I had to fight for a refund with the travel specialist, and let me tell you, this is not a tour to miss. Also I was thinking that they were going to take me to Florence museum where most of the renaissance era artists were born, instead they hosted a walking tour of the city which was quite boring. So we did not get to see Picasso or Leonardo Da Vinci's astounding work. If you want to see this, you have to pre-book the museum tour in advance which was a let down. The travel specialist needs to step up their game and pre-inform people about what is included and what is not and give some useful suggestions about what to go see on your own, right on their website. The formal dinner at Sorrento sounded exciting, but there was no such thing hosted. This is even after my email exchange about whether to carry a formal jacket for the dinner or not. They said it is highly recommended and I did, but there was no such dinner. What a joke!! Please note that you have to lug your luggage everywhere on cobble stone streets and all. So my advice to you is travel light and buy the suitcases which have 360 wheels. Overall this was a average tour for the money which we paid. But the sites and the food of Italy, which we bought on our own, made up for a lot of misgivings about the tour. That is why the average rating for the tour and below average rating for the travel specialist. I wish they had charged a bit more to put us up in proper 4-star hotels and given us better food choices at different lunches and dinners they offered."
