To anyone worried about working with a long-distance travel agency...especially when it comes to payments, believe me, we're glad we chose this travel company over a pre-packaged bus tour. In addition to scheduling tours, we asked our travel company for transfers to and from every mode of transportation and someone was there for us at every juncture. They were never late, and all the tours, activities and hotels our travel agent recommended were worthwhile. This truly was the trip of a lifetime.
The only possible negatives were well beyond their control --- be aware that during early September (at least) there were tons of tourists in Venice, Florence and Siena. We were very glad that the travel company suggested private drivers or the train in most cities -- in general Italian streets are incredibly narrow and traffic is really confusing. Ciao!
A highlight of our trip was driving ourselves in Tuscany and the really awesome car that our travel agent had reserved for us. Getting out of (and back to) the Florence airport was a bit harrowing but Tuscany was amazing and we stayed in a real working castle that we'd never have found on our own. Tuscany is gorgeous country and if we return to Italy it will be to that region.
We'd return to Tuscany in a heartbeat. Now that we've been to the major cities we'd skip those and head back to Tuscany for more wine tasting and more castle visits.
