Cuisine

* Roman food is typically freshly prepared and varies depending on the season. Must-try bites include cacio e pepe (a simple dish of pasta, cheese and pepper) and supplí (a fried rice ball similar to Sicily's arancini).  * The cuisine of Southern Italy is often what diners think of when imagining Italian flavors—pasta with tomato sauces, olives and olive oil, zucchini, veal and fish are all featured prominently on menus throughout the region.  * For more authentic meals, try local trattorias,, small restaurants set away from the main piazzas. A typical Italian meal includes wines and the occasional beer, followed by a few sips of after-dinner drinks like grappa or limoncello.  * Greece’s warm climate ensures a constant supply of fresh, high-quality fruits and vegetables. Salads served with aromatic olive oil, feta cheese and oregano are plentiful. Simple grilled fish and meat are integral to Greek cuisine, as well as squid and octopus. Don't miss the spinach and cheese pies, called spanakopita.

Electricity & air conditioning

  • Italy and Greece operate on the European standard 220-240 volts and use Types C, E or F plugs with two or three small, round pins. 
  • We recommend packing a universal adapter, as well as a voltage converter if you plan on using your own hairdryer or other device without a built-in converter.
  • The strength of the air conditioning in European hotels is often not as strong or as cool as what you might be used to in the U.S. or Canada. When air conditioning is available, it is usually regulated seasonally and controlled centrally by the hotel.

I expecting better service in this trip. I was disappointed that rather than get more time in sightseen historic places, tourist guide took us to walk around markets places. Hotel in Naples was too far from the main city or sightseen places, .. As a travel agent, Il consider seriously before recommended this tours package to my customers.

Italy & Greece 2016

Our group was initially traveling to Italy & Greece for our 50th birthdays.. Along the way we added additional friends which made the adventure so much more dear in our hearts.. Everything about our adventure as travelers as Gloria (our tour director) would say was wonderful. Gloria was an absolute joy and everyday enlightened our group with funny stories, recommendations and life experiences (just do it ) that made our journey a lifetime memory to cherish. The hotels, food, local tour guides all beautiful, delicious and so knowledgeable. I highly recommend adding the extension to Santorini as it was so relaxing after 11 days of exploring Italy & Athens. I am already counting down the days until we enjoy our next adventure with Go Ahead in Ireland.

 

Hi Tracy! What a great way to celebrate your 50th birthdays! We’re so glad you were able to share this special experience with friends. It’s also wonderful to know that you enjoyed your Tour Director and that you felt she enhanced your trip. We’re delighted that you recommend the extension to Santorini, and we agree that it’s a relaxing and beautiful destination! Thank you for sharing your experience, and we are looking forward to your next tour with us.

Great time!

This was an extremely organized tour. Everything was prepared down to the last detail. Our tour director, Claudio, was the best. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. Even my kids, ages 11 and 13, had a geeat time. I will definitely use Go Ahead Tours for future travels.

Amazing Adventure

Chiara was the best! She was our "tour mom", she made all the details come together. It made a big difference in the Italy/Greece experience. What an amazing trip. The guided tour destinations were amazing places. There was a good balance of free time and group activities. I made some great new travel friends. We are all talking about another tour. This would especially appeal to those that are interested in history and art. I would have like more exposure to the great art work and museums in these cities. A lot of activities are packed into this tour. I wish I would have done the island extension tour, next time I guess. I would recommend the rustic farm excursion. This was an amazing experience with a great atmosphere and amazing food.

Hi Daylene! We’re so glad you had a great time on tour led by your wonderful ‘tour mom!’ It’s nice to hear that the itinerary felt well-balanced and full of interesting sites and stops. We’re happy you would recommend the farm optional, and we regret that you didn’t do the extension. It gives you another reason to go back, though! Let us know when you’re ready to take another tour with your new Go Ahead travel companions.

VERY best tour director/tour

I cannot imagine how this trip could have been improved. I feel that there was a tremendous value for the price. Wonderful accommodations, superb tours at locations, excellent food. But none of this would have mattered without our tour director Biagio. He took exceptional care of all of us and just is irreplaceable as a contact. Everyone at all locations knew him and he had such great rapport with them. He made the whole trip. Thank you!

 

Hi Sarah! It's great to hear that you don't feel this tour needs improving. We will definitely share that with our Product Development team, who works diligently to design our itineraries. We're so glad you enjoyed your food, guided tours, and accommodations. We are also thrilled to learn that your Tour Director took exceptional care of your group. Thank you for your review, and we hope to welcome you on tour again.

Fun group, fun tour

This is our second Go Ahead tour, back to back from last year's! This year's group was so much FUN, everyone just bonded by the third day and we felt like we've known each other for a long time. Being with a group makes a tour more enjoyable as you have others to share stories with and also make new friends. Our tour director Biaggio was the BEST! He took care of us and our needs to the highest level. He was so much fun to be around also and even with stressful situations, he was calm. The city hotels were just OK, not bad but not great either, some were old and needed an update. However, the Amalia Hotel in Nauplia was truly 5-star - the amenities, the food, and the staff were all excellent! The local tour guides give you a lot of information and insight that you won't get on your own. Everything was arranged and on time and we did not have to worry about anything and let us be completely on vacation mode which was really all worth the price of going with a tour group.

 

Hi Gemma! We’re thrilled that your second Go Ahead tour was a success! We completely agree that sharing your travel experience with a group makes it that much more special. We’re glad to hear that your Tour Director went above and beyond for you and added enjoyment to the tour overall. We appreciate your feedback on the hotels and will be sure to share your feedback with our Operations team. We’re so pleased that you could savor your trip without worrying about the logistics – that’s what we’re here for! Thank you for your review, and we hope to welcome you on tour in the future.

A-MAZ-ing

We saw and learned so much, and yet the pacing was well thought-out and the order of locations was perfect. We had enough "free time" worked into the itinerary to rest up, shop, or do local side trips. Fabio was a wonderful tour guide. The countryside was beautiful and the food was delicious! Everything worked out with a single hitch.

 

Hi Denise! We're so glad you feel this tour was well-paced. We certainly strive to include as many sites and experiences as we can without making the itinerary too full. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

A wonderful piece of heaven!

This was my first big trip with a group and it was such a great experience. The package that was put together had so much opportunity to see great sites and taste great food. Our tour director Leonor went over and beyond to make this trip so special, she really made it great. I learned so much about the history, culture and language. I loved that this tour allowed us to see all the historical and ancient sites while giving us time to explore on our own. Italy was just beautiful. I can't wait to go back! The only complaint I have was that the tour was not long enough! I would have loved to have spent more time in Sorrento and in Nafplio. Highlight for me was Sorrento. Our hotel was gorgeous and only a few minutes walk away from the restaurants, shops and beach. The perfect location and the view was breathtaking Overall I would recommend this tour and Leonor as your guide!

Thank you for recommending this tour, and we hopjavascript:void(0);e to welcome you on tour again!
