I just got back from Umbria, Italy. We were a group of friends celebrating our 50th birthdays.The trip was very well organized with attention to details. I can definitely say it was a trip of a lifetime. We truly experienced Italy in a most authentic way.We got to visit many places that were less touristy and off the beaten path, which was amazing, small family-owned farms, wineries and of course fantastic restaurants that were not full of tourists. So we really got the feel of an Italian experience.The day tours were filled with beautiful sites, we got to experience 2 great festivals as well, one was the flower festival in Spello, which words cannot even begin to describe. The other was a medieval festival where the whole town was transformed to that period of time.
My best friend and I booked the "Gourmet Week in Bordeaux" to celebrate our joint 30th birthdays. Working with Smadar beforehand made for a smooth and easy trip. I have a food intolerance and she was able to communicate this to the guides prior to our departure. We also got a lovely hardcover book prior to our trip with our itinerary and pictures of the areas we'd be visiting and travel tips. We also received a tote which came in handy for transporting the wine we purchased. The accommodations were lovely - the room was spacious and clean (especially the bathroom) and the beds were comfortable. Our room faced the street, so if you plan on sleeping in late, there will be some street noise to contend with; we, however, did not find this to be a problem. The garden is wonderful and quite peaceful after a long day. Myriam, her mother and her two cats were excellent hosts. I highly recommend, if you are going for a holiday, to speak with Myriam or Smadar in advance. The activities - wine tastings, walking tours, food classes, etc. - were all excellent and tailored to our requests. Myriam, as well as the other guides and hosts she worked with were all pleasant and happy to share their knowledge. While the gourmet week is not inexpensive, both my friend and I got much more than we were expecting (and we thought prior to the trip that it was a good deal based on the description) and thought that the trip provided true value. I have recommended this already to friends and colleagues and cannot wait to return!Christine Me and my friends celebrated our 50th birthday in Tuscany. From the moment we contacted Food N Wine Vacations Sam was quick to respond and we felt we are talking to a professional. She also helped us with flights and other plans. If this is your first time, You should take advantage of the free consulting they offer. i can't even start describing the tour: the authentic villa, the welcoming family, the food, the small wineries and the cheese farm in the hills. oh and the cooking class with Christina. All in all it was a trip of a lifetime.Ronnie
We were delighted to meet you as well - so glad your trip coincided with ours. I'm happy to share some feedback - could go on and on and on, but won't do that to you :)
Our entire experience, from first contact with you helping me to decide between Provence or Tuscany, through all of the planning, and then certainly, our amazing trip to Provence, was above and beyond expectations.
Everyone in my family agrees that our trip could not have been better - the personalized itinerary, the excellent accommodations, the foods, wine and beautiful scenery, and certainly, having Claire as our private guide for the week. Time went all too quickly - it was very hard to leave Provence - we would do it all over again without hesitation.
Thank you so much for helping to create very special experiences and memories that will last a lifetime for my family. I look forward to planning a trip to Tuscany with you - we'll be back!Again, thank you, and please pass on our very big thank you to Claire!!
