Great Tour, Great off season price. Great weather and less crowded. We saw a lot in one week! Thank you

By William M on Nov 25, 2018

The tour package offered by Globus was very well put together and everything was very much to my satisfaction.

By Dawnell W on Mar 04, 2018

Our Italian Escape 2018 trip exceeded our expectations. Silvio, our local travel guide was personable, highly knowledgeable and extremely helpful in ensuring that all of the group's needs were met. Sandro, our driver was very professional and courteous and our vehicle very well maintained. Our accommodations were to our expectations and in great locations which allowed us to go for walks during the evenings. Our travel guides at all sightseeing locations were also highly knowledgeable and passionate about their subject matter. We highly recommend the optional tours and meals offered as they are all well worth it. We were able to visit every site we were interested in and then some. Just a warning to those that may have mobility issues, there is a lot of walking, stairs (some difficult) and uneven surfaces. If you want a worry free trip where everything is taken care of down to the last detail, this is it...a true vacation. Upon arrival, we were met at the airport in Rome by a guide and transported to our hotel where we were met by our travel guide who remained with us throughout the week. On our last day, we were picked up by water taxi at our hotel in Venice and taken to the airport where we were met by another guide who ensured we received our boarding passes and checked in our luggage. Looking forward to our next trip!!!
