“Day Trip to Rome”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

During a recent cruise of the Mediterranian Sea aboard the Celebrity Equinox we had the pleasure of spending one day in Rome. We had pre-planned a one day shore excursion with "Your Tours in Italy" and had the great fotune of getting Aldo Monti the owner as our driver/tour guide to spend our day with. He picked us up right at the ship docks and was actually early as our ship arrived early. We had been on a previous excursion with one of the other excursion companies a year erlier and had some specific things we wanted to see and do on this trip. Aldo took care of these things and did much more to make our day the best of all of our 12 days of cruising. He took us to see things the other companies would never do and he actually took us to a great restaurant for lunch as well as the best cannoli place in all of Rome. I would highly recommend his company and will defenitly use his company and his other related companies for any future travel plans we will make.

“Day tour of Lucca, Fattoria San Michele a Torri & shopping in Florence”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We were a group of 5 well-travelled women taking a cruise who wanted to do something other than the typical Florence sights on June 9, 2013 since we had all been there before. Our decision to use "Your Tour In Italy" for a private, customized tour was totally enjoyable. Our tour guide was Matteo. He was knowledgeable, courteous, prompt, attentive and fun. After a quick stop in Pisa (since some of the ladies had never been there), we proceeded to the lovely walled city of Lucca. Then on to the hospitable winery, Fattoria San Michele a Torri, where we tasted their wine and olive oil (and shipped back home loads of wine to the U.S.). Finally, on to Florence, where we shopped till we dropped, primarily for leather goods. We consider ourselves a fun group of ladies, and it was great to have a tour guide that we could laugh, and sing, with. Thank you, Aldo, Andreina and Matteo for a wonderful tour!

“Excellent private tour excursion”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We booked private tour excursions (all day trips)) from our cruise ports through Aldo Monti and his company YourtourinItaly. They suggest a small group (we had seven people on each tour but the van can accommodate eight) for our tours of Pisa/Florence and Rome from our cruise ship dock. Both of our guides were knowledgeable, personable and caring of each of us. Salvatore (our guide for Pisa/Florence) was a seasoned veteran and knew how to get around both places with ease. He made sure all our needs and preferences were met and even took my husband and I to a lovely liquor store/food boutique off the beaten path so we could purchase some Limoncello liqueur.
Our guide in Rome (Emiliano) was so kind - just a sweet and caring young man! When he left the tour bus for an instant and came back with beautiful packets of postcards for each of us we were all so touched by this gesture of friendship!! When we asked to go to a reasonable sit down lunch he took us to a lovely local restaurant where the food was absolutely delicious, reasonably priced and service quick and efficient. He was especially knowledgeable of his country and spoke with passion that was truly genuine when it came to Italy and Rome in particular.
One small drawback. We had a private guide at the Vatican which I'm not sure i would advise people to pay the extra price for -it greatly increased the cost of the tour. My recommendation is to rent the headphones and here's why. The Vatican on the day we were there (and this was late April) was horribly crowded to the point of being claustrophobic. You could not slow down-you were being pushed forward by the crowd. Then you had approximately 5 minutes max in the Sistine Chapel. The tour guides couldn't talk loud enough above the crowd noise to be heard and we were moving too quickly to linger long enough for an explanation. I know they recommend a guide and in other places like Pompeii it was so worth it but not the Vatican.
You will not be sorry to book this terrific company and its smaller tours (rather the the cruiseship "cattle car" buses). They so much more enjoyable and if you can put a group together so much more affordable than going through the cruise ship (by half or better). Plus the smaller vans can pull right up close to the sights whereas the buses are required to park much farther away!
When you email for reservations you will probably be dealing with Adriana or Aldo Monti-both very helpful and prompt to return your email requests.

“Much better than ships tours”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I arranged for tours of Italy to be our guides for 3 tours from our cruise ship and felt much relief at how good it all turned out to be... Choosing a company from reviews is a worry when you are including people you have never met which happens when you join cruise critic

Our first tour was with Sal and what a gem he is... He was informative, friendly, helpful and a lot of fun for our tour of Pisa and Florence and his driving is amazing.. Driving through Florence was an attraction in itself and we would not have seen half of it if we had had to walk like with the ships tours.. We did have free time but our mini bus was parked so close that we had more time to look instead of finding our way to the pickup point

The next day we did Rome with Aldo, again excellent driving and commentary although a microphone could have been helpful at times and as been mentioned, be aware that with this new pope, the numbers have swelled for the weekly audience, so know that on a Wednesday you will do the catholic shuffle... I believe that numbers should be limited so that only so many can go through each hour.. My friend got so distressed that she couldn't continue and had to miss part of the tour but our guide was able to her find a seat to wait for us

Our last tour was to Sorrento and Pompeii...it was the drivers first day and whilst he was excellent in driving on the winding road to Sorrento and Positano, there was little interaction with us so we entertained ourselves... The guide at Pompeii was wonderful

Having all tickets arranged for us was a great time saver and so much appreciated ... Thank you Aldo for helping to make our holiday to the Mediterranean very memorable and I believe 8 people is ample for these personalized tours
