Well this is long over due but we did want to follow up on our trip from last September.
First thanks so much for assisting with planning our first trip to Italy!
The trip met and exceeded our expectations! We only wish we had had more time.
All of the places we stayed, the Villa in Panzano, the boutique residence in Florence and the hotel in Rome were all top notch. The staff in all three were very accommodating. One of the highlights of the hotel in Rome was that they gave us a free cell phone to use while there and the GPS system had a ‘Home’ button that always returned you to the hotel!
While in Chianti we attended the cooking class with Eleonora which was a standout. The town of Panzano was very quaint, a great place to relax and a central location from where day trips were easy to plan.
The guides you hired for us in Florence and Rome were polite, knowledgeable and did a great job of commandeering us through the crowds and highlighting things we wanted to see and others we would have totally overlooked. I would recommend the use of guides for anyone visiting the sites.
All in all this was a great trip. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future and using your services once again.
