Easy booking, nothing was a problem, prompt reply to emails. We did the Pearls of Puglia Tour. Fantastic region to explore, tour guide Sabrina was excellent and our other local guides were also great.

Excellent Service!

01-Mar-2020

Received excellent service and suggestions for a tour we planned for our son and daughter when they toured the Amalfi Coast in August. Hotels were all in great locations close to the action and all excellent 4 or 5 star. Would definitely use or recommend Omega tours to friends or family.

I had wonderful time

04-Oct-2022

Just came back from my 11 days Portugal tours I booked through Omega tours. And I had wonderful time. I joined a small group tours, which is really great. The tour guide Myriam is one of the best tour guide I ever had. I always travel solo( and sometimes join a group tours )and tried to travel every year if I can . I am surely looking forward to booked more tours with you.

Was pleasantly surprised that there were only 4 people on the Best of Portugal tour. Our guide Cristina was fabulous and was a wealth of information on everything Portugal. A great experience overall and would highly recommend.

Had a great time and an amazing experience. The touring company was excellent, punctual with clean buses and friendly and well informed tour guides. Hotels were nice, clean with good location, great service and good breakfast. We are recommending it to everyone and hoping one day we can repeat it.

Very pleased with this well organized tour of Italy

30-Apr-2022

Very pleased with this well organized tour of Italy. A great balance of sightseeing and free time. Exceptional local guide and driver. I’m not sure I would consider the hotels chosen to be 4 star - with the exception of Hotel St Martin in Rome which was great - but the others were very clean and well located. Would definitely choose Omega tours again when booking group travel.

Lisa M  

Most beautiful trip I've ever taken.

07-Jun-2022

Most beautiful trip I've ever taken. Having all my hotels and pickup and drop- offs taken care of by Omega Tours made this trip so easy to enjoy! Michael was amazing. He was always available to answer all of our questions and he made sure we had everything we needed in order to travel internationally during a crazy pandemic!

Joseph L  

Everything we experienced was exactly as described

25-Oct-2022

We took the Italy Deluxe Tour in September of 2022. Everything we experienced was exactly as described. Exceptional accommodations, travel and guides were provided in each city. Michael, our booking agent, gave us complete confidence that we had chosen the right tour operator by his attention to detail and prompt correspondence. We are delighted with Omega Tours and have already recommended them to many friends.

02-Nov-2023

Sadly we cannot recommend them...primarily due to our tour leader. He was a nice enough young man, but a very poor communicator. Ask anyone in our group and they will tell you that we were in the dark on a daily basis. We had to ask about times to meet, schedule, dinner plans - answers were vague or he would say he would tell us later. The words "don't worry" are not what you want to hear when you are trying to get specific information. Several of the local tour guides were hard to understand - so we ended up touring most places on our own. The hotels were hit or miss. (Naples was the absolute worst). It had a beautiful view, but it was very isolated so it was difficult to get a cab to come up the street - even walking was dangerous.
