Our trip to Rome, Tuscany, Florence and Venice was absolutely wonderful. The accommodations Ginger recommended and booked for us were all in great locations and staffed with super people! The two private tours we took in Rome and Venice were the perfect way to get introduced to the cities in a way we could not have done on our own. Ginger took time to talk with us and made recommendations that made this trip a great European experience for our teenage daughters and for ourselves. We definitely recommend her expert services!
