LA DOLCE VITA TESTIMONIALS
Andrea and Greg Van Keuren
"My husband Greg and I had heard great things from my brother (a college hockey coach), who has taken multiple hockey trips to Italy with Brad and his team. We were looking for a special small group tour of Italy. We wanted delicious food and wine, Four Star Hotels, luxury transportation and knowledge guides. We set the bar high and were not disappointed. This was an absolute trip of a lifetime! Just a bit of our trip…
We experienced savory Italian Cuisine each night, then had an authentic cooking class and made our own pasta, sauce and dessert. Another highlight was staying in Lake Como which is sensational and at a small Italian town (Bassano Del Grappa) and having a private tasting in the oldest grappa distillery in Italy! Each and every destination was a delightful and enchanting experience. ‘Roma’ could be the most beautiful and intriguing city in the world, so much to see!!
Transportation in Europe is much different than in the States and the language barrier can be extremely frustrating. The Euro Elite Tours transportation was exceptional. Each destination was reached either by a private air-conditioned luxury bus, a bullet train or a private water taxi. Mass transit was also utilized, but with the help of our guide Giusi it was seamless! Having reliable transportation made the day to day logistics enjoyable. Our fascinating guide kept us enthralled, learning about each and every city we explored. Another challenge can be finding a hotel in a prime location. Boom! Another win for Euro Elite Tours! Each and every hotel was centrally located to meet our needs, was clean, lovely and had courteous staff. If you are looking for an adventure of a lifetime and an unforgettable experience, look no further. This tour is for you!"

"We could never have planned such a wonderful trip on our own. It was a great snapshot of Italy as we stayed on Lake Como and visited Milan, Italian Riviera, Venice, a beautiful mountain village and finally Rome! Even fir in an afternoon in Lugano, Switzerland which was beautiful! Our guide's local knowledge and connections made the experience worry-free yet totally unique and customized to us."
John and Jean Mehrkens
“The final Dolce Vita tour schedule, upon our arrival, was set so there was a great mix of group time and free time! The tours with the group were well orchestrated and led by the best guide Italy has to offer. We were always given great recommendations for our free time so we never felt like we missed out on a thing! For us, it was a trip of a lifetime and we can’t wait to see how it evolves.”
COLLEGE HOCKY TOURS TESTIMONIALS
Head Coach UMass
“The trip to Italy was nearly flawless”. Greg Carvel said. We did have some bus time but most of it was I the Swiss Alps with unbelievable scenery. It was a well-run tour and it is fun when you have a lot of people who haven’t had the experience before. The Eurosportours staff and people we interacted with were all great and we had a couple of amazing boat rides and dinners that were in unique locations, including one in a medieval prison! The opportunity to spend two days in Rome and see some of the sights that are world famous was awesome. It is not a cliché to say it was a trip of a lifetime.”

"One of the best trips I have ever had and one that probably impacted me more than any other as a kid playing hockey was back in 2000 when an All-Star Team from Minneapolis traveled to Italy and Switzerland. We played in an International Tournament in Lake Como, Italy and beat the Russians in the final to win the tourney! I can still remember going to Milano, Bellagio, and playing more games in Switzerland. I knew then I wanted to play in College, Internationally, and of course my dream was the NHL."
Head Coach Colgate University
"These trips to Italy and Switzerland exceeded our expectations. Beating the Italian National Team on penalty shots was a real highlight, but it was the beautiful landscapes, the amazing cuisine, architecture, and historical venues that really made the trips for us. The entire staff was great and it was an experience that both our teams will never forget. We will certainly do it again!"

Quinnipiac University Hockey Team
"Our trip to Italy and Switzerland was a trip of a lifetime. The Swiss and Italian Hockey Teams we played really challenged both players and staff as we had to adjust to a different style and system. Thanks to Eurosportours as they thought of everything and they were organized, professional, and provided a first class tour!"
