An unforgettable experience. Having traveled to Italy several times before, this boutique style vacation was a favorite of ours. Vicky took care of all the details. The olive picking was my favorite and the scenic trip to the press was really cool. Trips into the various cities/towns were also refreshing. We had time to leisurely wander the shops and enjoy Italian meals, but nothing could match the homemade Italian dinner we helped make at the Falcioni's. The tour felt more like a family gathering than a typical tour.
This trip is a must for anyone interested in having an Italian experience. The people you meet and experiences you have will provide you a lengthy list of memories. I am so glad I was able to locate Vicky and participate in this tour. Going once is not enough. I will have to find reasons to go many times.

It is wonderful to see you are hosting another amazing trip to Italy. I was just looking at the pictures from our 2012 tour and recall your thoughtful coordination, and intention to show an authentic side of Italy.
I really loved the balance of group activities and free exploration time. The relaxed beauty, the great food, opportunity to do some hands-on activities, and the great accommodations were perfect. I was impressed especially with the people you have connected with in Italy who opened their homes, their vans, their restaurants, and their lives with us to make sure we were comfortable and happy.
Most importantly, keeping the group small makes it easy to get around, be nimble and be picked up and dropped at the doorstep of some amazing spots.
This was a trip of a lifetime for mom and I. I can't imagine it ever being topped. It didn't matter that we were inexperienced travelers, you thought of it all, and communicated everything from long before the trip to after we made it home safely.
I will be going back to Italy with you again someday! Feel free to give anyone my contact info if they are considering the trip and have questions.
You are the “True Spirit of Italy”.
You made everything perfect and exciting. We all enjoyed the magical adventures and unique experiences.
Thanks so much for the huge amount of treats you left in our lovely apartment.
