    There was a little problem with the air conditioning on the bus. We went on a wine tasting class in Piedmont and it was excellent. I think you should look into adding to your list of events. Wines of Piedmont.

    Critique: There were no suggestions for things to do on the days we were on our own - only a lunch or a dinner at a restaurant or just walk the streets (which actually wasn't a bad thing to do). We were on our own to research alternatives. Also, if we wanted to visit a museum (Florence), the only option was individual purchases of tickets. Why did we not have the option to go as a group that would have given us a preferential group visit? Cinque Terre - why wasn't it suggested to us that instead of following the guide up the steep hill, we could take a ferry and see all 5 towns from the Mediterranean. All in all, the visit to Italy was a memorable experience.

    The only downside of the trip was not having enough time to spend in certain areas, It would have been nice to have a down day in the Tuscan region to enjoy the pool etc. at our last hotel. With that being said the trip was great and I'm sure planned to see as much as possible. We would definitely travel with Collette again.

    Overall the tour was amazing, the sites were incredible. The various personalities of the people on the tour provided, additional flavor, fun and excitement to the experience. The pacing of the tour could have been better. For example, after a red-eye flight, we only had a half hour before the welcome dinner. (and our flight was on time) This trend continued throughout the week where there was not enough time to change cloths and freshen up before dinner.

    The tour guide had a rotation system that was not fair for the size of the group and length of the trip. I complained to him because on this rotation we would be in the back of the bus for the whole tour.He agreed with me then had us sit in the front 1/2 of the bus for one 20 minute trip then he went back to his rotation system that put us in the back. I complained again and he moved us up front for another trip about 45 minutes but never for the day. He was nice and had a lot of knowledge but this is not fair.
