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
Hi Barbara, All of us thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work pulling all of this together for us, We wondered if you have a digital business card that we could all have on file to forward to people? Thank you again for everything!
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 and restaurants made our celebration perfect. Our entire family enjoyed their Tuscany experience and your expertise helped us to create memories that will last lifetimes! J&A
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.
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
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.
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!

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.
