Rome and Amalfi Dream (On Request)

06-Oct-2022

Amalfi ride was an amazing experience! Scary and exciting at the same time. Accomodation was great, and we really liked how the itinerary was designed, because there is a ton of interesting content and still enough time for relaxation.

Campania Region Highlights, Private Tour

The Amalfi Coast is stunning and the people of Italy were very welcoming and helpful. First, a shout out to Dario, my Pompeii guide - excellent! 2nd day was to be the Capri tour (amazing!) the lemon grove tour (also amazing, personal and very enjoyable), My guide for the walking tour in Napoli was wonderful.

Rome and Amalfi Dream (On Request)

29-Jun-2022

Overall good. Tour guides we all exceptional. The transportation was a small issue, one ride cane over 30 minutes early (luckily we were ready). The other ride scheduled to take us back to the airport arrived 45 minutes late. Hotel in Rome a bit older but the staff and location very nice. A great restaurant across the street.

Rome & Splendid tour

01-Sep-2022

I loved everything about this tour. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer! Tui Italia took care in answering all our questions, and handling our delayed flight, as well as our early departure request. Each of the local guides along the way did a good job...especially Marco who led our excursion to Capri. The accomodations were clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this trip.
