The whole experience was absolutely top-notch. The meals, the hotels and the tour guides (both local and permanent) were remarkably informative and helpful. I should, however, reserve the highest praise for our guru & guide, Rasha Salem and Francesca. They went above and beyond what could have been expected – and we did expect a lot. Their ability to adapt to unforeseen circumstances; closed roads, rough sea and incredible crowds was superlative. The choice of venues and activities was, obviously, well thought out and our individual requests were catered to.
Wonderful experience! Approach all-inclusive tours are very professional making travel stress-free. They pick you up and deliver you to the airport where you are met by your trip guru who accompanied us from start to finish. We also had a local guide in Italy who was with us from start to finish. Her job was to get us from one place to the next as well as keep us informed about our day and local sites while we travelled. Expert local guides were also used at most attractions. They were really knowledgeable and made each attraction come alive. These guides made all the difference to ensure we had a superior trip. Our trip guru RASHA SALEM was outstanding. Caring, quick to address any issues, helpful and knowledgeable. She is a real gem. Hotels and especially the beds were great. Breakfast was typical European fare, all lunches were great to excellentâ€¦.especially the wine tastings. Food and drink were plentifulâ€¦..always past full each evening. The itinerary and tours were outstanding. Highly recommend Approach Tours Signature Italy trip.
The Signature Italy Tour was the trip of a lifetime for my partner, Pina and me. Approach Tours did an amazing job organizing every detail from picking us up at our home to ensuring we stayed at top hotels while enjoying wonderful meals each day. Our Group Guru Rasha Salem was the best. She was very caring and detail-oriented. She made sure we all had the best time ever! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Book yours today.
I joined as a solo traveller and had a fabulous holiday. Our group guru Rasha and our Italian guide Franschesca helped to make the trip far beyond what I expected. From incredible sightseeing (including wineries) to amazing local lunches and lovely hotels, I canâ€™t say enough how much I enjoyed the 16-day tour.
This was an experience of a lifetime from beginning to end. A fantastic group of people who made this trip unique and fun. Our Guru (Rasha Salem) and our Italian tour guide (Francesca Anghileri) weâ€™re 100% dedicated and committed to the whole group 24/7.Â They were extremely organized, knowledgeable and very resourceful, it was very obvious that they had done this before. We also appreciated that in some of the major cities they included â€ślocalâ€ť guides who shared all the pertinent information and history of the places we were visiting!Â Amazing!Â Approach advertising about literally being all-inclusive, they are not lying. We just had to get up in the morning and be on time for the busâ€¦ they took care of everything else.Â Kudos to the Approach team(s) who work in the background – from the time of booking, pick up at home, travel arrangements, hotel(s) bookings, buses, events scheduling â€¦ and so much more!! THANK YOU!
Definitely will travel with Approach Tours again. Many opportunities were available as part of this group that I would not have had travelling on my own. I loved having the opportunity to experience so many various activities (wine tastings, cheese tastings, boat trips, etc.).Â
I loved the variety of excursions, from wine festivals to small towns, to Rome and the Vatican. Roberta took us on a real tour of Italy that I will remember forever.Â
Our favourite part was the gondola ride in Venice. All the boat rides were really goodâ€¦ Lake Garda, Cinque Terre, Sorrento/Amalfi/Positano. Enjoyed the beautiful churches in Venice, Pisa, Rome and Florence. All stops had beautiful architecture. Lastly cannot forget Rome and the Vatican, amazing to see in person!
I loved Verona for its musical associations, Cinque Terra, San Giminagno, taking a gondola ride in Venice, and Pisa (I had visited it before and was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it so thoroughly). Very interesting commentary by the guides! Also greatly enjoyed the wine tasting in Vineyards.Â
I enjoyed my time in Cinque Terre. I went for a swim in my clothes! I also enjoyed the boat ride at Lake Garda. I like that everything is included, including tips. Our Guru, Caroline was very helpful and good at creating good group cohesion.Â
The fabulous local guides were the highlights. Learning the history of the area was my favourite, but I also really enjoyed the â€śdown daysâ€ť at Positano, Amalfi, Capri, and Lake Garda. All the planning on behalf of Approach was a bonus to me, as it was the firsttime I had travelled â€śsoloâ€ť. Bravo!!Â
Highlight was the variety, spirit & kindness of my fellow travellers. I particularly enjoyed several places I had never been to before and benefitedÂ from the knowledge & humour of the local drivers & guides. I took the opportunity to explore some places on my own and rekindle my personal interests and confidence in my ability to navigate new places.Â
