. The Trips2Italy team did not miss a beat. Hotels, guides, drivers, locations, meals, special side trips - virtually everything that they planned and executed exceeded our expectation. Sicily is a wonderful vacation destination and Trips2Italy made our trip to Sicily extraordinary. Ciao!
I cannot say enough about Tommaso and our recent trip.

If I could give him 100 stars, I would. Our vacation to Italy was perfectly customized towards the romance we were hoping to find on our 25th wedding anniversary. It seems as though Tommaso thought of everything. In each city, the details and logistics of travel and hotels, tours and suggestions were perfectly organized.

We did not have to think of anything other than the beauty and splendor that surrounded us in this beautiful country. We were just able to get lost there, knowing everything was taken care of. No lines, no fuss, no confusion. From the shopping in Rome to the ruins of Pompeii, the food tour of Bologna to the unparalleled countryside of Tuscany...each site holds its own special, precious, memory in our hearts. I highly recommend Trips 2 Italy to anyone.

They are very professional and accommodating, and the relief of knowing everything was planned and coordinated was worth its weight in gold and made for a very special and unforgettable trip.
For us, this was the trip of a lifetime. From the moment we began the planning, Emily thought of everything. All our connections were perfect. The hotels had such Italian flavor. The tours were wonderful. As promised, the food tours were our favorites. Will be talking about this vacation . . . until the next one - which I hope will be soon.

Buongiorno Tommaso
What took us so long!!??
When we first met with Trips2Italy we brought a list of places and things we would like to do and see. You guys definitely met those expectations!

To begin, the photo posted is from our hotel balcony in Padula overlooking Sassano! It was breathtaking and certainly away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities.We started our trip in the small town of Sassano with our genealogist who was able to find family records dating back to the early 1800's. He worked efficiently and with enthusiasm.

For this we thank you Tommaso!

We visited five towns/cities in all with several side tours in all stops. Between food tours, museum tours, boat tours, our audience with the Pope and bus tours, our days were filled. All of our hotels were excellent, both in location and service.

Tommaso, thank you and everyone working with Trips2Italy for putting together our dream vacation.We will definitely be returning!

Mike and Barbara B.
WOW! What a trip!!!Bellagio, Torino, Milano, Mantova, Bologna, Modena, Verona, Vicenza, Venecia, Roma - and points in between.We will remember the month of September 2018 for a long, long time.Thank you Tommaso, Giulia, and both Ana's
Our honeymoon was in one word...fantastic!

Working with Trips 2 Italy was amazing. You put together a fantastic itinerary for us and every detail was accounted for, making our trip stress free and completely organized.
We did a great deal on our honeymoon and traveled from Lake Como/Bellagio to Florence/Tuscany, and finally Rome. Each experience was uniquely different and all perfectly crafted. We loved the high touch of communication of the Trips 2 Italy staff before we traveled. They truly spent a great deal of time educating us before we left for our trip which made all the difference in the world. We will absolutely be using you again when we return to Italy in the future.

The entire Trips 2 Italy team, your partners, and the trip were all nothing short of stellar!

Lake Como was our "favorite" part of the trip. It was beyond beautiful and we had a gorgeous hotel perfectly situated on the lake. It allowed us after a busy few months with the wedding to relax, enjoy the country, and just enjoy the beauty of Italy. That said, Florence/Tuscany were a strong runner up. We had the best tour guides in each city that made our tours meaningful and we learned so much. The food was fabulous and the tours expertly run. We certainly made special memories in each location. Rome was also a great experience and we took away exactly what we were hoping for in once in a lifetime opportunities.

Our trip was amazing and where TJ and I both agree we would not change any of it, we both think that next time (depending on where we go) there are two things we would consider doing differently. The first would be only direct flights. We connected on the way to Italy and it made the travel so much longer. Overall, the travel experience with the airlines was smooth but it added a great deal of time to travel to Italy. That said, we only had the option for connecting flights out of Boston so we might reroute ourselves next time to fly direct. Secondly, for any trip over a week, we will book hotels that offer spa and fitness services. We both agree if we are going to be away from home more than a week these are important to us. We had these services available at our first hotel in Lake Como and it was wonderful! It simply allowed us when we want to take a break and come back to the hotel to relax to have some options besides sitting in our room.

Your lake was our favorite part! Wishing you a wonderful fall and thank you again for planning the trip of a lifetime for us.
Our Best,

Erin & TJ
Dear Tommaso,

Jim and I really enjoyed out trip. Thanks for directing us to some of the places we might not have gone to. We thought all the guides were well informed and the drivers all on time and helpful. I cannot pick just one favorite place because they were all great. It was glad to see Cinque Terra and that area never having been before. The wine tasting were all very good and the Trastevere food tour was alot of fun. I think Jim had wished we had planned more "down" time but he has never been on a trip like this before. I know I wanted to see as much as I could while I was there.
I am looking forward to putting together a shutterfly book. Kathy and Tommy got some really great shots. Several people have asked about our trip and I have told them to contact you. Thanks for everything.

We absolutely loved our Italian vacation planned by Trips 2 Italy . Every detail was executed to perfection. From the questionnaire that we initially filled out to the flight home. Tommaso and his team listened to what we wanted to do and filled in the rest of the blanks. The result was an experience of a lifetime. We couldn’t imagine planning another trip to Italy without them and their expertise.

We now know that Italy is not just one country, but many. Each region has its own diverse culture. Wine, food, people, scenery, history and believe it or not...the sky. All combined you have Bella Italia. Our trip included a number of regions. We experienced boat trips, cooking classes, wine tours, food tours and so much more. Opera in Verona, stunning Lake Como (don’t miss this jewel), beaches, history and of course the people. So many pinch me and breathtaking moments. Words can’t describe and pictures only tell a part of the story. You just have to go. We can’t wait to go back. The team at Trips 2 Italy planned the perfect holiday for us and we can’t thank them enough.

How can you improve on perfection?

Fabulous! Fantastic! Unforgettable!

This was a 40th anniversary present to ourselves. We could not be happier with the outcome. Tommaso and his team ( Ana especially) were unbelievable. We knew we wanted to visit Italy for the food, wine, culture, history, music and art but were not sure how to accomplish our dream.

We knew from our first conversation with Tommaso that we had someone who was passionate about his country and his clients. We must have gone through 6 or 7 itineraries before deciding on the final version. Throughout the process Tommaso was kind, thoughtful and most importantly patient. His recommendations for when and when not to upgrade were spot on.

We had food tours and a wine tour (that included delicious food). On our last food tour the taxi dropped us at an incorrect location. We called the emergency number and they were already aware of our situation. It was a small group tour and they had already left. The guide was in communication with Trips 2 Italy. We were directed whre to find the group. We found them and had a fantastic tour! Service above and beyond!!

Renting a car and driving from Treviso to Cortina d'Ampezzo was so fun! The Dolomites are breathtaking. We were lived and were married in Colorado and visit friends there regularly. Cortina is no less spectacular if not more so.

Verona was a gem! The Arena, Duomo, Giardino Giusti and of course the balcony of Giullietta.

Toscana/Florence. Cradle of the Renaissance. Michaelangelo, Leonardo, Machiavelli, Botticelli, Rafffaello...all neighbors...what more can you say?

And in between...Lake Misurina, Paso Giau, Mantova, Bologna, San Gimignano, Chianti and Sieana.

The guides gave you a splendid history and background and lots of information to explore on you own.

The restaurant recommendations and places to visit were excellent. And we managed to find some outstanding places and restaurants on our own. I think this is by design....right Tommaso? We would make the trip three times as long!
