  • Hi Luca,

    I want to start off by saying thank you for making the accommodations, they’ve been lovely. Florence was more than we could imagine, the hotel and staff were exceptional. As was Venice, so far I love Venice more than any city so far.  Thank you very much for helping to change things around for us. The room they moved us to in Rome is sooooo much better. The window lets in fresh air and there’s more space. Roberto, the manager, says hello. He said he is friends with your father and was pleased to help us out. Our day is off to a much better start and I feel so much better. Grazie Mille.

  • I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for coordinating our trip. We had a wonderful time in Sicily – all went well. My aunt did well and really enjoyed herself. Paulo was an absolute gem. Please let Luca know that he was great and so accommodating. He was also very patient. I can’t praise him enough. He is a consummate professional and Luca is very lucky to have him.
    I loved everything about the trip – Sicily was wonderful. You put together a wonderful time for both me and my aunt. I will definitely sing your praises to anyone that needs to take a trip. Hopefully I will be able to travel overseas again where I would definitely be in touch.
    Have a great day.

  • Good day Luca,
    Recently you put together a vacation for my clients Stanley and Katherine  and I would like to thank you so much for making their vacation a very memorable one. I received a call from them and they were so Pleased and excited about how they loved it from start to finish. Your choice in hotels and the transportation provided from one city to the next with the private drivers was such a pleasant experience for them. They said everything was perfect and your drivers so pleasant.

    So once again, Thank you!

  • There are no words to express how wonderful our trip to Sicily was! We are back today in a fog of great memories of the excursions, the food, the weather and our guides. The trip went so smoothly and I want to be able, especially, to write to someone about our driver, Paolo Gallo. He was warm, knowledgeable, funny and really went the extra mile; for, example, one day I needed some cold medication and he stopped at a pharmacy before we got on the road. When we went to my grandfather’s village, he went to the town hall with me as my interpreter. I am sure everyone who has met him in the same capacity felt like we did when we left: we made a dear friend. Also, is it Paolo’s address on the voucher forms you sent me? I know one of our sons wants to send him something. Would it be the ground operator, Lucca, I would write to? Please send me his contact information at your convenience.
    Again, you planned another trip of a lifetime for us. I appreciate so much the work you put into making this a vacation we will never forget. There was not a time where there was a snafu. We wouldn’t have been able to see and experience so much on our own. In addition to Paolo, we enjoyed all the guides we met. Flying Lufthansa was a pleasure; the layovers were just enough time so that we weren’t stressed worrying about making our connections nor felt like we were wasting time hanging around an airport.
    Thank you so much for your help and expertise. I hope we have to occasion to travel again soon. Italian Exclusive Vacations will be who we contact.

  • I wanted to drop you a quick note about our fabulous trip to Italy thanks to you.
    My entire family had a wonderful time during our visit to Sicily and I want to commend you on choosing the Hotel Villa Diodoro in Taormina for us. The setting was spectacular, the accommodations terrific and their staff just couldn’t be more helpful. I will be sure to recommend it to anyone thinking of traveling to Taormina.
    Once again, thank you for all of your help and look forward to working with you in the future to assist us on our next travel adventure.
