This was a fantastic vacation thanks to this travel agency. Everything was better than expected, and if anything wasn't, the travel agency made it even better right away. Every stop on our trip was top notch with excellent local guides in each city, transportation and lodgings. The personal attention to detail is like none that I have even seen before. I highly recommend this company and look forward to another trip in the future.
This trip played out perfectly with a first stop in Venice. The water taxi arrival experience was outstanding (thank you to our agent) and the tour of the city with our guide was wonderful. We then went to Florence where our agent treated us to the best of the beautiful art this city offers. We also had dinner at Buca Mario which was out of this world. Florence ended with a night in a castle and a Truffle Hunt that was fun and delicious as they prepared a real home cooked meal at the end. Next stop was Siena where our guide introduced us to a small but very beautiful city. Our guide was fabulous and her way with people made us all feel like we lived there. She is a truly exceptional guide. Next stop was Rome where our guide proved to be an wonderful guide and came prepared with pictures and additional information to really help us dive into the ancient culture of this incredible city. The colosseum was awesome and our guide brought it to life for us. Rome also included a Segway tour in the evening and our guide was great, taking us to some unusual spots. Finally, we went to Sorrento to visit Pompeii and Capri. Pompeii was interesting but Capri was fantastic. Swimming in the Mediterranean was a special treat, the Blue Grotto and the beauty of the island.
The other very memorable thing was the food. In each city we were treated to at least one great meal, with special commendations to our guides who went out of their way to introduce us to the local cuisine. Delicious is an understatement.
Definitely with this travel agency, but I might try to be a bit more prepared for the options in each city. The guides were excellent and offered good advice on restaurants along with great tours of the key areas, but some of our other memories are the times when we just went somewhere different on our own. We were lucky each time, and I wonder if we could have planned these side trips in advance. Also, the Segway tour would have been better not doing the standard City Tour and that repeated much of what we had already seen. Our guide was able to shift it a bit and made it a really nice part of the vacation.
