REVIEWS

This is what our guests think

This is a superior tour company. My husband and I have never had a personalized tour before and Francesca and Giorgio anticipated our every need.The individual licensed guides for the UNESCO sites were very knowledgeable but Francesca and Giorgio were flexible enough that they added local nature preserves when they saw our interest. When they heard my uncle landed in Sicily in 1943 with American forces, they showed me where. Originally booked to see Montalbano sites, our time in Sicily was so much more from wine tastings to a cooking class and shared meal with a local family. Giorgio's driving skills and Francesca's translation were invaluableplus they were both a lot of fun to be with. I would use them for any tour in Italy of any size. We were just a couple but they could do tours for groups of friends or family reunions. I also feel we got not only great service but value with our meals and a wonderful B and B. A truly wonderful trip thanks to them.

Judy and Art Frigo from Chicago USA -May 2014

Chic and Unique Tours Ltd recently organised and managed the wedding of a great friend of mine in Italy. Every detail was arranged impeccably to an absolute fine art. Francesca Sanniti was always at hand to ensure that not only the Bride e Groom were content but also each and every guest. A fantastically well organised wedding, and therefore I would have no problem in recommending Chic and Unique Tours.

Henry B., from Dublin Ireland -October 2015

I'm sitting here in the villa in Tuscany. It's been a brilliant week. The villa is wonderful - and so homely. Francesa has been a wonderful host, organising interesting trips, picking us up, getting a great chef in and looking after us all. Thank you so much for a much needed holiday. x

Charlotte B., York England -March 2013

I spontaneously signed up for a relaxing holiday as I needed a vacation in between jobs. It was the perfect choice! Delicious food&wine, fantastic yoga and great company in beautiful surroundings. Every day started and ended with yoga lessons, and every other day we had fun activities (kayaking, wine tasting and hiking to the top of the volcano) and every other day we could relax at the pool or do excursions on our own. A big thanks to Francesca, Ameriga and my co-guests for an amazing holiday :)
