What our clients are saying about touring Italy & Sicily
“Enjoyable trip of Sicily”
I enjoyed this trip. A combination of busy touristy places and smaller locations. Wonderful guide, who spoke perfect Italian with an English accent. Lovely driver as well. The highlight for me was the Cathedral at Monreale - as the local guide said, you could spend a day talking about this Cathedral with its 24 carat gold edging & mosaic tiles, telling the stories of the times. Also I was there in Palermo at the annual Festival of St Rosalie, and the street lighting was beautiful. The accommodation ...read more was great. Unfortunately there was a heat wave in Europe when I travelled in July, but I did find Sicily cooler than where I had come from (Greece). The included dinners in Sicily were wonderful. I have used Insight quite often in the past, and will use them again next year for one of my trips. Global Journeys always does a great job with booking, and Yvonne is lovely in that she sent me a paper copy of my documents, as I like to hold paper in my hand (I know I am old school).
“Italy at its Best”
Antonia was an exceptional guide - very knowledgeable, enjoyable to be with, supported all the group, and spent a lot of My Time guiding us around. Outstanding accommodation and excursions. We knew we were experiencing Italy at its best. Would recommend to others.
“Stunning Southern Italy”
A week in southern Italy in summer - what could be better! Spending more than the usual amount of time in 2 locations; Puglia and Sorrento (3 days in each) allowed a more relaxed vacation and the opportunity to explore these areas in more depth. Great included activities and even better optionals resulted in some very memorable occasions, especially those that involved the divine Italian cuisine! And won't forget the shots of Limoncello! This is now the 4th Insight trip we had booked through ...read more Global Journeys and all handled by the wonderful Hannah. Now planning the next trip...
“Fantastic Ultimate Italy”
Fantastic trip. The perfect itinerary for seeing Italy. Lots of free time to make sure that I could schedule in the things I wanted to see the most. I paired this tour with G Adventures' Local Living Sorrento to get a good overview of Italy. The only thing to suggest is to pack lightly, G Adventures uses local transport so you will be carrying your own luggage up stairs. Pick this style of trip if you like to have free time to do what you want to do as well as spend time with a group when you ...read more want. Don't pick this trip if you like your luggage picked up at the front of your hotel door and having everything arranged and scheduled for you. I loved every moment of this trip.

Peregrine's Tuscan Food and Wine Guide
When you go to Italy on holiday you might expect to survive on a diet of pizza, Spaghetti Bolognese and gelato (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). But, did you know there is more to Italian cuisine than these famous favourites? And that every region of Italy boasts its own..
