"Thank you for setting up the pre-cruise tours for my clients in Buenos Aires and post- cruise tours in Santiago.  I received a call from them upon arrival with glowing reports.  The meet and greet at the Buenos Aires airport was a warm welcome to Argentina.  They loved the guide and private transfer to their hotel.  I am looking forward to hearing from them about the tour and dining experiences you planned while in Buenos Aires.  They are also excited about the hacienda stay and wine tour in Chile.

This particular booking required you to confirm all arrangements within two business days.  This was no small feat given that it was during the Christmas/ New Year holiday.  I truly appreciate the professional and efficient manner in which Wine Tours of the World confirmed all arrangements.  Working through Chris was great.  I knew all the details would be taken care of and I could trust her recommendations.  She is a jewel!"

Thank you again,

"To Wine Tours of the World,

I want to say thank you for the planning you did for our Argentina Extension from the Antarctic.  Our four days in Buenos Aires were magical.  Your team successfully handled the interests of three generations. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of everything from the history and politics of Argentina (for our oldest member) to where to get sexy sandals (for our youngest).  

It was heaven to wander out from a very hectic baggage claim and be met by a smiling face.  Your guidance to our hotel selection was perfect. The meals that were included had the local flair as well as variety that kept everyone happy. When we were on our own for meals, our guide provided several incredible choices that will be highly recommended by us.  Best of all was the day we went to the river delta and discovered a wonderland, even our "past visitor" did not know it existed.

Thank you again for the attention given to our vacation.  We will request our travel agent book with you for our future travels."

With gratitude,

"Our wine tour to France just could not have been better.  We started out lucky by having great weather making the incredible scenery even more spectacular.  Touring in and around the vineyard filled hills and valleys was such fun.  The people we met were friendly and helpful, each taking time to explain their different wines and methods of production.  We had wonderful accommodations and of course, the food was excellent.   A nicely paced and very relaxing trip.  We tried lots of wines, made many new friends and can't wait to go back!"

"I wanted to thank you for a fantastic vacation to Italy.  Our culinary and wine tour of Tuscany was a very unique and memorable experience.  The cooking lesson and dinner at Fattoria Di Corsignano was a highlight – with our hosts Elena and Mario welcoming us in their home and wine cellar!  The wine tasting excursions to Chianti District opened my mind to the joy of Italian wines.  I also loved walking the cobblestone streets of Siena, discovering wonderful little shops, and small, local Osterias for lunch.  I think of Siena every time I wrap my favorite souvenir scarf around my neck! I can highly recommend this region and tour to my clients."

Thanks again,

"This was one of the most relaxing yet active trips I have taken. I loved strolling along the narrow, flower lined, cobblestone streets of Honfluer. Sitting in an outdoor café, sipping an espresso while watching the shopkeepers open for the day. Roaming the ancient alleys and shops of Rouen. Sipping (yeah right … lol) wine on the deck of the ship as we floated past quaint villages. But for me, the best part was visiting the locales where Van Gogh and Monet created many of their most famous paintings and then seeing the actual paintings in the Musee’ D’Orsay."

"Wine Tours of the World' has definitely got it down pat. Our time
was well spent getting to know a specific area with all the local
culture, history, people, food and wines of the Tuscany region. It
made our first trip to Italy the type of adventure that you want to
do again and again. Thank you"

"Going to Italy has always been a dream of mine, Last year that dream came true. In the fall of 2007 I headed to Tuscany with 11 other food and wine lovers. We cooked dinner at the winemaker’s farmhouse and ended the evening tasting his Chianti Reserve in the cellar. We walked the cobblestone streets of Sienna and Florence admiring the black and white patterned churches and if all that wasn’t enough we ended the trip being wined and dined in a castle. People ask me “was Tuscany everything you thought it would be” I tell them it was every thing I imagined and more."

"Thank you so much for arranging our wine tours - they were spectacular!  It was wonderful to see the small boutique winery (our favorite wine) as well as the others of course.  Lunch at the winery restaurant was one of the best meals we had - the chef even came out and spoke to us, which was a very nice touch.  The personalized service was delightful.  We also managed to go to dinner at two of the restaurants you recommended – both very good meals.  The only sad part is now it is over - we are waiting at the hotel until we leave for the airport to come home - then we will have to go to the wine store to see what Chilean wines make it to Chicago - though we also made sure to get as much internet information as we could - including for the Chilean Wine Club."

Thank you again.
