Emily,
Words will never be able to describe how thankful we are for you and Trips 2 Italy.

We honestly had the most incredible trip ever. Everything was perfect from start to finish. We know our trip wasn't the most simple to plan but you did it and exceeded our expectations.

We loved Italy so much it that we missed it the moment we left. Our tours were amazing, the hotels were charming, the transfers allowed us to feel safe and secure, and we truly indulged in the Italian culture.

We can't wait to go back we can never thank you enough.

Grazie mille!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jan, just want to thank you and Tommaso again for a fabulous trip!

The package you two put together for us was great and met all of our needs. The driver Salvatore was great and always on time. He went out of his way to help us get information about my grandfather in Alia. He is outstanding!

The tour guides were also all outstanding, very informative, answered our questions and were always on time! Each day went very smoothly! And we appreciated the additional perks/surprises you included for all of us!

Alia, the birthplace of my grandfather, was especially meaningful and emotional for my family. We met the locals and found my grandfather’s birth and baptismal records.

Our tastings and lunches were all great and delicious! And the hotel rooms were spacious and beautiful! Some had outstanding gardens!

Thanks again Jan for a wonderful and memorable trip we will always cherish!

Sue, Curtis and Mandy B.
Dear Jan,

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and patience with us during the planning of this trip and throughout the trip.

This was truly a trip of a lifetime. The itinerary was flawless.

Every request for activities were met. Yes, even Adam got some good beach time in Cefalu and Taormina.

The hotels were comfortable and centrally located. We walked to dinner each night and also enjoyed some night life which Mandy and Adam truly enjoyed. The guides were friendly, intelligent, extremely knowledgeable and proud of their respective areas.

We really have a clear understanding of our history and heritage due to their explanations. There wasn't a question these guides couldn't answer.

The men also enjoyed the naturalist tour guides for Mt. Etna. They took us to places in the land rovers that we could not have seen on a tour bus!!!

I have to send a shout out to our driver, Salvatore. He went above and beyond in Alia to help us with the language barrier. He was patient and so very helpful. Salvatore was also a great driver in some of those very tight areas.

Also, the winery tours in Marsala and Mt Etna area were superb! We managed to take a few bottles home!!!!

I could go on and on as there were so many special moments in this tour!!!!

Thanks again!!!

Sincerely,

Bob, Dorothy and Adam T.
Hi Jan:
I hope you are well. This is to thank you for our wonderful Sicily trip! We had a blast! Danny and I really enjoyed our stay in Rome and were able to visit major sites during our short visit.

Also, I was amazed at how our itinerary smoothly flowed during the time with our family members in Sicily! Our driver, Salvatore, all of our personal guides, and the sites were awesome!
You did a great job!

Thanks again!

Sincerely,

Christine I.

Emily,

Wow, what a fantastic trip.

The hotel and location were amazing. The transportation was great and all of the drivers were very knowledgeable and gave history lessons along the drives. The tour guide were amazing. The itinerary and touring suggestions were spot on for our pre-cruise visit to Rome.

Thanks again for everything and we will definitely be back in the future to plan another trip.

Allison & Joshua K. - Italy Honeymoon Venice, Florence, Amalfi Coast & Rome Vacation
Emily did an OUTSTANDING job planning the honeymoon of our dreams.

We were completely blown away by the organization and preparedness. This was our first time traveling to Europe and we felt so comfortable and at ease knowing everything was taken care of for us. When The few minor mishaps we had occurred, both our emails and phone calls were answered immediately and we felt so well taken care of. Our honeymoon was everything we could have asked for and more. We visited Venice, Florence, Sorrento, the Amalfi coast & Rome.

My husband and I agree our favorite excursions included the boat trip to Capri and the wine tasting in the Chianti region of Tuscany.

Every tour and tour guide we had was outstanding and I would truly give this company and every company they used a 5 star rating.

We could not have asked for a better honeymoon or an easier planning experience.

Thank you Emily and Trips 2 Italy for planning the trip of a lifetime!

Tommaso,
it was unbelievable,
I’ve never experienced services at this level before and I will never travel without it in the future.

Amazingly, when minor issues arose, my phone rang and I was told the driver was late due to traffic.
The tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and very well trained, the small groups or private tours were exceptional, especially walking past larger groups!
The food recommendations were perfect, not a bad meal. One recommendation would be to plot the restaurants on a map, in relation to the hotel would be helpful.
Having some meet you at every transfer holding a sign was a gift.

I will recommend you to everyone heading to Italy and will return my self in the near future!
Ciao.

Dear Tommaso,
Where to begin! Our Italian Honeymoon was one to remember for a lifetime!

You brought us to so many places all perfect in their own way. We were able to see the touristy and historical vibes of Venice, Rome, and the Vatican City but were also charmed by the Tuscan countryside and Florence as well as truly tasting Italy in Bologna.

Every detail of our trip from the guided tours to the free wine/champagne at every hotel and the restaurant recommendations was done with such care and thoughtfulness to making our trip absolutely perfect.

We wouldn't have wanted our trip planned by anyone else. Ciao e Grazie!

Emily,
Thank you so much for our unforgettable vacation! Everything followed the itinerary perfectly. Our private tour guides were spectacular!!
Very knowledgeable and super friendly. Transportation drivers were great and always on time. Hotels were perfect and centrally located and very easy for us to walk anywhere. My favorite was Florence - Tuscany(San Gimignano), we loved the wine tasting and lunch at the winery!

My husband and our kids enjoyed Rome the best. The Colosseum and the Roman Forum were spectacular! Francesca (our tour guide) was phenomenal!

Thank you so much for putting together this incredible trip for our family! So much more we want to see and will definitely be contacting you in the future!
Emily,

I have returned! I want to personally thank you, and the entire Trips2Italy Team for an unbelievable, once in a lifetime experience! Everything was wonderful….but, I did want to provide some feedback on my experiences.

Milan – Hotel was outstanding. I discovered an amazing restaurant that I would highly recommend….Il Solferino. Lake Como, despite being the off-season was one of the highlights of the trip. The funicular was well worth it.

Venice – Venice was mind-blowing! It was far more spectacular than I possibly imagined! The hotel was adequate. Everything is Venice was amazing.

Florence – The hotel was adequate. The trip to Pisa and the accompanying guided tour were well worth it.

Rome – The hotel was adequate. Rome was exceptional! So much to see and do! One of the highlights of the trip! The guides on my small group tours did an exceptional job at St. Peter’s Cathedral/Vatican Museum Tour and Ancient Rome Tour. Both guides were outstanding! I look forward to going back to Rome!

Naples – Hotel was very, very, very nice! I was not impressed by Naples! I did a self-guided tour of Pompeii…and, I would not recommend that. The commuter train to Pompeii was a mess. The Amalfi Coast was spectacular. I could not imagine taking a guided tour of the Amalfi Coast….the best part was exploring on my own! I made a point to experience Naples pizza….and, I would highly recommend Da Michele and Gino Sorbillo for the best pizza!

I think my take-aways from this trip are:

I realized I am 4-star hotel person. The lower star hotels were all adequate; however, my expectation was a little greater.
I really appreciated the personal touches you provided at each hotel (i.e. the birthday gift, bottle of wine, biscotti, etc.). These small gestures meant a lot…and, were greatly appreciated!
A non-stop flight to Milan would have been more convenient than a layover in Paris.
I know we spent quite a bit of time debating the use of a rental car in Naples for touring the Amalfi Coast. You shared your opinion of driving in Naples and on the Amalfi Coast were not recommended. After having done it….it was very easy and a much better way to see it than a guided tour! I appreciate you sharing your opinion and advising me; however, the biggest complication was locating and renting a car for my trip. In hindsight, I wish all of this had been coordinated by Trips2Italy in advance. I would recommend making it clear to customers the possible concerns….but, providing the service for them if they wish to do it.
One of the biggest advantages to this trip was that it was the off-season! I can’t imagine travelling to these same places during peak vacation season. I would definitely do the off-season again!

The pre-arranged transportation to/from the airports was a plus! It’s one less thing you need to think about!
We discussed it prior to my trip….but, I would have greatly preferred electronic documents (vouchers, hotels, etc.). At least having everything available electronically as a reference or as a backup would have been much easier!
I had never used a travel agency before…but, I am now a believer. Coordinating all of the details, the educational telephone call before the trip, etc.….were all an enormous advantage. I will definitely use Trips2Italy for my next trip to Italy. I only wish you did more than just Italy.

Overall, the trip was incredible. I look forward to visiting Venice and Rome again in the future…but, I would not need to visit the other locations again. Thank you very much for the outstanding job putting everything together.
Sincerely,

Michael B.
