Just received this notice and I was more than delighted to get this news. We were hoping you would come back since there is no other tour company I would rather vacation with. We are happy to hear that Luca is partnering with you since he was our guide on the Amalfi tour. Once we make a decision when we will travel, I will be in touch. Many Blessings to you all!

Claudette and I are so glad to see Amber Tours being renewed. We wish all of you the very best wishes and success.

This is such wonderful news that you are operating again! We have only done one Amber Road tour (Tuscany and Umbria with Luca) but we regard it as our best trip ever and can’t wait to plan for some more. Glad to see Luca taking charge of things.

Just wanted to say how happy we are to hear that you are reopening.  You have always been our favorite company to travel with and we can\’t wait to book again. When you closed we felt like we had lost  many dear friends. Thank you for making me smile again😄

Wonderful news!!!  Dare I hope the world is coming alive once again?  I laughed when I read your question: “Please verify you are a human.”  There were times these pass 16 months when I would have had serious doubts about how to answer that question.  But slowly and surely we’ve emerged from the dark hole and entered into the sunlight.  And the return of Amber Road Tours has certainly done its part in lifting my spirits.  So thank you!  And here’s to the future and wherever travel takes us.

We are so happy to hear that you got your “second wind” and are back in business for 2022. We are also glad to hear that Luca now has a larger role in Amber Road. He was our Tour Manager on our very first Amber Road tour….to Tuscany and Umbria. He was a wonderful guide, and we have no doubt that he will be an equally good manager and partner for the company down the road.

I am thrilled for you all that you are back in business!!

Such good news!!!   We will be booking…

Dear Amber Tours:  Thank you for your latest piece of great news!!  We are all starting to breathe and know that our lives have been affected but not done in!  Looking forward to more good trips with all of you. You made my day!

We are thrilled you are returning! Thank you!

This was one of the best emails for a log time! So very glad AMBER tours is back – I hope to join you again as soon as we in the UK are allowed to travel once more

This is wonderful news. Been singing your praises to all  my friends and will  let them know.

Good morning Jonathan, Sonya, and the team, This is truly a red-letter day!  We had always hoped that Amber Road Tours would return. We know Luca from our first trip with you and think he is a wonderful choice to take the lead. Please congratulate him on our behalf. We are patiently waiting for our second dose of vaccine and we are now slowly emerging from a serious lockdown as our numbers are declining. Your news is a breath of fresh air to us and as your Australian customer said so well, we were hoping that Amber Roads would ride again. The decision to have a smaller group greatly appeals to us. Wishing you all the very best,

Yaaaay! Best news I have had for a long time. Thankyou for your optimism and determination. I look forward to more of your tours when they get going again.

It is wonderful news that Amber Road may soon resume its uniquely rewarding and brilliantly organized tours!  Locked in during covid, I often cheered myself up with memories of fascinating travels with Amber\’s superb guides, but I felt saddened as I feared that the disruptions of the pandemic might mean that Amber Road would shut down permanently.  I am sure that many others who share my fond memories of the European adventures that I enjoyed under your auspices will be cheering at the reassurance that you will soon be reopening for business.  All best wishes for your post-covid success!

I woke up this morning to your email that Amber Road Tours will be back in 2022!  I am so excited for us as clients and tour participants, and am personally thrilled for you as business owners.  You have built a phenomenal brand which has taken years of dedication, time, conversation, listening and respecting your vision and your clients expectations for our experiences when travelling. This is evidenced in the amazing feedback you receive after every tour! I appreciate all that you do and am so excited to have a light to work towards in planning my next trip to Europe. Hopefully I will see you in Italy in 2023.

This was our second tour with Amber Road, and it absolutely lived up to our expectations. The hotels we stayed in were top notch. The towns and sites we visited were charming and fascinating. It was particularly interesting to learn of the significant influence of the Etruscan civilization in the history of the development of the region. The included dinners and lunches were excellent experiences of the unique diversity and flavors of Tuscan cuisine.

This was our 4th tour with Amber Roads, and it was as delightful as the others. From our arrival in Sarajevo, with background commentary on recent tragic events and the role it has played in European history, to the travels through Croatia, we were happy with the accommodations, travel arrangements and our knowledgeable guide Andrej. The personalized attention and tour details remain as reasons we continue to travel with Amber Roads. The small group experience adds to the travel enjoyment. This trip left us quite satisfied and will leave us with many travel memories.

The tour of Sicily was well planned and took in many sites that are recommended to see when visiting Sicily. The two night minimum stays were excellent, didn’t feel too rushed. Our guide Saverio was excellent, giving informative commentary on his island of Sicily, bringing each destination alive with his knowledge. His sense of humour added to the enjoyment of the tour. The local guides were also wonderful, and we definitely got the impression each was passionate about where they lived and the history of each place. Each location was one that I was keen to see, and the hotels were all good too, some were exceptional. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

My husband and I are not tour travelers. We picked Amber Roads because they stayed in towns for at least 2 nights, promised small groups, and had no ‘forced’ shopping. All true. We found our group of 10 had similar minds. We enjoyed each others company and learning about our shared interests. The time in each city was very well planned. We arrived late afternoon after a jam-packed day to a great hotel. Bags were either in our rooms or arrived shortly. The first evening was generally free allowing time for us to unpack and explore on our own. Each morning in a new city began with a tour by a well-informed local guide. There was always free time in each city for personal exploration or shopping. I was amazed how seamlessly everything was handled. I needed a trip to the doctor and Sean, our guide went with me to translate the doctor’s evaluation and to make sure that every restaurant prepared the foods that I was suppose to have. Could not have been better. I very much appreciate his attention to detail and my good care. Speaking of Sean, he is a font of knowledge. Any question we had about the history or culture of Spain provided him with an opportunity to impart his vast knowledge. If anything, he killed us with knowledge. As we look at photos and think about all the special things we did–the bull farm, the horse show, the olive making farm, paella cooking lesson, etc., etc., it is a wonder that we did so much. We will have oh so many memories for years to come. If we ever travel to places that we have not seen, there is no question that we would travel with Amber Road again.

This tour maintained Amber Road’s usual high standard. We had a good group (only 10), and our tour guide, Andrej, was knowledgeable and efficient. We enjoyed all our local guides, and our driver was also helpful and pleasant.  Overall, we felt the tour pace and itinerary were excellent, with a good balance of coach time; tour time & free time. The highlights for us included learning about Sarajevo (we wouldn’t have visited this area had it not been on the itinerary for this particular tour); and the beautiful Croatian coast.  The hotels were well-chosen and well-located, and we particularly enjoyed the smaller, more characterful ones. The meals were good, although nothing can compare with the food in Italy! Always very happy with the service we receive from Amber Road.

I was so happy to finally visit Sicily after many trips to Italy and living on the Adriatic coast of Italy. Mariaelena was so integral to my enjoyment of the tour. She is a wonderful tour director and person. Her genuine care for our personal well-being was obvious throughout the tour. She imparted information about Sicily that was very helpful in understanding this storied land, part of Italy yet very much its own character. Towns that previously were only names are now real. The in city tour guides were excellent. My favorite food was probably pizza and I tried many of them. The earthy regional Sicilian wines were just perfect with them. Lovely to meet new people and especially lovely to have Mariaelena as our constant presence — Bellissimo! Thank you Lisa for being so helpful with our pre-tour arrangements — Amber Road does a great job all around.

This was truly a delightful tour with a congenial group of people, and I look forward to taking other Amber Road tours in the future. The tour design was very thoughtful, with a good mix of guided walks in the beautiful Tuscan and Umbrian towns we visited and free time to explore on your own. The local tour guides were all very good. We had wonderful food everywhere (wild boar ragu, pici!) and an education on the wines of the region from our tour leader, Tiziana. Tiziana knew all the towns we visited so well, and had lots of energy and enthusiasm and a great sense of humor, as well as sensitivity to how we were all feeling. Our driver, Giuseppe, was jovial, patient and friendly, and one of my best memories is driving through gorgeous Tuscan landscapes with Pavarotti and other Italian singers turned up on the van stereo. This was an amazing experience I’ll never forget.

A marvelous trip—well paced and organized, with informative local guides, comfortable accommodations, and beautiful scenery, all led flawlessly by our superb guide, Saverio. Always upbeat, Saverio generously shared his island of Sicily with us, teaching while entertaining with his ever present and delightful sense of humor. Never hovering but always attentive and attuned, responding to the needs of our group, he tirelessly and cheerfully went out of his way to accommodate the largest and smallest of requests. Saverio handled difficult situations creatively, skillfully, and with great empathy and kindness. We can’t thank him enough for making this such a great experience.

The tour exceeded our expectations. Saverio, our guide was a major factor: fully in control, informative, entertaining and caring. The accommodation was very good and the tour well paced. We had been told about Sicily as a great historical destination and it lived up to its reputation. October weather was very good with only a couple of rainy days. Sicilian food is very good too. We enjoyed the composition of our group as well – very thoughtful, interesting and engaging.
