What our Customers say about our Private Tours
Dear Rob and Barbara, I have already talked my friend into signing up for the future opera trip to Rome, Naples, etc (?) …I am sooo happy about that since she is my good friend. So…please sign us both in, and keep us informed about your progress in the planning!!! 🙂 (How is that for blind trust??!) Needless to say, I am just thrilled at the opportunity of doing another tour with you both. Again, congratulations on a job well done and many, many thanks for everything. AH- Kansas 2015
Even before our trip started, Request Italy went above and beyond, taking care of multiple things which concerned my daughter and our friends. This set our trip planning in motion since their personal approach and care made it clear that our week in Florence would be a memorable one. We were not disappointed and they answered all of our questions and were available 24/7 to make sure that things ran smoothly. Request Italy designed an experience that was custom to our needs and arranged a personal, guided tour complemented by recommendations for self-guided activities that allowed us to maintain our flexibility AND ensured we saw the key parts of Florence. Given our interest in food and wine, they also secured reservations to some of the best trattorias we have ever been to, where there were mostly locals and the food was simply divine! Our day in Lucca was one of the highlights of our week as none of us had ever visited; this city is truly a jewel and not on the “tourist” track. I can’t wait to get back to Italy and have them plan another wonderful time in such an amazing country.
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.
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.
Request Italy turned us on to yet another amazing place to stay in Italy. The hotel was everything you could dream of in a Florence hotel with the incredible views, beautiful room and outstanding service. Through our booking with RI we were given special treatment and great rates. This was just one of the stops on a comprehensive itinerary that was especially created for my husband and two kids. RI are all about details. They interviewed us to find out what we wanted to see and do, what our budget was and then gave us endless ideas on what they recommended, fine tuning it to make sense geographically. We have done several trips with RI. One of the things I appreciated is that you have their personal cell number and throughout your trip they check in with you and most importantly, fix any little problem that comes up. Being foodies, they have a list of restaurants that are frequented by locals, places we would have never found on line or in a book. One of the restaurants in Lucca that Barbara had advised us to eat at, without my knowledge, surprised my daughter With a birthday cake (which was the best chocolate cake we’ve ever had!) topped with a firecracker candle and the whole restaurant singing happy birthday in Italian.

Dearest Barbara & Rob – Just wanted to thank you so very much for making our dream vacation even more spectacular than we could have imagined. Every detail was so well thought out and out expectations were exceeded time and again. Your expertise is beyond compare and we are truly fortunate to have met you both. I just can’t wait to do out next trip with your assist!
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.
This was our first time working with this type of service so we weren’t sure at first what to expect. We quickly learned that working with RI would be enjoyable and stress free. This type of trip could easily have been overwhelming and over scheduled. It was quite the opposite. We had plenty of time to explore the island of Capri, visit the museums of Florence, and relax at the pool of our beautiful hotels. We also didn’t have any unpleasant surprises or glitches in our travel plans. Working with RIhad many bonuses. Through their many contacts, we were able to get gorgeous hotel rooms at great prices, wonderful restaurant recommendations, museum/concert tickets and smooth transitions to our various locations. Staying within our budget was extremely important to us and we were able to do that. Discussing the cost of everything was never awkward with them. There is absolutely nothing that they cannot do. We look forward to the day we can use their services again. MK, March 2012
As you probably know, we have enjoyed the trips with the Seavers and this trip was no exception. One item of special note was the planning that Rob and Barbara started when the unfortunate news came in about Brussels. We were on the way from Naples to Rome by land. For a few short hours, there was a lot of confusion over what the air transportation picture looked like and during that time, Barbara and Rob jumped into action developing contingency plans. Fortunately, we didn’t need them; but, their diligence in that area was very impressive. Always pleased with their trips; but, the service in the midst of a potential crisis was outstanding.
It was an Amazing trip. Perfectly arranged by you. Everything was a A+ experience. What do you suggest we do for next summer?
