Umbria cooking vacation, Italy
From
€1,190

There are a number of memorable things - the house and it's very peaceful location, Marina and Gianlucca's hospitality; perhaps extra special were the cooking lessons in their superb kitchen followed by some excellent meals with great company. (more)Kevin Fidler
Do it. You will love it. (more)Ruth Kirkby
The cooking was great and we helped out with different parts such as frying courgette flowers in rice flour a delicacy and making ravioli (more)Richard Soper

Tuscany vacation, Italy
From
US $1,425
excluding flights
It was a really great vacation - just what I was looking for - staying in a lovely place, with a small group of pleasant people, in amazing countryside and with a guide who spoke Italian, obviously loved the place, looked after us really well and must be the best guide there is! (more)Jill Simpson
I enjoyed it immensely. The whole week was organised in a really excellent way and was varied and fascinating. The company was great and we all gelled very quickly. (more)Linda Marlow

Tuscany family activity holiday
From
£590
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Simply the location! It was all that you imagine Tuscany to be - a converted farmhouse set in stunning countryside with a view of the surrounding Tuscan countryside that had to be seen to be believed and which afforded the sight of the most wonderful sunsets. That the accommodation was also superb and provided by the most dedicated and hard-working hosts ever made it the most complete location for a vacation in Tuscany. All the local food was pretty stunning too! Tips? 1.... (more)Rowland Cleverley
Tuscany horse riding vacation in Italy
From
€1,250
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Definitely, the best aspect of this trip was the horse riding. The horses were healthy and well-behaved. Riding along side sky-high cypress trees, between rows of vineyards, and past ancient ruins and rural villas was quite an experience. The pace was comfortable - with plenty of lively canters! We stayed at the riding center in the owner's restored family home. My sister and I shared a room that overlooked the stables. We fell asleep to the gentle sound of nickers. Tips? This...

Western Dolomites walking tour in Italy
From
US $1,285
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Despite having a mobility problem, I managed 3 out of 4 walks. They were amazing and Rudy was invaluable to give me the confidence to carry on even on some quite hard terrain. The hotel turned out to be experts in gluten free cooking and so the other perfect half was the ability to eat enough food to fuel the walking. Also the food was delicious. And the staff were lovely. Tips? If you have coeliac disease go on this vacation, you won’t have to worry about cross contamination... (more)Margaret Pomfret
Amalfi Coast and Bay of Naples vacations
From
US $1,365
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Most exciting was definitely Walk of the Gods, from Bomerano where we stayed to Positano over 2000' down on the coast. Fantastic views surrounded by wildflowers and herbs, across precipitous slopes and finally descending steps through cacti gardens from Montpertuso. But I also have to say I was surpised by how attractive Naples was, with its very elegant seafront. Tips? The combination of mountains and coast means that you can experience every sort of weather in... (more)Juliet Dunn

Umbria cooking and painting vacation, Italy
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was my first trip to Italy, and as they say, first impressions do make lasting impressions. And Umbria was the right blend of beauty, serenity, culture and great cuisine. As a solo traveler, I basically wanted a relaxing break with some fun activities and learning too. I got all that and more with the Cooking and Painting vacation that I booked through Responsible travel, based at Podere le Olle in Umbria. I totally loved the experience, made especially memorable by... (more)Ambika Thandavan
Walking vacation in Tuscany
From
US $1,395
excluding flights
Very good!....It was lovely to be looked after by the family at Braccicorti who housed and fed us wonderfully. Sara our guide took us to shops in the local area who sold local produce as well and we could buy some things like home grown sun dried tomatoes and red wine from the farm we were staying on. (more)Sue Haseltine
The only vacation I've even gone on that I would do again. (more)Mary Watkin
Most memorable was reaching the top of Monte Prado, the highest point in Tuscany and no other group in sight. The best kept secret, long may it continue. I plan to go back! (more)Marie Therese Filippi
Italy tour, Rome to Venice
From
US $2,875
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole tour was great, but I especially enjoyed the picnic while watching the sun set over the roof tops of Florence. Tips? Be prepared to do a lot of city walking. Local benefits? Was only used public transport or our feet, which was great. Overall rating? Value for money. Pace was right with a good balance of lone time and group time. (more)Leigh Danziger
Vacation in Umbria
From
US $1,560
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Wine tasting in Spello. Tips? You will benefit from not following the crowds thru Rome, Venice and in between. Some of the best shops, people and sights were along the narrower, less popular streets. Local benefits? I know it did. We stumbled on a very local benefit cook-out for a church restoration in Venice. We enjoyed dinner there which also included a live band, and felt good that proceeds were going to a good cause. Overall rating? Great. It... (more)John LaMonica
Cycling vacation in Umbria, Italy
From
US $1,350
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling through some beautiful areas of Italy with a great, mixed group. Tips? Get some cycling practice in - most of the riding is on quiet roads, so worth getting used to traffic. Local benefits? Not sure it particularly benefited local people, although meals were often in local restaurants. Overall rating? Absolutely fantastic and memorable. (more)Michelle Bickle

From
US $1,395

Tuscany tours, walking and wine tasting in Italy
From
US $1,235
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Viewing the city of Florence from the Viewpoint of Piazza Michaelangelo Tips? Come prepared for any kind of weather. We had wind, rain, thick cloud and hot sunshine. Local benefits? Very much so. We stayed in a very lovely converted farmhouse, ate in local restaurants, shopped in small towns and villages, and tasted the local Chianti Classico in several wineries. Overall rating? A wonderful mixture of fabulous walks through forests and vineyards,... (more)Susan Sargeant
Cycling tours in Italy, Dolomites, Lake Garda & Venice
From
US $1,625
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The cycling Tips? Bring clothes for all weathers. We had one day when we needed sunscreen and a hat, and the next it was freezing rain. It's not a tremendously demanding ride, but you do need to be able to ride 30 miles a day and climb a hill or two. Local benefits? We did spend money in local cafes and retaurants, and biking's definitely better than car or coach. I would have liked to see fewer disposable cups and other items in the hotels though. Overall...

Puglia small group tour, Italy
From
US $1,545
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The varuety of the programme. Towns like Ostuni, Otranto, Matera were fascinatingly different. Also the local experiences of food and wine tasting. Tips? There's a lot more walking than is indicated in the brochure. Not really suitatble for anyone with walking problems. Local benefits? Hard to tell, but probably. Overall rating? Very good. Excellent guide. Nice mixed group. Great taster for an underrated part of Italy. (more)Alan McLean
Amalfi Coast small group vacation, Italy
From
US $1,699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The day on the farm learning about how the lemon farm operates and how to make limoncello and having a go at making our own pizzas in the family oven. My husband would say the best part was the home cooked food - amazing every night! Our guide Elisabetta was also fantastic and made everyone feel welcome and went over and above in looking after us - especially when my husband got sick. Tips? Breakfast is basic, recommend bringing a few cereal bars if you like a big... (more)Deborah Flint

From
US $1,395

The choice of small, locally run hotels and restaurants and our improvised picnics meant that our money was spent locally. (more)Patricia Holt
I really enjoyed it - nice way to get to absorb the vibe of a country and quite nicely low key....It was great having a leader to look after us as we couldn't speak a word of the local language and knew nothing. We went to one beautiful, wild beach where a pine forest fringed the sand - it went on for miles and no one else was there - and the swimming was glorious! And the gorge was awe-inspiring .....

Excellent. Learn a bit of Italian, especially for food items - makes it just that bit easier and more enjoyable! (Makes the locals happy too). (more)Meiling Aw
Amalfi Coast sailing vacation, Italy
From
US $1,719
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Great scenery and views, superb to see the coast from a boat. Tips? Be aware that although a sailing trip, there is not much sailing. Local benefits? No. We motored a lot rather than sailing (due to time constraints and being able to get to places to do things). Overall rating? Very good although I was disappointed that there wasn't much sailing. But great way to see the Amalfi coast. I don't think I would do the same trip again or a similar one. (more)Karen Fenton

From
US $2,605

Memorable parts? Pompeii and the statues in the Museo Cappella Sansevero - amazing Tips? TRAVEL LIGHT - we were told INCORRECTLY that we would have help with luggage.
