"Our once in a lifetime 40th Anniversary trip to Italy would not have been possible had it not been for Ginger's expertise, care, and detail. She was always responsive and respectful of our many requests and requirements. Her contacts in Rome, Florence and Venice, whether it was the tour guides or the inns, were all first rate. We couldn't have been happier and would recommend working with Ginger for the most perfect trip you will ever plan." Sue and Chuck M.
