Our family traveled to Italy for 1 month & several tours & car services were scheduled through IC Bellagio. We highly recommend their services. The drivers always showed up on time & were courteous with very comfortable accommodations. The tour guides were interesting, professional and spoke excellent English. We wanted to make one outstanding driver noticed - Gaspare in Positano and a tour guide Roberta in Positano. They were exceptional.

We'd definitely ask to use them again. On time, clean, air conditioned vans for our group of 7; courteous guides and drivers who really know the territory and could adjust to our requests as the days progressed.

Our driver had to wait 3 hours for us to clear customs and finally disembark. He was very kind and patient and it was the perfect way to end our cruise - in luxury.
a very enjoyable walking tour of Milan
Reviewed on: 21 Sep 2013
I recently returned from a trip to the Piedmonte/Lombardy regions of Italy. In Milan, I had a 2-hour walking tour through La Scala and the area to the east of Castello Sforesco. I would not have been able to discover churches like St. Maurizio (highly recommended) without this guide. Expensive, but worth it.

We highly recommend IC Bellagio! We had never traveled to Italy before but from the moment we landed our experience with IC Bellagio staff was exceptional. From the walking tour guide in Rome, to the Vatican Tour, to the Vespa tour…then on to a day trip in Bologna and the wonderful lunch at the Farmhouse and Ducatti tour…then continuing on to Milan with an absolutely FABULOUS shopping tour with CHRISTINA (who was MARVELOUS, engaging and knowlegeable)…and then on to the wine tasting and tour of Venice…IC Bellagio had 5-star employees, 5-star experiences, 5-star everything! We will most definitely be using them again and again!

we used this guide in San Remo, Italy for a trip to Dolceaquae. It was a lovely and interesting trip. Our guide was great and he knew numerous folks in the village. We happened to cross paths with a local olive oil producer and as a bonus visited his shop. It was a delightful medeval village and a lovely trip.

I did not have personal contact with IlBellagio but they called our hotel and checked on us during the trip. Made me feel as if they knew where we were and were making sure everything was okay.

Excursions/tours were well planned and enjoyable. We liked having personal tour guides. Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and spoke English very well. Our hotels were lovely...great views, great locations, and great service. It was nice to have a contact available 24/7 to offer assistance when needed. We will use IC Bellagio if we return to Italy in the future.

IC Bellagio could not have been a better fit for our family. With kids ages 10 and 7 we were very concerned about their needs and their interests. They came up with amazing adventures for us. The hotels and restaurants they picked for us were fabulous. They did their best two work within our budget. Liz, our in country "angel" answered the phone every time I called and patiently answered my questions. This could not have been a better experience for my family.

Based on our travels through Italy, it appears that IC Bellagio utilizes the very best hotels, guides, drivers, and restaurants that can be found. We were pleased with all of them and felt very well served throughout our trip. The people utilized by IC Bellagio to assist us with our trip always were extremely professional, prompt and on time. They also were knowledgeable and friendly.

The Bellagio group made my 2 week Italian trip flawless. Every driver and tour guide was on time and spoke perfect English. I rate this company highly. The one time I had a problem, they promptly fixed it and adding a last minute activity , with a car and driver, was no problem. Thanks Bellagio

Our tour guide for both the Vatican tour and the Coliseum/Forum tour was knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. Our tours were top notch. We got so much more out of having the tour guide than we ever could have gotten out of seeing these sights on our own. Well worth it.

IC Bellagio brought Italy to life for us in a very special way! The guides and drivers were such marvelous representatives of their homeland and made us feel so welcomed! They knew exactly where to take us, decreasing wait times and avoiding crowds. We had done a considerable amount of reading prior to the trip and were very interested in learning about the culture, art, architecture, people, etc. The guides and drivers absolutely enhanced every experience beyond our expectations! Special kudos to Angela in Rome, Attilio in Tuscany, Tonya in Florence and Rita on Lake Como! They were really outstanding! We were most pleased with our hotel accommodations. Each hotel had a different and special feel and we loved them all! The staff at each hotel was most accommodating! We hope to return to Rome, Tuscany and Lake Como with an extended stay in Tuscany. We loved the trains and found the arrangements quite easy to follow! Many thanks to all for attention to all the details!
Amazing tours, exceptional guides

This was our first trip to Italy, and we could not have been happier with our tours and guides arranged by Bellagio. Each guide was clearly selected with care, and was incredibly knowledgeable about the specific sites we were touring, as well as the history of the area. Our guide for Cinque Terre had made the trip over 300 times in the last 4 years! Also, all the guides were timely, friendly and were fluent in English. I would not have changed a thing in our itinerary - Bellagio made this an unforgettable trip!

IC Bellagio did a great job planning and coordinating our family Italy vacation. Their hotel and restaurant recommendations were excellent and they did a great job coordinating our travel once we were there. We will use them again and would recommend to anyone needing help planning an Italy vacation.

IC Bellagio is a first rate service company. We had "guest ambassadors" assigned to us while we were in Italy for a little more than two weeks. We didn't need to call them, because everything came off as promised. They called us several times to make sure we were happy and satisfied with their service. We asked one of their operatives to change the departure time for a transfer and they handled the request easily. When you land after a 13 hour flight, it is great to see your name on a sign held up by your driver. They NEVER missed a beat. I highly recommend this company. They care!

Wouldn't want to see Rome any other way. Semi-private tours of the Vatican and ancient Rome were fantastic! We learned so much about the history of Rome in a way that also kept our 2 teenagers interested...not an easy feat!! Skip the line benefit was also a major plus.

Every tour we had was perfect in everyway. The guides were prompt, and very personable. The love and pride for their country was amazing. Each one shared unique tidbits and pointed out things that I would have otherwise missed. Truly our trip would not have been the same without their personal attention.

Jesse Taylor and IC Bellagio put together what we termed our Shakespearian Food tour. We visited almost all the towns in Veneto that Shakespeare wrote of in his plays and then dropped down into the Emilia Romagna to savor the tastes of the Italian food belt. For 14 days we relied on IC Bellagio to deliver us the best of Italy. They exceeded our expectations. Each hotel was of a different style and all were right in the center of the towns that we chose to stay in - very convenient for exploring on our own and finding the non-tourist spots to eat. Our tour guides and drivers were prompt and exceptional. Each guide had a different approach so we didn't get the history of Italy repeated to us a dozen times. We visited several wineries that were arranged, again each was different in its approach and its facility, so all were enjoyable and it wasn't a repetitive experience. Our tour learning how Mozzarella, Parma Ham & Balsamic vinegar were made was a hi-lite, since we also got to taste.

The IC Bellagio staff was wonderful to work with. We had a minor glitch upon arriving in Florence, but they responded quickly and insured our restaurant reservation would still be held. Other than that, everything went tremendously during our week in Florence & Rome. The guides were outstanding. Their English was very good, but being locals, it was nice to have the Italian accent and knowledge. Skipping all of the lines and avoiding the 20-30 person audio tours in the museums was great. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable of the city, art, and artifacts we saw. They gave us great recommendations for things to explore in our free time, as well as places to try to lunch and dinner. Very impressed and highly recommended.
Great but we had a problem one day
Reviewed on: 11 Apr 2017
IC Bellagio was very responsive to a couple requests we made of them for restaurant reservations, etc, and we had to change the day of a bike tour due to rain, which they easily accomodated. However, we were due to go on an all day tour from Rome to Orvietto with a stop on the way, and we asked that the beginning time be moved from 8 am to 9 am, because the stop on the way could only accomodate us at 10:30, not at 9:30. So they said fine, but they didn't move the tour we had scheduled in Orvietto forward, even though they said they would, so by the time we got to Orvietto at 12:45 instead of 11:45, the tour guide told us he had to leave at 1:15 anyway, and we only had a quick 1/2 hr tour of the duomo, rather than an additional tour of 1 hour of the town. This was a big dissapointment. Then our driver (who was terrific) was given bad info about lunch and the winery tasting and that got all mixed up, too, but finally started about 2:30, in a different location! So it was confusing.

The onsite team for IC Bellagio were amazing. The in country contacts were very helpful when we needed them. We did not think we would ever require their help but when we were confronted with a medical emergency, they were there for us. Guido was so incredibly helpful and generous with his time to help us at the hospital. Amazing! I can't say enough good things about the tour guides. They didn't just take us on a tour, they shared a world of art, history and culture that brought that city to life for us. These people have a passion for what they do and it shows.
