Client
Testimonials

Clients come to us from different sources but over the years many have found us by way of personal recommendation from our existing clients. This is a vote of confidence which we much appreciate and you can share their regard for what we do in two ways.

AITO Toperator15 SILVER

First, the Association of Indendent Tour Operators (AITO) operates a review system where clients can submit independent reviews both on their tour experiances and of CICERONI Travel as a tour operator.  Each year AITO awards the tour operators with the best reviews and based on reviews submitted in 2015 CICERONI Travel was awarded AITOs Tour Operator of the Year Silver Award.  You can see these and more recent reviews by clicking the AITO Reviews icon at the top left of this page.

 

Second, we also receive direct feedback from clients after individual tours and a selection of these testimonials are included immediately below. 

 

“We had a very thorough tour of gardens, castles and houses and all the while being told the complicated history of Ireland in easily remembered bite size pieces. We were entertained for lunch by the owners of some of the places we visited too.  It was all fascinating and fun.”

SE Ireland, Mrs HS, Hampshire

“A very well organised tour of Latvia, brilliant guides, good food, good hotel… CICERONI is unique, a jewel in the crown of British tour operators.”

Ancient Rome, Mrs CD, London

“Every holiday with CICERONI is an amazing experience. Every detail is immaculately organised. Tom and James always include private visits to palaces etc not normally open to the public… never been disappointed.”
