Firstly, the initial planning process could not have been easier. The travel agent was helpful and attentive. There were no barriers or complications erected, he simply listened to our desires and found ways to get it done. The whole trip went off like clockwork. There were a couple of minor snags, but nothing that delayed or interfered with our plans. Everything promised by the travel agency was delivered. We stayed in Venice, Florence, Rapallo, Stresa and Interlaken over a 16 day period. All the hotels were as expected, the transfers and side trips went off without delays or complications. This was something of a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us and although expensive, was stress-free and completely enjoyable. We also appreciated the last minute free upgrades to our Rapallo hotel and VIP tour in Stresa. All in all a memorable and thoroughly satisfying outing.
Among our favourite experiences are: The initial boat ride to our hotel in Venice was truly magical as was the musical gondola ride. Our trip to the Dolomites was breathtaking, and thanks to our driver/guide, was also great fun and an up close and personal experience. We really enjoyed our time in Liguria and had many thrilling experiences driving our rental car up and down the hills and alleys. The Borromeo Islands tour in Stresa stretched from the scheduled five hours to nearly eight and we enjoyed every bit of it. All the guides were very personable and friendly. They seemed truly happy to be sharing their cities and landmarks with us. And of course visiting Jungfraujoch where we got to flaunt our Canadian hardiness by being in t-shirts while travellers from warmer climates shivered in jackets, gloves and knit hats. All great fun!
Obviously if we did it again we would want to experience different things. As far as wishing we had done things differently, I don't think there is much we would have changed. Perhaps a later return flight... getting up at 4 am was not much fun.
