Go Ahead Tours was selected for their attention to detail, and this tour did not disappoint! I must give credit to our wonderful tour director, Alessandra, who has over 25 years of experience, and we were the beneficiaries of her compassionate regard for our tour's wellbeing. She was attentive and even gave us souvenir momentos from each city we visited. I took every additional tour and the tour guides were excellent! I especially liked our guides for the Colosseum, in Rome, a mature woman who was Greek, and thus, she was very personable. Also, Katia, our tour guide for the Vatican and the Catacombs was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The last night was fun in our send off dinner consisted of a dinner theater billed as four tenors and featured an opera troup serenading us during our three-course meal. Great fun and the perfect meal to conclude our action packed 7-day tour of three Italian Cities boasting magnificent art and history!

My husband and I went on this tour for our five year anniversary. It was both of our first trips to Europe and it was WONDERFUL! Our tour guide, Alessandra, was fantastic & our group got along so well. We made friends and always had a blast. It's a wonderful mix of guided tours & free time. It was so nice to not have to stress about travel arrangements between cities because Go Ahead has done it all. We would definitely book again!

WOW. That’s the best word to summarize this tour. 1st class everything, from the private chauffeur upon arrival to the 5 star hotels to the fancy restaurants, but the icing on the cake is the guided tour director. Nicola was BY FAR THE BEST trip mom EVER. I went to Europe by myself and she made sure I was always fitting right in, she was very patient, kind and understanding. Very knowledgeable, oh man she was the absolute best seriously. I want her on every tour

I love history and ancient ruins. Greece was on my list of place I wanted to visit since I learned about the Parthenon at the Acropolis. To my pure delight, we could see the Parthenon in the distance from our hotel in Athens. Our visit to the Acropolis made me giddy with joy. The trip from Athens to Mykonos via SeaJet as the sun was rising allowed me to witness the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen in my life. The view from my room on Mykonos allowed me to have a panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and beautiful sunsets. The crowning jewels of the trip was the visit to the excavation site at Akrotiri and the optional sunset cruise on Sunset Oia in Santorini. Walking around an active excavation site and cruising around the caledera while viewing the beautiful rock formations that make up Greece was breathtaking. We did a lot on this tour, but it did not feel rushed. I learned so much about how Greece was formed and the history of the country. It ticked off all of my travel boxes: beautiful landscape, ruins, learning about a country by traveling around it and seeing how the people of the country live. I absolutely adored EVERYTHING about this trip and would go back to Greece in a heartbeat.

We a great time even though the wind and other circumstances caused changes to the itinerary. The wind caused the ferry to be canceled so we spent and extra day in Athens and lost a day in Mykonos. While in Athens for the extra day, a friend was injured and we had to spend most of the day at the hospital. Through all of the changes and the emergency, out tour guide was great. She helped at the hospital, kept our friend's spirit up and help make all of the changes to the itinerary. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. The trip had great weather with the exception of the wind, beautiful scenery, very good food (I gained 5 pounds), good accommodations and great fellow travelers. This was our fifth tour with Go Ahead and they are have been great. Already planning our next trip.
