We are humbled by this review - many thanks. To create unique experiences is what keeps us motivated. Our marketing budget is limited, as most of our money goes into researching new, and updating existing destinations. That is not always easy, therefore many thanks! If...More

We have used Gourmet Destinations in Sicily, outside of Rome, in Portugal. Their guides, the places they select are the best. We plan to use Gourmet Destinations even more as we explore Europe!
