So it's time I finally wrote a review! 20th anniversary trip with wife to Rome and Florence.
Booked 4 Tours with Odyssey tours. So here goes.
Upfront, the communication with Marianna was outstanding. Responded very quickly to my many questions and developed a very good understanding of what we wanted to accomplish during our trip.
Tour 1 - Day Trip to Capri. A long 14hr day, but so worth it. Bus trip with Carrani went wonderfully. I've read concerns by others about smoking and poor ratings for Carrani, but I can't understand them at all. There is a no smoking policy on the bus and the guides were organized, informative and enthusiastic. - Highly recommend
Tour 2 - Full Day Walking Tour of Rome. Cannot speak more highly of our 2 guides, Aurora for the Vatican morning portion was professional and highly knowledgable. Chiara for the afternoon Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon and Trevi. She was very energetic, highly knowledgeable and so entertaining. Both these women were outstanding educators & much more than just guides.
Tour 3 - Grocery Tour and Cooking Class. Thought this would be fun, but we got so much more than we ever thought. Fortunate to have Chef Fabio, owner of That's Amore (by the Spanish Steps) take us under his wing, shop the Market tour the Jewish Ghetto only to end up in his home to cook and enjoy and incredible meal. He too has a passion for teaching and left us inspired to try pasta making on our own.
Tour 4 - Florence Full Day - Accademia & Uffizi. Outstanding tours of both museums plus a 90+minute walking tour of Florence. It too was an exhausting day - but we just had to pack it all in.
Wouldn't hesitate a minute to book with Odyssey Tours!
