"A vacation of a lifetime!!"

This was more than a tour, it was an adventure that brought new friends, great wine and a love for the family I now have in Italy!

"Absolutely Awesome!"

Took my wife and daughter, joining my sister and a good friend in Soriano. This is our second trip, and it was just as excellent and fun as the first.

Our day on Mt. Etna and the salt flats were my favorite.

"An Awesome Experience"

Plenty of Food, Wine, and Fun! It was as promised, an immersive experience with what turned out to be a great group of people. Our Host Valentina, drivers Roberta and Alex, and the hotel staff!!!!
