What our Customers say about our Private Tours
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.
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
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.
T. D., April 2012
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.
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.
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.
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.
It was an Amazing trip. Perfectly arranged by you. Everything was a A+ experience. What do you suggest we do for next summer?
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.
