  1. Truly THE BEST of Italy!!!

    We adjusted the Best of Italy (BOI) itinerary a bit to meet our needs, and, WOW it far exceeded our expectations. We did the tour in reverse order, and it worked our perfectly for us! Our Tour Leader was truly exceptional, so she really enhanced our experience; however, even without her, the BOI trip is fabulously planned and delivered. We also did the BOI trip in 2014.

    We upgraded our meals, and it was well worth the cost -- I highly recommend this upgrade if at all possible -- what a difference!

    Our favorite cities were Florence and Siena (we added on a stop in Siena on our way from Florence to Rome). We also added on Pisa, which we enjoyed. Venice was great -- as I write this I realize that ALL the cities are great, which makes a fabulous tour! It truly is the BEST of Italy!

  2. Amazing trip to Italy!

    We just returned from the most amazing trip....the Best of Italy. It has always been my dream to visit Italy, and EF made it possible for both me and my son. I really enjoyed the walking tours and personal attention from our Tour Director, she always made sure we were having a good time and gave us great tips for things to do during our free time. I've read some negative reviews about EF tours, but our experience was fantastic. We are looking forward to traveling with EF again.

  4. great guide director!

    We had a wonderful time in Italy. The tour director was great with all of us as she solved any issues we had wth the rooms or food, etc. Great personality as well!!
    The rooms were fine but some way too small. The buses were confortable and great drivers were provided!
    The cities we visited were amazing and beautiful, great choices!

    The tour director was exceptional, hands down the best person. she was patient, kind and very informative.

    the only downside were the hotels, they could have been a little nicer.

    besides that I would recommend the tour to anyone.

  6. Italy 2016 - AWESOME Adventure!

    Our guide was enthusiastic & funny. Landscape, cities and activities were engaging. Most of all, the children had a fun educational experience.

  9. Trip of a lifetime!

    Traveling to Italy with 5 students was made EASY...with EF. There is a comfort level, knowing that everything is taken care of and SOMEONE knows where they are going and what the next move is. We were constantly on the go...almost too much for my personal tastes but we covered a lot of Italy in a short span of time. Overall...AMAZING DOESN'T DO IT JUSTICE! #bESTOFiTALY2016

  10. Amazing Trip!

    Our trip through Italy proved to be another wonderful adventure, guided by a seasoned and resourceful tour director, who went out of his way to make it enjoyable for all. The added bonus of going to places not even mention in our itinerary, made us wanting to go back for more adventures.
