“Having never been to Italy before, I was a little nervous. Once I arrived, Dante settled my nerves and made me feel like I was a part of his family. What a wonderful guide! Italy itself is a dream…the fountains, museums, statues and of course, the FOOD! I loved all of the hotels, my favorite was the Grand Hotel Minerva in Florence. Thank you for making my dream of seeing Italy come true! I can’t wait to go back!”

“Recently we traveled to Italy on the Northern Continental Tour. Our tour guide, Raffaele Darino, was also exceptional. His knowledge, mixed with his delightful sense of humor made our bus rides from city to city a pleasure. He knew exactly how much information to feed us without boring us with a history lesson. He prepped us well in order to help us navigate the country safely and smoothly.
By the end of the trip his "family" as he referred to us tourists were reciting (not with the same lovely accent of course) what we affectionately called "Raphaelism's". Additionally our bus driver Stefano was exceptional. A wonderful trip thanks to wonderful people.”

My clients Rich and Ellen just returned from their fabulous Eat Pray Love tour and they wanted me to tell you their guide Dante Roversi was amazing. He took care of everyone in the group as if they were the only ones on the tour. He was very informative and knowledgeable and a delight to spend the tour with. They also enjoyed the in-depth tours they took during their post tour extension that you arranged for them. Thank you for all your help. Love it when the client comes home happy!

“I am writing to thank you for the 5-star vacation experience that the Holt family enjoyed over the New Year Holiday season.
Our hotels and their staff were excellent. Motor transfers and drivers were on time and courteous. Our guides were amazing. I felt like I was in one of those few college classes that I will remember forever because the professor made the subject matter "come to life." Train service was "on time". Wish the US had those kind of trains. We had a unexpected treat with our visit to the Tuscan farm ( Tenuta Casanova ). Wow! What a meal! Stefano was a true delight. Did I say the wines were fabulous? I ordered a case. To sum up: I wouldn't have changed a thing. I will be contacting Massari Travel the next time we travel.”
“Where do we begin? We will always remember our "Trip of a Lifetime". This was the greatest time we have ever had traveling and you made our 50th Anniversary something we will remember for the rest of our lives. We must mention our guide, Raffaele D'Arino. .He was more than outstanding. His charm, his knowledge, and his concern for all of our needs was way beyond our expectations.”

The entire tour was a great success and I believe all 30 pilgrims thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Since I left them all in the last day I have received numerous thanks and appreciation for a spiritually uplift
The wine tours were incredible!!!!!!!!! Loved the beautiful scenery in Tuscany
