“Trip to Italy”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Having just returned from my vacation to Italy, I can Now strongly recommend the international travel agency of ‘Tasting Italy,’ having utilized other travel agencies in my earlier travels,

Not having the time to sort through the details of my organized trip to Italy, I essentially wanted someone who knew what they were doing.

In looking back on the entire trip, the 'Tasting Italy' travel agency have Now earned my thanks for a job well done. This what I observed in utilizing their service:

1) Although they had excellent references and appeared to be very knowledgeable, they answered my every request, and put to rest all of my reservations.

2) Noted their attention to details not just in their itinerary, but executing 'the details' once I was in Italy in a very organized manner, without cutting corners.

3) Their professionals put into action everything that was planned, although some minor adjustments were made, it did not diminish the enjoyment of tasting Italy for the first time!

4) With hindsight, what set them apart was their personal touch and in how their people made your feel like you were part of their family.

Luckily no unfortunate incidents occurred. That said, it was very reassuring that their customer service professionals were available 24/7, in the event any problems did evolve.

At the end of the day, We had a terrific vacation, and I hope others get to taste Italy as I did, with Tasting Italy! ;-)

“Celebrating my 50th Birthday in Florence”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

I can't say enough about Valentina and her company Tasting Italy. She is amazing! I was very skeptical as we had never ventured over seas and didn't know what travel company to go with. Well, what can I say other than it was Perfect! I explained what I wanted my trip to be and she created it. Everything from the most romantic day trips to wine vineyards to private cooking classes in the stone cellar of a restaurant with a great chef. Valentia joined us for a dinner one evening, she had arranged, at a family owned restaurant. We enjoined wonderful homemade Lemon cello while listening to local stories from the owners. We truly hated to leave and can't wait to go back!. Thanks again Valentia you are the best! Chris and Shelly, NY

Hello Lizz, thank you for your review.
Good choice!! Florence is plenty of wonderful venues that will surely make the most important day of your life a memorable one.
To give you the best advice, it would be useful to know something more about your upcoming wedding: date, number of guests, style of ceremony and, in general, your expectations.
You are welcome to write me privately, if you wish.
You may find my e-mail address on Tasting italy web site.
talk to you soon!
