    • Fabulous trip through Umbria and Tuscany!

      • Service
        The trip was great. Little problem with the transportation from the airport to the hotel in Rome. My flight changed at the last minute and I called the transportation service to alert them. When I arrived in Rome, I was told I would need to wait an hour and a half so I took a cab to the hotel. The tour itself was great. *Personal Details removed by Feefo* was a fabulous tour guide.

        Lunch at a private home with an Italian family.
    • Excellent service, we are very happy customers

      • Service
        The service was excellent. While we planned our own flights, Collette did the rest and it was all very well coordinated. Our tour manager, *Personal details removed by Feefo*, was very good. He managed all aspects for ultimate enjoyment and was, himself, a great addition to the tour. One area of improvement is product knowledge by those who provide phone customer service. I asked more than once on how many people or bus size indicating number of people on the tour. I received responses of up to 44 people. However, this was an Explorer tour so the maximum is 24.

        We loved the smaller group and focus on small hillside towns! Highlights include the visit to the olive oil farm, Carletti, where the intimate setting was marvelous as was the olive oil. The cooking class in Vallo di Nera was a lot of fun and laughs. The small town is worth walking around too. The meal at a home near Bevagna was spectacular! What an idealistic home and place to live! The small towns and history the represent was also fabulous like the fortress town of Monteriggioni. Assisi and its history, cathedral are amazing and inspiring. Saint Francis is fascinating as he didn't start off as such a nice young man, but he certainly grew into a very special person. Learning of the painter Giotto who painted fresco's in the Assisi cathedral and was also the architect of the Florence bell town was beyond description. We also made some very nice and fun trip friends, Mary and Nancy, who made the trip more enjoyable with many laughs. Our tour manager was exceptional, *Personal details removed by Feefo*, and in addition to his tour management capabilities, he can sing beautifully. The weather during our tour was cooler than I expected so it's a reminder to be very prepared for expended cold weather or it could have gotten warm and Italy mandates no A/C until 6/1. We recommend this tour and Collette.
    • Loved it, we will always go with Collette.
