What our Customers say about our Private Tours
We have traveled six continents in a variety of ways, from tours to completely independent. The trip planned by Request Italy was the best. It exceeded our expectations for hotels, restaurants, personal service, and private drivers and guides. We relaxed completely, saw and did just what we wanted to do, and went at the pace that suited us. We are totally spoiled by the service provided. – Jane C. April 2012
Request Italy was extremely attentive in all aspects of our time in Italy. They made sure to stay in contact to make sure we were being well taken care of. Class One service.

Although their specialty is Italy, Request Italy put together a fabulous trip to Paris for my wife and me. The drivers, tour guides , and hotel accommodations they arranged were all excellent. They made dinner reservations for us every night at restaurants that are their personal favorites , and now they are ours as well. The schedule they helped us plan allowed us to see and do the things we wanted, and they introduced us to places we were unaware of that we also greatly enjoyed. It was, so far, the trip of a lifetime! When we go to Europe again, we will consult with Barbara and Rob.
I proposed to my fiance’ on a surprise birthday/engagement trip. We both work a lot and I didn’t have time to plan a nice trip after finding and ordering the ring. I got on Trip Advisor and found this beautiful hotel. It only has 14 rooms and they do not book for everyone. I came across Request Italy, a travel planner, in one of the reviews I read. I contacted them and explained how I wanted to stay in the hotel in Rome and needed four days planned in Rome…and I’m planning to propose to my gluten-free girlfriend so could you also line up all of our restaurants and arrange for a photographer to capture the big proposal? Request Italy said no problem to everything and proceeded to make every moment of our trip stress free and wonderful. ~ A. B.
Request Italy made our Italian holiday a trip of a lifetime! If only this service was available in other countries. It was definitely money well spent.
We found Request Italy online but were not prepared for the service and attention that we got with their service. They found us a hotel in Rome that is truly a jewel. Because we booked through RI, and the manager is a friend of theirs, we were upgraded to a two floor luxury suite with a wraparound balcony overlooking the Spanish Steps. It was honestly one of the most fabulous, special hotel experiences we have ever had. We never would have found this hotel without Request Italy. They act as a personal concierge for any and all of your needs in Italy. ~ C. L.
Dear Barbara and Rob, How can we thank you enough for making our dream vacation become a fantastic reality. Your choices of activities, food planning, restaurants, made our celebration perfect. Our entire family enjoyed their Tuscany experience and your expertise helped us to create memories that will last lifetimes.
Location, location, location! Hotel Ilaria, situated shortly past the entrance of the walled town of Lucca, has to be the best location as well as the most gracious and accommodating place to stay to explore this very special Roman city. Our American/French/Portuguese family met here to begin an eight day celebration of birthdays, anniversaries and family time in Lucca and at a rented house overlooking the Mediterranean. Barbara and Rob Seaver of Request Italy made our reservations here and planned two very special birthday dinners for us in Lucca and Pietrasanta. Everything was perfect, from the room upgrades on arrival to our first pre-dinner Prosecco cocktail gathering on the hotel terrace overlooking the adjoining park. Our heartfelt thanks to the staff at the Hotel Ilaria and to Request Italy (requestitaly.com) for their superb arrangements and cultural expertise. Rob’s expert advice on where to find Lucca’s hidden art treasures and Barbara’s brilliant choice of Mariano Tuccori to prepare a selection of delicious cooked food and wines to take to our house on departure the final morning from the Hotel were excellent. Without reservation, I highly recommend the Hotel Ilaria and Request Italy for your Lucca and European visit!
In July, 2014, our family, (ages 11-80 yrs.), had an incredible journey to Italy – Rome, Lucca, Tuscany and Venice. We are forever grateful to Request Italy for putting our itinerary together and making all the arrangements for our hotels, restaurants, the Villa, tour guides, and land transportation. All went off without a “hitch” – we just had to show up! It truly was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you, Request Italy from the G’s in LA
We have had the pleasure of two trips planned by Barbara and Rob, the first was a 12-day adventure across northern Italy and the second, 11 days in Paris and surrounding villages and points of interest. Both were enriching and fun beyond words. Whether your passions bend to opera, symphony, food—both superb restaurants and cooking classes, wine, art, gardens, festivals, or museums and artists’ studios—actually, all of these(!), a trip with Barbara and Rob Seaver of Request Italy will never disappoint. A specially planned trip for two or a group of 12, every detail is artfully planned to awaken all your senses, enjoy every moment and treasure everyone you meet. Your trip will be a cultural delight and loads of fun, wherever you go. Simply said: Travel with Request Italy, or stay home!
