"Everything was very organized. I want to thank YMT tours, and especially Tammy Lupman, for giving me the strength to travel solo. Initially, I was going to travel with my sister, but she changed her mind. When I called Tammy and told her, she suggested I go by myself. I said no, I travel often but never on a tour, and even less often do I go by myself. She said I would have a wonderful time because I would be taken care of, and she convinced me. And she was right. The "Classic Italy tour" was excellent and very well-organized. I really enjoyed Orvieto, and I fulfilled a wonderful dream to have seen the Hotel Splendid on Lake Maggiore. We all said it was absolutely beautiful. We all wanted to stay there at least a day to fully enjoy the scenery and the hotel. I also would like to pass on my thank you to JoAnn our tour manager…Thank you Tammy, JoAnn, and, of course, YMT Vacations. I enjoyed everything. Size, excellent tour guide etc."

"Our guide for YMT was named Joanne, and she was EXCELLENT!!!!!! We have been on several tours and our YMT guide Joanne was the best we ever had. She did a great job. The trip was great… Everything was planned for us and worked out great, all the tour guides were on time and knew what they were talking about. All the tour entrance fees were taken care of, that's much better than nickel and diming your guests."

"[Tour manager] was wonderful! He took such good care of us and made sure we had a wonderful tour. On the bus rides, he gave us good information, but didn't talk too much, which was appreciated. He definitely enhanced the tour experience… I loved the fact that everything was taken care of for us. We didn't have to worry about where to go, how to get there, what to eat, hauling around our luggage, the language barrier, whether we were safe, etc"

"The local guides were great...I especially liked using the "whispers" radio system - kept us connected, could hear the information, without crowding around the guide. This was my dream trip to Italy, and it met all my expectations. I have almost 1100 photos for the memories...I will never forget the beautiful things I saw and the feelings I had during this trip. I saw everything I wanted to see in Italy, and more I had not known about. "

"[Our tour manager] made the trip. We still talk about her. She must be one of your most valuable employees...First time and will do it again. I believe it the best way to see a country for the first time as you will know if you want to go back and where you would go back too."

"This was a trip of a lifetime and was so spectacular. We didn't have to wait in lines, all tickets were purchased previously no waiting, if we added anything it was handled and reserved before we even arrived, all details were accommodated, very customer focused, Alnsalmo and Laura were fantastic... Loved this trip. It allowed me to relive my childhood and see everything that reminded me of my Italian family that have passed. They were all there with me! "

"Our Tour Manager Dimitri was professional, knowledgeable and helpful. He went above and beyond the call to tend to the needs of all [the] people in our group. I loved the way the tour was planned. I've been to Italy before, and got to see some towns I've never seen. Classic Italy gives a great overview of the history and culture of Italy. Would highly recommend to anyone whether they've been to Italy or not. The amount of things we got to do and see in 10 days was impressive. We got to see the ancient history, the Renaissance History, a few things left from WWII and the modern sense of Italy. It's a good comprehensive tour of Italy."

"This was a great opportunity to get a "taste" of Italy and the cities that we may go back and visit on our own some day...This particular trip hit almost all the "targets" in Italy that we had previously talked about.

"Claudia, our tour manager was fantastic! She was very attentive and sensitive to my dietary needs. She was always very knowledgeable and helpful. She offered helpful suggestions and kept the group moving together. She enhanced the experience and I feel blessed she was our guide...The Classic Italy tour was incredible! It offered an amazing overview of many cities and left me with a deeper understanding of the country. It was incredible to walk through the history of Rome and Florence and end in the future of Milan. I will be back to explore more cities! The Classic Italy tour was an ideal trip. It offered big cities and small intimate towns. The trip showed the soul of Italy and it make me want to come back to explore even more!"

"I thought the tour guides were excellent. Very informative. Our tour guide was Laura and she was excellent. She did her best to get us where we had to go and on time. She made our trip a pleasure. I would recommend her as a guide to everyone. We saw so much in such a short time. We had the best vacation you could ask for. We waited a long time to go to Italy and we were thoroughly pleased with everything about the trip. We would recommend it to anyone. We just had a great time and wish everyone could experience a vacation like we did. "

Also, very careful that no one is left behind. I would highly recommend her for other tours. This was our first experience with YMT and we liked it. We would like to use these services again. Great value for the service provided including most of dinners, all breakfasts, and reasonably good quality of hotels, excellent tour director, and good transportation"

"Our guide Ellen was excellent, knowledgable, caring and A+. Excellent, informative, YMT does update travelers on the tour with follow-ups etc. Both trips we had excellent, informative and truly professional guides - Ellen Santucci in Italy and Joe in Ireland. I would also recommend the guides tape their presentation that travelers could purchase. I truly wish I had taken a tape recorder to tape Ellen's documentary."

"I love YMT tours. I think it's the best bargain in the industry. I have been to Hawaii, Alaska, Ireland and Italy with YMT. If I go on another tour to another destination, I won't go with anyone but YMT. I've done bus tours and a cruise with YMT and have been amazed at the places I've seen, the people I've met and the professionalism of the tour guides...We have loved all of our trips and have been impressed with the guides, hotels, meals, and sights chosen for us to visit. We've learned a lot too and that's what makes it the most fun! "
