This trip was fantastic from the accommodation, experiences, food and company. Albatross Tours think of everything and provide you with a very magical and well organised tour. We loved the flexibility of #mytime and were able to pop in and out of the organised activities as we wished. Maritza our tour guide (or Tour Mum) was amazing and made sure she was always one step ahead of us all. Our fellow tour companions became our tour family! I couldn't recommend Albatross Tours highly enough for all your travel experiences.

We spent way too much time squashed on a bus. 3 star hotels and no time to enjoy our locations as we arrived in the dark and left early morning. Not well planned and not worth the money we paid. Really disappointing. Will not be recommending Albatross Tours!

My partner Mike Coulthard and I would like to express our gratitude to Helen Sheehan (our tour manager) and Ermano (our coach driver) for the service provided on the Italian Grande Tour departure date 27 September 2015 to ensure that we had a wonderful memorable tour.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the tour and have found the variety in the places we have visited gave us a wonderful overview of Italy as it really is.
Helen worked hard to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves, offering suggestions for things to do, places to see and where tk eat in our down time. Helen also organized other treats on our behalf to make the trip more enjoyable including:
*An opera trip in Montecatini
*A gondola ride in Venice
*A wonderful dinner in Maiori at the Norman Tower
*As well as treats in board the coach such as rum chocolates and Baci chocolates.
We found Helen to have an intimate knowledge of the places we visited and she was always willing to share further information that she had sourced along the way.
We were also extremely appreciative that Helen had the foresight to change our program at times to ensure that outdoor activities were completed in the best possible weather.
We would like to also give kudos to Helen in how she managed a variety of different personalities on the tour and always with a smile.
Our driver Ermanno endeared himself to the tour group with his hearty buongiorno's each morning, courtesy and care for his passengers and precision driving in some very tight places and precarious roads. We were amazed at what he could do with our coach on tiny Italian Roads. Thankyou Ermanno for being part of our touring family...
We found the ability to stay at least a couple of nights in one spot (and these not being major cities) to be a wonderful help in obtaining a feel for the real Italy. We loved the family atmosphere of all of the hotels we stayed at during our trip and would be happy to return to each and every hotel if the opportunity presents itself in the future...
Overall we would have no hesitation in recommending Albatross Tours to friends or family. In fact we are hoping to be able to travel again with Albatross in the near future when we next visit Europe...

I've been on a handful of Safaris in east Africa and my trip with Ian and Kawira was by far the best. The guides were super accommodating and had great stories to tell. Couldn't have chosen a better way to see the gorillas in Rwanda and would recommend Ian and his crew to anyone!

    About Albatross Tours

    Founded in 1995, Australia based Albatross Tours specializes in guided Europe travel for small to large groups.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They offer premium coach tours through a select number of European countries. Their tours are enjoyed by Australians and New Zealanders which gives them even more focus and a great place to make new friends.

    Why Travel With Them?
