“A very reliable tour operator.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

Avventure Bellisime planning of seamless transfers and recommendations of day tours help made our Italian holiday into a memorable experience for my family . The selection of the hotels that Jonathan arranged to put us in Rome, Florence & Venice were all comfortable , spacious rooms with ideal locations of historical sites, availability of glorious food and shopping that were just within walking distance.

All the guides we met at our various day tours were well articulated and imbued such passion in imparting their knowledge that it was such a joy immersing ourselves in getting to know the country. I do hope they get a chance to read this.

At Vatican City, true to the wonderful reviews she has been receiving, Francesca is fantastic at getting my kids fascinated by the architecture, history and artwork at the Museum and Sistine Chapel. We could have easily been overwhelmed by what was around us and just overlooked the amazing artwork and details but no, we had Francesca.

The Ancient Rome tour was brought to life by Sergio with his wonderful insights on history and philosophy. We truly appreciate the wonderful books that not only captured my 7 year old's interest but us teenagers & adults too. The tour was really memorable that my 9 year old said that his favorite place throughout our trip was the Colosseum.

After enthralling us with the amazing Villa d' Este garden in the Tivoli tour, Giuseppe went out of the way to arrange for us to savour the famous handmade fettuccine at nearby Ristorante L Angolino di Mirko even though it was way too early for lunchtime and we were on tight schedule to get back to Rome.

Antonella charmed us with her knowledge of art history in the Private 4-hr Florence tour . We did not just view the artworks, we learned about the geniuses behind them and how the art world progressed. My girls now have a favorite Botticelli painting. We're totally inspired to continue to find out more.

In Venice , nothing beats getting to know the place through the eyes of someone holding a pHD in Venetian History. Luigina, is so down to earth, and know when to simplify the explanations that even my 7 year old can understand it .

Giacomo , our driver guide to Pisa and also our transfer to Venice is so amiable and is always concerned about how we were doing. He has great insights on a wide range of topics from history to politics, from food to sports. Giacomo goes the extra mile to point out places and sights that we never thought about.

We truly encountered Italian warmth all through the 9 chilly early winter days we were there.

“Grand Canal Boat Tour - Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

We took a Grand Canal Boat Tour on a water taxi with 5 other couples. For E44 per person I thought it represented great value and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing Venice from the water and having a knowledgable guide explain the sights. Highly recommended.

“Great way to explore Veneto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

I did 2 tours with Avventure Bellissime - the Dolomites Mountain Tour and the Hill Towns of Veneto Tour

Both tours were special for various reasons.

Firstly, my driver/tour guides, Roberto and Giovanni, were friendly, warm and knowledgeable about the surroundings and also history.

Secondly, both times were with small groups (4 and 3 people respectively), which makes it more personal and also allows conversations amongst travellers.

Thirdly, both days had "rare" sunshine and no rain for November. The sky was extra clear. Especially for the Dolomites Mountains, we could see the entire mountain range and take amazing photographs. The scenery were amazing and awe-inspiring. Italy is truly a beautiful country.

Fourth, for lunch, we were brought to local restaurants in small quaint towns, not touristy ones, We got to eat delicious local food at really good prices. I appreciate this as other tours I've been on only bring us to "touristy" places, but eating where the locals eat adds so much more to the experience... and to my wallet :)

Fifth, even before the tours started, the service was excellent. Chiara from the company corresponded with me regarding my tours and kept me informed on whether my tours met the min. reservations required for it to run. She also offered various solutions.

Six, I love that all fees were included in the price. Except for lunch, which we had to pay for on our own (understandable and reasonable prices), all the tolls, ticket prices, etc, were included in the price already. No hidden charges! (Well, maybe except for the shopping I ended up doing at the different towns. :P)

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my tours and would HIGHLY recommend anyone to take these. Two whole days well spent. :)

“Fabulous way to see beautiful Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013


We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on the Venice canals. Christina was an excellent guide. She gave us a lot if extremely interesting information and opportunities to ask questions. We were also able to take great photos due to the manoeuvre ring if the driver. Would definitely recommend this sort of tour- it's expensive but worth the cost. Also the company did require pre payment at time if booking but we had no problem with doing this.
