How were your accommodations? Great. All 3 hotels had great locations! They were clean, friendly and accommodating.

Did everything go smoothly with your transportation? Yes. Flights were on time, no issues. Took many trains and it was easy and relaxing.

What tours, attractions, or activities did you particularly enjoy? Did day trips on our own to Pisa, Siena and Venice (from Florence). Walked on top of the wall surrounding Pisa, from the leaning tower, walked to the top of bell towers in Siena and Florence. Hiked the gorgeous terrain of Cinque Terra. Visited all 5 villages.

What was your favorite part of the trip? We had never been to Cinque Terre before, so to do it together was great! Views and scenery like no other.

Would you travel with us again? Yes. I had a flawless experience.

Any other questions or comments? Amanda was wonderful!!

3-3Hi Amanda,

I don’t know where to begin on how wonderful this vacation was! Everything you arranged for us was perfect!! Honestly it could not have worked out better!
The hotel in Florence was adorable! Boutique-y, old world. Constantino was a friendly host and very helpful. The location was perfect for the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, open market and the train station (10 minutes!).
All the trains were on time and comfortable. There were no issues at all. Very easy and relaxing.
Day trips were amazing. We did everything we wanted to do.
Cinque Terre was spectacular! Our hotel was awesome! Scandinavian-like, clean lines and minimalistic. The kids room had a huge private terrace! John and I were so jealous but they shared it!! Hiked, swam, shopped and ate and drank!! Repeat! Went to all 5 towns, all beautiful! Amanda, Manarola was our favorite! Glad we didn’t stay in Monterosso, so much more crowded, bigger and the train is above ground and loud. Out of all the villages, we all loved Manarola the most!

Quick visit to Rome but managed to see a lot. Hotel was fancy! Happy it had an elevator!
We had perfect sunny weather the entire time! No long sleeves necessary!

Amanda you did a great job in helping us plan this family vacation! I was overwhelmed doing it on my own and you just stepped in and made it happen, thank you!
We will have these shared memories and experiences to look back on and love every minute!
Can’t thank you enough!
