Joanne & Adam, Australia – Vacation: Italian Classics & Amalfi Coast

Hello Faye,

Wow what can I say, we had the best holiday in Italy, the experience was amazing, the service was outstanding, the hotels were beautiful, the transfers were luxury plus and every driver was informative, helpful and courteous. The Hotel staff in every place we stayed were warm and welcoming and made us feel very special. We could not fault any part of our journey! Everything went off without a hitch and the timing between transfers to airports and train stations was extremely well planned.

Rome was our first stop and arriving at the Marriott Grand Hotel Flora we stepped into our beautiful room with a balcony over the city and champagne waiting for us! We spent 3 days immersed in the glorious history of the ancient city with the help of our lovely guide.

Then to Siena, the medieval city in Tuscany where spectacular views greeted us from our room at Hotel Athena. We fell in love with this city and walked the cobbled stoned streets, dined in the Piazza, shared wine and Typical Tuscan cuisine and felt a real connection with the past. Next stop Venice and our transfer was very enjoyable with both the private car, first class train and then the water taxi to our hotel all perfectly timed.

Venice was something else! Our Hotel the Palazzo Sant Angelo on the grande canal was lovely very quaint and typically Venetian, the breakfasts were delicious and staff were very helpful. we loved exploring Venice with our guide and discovered the mysteries of the Venetians and were in awe at the wealth, art and lifestyles of the past.

A 6 am start and a 45 minute water taxi to the Venice airport in the pouring rain did not dampen our spirits for our flight to Naples, thanks to our guide who accompanied us through the airport to our departure gate. On arrival we were wished away by private transfer in a very flash black Limo to the Ancient city of Pompeii and a private tour by Mario who was an expert in everything Pompeii. We were captured and swept away to another time and another place, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Then, stepping into our waiting limo in front of the madding crowds and driven to our Hotel in Sorrento was the icing on the cake.

We absolutely loved Sorrento, its spirit, its lively characters, its friendly locals, its lemons and limoncello, its music, the local seafood spaghetti, the flowers and the view!!! The Hotel Tramontano is stunning and the view is breathtaking to say the least. The restaurant has the most spectacular position and lovely food. The gardens are joyful and calming, we truly immersed ourselves in the village atmosphere.

After 4 wonderful days in Sorrento we were met by our driver and whisked the short hour drive to picturesque Positano and the story book Palazzo Murat Hotel in the middle of this enchanting town. It was like walking into a secret garden and disappearing into another world. Positano was our resting place we spent five days exploring the quaint little town, we hired a boat for the day and explored the rugged coast line visiting the smaller towns along the Amalfi Coast, we walked the ancient paths and wondered at the mountainous terrain and the old homes seemingly hanging on to the cliff faces. We were sad to leave but excited to see our final city Florence.

Travelling via the first class speedy train was very comfortable and spacious and we arrived in Florence approximately 2.5 hours after departing Naples. The driver met us and delivered us to our last hotel, the Villa Medici and our private room with large balcony and 180 degree view of the ancient town. Our trip was not complete without attending the Motorcycle GP in Mugello on the Sunday that was a real adventure but totally worth it! Walking the streets of Florence with our guide was like a real life history lesson and viewing "David" at the Accademia Gallery was breathtaking and evoked many emotions in both of us. It was a spiritual journey. Having the luxury in a private tour guide was the only way to go and we didn't line up for anything!

Adam and I truly believe that booking this tour through you Faye and Travelive was the best decision we have ever made and we look forward to planing our next adventure possibly to Greece in the coming future. We had an absolute blast and it was the trip we dreamed of thanks to you.

Kindest regards and many thanks

Joanne & Adam


Stacey & Jason, USA – Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast 25th Anniversary Trip to Italy

Hey Nico,

We had such a wonderful time in Italy!! Thank you! I have a friend going in March. I told her I would pass your info to her to see if you can help set some things up for them.

Jenny & Rick, USA – Honeymoon: Italian Classics

Nico,

I cannot thank you or Travelive enough for the honeymoon of our dreams!! I have to admit, that I was a bit nervous about traveling overseas for the first time- but when we arrived I knew immediately we were well taken care of! The drivers, hotel staff, tour guides, etc were all so wonderful. The hotels were AMAZING! The views from our balcony at the Plaza Lucchesi in Florence really put the icing on the cake :)

Before we left I was already telling all our family and friends how wonderful Travelive was to work with, and now I will be sure everyone I know books their trips here! It goes without saying our next overseas trip will not happen without you!

Attached are a few pictures...before we may or may not have had a few too many beers and wines in the evenings!! :)

Thanks again, Nico- for everything!

Rick & Jenny


Nina & Nick, USA – Honeymoon: Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast

We will be using you guys again in the future! We have no complaints, the accommodations were perfect!

Our transfer drivers were perfect! The tours and guides were outstanding! The food and wine was beyond our wildest dreams (no surprise there)!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I attached a couple pictures of Nick and I :)

Thank you again for making our honeymoon perfect.

Greg, Merinda, Ann, and Ron, USA – Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast 70th Birthday and 51st Anniversary trip to Italy

Hi Nico,

All elements of the trip were great and things went very smoothly.

The places we visited and the tours selected were great and your guidance was invaluable in putting that all together.

The hotels were all very good in terms of location and quality. All the breakfasts were great. Just a comment, the tubs were very high and slippery. Ron and Ann had walk-in showers at 2 of the hotels. If we had an option to request one we would have. We received champagne to welcome us at 2 of the hotels, which was very nice.

All the transfers and other transportation worked out well. Everyone was on time and all were very sociable and very good drivers (thank God).

All our tour guides were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

Merinda and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip and were happy we chose you and your company to work with.

Thanks for all you did to make this a great experience for us.

Greg & Merinda

Kim & David, USA - 40th Anniversary Trip to Venice, Tuscany and Rome

Nico,

Planning our 40th anniversary to Italy seemed like a daunting task until we contacted Nico. The itinerary he planned for us made us feel like royalty.

Accommodation was exceptional and our trip to Venice, Tuscany and Rome had a seamless flow thanks to his detailed knowledgeable planning.

We have nothing but positive things to say about our trip. Well informed guides, fruit & wine in our room and beautiful hotels & villas made us appreciate Nico's and travel2italy's expertise.

Many thanks for a trip of a lifetime!

Kim and David Lee

Tina & Gregory, USA – 25th Anniversary Trip to Venice, Florence and Rome

Nico,

I am a skeptical New Yorker but I was overwhelmed at the quality of the trip that you planned for us. After a disappointing experience with another travel “specialist” I feel very lucky to have found you and Travelive. Because I was planning a trip for a big anniversary I really wanted to explore various possibilities before making a final choice. I had a good idea what I wanted but I also wanted the input of an expert. You went above and beyond what I expected from a travel agent, patiently guiding me through the entire process and never rushing me or pushing me toward things I didn’t want. You never hesitated to answer my MANY questions and your expertise was welcome. You listened to what I described as my ideal trip and planned several different itineraries to provide me with outlines in the various price ranges that I requested. The “proof is in the pudding” as they say and now that I’ve returned I can tell you that Travelive offers a QUALITY experience. I’m fussy at this point in my life and I can now vouch for the fact that if anyone wants a luxurious no-hassle experience this is where they're going to get it. (Read more...)

Susan, George, Candace and Pauline, USA - Vacation: Italian Classics

Hello Nico,

The trip was outstanding!  A dream!

From start to finish it was smooth sailing and we loved every experience you planned for us. 

The tour guides in each city were so personable and professional while at the same time so full of knowledge and love for their city. I learned so much and so enjoyed each of them. 

The cooking tour was a definite highlight, and we all fell in love with Chef Fabio for his generosity. 

Thank you for making my dream trip a reality.

Desiree & Keith, USA – Vacation: Rome, Sorrento, Capri, Tuscany and Venice

In September, my husband and I were finally able visit Italy, a trip that each of us has waited a lifetime to take and is one that we had been actively planning and saving for three years. As amazing as we each knew this trip would be before we stepped on that airplane, the reality is that the trip was so much MORE than we ever could have imagined, and you were a big part of that. 

This trip was years in the making for us - when we finally decided it was time to stop saying, "Someday we'll visit Italy," we hit the Internet to research all of the possible places to visit and started asking everyone we knew who had visited Italy for advice on where to go, what to do, etc. By the time we were ready to start booking our travels we felt we had a really good idea of where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see, but we needed help with booking hotels, trains and still had a few lingering questions to help us narrow down our final itinerary. However, we found ourselves quickly discouraged as it felt as if every travel agency we contacted fell into two categories: The first was only interested in selling us first-class, all the way and told us flat out that our budget wasn't something they could work with; the second already had pre-planned trips and itineraries that, although they would advertise were "customizable," really weren't, after all. (Read more...)

Lisa, Steve, Sandra, and Thomas, USA – Vacation: Italian Classics

Dear Mina,

Just wanted to let you know that we have arrived back home from what was perhaps the best adventure of our lives so far!  We had an outstanding visit to Italy, Rome, Florence and Venice. !  I am speaking on behalf of Steve and Sandra Norton as well. The four of us were most impressed with your services and felt very fortunate indeed to have such wonderful guides, a very special shout out to Fredericka. Fredericka was our guide to the Vatican and she was absolutely delightful and well informed.  All the guides were superb and each had a special slant to the subject matter that they presented.

Our drivers to and from were of utmost professionalism, always on time, if not early! Our Discover Tuscany tour was perhaps our favorite as we ended up at the Casanova farm for a most delightful lunch and education on balsamic Vinegar.

Without hesitation I would recommend your services for anyone traveling to Italy or anywhere you go for that matter. We enjoyed every minute of our tour and will remember it always!

Attached are a few photos of our time Italy. The last photo of the bunch is in Venice where we had front row seats to the George Clooney wedding watch! We did indeed see George Clooney twice in his boat parade which made our Venice visit even more special.

Thank you again,
Lisa

Brittney & Casey, USA – Honeymoon: Italian Classics

Hi Marina,

I apologize for my delay in getting back to you, I have been busy getting caught back up with "real life" again. We had an absolutely amazing time in Italy and could not have been happier with the trip you booked for us. Some highlights were definitely our private tour guide to the Colosseum (he was wonderful and so informative), our stays at all the wonderful hotels you selected for us (my personal favorite probably The Rose Garden Palace), the delicious free daily breakfasts that we never missed, the excursion to the beautiful island of Capri and well so much more but those are just a few things to mention. We fell in love with Rome so it was hard to leave but we fully enjoyed our first class train ride to Florence and the drivers who met us - it really made everything so easy so we didn't even have to think which was exactly what I was looking for. From the people to the service and the food we couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon.

We have so many photos its almost overwhelming but I've attached a few favorites which you are welcome to post on your website. I will be sure to also spread the word to friends, family and colleagues who are looking to travel to any of the places you service. I am so happy I came across travelive and booked through you. I hope to start saving now so we can experience Greece and Spain next (which I will definitely be booking through travelive)!

Thanks for a fabulous honeymoon!

Brittney

Joan & Family, USA – Vacation: Italian Classics

Joan planned a spectacular trip to Italy for her family which included Rome, Florence and Venice. They had a wonderful time and said ‘Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed the trip!’

Michelle and Family, USA – Vacation: Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast

Hi Marina,

I have to say that our trip to Italy was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience. The country, the food, the wine and the people were all amazing. I can honestly say that Travelive came thru for us 100%!!!  Everything went off without a hitch from the transfers, the hotel accommodations and the tours. The tour guides that you matched us up with were great people and so knowledgeable, we didn't just come back with amazing memories, we came back with tons of new knowledge about Italy and its history. I have to say Venice and the Amalfi Coast were unforgettable however Florence ended up to be my favourite city. I have attached 4 pictures for you, 3 of my daughter, my husband and myself in Venice and one is the view that we had from our hotel room on the Amalfi Coast....that hotel was definitely a five star from the rooms, staff as well as all of the amenities, I have to say the pool right down at the ocean was great!!!  My daughter even did the ice bucket challenge for ALS and dove right into the ocean after I poured the bucket of ice over her head while we were in Amalfi. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Travelive to others or use the services again for another family vacation. 

Thank you for the unforgettable memories!!!

Ron and Friends, Australia – Custom Italy Vacation

Hi Mina

We are now back home and would like to give you feedback from our trip. First of all thank you, we had a fantastic time! Your organisation and planning was perfect. All the drivers were professional, courteous and punctual. Nothing was a problem. The guides were professional, well informed and accommodating to our requests. The hotels were excellent for 4-star in Italy. The positions were all very central. The only one we were not keen on was the one in Naples but in saying that we could not have had a better position and the staff was excellent. Also there was a festival on so Naples was very busy.

Thank you for the complimentary dinner in Reggio Calabria we had a great night, the restaurant had a lovely view. One of the highlights for us was our lunch at the winery Casa Emma. We would certainly recommend it.

Once again thank you, our entire group had an amazing time and we would have no hesitation in recommending you. Please feel free to use us as a reference.

On another matter, our daughter and son-in-law are planning a trip next September to Europe. They are keen to do a cruise round the Greek Isles. As they are in their mid 20s I was wondering if you could recommend a cruise which caters more for young people.

Thank you again we look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers Ron & Christine

Molly and Brendan, USA – Vacation: Rome, Siena, Florence and Venice

Hi Mina,

I hope you are doing well!

I just wanted to write you a note and say thank you for everything you did to help us with our trip to Italy!

The trip was absolutely amazing and perfect and was the best 10 days of my life so far! Everything went off without a hitch, the rooms were amazing, all of the drivers and tour guides were great and we had the time of our lives! And Brendan proposed in Rome on the Spanish Steps which made it even more amazing and memorable. So thank you so much again, you and your team are amazing and we hope to work with you again in the future. You never know, maybe we will be taking our honeymoon to Greece and will need your services again :)

Thanks again and I hope you have a great day!
Molly

Amanda and Brian, USA – Vacation: Rome and Florence

Marina,

Our trip was amazing! Thank you for all your help in planning and preparing us for the trip. All the transportation arrangements helped tremendously and perfectly arranged!

We absolutely loved our stay in Florence. We had a fantastic view of the Duomo from our hotel! Such an amazing city with so much culture, history and character! It definitely helped to have our first tour the first morning of our stay in Florence. We were able to get some great advice on things to see, places to eat and of course the best gelato places! Our favorite gelato place was Perche No! – They use all natural ingredients and it was fantastic! Our favorite lunch place became Il Frattalini (a small sandwich shop, right around the corner from Perche No!).  Both were extremely close to Duomo. We would highly recommend climbing the stairs in the Duomo! It was a fantastic view of Florence and such an interesting hike up the tight staircases to get to the top. We were able to see everything we wanted to in Florence in the 3 days spent there; however I could see myself staying longer in the future to explore the city more beyond the tourist attractions.

Darcie and Matthew, USA – Honeymoon: Rome, Tuscany and Amalfi Coast

Hi Faye,

Just want to start by saying thank you SO much for all of your planning and help! 

This was probably the best trip I have ever been on and the most organized by far. I am a very nervous traveler - if you didn't notice - and everything went as planned. I have to highly recommend that the company continue to use the drivers that we were placed with. Both companies used, sent us the nicest drivers, we made us feel comfortable and taken care of. They made sure we felt secure and safe, not to mention they talked with us and taught us so much along the way. Our favorites were Giovanni from the Tuscany/Siena tour and Anello from Naples to Positano. We loved them so much and plan to stay in touch with them. 

The places we traveled were amazing. All of Tuscany was beautiful and everyone was kind. Our favorite place we stayed was in Positano, Covo dei Sarcenci - WOW - the best place on the beach. We plan to return there many more times. Every driver was on time and every tour was amazing. Even Rome being such a busy place our tour guide AL was great. He took us on the bus and basically tailored the tour to what we wanted to see. All of the drivers continued to give us recommendations in each place we went and we were not let down by any. 

Overall I was beyond pleased with your work and your help! I will recommend you and the company to everyone I know, and we hope to use your services again. 

Thanks again,
Darcie

Tara and Fran, USA – Vacation: Amalfi Coast Explorer

Dear Mina,

I want to thank you for planning a splendid trip for Tara and me. Your choices were incredible - especially La Minervetta in Sorrento and Hotel Palazzo Murat in Positano. They were not only beautiful to look at but friendly, warm with wonderful breakfasts. The settings were magnificent. What a joy!

Also, our tour guide (Luisanna Palumbo) and our driver (Nello Aversa) for our adventure to Pompeii and Vesuvius were the best people, knowledgeable, sweet and thoughtful. They suggested a great vineyard for lunch, Cantina del Vesuvio. We had an incredible experience.  In fact all of the drivers who collected us and guided us to the next stop were prompt and very nice. Alviani Viaggi did a wonderful job!

Both Tara and I will highly recommend you and your travel agency to all of our friends and family - you planned an outstanding trip. One of these days we'd like to take a trip to Greece - and you can be sure we will call on you.

Lastly, the recommendation for the travel agency that booked our airline reservations also did a very good job.

Many thanks for a very memorable vacation,

My best,
Fran

Ivanka and Mark, Australia – Honeymoon: Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast

Hi Faye,

What an amazing honeymoon we had in Italy! – Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. Really professional, great choice of hotels and drivers, really well thought out in terms of locations.

Thanks again,
Ivanka

Jennie and Tristin, USA – Vacation: Siena, Florence, Sorrento and Rome

Hi Marina,

We had a wonderful time on our trip. I thought our itinerary was planned perfectly from countryside to city to coast to city. A nice combination of peace and beauty then to the hustle and bustle of a big city, then back to beautiful coastline and village setting, then return to the hustle/bustle of a city again. All the transfers were smooth and easy. I appreciated the drivers and assistance. Our tour guides had lots of passion and knowledge to share and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I liked all the hotels along with the breakfast included. Jennie and I pretty much walked, toured, ate, and drank wine. I did manage to have a different flavor Gelato everyday too!

I have attached a few of our photos.

Thanks again,
Tristin

PS.  I recently gave a friend your number, hopefully she will call.

Martha, Brian, Fred, and Nancy, USA – Vacation: Tuscany Experience

Hi Marina,

Before I forget and get back into the swing of my hum drum life here in Georgia, I wanted to take a few minutes and give you my thoughts on our trip.

First let me just say that Italy was wonderful and it was so nice not having to think about anything in terms of transfers, guides, etc.  We had fantastic weather so we were very fortunate not to have to think about that.

When I was handed an envelope by our first driver from the airport in Rome to our relocated hotel I had a feeling this was going to be the first in a line of many changes. Thank goodness I was wrong. As much as the Rose Garden Palace was a great hotel (we stayed there on the last night), the Grand Flora Marriott was a great second choice. The location was perfect, the hotel staff was the friendliest and most helpful, the breakfast was wonderful and the location of breakfast on the roof of the hotel made for a great backdrop. (Read more...)

Amy and Wayne, USA – Vacation: Montepulciano and Siena

Hi Faye,

What a truly marvelous trip we had. Your guidance and help were invaluable.

When using a service like yours, things have to happen on two levels. First, events have to occur on time and without a hitch. And second, of course, is that the recommendations have to live up to their billing. You score an A+ on both. Our drivers, in particular Christiano and Elio; and our guides Monica, Claudia, and Stefania were superb. They didn't just educate us on the histories and the towns, but also gave us unique glimpses into current life in Tuscany.

The tour of Tenuta Valdipiatta was also a highlight. I could go on but will finish by saying a big "Grazie" from Amy and me and letting you know that we will surely be recommending your services.

Sincerely,
Wayne

Nancy and Charlie, USA – Vacation: Italian Classics

Dear Faye,

Where do we begin? There is so much to tell you. First off we must thank you and your group for a flawless and amazing trip. Everything that you arranged went off without a hitch, from the time we arrived at the airport in Rome to saying our goodbyes at the Venice airport.

Let's begin with our hotel rooms in Rome, Florence and Venice…loved all the choices of hotels… they were top notch, in the middle of the action…or not too far from it, the staff was pleasant and most accommodating, rooms were beautifully decorated and of course very comfortable. (Read more...)

Kristie and Jason, USA - Vacation: Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast

Hi Marina,

The trip was exceptional and wouldn't have been the same without your wonderful and carefully planned accommodations. Everything went completely smooth without any trouble. Additionally, the hotels, tours, and transportation were excellent. We especially loved the final hotel in Sorrento. I believe it was the Minervetta Maison. It was truly unique with the coastal inspired decor and pool in the cliff. The concierge at each hotel was also helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions to the sights. The trip was a trip of a lifetime for us - although I do hope to use your services to experience Greece, Egypt or even Turkey in the future. Thank you so much for everything!

Best,
Kristie

Sabrina and Ken, Canada- Honeymoon: Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast

Hi Faye,

Ken and I returned home last night from our amazing trip in Italy. We wanted to send our thanks to you for arranging such a fantastic trip for us, especially on such short notice. We wanted to provide you with some feedback on things we particularly enjoyed. Hotel Saturnia in Venice was our favorite hotel. The location was perfect and the service was impeccable. Of very special note, the tour in Tuscany with Francesco was the very best day of our entire trip for both Ken and I. I hope you will use his services with many more clients in the future.

I definitely would not hesitate to use your services again and will recommend to my friends and colleagues.

Thank you again,
Sabrina and Ken

Paul, Emma and Amy, USA - Vacation: Rome and Amalfi Coast

Hi Marina,

The tour guides, hotels, and convenience were phenomenal. We wished we had spent 4 days in Sorrento and 3 days in Rome as we like being on the coast and less crowded but Rome was wonderful too with all the history!
Grand Excelsior in Sorrento. Great recommendation!
Emma and Amy loved it.

Dave and Renee, USA – Vacation: Italian Classics

Hi Marina,

Yes, we're settled back into daily life…we had a blast! Really appreciate all of the organization and recommendations in each of the cities. In terms of the hotels we would rank Rose Garden #1 of the 3…the other rooms were much smaller and not as comfortable. All of the arranged transports/shuttles were awesome! Everyone was friendly, punctual, and easy to find. That took so much unnecessary stress out of the trip.

There is one local sandwich place you need to add to your recommended list in Florence and was right around the corner from Bernini Palace..I'll get the name for you, it was amazing!

Here are a few pics for you, will definitely recommend you to other friends, and Greece looks like it would be a great trip as well!

Regards,
Dave

Gretchen and Mary, USA – Vacation : Italian Classics

Hi Marina,

I just wanted to send you a quick email and thank you for all your help with organizing our amazing trip to Italy!  It's a very beautiful country, and this trip has made me wish on more than one occasion that I lived here!!  I'll definitely come back, and also use Travelive again as well!

Thank you again,
Gretchen

Peter and Susan, USA - Vacation: Tuscany Experience

Marina,

We are back in Houston and (somewhat over the jet lag in time for going) back at work after a wonderful trip! Thank you very much for all of the wonderful planning for our adventure. The trip was everything we hoped for and more. The itinerary was perfect, the drivers wonderful, and the hotels outstanding. We felt that we had the perfect amount of time in each place we stayed, and we loved slowing down in Tuscany. Even the last day return to Florence had great benefits for a bevy of last minute gift shopping.

One little highlight among many: We even prepared an honest to gosh Italian meal for 13 of the guests at the villa when we took a cooking class on afternoon. Two widows from Canada took the class with us, and they were a hoot! We all had much fun taking our "chef-ly" bows that evening!
In describing our trip to many relatives at a family reunion this weekend, each wanted to know how we "planned it." I told them it was easy, get a true professional and relax and enjoy!

Thanks for all of you assistance and thoughtfulness.

Until our next trip,

Sincerely,
Peter


Jacqueline and Brian, USA - Vacation: Italian Classics and Amalfi Coast

Hi Marina,

I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner.....I must tell you we absolutely loved our trip.  It was amazing.....our hotels were great; the staff in all the hotels were so helpful and friendly.  We took advantage of the suggestions for each city from the list you provided and were not disappointed.  Our guides were exceptional.

In planning our trip, I knew that my husband and I would love Italy (which we did) but I feel so fortunate that I learned about Travelive by chance.  Our trip exceeded our expectations and we have fabulous memories. 

Thank you so much - I will be happy to forward you pictures soon.

Happy holiday!!

Jacqueline


Donna, USA - Vacation: Rome & Amalfi Coast

Mina,

Thank you so much for helping plan our vacation to Italy. The hotels were great and the locations perfect. The drivers were professional, prompt, and friendly. The tour guides did a great job, were very informative, and fun. Your plan, voucher system, and organizational skills  made every day enjoyable and worry-free. We would highly recommend you to anyone who plans to travel.

Thanks again for everything.

Donna Douglas


Billy & Jo, USA - Honeymoon: Italian Classics & Amalfi Coast

Mina,

This was better than any honeymoon I could have imagined!  My wife has always said she wanted to honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast, but I was really interested in doing some sightseeing as well, since neither of us had ever been to Italy before.  This was the perfect combination!  All the details were so expertly coordinated, we didn’t have to worry about a thing!  All we had to do was relax and enjoy our first trip as newlyweds!

Thanks!  We’ll be recommending you to all our friends for their future vacations!

Billy & Jo


Ralph, USA - Vacation: Italian Classics

Dear Mina,

Being Italian-American, I spent several summers in Italy as a child, but spending all my time visiting relatives, I never seemed to be able to do any sightseeing!  I decided that the best way to design my dream trip was to go through the experts, and I was right!  It’s incredible how much I got to do in the time I was there.  I don’t feel like I missed a thing.  In fact, I got to see more than I even imagined!  Even though I’ve been to Italy several times before, I never got to see it like this!  It was amazing

Thank you!
Ralph


Gina & Paul, USA - Vacation: Italian Classics

Mina,

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Italy 20 years ago.  This year for our anniversary, we decided to relive the experience.  It was even better this time around!  Our first trip, we planned it ourselves, but we didn’t know anything about coordinating a vacation.  Needless to say, we came across all kinds of problems!  This time, everything was taken care of for us.  It was absolutely perfect, and a wonderful way to celebrate 20 years of our happy marriage!

Gina
