Filomena and Kelly,
We had a wonderful trip, thanks to you. As usual, the planning was meticulous and perfect. Our tour guides and drivers were all terrific and the connections were all perfect.
Of course, Giuseppe was the star of the show and we truly felt like we were with family with him. You gave us some great suggestions with the food tour of Trastevere and the cooking class with Cristina.

They were both big hits with all of us. I was particularly impressed with Cristina, who took us shoping at the market, took us into her beautiful home, took us on a walking tour of her neighborhood in Aventino and spent the day cooking and eating with us. She was pleasant, charming and an outstanding chef and she made this an awesome experience.

Amalfi was incredible and the hotel was absolutely gorgeous - great suggestion. We really spent a lot of time exploring Trastevere and that was another side of Rome that we really loved. The hotel in Rome was incredible - beautiful, elegant and comfortable, the breakfasts were amazing and the WiFi worked.
The vacation was a resounding success. We look forward to doing this again next year.
Great job guys
