What our clients are saying about touring Italy & Sicily
“Family tour of Rome, Florence and Venice”
Excellent tour director covering all the landmarks in Rome, Florence and Venice. Local guides in each city provided passionate descriptions about the history. The optional tours are a must; the optional dinners, not so much. Only gripe was the hotels - tiny rooms in Venice, barely able to walk around the bed; too hot in rooms - could not achieve comfortable sleeping temperature. Booking through Global Journeys was excellent - everything as described and all paperwork delivered well in advance of ...read more the tour.
The tour director and local guides were very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly. Our only gripe was that the seating rotation was not implemented and our tour director did not do anything to implement or assist. It was really disappointing to be always be seated at the back just because of our mobility issues.
“The best way to travel around Italy”
The Cosmos Best of Italy tour was extremely well organised and executed. The communication right from the word go by Madeline Lewis from Global Journeys was absolutely brilliant, and we were also very impressed with the tour arrangements such as confirmation of tour, information on the tour etc. provided. 10/10 for our tour leader, Jian Luca. He was a wealth of knowledge, great personality, very vibrant, entertaining, fun and very competent. He had great attention to detail to make sure that he ...read more could provide anything we might have needed. In addition, the driver, Stefano, was very competent and about the best we’ve experienced. The local guides were also brilliant. Five star plus. We loved the entire tour. The program was intense but not overly. Always something of interest, but with enough down time. Very well planned, and the opportunity to see quite a lot of Italy. All the accommodations were clean and comfortable. Each had its own charm. Our overall rating of the trip is 10/10. We'll highly recommend it to the people we know. The itinerary is excellent because it encompasses all the regions of Italy. Thank you so very much Cosmos & team for having arranged the magnificent trip we took!!
“Great tour busy though every day!”
This tour is on the go every day with a lot of walking with stairs and steep inclines. We enjoyed all the sights especially Pompeii and Mount Etna and everything in between. It is a tour that educates you each day!
