Brothers' Reunion - October 2013

Working with my first clients from Saudi Arabia proved to be a wonderful experience! I was asked to help three brothers have a reunion – since busy lives often keep them from spending quality time together. They wanted to discover Tuscany and include a few days at a seaside location. Air travel was through Rome, so I proposed a Chianti and Amalfi Coast itinerary. Beautiful accommodations, cooking classes, wine tours, a farm visit, sightseeing excursions and fine dining were all included. I couldn’t be happier that their trip turned out to be everything they had hoped for! In fact, they enjoyed it so much, it looks like they’ll even be coming back this summer with the whole family!!

Dear Kathy,

We can not stop thanking you for the best trip you had arranged for us. We have enjoyed every single thing you had recommended.

It was our pleasure to recommend your name to everyone we met during our stay and also to tell all those who have a passion to try the New Tuscan Experience.

You have done an amazing job Kathy! We felt your touch and extra care in everything. 

All of us will keep remembering you and wishing to meet you soon along with our family.

Please let me know if you need any support in the Middle East now and in the future.

Big thanks from all the brothers!

A Family with Teens - August 2013

Hi Kathy,

Just thinking the other day about our trip and missing it! We had an amazing time in Italy this summer. Your direction and guidance were crucial to making our trip a success. Planning for a family of six with varying ages of children is no easy feat. 

We had plenty of things to do that everyone loved and we also figured out when to just not do anything and just enjoy Italy. My personal favorite in Tuscany was that organic farm and winery. The food was amazing, the owner so informative (the kids were into the truffle hunting business) and the scenery magnificent. We would've never found that place without you!

The kids loved Florence and the great tour guide who walked us through the city. Each day was filled with something beautiful and exciting and then to go back to our villa every evening was the absolute best part. We just loved that place! 

We have been telling all our friends about you - we would totally call you again for help next time we come to visit!

Four Couples - October 2013

Some of our clients are very independent travelers. They contact us to help them find the right villa and offer some itinerary suggestions for self-exploration. We are happy to oblige, since our objective is to provide as much (or as little) assistance as you require. The important thing is that we get it right! Unfortunately, we have no control over Mother Nature… but for the rest, we do our utmost!

Thank you Kathy!

For the wonderfully arranged villa. Everything was as expected and even better. Scenery was fantastic and all worked fine.

Yes, the weather was not as good as we hoped but it’s reality and no one can do anything.

All the best to you.
