We had a very personable and knowledgeable tour guide, Gary Junge. He showed us many interesting places. Well worth the price. We would use G. E. T. Again.
Vacation
It was an easy pace tour but we visited so many places. The sights were fantastic and amazing and awesome. Having seen so many sites in books, there is no comparison to see them as they really are. Our guide’s knowledge was vast and tremendous and he was very eloquent.

Words can not describe this amazing trip, nor pictures describe the beauty of Italy. This was the trip you only dream of. GET Tours and their staff were wonderful and Insight Vacations were over the top. Our tour director , Mitja, made our trip that much more memorable. He made us feel as if we have been friends for a lifetime. The accommodations were perfect. Every location was a new experience and the meals provided were unbelievable. If you've never been to Italy, you have to book this package today.
