Good morning! I am ok the way to the airport now. I really appreciate your assistance in arranging the transport.
The trip so far has been wonderful. We are very pleased with the travel arrangement, all the drivers are very professional, all accommodations are good and the wine tour at Le Macchioele is very good too.
I am sure Maggie & Anne will enjoy the rest of the tour.
Once again thank you for arranging a great trip.
Thanks for your email, we are back safely in Hong Kong, and unfortunately into reality! We really had a very good experience in Italy and was really happy with most of your arrangements.
All the restaurants and hotel that you arranged were indeed good choices that gave us great service and quality food and accommodation. Italy have indeed left a wonderful memory for me and I would hope to go back in the very near future. You really did capture our intentions for our trip as you know we wanted a wine & dine experience in Italy, and we have indeed tasted the food and wine from the Piedmont region. We tasted the ‘Plin’ pasta in sage butter and we decided we liked the wine from Bolgheri the best, specially the wine tasting in Le Macchiole, it was the most enjoyable wine tasting as their wine was so good and the guide Veronica was knowledgeable and passionate of their wine and they arranged the tour with such great details which made us enjoyed it more.
However one thing you can improve on is the cooking class which were really a big group. We were expecting a small group of 8 maximum with a private chef, but the group was 23 people. But overall the chefs were good and the food we prepare turned out good.
I have to say all the drivers that you arranged were always early, very professional and polite. They are also very knowledgeable guide throughout our visits to various places. I have to add that Luca that drove us during our Alba/Langhe area were especially nice and professional. Please do give his company our compliments on his service. The next time I go back there I would definitely request for his service again!
Sorry for taking so long to reply, I had work and life to catch up on after the trip and also the photos needed time for me to load. There were so many of them, I just attached a few but really, the best pictures are those in our memories.
I would highly recommend you to any of my friends that are looking into travelling to Italy. I will definitely come to Italy again soon(hopefully next year!!) and will definitely use your service again!!
(PS-That’s 3 of us in Cooking Class, Yvonne and I at Villa Amelia, I am the one with long hair.)”
