I wanted to take a moment to leave some feedback on our experience with you and your company during my husband and I's recent 12 days Magic of Italy tour. Quite simply, it was AMAZING. I'd like to thank you for making this experience so carefree and enjoyable.

Thank you for helping with the booking of our trip and being so accommodating with my requests. I couldn't have asked for an easier method to plan the trip of a lifetime. Looking back at the effort put in from me and the end result, I can not be more grateful for all of your accommodations. Every person we encountered during our stay-whether it was drivers, hotel staff or tour guides-was personable, friendly and truly went out of their way to make sure we were happy. We felt like VIPs. The drivers were professional, courteous and extremely friendly. Not to mention, always on time! It made our trip so incredibly carefree. The tour guides were also fantastic. They were extremely knowledgeable and they all had a wonderful sense of humor, which was greatly appreciated and refreshing! They were so passionate about each city and the history behind it that it was contagious! They truly make you understand the history and make you feel like old friends, it was fantastic! You never felt like just another tourist, you felt like a GUEST!

Also, I believe you had mentioned that you have never dealt with Hotel Graal in Ravello so I'd like to leave a direct review for them as well. They were also, phenomenal! The location was absolutely stunning and the staff was incredible! I would highly recommend you use them again and suggest it to your guests. We're so happy we made that detour.

Thank you all for making this the trip of a lifetime for my husband and I. The services you provided made us feel like rockstars and made our trip carefree and extremely enjoyable. We didn't need to worry about a thing which gave us the opportunity to truly appreciate Italy. I can not say enough about this experience.

Our trip was fantastic, thank you Avventure Bellissme!
You took care of it all for us except our air. The drivers were all very good and informative.
Our hotels were good.. We had a problem when we arrived in Florence, they did not have a room for us. They were very nice and booked us in a room just steps away. The next day they moved us, ( we were on a tour). It all worked out and they gave us a beautiful fruit arrangement and apology note.the Venice hotel was our least favorite. The shower stall was so tiny, you could barely move. It worked ok for us as we are both smaller framed people. I would hate to see a big person in there!
Our tours were all fantastic. Each guide was great but a special shout out to Francesca!! She was our Colosseum guide and then we were lucky enough to have her the next day to guide us through The Vatican!! Lucky us!!!!
This trip was a great experience for us. We have shared your name with many already!
Thank you!!!!

I wanted to thank you for your support and care throughout our planning process and vacation. Your attention to detail was amazing. I have recommended Avventure Bellissime to several friends. It was so nice to know the important details of accommodations, tours and transportation were taken care of. This gave us time to relax and enjoy all that Italy had to offer.

The hotels were amazing! Each accommodation had it's own unique quality and was clean and well kept. All staff were helpful and friendly.

All of our transportation needs were met by professional and friendly drivers in vehicles that were spacious and clean. All transportation was on time and at the described location.

The tour guides were knowledgeable and truly passionate about the locations. Each guide offered in-depth and personal experience to the tours.

I hope that we will be able to return to Italy soon. If so, we will be contacting Avventure Bellisime to help us plan our trip.

Exceptional service, we took this tour and added extra days in Rome, Sorrento, Florence and Venice. What an amazing trip. We were able to see so much with all the tours planned, and still have lots of free time to wonder and sit in cafes. We also added in the Pompeii, Amalfi Coast tour and Valpolicello wine tour.

All the walking tours were small, they ranged from 5 – 14 people and we were given a lot of attention on all of them. All were very professional guides.

Francessca in Rome who did the Colosseum and Ancient Rome was fantastic, her knowledge was unbelievable, she loves what she does and it shows.

The Vatican and Sistine Chapel tour with Luca was also fantastic, his knowledge and passion of Michaelangelo was amazing, it made for a very passionate tour. He was very attentive to his group as the Vatican was exceptionally busy that day, he made sure we saw all the highlights.

The hotel choices were great, we did the budget hotels and they were all centrally located, could walk to everything, clean, breakfast choices plenty and delicious, friendly and helpful staff in all the hotels.

Local drivers that met us as each point on the trip were terrific. They were prompt with clearly marked signs and the vans/cars they used were roomy and comfortable to drive in.

Thanks so much for making our Italy trip a dream come through. We will definitely recommend this tour company, they delivered on everything they said., we did not have to worry about anything. What an amazing Italian adventure we had thanks to Avventure Bellissime.

A very heartfelt thank you for your exceptional service. Jonathan I can't thank you enough for your help with planning our itinerary, your suggestions and local knowledge. Your advice was great. Claudia, thank you for being there and so contactable throughout our trip. It was really nice to know that you were just an email or phone call away. The selected hotels were so central to the cities we stayed in and it was easy to get around. The Cinque Terre and Sorrento being our favourites.
The tours we took, I have to say Francessca in Rome who did the Colosseum and then the Vatican tour was absolutely brilliant, her knowledge was unbelievable and she delivered the talks without overloading the mind. You have a gem in Francessca. Our driver to Cinque Terra was also amazing, we had a lovely conversation and he shared so much info with us.
All your drivers were lovely.
Thank you so much for giving us a tour of Italy that we will never forget. We will be back.

Where do we begin! This trip was tailored to our requests by our very patient booking agent Aleksandra. She was incredibly helpful and flexible with our every request! From the drivers picking us up and dropping us off for each new adventure, to the tour guides and tours themselves, we were so impressed with how seamless our trip was. The hotel choices are all great! We enjoyed having our own free time to explore each city on our own. We were even able to book a tour last minute without issue when our plans changed.

A special thank you to Francesca, our guide in Rome. Her love of history and pure enjoyment of her job was quite evident. I've never been more interested in Ancient Rome and the Vatican after spending a day with Francesca! We loved spending the day with her and wished she could have traveled elsewhere with us. She is a true gem and you will have a fabulous day with her. Avventure Bellissime, you are very lucky to have her.

We look forward to our next trip to Italy and have already recommended your company to others. Grazie!

Dear Chiara and Aleksandra,

I just wanted to thank you both for arranging such a wonderful vacation package for my husband and me. All of the drivers and tour guides were very prompt and courteous. They all provided us with interesting information about the area.

We loved the hotels, especially the Minervetta in Sorrento. The view from our room was just breathtaking!

Thanks again and I will be sure to recommend you to others.
