Mi experiencia ha sido perfecta, excelente, y un día transportada a miles de años atrás!!. Debo destacar la preocupación de ItalyXP en contratar los mejores servicios para sus clientes y hacer una mención especial para Morgana, uno de sus agentes, siempre dispuesta a proporcionar el mejor tour, hacer el seguimiento del mismo desde su comienzo y mantener al cliente informado de todos los pormenores. Gracias nuevamente Morgana!! La van perteneciente a la empresa Etna Tribe muy cómoda. Giulia nuestra guía excelente, gran conocedora de los lugares visitados, su historia y temas relacionados con los mismos. También gran conductora; segura y responsable. Nos recogió en los alojamientos de cada integrante del tour y a la hora excacta pactada. Muy simpàtica y bien dispuesta. Tanto su inglés como español excelentes!! Un placer su compañía. Valoro mi experiencia como gratificante y sumamente positiva: un reencuentro con la historia de siglos y el contacto con sorprendente arquitectura barroca.
