Dear Arlene,

The short story is that we had an absolutely fabulous trip to Italy.  We could not be more pleased with Ciao Tours and the way our trip together and the consistent follow up provided by Claudia during our trip.  She is absolutely fantastic and a lovely person.

The guides exhibited tremendous knowledge of each of their respective cities.  One common trait between each of the guides was that we felt like each of their tours was their first one; they give the same tour to different parties day after day but do not lose their enthusiasm or pride for their cities.

Thank you.

Hi Arlene,

Thank you for checking in – yes we did have an amazing, wonderful time in Italy!!

Thank you to you and your team for putting together this fabulous trip for us!

Honestly, everything went off without a hitch.  Laura was in constant communication to confirm pickup times and answer questions.  The accommodations were great.

The tour guides were absolutely top notch!  You could tell that they have a passion for history and the culture and they gave us so much information and brought everything we saw to life.  We especially enjoyed our time with Luca in Florence.

It was a amazing memory to last our entire lives.

Thank you so much.

Hello Arlene, Didi, Claudia and Romina!

I’m hoping that all the gals have by now sent you their feedback!   They assured me they would!

By all accounts, it was a magical trip indeed!   We all still talk about it as one of the best of the seven trips we have done together! 

I think the consensus is that Soprabolzano and Rosa dei Venti both get a 10!

But, the rest of the trip was fabulous also.   But, it seemed that those two places, were the most restful and peaceful.

Thanks to ciao tours they were strategically placed after lots of busy times before and after.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely and laughed a lot amongst ourselves and with our guides and drivers, and of course we ate wonderful food.

Even though they all said they did not want a cooking lesson, the morning with Barbara and her mom, and then the whole family still brings a smile to all of us!

Thank you again to all of you!  I have passed your name on many times!  I will not hesitate to recommend ciao tours!

Be well, and ciao belle,
