Praise for the Euro Travel Coach Small Group Trips
"So, have you been to Europe? Planning a trip but don't know where to start? Can you imagine what it would be like to live, eat and drink like an Italian? Well, this is how you get it done. Betsy, Greg and Chelsea can either plan your trip or, as they did in our case, put a small group together for an amazing week's foray into Tuscany. We stayed with an amazing group of people in a farmhouse chalet--events, sightseeing, wine tasting and meals were prepared for us daily and, most importantly, there was no thinking necessary. We were simply subjected to exemplary service and a great time.
We travel a lot. We absolutely abhor bus tours and tourist stuff. This is the antithesis. Every single meal is handcrafted. Every single moment has been thought through to give you the greatest access to the beauty and culture of Tuscany. From the eggs in the morning to an Italian feast in the evening, from personally guided Tours in small venues that dig deep in Italian lore, to sitting around sipping the finest local Italian wine and prosseco while admiring the beauty of the Tuscan countryside. The trip that we took was perfectly curated by Euro Travel Coach with a little bit of everything. They even found me the best gluten free pasta on the planet--of course it must be Italian.
That's the Trip part. The other piece that needs to be said is that these folks are first class people. They cared for us like family, always had a smile on their face and busted their tails to make the trip whatever we wanted it to be.
This is 10 stars on a 5 Star scale. Be easy, open minded and ready for a good time. You shall find it here."

"Thank you Greg, Betsy and Chelsea for an unforgettable trip to Tuscany. The itinerary was packed with the 'must sees' of each hill top town and vineyard scattered valley. We loved the hikes, swims, cooking lessons and scenic van trips. Our meals were always a event to enjoy, from the antipasti to the local abundances to the wonderful wines. Perks of your trips: incredibly organized tours, effective transportation right to the attractions, knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides, dinners (either by you or by your favorite restaurant) were fantastic, and last but not least , the coaches , Betsy, Greg and Chelsea are so personable, interesting and efficient. Grazi Mille"

"Our Euro Travel Coach trip to Tuscany was an unbelievable experience. The small group experience is the way to go! Because of the small group (8 people for us), we were able to get to know all the other travelers and share experiences with them. In addition, the group size allowed for the hosts to adapt the trip when necessary (e.g. poor weather) to enjoy the Italian countryside and charming museums and cathedrals with no discomfort. They went over the top making sure food was appropriate for certain diets and also for the travelers that did not want to hike, there was always an alternative. The personal touches were amazing for a group tour (We arrived on Mother's Day, and there was a card and gift in our room!). We can't wait for our next trip with Greg, Betsy and Chelsea."

"Euro Travel Coach is amazing! I had the time of my life in Italy through their amazing hospitality. Greg, Betsy, and Chelsea treats everyone just like family and it makes you feel just at home! Everyone who tells me that they want to go on a vacation I point them in the direction of Euro Travel Coach. Euro Travel Coach really organized our trip in Tuscany very well. This was the best trip I have ever taken and it won't be my last time to travel with Betsy and Greg."

"I loved everything about our small group trip to Tuscany. I don't think there was anything you could have done better. I enjoyed it all! It was fast-paced, but I love how much we got to experience. The food was great and I enjoyed all the locally sourced charcuterie, cheeses, and produce we had during our aperitivo hours. Keep it up!"

"Eurotravel Coach is the best! They had planned a marvelous itinerary from a central beautiful agriturismo villa (owned by kind and sweet people with a most-excellent dog). We were introduced to the beautiful historic hill cities of the Tuscany area of Italy. It included hiking, guides for some of the most important cathedrals, discretionary time in the cities (so we could walk all over the city, or hang out sipping Aperol spritzes with the locals, or anything in between). Our hosts were flexible, and when we had a rainy day, we conferred and switched to another plan. The winery tours--and Oh! the WINE) were excellent. I was so happy to find one winery's wine in TX--something our hosts had intended! They were extremely careful with the food for my gluten-intolerant husband, and his food options were tasty--I have even tried a couple of recipes since we returned home. Our traveling companions were a blast! From the first welcoming glass of prosecco, the smiling faces and delicious food, to the last hugs and suggestions for more fun, it was A+! Kudos, y'all! We are looking forward to Piedmont!"

"Euro Travel Coach is awesome! On night one we were taught how to cook pici pasta and I have cooked it at least 3 times in the last month since we have gotten back! I loved that they were able do that because now I know how to cook pasta from scratch from a true Italian. If you ever need help planning your trip in Europe, these are the people to go to! They make you feel safe and a part of their family in group tours and they also make traveling easy and simple. Thank you guys for an amazing time and I hope to travel with you soon again!"

"Tuscany was a real treat for me. I loved the accommodations at the villa and I felt pampered by the three of you. I liked the whole program you arranged, there was nothing I disliked (except hiking, haha). I don’t see that you can improve anything. I have no suggestions for future trips, but I would go with you again any time! Thanks for a lovely time in Tuscany!"
