Best. Vacation. Ever. Trip to Puglia region of Italy with Natalina and small group….can’t say enough good things about it. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys wonderful travel made easy :)”

Janice Reiner

“Taking the “Taste of Calabria” tour with host Natalina and guide Silvia proved to be one of my best travel decisions. With 13 other guests, we explored this part of southern Italy together, and by the end of the trip I felt I had gained 13 new friends”

Valerie Anderson

“What a great trip to Calabria that far exceeded our already very high expectations. We were treated to an expertly planned introduction to the history, beauty and culinary delights of this lesser travelled region of Italy under the guidance of our hostess, Natalina, and very knowledgeable and fun-loving local guide, Silvia.”
