Overview
Itinerary
Exclusions & Terms

I decided to go on the Painting in Italy Trip because I had never been to Europe and thought it would be a great opportunity to see a place I had always dreamed of with like-minded people who enjoyed art, history, and nature as much as me.

I would recommend this trip to my friends and colleagues because it is not a rushed trip. There was plenty of time to relax and explore each place and embrace their way of life.

The best thing I liked about the Painting in Italy trip was staying in a place for six days or more to fully experience that area. The accommodation was good and in a great position to access the points of interest nearby.

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the outstanding service and hard work you have put into co=ordinating our trip to New York.

You get a definite "wow" from me.

Your passion for providing a unique experience certainly comes through as well as incorporating my specific interests.

All my questions were answered in a timely manner and you checked in with me frequently to make sure I didn't have any concerns.

I am grateful for all your help. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your business to my friends.
