I am considering a trip to Italy with OAT. I like that there is no single supplement and that the groups are small. Friends have recommended them to me although I have read mixed reviews here and elsewhere.
Should I consider buying my airfare through them? I like to have some control over the length of layovers and the seat I choose.
How about the travel insurance they offer? It seems expensive. I wonder if I could do better buying it elsewhere, although I don't know who offers it. My concerns are if I would have to cancel to due to a family emergency and also what happens if I miss my connections or the flight is delayed?
I'd appreciate your opinion on these topics and also any experiences you may have had with OAT. Is there another similar tour group I should consider?
Oh -- what time in the morning to they usually set out each day? Anyone know? I'm a night owl, not an early bird!
I am a 67 year old solo female traveler, in good physical shape. TIA.
