  • Italy Family Vacation Package

    I apologize for not yet contacting you regarding our tours.. We were in the UK for a time after Italy, however we have now been home in Canada for 2 weeks and I had planned to write a letter as soon as I got home.
    I will fill in your questionnaire as requested but wanted to tell you that your tours were absolutely excellent! The quality of guide, the small group, the attention and interest in the children really made them outstanding and as we only had a week in Rome, really allowed us to fit so much more interest and value into our time! I have already given your contact information to two families.
    I particularly wanted to express how fabulous Lucia and Lauren were as tour guides (Ancient Rome and Vatican respectively). They both were extremely enthusiastic about their subject – passionate would be the word, and they both presented the history in the form of story which really caught the children’s interest (and to be honest the adults too). THE two other families that were with us for Ancient Rome particularly asked me to send a note stating how fantastic Lucia was.
    As you know we made a last minute change to our Pompeii tour reducing the hours and adding a drive to Sorrento. All three families agreed that this combination of Pompeii and Sorrento really made the day – a great balance and contrast and we are so glad we had that opportunity. For future clients I would highly recommend that consultants recommend this combination, as I think it was better than either trip alone. The last minute flexibility was appreciated.
    Also, Alfredo and Nina had told the children that we would be e-mailed the recipes they made so that they could make them again. I have not received those so maybe you could check into that as the children want to get together and do that. Also we said we would send Alfredo and Nina some photos which I understood to send through you. I have not yet even downloaded our photos but wanted to check if this is appropriate and if so will send those on once I have them.
    Again I wanted to express our great satisfaction with our tours and to particularly comment on the excellence of Lucia and Laura. We will definitely pass your contact information to friends going to Rome or Florence!
    With many thanks,

    Lenora Moore

    Thank you for an amazing experience. We are going to be heading back to milan tomorrow. But thanks a lot. We loved meeting Luciana and Elisabetta – so next year we will want to do the same again, plus make sure all our friends in Asia know about your wonderful service.
    Please pass on email on to Luciana, our guide in Rome as we would love to stay in touch with her, especially as she comes to Asia often and we would love to see her when she comes to Asia especially China.
