Great time in Italy with Massimo as the tour guide. This was the trip of a lifetime as we saw countless historic and amazing things in Italy. Venice was wonderful with the water traffic and Murano glass factory. Florence had so many artistic scenes and a beautiful background. Rome was spectacular with the Collesseo, Vatican, Forum, and National Monument. The food was incredible, we are not fans of wine but it was excellent. We took advice from Massimo and went to several walking areas on our own - Florence Palace Pitta, and the famous Bascillica; Rome downtown National Monument.

We just got home from this trip and had a great time! The trip was well organized, meals were delicious, and the only hotel we weren't too happy with was the Randle in Killarney. The tour director, Peter Murphy, was very knowledgeable and he and the 9 other people (there were only 11 of us) on the bus were super nice and so much fun to spend time with. They made our first trip to Europe a very memorable one. We would recommend this company to anyone thinking of going to Ireland.

The magic began after a very long journey to Zagreb airport on July 12, 2018. We were greeted by Elvis! From that very moment until we said goodbye, he made our Croatian experience nothing short of SPECTACULAR! Thank you yo Smartours and Elvis for the best adventure ever! Xoxo

We were on the middle October 2017 tour. Our tour guide, Oli, MADE us stay out on the tour the first night that we were there--for some of us having stayed up for nearly 24 hours BUT--he was right we had views of the Northern Lights that never appeared another night--He was great--I loved all the tales of the Trolls and Hidden People--he was very informed about all the things that make Iceland so special. Plan to go back. The worst part of the whole trip was my getting called out--cataracts and all--for extra scrutiny at the Reyjavik airport--and that the overnight at JFK was unbearable--except for watching some Peruvians in native costume--recognized from our trip to Macchu Picchu --who were waiting on a flight.--Hated that part of it all--the connection--but loved the trip itself.

Didn't want another week to end without informing you about the absolutely wonderful vacation of a lifetime in Abu Dhabi and Dubai! I cannot express in words the extraordinary tour our group experienced. From the beginning until the actual date of our trip (April 2-10, 2018) my experience with Smartours was phenomenal. Suzanne was wonderful in working with me for my birthday celebration group! She kept us on task and on time with deadlines, And even when it seemed I wasn't going to have enough for the private group, she encouraged me, going the extra mile to make it happen! Once we arrived, our tour director (Mohammed Saleem) went above and beyond providing our group with exceptional service! He represented Smartours with skill and expertise. He shared his impressive knowledge of culture and history of the region and encouraged us to ask questions about things we didn't understand. He was patient and kept us together and made sure no one was left behind, and that was no easy task. My travel group was consisted of people of all ages, some in their 20's, 30's, 50's, 60's and 70's. Having the right tour director can make a trip fun and exciting or dull, boring and frustrating. Mohammed was outstanding in engaging everyone in our group. He was truly the best Tour Director "In the WORLD" (inside joke).I highly recommend taking a PRIVATE group on this excursion. It is truly a wonderful opportunity. We have made new friends and created memories that will last a lifetime! Don't be surprised when you receive a lot of inquiries about other groups wishing to go to Dubai! I have passed along your information to everyone who asks! Thank you Smartours!
