Italy Bellissimo was one of the best vacations we have experienced. Everything (that means everything) was excellent. 5 stars plus.

Answered my pre-trip questions either through mailed into package or online chat service. Michelle was very helpful throughout booking process.
Vacation
Well organized. Tour director Marco was excellent. However, disappointed that some of the activities included in the tour description was not entirely what I thought they would be. Also, Lido hotel was cramped with mold on the bathroom wall and a bed too short for me (6'1"). Finally, "not to be missed" activities (e.g., Venice canal excursion and Murano tour) should be included in the base package even though the tour price may be somewhat higher. Seemed like highlights were only available for an extra, optional cost.

Some of the hotel rooms were too small. A few of the local specialists could have done a better job. We had hoped to see the David statue on the extra experience but did not as tickets were not available. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip!
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are sorry for that disappointment and will share your comments with Trafalgar. Thank you!

Trafalagar was priced reasonably and provided a truly lovely travel experience.
Vacation
Experienced travel director and associated personnel. Top of the line bus transportation. Being given travel converters and binder for passport and paperwork was a nice touch. Hotels were clean and centrally located. Breakfast buffets were enjoyable and satisfying while the majority of the dinners were fair at best. Everything was done in a timely manner. I thought "Be my Guest" while staying in Montecatini was a huge waste of time as food was terrible and would have preferred to explore the lovely town and shops. Personnel and waiters at Regina Cristina in Capri were miserable and dinner disappointing. Accomadations were acceptable. Loved the hotel in Venice. Perfect location near the Adriatic Sea. Inlaid wood factory was interesting but extremely expensive for the average consumer. The weaving factory was a pleasure to go to, but not a great selection of wares. Pino was excellent, caring and very organized. The bus driver was very professional. I would consider another tour with Grand European Travel.

Our tour was well organized and fast paced. We had a wonderful tour guide who made us feel welcome and part of her "family". I have traveled several times with GET/Trafalgar and have not been disappointed yet. I will continue to book and travel through these sister companies.

Thank you so much.  We greatly appreciate the repeat business.   Thank you for the terrific photo as well!
