We did the Central Italy trip at the end of May 2014. In my opinion, yes, ABD was worth the money. First, our guides were AMAZING. Anything we needed or requested, they delivered. The accommodations selected by ABD were top notch. While our views may not always have been spectacular, the hotels were in a prime location and very high end. The lunches, dinners, tours, etc., arranged by ABD were absolutely wonderful. I believe that our tour had the absolute best guides available. Further, our ABD guides provided great direction, etc., during our " on our own" times. While I have not been on a group tour since 1997, I will say that this ABD trip exceeded my expectations. As a result, I do believe that is worth the money (or even more than what we paid). If you are accustomed to Disney service, ABD is the way to tour.

Far exceeded expectations

My then 14 year old daughter and I traveled alone to South Africa over the 2012/2013 Winter Break. It was truly a life changing experience. It is by far worth the cost of the trip. With us two "girls" traveling alone my first priority was to feel safe, and Adventures by Disney didn't disappoint. We felt secure from the time we left Birmingham till the time we arrived home in Birmingham! EVERYTHING is taken care of, we never touched our luggage once we landed in South Africa. We had never done a "tour" before and were a little concerned that we may not have enough time on our own. ABD provided the perfect balance. Everything is organized to perfection and being absolutely first class is just a bonus. There are all age ranges on the trip and all age ranges are accommodated with choices of activities. Coming home was bitter sweet because we felt like our tour group had become our family. We are still in contact with them via FB today. We are planning another trip now, and I am intent on giving one of the adult only tours a whirl in my near future. So above and away it is worth the cost, and your family memories will be priceless.

I feel like if you've never traveled abroad this could be a very all-inclusive and worry free way to travel.
