This was an amazing trip, definitely more than we expected it to be. The travel director was amazing making everyone feel heard and tended to everyones needs. The itinerary was busy but without a doubt it was a Grand Experience of Italy, a great first introduction if you never have been and it allows you to see the big sights so when you plan on coming back you know what you want to do more or less of. The best trip by far I have done with Trafalgar.

The entire trip was great, we've cruised over 70 times and 5 bus trips . This was an exceptional trip. Our tour director was the best ever. He went above and beyond.

Our Trafalgar tour to Italy was excellent and worth the wait after having to postpone in both 2020 and 2021. It is a well planned trip with a wide variety of experiences and activities. The tour director, well being coordinator and driver were all very professional and friendly. Very patient in handling the variety of personalities and mobility limitations of some of our fellow travelers. I will travel with them again very soon,

Tour was very interesting and intense. We visited Italy from south to north and from west to east. Had visited a lot of beautiful places, met a lot of knowledgeable tour guides. Tried local food and wine. Our tour director was excellent and very caring, so was our driver. Some days of tour were physically demanding: a lot of walking up and down hills and stairs, which was hard on some people in the group. Hotels, especially in Rome were located on outskirts of city which limited our experience to visit city on our own.

This was an incredible experience! We were so pleased and so appreciative of Trafalgar doing all the planning. We consider Trafalgar tours to offer real value for the price. We loved all the teaching, learning, and funny stories!

Our tour guide and driver where fantastic. Places we visited where amazing. Some of the hotels where below expectations. Some where vary runned down and had mold and mildew. Walls had peeling wall paper and dirty.
