Our Top Example Family Trips to Italy
Hanna at Jacada planned a dream vacation in Italy and France for our family. She thought of every detail to make our trip special - phenomenal tour guides and experiences, reliable and safe drivers, great restaurant recommendations from Michele, and gorgeous hotels in perfect locations. We felt so pampered and didn’t have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend Jacada!
Laurie and I truly enjoyed our recent trip through France, Italy,and Greece. Every detail was well planned and executed perfectly. Your hotel selections were perfect. And, always located in just the right place. Our guides were all fantastic. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to work with. Everything was just perfect. And, FYI , the La Torre restaurant at the Castello de Nero Hotel inTuscany was truly an amazing dining experience. They received a Michelin Star.Thank you so much for planning and executing such an amazing trip planned for our needs perfectly.
Hit on everything, didn't miss a thing. Amazing trip. Highly recommend.
Jacada Travel organized an amazing trip to Sicily for my wife and me. The hotels were all perfect (especially the Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea in Taormina), the guides were both informative and engaging, and the suggested activities were interesting and fun (particularly the horseback riding on a wine tour and cooking class in Syracuse).
Hanna was very flexible in creating various potential itineraries for us and we had a fantastic trip! All of our guides except one were excellent and Jacada gave us a discount on that excursion. I would definitely use them again!
Jacada Travel created us an amazing trip to Italy for my wife and I. All i can say is "WOW" all the private tours and tour guides, the hotels and restaurant choices all exceeded our expectations by far. This was our first time using Jacada Travel and i can tell you we will absolutely be using them on our next adventure! They planned out everything for each of our 12 days down to the pick up times at our hotel for the days excursions and duration's when we would be back at our hotel and the attire requirements for the day and evening which was so helpful. From the moment we arrived in Rome to the drive to the Amalfi Coast to the Island of Capri and train ride back to Rome from Naples and everything in between we were well taken care of. When we landed in Rome the moment we exited the plane we had a person from Jacada right there which took all the confusion away as to where to go not to mention bypassing all the long lines and when we fly back we had the same service once we arrived at the airport we had a person from Jacada right as we got out of our vehicle...and let me tell you the lines were crazy long "it was nuts "and they got us checked in and we were able to bypass all the long lines again making the end of our trip so relaxing. We wanted High End Travel with Top Notch Service "The Best of the Best" and we are pleased to say Jacada provided it! A trip we will remember for a life time! Thank You!
Murray and Heather worked with us to ensure a fabulous experience in Italy. The guides, drivers and other people sent to help us make connections were responsible, knowledgeable and gave insight to dining, history and culture you don't get from group tours or guide books. The accommodations across the board were first class and unique. Jacada Travel delivers what they promise.
Thank you Jacada Travel for an unforgettable experience to Italy. Melania our Travel Designer made the whole process so easy! She developed a personal relationship with my wife and I, taking the time to get to know us and making the trip specific for what we were looking for. Everything was done so first class. Excursions and transfers were all privately done. Most enjoyable vacation we have ever been on. Would recommend the Jacada experience to anyone.
We had an amazing time on our Jacada trip. I love how everything was tailored to our needs, each transport was handled, we had an assistant or a guide or someone everywhere we went, and we even had a backup if we needed to call someone with an issue. Jacada also checked up on us in each new city to see how the trip was going. The trip itself was wonderful and couldn’t have been better planned unless I had more time for vacation!
We have used Jacada for Iceland, South Africa, South America and Italy.Their travel designers are first rate. In many cases they are from the destination of interest or have been to the location(s) and have stayed in the hotels that they are recommending. The continuity that Jacada creates between the various service providers i.e. hotels, excursions, transport is superb. Personal note, the big bus tours are "ok", but after you have experienced a Jacada arranged private driver/tour and conversation that flows from such an immersive experience there will be no going back!
Every detail of our Italian adventure was planned. We didn’t have to worry abut where to go, where to get tickets, or how to get there. It made the whole vacation so relaxing and enjoyable. It was a trip of a lifetime! Thanks so much Jacada Travel
We had never spent or considered spending this amount of money for a vacation. We decided that for my 50th Birthday we would plan a vacation filled with my favorite things in life and worry about the cost later. Given the price tag we were concerned/skeptical that the trip would not meet our ever growing expectations. I can say with full confidence that Jacada met and exceeded our expectations. First and foremost, Melania in the London office really listed to what my wife and I wanted out of our vacation, our preferences, our tastes, our allergies, our budget,etc.. This was reflected in exceptional hotels, the personal attention with the tours/guides, the class of restaurants, the pace of the trip (not wanting to pack the days so much that we would need a vacation when we returned back home). During the trip, we were well taken care of by IDI Travel on the ground in Italy. From the moment our entry flight was re-routed to Torino, we had calls from Veronica and Heather (Jacada, London) arranging for new transport back to Milano. Frequent check in calls from the team were considerate and thoughtful. When we both came down with a stomach virus in Lake Como, the IDI team was exceptional. Not something you plan for but it happens. Fortunately, we recovered in Grand Hotel Tremezzo and Gritti Palace. Not bad places to be on the mend. We would entrust our next vacation to Jacada without a second thought. Our trip was across the north of Italy. Overall a little cooler than we expected but only a little rain. The best part was that there were no crowds, the exception being Venice. Itinerary: Milan - Piedmont - Lake Como - Venice - Milan. Highlights to mention: Last Supper, Barroero Hazelnut Farm in Cortemilla, Marchesi Di Gresy Winery in Barbaresco, Boat Ride on Lake Como, Bellagio, Room at Gritti Palace, Camiceria Ambrossiana for bespoke dress shirts. Special thanks to Nadia our driver/guide in Piedmont (Grazie Mille per Tutto!) Just a vacation of a lifetime. Many thanks to Jacada for such a special holiday.
My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Italy - and first try with Jacada travel. My goal was to see a number of cities, stay in beautiful accommodations, and have private tours set up to familiarize ourselves with each city while learning about the key sites. We wanted to see all the sites, but not be racing around on tours that started early every morning. We're somewhat picky at this point, and can say that our experience with Jacada, and this total vacation, was one of the very best that we've ever had. It seemed that every day - and every time that we left a city and went on to the next - we were off to our next very well organized adventure! Overall what I'd say is that they met every commitment that they made. From the very first pickup at the airport with someone holding a sign with our name, every transfer was stress-free, and actually quite enjoyable, with professional drivers/guides in beautiful/clean cars/vans who were also warm and welcoming, every hotel was 5 star as promised with unique features to many of them, and every single tour guide was top rate (on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best, we would rate every single one of them a 5!) and both knowledgeable and friendly, with a depth of information that made every site special. Even when we had a small issue (which every long trip is likely to have) and we reached out, we received immediate response from Jacada as well as the local provider. As we'd be transferring between locations, the local company would check in to see how things were going, and what more they could do. We would definitely use Jacada again, and are already thinking about the next adventure!
Jacada was amazing! From our initial inquiry to the end of our trip they were with us the entire way. They listened to our thoughts on what we were looking for and designed a trip just for us. While traveling, representatives from Jacada met us at every point, ensuring an effortless trip through the airport, train station, and several tourist spots. Our drivers and guides were delightful, and full of local knowledge. We just can’t say enough about our experience. We will definitely be using Jacada for future trips!
Hannah and Michele were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Changes we made to our schedule were met with understanding and alternate arrangements were offered. The hotel that was recommended was superb and one of the best we have stayed at in our extensive travels. Our restaurant reservations were handled promptly and professionally. All communications were thorough and timely. Everything was professional from beginning to end. We highly recommend Jacada as one of the top travel planners in the field!
Our trip was simply PERFECT! Truly exceptional. Looking forward to the next one!
First, they make suggestions. Second, they listen carefully to your responses and your wishes. Third, they plan what you have asked for. Fourth, the on-ground teams/guides are excellent. What more do you want?
Excellent service and our guides in Puglia were top-notch!
First time we used Jacada Travel... WONDERFUL experience! Tended to our every need!!
Our experience with Jacada Tavel was a 110 %. From working with incredibly professional people in planning our trip, understanding what we wanted the trip to be about , to the finest details that were never missed, has made our trip Unforgettable. Far reached our expectations. Whenever we travel again Jacada Travel will be our first phone call. Thank you for making this such a memorable experience.
Our holiday in Sicily was the first time we had booked through Jacada. They were excellent. The itinerary they developed for us, a party of six, was a good blend of cultural visits to explore the fascinating history of Sicily and more leisurely pursuits such as a day out on the water and a wine tasting. We had a number of excellent guides and our driver for the week was superb. All in all we had a great week and Jacada and their local partner in Sicily did a great job for us.
Milda did such a great job making this trip perfect for my new husband and I.
Planned a exceptional trip for us to Italy and Paris. No detail was overlooked. Extremely professional/creative/detail oriented. They were also very accessible during the trip if anything came up. Would highly recommend Jacada for anyone looking for a top tier travel agent.
Exceptional work on every level. Alex and the Jacada team planned us a spectular family vacation. Every detail was handled, which on a multi-city trip made a huge difference. We couldn’t be happier with our experience.
Our trip was planned and executed flawlessly! I simply told Jacada what I had envisioned for our vacation, and they made it happen. Every detail was anticipated and covered to make this the smoothest and most carefree vacation ever.
Best vacation ever!! Jacada took care of every detail and all we had to do is pack and go. My family and I had so much fun. Trust this company and have an unforgettable experience.
Our travel planners listened to what we wanted from our trip to Sicily and devised an itinerary that was everything we asked for. And more. Lovely hotels in each city, excellent guides and drivers throughout, and a number of really fun, unique experiences. Excellent on the ground support as well. Next time, we will ask for a bit of down time in the schedule. But we would definitely work with Jacada again.
Professional, detailed, thoughtful, worth the price.
Need to Know
When to go
Italy is a year-round destination. Summers can get very hot and crowds do swell, so spring and early autumn are great times to visit. The sun is still shining and it is much more pleasant to explore the cities once the intense summer heat has subsided.
