This was an incredible first time experience visiting Italy with our private group of only 4!
Gino and his staff are so organized, warm, funny and very smooth in traveling all over Italy. What ever we wanted, they catered to all our needs. MALLAMACI Tours by far is the best company to travel to Italy with. It was just perfect. Grazie MT !!

June 2016 Mallamaci Tour

This is not your ordinary tour to Italy. My family felt we went with a close cousin and not an impersonal tour guide. Gino wanted you to experience Italy with the same excitement that he has each time he visits. He has a deep passion for this country and desires to share that passion with you. All the details were cared for. All I needed to do was make sure I set my alarm to get up! The high quality of this tour made it very special; the quality of the hotels, restaurants and transportation were all excellent. Any trip to a foreign country with many stops and sites to visit always has unforeseen challenges - Gino made sure that those challenges were resolved quickly and minimized any negative impact the group. We visited so many places throughout Italy, trying to hit every major point of interest, which included 14 UNESCO sites. The value of this tour surpasses any other company we looked at. To get an all inclusive trip to Italy is unheard of in today's world. What makes this tour so nice is that there are only 10-12 persons with the group which allows us to get into smaller quaint restaurants, and move quicker through the many excursions. It's the personal touch that makes the difference!

Going to Italy on a 14-day tour with my family of four and Gino Mallamaci was an experience I will never forget! From the first day I met Gino, I noticed his passion for Italy and the Italian culture. We booked with him due to that passion, and he didn't let us down! From the first day to the last, his passion for Italy oozes over everything he does. We visited the most beautiful sites, ate at magnificent restaurants, and drank the best wine I have ever tasted. The views from the vineyards are images I will never forget, and the tomatoes were the best I have ever tasted. Gino made sure everything was perfect. We became family, and enjoyed each other's company. It was truly the best fourteen-day vacation or experience I have ever had. I cried on my last day because I felt so close to our group. I would highly recommend going to Italy with Mallamaci Tours. Grazie, Gino, Nino, and Gino's son Christopher!

This trip was an amazing experience for our family. Gino displayed his absolute love for Italy and gave us a trip that none of us will forget. He worked tirelessly on satisfying his group and ensuring their comfort. If traveling to Italy, Mallamaci Tours is the BEST option and in my mind, the ONLY option. THANKS GINO!!

Gino provides a one-of-a-kind tour of Italy! His passion for the Italian culture is demonstrated in every thing he offers. This was the first trip I truly did not have to pay for anything other than souvenirs. Gino was always there to make sure our needs and wants were addressed. As someone who has done tours before, I have never had so many things included in the cost of the trip
Thank you for this truly one-of-a-kind experience!! Ciao!

The trip Mallamaci Tours provides is amazing! In 10 days we were able to see things and experience places that some don't when there for 3 weeks. The tour group is small and you feel like family. Truly the trip of a lifetime because of Mallamaci Tours!

Matthew Tortora

July 2015 Mallamaci Tour

I'm NEVER going back to Italy... unless it's on another Mallamaci Tour!! By far, if not, one of the best experiences of my life. No one can show you Italy like Gino Mallamaci. Even if you aren't Italian, he will make you feel right at home. I can not thank Gino enough for the opportunity and experience he gave me this summer. Grazie mille!!

Ryan Lowe

July 2015 Mallamaci Tour

The memories that were made on my Mallamaci Tour were memories that I will never forget for as long as I live. No one knows how to make a person happy like Gino Mallamaci does! This trip was my first time ever flying on an airplane and Gino sat next to me and made sure that I was okay for all 9 hours of the flight—he was my own personal flight attendant! I will never be able to thank Gino enough for the experience that he blessed me with. He took me all around Italy and showed me one beautiful city after the other. The fun truly never stopped. His knowledge of Italy was outstanding and I felt certain that Gino was only taking us to the best hotels, to the best restaurants (with the best food and best wine), and to the best sites. I have never placed so much faith and trust in a man as I did to him. But one of my favorite things about the entire trip was the bond that was formed with Gino and my group. For 24 hours of every single day, Gino was doing everything he could to make his group happy and I could not be more grateful for that. I loved seeing the passion that Gino had for not only Italy but for making people smile—he brought me to tears every night at dinner simply because of his breathtaking tales of his own life experiences. For all 12 nights and 13 days of my Mallamaci Tour, I was in a state of Zen. Nothing could have brought me down, and I mean it when I say that I enjoyed every single second of it. I went to Italy with friends and came back with family. I no longer refer to him as Gino Mallamaci; I refer to him as my own Uncle Gino.

This was my second trip to Italy with Mallamaci Tours.  We visited Naples, Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi Coast and Calabria.  Gino puts his heart and soul into each and every trip.  He is very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and has unbelievable contacts with all tour guides in each city.  The trip is very well planned and he makes sure each person's  needs are met in every way.  The hotels and restaurants are excellent.   Gino, once again you have made a memorable trip for me.  Bravo, Mallamaci Tours.

June 2015 Mallamaci Tour

Our family just returned from a trip to Italy with Mallamaci Tours. It was amazing - everything was perfect!  We visited Venice, Florence, Naples and Rome and saw more than we ever expected (without waiting in lines!) - the hotels were outstanding, the meals were incredible, the tour guides were great and the entire itinerary was just right.  We would not change a thing.  Our children cannot stop talking about the trip and traveling with Gino.  Gino and the Mallamaci Tours team - Ezio and Nino - took care of our every need and made us feel like locals.  We travel several times a year, and this trip was a bargain!!  Grazie molto Gino and Mallamaci Tours for taking our family to Italy and helping us make some great memories - we already are thinking about our next trip with Mallamaci Tours!

September 2014 Mallamaci Tour

Mallamaci Tours was recommended by our friends who went with Gino 2 years ago. Boy, were they right !! This was like a vacation of dreams. Every day was worry free, organized & just spectacular. When Gino says everything is included, he means it ! For a few days, the 4 of us were being taking care of by 4 Mallamaci Tours staff !! We felt like royalty ! The 30th anniversary party he gave us was the perfect touch to end such a memorable vacation. This trip was worth every penny & then some.

Frank & Sara Ascone

September 2014 Mallamaci Tour

Gino, Gino, Gino, UNBELIEVABLE !!!! It's impossible to tell you how great our Italy trip really was. Eating at terrific restaurants everyday. How much wine can you drink ?? Gino bought us; gelato, espresso, pastries whenever, wherever we went. All of the hotels where beautiful. All tour guides could speak; English, French, Spanish, Germany and of course Italian. Gino is an all round good person. His goal was to make us happy. It went way past happy. Thanks Gino, Giovanni, Mico, and Ezio for a most memorable trip.

Howie and Laurie

September 2013 Mallamaci Tour

We can not believe that Gino, Mico, and Ezio escorted just the two of us all over Italy for two weeks!  They made us feel like royalty.  Every meal, every site, every hotel was just jaw dropping!  We are so fortunate to see Italy with Mallamaci Tours.  What an incredible experience! Thank you a million euros over!

August 2012 Mallamaci Tour

We've traveled to many places and this trip by far out did them all!  Gino and his staff couldn't do enough for my family and me.  They were so attentive and caring, we just could not believe it.  At first, we thought his trip was pricey, but by the end of the trip, I felt we owed him more money.  We wanted for nothing.  He continued to satisfy us well beyond our expectations.  By the way, he gives the best foot massages on the bus.

Catherine

August 2012 Mallamaci Tour

It was my first trip to Italy, which I shared with my two sons and grandchildren.  I wish I went to Italy sooner.  Gino is the most caring, emotional, and funny person I have ever met.  He took such good care of me and was concerned about me every day.  He truly gave me an experience of my lifetime, especially since I spent it with my family!  Those DVD's Gino made us are amazing!

Frank & Annie

August 2012 Mallamaci Tour

All around amazing trip!  The food at the AutoGrill was better than most Italian restaurants in America!  Gino even took me to the Naples airport at 5:30 in the morning because of an early trip back home!  When Gino says no budget, he sure means it!  My sister Annie ate lobster every night!

Frank & Rosa

August 2012 Mallamaci Tour

We can not believe how much of Italy we saw on this trip!  So many famous places!  The hotels were superb, the restaurants were delicious, the tour guides were knowledgeable... Gino was on-top of his game every second of every day!  We even had the chance to invite our Italian-resident cousins to join us on most of the trip!  Gino treated them as if they were paying customers.  People might say that Gino has a few screws loose, but they are damn good screws!  The 1998 Barolo Wine in Calabria was the icing on the cake!

Jaclene

August 2012 Mallamaci Tour

What a super job you and your staff did for watching out for our entire family and treating us all as if we were your own family.  You covered every detail and we were so impressed with all you did for us to make our trip a lifetime family memory!  My cousine Jenn surprising me in Rome was just mind blowing !  How does Mallamaci Tours do it??

We want to thank Gino of Mallamaci Tours for one of the greatest trips of our lives! We had an amazing trip Gino's planning allowed us to not have to think for the whole vacation.

May 2012 Mallamaci Tour

Touring Italy with Gino, Giovanni, Dan and his wonderful tour guides was the ultimate vacation. Gino is "one in a million" and pays attention to every little detail and person in the group. The food, wine, gelato, private boat rides and tour guides got better and better as the days went on. Our group had the greatest time and laughed everyday, we felt as if we were lifetime friends. It was truly the experience of a lifetime... THANK YOU, Mallamaci Tours for making it all possible!

We would like to thank Gino and his team of expert tour guides for the most fabulous time in Italy. Giovanni our bus driver was the best. Everything was first class. Gino made the trip exciting and interesting, going to some of the best restaurants and staying in the best hotels. When Gino says it is all inclusive he means it. Anyone thinking of going to Italy, Mallamaci Tours is the only way to go.

We had the most amazing time.  The hotels, food & sites were all perfect.  Everything was so organized.  It’s nice to be pampered and not worry about anything in a foreign country. Gino and his staff took care of it all, and even arranged for a custom cake for our 25th anniversary in Calabria.  If you want to visit ALL of Italy,  Mallamaci Tours is the way to go. 

Carolyn & Lauren

I’m glad I took my first trip to Italy with Mallamaci Tours.  I worried about nothing, from the time Gino helped me buy the tickets until we landed back home, he was there taking good care of me.  Gino was at the top of his game 24/7.  Everything was amazing, delicious, fun & so exciting.

This trip was truly amazing and it will be a memory of a lifetime. I have Mallamaci Tours to thank for that. I saw only the most beautiful things and the energy and love from Gino made the days even better than I imagined possible. I could not wait to wake up every morning and see all the sights and have the tour group be there with me. Gino made everyone feel like a family and there is no better way to tour Italy than with the surprises, joy, and enthusiasm from Mallamaci Tours. I hope to go back one day and see other parts of Italy just the way I did for my first time.
