What people say
I had such an epic time in Italy with Geckos. Our leader Maurizio was knowledgeable, fun and easy going which just made the tour run naturally. He gave us great recommendations of what to see and do in our free time and we ate at the most authentic Italian cafes and restaurants. We all left Italy 5kg heavier and with some great memories.
