Our trip to Sicily was incomparable—really an amazing time. I cannot thank you enough for your guidance and for all your effort to make the trip a success.  And whatever you did to create perfect weather every single day, keep doing it. It was glorious.

I just wanted to thank you again for an incredible trip. It was such a fantastic opportunity being able to meet with the chefs, the truffle hunters, vintners, and to eat at the vineyards. I look forward to many more future adventures with Authentic Italy travel.

IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!! We all loved it and had a fabulous time. Thank you both for making this happen. Your partners in Puglia and Calabria were a pleasure to work with and planned our days perfectly.
