Planning a family trip to Italy should be an exciting time packed full of promise and possibilities. There are so many things to take into consideration when planning the vacation of a lifetime – your budget, hotels, itineraries, and most importantly in Rome…THE FOOD. Once you begin looking into accommodations and travel once you arrive in Italy, it can all become very overwhelming.
My family and I take a trip to Italy every summer, so I am constantly being asked for advice on trip-planning by Italy rookies. The best piece of advice I can give anyone who is traveling to Italy for the first time when it comes to planning their trip…is don’t. Don’t take any chances, don’t try to handle everything yourself, get help from professionals.
If you are familiar with our site, then it’s no secret that I have nothing but great things to say about The Roman Guy. Despite the fact that my husband and I have been to Italy over a dozen times, we still rely on The Roman Guy’s tours to help us make the most of our trip and explore exciting new and old places.
The guides from The Roman Guy are amazing, they always seem to know the best ways to get around Italy, and can point you to hidden gems to visit that you won’t find in any brochures or catalogs, and of course, they know all of the greatest places to enjoy local cuisine.
The Roman Guy has much more to offer than just tours of museums and wineries though, they can actually plan your entire trip. How many times have you been scouring the internet, wishing you could just pick up the phone and call someone in Italy and ask them about a specific hotel or restaurant while you are planning out your vacation? Well, you can! That’s exactly what the amazing staff at The Roman Guy is there for.
Some travelers are on tight budgets, and they are skeptical about spending any extra money on hiring someone to plan their Italy vacation for them. But, The Roman Guy’s trip-planning services are ridiculously affordable, at just an extra $79 per day. So a 5 day vacation means $79 x 5 for the planning services. You can’t put a price on peace of mind. And, when you book with them, you are eliminating any chances of error, getting lost in a strange country, booking a hotel that you wouldn’t even let your dog stay in, or potentially missing out on the amazing aspects of Italy that only seasoned and local guides like their staff can hook you up with.
If you have ever been lost in a foreign country, unable to speak their language, and totally panic-stricken, then you are well aware that making sure that never happens again is totally worth the price. This summer when my husband and I got off the plane, a driver was there waiting for us, ushered us into a van with air conditioning and chilled water waiting for us, and took us straight to our hotel to get settled.
What I love most about using The Roman Guy’s services is that I can guarantee that my family is getting an authentic Italian vacation, with amazing food, stress-free traveling, and accommodations that will keep us content and comfortable.
The staff at The Roman Guy handled all of our dinner reservations, had a driver at our beck and call that spoke English and answered all of our questions perfectly, and made sure we had a clean bed to relax in every night after an exciting day packed full of activities and tours that they had planned. When my husband and I travel to Italy, we truly feel like royalty thanks to their amazing services.
If you are planning a trip to Italy in the near future, you can head over to The Roman Guy’s official website and fill out a short form letting them know when you will be arriving, who you are bringing along with you, and some of the things you hope to check out while you are there. Shortly after submitting your form, The Roman Guy will match you up with a personal travel planner who will contact you and begin planning your trip for you. It almost sounds too easy, but that’s really all there is to it!
