We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Italy. It was the best vacation we have ever had! We are so grateful for your work in making this happen…..
* Venice: All transports went smoothly. The hotel room was wonderful with a lovely view. The breakfast at the hotel was not good. Our Hidden Venice tour was good. Our gondola ride was lovely. Your restaurant recommendations were superb! We loved Venice and are very glad that we stayed as long as we did.
* Rome: all transports went smoothly and we had very friendly drivers. Hotel 47 was ok …. Our tours in Rome were outstanding…both tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, both had studies anthropology and gave us a wealth of information. The Vatican was dreadful, no fault of yours. It’s just so crowded and we felt like we were being herded like cattle through the museums. The group tour guide was ok, nothing great. I would have rather spent my money on a very private tour of the Vatican and stayed in a less expensive hotel…all in hind sight, of course….
* Capri: the highlight of our trip! La Minerva was outstanding…by far the best hotel we stayed in on the trip. They were wonderful and we have no doubt we will return there for a longer stay. We ate at great restaurants, recommended by the hotel, did several hikes and walks, saw some of the sights, took a private boat trip around the island, and soaked in the beauty of the magnificent island. It was heavenly.
*Positano: ….. our hike on the Path of the Gods was awesome!! Maurizio is a beautiful person. It was overcast and very misty so we didn’t see much in the way of views but it didn’t matter…our hike was amazing. The countryside was beautiful, we went to his family’s farm and had fresh lemonade and carrots out of the ground, saw the abandoned church, and ate a most fabulous lunch. It was great!…….
Matteo, we could not have done this trip without you. Your expertise and quick planning helped to make this last minute vacation a reality and a dream come true. We are so grateful for all that you did to follow our wishes and requests while staying within our budget. We hope that our full report of our experiences will only help you to continue doing a wonderful job creating vacations for others.
We will be sure to contact you when we start to plan our Tuscany trip!
