Oh, where to even begin…. We have wanted to travel to Italy for a long time now and have encountered many different tour groups/agencies. We were going back and forth for a while trying to figure out what our *must sees* were, how much time we should spend in one place, and transportation (do we want to drive by in a bus and just wave at the sights or actually be able to get out and learn/experience Italy with just our small group). On the journey looking for a travel agency we were pointed in the direction of Selected Tours Italy and it couldn’t have been a better fit! First of all, we would like to thank Laura for spending so much time with us (and putting up with our indecisiveness lol). She truly cared about our trip and wanted us to have the best time (which we did!). When talking on zoom with Laura (many many and did I say many times) she was able to provide so much knowledge and listened to what we wanted to do. We were able to go over the itinerary and change things with her over zoom. It was nice to have the agency based out of Italy because they would know best (where to stay, what to visit, and where to eat). They created a group chat before we left, which included all of the information we needed: tickets, hotels, transfers, etc…for our trip and we were able to contact them along our journey with any questions we had. The whole team (including the tour guides, drivers, and the people behind the scenes at Selected Tours Italy) were amazing and we are so thankful for all the work they put in to make our trip amazing! We were provided first-class treatment every day, from our transfers to the tour guides and the accommodations were truly amazing!! As for the trip, we had two weeks to travel around Italy, starting in Venice, Florence, Rome, and the Amalfi coast. From Florence, we were able to take a couple of day trips to some really cool and historic towns. We visited Siena and San Gimignano and we also visited a boutique winery in the Chianti region, which was fantastic!! In Rome, we visited the Vatican with our private tour guide, we also went to the colosseum the next day with her. She timed it so nicely that we were the first ones in the colosseum and it was absolutely breathtaking. Later on, in Rome, we had a pizza-making class with a small group of people which was a really fun experience. Rome is also really special because we got to meet Ana (founder of Selected Tours Italy). She was our tour guide when visiting the Vatican and the Colosseum/Forum. She made the experience so enjoyable just because of how passionate she is about the history and significance these places hold. Lastly, we headed to the Amalfi coast making stops in Sorrento, Positano, Revello, and of course Amalfi. Absolutely stunning! And the view from our hotel room was even better, looking right over the Amalfi coast. Truly Beautiful! A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!!!

I just got home from the most amazing trip with my husband thanks to Selected Tours Italy. Ana, Laura and the whole team made this vacation one we will never forget but forever cherish. From the moment I had my first zoom call with Ana, I knew I was in good hands. They made sure to listen to what we were asking for but also made realistic suggestions for our itinerary since we also had never been to Italy before and had no idea what to expect. Every step of the way, from initial booking, leading up to the trip, and especially during, they were always available and ready to help at a moments notice. They made it so easy that all we had to do was show up! I honestly cannot say enough good things about Selected Tours Italy and will absolutely use them again in the future. Grazie mille!

Selected Tours was an absolute pleasure to work with. From my first Zoom call with the owner, Ana Serra, to the meticulously detailed planning, to the execution of our trip, everything was very smooth and easy to manage. The private tours and excursions they booked were top notch – our tour guides were all fabulous. We especially enjoyed touring the Colosseum and Vatican with Ana. They arranged all of our transports – from water taxis to private drivers to trains. Our drivers were superb – punctual, polite, and a wealth of knowledge about each city. They took all the stress out of vacation planning. We will definitely use them again when we return to Italy, and we have already referred friends!

My family of five decided to go to Italy for a summer vacation. We were in Italy for nine days. I received a recommendation to talk with Selected Tours. All I can say is this was the best decision we could have ever made. From the first email making contact, to the time we returned home, we received the greatest service we could have asked for.

It started with some emails and a zoom call. From there, we corresponded with Laura until we had the perfect trip for us. They truly listened to what we were wanting and made great recommendations. They would even tell us when they believed that something was too much for one day. After communicating back and forth, we came to an itinerary and made the payment. Within a few days, we had a detailed list of activities, dates, times, pick-up locations, train tickets, and everything you would need.

Once this was done, the contact didn’t stop. We continued to receive emails regarding changes in COVID protocols and any other updates that were necessary. Still, the communication didn’t stop there. When we arrived in Italy, we had constant communication with them. They set up a communication line that was available at all times. Every event that we scheduled, they were early and ready when we got there.

Each of our guides, especially Ana, were a wealth of information. We were not simply walking around looking at buildings, painting, etc. We received detailed information about the history, unique aspects, common misconceptions, and so much more. It would have been impossible to obtain the level of detail on our own.

I cannot say enough good things about Selected Tours. Our time in Italy was stress free, because every aspect of the trip was carefully coordinated and planned. Selected Tours impressed me with their attention to detail and efficiency.

If you are planning a trip to Italy, you absolutely need to contact Selected Tours. I will 100% use this company again for any future trips to Italy, and I will 100% recommend them to anyone that is going to Italy. Don’t make the mistake of going to Italy without contacting them.

Ana and her team had everything scheduled. Tours, trains, drivers, and hotels were planned out perfectly. We loved having our private guide for just the two of us. If we ever had a question, Ana we as a quick call away.
