    ap0logies for not answering sooner. I loved the tour and Isabella was magnificent as tour leader. She is so knowledgeable on Italian history etc. Unfortunately I had pneumonia by the time I got home and one eardrum burst after landing hence my late report. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the real Italy.

    Isabelle is an extraordinary tour guide. Nothing was too much for her and she made the experience so easy for us. We were first time travellers to Europe, and we found her to be extremely helpful. We loved stopping at the out of the way places. We also felt extremely safe with Fabio at the wheel. We were very lucky and also had Robbie along for the tour to learn from Isabelle. . We think that he is going to do very well as a tour guide. The only suggestion we would have is that we could finish the day a little earlier to give us time for more exploration of the towns. We understand that we would need to sacrifice other stops, so we’re not sure how that would work. Overall we absolutely loved our holiday!
