Fairytale. If we were given one word to describe our vacation, that would be it. Rome, Tuscany, Positano... Wow! What an experience. We were looking for an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime trip that was easy to plan. Our travel company delivered. The trip was out of a story book. Words can not describe the memories that we will hold on to forever. From the very first phone call with our agent at the travel company we knew we were in good hands. We described our passions and dreams and our agent listened intently, gave us ideas we could never come up with on our own, and developed an itinerary that far exceeded any expectations we could have conjured ourselves. Her attention to detail was second to none. From the moment we left Boston and landed in Italy we knew we would be taken care of. We had a detailed itineray filled with transfers, recommendations, excursions and experiences. Never once did we have to worry about a thing. Along the way we made a couple changes.... some planned some not, but no matter our wishes our travel company was with us and making it happen the whole way. Expectations met, and then greatly exceeded! We feel so fortunate to have found this company and have already recommended our travel company to all friends looking for an experience of a lifetime... We learned that Italy is more felt than captured in locations, and for this we are extremely grateful, appreciative and will continue to share with our friends and family. We would give this company 10 stars if we could give them more...
The possibilities are endless... Was it gallivanting through Rome with our private Archaeologist Tour Guide, experiencing the Palantino, Colesseum, and ancient ruins... was it the tantalizing food tour in Trastevere that made you feel like you were right at home, or could it have been watching the sunset over the hills of Tuscany after cooking an authentic Italian meal with our private Chef teacher in Chianti? Maybe it was relaxing on our private balcony overlooking all of Positano every evening? It very well could have been our privately guided hike on the Path of the Gods with a local that grew up playing in those very hills, or having a whole restaurant and its staff (completely made up of one family) join us in singing "Thats Amore" the next evening... So many options so little space to capture them... The whole trip was one gift after another. No matter what you are looking for YOU can get it.... The memories you make are up to you... but the company you choose (this company in our opinion) will get you as close as you can to attaining them.
One thing we will never forget - through complete fault of our own, we missed our car rental reservations in Florence, and were not sure we would be able to spend the next four days in Tuscany as planned. We called our agent and she immediately took charge, securing us an impromptu night at a beautiful hotel in Florence and effortlessly (in our experience!) got us another car for the next day so we could continue on our fairytale journey as if we never missed a beat. That being said - having our agent "watching over us" throughout our vacation made it worry-free and more enjoyable than we could have ever anticipated.
If we could have done one thing differently, it would have been to extend our trip by one more day in each location. We chose to do as many things in every destination as we could fit in, and having one day of down-time between each destination to relax and soak in our experience would have been nice. However, we do not regret one experience or tour or destination. Perfection. I can't wait to work with this company again - very soon!
