What our Customers say about our Private Tours
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.
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!
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!
We were directed to the most amazing hotel in Capri by Request Italy. We wanted a very nice room with a view in Capri, and wanted to try someplace other than the Quisisana. We would never have found this hotel on our own without Request Italy. They are actually more of a personal concierge for Italy than merely a travel company. Our room was clean and spacious, with a gorgeous view overlooking the water and our own patio. I would highly recommend Request Italy! ~ JGR
Dear Barbara and Rob, On behalf of Opera Volunteers International many thanks for all you did to make the Verdi Bicentennial so successful. Your attention to detail was second to none and knowledge of Italy fantastic! Until we meet again. J
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.
Dear Barbara and Rob:How can I begin to thank you for the wonderful week of memories you gave us! I think it is unanimous that this is the best family vacation we have ever taken – and there is some stiff competition. The house was perfect. If we had designed it to suit our needs, it could not have been better. Lydia was as good a cook as she was lovely. We all were impressed by the way the property was managed – efficient, yet warm and friendly. Ferdinando, our driver, was the best. I am sure you hand-picked him. He always had a smile. The fact that he spoke English made it all the better. He was delightful when he joined us on the truffle hunt.Of course, the sights are spectacular but without Rob’s explanation, we would not have learned as much which made them all the more enjoyable. Our meals were outstanding with plenty of variety from your choice of restaurants.I could go on and on but the bottom line is that we were all pleased beyond words. Many thanks for all you did to make our time in Italy so wonderful.CC in Atlanta-2017
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!
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.
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
