The word is definitely out that Ciao Bambino provides invaluable tips and advice to families traveling to favorite destinations around the world. What you may not know is that we offer an amazing travel planning service to families who want one-on-one help crafting a vacation with their children. Because we are laser-focused on traveling with kids specifically, our advice is relevant and reliable, and our recommendations are incredible, as we have access to a constant stream of feedback on what’s great and what’s not working well … from parents around the world. These are the resources we use to plan trips for our clients.
Vacation time is priceless and many families quite simply don’t have enough of it. There is zero room for disaster trips and itineraries. We helped hundreds of families take wonderful trips in 2015. It was not rare to hear “vacation of a lifetime” used to describe some of the travel experiences we put together for our clients. Here are a few fun client quotes that gave us all a very big smile this season:
A HUGE thank you to you for all your incredible planning for our trip. Everything was perfect — not one hiccup during the whole 4 weeks. That is pretty remarkable for a 4-week trip with up to 10 people traveling together! Your fabulous recommendations for tours, activities, etc. made for the most memorable trip, and we greatly appreciated the arranged transfers, pre-purchased train tickets, etc. All your planning made it so relaxing and enjoyable. An amazing fact about our trip: 4 weeks seeing the major sights of Italy at peak tourist season and we only stood in 1 line! Truly worth every penny to walk right into the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel and the Uffizi without waiting in a monster line!
Your help was invaluable and Barcelona was a fine city to add to our list of places we’ve been. It was a lot of fun with kids, and a week gave us enough time to really get to know it. If we’d had one more day, we would have had to take a day trip, as we’d really done it all. Thank you again. If there is another family trip in my future, I will absolutely call on Ciao Bambino for help with the planning. You made such a difference for us.
Laurel was super and we are certain that her personal experience and love of Italy helped us have one of the best trips we might ever take. We’ve recommended her, and Ciao Bambino, to at least 3-5 families since our trip. The hotels were all super and perfect locations, and well suited to our family of 5. The day excursions she recommended were fantastic. A highlight was a cooking class we took in Tuscany. Overall, she provided us with so much great info for our trip and we are most appreciative.
Our trip this summer was wonderful and Kristi was simply amazing! She helped SO much with recommendations, arrangements — very professional and smart. I have recommended Ciao Bambino to a lot of my friends who travel with kids.
We had a fabulous trip to Italy. My husband declared it one of our best family trips ever.
We truly had an amazing experience with Laurel and on our trip. I felt like your price was very fair and worth every penny. I have recommended Ciao Bambino and Laurel to several families and will continue to do so!
ALL of the hotels you recommended and booked were excellent. Sleep quality was 100% in all of them. We are very grateful to you for that, as that was the most important thing!
We greatly appreciate all your amazing help with our trip! It was such a success in every way! The apartments both in London and Barcelona were fantastic, and we loved all the activities (Venice rowing, mask making and chocolate tour stand out as huge highlights). I’ve been singing Ciao Bambino’s praises all over Europe and here in California, as your experience, guidance and wisdom are so valuable!
Sandy, we got home Saturday night. What an unbelievable time we had. It was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you!

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
