ESCORTED TOURS OF ITALY

Visiting Italy by yourself can be a daunting proposition. Each region and city truly has its own personality and you’ll be hard pressed to see it all in just one trip. Joining an escorted tour is an ideal way to hold FOMO at bay and ensure you’re getting a proper introduction to one of the Mediterranean’s most romantic and popular countries.You might find yourself floating down the canals of Venice in one of the historic northern city’s iconic gondolas one evening, and be sipping a glass of Chianti wine amid the rolling hills of Tuscany the next. Explore classical works of art in Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, or walk in the footsteps of Julius Caesar on a tour of ancient Roman ruins like the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Heading farther south, you might enjoy hiking Mount Vesuvius before an authentic pizza dinner in Naples or cruising around the glamorous Amalfi Coast before a limoncello tasting in charming Sorrento. If you prefer to stick to the northern parts of the country, you might find yourself based in fashionable Milan before branching out to explore the Dolomite Mountains, Lake Como, or the quaint villages of the Cinque Terre.

Very Responsive

Reviewed By James J - Alexandria VA | Traveled to Europe
Helle is very responsive to our requests and has great suggestions when we need help with our vacation plans. She also encouraged us to try cruises, and even though we normally are not "big crowd people", we thoroughly enjoyed the 3 cruises we participated in.

Great Trip!

Reviewed By L & L - Herndon , Virginia | Traveled to France ~ Europe
Helle made the trip so easy! We could not decide where we wanted to go this year. A friend had refered us to Helle, and and within an hour or so we chose our destination. Helle took care of tickets and gave advice on what to see and do. We worked out the details over a couple of days and had a great trip! Helle was very easy to work with and made traveling in a foreign country much easier to navigate.

Helle's travel planning and assistance to my wife and me has been outstanding.

Helle is fantastic! I have booked 7 trips with her and will continue to do so. Her knowledge of the locations we want to go helps us pick our best plan for the kind of trip she wants. Since I have worked with her so many times, she knows what I will like and dislike about a trip and helps me make the best decision on where to go. She's fantastic! I would highly suggest working with her as she will find the best trip for you for the absolute best price. Helle is the best!

Cruise travel

Reviewed By CKM - McLean, VA | Traveled to Eurpoe
We have utilized Helle's help with varying aspects of planning trips for quite a while. She has demonstrated she is excellent in picking the "right" hotel for us in relation to location, ambiance and price on at least two separate foreign country trips where we were on our own. Helle is super at working the airline quagmire of seating and upgrades especially for those long foreign destinations. We feel Helle has shown over and over again she is the consummate professional who demonstrates her knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile in getting us what we want.
