Dear Antonella,

From the first time we spoke on the phone until we arrived home from Italy, you have been our Angel. Your plans for our family vacation were meticulously planned and executed and we cannot thank you enough.  When Alan and I first started planning our vacation, we had trepidation about making plans with our four adult daughters and how we could take a 12 day road trip without encountering too many “opinions” and plans.  You saved our lives and our vacation!

All five of us expressed our ideas as far as where we might like to go, what kind of hotels we wanted to stay in, the location of the hotels, and of course the budget.  You accommodated all of our desires and more!  The four girls were extremely pleased with all you choices and when they were happy we were happy!

We had a special request for a farmhouse where we might learn to cook an Italian dinner. You selected a wonderful location in Umbria where we were warmly received by Patrice and her amazing family.  We cooked an outstanding dinner with the help of Patrice’s son translating Patrice’s instructions.  After two hours, our dinner of gnocchi, beef, special vegetables, and a pear in a light crust was ready to serve to the rest of the guests in the farmhouse.  We were a hit!!

We could not have been happier with the tour guides you provided us for the Vatican, the Uffizi, Assisi and the Colosseum.  They were very knowledgeable, patient with our questions, and seemed to have as good a time with us as well as us with them!

You arranged all transfers and again…responsible and reliable. We have given several of our friends your information and we know that as we write this letter one couple is in Italy enjoying your well planned trip!!!

I’m ready to go back!
