All aspects were excellent. All guides were excellent and had a love for what they were doing. Bus was excellent and Leonardo was very considerate. Very careful driving skills. Excellent meals throughout. Yvette is your perfect guide. Knowledge of the country and locations is excellent. Her abilities to deal with situations is second to none. She made the trip run smoothly and provided us with a great insight to what were seeing and doing. Yvette has great organization skills and is very personable. She made the trip very enjoyable. We would always look to traveling with Yvette on future AA trips.

Linda Z. (Aurora, ON, CA)

Rome guide was outstanding in every way and the others were excellent as well. Our tour leader Yvette's sense of humour and patience are outstanding. Yvette was perceptive about clients' needs and anticipated them. Yvette has a wealth of knowledge about the history, art, geography, and culture of the Mediterranean area.


It was great traveling with the 9 of us. This was the best tour we have taken with AA. We loved all our trips. Victor is a true professional.

Martin D. (Hernado, FL, US)

Vicor Romagnoli is the best and you know it, Clone him!

Phyllis S. (Spring Valley, NY, US)

Victor is so good he is off this chart. There are tour leaders, and good tour leaders and then there is Victor.My God he is helpful-- Unbelievable! I love him to the length and depth and breadth he has in information. Not to mention his humor and humanity

Richard K. (Vero Beach, FL, US)

Yvette has a great deal of first-hand knowledge of the Mediterranean world, so she not only gave us insight into Italy past and present, she also shared her experience and view of the politics in the Mediterranean region, including Tunesia, which was in the news during our entire trip. Her cosmopolitan background, world knowledge, general intelligence and smooth dealings with restaurants, tour guides, etc, makes her my new #1 Favorite Tour Leader.

Roy V. (Mount Holly, NC, US)

Excellent transportation. Enjoyed all sights and cities. Fantastic sightseeing!

Sheila C. (Bath, ON, CA)

Lindsay was someone we would all love to add to our family. She treated us like we were so special. We were very pleased with the excursions on the tour, from the Colosseum to St. Peters Square in Venice. Assisi, Sienna, San Gimignano, Volterra and especially Lerici with the beautiful Cinque Terre at our doorstep. Florence was beautiful, but oh so busy, then on to Ravenna, Verona and Padova. It was all so great.

Stasia K. (Easley, SC, US)

Yvette is extrememly organized, meticulous in her planning, obviously very knowledgable and has a great sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and hope that we can travel with her again. She works very hard to make the tour a success and wonderful experience for everyone.

Susan G. (Calgary, AB, CA)

It was a great tour. I particularly liked the hike in Chinque Terre, the visits to Assissi, Volterra, Verona and Padua. We had some excellent local guides, especially in Rome,Volterra/ Pisa and Assissi. Lindsay is an exceptional person. Her enthusiasm, poise, charm, knowledge,love of people and travel permeated everything she said and did. I would travel with her anytime!

Suzyn A. (Calgary, AB, CA)

Lindsay showed great enthusiasm for her work. She made sure that everyone was always included. She was very knowledgeable and well read and well prepared and well organized. I thought she was fantastic. I would book another trip with AA just knowing that Lindsay would be our guide.

William W. (Ottawa, ON, CA)

Met all our expectations. Group was just the right size. Great details and history provided at every location. The churches, paintings, sculptures and artifacts, all of historical nature were very enlightening. Local guides were most knowledgeable in their respective area. They were easy to understand and answered every question that was asked. Every local guide certainly met our expectations. Transportation and handling of baggage was first class. Bus driver was most courteous and a very cautious driver. He knew all the hotels and the most direct route to them from each city. Bus was very clean inside and out. Yvette was our tour leader, have done many trips and tours around the world and would rate her the best one yet. A well organized and well oiled machine providing a first class service. Nothing left to worry about.
