Cannot tell you how much we have loved this trip and the adventures you sent us on!!!!


We saw places, learned things, met people, had food and wine that could never have been had had we not been with you. The whole experience was magical. We're still basking in the afterglow. 


We are safely home and loving every memory, looking forward to enjoying my trip for the rest of my life.

Thank you, love love love hotel and location. You hit it out of the park. Thank you again for a truly memorable trip.  


Can't stop smiling and thinking about our wonderful trip that you did for us! We so appreciate you and your talents!  And miss you and Italy!

It was a wonderful trip and all of us learned so much about Sicilian cooking and way of life. Things we just did not know. You have such a variety of contacts that were so valuable in weaving together the interesting lifestyle of Sicily. We all have come away with a better understanding of that part of the world. Thank you for your guidance.
