This is our second Nada's trip and like the first one, it was excellent. Our tour guides on both trips were outstanding.
Just returned from my second tour (Sole Terra) with Nada's Italy last week. Just like the first tour, I took three years ago (Jewels of Amalfi Coast) it was the trip of a lifetime and exceeded my expectations over and over. Nada's approach to small group tours and itinerary content is spot on. The food was unbelievably good and all restaurant selections are keepers (only gained 2lbs...not sure how I got that lucky). Our tour leader Alice was precious and made it so special with her genuine passion for her Italian heritage and immense knowledge. Till next time.......thanks for everything!
What we enjoyed the most was the excellent tours and Leonardo was amazing. We loved the balance between the tours and group time along with free time. Very good balance!! Leonardo absolutely made the experience for us and the entire trip far exceeded our expectations.
This was undoubtedly one of the most wonderful traveling experiences we have had. It was truly amazing to see the culture and the immense beauty of Tuscany.
We were attracted to the company by the tag line "tours for people who don't do tours." Everything about the tours from the time one gets started in the morning to the smallness of the tour group to the experiences like cooking classes, visits to wineries and living the lifestyle of the "rich and famous" swimming off the back of a boat off the Tuscan Coast is top shelf and memorable. The food, the wine, the trips and tour guides was the best. We've met people on both tours who have become lifelong friends. I am now in the process of trying to set up a tour for some lucky neighbors in my 55+ community. All I can say is that you won't be disappointed. The staff from the US offices to the tour guides on the ground are superb. Strongly recommended.
