“Our dream trip to Italy was everything we imagined”


My wife and I just returned from a spectacular, custom-made trip to Italy that was orchestrated and arranged under the guidance of Maria Gabriella.

Thanks to Maria’s expertise and attention to detail, every aspect of our trip was as enjoyable and as comfortable as we had hoped it would be.

Our tour guides were terrific, all of them: Elvira in Florence; Stella in Siena; Alessandro, Gina, and Claudia in Rome; and Francesco in Pompei/Naples. It is impossible to quantify how much each of our private tour guides added to our understanding and appreciation of the art, artists, history, and culture in each of the museums, cities, and sites we visited. Our drivers, all of whom arrived ahead of time for our scheduled pickups, were great, too.

And Maria’s hotel recommendations, the Palazzo Vecchietti in Florence, and the Portrait Rome were perfect and perfectly located. The staff at both hotels were exceptional.

It’s obvious that Maria has worked very hard to identify and partner with the guides, drivers and support staff who took such great care of us. They were all stellar.

My wife and I have been thinking about this trip for several years. Thanks to Maria and her team, our dream trip to Italy was everything we imagined, everything we wanted, and more. Also, Grazie Mille, to you, Wendy.

Thanks so much for connecting us with Maria. We would not have found her without you. Another thoroughly happy Wendy Perrin fan,
