Surpassed My Highest Expectations

I would like to thank Antonio Mauriello of Savour Italy Tours for serving up a truly authentic travel experience. As an adventurous traveller, I’ve had the opportunity to take in a wide range of places. On this trip criss-crossing Italy from Rome to Palermo, Savour Italy has surpassed my highest expectations. Custom travel and local, local, local were always in the mix — not an easy task for a company providing experiences ranging from days to weeks. For me, this trip was truly exceptional due to Antonio's first-hand knowledge of Italy’s culture and regions, plus the respect he has earned from Italy’s hospitality leaders. If you want to live and breathe the flavours and colours that are Italy, then Savour Italy is a trusted travel companion. I have only one request: I would like to give Savour Italy 6 full stars, instead of 5. Grazie Mille!

Trip of a Lifetime!

22 days of Italy the Savour Italy way! My spouse and I just had the trip of a lifetime! We went from Rome, Amalfi, Florence, Tuscany, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Turin and returned from Venice. We experienced the best hotels, amazing tours with professional and knowledgeable tour guides, and smooth transfers by train. We felt like VIPs. Some of the highlights were the visit to the Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel, the Amalfi lemon grove tour and lunch, the Tuscany wine tour and the Langhe wine tour (Barolo). Savour Italy curated the entire excursion. We found the schedule and pacing to be perfect! I've recommended Savour Italy to family and colleagues. The Savour Italy team was a pleasure to work with.

Totally Delighted

As an older tour group participant, who had not taken part in organised tours before, I was totally delighted with my Savour Italy experience in Southern Italy and Sicily. There were a couple of days that I found quite challenging but was amazed with what I could accomplish. I always felt safe and secure with our tour leader, Antonio and our super driver, Giuseppe. The itinerary balanced more arduous days with quieter ones and the choice of accommodation was excellent. The food and wine was outstanding, and I could really see that his close personal contact with the experience providers added an extra dimension to our enjoyment.

Very Personalized and Immersive Experience

My wife and I have been on 4 tours of Italy with Savour Italy Travel and are registered to go on our fifth. Each of the these tours have been nothing short of SPECTACULAR!!! Enduring memories were created on each. The tours were well organised, professionally run, and appropriately paced. You see some of the classic sights, but it is the long list of undiscovered, hidden gems that really sets these tours apart. You visit wonderful places you would never have found on your own (or on any other tour, for that matter). You end up feeling like a local and get the chance to make a genuine connection with many of the people in the areas you visit. You consume the same delicious foods and wines that they do. In addition to the magnificent sights and delectable meals, you come away with a profound understanding of the people, culture, traditions, food, and wine of the regions.

Unique and Memorable

I've just completed the 13 day Southern Italy and Sicily tour with Savour Italy Tours. It's my second tour with this company and I was once again totally in awe of the entire experience. The tour was a bit more customized as a food and wine tour for our small group of 19 friends and colleagues. The final itinerary was just perfect, a mix of sights, tastes and downtime. The hotels Antonio selected were all wonderful, and all food and tasting experiences were unique and memorable. Antonio's passion for his homeland and his connections to the people who live and work here is heartfelt. The trip was snag-free and part of that was also the amazing transportation he had arranged. We felt safe and secure as we navigated some very challenging switchbacks and narrow streets. I cannot recommend Savour Italy Tours enough and I looking forward to my next adventure with them.
