Our Client Comments

Here are just a few of the unsolicited comments we have received from our clients…

Trish – Now that we are all home, I wanted to send you a final thank you note for putting our Italy trip together.  It was a fantastic experience, we all had a great time and it was a really special event for my mother.  There was much crying (in a good way).  The hotels were great, the convenience of the transfers was huge and all the vendors were really fantastic.  For the record – the day in Tuscany, and the trip to Castello di Verizzanno was a real highlight.  As was the tiny fish place in Venice, which we got to thru the hotel concierge, but was also on your list as well. Thanks again- Jonathan and family, Boston

The trip [France]as absolutely amazing!  It was such a great experience and romantic honeymoon!!!  Thank you so much for everything!  The hotels were great!  The ones in Paris and St Remy were incredible from the staff to the accommodation. And we had chocolate, roses, and champagne waiting for us! Do we have you to thank for that?  The people at these hotels couldn’t have been more kind and helpful.  Nice and the Riviera were stunning. The view from the hotel was like nothing we had seen before. I must have snapped two hundred pictures from the balcony. We also took our breakfast there two mornings.  Two of the days we just sat on the beach all day long.  The Plaza was a perfect location.  The room was spectacular, but I think they must be going through a management change.  The staff was pretty clueless about the beach, the hotel restaurant and bar, and the restaurants.  Maybe it was just the end of season.  But I would go back to Nice in a heartbeat. I think she wants to go back next year. It was sad that the trip had to end.  But we need to get back to work and make some $$$.  You did an absolute wonderful job planning our trip and I can’t think you enough.  Let’s do it again! Daniel and Nicole, Richmond, Virginia

We are back [from Italy]. The trip was fabulous and everything you helped us plan worked like clockwork. Our only regret is that we didn’t spend more time in Capri.  Next time…  Thanks for everything.  Larry and Joanna, Philadelphia

Dear Trisha, Thanks for your message. We had a wonderful time in France and owe you a great deal of gratitude for the arrangements. Both hotels your booked for us were terrific, and I would recommend them to others. The first in St. Affrique was our favorite of the two, but that shouldn’t discount the charm and hospitality of the second. We also had no problems with the car rental and flights. Thank you so much for your quick response to my initial inquiry for help. I am delighted to know that you’re still doing well in the business and will definitely contact you in the future, as well as recommend you to others. Best wishes,
Katherine, Ithaca, NY

The Douro River [Portugal] was spectacular – scenery the likes of which we have never seen!  Loved the people, the little towns, the wineries – each day brought a new wow.  Porto was a special surprise. The fall colors in the vineyards were gorgeous.  Loved the trip – thank you for arranging it for us! Margaret and David, Nantucket, MA

Jim and I returned from our Hawaii trip yesterday evening.  Just wanted to take a moment this morning to let you know that it was superb.  Using our vouchers was like a magic carpet ride, allowing us to whisk into rent cars, accommodations, and special trips with a minimum of fuss.  We have no complaints at all.  You were right, it rained almost incessantly in Hilo, but we were totally successful with our birding trip to Hakalau Forest and delighted in a full-day visit to Volcanoes National Park.  The condo at Waikoloa was fabulous.  We often bought prepared food at a nearby gourmet grocery and ate like kings on our scenic terrace rather than going to expensive restaurants.  Plus the extra space of the condo afforded lots of room to dry snorkel gear, towels, etc, after trips to the beach. The Stars and Summit trip with Hawaii Forest and Trails was also excellent.  We would recommend it to other scientific-minded folks. Thanks again for your help in organizing our journey! Judy and Jim, Maryland

We are back [TuscanyItaly] and we had a great time. We enjoyed everything from the wineries to the cooking class. The weather was perfect throughout the week. Each of us had their favorites. Montalcino seems high on everyone’s list though. We never had a problem – your arrangements were perfectly followed. Even our arrival in Florence airport was within 5 minutes of the group. Barbara was incredible and we decided she should be an honorary member of the family. We know that this was not the easiest of trips to plan, with 5 couples coming from 5 different areas. You did it to perfection. We have already given your name to others and we will continue to contact you with future travel plans. Thanks, Ginny & Bob, Ohio

Everything was great!  [TuscanyItaly] Sienna was breathtaking!   There was one little bit of confusion when we went for the wine tasting at Castello di Verrazzano. Our guide thought we all were vegetarians and when we told her no, she made the adjustment well to our satisfaction.  This wine tasting was by far the best of the tour.  The Verrazzano estate was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for putting together a wonderful package.  Should we have the opportunity to travel abroad in the future, we will definitely call upon you. Grazie, grazie, grazie!! Joe and Georgeanna, Ohio

Thank you so much for all of your help with the planning of our trip!! [Alaska Cruise] Everything went great!! We had rain twice during the cruise, and apparently there were some bad storms on the Pacific the day we were to go to Hubbard, so we went through Tracy Arm instead-spectacular!!!
Really was a beautiful and amazing vacation. I’m thrilled we were all able to go together! I’ve started thinking of somewhere to go next year and we were all talking about a Hawaiian cruise, or going to a resort for a week. I’ll keep in touch and when we have some ideas of where we want to go, I’ll certainly contact you. Dawn, Ohio

Our trip [to Ireland] was fantastic.  We had a great group of people. Paddy Hayde was our tour director/driver & he was excellent.  I wrote on the comment folder that he should be given a raise.  He was very knowledgeable  &  gracious. It would be hard to say we had a favorite place.  Every day was a new adventure & we saw so many awesome things.  I am sure we’ll try to find our way back to Ireland someday. Thank you for arranging a most memorable trip.  We’ll be telling folks how super it was & how easy you made things for us. Jackie, Carey, NC

We followed your suggestions pretty religiously and had a fantastic time [in Portugal]. Hotel Italia was great; the saltwater pool was such a pleasure. We loved Sintra and if we go back I want to spend far more time in the gardens there. I was really surprised with how much I liked Lisbon. We went there and had a great wander around without much of a plan. We had a very good dinner one night in Cascais at a place recommended to us by the wine seller, and we were pleased because it felt like our own find. Also, we used the free bike system one day in Cascais and loved it. Thanks you for all your help. We would definitely go back to Portugal. Will and Tessa, Philadelphia

I just wanted to thank you for planning our fabulous trip to Switzerland!  We had such a great time.  Saw so many incredible things.  Ate delicious food.  Met such gracious and friendly people.  Stayed in beautiful hotels.  And the weather…. after a couple days of rain (which didn’t stop my site-seeing!), the sun came out and the temperatures were quite mild. Every bit of our trip was perfect.  Thank you so much. Donna, Elmira, NY

The Collingham in London was as great as you said it would be. I am so glad that we stayed there. The location was perfect, it was a new area for us to explore and the apartment was clean and roomy. There was a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates waiting in our room when we first checked in, so first class service. Definitely would stay there again. Colin really enjoyedhis home in London. We also enjoyed the hotel in Paris….I also don’t remember the French people.being as friendly as they were this time. Many of the waiters were happy to help us in English when we told them we didn’t speak French.very well. So, all in all, a great time. We were also very grateful for the advanced Paddington Express tickets (what a great way to get into the city. Clean and fast.)  and the metro/tube passes. Particularly in France, where we’re not very proficient in French. Made it very efficient and easy. And we really enjoyed the Ceremony of the Keys. Anytime a friend mentions taking a trip, I tell them that we have an excellent travel agent that I highly recommend. Not sure where our next adventure will take us. But you will always get our business. Thanks again. Dotti, Richard and Colin, Virginia

Our [River Cruise] trip through Europe was magical.  The cruise manager was marvelous and arranged the most interesting excursions.  The most memorable one for me was in Nuremberg where I visited the Palace of Justice where my father worked during the Trials. Other highlights included Melk Abbey, the cathedral in Cologne, a tour of a winery in Durnstein, and of course the beautiful cities of Vienna and Budapest – the night illumination cruise on the Danube in Budapest is incredible.  We were impressed with the way cities and towns have preserved or reconstructed much of their architectural history that survived the wars and value it so highly while at the same time integrating important modern aspects of life such as transportation and communications.  There is so much to see and do that we hope to return to take in more detail in some of the places we visited. We had great weather for the first full week, a bit of rain in between, and finishing with more warm sunny days – pretty much perfect. The ship was beautiful with comfortable cabins, wonderful food and wine, and great entertainment.  We spent quality time up on the sun deck as we cruised past beautiful castles on the Rhine.  Our shipmates were marvelous – representing countries from allover the world – New Zealand, Argentina, Turkey, Canada, Australia – made some wonderful new friends enroute.  It was indeed a memorable trip.  Thank you so much for arranging our journey.  It could not have gone more smoothly for us.  We look forward to doing another river cruise with AMA – maybe the Spain/France tour? It was such a treat to unpack once and be able to go so many places!  We will be back in touch when thinking of our next adventure.  Thanks again for all your help! Margaret and David, Nantucket

The trip {Silversea Cruise in the Caribbean} was great!—exceeded our expectations–food and service were first rate–even the air travel went smoothly (except one overweight bag) We would certainly  travel with Silversea again. Thanks for your help—David & Marilyn, Rochester, NY

Just wanted to tell you thank you for helping us to plan a wonderful itinerary while in Spain.  We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip and the excursions.  Sagrada Familia was amazing as well as the many other excursions.  We had a ball seeing our daughter and had plenty of time to do things on our own too.  I also wanted you to know that, as an added bonus, our Westin Hotel room overlooked the parade of Viernes Santo of Semana Santa.  I think we had one of the best vantage points in the city.  So . . . thank you so much for a wonderful trip. Sincerely, Tamara , Katy, TX

Hi, I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time in Bath and London. I think we much preferred the rural areas like Chawton and Salisbury and Bath but wouldn`t have missed London for anything. We had no difficulties thanks to your incredible instructions and pre- arrangements. thank you so much for “guiding ” us through an incredible holiday. Mike, Susan & Grant, Muskogee, Oklahoma

(from a happy camper on board Silversea’s Silver Wind in the Mediterranean) You are the best Travel agent ever !!!!!!! This is unbelievable. Want anything from italy? Ok. We’re being nice, quiet and polite. They all, and I mean ALL know our names. Waiters, bartenders, staff. Now how cool is that. Patrick and Peggy, Bridgeport Connecticut

Once again, you’ve helped us plan a wonderful trip (to Lucerne, Switzerland). We loved the hotel and location. They were very nice and we had no problems at all. They had a nice crib and linens for Lucy waiting in the room when we got there. We even ended up using a babysitter from the hotel and having a marvelous meal in the restaurant at the hotel. We did the trip to Mt. Pilatus and had a wonderful time. It was just what we were hoping for. Thanks so much for your advice and assistance! Caren, Ryan and Lucy, Shrewsbury, Massachusetts

Thank you again for arranging such a great trip [to Italy]! There was absolutely no problem with picking up the rental car or our arrangements in Tuscany. The man who picked us up at the airport in Rome was also very pleasant (even though he had to wait almost an hour because it took forever for our baggage to get put on the belt). We loved Casale Pozzuolo. Anna was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and the place was beautiful and spotless. Our only disappointment was that the pool didn’t have a shallow end, and our son couldn’t stand in it (he’s not really a swimmer), but we worked around it and still enjoyed the pool during the heat of the day. It seemed our only problem was finding our way to the airport on our departure date! Also, really appreciated you getting back to us while we were in Rome regarding or changed flight. We were a bit nervous about just “showing up” at the airport without a new ticket or paperwork. I’m not sure what we will be doing next year for our summer holiday, but we will definitely let you know if we take another European adventure! … Dotti, Richard and Colin, Delaplane, Virginia

Thank you for the warm wishes. We had an outstanding honeymoon and we give you enormous credit for helping us make that possible. The places that you picked were awesome and we really had a great Again, thank you for all of your help. We think very highly of you and will recommend you to everyone we know planning trips. We certainly hope to use your services in the not to distant future!time.  Lena and Michael, Florida

What a trip!  I had a wonderful time….I love England.  Only hitch was the Information Center in Bath.  But things worked out OK in the end.   Thank you so much for the lovely wine when we arrived at the Rubens in London.  We really enjoyed it.  The service at the Rubens Hotel was amazing as were the breakfasts.  It is now my favorite hotel anywhere.  When my head stops spinning I will write more.  Thanks for everything you did to make sure our trip was the best!  Fondly, Sue and Kathy, from Georgia and Oklahoma

We just returned from our trip to Ireland and Scotland.  They are both beautiful countries.  ….. All arrangements were just as planned for the hotels, the car rental, the tour guides, the day trips, the airlines, and the transportation.  There were no glitches.  Everything went just as planned.  The hotels were wonderful.  Aghadoe Hts and the Carton House in Ireland and The Bonham in Scotland were all excellent and did uphold the 5-star rating that they were given.  Having breakfast included at each hotel really did help with our trip and did get us off to a good start for each of our day trips. Thank you for doing a spectacular job planning and making all arrangements with all of the wonderful people and places.  You did a fantastic job and you made our trip a wonderful experience. Thank you! Robin, Walton Hills, OH

We had a wonderful trip [to Costa Rica]. Everything went very well. We were especially pleased with our driver and guide. They were both really into the wildlife – spotting and stopping for everyone to see. The weather was excellent and it was a big plus that all the places we stopped took American money. Actually, they preferred it. It was just what we had it mind. Thanks again for your help. We’ll be in touch for the next trip! Sheila and Greg, Lewiston, NY

We are back from a wonderful trip [to Prague and Krakow]. My only regret was that we didn’t brush up on our history before going on the trip. One of the many highlights of the trip was dining in the Wierzynek Restaurant in Krakow established in 1364. Wow. … The salt mines were unbelievable – we got our exercise going down several hundred stairs. I had no idea of the role of the Jewish quarter in the city’s history. Prague was a surprise – very Westernized. We shopped and shopped. One of our two best experiences there was a beer hall that our daughter took us to where we all sang and drank (not pop either). The other nice experience was the day before we left. It was the tour of the Nelahozeves Chateau. The Chateau has artwork worth millions of dollars and possibly close to a billion dollars. What made this tour especially nice is that Susan and I were in a private car with a driver and a tour guide. When we got to the Chateau, we were lucky to get an individual tour of the Chateau by a guide. The Hotel Mucha was a very nice hotel and we liked the fact that it was a bit away from the city Centre but very near the Metro and trams. Our most negative experience involved the Czech Air desk at JFK. When we went to check in, Susan had her seat, but I was told that I did not have an assigned seat! It was explained that we would have to sit away from one another because there were no two adjacent seats available. I complained to no avail until I dug out the itinerary showing our original seat assignments. The rep then excused himself and came back ten minutes later and remarkably had found two adjacent seats and apologized. I suspect that had I not had the itinerary with the seat assignments, we may have been out of luck. … All in all, had Keely not been in Prague, we may have spent all of our time in Krakow – this city is an unspoiled gem! Thank you for all your help Trisha!! “Dan and Susan, Pittsford, NY”

Hi Trisha, Got our bags tonight! Whew! Now we can go back to reliving the trip (to Italy) and drooling over what a pleasure it was. People ask me what was my favorite part, and I say there was only one–but it lasted for 3 straight weeks! More for Christy–she comes back tomorrow. Thanks for all your guidance and the care with which you crafted it. Let’s keep in touch. “Stewart and Barbara, Webster, NY”

I’ve been meaning to thank you since we got back, but I plunged into work & haven’t looked up until now. The trip was WONDERFUL! Yunnan is amazing, very few Western tourists (though many Chinese). Unlike the rest of China, it’s not too polluted, especially at the higher elevations. Everything on the itinerary was absolutely worth seeing, and the hotels were excellent. The guides were also good, especially our Naxi guide. The food was fantastic, too. The travel service was really helpful–we independently changed a flight to save ourselves from a 5-hr layover in Kunming on the way back to Shanghai, and when I called John from the airport he had a driver there to pick us up in 20 minutes. These guys are really, really good & worth every penny. Thanks for arranging it for us.” Dan and Karin, Cambridge, MA

Thanks for the welcome home and thanks for arranging a wonderful vacation. it was very short but we had a great time. got the car okay in Cancun altho it took about an hour for some reason. the drive was uneventful. the hotel was amazing and I am so glad you suggested the suite–what an awesome room!! Ricardo was off doing a tour with shamans, so we met Enrique and a driver named Roger who were both delightful. enrique was very knowledgable and very nice. we did the sites as laid out in the itinerary. Saturday was an especially great day with stops in Izamal, Chichen, Ilkil cenote and late lunch at Mayaland. we really enjoyed Merida–great city, great people. it was interesting to be in Mexico with its warm, hospitable, easygoing family-oriented people at a time when we are talking about militarizing the border. I was thinking we should import more of their culture. anyway, the trip was amazing. thanks so much. the only improvement would have been a few more days… ah, well. hope to see you and your garden soon,” .……Moira, Pittsford, NY

We returned home yesterday after a magical five week journey to New Zealand. Your arrangements were perfect! We met some lovely people and went on the most beautiful treks and excursions – we learned so much about the country and about New Zealanders. Some of our favorite experiences include the 3 day Abel Tasman Coastal Walk, the Doubtful Sound cruise, and a day long hiking trip over the Tongariro Crossing – thank goodness we could bring our creaking bones back to the beautiful Bayview Chateau that night! The food was outstanding wherever we went and our hosts always had good restaurant suggestions. We savored green lipped mussels, mahi mahi in coconut, and of course famous New Zealand ice cream. We have so many incredible memories of this trip that we vowed to review our photos regularly so we won’t forget a single one. Thank you for all you did to make this a remarkable and unforgettable vacation! ……………Margaret and David, Williamsburg, NY P.S. I forgot to mention the jet boat ride down a river gorge… what a thrill!

We’re home and we had a wonderful trip. We absolutely loved Peru; the country is beautiful, colorful, awesome and the people are irrepressible. I would go back in a second! As usual, the arrangements were excellent. We appreciated being met at each and every airport without fail! …… In short, the trip was terrific. Your arrangements and itinerary were just right. Thank you once again for your help and excellence in preparations.” Chip and Georgia, Pultneyville, NY

Sea Dream is all you said it would be. We loved Athens — the metro, the acropoli, and even the Greek restaurants and markets in Moustaraki (sp.). We have just finsihed Hydra and Myconos and are going back into Myconos for a Greek dinner on our own — we crave simple food. Went to Paradise beach today. The weather has been incredible and the service on this ship is really ridiculous; they even ask if they can clean your sunglasses. Tomorrow is Santorini. Hope all is well. Best, David & Shelley, Raleigh, NC

The honeymoon [in Italy]was wonderful. We both got sick the day after the wedding with flu-like symptoms but there was no better place to relax and recover than Positano. We started to feel better after a couple of days and the rest of the honeymoon was perfect. We went to Ravello, Amalfi, Sorento, Capri, Pompei, Florence, and Vatican City and had a fantastic time. Everything went really smoothly thanks to your planning. We had a little bit of trouble getting to Capri; I think because it was the off season, but we hired a private boat to take us there one day. I can’t thank you enough for helping us have such an amazing honeymoon. Nick Rose, Arlington, VA

Forgive us for being remiss in getting back to you after our recent trip – it is all due to the fact that we are still in a state of euphoria after witnessing first hand the awesome landscapes and culture of Iceland. There were times when we stood in one place and viewed glaciers, volcanoes, the sea, and geothermal vents all at once!! Our drive and hikes provided breathtaking scenes that were greatly enhanced by the spectacular weather we had all week. The accommodations were outstanding and the Icelandic people we met were most gracious and kind (and English speaking!) It was one of our most memorable adventures and I can’t recommend it highly enough to others. It’s a bit of an undiscovered paradise. What a nice touch to visit the Blue Lagoon Spa on our last day – it made “re-entry” very pleasant. We will savor this trip for a long time.” Dave and Margaret, Williamsville, NY

We’re back from our trip, and had just a fantastic time. Your planning and thoughtful itineraries were quite valuable. Your guidance and advice were excellent, and we used your materials every day (even if we did not always do what you suggested!) 🙂 …Again, in closing, we had a Most Wonderful Time, and thank you very much for your assistance in planning our vacation.” Chuck and Dale, Pittsford, NY

Thank you for the welcome home and the travel arrangements which were, once again, excellent. Our cruise was everything we hoped; a wonderful family time together, lots of fun, good food and beautiful scenery. Accommodations coming and going were lovely and our flight arrangements worked out perfectly. Thank you! We will not hesitate to contact you again when we are planning a trip.” Georgia, Pultneyville, NY

Everything went splendidly. The hotels, the food, the sights, were all lovely. Your plans went well and there were no snags at all. We truly appreciate your help and would certainly work with you again. Regards,” Jay and Carney, Brooklyn, NY

Thank you, thank you!!! Our only regret is that we did not contact you first. Our itinerary was right on, perfect, not rushed and the b&bs were excellent.We were able to meet some new friends and will stay in contact with them.The Scots were very friendly, not one bad experience. Edinburgh was wonderful, so much history in your homeland you just can’t see it all.We showed our itinerary to our friends and many of them said you will see more of Scotland than most Scots have seen.The castles were beautiful, we were disappointed that we could not take photographs but understand why they frown upon it.We couldn’t get into Holyrood House three times as Royalty was there, maybe next time? Again, thank you for all your help.” Gloria & Larry, Horseheads, NY

Just got back from a fabulous time at the Chateau du Pallane in France. It was an extraordinary experience with wonderful people. Your travel arrangements went as smooth as silk and Georgia and I had no diffuculty getting there or back. I could fill a book with all of our special experiences but suffice it to say that the trip was one of the best I’ve ever taken. Thank you for all you did to make it a success…….. and especially for suggesting it in the first place!” Margaret, Williamsville, NY

Margaret and I have returned and we had a wonderful time. Thank you VERY much for the recommendation of Tasting Places and for the travel arrangements. Both were superb! The section of France in which this Tasting Places was located was very much off the beaten path and untouched by tourism. There was a beauty and peace about it that was exquisite–I would highly recommend it to anyone! Matthew Harris was also wonderful–he taught and fed us well!” Georgia, Pultneyville, NY

I so wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful trip to Florence! Everything worked out well. The hotel was fine, well situated. The staff was pleasant, congenial, breakfast was excellent. We took the train to Rome and Siena. Had planned to go to Venice, but decided to stay in Florence. All your suggestions, tips were excellent. I still carry the DK Eyewitness Travel guide with me, just to look at the pictures again and see where we had been. We fell in love with Florence. Would go back in a moment! Thank you for all your help and ideas…I can’t thank you enough.” Ginny (and Rachel), Pittsford, NY

We enjoyed a great vacation. Fantastic, amazing holiday. Paris was beautiful and the accommodation location, excellent. The red double deck hop on/off bus was a great way to get orientated to the city, a must for first time visits to Paris. Having the metro and train tickets in advance was very helpful as well, as we would have spent too much time trying to figure everything out. For the most part we followed the itinerary you prepared in France and the arrangements were completed perfectly. The tour in Normandy was fantastic; we really enjoyed the individual you chose to work with as our tour guide – an educational and sobering experience. He was an outstanding tour guide. And then of course Versailles – WOW, that was a whole day of new experiences and unquestionable appreciation for the history and artistry of the past. All in all it was a fantastic trip. Pamela thought the highlight was the soccer game which we managed to get in. Thanks again for all your work, it was a trip worth repeating and an ease to enjoy as it was so well laid out and organized.” Dale, Nancy, Ben and Pamela, Kentville, NS, Canada

We had a truly fantastic honeymoon. We loved Bath – didn’t want to leave – and loved London as well. The accommodations in both places were superb. (All of our rail tickets and passes worked out just fine as well; we enjoyed our rides on the Brit Rail). We took advantage of the tour bus tickets and of the British Heritage passes as much as we could. But I must say we will always be grateful for your arrangements to go the Ceremony of the Keys. It was a truly, truly profound experience and probably the single highlight of the entire trip. We will always remember it. In short, our honeymoon could not have gone better. We even did pretty well on the weather, only short bursts of rain here and there in the second week. Now we have to get back to our normal lives, which hasn’t been so easy. We miss England and look forward to going back again. Thanks again for putting together this trip for us. We had a great, memorable honeymoon and are very glad we found you.” Paul and Emma, New York, NY

Just got back in the office today. We had a great time and we both appreciate all your help in setting up a wonderful trip. We will certainly use you the next time we travel abroad.” Dean and Beth, Orlando, FL

Hola Trisha, Christine and I are back from our trip to Spain. We are so tired, as you can imagine, but I wanted to let you know, that everything went so perfectly! The hotels were great, our transfers from the hotels, the tours, etc. …. This was the most incredible vacation. You did an outstanding job, and we are so happy with everything. Thanks again for planning such a great trip for us, it was fantastic. I will be going back to Madrid and Seville, they are my favorites.Thanks again, Trisha! Fondly, Nance and Christine, East Aurora, NY

First of all I want to thank you, again this year, for setting up a great trip. You always seem to come up with great accomodations and ease of movement around the country. I will never do this without your help. Villa Piccola was great. A very nice place whose desk crew was extremely helpful. The car was perfect and, of course, the fact that we could park it off the street at night in the hotel parking lot made it even better. I am in love with Tuscany. I can’t even begin to describe my feelings when we visited Montepulciano, Montelcino, San Gigmigniano, Volterra, Monteriggione and Lucignano. The feelings I get when I am there are impossible to relate. Again, thank you for all you have done.” Richard, Milford, CT

Well, what can we say? Our trip [to Sorrento] was fantastic!! Everything went so smoothly from the rental car pick-up, to the drive, to the check-in at the hotel … and the hotel, it was perfect! The staff was magnificent – from welcoming us at the desk each day, serving us breakfast, providing us with pool towels and serving us drinks with lunch at the pool and wishing us a pleasant evening at the end of the night. We did stick to our plan of relaxation … that’s for sure. We spent a bit of almost every day by the pool – which was so nice. We saw Pompei on Monday and our only other excursions were the Blue Mini Cruise which was awesome and a trip to Capri. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel in Castel Gondolfoand for our last night and our terrific room overlooking the lake. It was a wonderful surprise. The service, food and view were outstanding. Next to Don Alfonso in Sorrento, dinner there was the best meal we ate on the trip. We wished we had left Sorrento earlier so we could have enjoyed more of that lovely place. Our trip was the best!! Thank you again for your expertise and excellent choices on hotels. We couldn’t have asked for more – except more time! Ciao!!” Kassie and Eric, Arlington, VA

We’re back in the USA safe and sound – with lots of great memories of our fascinating trip to the UK and beyond. Throughout our trip, your advance planning on our behalf was greatly appreciated. We both agree that this was one of our best vacations and made so enjoyable by a travel agent who knew what she was talking about, made precise plans, and brought the whole package together. We will certainly return. Please keep us on your e-mail list.”  Dan and Debbie – Jamestown, NY

Wow what a great trip we had! We can’t believe we’re home already and our wonderful trip is over! For me it was the most perfect vacation I’ve ever had! Thanks so much for your help in putting it all together. The itinerary was easy to follow and allowed us a lot of flexibility to switch things around, which we did a lot. Every day was filled with so many fabulous things to see and places to visit. Your directions, connections, ideas, everything was terrific! Can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much!”  Carol and Dave – Rochester, NY

Thanks for all your help with our Iceland trip. The variety in the “Ring Road” tour was just right for us; waterfalls galore, of course, as well as lava beds, geysers, icebergs, volcanoes, and glaciers. The Hotel Borg location was perfect for us. It was an interesting group. We’d be glad to talk with anyone interested in Iceland.” Carson and Lowrie, Pittsford, New York

We are home safe and sound from our fabulous honeymoon in Italy and we both want to thank you for all your help in making the trip one we will never forget! We were very happy with all the accommodations and your itinerary. The “room with a view” at the Excelsior Palace was an awesome place to awaken every morning! We would not hesitate to have you help us again and will recommend you to our friends. Ciao!”  Anne and Mike – Eden Prairie, Minnesota

We had a wonderful time. We didn’t want to come home! London was great. I can’t get over how it’s laid out. The Tower of London was awesome. All of the UK was great. I want to thank you again for your support and help in lining up this vacation for us. We’ll never forget this trip.”  Gary, Diane and Michael – Chattanooga, Tennessee

Oh, Trisha, we had the most fantastic time!! The itinerary you gave us was like the ‘bible’ and we just referred to it and used it constantly. Loved the London Walks! All our Manor House hosts were great! Thanks again SOO much for making our trip so wonderful! I’ll let you know when I can manage to go again!”  Lesley and Ivy – Warwick, Rhode Island
