Bellisimo ! – Indimenticabile ! (Unforgrtable) Italia !!!
Awesome trip. Great accommodations. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, informative, and took everyone’s needs into account. Very adaptable if weather became an issue. Their knowledge of the different areas led us to many awesome restaurants, wineries and sites off the beaten path, with amazing foods and private tours. A trip of a lifetime that really can’t be described until you experience it yourself!
Our recent tour of Tuscany was great – just too many wonderful things to describe. Our home base was a renovated farm house with a common room for breakfast, dinner and evenings playing dominos and chatting with friends. Each day there was an interesting trip to a nearby site that was a unique learning experience: wine tasting in a castle & in an underground cave dating back to Roman times; a farm to table luncheon; a tour of Siena – a city which dates back to 700 BC, a trip on a steam locomotive & making fresh pasta.The food was wonderful – wild boar stew, rabbit cooked in wine, pasta with porcini mushrooms just to mention a few. Every where we went, the food and people were amazing and in an intimate setting because of the close person connections between our guides and the hosts. Our guides, Lars & Brian were superb. Lars’ ability to simultaneously translate Italian to English and vice versa was outstanding, his knowledge of the area and it’s history made this a memorable trip. We plan to travel with them again.
Bella Italia Tours are the BEST…Their tour was well planned. We had somewhere to go every day yet we did not feel rushed and had time to relax also. Everywhere we went was exquisite. Our home base was unbelievable. We learned so much about all the different wines. The food was great and the everyone we met were very nice and made us feel at home. If you are planning to go to Italy I highly recommend Bella Italia Tours, I will definitely use them again. Our visit was with couples and single friends.
This was by far the most amazing , fun filled unforgettable experience of my life . . . I saw more and learned more about Italy in these two weeks than I did while serving 2 years there in the Navy ! ! ! Every day was a new and exciting adventure. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. Completely hassle and worry free , they thought of everything you may need. The best time we ever had on a vacation ! ! ! Already talking about our next trip with them. Try it and see for yourself.
This was my 3rd time travelling to Italy and I never thought I’d need a guide but I booked this tour to avoid having to do any planning. Well, I was not disappointed. Our guides for the various attractions were knowledgeable and personable and Brian’s attention to detail was evident throughout the entire trip. The hotels were fine, some were better than others, of course, but there was never a problem. Overall, a great trip.
Brian, thanks for all the things you did to make our vacation the best it could be. You were always willing to go the extra mile and we appreciate it. Robert and Victoria
My wife and I decided to do this tour based on a friend’s recommendation and we couldn’t be happier. There was the perfect amount of free time to go along with the guided excursions. We saw everything we came to Italy to see and made some great discoveries on our own.
Traveling to a new country can be intimidating, especially if you don’t speak the language and planning it before you arrive can be downright overwhelming! My husband and I explained what our desires were to Brian and he suggested the perfect tour! We started out in Milan and ended up at the beautiful Nerva Boutique Hotel in central Rome, with multiple stops on the way and without feeling like we spent the whole vacation on the bus. Brian not only listened to our needs but exceeded our expectations!
We loved this tour! We live in a rural area and love to go hiking so Cinque Terre was our favorite part. Would definitely do it again!
