Best small group tours of Italy, anybody?

Jump to last reply

Has anyone done Grand European Tours, or Rick Stevens, etc. We are two well traveled seniors, on the young side, but not into scaling mountains, or all day hikes...still, don't want to see the entire country from the bus either. We like to go leisurely, time on our own, more than one day in one place, etc., with at least some of our meals on our own, yet we often enjoy the details taken care of for us, i.e., luggage, transportation, hotels, etc. We don't like 'cattle car' deals, where you are so constrained and spend a lot of time getting on/off the bus. We usually travel on our own, but for the first time somewhere, we like some help and appreciate that much of the hassle is removed on an escourted tour.

And we like from 12 20 days, not 7...with only one week, you just get rested from the trip, into the current time zone, and it's time to reverse...send me your thoughts. We are considering for April, this year.
