Enjoyed the trip very much.
We enjoyed the holiday overall but it could have been much better if we were served quality food on the tour. The impression is of things being done on the cheap. I would prefer the pay a bit more and get better quality. You should never be disappoin...
Very poor hotel locations.
One hotel (Lario) with very dangerous -could have been fatal- emergency response.
Good tour but hotel service poor. leave Lugano off your itinery.
able to see all the main areas without any hassle.
Generally good value. Optional excursions are often very poor value for money.
Excellent says it all
This was a very good tour, both our guide Andreas and driver Luca were excellent. Airline - Flybe were delayed on both journeys and check in at Milan was poor.
The Tour Director and Driver were excellent. It was disappointing that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in any of the hotels other than the 1 night in Milan.
Would have been good if the local guide forVerona was included in the price.
Some aspects were disappointing such as hotel locations, feeling of having to book extra tours. Tour director and driver were fantastic.
Lake Garda hotel too out of the way.
Lake Como hotel was grand from outside but had hard uncomfortable beds, feather pillows only (caused alergic reaction) and the dinners were poor (breakfast OK).
The tour is very good and the experience with the airline does not reflect on the tour director (whom was very helpful in assisting with the baggage loss) or the general experience of the holiday. I would recommend the tour but not the airline.
A lovely part of Italy, very scenic and with the good weather it was magical.
The choice of hotels was poor - poor locations and uninspired included meals. The optional excursions were poor value for money - we declined them all and did our own thing, getting twice as much to do and at half the price.
