I gave Mike a bit of a challenge as I only discovered his tour once I was well into confirming our final Italian itinerary. My grandfather had fought for the British Army and the details had always been a bit vague, except I knew he was badly injured in a town call Orsogna. With literally only 24 hours available to...

My wife wanted to find out about her Grandfathers involvement in the WW2 campaign around Ortona & Orsogna. She did a fair amount of research and found Mike online. He did some further research and we joined him in Italy for 2 really informative days following the path of her Grandfather and his regiment. We saw a lot and visited... More

I'd been aspiring to travel to my family's home village in east-central Italy since I was a boy and finally had time to make it happen this spring. I came upon Absolutely Abruzzo Tours via web search and contacted Mike Howard to inquire. From the start Mike was very responsive and willing to entertain what I wished to do while... More

If you want something different as part of your tour in Italy, you should contact Mike Howard of Absolutely Abruzzo Tours. He and his staff are fluent in the language, they know all the history, and will take you to the many beautiful areas of this province, including the Adriactic coastline. If you are in need of research for decendants/relatives,... More

Following on from our very successful tour in the Abruzzo region in 2013, we decided to engage Michael again for our 2015 tour. Whereas 2013 was within his 'comfort zone' - exploring the Sangro, Orsogna and other places where New Zealanders fought in WW2, all the while enjoying the many and varied experiences that the Abruzzo had to offer, 2015...

The 7 day Ambruzzo trip was recommended to us by our Travel Agent in NZ who was also going to be on the tour From the moment we stepped off the overnight Ferry in Ancona and were met by Michael the week that followed was almost surreal. The divine, absolutely fresh tasting best Italian food we have tasted, to the... More

We were accompanied by Michael on the, “Along the Shepherd’s Track” tour in August. Abruzzo is an amazing and diverse region but off the tourist trail and thus difficult to access. Therefore it was a delight to have the extensive experience of the Absolutely Abruzzo team to ensure that our week was filled with a wide variety of fantastic cultural,... More
