My family of 4 used Weka Travel in May 2017 to organise our 17 day holiday in Italy. Right from my first email contact with Josh I knew that he and his team would be perfect for organising our trip for us. We had not done a lot of travelling and so the thought of where to start and how to go about it all was a bit daunting. I needn’t have worried as Josh and his team did absolutely everything! They organised all our accommodation, transport, pickups, tours and tickets. The whole trip went seamlessly thanks to Weka Travel. Josh was always understanding of our tastes and travel style and was always attentive, kind, patient and professional. His knowledge (and the rest of the team at Weka) meant we were able to plan a trip that suited us perfectly. Weka took all the stress out of our holiday and we are grateful to them. Would I use Weka Travel again? In a heatbeat !!! Can’t wait to plan another trip!

From the moment we landed at the airport in Rome in Sept 2012, Joshua’s company looked after all of the details: transportation, accommodation and guided tours. He provided an outstanding service in all of the categories. His services far exceeded our expectations. Based on our experiences, we have recommended him to friends, and they also experienced the same satisfaction as we did. He was so incredibly knowledgeable of the area and has an aptitude to decipher the clients travel needsThe Moore family, Dorchester, Ont. Canada . 2012

I couldn’t imagine taking students to Italy without Josh and his team Weka Travel. They catered to our every need and treated us like family. The trip was highly organized, expertly planned and in on a word, fantastic! I highly recommend Josh and his outstanding company.

In May 2013 a group of us decided that we wanted to explore Italy, experience the culture, savor the food and taste the wine. With Joshua’s help we were able to plan an adventure we would not soon forget. We worked with Joshua on our itinerary, he understood what we were looking for, and helped us put together a plan that included Florence, Arezzo, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, an amazing cooking class at Badia a Coltibuono and a high speed train ride to Rome. He arranged tour guides for each of our destination points who were very well versed in the history of the areas. With Joshua’s guidance we experienced the authenticity of Italy and its culture. He showed us places we would never have found ourselves. It was an amazing experience and one that we would not have been able to accomplish without his help.Hulsman Family
OUR VENICE EXPERIENCE 30 May 2016
Hi Weka Travel
Today my husband, 10-year old son & I went on your full day Venice tour with Luca . The experience was superb from start to finish. Luca met us on time & quickly navigated us through the people mover to start our walking tour. He quickly worked out that we were interested in art & architecture & took us to one of the Biennale Arte exhibitions in a private palazzo. He was wonderful with our son, ensuring that his interests were accommodated in the tour.
Luca was incredibly knowledgeable & interesting to listen to but did it without making it feel like a “tour guide spiel”.
He found us a lovely restaurant & helped us make the most of the experience by advising us on local food & wine. He rearranged plans to ensure we made the most of our time & escorted us back to the cruise ship in good time. Overall Luka was a superb guide who really made our visit seem special.
Our heartfelt thanks to Weka Travel for a wonderful day in Venice. We will definitely use your company again.
Thanks & regards

Joshua and his team are fantastic! They have provided local guides and logistical support for our Italian travel study program I have taught for the past two years and they are very professional, knowledgeable, pay close attention to detail, and are a lot of fun to work with. I highly recommend them.Dr. Provost, Queens University, Canada 2012-2014, Trinity Western University 2017
Just passing on message from our client Roger said to add “that using Weka was a highlight and we would definitely use them again if we are so lucky to return to Italy.”
Thanks for making it so special for them.

I highly recommend Weka Travel to any educational program director, teacher, tour operator, or visitor to Italy. With absolute certainly, this will enrich you understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the best sites in Italy. Not a stone was left unturned when it came to Weka organising our hotels, meals, activities, sightseeing and transfers. An opportunity not to be missed!Jaason Geerts - Director of Leadership - Blyth Academy International
Time and Luxury are paramount for our travel needs and we require the best of the best. Josh and his team at Weka Travel took that to a whole new level. Their attention to detail is unequalled and they certainly know how to cater to our needs from the moment we arrive in Italy. From having our favourite Italian Brunello wine stocked at our private villa, the helicopter transfer to the yacht marina, catering to all our guests dietary needs, a house chef who can create amazing cuisines at a drop of a hat, to simply meeting us on the tarmac of the airport! These guys really know how to roll out the red carpet. With each time we return to Italy they are already ahead of the game and remember our exact preferences and create a complete new amazing experience for us.If you want a holiday to remember, then Weka Travel fits that bill.Sarah, Study Abroad Program Manager. 2013
I just wanted to write and say a massive thanks for the two great tours we experienced this week with Fee.
Brilliant guide, so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and excited about the history of Rome.
We absolutely loved the two tours and the imagery she created for us.
Absolutely would recommend her as a guide and your company for tours to others.
