Postcards From Around The World

Hi Samantha!
As we are finishing out the last day of our trip I thought I would write to you and tell you how absolutely amazing everything was! It truly was a trip of a lifetime that my husband and I will have wonderful lasting memories. Starting with the Montague Hotel in London, we could not have stayed in a more beautiful, quaint, friendly hotel. The food and the staff there was excellent! Going onto the Clontarf castle in Dublin was lovely and we really enjoyed the Waterford for a true castle experience. It had beautiful grounds and a lovely restaurant. The Muckross Park hotel was just beautiful and we loved Killarney. And last but not least.. The Dromoland Castle is exquisite! Such a friendly, accommodating staff, as well as beautiful and classy! Thank you for arranging this amazing trip for us!

Best, Kelly

Spain 2016
I wanted to let you know that we are having a  fantastic time in Spain.  The hotel has been great and yes we made it to the walking tasting tour last night and it was superb!! I would highly recommend your company!


Good Day!

John and I wanted to let you know how our trip to France was.

Overall, it was fantastic!  The rail reservations were perfect and all of the timing for transportation worked out really well!  We were never stressed about catching the next train, etc.

The visit to the winery was lovely. The people were so nice and pleasant; the wine was excellent; and the lunch was absolutely wonderful! Our room in Amboise was beautiful and dinner in the dining room was excellent.  We were able to visit several places on the day that we had to ourselves.  And our tour guide was excellent. Our room in Paris was small but very nice.  We were located in such a great area!  We walked everywhere!

It seemed like our trip went far too quickly!

Thank you for your help and organization.  It made our trip go smoothly and without incident.

Haven’t had a chance to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Greece! Lillium Hotel was by far our favorite. Fantastic staff, beautiful room with magnificent views, balcony, Jacuzzi, etc. The whole trip was just great.
Now it’s on to plan our next adventure. Steve and I are thinking about Spain next year probably around same timeframe.


Italy 2015
​We are back and had a wonderful time!!!   The accommodations kept getting better and better and the cooking class was a highlight!
Thanks for all your planning!

We are back and I just wanted to tell you, we had a great trip! Everything went smoothly and it truly was a dream trip that got a check mark on the bucket list! The Avalon Cruise was exceptional. The service couldn’t have been better and that include the food and such. They did a great job and just as an aside, the beds were superb! What a pleasure to slide open the floor to ceiling doors and just lie on the bed watching the world go by! We took so many pictures. (three cameras …digital still, HD video and iPhone) that I started to worry about memory, I think we got it all in though!

Penny asked me to especially thank-you for suggesting the two night in Zurich. When we arrived on Sunday, we walked the old town and thoroughly enjoyed it. The next day e did the Jungfraujoch tour. The one was clouds and more clouds but still spectacular with an excellent guide. Actually, the clouds played to our advantage because Penny was leary of the heights and with the clouds, she couldn’t see very much and we even went out on the observation deck on the very top.

By the way, the Marriott worked great. The rate as what the quoted you and it included breakfast each morning. But … the real kick was that it was just a five minute walk from the main railway station in Zurich and also a five minute or so walk from the main bus terminal.

Well, theres lot more, but I wanted you to hear right away that we had a great time and we both say “Thank-you”!

Have a great day!


Hi Sam!
Just wanted to write and tell you how much Barb and I loved our trip to France ?? Paris was fantastic and the folks at the Secret Hotel were so helpful and nice and the breakfasts were fabulous. After a busy time in Paris we absolutely loved Amboise and the hotel there was perfection. We loved our room and the food was delicious. We had two great tours and the one you set up for us was perfect. The wine tasting and the lunch couldn’t have been more fun. Thanks again for all your great help. Best wishes.

Fran and Barb


We are back and we had a great time!  Thank you again for everything and we are grateful for your coordination in putting our trip together.

This was a trip that my daughter and I will never forget and cherish for years to come.

Thank you again!

Best Regards, Kathy

I just wanted to thank you for putting together such an incredible trip for us!! We absolutely loved every minute of it, and your perfect planning really MADE the trip!!! The hotel in Florence was just gorgeous! Everyone was so charming and the food was fresh and fabulous! We missed the first part of the Florence tour, but did get to the tour on the David, which was excellent. We absolutely LOVED Tuscany and the beautiful Villa, precious Jho and Elena! The highlight of Tuscany for me was without a doubt was the cooking class with Silvano and Rita! They are two amazing and passionate people!!! Rome was also great! We ended up getting a fabulous golf club tour of Rome. Roberto and Victor took us by golf cart all over the city,through all the narrow back streets, sharing their favorite spots to shop, eat and tour. It was an excellent idea to see Rome by golf cart. If you are interested in this contact let me know.

We really can’t thank you enough for such an amazingly well planned trip!

My best! Pam
