Hello, Laura - Well, THAT was the trip of a lifetime! I don't have adequate words to tell you what a truly marvelous time we had. And the people you assembled as part of the package . . . . stupendous indeed! Massimo, Chiara, Gennaro, Mamma Agata, Lucia, the family hospitality in Sorrento, and the staff at B & B were all gems.

The itinerary itself, was a great balance of structure, suggestions, and free time to explore the breathtaking surroundings. Great job on your part. Again, my sincere thanks for all your planning and care with our trip. We will remember it always. Cheers! ~ Colleen in Canada
