“Dear Victoria,
Again, many thanks for all your hard work which created such a lovely memory for us.
You do it with panache and grace and passion – making the trip such an easy pleasure.
Always, Pat”

“This is only the second organized tour/ trip I have been on and certainly the best. Victoria really puts her heart and soul into making day filled with a variety of interesting excursions… I came away from this trip with a feeling of being totally immersed in the Italian way of life.
I loved that this group of people felt more like long time friends than a group of tourists traveling together for the first time. Victoria made it easy by connecting everyone weeks before the trip… When we met for the first time it felt very natural and easy. I will definitely be looking to travel with Victoria again…”
Cathleen J.

“Everybody that we came in contact with made the trip special!!  It was true to authentic, off the beaten path, a real feel for Italy !! Tradition and history!! The joy felt is hard to put into words or the Beauty into a picture. I would not change a thing!! You are simply amazing !!!! “
Yvette O.

“I have been traveling to Italy since 1980.  I’ve been to most regions of the country including many of the islands and Sicily.   But this was my first venture to the Puglia region. And it won’t be my last! I fell in love with the region… Of course, the experience would not have been nearly as enjoyable if Victoria and her local partners had not done such an incredible job with the itinerary and attention to every detail.
All I had to do was show up and enjoy the adventure! “
Deborah D.

“As a total evaluation this was a wonderful trip for us. The members of the group you had assembled were all great and fun to be with. The variety of sites and towns we toured, the great transportation and knowledegable tour guides who excelled in the information passed on to us had made this trip a truly memorable event.“
Joe & Sonia W.

 ” (Activities) were all absolutely delightful and informative and something I could never have done on my own. ”

Winetasting in Lecce, Puglia!

Wine tasting together in Lecce, Puglia!

“I am not a ‘tour’ person. I have traveled extensively, both solo and with friends and family, avoiding group excursions. I am so delighted to have found Postcardz from Victoria! She, along with her partners in Puglia, organized the perfect trip: we stayed in a beautiful Masseria in the countryside and a gorgeous hotel in the city of Lecce. The days were organized with a perfect variety of activities from touring historical and artistic sites to cooking and olive picking. Food and wine were delicious and plentiful.
I would not hesitate to join Victoria on another adventure in the future.”
Cheryl G-L.

“…The best thing about going with Victoria is that in fairly non touristy areas such as this, you are well and truly looked after without having to worry about transport, accommodation guided tours etc…
Our days were filled with rich experiences but there was still time on some afternoons to explore on our own or just hang out drinking wine and enjoying the ambience. Last but by no means least was the food! The cooking schools we participated in were wonderful and the restaurants visited were incredible…
If you are thinking of going to Italy with Victoria believe me do not hesitate- just do it, you won’t regret it!”
Paula J-H.

“A trip that will stay with me always. Wonderful food with beautiful people made this a truly unique experience! Victoria was the perfect tour leader.”

Sightseeing & informative guided walks.

“My experience with Victoria’s escape to (Puglia) was way beyond what I imagined…I couldn’t be more pleased with my entire experience and if given the opportunity in the future…, I would definitely do it. Victoria is fun and very approachable, with a great sense of humor. I’ve made great memories that will last a lifetime! “

Exploring the picturesque medieval hill towns along the Adriatic.

“This trip was everything it promised and more.  I have been to Italy twice before but never got the real ‘Italian’ experience (the food, wine, people).  And the value for the price was terrific.  This was a real lifestyle and food odyssey and I loved every minute of it.”
Cheryl K.

“This was a trip of a lifetime for me… Victoria made every aspect of the trip a delight… The quality of food, the excursions, and the warmth of everyone at the Masseria was beyond exception. I would definitely recommend the trip to others.  Now to save money for my next exciting trip with Victoria.”

Enjoying the camaraderie of a small group…

“What a terrific trip you put together for us. Although I have been to Italy many times in the past it was always to the “tourist” areas. Although seeing these areas and revisits were wonderful this trip to Puglia  was so different… Above all I would say that the Value we received for the price we paid was fabulous. I personally would recommend your tour to anyone who wants to experience Italy not just see it!!!”
