It just doesn't get any better than this!!!
WOW!!! Let me say it again: WOW! I had the responsibility of planning an entire 2 week, first time trip to Italy for 6 of us (3 couples) which was a lot of pressure... When starting my research, and trip planning, the options were overwhelming! If you are reading this review and whether it is your first trip to Italy or a return trip, you can stop right here and contact "Miles and Miles"!
Fabulous! First Class!! Fun!!!!!
I just returned from Rome and my fifth experience using Miles&Miles....wow!!!! Each time is better than the last! I'm amazed at how many hidden gems of Rome that I walked past without knowing it....until another tour with Miles&Miles revealed these wonderful secrets and surprises! Their service is a great value, especially when one has limited time in Rome.
