  • It was a pleasure, and a stress-reliever, to have True Trips arrange our vacation. We simply gave our desired locations and length of stay, and True Trips made all of the arrangements from hotels, tours, transportation within Spain. All of the choices made by True Trips were spot on; from the selection of hotels, tours, and transportation arrangements. Communication was easy - through email by my choice - and True Trips was able to re-arrange tours and pick-ups after our arrival plane was delayed one day due to bad weather in the U.S. Thanks True Trips for being flexible and working to accommodate our changes. I would recommend True Trips for anyone looking to travel to multiple locations in Europe.

  • I will never use any other organization for travel, since using True Trips. They planned the perfect vacation for my family and me. They helped us work through and adjust our vacation, after an 8 hour delay at the airport, and we never missed a planned activity, or felt like we missed any vacation time. I have already recommended True Trips to 5 families. "THE BEST!" is the most fitting description of True Trips and their staff.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our tailor made trip. Everything, every place, every attraction was flawlessly attended to. Every transfer took place smoothly, each hotel was superb, and the guides were fantastic. We especially enjoyed the Patmos location and hotel as well as the sailing adventure. Our activities throughout the trip were varied and authentic, allowing us to see some well-known attractions as well as some off the beaten track attractions. Although we could easily repeat this trip, it simply wet our appetites to see more of Greece on our next trip.

  • Having worked with True Trips last summer and having had an incredible trip throughout Greece, our expectations were high for our Italian trip. True Trips did not disappoint - we received the same top notch service for our trip to Italy as well! Every detail was taken care of for us so that WE could enjoy our vacation, which is hard to do when you have 5 children! The hotels were extraordinary, the staff was always extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and each driver became a tour guide themselves. Thank you for another trip of a lifetime. We look forward to traveling with True Trips again soon!

  • All transfers and tour and hotels were top notch. The service was enjoyable and the agents understood our families’ needs and expectations and actually exceeded them.

  • This was our fourth True Greece/True Trips experience. All four were exceptional luxury travel experiences. We expect the finest from your company, that is why we continue to travel with you, and you have delivered in every case. From the hotels, to the transfer drivers, to the tours and their private drivers and guides, all is exceptional. Thanks for your professionalism. We will be traveling with you again-soon!

  • Do not change the system in order to save money, it works. I felt very comfortable knowing if there was an issue, I could reach out and someone would be there for me. The fact we had established a relationship prior to the trip paid off when an issue arose. They were my friends trying to help me versus some travel agent on the other end of the phone.

  • This was our first time using True Trips and also our first trip to Italy, so we were a bit edgy at the outset. A friend had recommended True Trips to us, so we decided to give it a go. We couldn't have been more satisfied - the transfers were timely, the hotels were great, the staffs everywhere were friendly, the guides were knowledgeable and personable, the tours were fun, and the drivers were helpful and almost served as mini-guides. We are already thinking about our next trip! Thanks for a great experience!

  • I really loved the tour guides. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone was on time and friendly. Food was great! Thank you for another great experience! I did True Trips and will book with you on many more holidays!

  • True Trips planned my husband and me the most PERFECT honeymoon we could have ever imagined! Neither of us had ever been to Europe before so we attempted to plan the trip ourselves to begin with. We had no idea which cities to visit or where to even begin. When we did narrow it down, we were clueless about where it was safe to stay, where to stay, how we were going to get around, what activities we should do, where to eat, etc. Our friends told us they had used True Trips for their honeymoon and went on and on about how great and easy it was. We are SO happy we listened to their suggestion and had True Trips plan our honeymoon as well. We did not have to worry about any transfers from the moment we landed in Europe. The ease of getting from place to place was way easier than I could have imagined. We started in Athens, followed by Santorini, Amalfi Coast and then Rome. The Amalfi Coast and Santorini were our two "main stops" and were absolutely gorgeous. We were also pleasantly surprised by Athens and Rome, we had so much fun and did tours in each, which were amazing and we loved both tour guides! While in Santorini, we did get a bit lost getting to one of our pick-ups so I called True Trips and they immediately arranged an alternate pickup. I was very impressed with their customer service and how quickly they helped us out. It was so helpful to have True Trips provide recommendations and take all the planning off our plate. We highly recommend True Trips and are already looking forward to booking another trip in the future through them.

  • We could not have been happier with our trip. It was really a trip of a lifetime and we will cherish the memories and that it was so seamless and we didn't have to worry about anything!

  • Your guides are always very professional, knowledgeable and interesting. The vans are clean and drivers pleasant and helpful. The experience provided by True Greece is exceptional.

  • My True Greece experience far exceeded my expectations. Every new destination was an entirely new experience and we loved the surprise in that. Nothing was predictable. I am so happy we decided to take the tours. It was like being in a college history class! I have already started on my True France planning for next year and have recommended True Greece for my daughter's honeymoon.
    image Sue Leporati, Livermore, CA, 2016
  • My husband and I booked our honeymoon through True Greece, and are so happy that we did. We could have never gotten the luxury, full-service experience through any other travel agency, for the amount that we paid. The value is amazing, and the authentic experiences that True Greece recommends are great. Having the transfer services to and from our hotel the entire trip were invaluable, and really made our vacation so much more relaxing. True Greece is a five-star option for any honeymoon vacation.

  • We used True Greece in 2013 and were completely satisfied with the experience they gave us so we decided to use their services for Paris and Spain this year. Once again, they made everything so easy for us to enjoy our trip at nice locations with very good tour guides and very responsive to issues as they infrequently occurred during the trip. We look forward to traveling with them again.

  • True Greece provided our family with a trip of foremost excellence...demonstrating exemplary service before, during and even after our visit. Hotels were superior, arranged private tours were highlights, transfers were top-notch and seamless. Throughout everyone True Greece put us in touch with was extraordinarily pleasant and accommodating.

  • I've always dreamed of going to Italy! After my experience with True Greece I knew I had to use True Italia! As expected I was not at all disappointed. I went with a group of 4- we were all over the moon regarding True Italia choice of hotels and locations. Their booking process is very intimate which makes the trip even more special. I appreciate their attention to detail and location knowledge-it helps me relax and enjoy myself knowing they've already thought of and handle most things that could go wrong. I will continue to use True travel agency for all the destinations they service. Thank you all for another amazing trip!!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Italy due to the True Italia team! From the moment we left our house till the time we returned everything was taken care of for us! There were no worries about hotels or transfers, we were able to sit back and truly enjoy the wonderful trip they helped us plan! I cannot say enough about the hotels we stayed at in each location, they were absolutely perfect! It was so easy to go from destination to destination (Naples, Capri, Amalfi) because our transfers were friendly, English speaking, and there to assist in any way possible! Thank you so much to everyone that worked so hard to make our special Italian trip come true! Ciao

  • As expected, True Italia provided the best hotel rooms in the best hotels, reliable, safe, A+ transportation, and the most professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides, some of whom are published university professors! We have trusted True Greece/True Italia 4 times now with our travel, and will continue to use them. We recommend them to all of our friends, whether they want our recommendations or not!

  • If you want an opportunity to relax and really get to know Paris through the eyes of Parisians arrange your hotel and private guided tours through True France. Our guides were friendly, informative, and flexible providing my family a personalized insider's view to a beautiful city and its people and culture. The hotel was very comfortable and the perfect location to relax in the morning or evening.

  • This was our second experience with True Greece. In fact, we decided to come to Spain in part because we could once again work with this company. And, of course, they once again provided a stellar experience.

  • Everything went like clockwork, the driver, Roberto was waiting for us upon our arrival in Genoa, Italy and all of our connections went perfectly on time. The three different hotels that we stayed at were all exceptional and provided us with fantastic Mediterranean views as well as great relaxation, wonderful breakfasts, and unequaled ambiance. The day tour with Isabelle was awesome and one of the trip's highlights. We received all we expected and more and this was our third trip with True Greece/True Italy/True France but it won't be the last.
    image Michael Simon, Verona, WI, 2016
  • We absolutely loved our True Greece experience. We have traveled for over 30 years and have done all the planning on our own. We know we can easily arrange everything ourselves, but why? We had such a RELAXED vacation by letting True Greece take care of all the details! And they immediately took care of anything that went wrong along the way....including retrieving a cell phone we left on the plane! We would highly recommend True Greece!

  • The ease and variety of the planning process, the rhythm of the half-day tours (never more than one a day and always one day on our own in each of four cities), and the high quality of the hotels and transfer services made this our most enjoyable and enriching tour ever.

  • Turkey is a country of many faces. Thanks to TrueTurkey, we had a wonderful glimpse into cosmopolitan Istanbul, genial rural Sirince, historical Ephesus, and moon-like Cappadocia. Our guides were warm and knowledgeable and very proud of their Turkish heritage. We stayed in lovely hotels with welcoming staff members who were clearly happy to have us visit their cities/towns. Ten days wasn’t enough to provide us with a deeper understanding of Turkey and its people but we are glad that we had the chance to visit this country that is continually trying to integrate the secular with the sublime.

  • My experience with TrueSpain was excellent and exceeded my expectations. All aspects of the arrangements were top notch...from pre-trip communications to hotels, transfers always on time or early, wonderful tours and excellent guides. You really paid attention to the little things...like making sure we were aware of the change to daylight savings time so we would not have an issue with our tour. Thank you for arranging an enjoyable and worry-free vacation.

  • Having used TrueGreece twice for previous vacations, I knew TrueItalia would plan and provide us the most wonderful experience in Italy--which they did! The hotels were all in the most perfect locations, and were top notch, especially Castello di Velona, near Montalcino. What a treat! All of the drivers were dependable, and made us feel completely safe. And all of the guides were professional, enthusiastic, friendly, and very interesting. We could not have asked for a better trip.
    image Brenda Pokorny, Chagrin Falls, OH, 2015
  • Our Trueitalia experience was perfectly planned from our arrival at the Rome airport to every aspect of our tours and transportation. It was a once in a lifetime trip! Bravo!
    image Karen Hartley, Pittsburgh, PA, 2015
  • I used to think that using a tour company was an extravagance that merely cost me more money. TrueItalia has once again proven me wrong! Anthony and the entire team once again delivered a comprehensive tour package that left every member of our group of 14 speechless! TrueItalia exhibited a knack for selecting the hotels and tour experiences that perfectly matched our interests at a price equal to or below what I could arrange on my own. The only thing missing was the hassle and stress of making the arrangements myself! This is the second time we've traveled under the expert guidance of TrueGreece/TrueItalia. It won't be the last. We're already looking into how TrueSpain can help us with our next vacation adventure!

  • We returned to TrueItalia in 2015 after using True Greece in 2009 on a trip to the Greek Isles. Our 2009 experience was wonderful so when we decided we wanted to return to Italy after 3 previous trips there we chose TrueItalia. We were not disappointed-our connections and all the drivers involved were excellent. The hotels were exceptional as was their personal. Wonderful views just as we had requested, were provided. Our original planning experience was fulfilled to near perfection. We have shared many of our experiences and related photos with friends on many occasions and several of them are impressed. This is the perfect way for my wife and I to travel-we have traveled the world and are now getting older and less able to explore foreign locations on our own as we have often done in the past and TrueGreece provides all the expertise we need to see and do the most interesting places and events. When we arrive at the airport-a professional person is there to meet us and takes us in a very nice vehicle to our destination. all transportation is perfectly scheduled and accomplished. There were no disappointments-all went without a problem.

  • True Greece provided us with the trip of a lifetime! It was the first trip to Greece for our daughters and it was wonderful watching them learn more about their Greek heritage. Everything was flawless from beginning to end and the service provided was impressive. We look forward to planning our next trip with you!

  • TrueItalia's tours are fantastic. The Ultimate Boat Experience in the Amalfi Coast was literally the best activity we've ever done while on vacation. Overall, the company is extremely helpful and always has the best interests of their customers in mind.

  • Thank you for planning another fantastic vacation for our family! Like our vacation to Greece two years ago, this trip to Turkey was one highlight after another and created so many wonderful family memories. The accomodations were all lovely, but what truely sets the True Greece/True Turkey experience apart is the attention to detail and the extremely high quality local teams in each location. Every detail on our trip ran smoothly -- our transfers were on time and welcoming, and the tour guides were all knowledgable, professional and wonderful with our kids. That meant we could truly relax and enjoy our vacation which makes for the best experience of all!

  • This was our second trip with TrueGreece and TrueItalia, and we were once again highly impressed with the level of service, accommodations, and expertise that guided our experience. You just can't help but have a phenomenal trip when working with the TrueGreece team.

  • I had a great experience working with True Greece on my honeymoon and that's why I didn't even want to consider going anywhere else for my first anniversary trip to Italy. Anthony and Nora were highly responsive, made great suggestions and were extremely helpful and friendly during the whole planning process. I have already recommended True Greece to my co-workers and numerous friends and will continue to do so. I know that they will set up a great authentic trip with hotels and vendors that they have already vetted. I look forward to planning trips to France and Spain with them next!

  • The TrueItalia team put together a wonderful itinerary for me and my husband to explore Italy from top to bottom. This is the best way to plan luxury travel quickly. They communicated quickly and often about the options before we finalized the itinerary. They planned all transfers - which was great! And also, were very quick to respond to any requests while we were on the road. When we were unsatisfied with one of our rooms, they immediately called the hotel and changed it. We recommend TrueItalia!

  • My husband, our 18 year old son and our 16 year old daughter and I just returned from a truly superb vacation planned by True Turkey. We stayed at marvelous hotels, ate at wonderful restaurants and toured incredible museums, buildings, mosques, churches, archaeological sights and more. The True Turkey guides amazed us with their knowledge of history and their take on current events. Even with all the protests in Taksim Square, we felt very safe. All four of us only wish our trip could have been longer.

  • This was truly a trip of a lifetime! Everything went incredibly smooth throughout the entire trip. The tour guides were fantastic and very accommodating. Everything was top notch and very luxurious. The transfers were always timely and well done. Our trip also included time on the Silver Seas Cruise ship which was the best cruise ship we have ever been on. Can't wait to do this all again!!

  • Due to True Turkey's excellent planning, our trip was seamless. The guides were top-notch, the properties lovely and comfortable, and our experience was truly authentic. Your staff (Nora, Anthony, and Nikos) was responsive and professional from our initial contact throughout the entire process. Based on our trip experience, their hard work and detailed planning were evident.
