Italy Tour Testimonials
“You, Victoria, made the experience special, your enthusiasm and sense of adventure, and your thoughtfulness and attention to detail….also your concern for each of us…..making sure we were OK and taking care of our needs (whatever they may have been)… I have and will continue to recommend the trip to others.”
Joan D., Spring 2014
“I travel solo a lot and avoid organized tours. But this was much more than a tour and the small group made it feel more like family..It is a great value and was much more than I had expected.
“Grazie mille, Victoria. You did a great job putting this all together!”
Margie M., Spring 2015
“Experiencing Italy with Victoria is like winning the lottery. Her meticulous planning, and partnerships with Italian experts indigenous to the regions visited, makes her small group tours so rewarding.”
Paula J-H, Fall 2015 & 2016
“This was my first trip out of the country alone. Victoria provided a trip filled with excitement, organization, fun and safety. Every detail was well thought out and provided for a trip I will never forget and hope to do again.
“Every meal, excursion, cooking class and those with whom Victoria partners with in Italy were glorious. Eccellente e Grazie!”
Linda J., Fall 2016
“It was beyond my wildest expectations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Jan O., Fall 2017

Patricia F., Fall 2017
“I really want to thank you with all my heart for such a wonderful Puglia experience.
