12-day Venice, Florence, Rome, Amalfi Coast Escorted Tour
“Back to Reality”. I truly want to thank you for answering all my many nagging questions prior to the trip. Your helpness made all my prior unknowns a lot easier. From the beginning, you have shown me not only professionalism but also friendliness. I am so grateful to you for helping me to accomplish a lifetime memory.
My trip was exceptional, beyond my expectations, well informative, and a lot of laughs. I would highly recommended you for all future trips. It was a pleasure.
Enjoy the day.
My son & I got back yesterday from the 8-day Rome & Southern Italy tour. I can’t even begin to describe how fantastic this tour was. Our main tour guide was Daniella (Dani) & we also had Suzannah in Rome. Daniella became a friend to all of us. She explained every detail of the tour and we were amazed at how she handled everything so easily. Suzannah was so informative & funny through the Colosseum & Vatican Museum tour.
We were trying to think of how we all would be able to describe everything we saw. It’s almost impossible. Breathtaking comes to mind.
If anyone was thinking about booking a tour with you, think no more. Everything was above & beyond our expectations. If I am lucky enough to go again…..this time much longer….I would request Dani & Suzannah in a heartbeat.
Thank you, Justin, for making a dream become a reality.

Just thought I would let you know we had a wonderful time on
our Vacation to Venice Florence and Rome. Everything was over
the top. Our tour guide never missed a beat. His name was Martin

dinners were awesome the hotels were all we could ever ask for.
The tours were really great never having to wait in any lines.
Honestly there is not one bad thing I could say about this trip
and would highly recommend this trip to everyone.
Thank you for all of your time.

12-Day Venice, Florence, Rome, Sorrento Italy Tour
WOW,! This trip is everything and more than l expected. Our guide Suzy Caracciolo is fantastic. I can’t tell you what an enjoyable experience this is. Having a knowledgeable guide with you to break the language barrier and get you to and through the tourist destinations is an incredible service. We are whisked right by the lines into all the fabulous must see sights along the tour. Thank you for all you did to make this vacation so stress free and relaxing.

12-Day Rome, Florence, Venice, Sorrento Italy Tour
I wanted to write you a note to express how happy and satisfied my wife and I both were with the Italy vacation package we booked with you, this past March 2013.
As you will remember, this was our first trip to Italy, and we really didn’t know what to expect from your tour. I was very skeptical as to the quality of the tours, and the accommodations, in large part, because you’re prices were very competitive.
I am very happy to say, everything about this entire package, not only met my expectations, but also actually exceeded them.
As a point of reference, we have traveled on many corporate trips, and stayed at some of the best resorts in the world. The tour operators were very professional and knowledgeable, the Hotels were great and the organized evening events were exceptional, I can’t say enough good things about this trip.
Lastly, I need to acknowledge a few things that you personally did for us, that I thought were very professional and honorable.
You informed us a few days before we departed, that our airline would be going on strike, and changed our flights at no extra charge, and we left a day earlier, to get out before the strike to prevent any delays.
In addition, at no fault of yours, we arrived late in Venice and missed our transportation to the Hotel, it’s very expensive to get transportation from the Venice airport to a Hotel on the Grand Canal; we had to pay for this out of pocket, and you actually reimbursed me for this expense when we returned home.
Justin, thanks again for everything, it was a great experience and a pleasure working with you, and I will recommend you to anyone I know that is planning to go to Italy.
Venice, Florence, Rome Honeymoon in Italy
I wanted to say thank you for your help with our trip to Italy. We got back a couple days ago and it couldn’t have gone better. The hotels you suggested were perfect. We enjoyed each one. They were in great locations and were exactly the types of places we wanted. Thank you so much again. You really made sure we had our perfect honeymoon.
9-Day Venice, Florence, Rome Italy Tour
We would like to thank you for facilitating the Italian trip for us. We had a wonderful time and can only say ‘we have to go back’.
Thank you again. We met some lovely people on the tour.

14-Day Lake Como, Venice, Florence, Rome, Amalfi Coast Italy Tour
So nice to hear from you – the trip was beyond glorious! We loved every place and every moment. The scenery, the food, the smells, the people, the history, the art, the music, the culture and of course the shopping completely overwhelmed all of our senses in every perfect way possible!
But most of all, so much of the credit for this extraordinary trip must go to Martin, the tour manager. He reminded me so much of you in that he was so detailed and articulate with an inordinate amount of knowledge about Italy. He always kept things moving efficiently and made us feel we had a great safety net surrounding us when we would venture out on our own.
Seriously, words are inadequate to describe this experience – so glad I have the jewelry and the leather as everyday reminders!
We so want to thank you for all of your exquisite input in prepping us for this dream come true vacation! Your guidance has been invaluable and we truly look forward to discussing a return trip for same time next year.
Best, best, best regards,
Joyce & Steve
Independent Italy Vacation Tuscany, Amalfi Coast, Venice, Florence, and Rome
I apologize for not writing this to you sooner! Noris and I had a trip of a lifetime 🙂 We were very happy with the pace of the trip and with everything that you helped us to plan! The front of the line passes were perfect, the cooking classes were a great mix of private and group and the hotels were all very nice. It was reassuring to know that everything was planned in advance but that we still had flexibility to explore and do things on our own. We got to do touristy type things but in areas that not all tourists go as well which was a real treat.
We will definitely recommend you to anyone that is planning a trip to Italy!

Rome Pre Cruise Tour and Cruise Around Italy Rome to Venice
Where do I begin!!! We had a totally amazing time and we owe it all to you. There are not enough superlatives to express how grand everything was.
The tours you arranged were superior. We saw and covered more than anyone else on our cruise. All of the drivers and guides were friendly and extremely knowledgeable particularly Sarah and Luigi in Rome. Luigi even stayed with us to make sure the driver picked us up. I would recommend them to anyone who really wants to know it all! Isabel at the Borghesse was great too.
I could go on and on about all the wonderful guides and drivers but then again you already know that. Everything went well with only minor glitches. The worst was when the captain announced we would not be stopping at Amalfi due to engine trouble. There was brief disappointment but then we thought it gave us a good opportunity enjoy the ship. Later that day the captain announced we would be docking but not until 3 o’clock. We were excited again. I called your driver back and they said they could still pick us up and we went to Ravello!!! Fabulous. Guide was very accommodating and personable,( Enrico )
FABULOUS! WONDERFUL AWESOME TIME!!!
I will be referring some friends to you.
Thanks again for all your help,

Italy Cruise and Mediterranean Shore Excursions
A very BIG Thank you to Justin at Italian Tourism Italy Tours and Italy Vacations for putting together a wonderful 14 day Celebrity Cruise with excursions of Italy and Croatia which included a family reunion at Bari Italy, a port of interest for me since my family immigrated to the USA from this area.
Justin / Italian tourism went all out for us, providing guidance for a very special overnight trip in Bari where I met my Grandmother’s family. Justin was always there to answer our phone calls and promptly responded to our emails. He addressed all our questions and requests in a courteous and professional manner. His knowledge of the Italian regions, customs, transportation and services was most helpful for us in making our way around in Italy.
Not only was the Italian Tourism service very good, the price was even better. The price that Justin offered for our trip was the best price we had received and the most cost effective compared to some of his competitors.
Not only was the price right, but in addition to booking the trip and flights, his assistance continued during and even after the trip with follow up calls. Knowing that he was available to guide us was extremely comforting. He is genuinely patient, caring and most personable.

Northern Italy Pre-Cruise Tour Milan, Lake Como, Parma, Venice and Mediterranean Cruise
What a grand trip we had these last twelve days. The suggestion of Como and Parma was perfect for this time of the year. Lake Como and Bellagio were magnificent and the Hotel in Como was perfect with the piazza and the lake so close.
We enjoyed going to La Scala and thank you for arranging the tickets and having them sent to us beforehand. The train to Milan was a short ride and as you said the taxi ride was just minutes to Scala. After the show your driver was right there waiting for us outside the theater and we were whisked away in style right back to Como – many thanks to your careful planning.
Parma and the park there along with Garibaldi square was all stunning. Of course it was fun to go to the two restaurants that you suggested. They were perfect!! And bumping into your other travelers was quite coincidental and much fun.
The cruise starting in Venice was a delight and everything was smooth sailing all along the way.
I was very impressed with the shore excursion tours that you set us up with. The trip out to Alberobello from Bari was spectacular. And it was fun to learn that Caron your tour guide in Bari is also an old friend of yours from Washington and Georgetown. The Ephesus trip was beyond belief. Of course the fact that the tour guides are your old friends added to the royal treatment we received across Italy and the Mediterranean.
Many Thanks for everything!!
11-Day Tuscany, Amalfi Coast, and Rome Italy Tour
Just wanted to drop a note of thanks on helping us with our trip to Italy! It was amazing to say the least and we had a fantastic time. The driver you arranged for our transfer to Tuscany (Alberto) was fabulous! He hooked us up with an amazing restaurant in Orvieto and really showed us the sites. He was truly great and would definitely recommend him to others.
And Nicolletta was outstanding!!! She went out of her way to help make our trip perfect. My mom left her camera at a restaurant in Florence and didn’t realize it until we were back in Montecatini. Your guide had another guide from a different trip pick up my Mom’s camera in Florence and bring it to Rome so she was able to get it back. Needless to say, my mom was especially grateful to her!
An AMAZING time was had by all!
Pre-Cruise Rome and Venice Italy tour and Mediterranean Cruise
Good morning Justin,
Now that we are back and unpacked I just wanted to take some time to tell you thank you. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and you made this a perfectly seamless Italy vacation / Italy honeymoon for us. We can’t imagine it have gone any better. From the Rome and Venice hotels to the Mediterranean cruise to the guided tours in the ports and in Rome, to the restaurant recommendations, your assistance made us stress-free and able to enjoy Italy as much as we could in a limited time. I hope to be able to deal with you again on future travel and I have certainly already recommended you to others. I wish you best of luck in your business because you deserve it!
Milan and Venice Independent Italy Vacation Package
I wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time and thank you for everything. The hotels were great and so was the staff for each. The weather was clear all week and we saw everything that we planned on seeing and more. The tour for The Last Supper went well and the guide was great.
The day we left for Italy a transportation strike started there which was to last for 2 days. I figured it wouldn’t effect us because I was only thinking planes but I was wrong. Your Milan hotel came to our rescue and helped us get a train to Venice. Otherwise, we would have had to find a hotel room and not get to Venice until the next day. They were very accommodating and I wanted you to know….
Again, thank you very much for everything. You did a great job with our trip. I will recommend anyone that wants to travel in your areas of service to call you but not at 10:30 at night. I promise.

Cruise Around Italy Athens to Barcelona
This trip will be difficult to top. I am very happy we upgraded our cruise stateroom to have butler, Demiter was fantastic and the room was better than most hotels. I stay in lot’s of hotels and that was the best bed I ever slept in.
Michael our driver was professional, informative and humorous. We had such a great day with him.
Thank you again for all they detail work you did with us preparing for this amazing trip, it made all the difference.
Cruise Around Italy Athens to Barcelona
The cruise was fantastic; everything was beyond our expectations.
We did receive the correct on board credit; thank you.
Michael, the driver in Tuscany was superb. He took us to Volterra, San Gimignano, a great winery and of course the beautiful Tuscan country side. All 4 of us had our greatest day of the entire trip.
The tour to Ephesus started off not so good; there was no one waiting for Nancy and me. The tour people at the dock were extremely helpful and withim a 1/2 hour connected us to the right tour company.
We ended up with a private tour with a great driver and knowledgeable guide named Barbur.
We cannot thank you enough for all your expert help; you contributed greatly to our memorable trip.
In the future, we will definitely use your expertise again and will highly recommend your services to all that we relate our trip to.
Please keep us informed of any special trips that you become aware of.
Thank you so much.

Independent Rome and Amalfi Coast Pre Cruise Tour and Mediterranean Cruise
Just wanted to drop you a note of appreciation for the excellent job you did in allowing our family to share your love of Italy.
Everything worked out well….although we couldn’t possibly visit all the sites and couldn’t possibly eat at all the restaurants, we felt that we had the best information to make the trip an unforgettable experience.
From the “gozzi” in capri to the neighborhood pizzeria at Brandi’s… from the great experience with Audrey in Stabiae and Ricardo in Pompeii, from the taxi transfers that went without a hitch…..the trip was a resounding success.
My wife, who is a harsh critic of all my trips, even admitted that this adventure was a great one.
It was great to be able to ask you questions on the fly ( albeit over a slow internet) and have you give us alternatives( thank your for the info on the Ischia Spa and the gozzi).
11-Day Sicily and Southern Italy Tour
Katrina and I can’t thank you enough for a fabulous vacation!! Everything was as promised and more. The tour was organized, professional and took care of every little detail. We were there when Mt. Etna erupted and got awesome photos. How did you manage to arrange that?!
Thanks again, Justin. We’ll certainly recommend you to all.
Rome Vacation and Mediterranean Cruise Around Italy
Now that I find a little time, I wish to tell you how very much we thank you for all you did to make our recent cruise to the Mediterranean a wonderful success. I know that at times, I probably was a nuiance with all my questions, and I appreciate your patience with me. The Hotel Mozart was very nice (even though we had difficulty finding the entrance originally). The accommodations were very nice and the people and service were exemplary. I definitely would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in such a central location. The tour to the Vatican was as we expected and the people were very nice. We had one problem…..(our own mistake). Luke suggested that we walk from the Vatican, past the Trevi Fountain, back to the hotel. He said the distance didn’t look much more than back to the Metro station were we arrived that morning. 🙂 Big Mistake.
I can’t say enough “Thank Yous” to you for whatever you did to get us upgraded to the suite. That was wonderful – the luxury and amenities were unbelievable. After all the walking we did each day, the complimentary use of the thermal spa was invaluable to us and we took advantage of it every day. We really enjoyed the free canapes, fruit, fresh flowers, breakfast at Sabatinis, and the laundry service. We still are not able to understand our luck in getting such a great suite and all the added amenities. Upon learning of our upgrade to such a nice suite, I had several people ask for your name, phone number and internet address for future trips they might plan. Thank you for all your help in making our cruise such a memorable trip.
When we disembarked Michael was right there, the first driver we saw, which relieved my husband’s concern about our trip to the airport. He was very polite, conversed with us on the trip, and gave us good directions as to where to go when entering the terminal. I most definitely will recommend you to others as a travel agent.
Thanks again, Justin. Hope to work with you again.

11-Day Venice, Florence, Rome, and Amalfi Coast Italy Tour
We had such a GREAT time in Italy- the organization, time, schedule, itinerary were EXCELLENT. We were so happy that we are planning our next trip with you. We are giving recommendation to all our friends if they are planning to go to Italy, they must use your service.
12-Day Venice, Florence, Rome, and Amalfi Coast Italy Tour
We had a great time in Italy and meet new friends and wonderful people. What a historical country…a dream come true as we only seen those places in pictures. No problem in our guided tour…our hotels got better and better from Venice to Sorrento and dinner served outside our hotel was super.
We would recommend your company to our family and friends for your job specialty.
Many thanks for your help,
Fred and Emee,
San Francisco, CA
You were right, Tammy THOROUGHLY enjoyed her vacation and made many new friends. The touring company is definitely someone she would use again and she said the tour guide did an excellent job. I do not believe she could have had a better experience for her first trip overseas and thank you very much for setting everything up.
I meant to get back to you right after we got back. UNBELEIVEABLE!!!!! The best trip in my life. I cannot thank you enough. I know we were kind of frustrating to deal with and I apologize for that. I want to thank you for all your help! I wish I could do it all over again. Seriously, this is how I’d like to vacation, going forward. If you ever see one of these type packages with a bunch of new stops, please email me. I’m interested. And yes, I did get that very nice $150 credit. Thank you for that! I know that you pulled some strings and really made the trip super affordable. After the holiday, I will be sure to hop on Trip Advisor and such and write some fantastic reviews. The guides you suggested were top notch too, by the way
All around it was perfect!!!!
