Traveler's Testimonial

It was everything I'd hoped for - the incredible local color, my fellow travelers and of course Christoph and Giuliana who were friends as much as guides. It really was a one-of-a-kind experience. Merlin H., Italy 2012 Participant

All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
