THANK YOU so much for helping me plan our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Rome, Pompeii and Positano. The agenda you built was perfect – it gave us the mix of history, culture and sights we desired – and everything went off without a hitch.

Luca, our guide in Rome, was incredibly knowledgeable and did a great job mixing information that was of interest to my daughters in addition to Shari and me.  His breadth of knowledge of history, art, architecture and religion was amazing.   He really helped us get a sense of the history evolution of the city.  We also got great knowledge and insight (and additional dinner recommendations!) through Thomas, our guide at the Coliseum.  The Underground Tour recommendation was a hit, esp with our girls!

Our time in Pompeii and Positano was also wonderful.  Mauritzio picked us up at the hotel and got us everywhere we wanted to be comfortably and with great background on our locations.  His recommendation for a fresh, homemade lunch looking down on Positano was perfect and set the tone for a great afternoon.  Sylvia, our guide at Pompeii, delivered a great tour packed with stories and interesting facts, and steered us around groups that began to arrive during our visit.

Your recommendations and planning were a great value for us and much appreciated.   We had a great time.  I also wanted to pass on personal thanks for the English-to-Italian translation you gave us to help along the way.
