Our Italy travel company organised a 12 day trip for us throughout Italy. When we were first looking at this trip we received various proposals from different companies based on our suggested itinerary. This company was by far the most comprehensive, best value for money and most helpful. Apart from this what definitely sealed the deal was the fact that at our first destination a package would be waiting for us that included a mobile phone. This allowed us to contact them at any time if we had any questions, to allow us to Google addresses and especially if we arrived at a destination and the pre-organised guide or driver didn’t show up. After the trip was planned I even asked them further questions about accommodation before we arrived in Italy and this was no problem for them to refer and book as well.
Now that sadly our trip is over I have nothing but praise for this company and our agent. We had other goodies waiting for us in our welcome package apart from the phone which was a lovely surprise. Our agent phoned us occasionally to see how everything was coming along and all the accommodation, transfers, drivers, tour guides and experiences were on-time and of the highest calibre. If we were organising this ourselves I would never have thought of doing something like a Perfume Masterclass in Florence. But it was a great idea and so much fun to do. We came home with our own unique fragrance. I had visited some of the sites before but doing them with a private, experienced guide was amazing. How many people can say they saw Ostia Antica with someone that spent 5 years doing archaeological digs there and that some of the pieces she discovered are in the Museum! Also to have a driver that will answer all your crazy questions as you go along and know the answers makes the trip so much more memorable.
