This was a fabulous trip and here’s why: The Top 4 Reasons We Love this Travel Company:
#4. They Know Stuff We Don’t
The travel company's team’s knowledge is staggering. Did we know not to miss the Tarot Gardens near Capalbio? No, but they did. They know what to do and who can help make it all happen. Hotels, restaurants, tour guides, extra adventures — they know how to put it all together for a smooth and memorable trip.
#3. Their Relationships Are Key
To us, even more important than a great relationship between the tour company and the travelers is the one between the travel company's staff and their preferred services, like hotels, tour guides, drivers, etc. Because the company seeks out and works with great businesses and individuals, the traveler gets the best. Do I know how to find the company that makes sure the water taxi is at our Venice hotel at 4 am to get us to the land taxi to the airport? No, I do not — but this travel company does, so we are covered. Even in the dark!
# 2. They Have Buying Power
First, the company was completely respectful of our budget and priorities. Never felt pressured to “buy more” or upgrade constantly.
Second, because of those relationships mentioned above, this travel company could give us truly wonderful options at our comfortable price point. Lovely hotels, amazing tour guides, and drivers — not likely to be affordable if we were assembling this trip ourselves. Strong partnerships between this travel company and these folks benefit the traveler most of all.
# 1 They Do The Right Thing
Throughout our time working/traveling with this company, we always felt they were doing the right thing for all involved. Example: would we be willing to consider a different housing option when the favorite hotel was unexpectedly unavailable due to renovation? Great revised plan benefitted all, so good to go. Could the company help us with train tickets when thanks to hurricane in our area, we were dealing with suddenly homeless family members and wonky internet? Of course!
The old saying “ You will never go wrong doing the right thing” is spot on and really is the core of this travel company's business model. And who benefits? Everyone involved, including these two lucky Texas travelers.
The ability to balance the freedom and independence we wanted with the guidance and expertise of true travel professionals was key for us. Driving around Tuscany on our own was glorious, but we could do that because the travel company gave us the route and the stops. Having logistics taken care of made this trip worry-free and so much more enjoyable.
Tours in Florence and Venice with excellent guides were highlights. The boat tour in Venice gave us the chance to see so much more beyond the tourist paths.
Nothing. We would call this company, have our planning conversations, and let the experts go do the work.
