Recently I returned from a 9-day tour of Italy planned and led by Studio Arcobaleno Tour (SAT). Words cannot possibly do justice to the incredible experience my group had on this trip. Everything from the planning of the trip to the culturally accurate meals to the selection of our tour leader and tour guides was done with exceptional care and thoughtfulness.

There were 36 travelers in my group; a mixture of high school students, parents, whole families and adults traveling without children. The brilliant way in which SAT planned and executed our trip provided the perfect environment for all of our travelers. To this day I continue to be stopped by students and adults alike thanking me for taking them on this once in a lifetime trip. The structure of our days was unique and unlike any tour I have seen before. It allowed our adult travelers to have freedom to explore cities on their own in the afternoons while the kids had more structured city walks planned.

All of the meals provided by SAT were not only Italian, they were also accurate to the regions we visited. The hotels were comfortable, clean, and were situated in excellent areas.

Our caring and dedicated tour leader Francesca worked like a loving mother and always made our travelers her top priority. She was the first person up in the morning and last to go to bed at night. At one point we had a couple of sick passengers and Francesca was immediately on the phone with contacts at our next destination making special arrangements for them in an effort to ease their discomfort.

The guides that SAT hired to lead us through historic sites such as the Roman Forum and Ostia Antica were the best I have ever seen. They were passionate and knowledgeable, and their love for history was contagious and made the kids excited to know more.

Thank you Studio Arcobaleno for this amazing tour of Italy! Our next trip cannot happen soon enough!!

I can’t thank you Federica and everyone at SAT enough for organizing such a wonderful tour. Every detail was perfect, and of course, you provided the best tour leader ever (Giorgia Merlo)!!!!! I’m so sad to think about having to leave Italy soon Emoticon frown
