“Corey, Emma and I want to thank you so much for our perfect 10th anniversary vacation. We all agree it’s the best we’ve ever taken as a family. Every day was perfect – perfect guides, perfect hotels and even perfect weather, not a drop of rain! Azzura and Christian made Tuscany feel like visiting old friends…and Francesco in Sorrento connected us to all the right places and was a continual joy. Christina satisfied all of Corey’s history curiosities and Fiona even made me enjoy Venice this time! We made memories, and I hope friends, that will be with us for a lifetime. Of particular note, thank you for ensuring our hotels had outdoor balconies or rooftop spaces – we so enjoyed relaxing in our private space in the evenings, taking in breathtaking views after a day of touring. It made us feel like locals, and we made many new friends sharing our day’s adventures! I read this week that you should spend money on experiences instead of things because memories bring joy forever – this will certainly be the case for this trip. We can’t wait to go back! Thank you again for making everything so easy – we didn’t spend a moment worried about logistics!”

“I’ve been meaning to contact you after our return from Italy on October 18. Pam and I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Italy. Everything was perfect. All of our drivers were on time, the train connections were good and on time, the hotels you booked for us were fantastic, the tours fascinating, and the guides were excellent. Thank you for all the good work you and your staff did in planning our trip. It far exceeded our expectations. You guys do great work. Thanks again”
John & Pam ~ October 2015
“Barbara and her staff at Italy Source made our 3 week trip to Italy the trip of a lifetime. The private tour guides, the drivers, the museum ticket, the train tickets, the hotels-everything couldn’t have been better. All the logistics of our trip were vastly simplified. The guides and drivers brought great value and were most accommodating. When we had a glitch with our travel plans before we left the USA, Barbara was available over the weekend to rearrange the plans. Uncommon personal service! They have my highest endorsement.”
Jim from Kalamazoo, MI ~ September 2015
“I just wanted to let you know that Frank and I had a fabulous trip to Italy! Everything went seamlessly without incident, and we owe this to you and your team. Thank you very much for taking care of all the details! As I consider myself to be an organized and detailed person (Frank would say I’m neurotically so), all of the information during the planning and the travel packet you sent was much appreciated! I will recommend your company to others and should we plan another trip to Italy (or another location you servie), I will be contacting you. Please relay our appreciation to your team (Rebecca, Mary, Tiffany to name a few) as every interaction whether email or phone, they were courteous and helpful. Thank you again for a memorable trip!”
Gloria ~ October 2015
“We wanted to comment on how pleasant it was dealing with you and how our recent trip worked out, but first here are just a few words that pretty much describe it: WOW; FUN; SEXY, OMG, GREAT – you get the picture. Anyway it really was a pleasure, everything ran like clockwork, your “Tips” were great, and the Hotel rooms were all wonderful. We really appreciated how you were willing and able to customize this trip for us, combining aspects of you Northern Italy and Southern Italy packages to meed our requests. Thanks for the memories.”
Charlie and Nancy ~ September 2015

Brindha ~ August 2015
“Well, we have been home from our trip for 12 days and I just wanted to say thank you to ItalySource for helping us have such a wonderful trip to France. The guided tours in the Burgundy region, to the Normandy beaches and Mont Saint-Michel added so much to the experience. I especially liked the two days that we visited in Burgundy and our guide, Ivan, did an especially good job in touring us around and making the visit so memorable and pleasurable. I hope that you pass along my compliments to his company.
I’m hoping that sometime in the not-to-distant future, we can enlist you to plan a visit to Switzerland and even Italy”
Dave ~ July 2015
“I wanted to send a quick email to let you know the trip arrangements for our Italy and Switzerland trip were amazing and we encountered no travel issues at all. We couldn’t have been more happy with your travel planning assistance and how your staff were all so accommodating with my million last minute questions.
Thanks for helping to make this travel dream come true!!”

“Just wanted to send you a note to tell you how much we appreciate all your efforts in planning our family trip to Italy. We had a wonderful time thanks to your exceptional knowledge and service.

Donna and Rick from Virginia ~ April 2015
“Thank you to the ItalySource staff for helping to create such a fantastic vacation experience for my wife and I! The hotels were all centrally located, well kept and had polite staff. The tours were excellent – especially the Tuscany tour with Azzurra! – and the transfers in Rome and Venice were very helpful. Your staff (Barbara, Rebecca and Tiffany) were courteous, knowledgeable and generally helpful through the entire planning process. Thanks again for helping facilitate such a wonderful experience!”
Jay ~ March 2015
“First and foremost: 5 Stars for the Italy Source team. The trip was fantastic. All the arrangements came off without a hitch. For all our previous trips, we worked mainly with Joe. I’m sure he’d be pleased to know that while he is sorely missed, you, Barbara, and the whole team have carried on the tradition and haven’t missed a step in terms of exquisite customer service. Thank you so much for all you did to make it special for us. I’m sure you’ll hear from us again in a few years.”
Ned and Kate ~ July 2014
“I am writing to thank you for arranging our Italy trip. We had a wonderful time and will remember it always. Thank you so much! Thank you too for helping us as needed during our time there.
We loved both cooking classes – they were both great fun and a wonderful experience. We highly recommend them both. Finally, and as you know, the guides were fantastic — they were incredibly well-informed and really interesting and enjoyable to be with.
All in all, it was an amazing trip. Thank you and everyone at your office for putting so much hard work into making sure we had such a great time! “
Kathryn and David ~ July 2014
“Mark and I just returned from the most fabulous trip we have ever had!!!! I cannot thank you enough for all that you did. Everything went off without a hitch. I have given your name to so many friends and have told them, if you want a hassle-free vacation and all you have to do is “show-up” and all the legwork is already done, then ItalySource is the place to go! It was a wonderful trip and memories to last a lifetime.”
Mark and Leslie ~ June 2014
“Martha and I are still recovering from our ten days in Italy, which was made even better by the arrangements you made. Thanks to you and your staff, we stayed in great hotels, skipped the line at L’Accademia, went on two terrific food tours, and saw the beautiful landscape of Tuscany. We’re so glad our friends (The Walkers) recommended you to us, and we’ll certainly tell others about you.”
Paul and Martha ~ May 2014
“First of all, thank you sincerely for all of your help to make our honeymoon come true. It was truly amazing trip from the beginning to the end. Everything couldn’t go any smoother with all arrangements. It was a plain chance that we found ItalySource but this trip and people we met reminded us what a great travel agent you guys are.
We definitely want to go back to Italy, and when that time comes, we will contact you.”
Mika and Tyler ~ May 2014
“Thank you and your staff for arranging our most enjoyable tour of Roma and Firenze. We love your attention to travel details. The highlight was our day in Tuscany.

Steve and Ellen ~ April 2014
“Got to Florence yesterday….wow…what a great hotel. You sure know how to pick great places to stay. We have been very pleased with all so far. Today was the BEST!!

Susan and John ~ March 2014
“Back from a wonderful trip to the Amalfi Coast. Just want you to know that everything went perfectly. All the transfers and private tours were on schedule. And we loved all 3 inns/hotels. Nice accommodations, locations, breakfast…and all three places were so helpful at the front desk. I am so glad we added a night in Capri…a day trip just wouldn’t do it justice! Can’t wai to plan our next trip!!!”
Margie and Steve ~ November 2013

The small group tours worked well for us. The Colosseum tour was great and getting to see the places not open to the public was an extra treat.

Looking forward to planning another trip soon.
