What our Customers say about our Private Tours
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
It was an Amazing trip. Perfectly arranged by you. Everything was a A+ experience. What do you suggest we do for next summer?
Hi Barbara, Thanks for the information. We are all adjusting to getting back in the swing of things. The trip was exquisite and we are all so thankful for your help both in organizing our stay and for your thoughtful assistance every step along the way. It made a world of difference for all of us as we worked through navigating unfamiliar territory. Amy- 2015
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.
Barbara, Oh…..it is still hurting my soul and my body to be home. We loved our trip so much. From the moment Enrico grabbed us at the airport – we were in heaven. Thank you for your help and direction for our Tuscany visit. You led us to Il Borro and it was beyond our expectations. Truly amazing from the moment we arrived. We LOVED the setting, our rooms, the village, the pools, the breakfasts, and dinners….It was quiet, wide-open, peaceful…we just spent the days taking it in and there would NEVER be enough days to do that in a lifetime. Our boys were troopers for Florence days, but they would rather be poolside. 🙂 But the days were perfectly planned and not too much for anyone. We loved our first restaurant (Osteria Vini e Vecchi Sapori) so much that we went back the next day!! We cancelled our spot at Obica (don’t be upset!) and went back to Tommaso! We just LOVED the food and the guys who are there were so fun and happy and good to us and our boys. They treated us like family and we are TOTAL suckers for being treated like family. 🙂 Our San Gimignano day was great! The view from La Cisterna (from where I sent the picture) literally brought tears to my eyes. I left the family on the street shopping while I popped up just to make sure I had the right location. An older gentleman showed me our table by the window and I just had tears on my cheeks. It took my breath away – was so unexpected to be THAT beautiful. Our driver took us through Chianti with a stop in Castellina. Another magical day. We had the same driver every day (Giovanni) so we got to know him well. 🙂 He also took us to Amalfi. It was so hard to leave Tuscany. Thank GOODNESS we had another week in Italy or we would have been absolutely heartbroken to leave.
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.

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 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.
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.

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.
