My husband, 2 kids and I had a wonderful time on this tour. The Ferrari museum was the highlight! The Ferrari simulator was lots of fun, especially for the kids. We also went for a 10 minute test drive in a yellow California Ferrari which was awesome and quite reasonably priced. The free time in Bologna was nice and we just poked around the main square and enjoyed coffee and cake. The tour guide was very friendly and gave a good commentary in both English and Spanish for all guests. It was only a small group of about 12 so it was easy to hear everything and keep up. If you’re into cars or motor sports I would definitely recommend this tour.

I had a wonderful day on this tour. Our guide Constantinople was very good. He was knowledgeable and I appreciated the way he described everything. The bus we were on was clean and comfortable. The spots that they took us to for the wine tasting were very interesting. Italy is beautiful. Val D’Orcia is worth the trip. If you have difficulty walking or doing steps this is not for you

I had an absolutely lovely day. The drivers were great, pickup and booking were simple enough, and the timetables worked well. HOWEVER, I did not get what I signed up for. The tour was for Perugia, Assisi, and Cortona. We did not go to Cortona. We were not told in advance we would not be going to Cortona, and it was not mentioned during the day. The reason I picked this tour over a student-group tour was because this one went to Cortona and the student one did not. I am very grateful for the day that I had and don’t regret going. But, I do not think it is fair that I got 2/3 of what I signed up for and paid for—for the whole price.

I booked our tour via online with happytovisit and got a confirmation right away. However, when it was time for me to cancel one person’s reservation, I didn’t not get a response-it took two emails and a call to CiaoFlorence (tour operator) to reconfirm the cancellation so they can refund me. Check in at the meeting point was chaotic! They have reps from different tour companies but no signage as to which is which. This can be organized by a simple sign made and carried by the reps themselves. Gulio, our tour guide, is the best! He did an excellent job of describing the places we visited. He is passionate about his job; he went far and beyond just a tour guide. Very helpful if additional info is asked. Overall, the tour was excellent with Gulio as the tour guide! *Note: Two wine tastings should be pared down to one. A bit too much; it makes the day too long!
