The personal knowledge you and the travel agencies you work through brought to this trip really made it special. The hotel choices were perfect, especially The Singular where we enjoyed a wonderful violinist playing in the park across the street. The choice of vineyards was also excellent. Their red wines were quite distinctive. And of course, all of the guides and drivers were professional and knowledgeable. Thank you and your whole team for making our trip a memorable experience. It truly did exceed our expectations.”
