My apologies for not writing earlier - much work awaited when I returned from our amazing adventure. We loved our stay in Italy and everything that you arranged for us was excellent and wonderful. Every airport transfer, pickup, taxi ride, and train ride was on time, expert, as described.
Our tour guide, Monica, in Venice was clearly intelligent, knowledgeable and expert in guiding us and our children through the crowded Venice. She was kind and generous in her descriptions and additions to the tour. She took us to hidden places and she changed the itinerary as needed to address crowds and temperature. She was absolutely excellent.
The highlight of our entire trip - and we visited Spain and Croatia as well - was the gondola ride during the Redentore fireworks. I had searched long and hard to find a company that could make this evening memorable and that is how I found Cultural Italy. You were so kind to work with me to find a plan that met my family's needs and made this a memory that we will all have for the rest of our lives. I am attaching some pictures from the amazing evening (and a few from Milan as well).
THANK YOU, for your excellent assistance. It really was an amazingly well organized and everything was as explained. Your company was there when we had a question (there was a slight mixup about where we were to meet our Venice guide). I am grateful for all of your help and guidance. Please do feel free to use me as a reference if that is useful at all.
