GRAND TOUR OF ITALY 2014
For an Italian, food is music for the stomach and music is food for the heart!
Here is some feedback from the 2013 tour guests. Thank you to you all and we hope you will join us again.
C.W. writes: "To have Antonio's tour the first tour I have ever been on, I am sure it has spoilt me and no other tour will be better, so I may as well never go on another tour in my life.
It was the personal nature of the tour. Having Antonio with us, showing us his life and passion for good food, I am sure was the difference."
S. H. e-mailed us: "Thanks for a very special trip with very special people."
A. T. writes: "Just a quick word of appreciation for all your hard work in organising the tour so well. You introduced us to many memorable experiences which we would never had had if we had been travelling without you. The hotels, the guides, the visits were all first class and I was so pleased to be introduced to the delights of very fresh mozzarella and very old balsamic vinegar."
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TASTE THE SAME SPECIALITIES AS THE TOUR GUESTS? COME AND VISIT OUR DELI-SALUMERIA, YOU'LL FIND CULATELO, PROSCIUTTO, PARMIGIANO AND MANY OTHER SPECIALITIES IMPORTED STRAIGHTLY FROM ITALY.
