I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a fantastic time we had. From the moment we arrived at the airport, until we left for Florence, we were well taken care of.
I loved the whole experience. I think it must be a bigger challenge with a small group dealing with different personalities / abilities. Marcello really looked after each person individually as well as in a group.
Our days were filled with plenty of activities and the bus allowed for viewing the countryside.The cooking day was great, we went to the boat to pick up the fish with the chef, we learned how to clean and prepare many dishes, and had a beautiful formal lunch service. Really great.
The truffle day was unbelievable, great.
Marcello discussed with us what our hopes were for visiting the town of my mother's grand father. He offered to take us personally. My mother was thrilled of this idea. Marcello took us to the town, we went to the town offices, met with the vice-mayor of the town. We took photos for the newspaper, They gave her a book on the city, and toured us thru the town, to see the church where my Great grandfather was baptized and sang in the choir. They opened the theater for us. Marcello really did his thing for us.
My mother was so happy. Everyone was so emotional. We did everything and more than we could have hoped for.
I can't thank you enough for putting this trip together.
