“Italy is better with Europe Odyssey Tours”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

My wife and I have been planning this trip since we got engaged. Before I get into the tour itself, i need to point out that Rahul and Emily were/ are very patient with their clients, even one so picky as me!

The day tour to Florence and Pisa began at 7 am. Our driver, Giuseppe (Joseph in English), was courteous, kind and very knowledgeable about all the major areas during our tour. He was patient when we wanted to do a little shopping in Florence, even when it took up a majority of our touring time.

We saw many areas of significance including the Piazale Michelangelo, Centro Storico, Piazza del Duomo (Leaning tower) , Basilica di Santa Croce, and (of course) The Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze.

I would highly recommend the Europe Odyssey Tours for anyone, from first-timers to seasoned tourists, to book a tour with this amazing company. They cater to what you want and are willing to do whatever it takes to satisfy your adventurous beast.

“Rahul with Odyssey Tours in Rome is Terrific!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

My family with 2 kids, 12 and 9, recently returned from Rome. Rahul with Odyssey Tours spent 2 days with us (private and semi-private) guiding us thru the old city and the Vatican. Rahul's deep historical knowledge and ability to bring it down to a level that is interesting for adults and kids was amazing. Our kids couldnt get enough of the grizzly details of the Colosseum and could even tell the difference between a raphael and michaelangelo by the end of the tours. Rahul was quick to tailor our time to fit our needs - including gelato, restaurant recs, and a wine education. We all enjoyed our time with him, learned a lot, and had a great time. Highly recommend Rahul as your Rome tourguide.

“Tour of Ancient Rome with Rachel”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

My husband and I used Europe Odyssey Tours in September 2012 for tours of Ancient Rome and the Vatican. In June 2014 we were fortunate to return to Rome with our daughters (teenaged +) and booked with Europe Odyssey again for the tour of Ancient Rome. Emily scheduled us with Rachel from North Carolina. Rachel is in her 20s and related very well with our daughters as well as with us. It was a 5+ hour walking tour and we loved every minute. Rachel is very well informed, a great guide and a wonderful person. We highly recommend Europe Odyssey Tours and Rachel.

Hi to you and your family,

we are really touched by your kind words about Rachel. She was moved by this outstanding review. It's not easy to keep teenagers engaged. But Rachel's personalilty and knowledge make for a great combination to make the Roman experience unforgettable to all ages.
Thank you again!

“Vatican Tour”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We just came home from our amazing trip to Italy finishing in Rome. We had booked a tour of the Vatican with Odyssey Tours after a recommendation from a friend. We were totally amazed by our guide, Lea. It is hard to believe someone can have so much information in her head and be able to answer every question. We had two small boys in our group and she was wonderful with them. I would totally recommend Odyssey and Lea. It was wonderful!! Amazing tour.
Happy Texans!

Reviewed 27 June 2014

Thank you, Alessia, for a very interesting, informative tour. We learned so much about the history of the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel. Your tour was exactly what we were hoping it would be.
