We chose GreenLoop to visit Italy, 4 day flexible trip, which was perfectly matching with planned itineary. After joining the tour, it didn't take much time for us to realize that its a wonderful decision. The bus was very comfortible, guide was so friendly and explaining things very nicely. All our passengers from different parts of the world, mixed cultures and were so friendly, we can never forget the send off they gave us when we finished our part of the trip. Hotel accommodations are very nice with the complimentary breakfast they provided. We loved our vacation and all Italy attractions for which we have to give big credit to this package tours. We dont hesitate to say we will recommend this to our friends.

My two friends and I just took the Green Loop tour last September 18, 2015. It's all worthy because we were able to tour around all the main attractions from the mentioned itinerary. Day 0 - it's not part of the tour but we took pre-hotel arrangement in Paris in the Kyriad Hotel, Saint Maurice. It's about 30 minutes away from the city. The hotel was very posh, nice and beautiful. We toured around Paris on our own. Day 1 - we met our tour guide Chong Ho from the lobby of the hotel together with some of the tourists, then off we went to the meeting point in Place D'Italie to pick up the rest of the tourists. The bus was very comfortable, and Chong was very entertaining. From Place D'Italie, we traveled long hours to reach Lucerne, Switzerland. We had 2 hours in Lucerne, which is enough for the landmark (Lake Chapel) and to do some shopping and taste the famous ice cream. In the evening, we went to Holiday Inn Express in Lucerne. Restaurants and McDonald's are near the hotel. Day 2 - we left around 8:00AM, had a stopover in Uri, Switzerland to take some pictures on the lake, and every two hours, we stopped in gas stations to buy food and use the rest rooms. We reached Milan, Italy on time to spend hours taking pictures on the piazza (cathedral, monument and the mall). We had our lunch here. Good thing Chong informed us about the CORPHETTO (you'll pay service charge on restaurant if you will seat when you dine in). From here we proceed to Verona. We paid an additional 1 Euro for the local bus to go inside Verona to see Romeo and Juliet's house plus some time in the piazza to have some gelato. We spent our evening in Venice at Michaelangelo Hotel (not good hotel and breakfast is worst). Day 3 - we left to the port of venice and transfer to a big boat going to the island of san marco. we roam around, ride the gondola, had the very yummy black spaghetti and go to the Glass/Crystal Factory. we almost spent whole day here. then spent our evening in Barcelo's Aran park Hotel in Rome (lovely and relacing hotel) Day 4 - Our first destination is the Vatican. We were late from our scheduled tour, so spent half of the day inside the Vatican museum, Saint Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel. We weren't able to have our lunch, instead just took a snack on our way inside Rome to see the fountain and Pantheon. We then traveled to Florence again onto Michaelangelo Hotel but at least a bit better from the previous one. Day 5 - Some of our co-tourists had some suggestions on the Florence tour, so the group split into two. When we reached Florence, we all first attended the workshop on the leather factory. Once split, the other group customized the tour to go in the factory outlet of leather companies like Gucci and Prada while the other half explored the city. Good thing Chong gave us a map because I chose the city exploration. Then we all met up again after a few hours, proceeded to Pisa, then were on our way to Genoa to spend the evening at AC Hotel Marriott. The night was so young, we all went out and explored Genoa. We all met at Piazza de Ferrari and roamed around to see structures and had our dinner at the marina. Day 6 - we left the hotel and proceed to Monaco to see Prince Albert's castle and some churches where the previous royals are buried. Then we proceeded to Nice where the beach is so lovely and the place is so nice. Our last destination in Cannes to step on the red carpet and see the walk of fame. We then spent the night in Salon de Provence. The hotel was nice, it's like you're in a hacienda. Day 7 - it was all travel going back to Paris, with just some stretching on stopovers. We arrived around 6:00P, so we had a lot of time to roam around Paris. All in all TakeTours is all worthy of the money you'll pay. Hoping to take the red line or blue line in the near future.
