Cindy and Tom Mellings - We had a wonderful trip, thank you. Everything Ciao Tours planned for us in Venice was superb. We loved the hotel and its location, our tour with Silvana was great and left us wanting more so I would probably say we could have done another 3 hour tour on our last day because there are just so many hidden treasures to discover! And Silvana is very knowledgeable – it was a pleasure to meet her. read more
Anna & Peter Stys - Incredible holiday! Thank you so much for arranging such a fabulous tour of Italy! The tours, the transportation and all the events were incredibly well organized; everything fell into place flawlessly. The guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic; they were flexible, making our tours personalized and tailored to our interests. We had so little time in Italy, but you made the very most of every minute we had. It will be a trip we will never forget. We highly recommend Ciao Tours to anyone who wishes to experience Italy in a most unique and exceptionally enjoyable way. read more
Terry Kellam & Michael Gelmon - We have returned from our trip to Italy and want to thank you and your team for the spectacular trip you all planned for us. We turned to you on the strong recommendation of my parents, whose experience a few years ago was similarly excellent. The trip, as laid out by Ciao Tours, allowed us to experience things we never would have otherwise experienced. The wine tour and lunch in Chianti region at Castelnuovo Berardenga stood out as a real highlight for us, but there were so many other experiences that enriched our tour, they're simply too numerous for us to mention. The accommodations were all outstanding, the tours excellently organized and conducted by knowledgeable professionals, and the logistics of the travel from location to location all were outstanding. Thanks once again for pulling together such a superb trip for us. read more
Bourdon family - The trip was fabulous thank you. You made it very easy to get around the instructions were great. The Apartment in Venice was beautiful, the breakfasts were wonderful, location was great and they cleaned the room everyday! Hotel in Florence was also great in all regards. Apartment in Rome was perfect, very conveniently located near a coop. The tours you recommended were good, we especially loved Lucca. All the guides and drivers were terrific and very helpful. Several of them said they appreciate working for you. Our guide in Rome, Antonella was exceptional and very helpful. She gave us great transit info so we never took a taxi once. She read us very well and showed us exactly what we wanted. read more
Ross Bentley & Laurie Robson - I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Ciao for all your help with our trip to Italy. My experience was limited to the last few days and principally with the walking tours but as per our last trip with you to Italy everything was fantastic. I‘ve coped Laurie in case she had anything to note but I would specifically say that I found the tours with Giovanni absolutely exceptional. read more
Jolene and Jeff Senn -Thank you and all of your staff for organizing such a lovely trip! We enjoyed every minute of it. The private tours (and the guides) were exceptional. We truly appreciated how much more we learned and saw with the private tours. read more
Jean and Leighton Miller - I would highly recommend Ciao to others because of your attention to detail, your follow-up (through Didi) in Italy, and the quality of your guides. We can see you have built a strong relationship with them: several commented that they love working with you and one noted she appreciated that you come to Italy every couple of years or so. Their knowledge is fantastic and they seem to be well respected in the tourism industry (based on how they interacted with people in different venues).read more
Sherry Rooks, Travel Plus - Hi Arlene! Just wanted to thank you for everything you and your staff did for my clients. They were in today and raved about the trip. She said everything was perfect and there wasn’t one thing she could find fault with. My client said the cooking lesson was fantastic..in fact everything was. read more
