We've Toured with Nada's Italy Twice!!

We've toured with Nada's Italy twice - Seacret Escape in 2013 and Jewels of the Amalfi Coast in 2017 - and have been very happy with the personal touch and attention to detail that comes with Nada's Italy tours. Memorable experiences (cooking classes/boat rides/scenic restaurants), plentiful good food and wine, great tour directors are all part of the experience. Would highly recommend!

Experiencing Something New!!

This "Tours for people who don't go on tours" is perfectly named. Every preconceived notion of a group tour can be trashed on day 1. The detailed planning ensures that you will get to see and do much more than most people, with expert leadership and extremely well-educated guides the whole trip. There is ample free time to follow your personal interests. This trip is not about checking off bucket list items, but experiencing new customs, sights, people, foods, adventures, and fun! So glad we did this Jewels of the Amalfi tour and added days in Rome afterward. Grazie, Nada's Italy.

The Best Way to Experience Italy!

From start to finish, our vacation was seamless, relaxing and we felt we totally "experienced" Italy the way it needs to be experienced...food, fun, and friends! BRAVO!

A Huge Grazie!

This trip was more than we had even hoped it would be. My husband and I loved every bit of it. Our dilemma now is which one do we do next? I was beyond sad to see it end. A huge Grazie to Nada's Italy Tours and to Alessandro for being such a wonderful Tour leader.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Nada's Italy Italian Treasures Tour and only have good things to say about it. It was a great tour and done very well. Clarissa, Barbara, Roberto and Luca represented Nada's Italy superbly.

Fantastic Tour Leaders!

Alessandro truly made the trip memorable. Aside from being a wonderful person, he is exceptional at his job. He spent time with each person on the tour and encouraged everyone to participate in the fun things we did. He has a great sense of humor and is a kind and thoughtful person.

Loved the Small Group!

Loved the Mozzarella factory, it was fascinating. Lunch there was fabulous. Love Paestum, Adele was excellent. Loved the fact that Alessandro was able to reorganize the boat ride of the coast to accommodate the rain.

Amazing Tour!

You really put together an amazing tour! We loved all the guides we had (Pompeii, Greek ruins, Rome, Paulo), we loved the hotels, especially in Positano!! And I freakin LOVE Positano! Loved that town! Loved the little grocery store down the street where I'd get my cappuccino every morning. Loved all the restaurants we went to, especially the little town on the way back to Rome on the last day.

Lasting Friendships!

Allesandro is great . We all felt like he was just a very knowledgeable friend of ours who gave us a guided tour of the Amalfi coast. We may or may not see Allesandro again but I like to think of him as a friend. Our driver was Manuel and there probably is none better. Anyone who dives the Amalfi coast on a regular basis HAS to be a good driver, however, Manuel was excellent.

Very Well Done.

I felt bad for the larger groups we routinely passed and avoided getting herded like cattle, I have never been on a tour like that and I sure won't now.

This Trip Exceeded every Expectation we Had.

This trip exceeded every expectation we had. We usually travel solo but this experience has made us realize how great it is to travel in a group. The size of the group is perfect. We were lucky to have the nicest, funnest and most compatible travel companions possible. Based on published reviews we had very high expectations. This trip totally exceeded them. I would rate this a 10+.

Worry Free and Wonderful!

This was the first time I have traveled alone without my Husband. Now he wishes he would have joined me but my first week spent in Germany with a friend did not interest him. I cannot tell you how comfortable Marco made me feel the entire trip, each and every day. He is one special person and without his sincerity and caring attitude my trip could have been a much different experience. When we travel I research each and every detail. Taking this tour was worry free and wonderful.

AWESOME!!

Nada's Tour simply stated is "A Tour for People who do not like Tours". The Tour itinerary could not have been planned any better. The Tour Guides were exceptional and "AWESOME." Our Driver (Manual) whom we affectionately named "Super Mario." Is THE BEST. The additional people on our Tour were "The Best". There can not possibly be a better "Tour Company) than Nada's. We will always use Nada's Tours for all future Trips. We just had so much fun. We always had our new drink, Limoncello after all diners. We will always ask for Leonardo and/or Antonio for All Future Trips.

Keep the Groups Small. Start Times were Perfect!

I want to travel with Nada's again!! Our Tour Leader was so knowledgeable and fun-we felt we were traveling with a friend. We saw places and did things we would never have found on our own! We made new friends in our tour group. Each day was a Treasure!!

Everything was Perfect!

The saying, " A TOUR FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE TOURS" is a perfect description. Having only 12 people with a wonderful tour director was ideal. The group gelled by the first day. The trip was well balanced with history, cooking classes, boat rides, great restaurants and plenty of free time. Nada's also helped us arrange extensions to Venice and Verona which made our trip seamless. We would use Nada's again !!
