I love Italy and I want to send you there

Lovely statue in Sorrento, Italy

I LOVE ITALY. I want to tell you about the Amalfi Coast - no. I want to send you to the Amalfi Coast - a stunningly beautiful area of Italy, just south of Rome. This is the Italy in your mind when you picture sidewalk cafe's, ancient cobblestone streets, and impeccably dressed Italians. We can visit a real working olive oil farm and sample the local specialties. We can watch them make mozzarella by hand - twisting and plunging the stretchy white cheese into a big bowl of hot water - and then delight in a traditional caprese salad with hand-picked tomatoes and a perfect balsamic drizzle, and sip on some icy limoncello when we are finished. YUM. Since we're in the area, we need to go to Rome too! Let's hit the Coliseum and get into the Vatican Museum before the crowds. And Gelato! I'm probably going to recommend that you eat gelato every day. If you have more time, let's go to Florence too, the heart of Tuscany. You will love the art, the scenery, the food! The wine! Ok?! Now, let's get out of the hustle and bustle of these big cities and slow down in Cinque Terre... Google it. It's ok, I'll wait. We can hike from one clifftop village to another, or explore by local rail, or how about boat? Yes... and don't forget adorable little Portovenere. Before we head up to Venice (cannot forget Venice!) we must let you experience those cities that make Tuscany the legend it is. Places like Montecatini, Lucca, Siena or San Gimignano. Once we get you to Venice, you'll see the canals by boat (no cars here!) and experience all that Venice has to offer. Not ready to go home? More of a mountains and lakes kind of person? Let's skip through Milan and head to Como or Lake Maggiore for some Italian lakes restoration and relaxation. Let me find the right vacation package for you, based on your time, interest and preferences. I can help.

First Overseas Trip was fabulous because of Melis
From the initial planning stages to the final execution all interactions with Melissa were fabulous. This was my first ever overseas trip. To say I was a little nervous was an understatement and to make me even more nervous I was doing the trip by myself but Melissa made sure everything was taken care of down to the finest detail.

I thought it was going to be a problem when the tour company changed the dates of my tour because the one I originally signed up for did not have enough travelers. Melissa not only sent me the notification to let me know of the change but she also contacted the company who I bought Travel Insurance thru to inform them of the change.

The only thing I had to do was go on my trip and enjoy it. Melissa took care of everything else.

I think my next tour will be a domestic one but I will definitely be needing Melissa's help again.

First Family Trip To Europe!
Melissa was very helpful with planning our family vacation to Europe. We had never visited Europe before, so she was able to provide hotel and flight recommendations to ensure we had a great location and enough time for activities. Melissa was very attentive to our needs as a family and helped make sure we had a great flight (regarding time) and private transportation to and from the airport. I will definitely work with Melissa in the future!

Congenial Professional, Juggling Lots of Detail!!!
Melissa was very enjoyable to work with. She is knowledgeable and professional. She listened very carefully for our wants and needs, and made some fairly complex arrangements to suit us. She was available to meet at our convenience, and kept us totally informed of progress via email, even when she was not in the office. Our 3 week trip covered Edinburgh, Highlands of Scotland, Newcastle/Hartlepool/York/London/Cornwall, England.
