The group was made up of people of the same age who were all travelling, so we were able to get along really well and swap stories about travels. Irene was a fantastic guide from the very start. She was bright and happy and enthusiastic throughout the trip. She knows a lot of the locals around the coast so travelling was made easy and hassle free. The schedule was still flexible enough for us to spend our own time at the different towns and do your own thing at night. I've travelled independently many times before, but I don't think I could have seen or experienced as much by myself. And it was made all so much better by Irene's enthusiasm and knowledge of the area. Really great value for money and a must do if you want to travel this region!                                                                                                      Read more

Every one of the guides were friendly, accommodating, and insightful. They definitely went above and beyond to make sure we were getting the best out of the experience. I loved everything about the places we visited and the hotels we stayed at. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for anyone looking to experience Italy the true Italian way!"   "Italy on a Budget was a great experience if you're wanting to have freedom as a traveler as well as it reduces the stress of having to organise public transport in other countries as it is already organised for you. Overall the tour is a great experience and you have great team leaders to help you in your travelling adventures. Although we could have organised everything ourselves, it’s the knowledge, information and support from the tour guides that is priceless. Being exposed to local food, accomodation and locally run activities I left saying “this is why we left the planning to someone else” Thanks guys, we will be back."   read more Want to see more of Italy?
