Italy Discovery Tours Reviews



Our group of 11 loved the full day boat tour of Lake Como in September 2018. The captain and tour guide met us in Como at the time and place arranged. The classic wooden boat was beautiful and comfortable. We visited Villa Balbianello, Bellagio, Varenna and the roman bridge/waterfall in Nesso. The guide pointed out all the interesting sites along the way. The Captain even arranged lunch for us at a very nice place right outside of Bellagio called Alle Darsene di Loppia. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. Highly recommend.

MILAN City Private Driver | Milan Airport Transfers

My son and I had a wonderful tour over the Great St Bernard pass via the tunnel. Simone was super friendly, and a careful and conciencious driver. The car was new and perfect for a long day on the road. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Italy Discovery Tours to anyone!

CINQUE TERRE | Day-Trip from Florence

We took a private tour to CinqueTerre from Florence where we were staying for a few days. It was a great experience, first time there, and first time in Tuscany for me.
Weather was ok, not too warm but definitely not cold. We were told April is a bit risky but we were lucky enough!
Our driver Nicola was great, very kind man and our guide in Cinque Terre was very helpful and informative. We loved Manarola!!!

We would recommend your tour to our friends! Thank you.

Our journey actually began in Nice, France, where our Italy Discover Tours driver, Simone, arrived bright-eyed and bushy tailed to transport us to Alba, Italy. This was the first of many times I felt that Italy Discovery Tours team went out of their way to provide us with the most hospitable and amazing customer service! Simone was with us for 3 and a half days, and made our trip so easy and enjoyable. He was always on time, courteous, professional, his English was great and I understand he speaks other languages as well. He added a lot of highlights to the trip, offering information along the way and a charming fun personality, we shared a lot of laughs and made great memories.

Our first destination was the Winery, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Piedmont. The wine makers were so gracious and informative, we tasted some exceptional wines and were treated to an amazing lunch at the winery! They even made a special vegan meal for my daughter, which she really appreciated and everything they served was absolutely authentic, delicious and presented with care and finesse.

We took the tour to Parma and Modena on our second day in Italy, and found the food and scenery to be very intriguing.
Our guide, Camilla, was very knowledgeable, friendly, charming – another great representative of Lorenzo’s team! She was so well versed in the destinations and her translation skills extended beyond simply words, you can tell she loves what she does. We learned about the production of Prosciutto di Parma, Parmesan Reggiano and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
To get a sense of how much love and care go into these products, be able to meet the very passionate and charismatic producers and sample these regional delicacies was such a unique way to experience the country.

BEST OF MILAN: 3h Milan WALKING Tour | Last Suppper Tour

Milan was our base for discovering Italy, and we very much enjoyed a walking tour on our last day in Italy. Our guide, Valentina, was very well educated and experienced in the history and culture of Milan, and was a delight to be with, so friendly and interesting.
Italy Discovery Tours staff was able to get us tickets to The Last Supper, which was all sold out for months in advance of our trip, so that was a really nice surprise and I would say – a must see. The art and architecture was inspiring and jaw dropping; the Duomo, La Scala Opera House and Sforza Castle – three amazing historical landmarks nestled inside a bustling, modern and vibrant city. I don’t think we would have truly appreciated the significance of these iconic sights, as well as the local culture of Milan without Valentina, she really made the day wonderful for us!

Cagliari was such an interesting city to visit, thank you for extending our tour to 6 hours instead, that was great!

We wanted to visit Sardinia and Cagliari, and we thought a private tour would be best so we had fresh air-conditioning on these hot days. Castello old town was incredibly beautiful to visit and our driver Matteo was such a good driver and guide.

We had lunch in a small restaurant suggested by our driver and fish was delicious.
I would highly recommend your company!

CINQUE TERRE | Day-Trip from Milan

Yesterday we had a tour to cinque terre and we really enjoyed the day. We suggest to wear very comfortable shoes and light clothes as the walk is quite intense on summer days.

My family and I (5 people in total) had a very beautiful day in Portofino. Genoa was also interesting and worth visiting, but definitely the best of day was our lunch by the sea. Thank you!
