Tour : 10D7N Italy Fiesta + 2N DubaiTour Manager : Michael YapDate : 18-29 May 2018It was our first time travelling with a tour agency as we wanted to save time planning the logistics for the trip and we wanted to have a high level sense of the cities in Italy before returning a second time on our own. We enjoyed following the itinerary including the optional tours/activities. Our tour manager, Michael, did an excellent job in taking care of all of us. He constantly reminded us about being careful with our personal belongings and not to fall prey to pickpockets. He's witty, caring, considerate and very helpful in offering to take photos for us. I noticed that he was also very understanding in catering for some tour members needs to take more frequent restroom breaks than what was planned for during the coach ride from town to town. He also proactively provided tips for us before we get off the bus at each location, which I am sure everyone appreciated fully.When we arrived in Dubai after completing the Italy trip, my husband's luggage bag could not be found with the rest of the passengers'. Michael accompanied and helped my husband to get the airline/airport staff to hunt it down, and was able to locate the bag within an hour. Kudos for his amazing efficiency and effectiveness !I would recommend this itinerary to those who are visiting Italy for the first time and wants to cover as many beautiful cities/places in Italy as possible within a short period. The hotels were not impressive, though, and I have given feedback to EU Holidays to revise the hotel selections so that they are closer to town and have cleaner bathrooms (for a couple of the hotels, not all).Besides Italy being a beautiful country, being led by a professional, efficient, fun and understanding tour manager like Michael and being with a friendly tour group members made our vacation absolutely sweet and memorable!
10D7N Italy Fiesta25May-3June 2018Tour Manager: Jia FuProbably my best trip and tour manager with EU!My group consist of 48ppl and my initial thoughts were like there’ll be lots of waiting time and hard to keep up with our tour manager... but to my surprise, everything works out well! The itinerary was well planned and very informative explanation of all the places of interest �Jiafu was very helpful and caring towards all of us! He was really humorous as well, really glad to have him as my tour manager! Everything went smoothly and I would want another trip with EU � Props to Jiafu �

Hi I wanted to give a review of my tour in your facebok but had problems doing so. Below is my feedback on the trip. I joined the EU Italy Fiesta tour with a group of friends in Jun 18. We chose EU because the pricing was reasonable for a 10-day tour to Italy and it came with 2 free nights in Dubai. Such a good deal was unbelievable! And of course such a good deal proved to be attractive to many people because we ended up with 48 pax in our group. Given the large group size, we were blessed to have a very professional tour manager assigned to our group. Jiafu is highly experienced and is very service oriented. He is quick witted and is good at problem solving. Given a big group with different profile of people from different countries Jiafu did an excellent job trying to engage everyone to really come together to enjoy ourselves. He was friendly and approachable and was effectively bilingual.He was very knowledgeable about Europe and gave us many useful tips eg what to eat, what to buy, what brands to consider, how to do tax refund. He bought us local snacks, even wine to go with the song and dance, helped to carry luggages and even had to forgo his lunch to help a family made a police report for the loss of wallet. He was always ready to go the extra mile for his customers - e.g he made personal sacrifice by giving up his room for me when the hotel made a mistake about our room allocation. He had to move to another hotel nearby. He also ensured that our seats for the meals were allocated each time so that we could enjoy our meals in the company of our families and friends. He also changed our coach to one with better air-conditioning to make us more comfortable with the hot summer in Italy. Jiafu is indeed an outstanding tour manager who has made this an amazing trip for all of us ! The trip turned out to be better than expected. The food was good although the Italians could do it better, the hotels were clean and comfortable except for one of them, the itinerary was well planned with ample of free time for selfies, group pictures and shopping. And I love the Cinque Terre and the Sistine chapel! Looking forward to another awesome trip with EU. SB Chen 13 Jun 18.

Hi,I am writing to express my appreciation to EU which has offered us a very memorable tour to Italy+Dubai last month. A group of six of us from Penang enrolled to the tour after recommendation from a family member. Even though we are not from Singapore, the distance hasn’t proved to be any difficulties for the entire process. From enquiry, registration, deposit/final payments until the final tour briefing, everything is being done at ease through email/ online system. The staffs from EU have been very professional and helpful, special thanks to Connie Hay and Michael Yap (our tour manager).The tour itself is joyful and memorable and full of excitements. The itinerary is well planned. Along the journey even there were some delay on the schedule due to some unexpected issue, the tour manager Mr. Yap was able to manage it through with least impact to the tour. The most pleasant surprise of the tour is the excursion to Pompeii on the second day at Rome which Mr. Yap managed to arrange for us! We didn’t expect at all we can have the chance to visit this legendary archaeology site which is definitely worthwhile.Also worth mention is the additional shopping trip to Noventa Di Piave designer outlet at Venice which Mr. Yap managed to arrange for us on the last day of our tour at Italy. This is not mentioned in the original itinerary and is definitely a big bonus to some of our hard core shoppers!The two days at Dubai is another highlight of the tour where we got a convenient chance to visit this amazing desert city. The safari tour is something one should not miss! We enjoyed so much! May it be the wild ride through desert on the luxurious Toyota Land Cruiser, or the dinner served at the desert camp with sunset as background and with the very fantastic cultural shows performance.The accommodation and meals arranged are good enough though there are room to further improve for sure.Last but not least, we will like to deliver our utmost appreciation to our tour manager Mr. Michael Yap for his very professional and caring service rendered to the tour throughout the trip. He is such a funny and yet caring guy who has made the trip such a memorable one. His extensive service even include showing us how to make the best photo poses for the various iconic places in Italy, eg. at the Pisa tower! Thank you very much, Michael!So will I recommend EU to my friends and family? Oh yes! Of course I will.Sincerely, LM & the gang from Penang
This is our second tour package with EU Holidays. First was last year (Apr-2017) when we took the Europe Highlights package and the experience was great! So for this year, we got the Italy Fiesta package, mainly because this is the only package that fits my family’s schedule.We have a very competent Tour Manager. Our Tour Manager, Wang Jiafu, (also known as Michael by the local Tour Guides) is very organized and very professional. He provided us with the day’s itinerary as well as expectations for the succeeding day’s tour plan. He is also very quick to adjust to situations to ensure we enjoy the tour. One example is the coach’s aircon system encountered some problem and immediately he coordinated for replacement. He was also very effective in keeping a group of 48 persons in order and happy throughout the tour.The city tours were great and the local Tour Guides were friendly and knowledgeable about the places we visited.I believe the overall tour experience was great! We enjoyed the scenic and historical places we visited. We also marvelled at the magnificent structures, statues, paintings, well preserved medieval villages and churches.Jiafu made one dinner arrangement a night to remember. There was a photographer taking photos as family enters the restaurant and photo souvenir was distributed to each family/group. The dinner was a full meal course with wine. And lastly, there was a performance by a local singer to end the night.The hotel accommodations were good except for one. I believe this can still be improved.Kudos to Jiafu for a job well done!
First time with EU holiday tour .The tour manager Jun Bin is very good, friendly and easy going person.He will alway remind us beware of safety ,pick pocket and introduce us nice food.In first 2 day, the hotel room provide us single bed which we actually request for kingsize bed.He manage to help us to change in last few day.in 4th and 5th day, the hotel provided air con is spoil.We request for changing hotel and he try his best to help us and solve the hotel problem.1 of the tour member had lost her wallet and Jun Bin had help her and guide her what to do as well.Thank for Jun Bin and wish you all the best.
Just got back from this trip and we had an enjoyable time. It was our first long haul trip to a far away region and the first time we joined a tour (partly because we wanted to avoid the hassle of having to plan our own itinerary but the more important reason was because of concerns about the safety of Italy. The rumours about Italy are not just simply rumours after all.) Despite the fact that the duration was rather short, the entire trip did not feel too rushed and we had sufficient time to take lovely photos and even some free time to tour around the places ourselves. In fact, we covered a considerable number of important landmarks that I feel, everyone should visit at least once in his life.Our tour manager is a helpful, knowledgeable and thoughtful person. We feel that a lot of credit should be given to him for enabling the trip to proceed and end smoothly. When we encountered issues that arose along the way, he was often swift to resolve them and handled them well.Accommodations were generally satisfactory, except for one that was visibly less pleasant. Quite a number of meals were provided for (pretty decent) and when they were not, our tour guide would recommend us that particular place's specialty.We are grateful that our first trip with eu ended on a high note. Thank you!
Being in my mid 20s I always thought that being in a tour will never be as fun as FnE (Free and Easy). But I could never be more wrong.~*About the trip*~I thought it was going to be very very rushed like any typical tour. But nope! We were given sufficient and reasonable amount of free time to both eat and walk about the locations. Best of all. The time to slp was sufficient! I didn't have to wake up at weird timings just to rush to another location. � Most of the hotels chosen were very cozy and nice (except one hotel which was abit underwhelming but still liveable. Just unfortunately that one hotel pales in comparison to the previous hotels. �)The local tour guides and bus drivers chosen were also very informative, friendly and patient with our singapore tour family. �~*About our Tour Manager*~When I first heard our tour group was a pax of 48. I got a shock out of my life! That's slightly more than the size of a classroom! I thought it's going to be havoc. But once again I am proven how very wrong I was. All we needed was a very efficient and steady pom pi pi (very responsible, able to work well under pressure) tour manager and that's what we got. Not only was the trip not havoc but it was more orderly and smooth than any of the other tours that I have been to.Jia Fu was very professional and calm in handling the whole tour family. He handled every single issue and question professionally, reasonable and efficiently. The check-ins to each hotel for a group of 48 was very smooth. On top of the excellent and very admirable tour managing skills, he was also a great friend to all of us, chitchatting with everyone, joking with everyone and most importantly care for the people in the tour family who requires help or need more care when walking between locations. And seriously, I really applaud the amount of knowledge Jia Fu has. You are able to sense the passion in his explanations and experiences. Thank you once again for all the hard work put in to taking care of this big tour family Jia Fu! �~*All in all*~This was the best tour i ever joined and will definitely choose EU holidays again.Job well done ���
It was my first time travelling with EU and this trip definitely did not disappoint. The itinerary was well planned with sufficient amount of time at each stop. It was rather warm in Italy, hence the first bus was indeed too stuffy and definitely lacked any form of comfort. However, Jia Fu was efficient and prompt in changing our bus to one with a more powerful air-conditioning. All the hotels were good, especially for the last two days, except for the one in Sienna as we had to drag all of our baggages and shopping bags at a distance, crossing 2 roads, to reach the hotel. All in all, Jia Fu was a great tour manager and had taken care of all 48 (ranging from 1 to 70/80plus years old) of us really well. I personally enjoyed learning the culture and history of not only Italy, but various parts of Europe shared by Jia Fu. It was indeed an insightful and memorable trip! Thank you :)
