  • A much overdue thank you for all your shepherding during the Smithsonian Journey to Florence and Milan. It was fun to meet you and to travel in your adopted country! The Smithsonian trip was fantastic, great group, excellent guides and wonderful coordinator!  Just remember just around the corner, can also be a short 5 minute walk. Always, Barbara

  • Thank you! You were awesome and we so appreciate the time we had with you. We loved the tasting and had a great time with Paola. She was great. I think we bought half of the store .:)) We will definitely be back with our son and would live to have you show us around more. Good luck to you and we hope to see you soon.

  • I can't tell you how much you add to our visits to Florence. The tour of Radda and the olive oil producing farm at Pornanonino was most enjoyable and very educational... We will never look at olive oil in the same way we have in the past.
