Everything from villas, tours, activities, food,wine, and our lovely tour director Claudia was perfect! We didn't have to worry about a thing! Thank you to everyone, including the great Charlotte staff for making our experience so much fun!
Where do I start??? The beauty and tranquility of Lake Garda is something to be treasured! The villages you go to by boat around the lake, like Sirmione and Salo are unique in there own ways. A world apart from the hustle at home. Then the spectacular majesty and immensity of the Dolomiti is breathtaking...and the gondola ride to the top is amazing. Add to that other places like Verona and the walled city of Montagnana (where the proscuitto literally melts in your mouth!!), the colorful streets of Burano, the romance of Venice herself, and the beauty of places you stay like the haunted Castello di Bevilacqua and you will not want to come home! I loved this tour for the peacefulness of Lake Garda and the unique terrain of this northern region of Italy! The food and wine were fantastic too!!!
Nada's Tour is exactly what we were looking for - a tour for people that do not like tours. We just came back from the *************************** and wish we were still there. The small group makes you feel like you are traveling with friends not a bus load of strangers! The service provided by Nada's Italy was exceptional. Having a Tour Director and local tour guides enabled us to never have to worry about a thing and we learned so much at the many places we visited. Cant wait to go on our third Nada's Italy tour! Highly recommend!
Nada's Italy is every bit of what is advertised-plus some!!! The Italian Treasures tour was even better than we anticipated. Clarissa, our guide, was there every step of the way constantly working behind the scenes to insure that every person in our little group felt taken care of. Her knowledge of Italian culture and passion for sharing it with us was exceptional. This is a fabulous experience for anyone who wants to truly experience Italy coordinating the perfect blend of sightseeing, unique experiences and personal time. Yes, it is La Dolce Vita!
Nada's Italy thinks of every detail and creates the perfect dream vacation. Our tour guides were the best part of the trip! They were knowledgeable and friendly and they treated our group like we were longtime friends that they were showing around their home town. The tours were a perfect balance of traditional tour destinations and unexpected surprise stops in places we never would have found on our own. If you are looking for a tour this is the one to take!
