Magical Journey

August 2023

Hi Emanuela,

Finally made it home!  Still waiting for the suitcase though.

Want to thank you for planning a wonderful trip for me!  I thoroughly enjoyed everything you arranged for me.  The planned pickups were definitely the way to go -all went off without a hitch.

The Bucintoro was a class hotel – beautiful room and service.  The Orto de Medici was also very nice and the staff was most helpful.  Its location was great.  No problem walking to either meet Elena, the guide, or the cooking school.

Emanuele, Venice guide, was very nice and most knowledgeable.  Elena, Florence’s guide, was a super nice person and again very knowledgeable.   My two tours with her were most enjoyable and very enlightening on Florence’s history.

The class at the cooking school was interesting and fun.  Nice group of people (there were at least 16 people attending).

Thoroughly enjoyed the full-day tour of The Best of Tuscany.  The guide was excellent.  Enjoyed the towns we visited.  The stop at the winery provided great information about the wines.  The lunch was excellent.

Again, you did an excellent job in planning the trip for me.  Your itinerary was well-detailed and I liked that I had it on my phone – eliminated carrying a lot of paperwork.

Thank you for all you did.  You can use me as a reference anytime.

I wish you and your family good health and much happiness.
