Destination of Choice: Italy & Spain

Going on a tour packaged holiday seemed an unimaginable choice, so we were delighted to have a customised trip suited to our interests.

At the suggestion of our planners, we stayed at different types of accomodation: from B&Bs to mid level hotels, to the Uber cool Straf Hotel at Milan,which made the trip even more interesting. The hotels were close to the main places of interests and also easily accessible to the trains and buses, which made it oh so convenient . The maps were well labelled and we liked the fact that alternative itineraries were provided, which was excellent as we always had choices for each location. We went in search of a few of the recommended eateries, which was an adventure in itself.

It was an unforgettable trip because of what it represented, and because it was unique and catered to our tastes – gave us enough to do without feeling hassled or pressurized by 30 plus other people crammed in a bus singing songs from breakfast to dinner! One tip – spend a lot of time with your travel planner to let them get to know you – so that they know what you like and dislike and can tailor the itinerary accordingly.
