We really enjoyed last year trip with Eric and the Italia Dolce Vita people are outstanding choices for wine, food and lodging. All mega star locations. 

Sally & Michael, Palm Desert, CA

Yes, you are indeed a Wonder Woman! George and I continue to marvel at all the wonderful ways you not only put together such a fabulous trip for all of us but also seamlessly guided us with such charm, good humor, care and competence. We, in our 79 years, have been on many trips  by now; but this trip certainly rates as a top one for the spectacular combination of opportunities for learning,  experiencing,  tasting, meeting local people. Wow!!!

So thank you for all you did to make the trip so very special. We both look forward to seeing you -- and, maybe, again in Italy!                       

Gratefully, and with hugs,  - Pat, Andover MA

You have given us the gift of a most unique and wonderful experience in Italy. We treasure each pearl you have given us and our necklace is very long and very luminous.

We look forward to more special times in the future and to adding another string to our necklace.

May all your endeavors be happy and as successful as this one. 

Again, we cannot thank you enough for our extraordinary memories.

I thank you so much for making arrangements for my  stay in Menaggio - Lake Como, and appreciated the efforts as last minute request and so difficult to find me a vacation apartment in August - notoriously a busy month. But it was great to meet so many Italians enjoying their summer vacation. I met some great people.  I had a great time!!!
