The holiday was fantastic

All the arrangements worked perfectly with car hire, hotels, tours and ideas of where to visit and which restaurants to go to. Siena and Pienza were my favourite places to visit but the Chianti and the hotel was just sheer luxury. We went to the fish restaurant in Sienna twice because it was so good. The scenery was breathtaking everywhere and it was a pleasure to drive from place to place.We must visit Lucca but I would also like to go to Puglia. thank you for organising such a fabulous trip.

Thank you

Hi Rosa,We had a wonderful holiday and everything went so well thank you for all your help and organisation. We thought the chef was great too and the guide in Siena was particularly helpful. It was great to have the restaurant suggestions as booking ahead was very useful with so many tourists around. We would certainly book through you again if we can. Best wishes, Caroline ps.

Diane Hall-Sardinia

Rosa, you did yourself proud! Thank you very muchxxxxx. Bookings and times all perfect. Lovely hotel, really clean, very hardworking, helpful and busy staff. Sardinia is a beautiful island with loots to explore. Buses worked out really well for us, always on time. Did a mix of private and pubblico. Grazie mille, we had a very memorable holiday and we were really sad to leave. Loved the extra time Saturday chilling in Alghero. We experienced some amazing food and service.
