Customer Comments

" Wow, what a wonderful trip. The highlight was the Palio in Siena and I wanted to thank you for all your help. The apartment was perfect, the arrangements were easy and we loved the private driver you provided. Having him consistently throughout the trip made things much easier. I can't imagine a better trip for me and my wife and especially as an introduction to Italy for my two daughters .... so I am sure you'll be hearing from us again! "

D. Crosby - Palio August 2013

" We thoroughly enjoyed our Essence of Carnival experience! Thank you so much for your gracious hosting here in Venice - after spending a few more days here for the rest of Carnevale, we realized that you “do it right” - our whole experience on Friday was the best ever! "

M. Nelson - Venice Carnival February 2013

" Really enjoyed our stay in Siena & also loved the whole experience. I have already suggested a few friends. We had a great city tour with a lovely tour guide.... She was one of the most knowledgeable & patient guides I have met so far. She responded to all the questions my kids asked her, very patiently & with details.."

" Dear Team Palio - Just a quick note to say thanks so much for all your suportive organization... we had a great time, and we couldn't have done it without you. Best wishes for future trips and keep us in touch with any future events or offers that you are organizing. Thanks again!."

J. Lupton - Venice Carnival March 2011

" ..Everything was first class:  the hotels were excellent, well located, good breakfasts...  We were most welcomed, and we appreciated the extra effort by the hotel staffs.  Our walking tour guides were very personable, knowledgable, and very entertaining.  They had tips and suggestions for the next few days on our own.  The highlights we will remember the most were the operas in the historic Roman amphitheatre in Verona....the staging of Aida was spectacular! "

N. Branch - Opera Tour August 2011

" I want to thank you for arranging one of the most memorable trips we have experienced. We thoroughly enjoyed it... Italy is one of those countries that has so much to offer, and I am sure we will visit again in the future. We especially appreciate that you personally took us touring the Tuscan countryside... Thank you very very much."

T. Chang - Opera Tour / Tuscan Tour July 2010

" Thank you ... The entire vacation was wonderful, but without question, our favorite experience was the Palio Tour. We felt fortunate to have been invited to the Contrada dinner, and thrilled when our Contrada (Selva) won the Palio. The best part were our grandstand seats. From our location I could see the entire race and especially the finish which ended right in front of us... I commend you on the organization and activities that you arranged on this tour. Without question, I would strongly recommend the tour. Good luck in August!."

R. DeForno - Palio July 2010

" We just returned from your Opera tour ....we wanted to say thank you for a job well done! Everything worked just as you said it would. The accommodations were excellent. My wife and I will certainly recommend your services."

L.S. MacDonald - Opera Tour August 2009

" You have it set up in such a way that it is easy to function on one's own and be comfortable doing so. If you need anyone to verify how wonderful your Palio package is, you can give them my email address."
