Our tour of southern Iceland was a trip of a lifetime! Each day was full of breathtaking sights, sounds and scenery unlike any we’ve seen. Erica created a diverse itinerary that ranged from touring waterfalls, glaciers and volcanic craters, to sampling some of the unique culture and cuisine of this magical island nation. She books only the best vendors, including a stellar local guide who used mythology, fables and folklore to bring the history of Iceland to life. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Thanks for everything Erica! SO glad we found you! Just wanted to send a quick note to say everything has been so perfect. We are safely in Venice tonight. We have followed all your suggestions and the tickets and events have all worked out perfectly. No travel challenges or anything. All the restaurants and the events you arranged were perfect: loved the cooking class, the Boboli gardens, the hiking of the steps at the Duomo etc, all of it was awesome. You have been thanked and appreciated many times during this trip.

This is a very special trip. Claudio (Cantine Emera) was a highlight. Puglia is a jewel of a place. Looking back this was an amazing trip. I felt like I visited Erica’s family in Puglia and was welcomed like a member of the family.

Erica, everything was better than I could have asked for or thought possible.

How lucky indeed we have been! I heard the news yesterday and I’m so glad that you organized that wonderful trip to Cub and that I was able to join in.
Good job Erica, very well done! Luciana Aspesi - PA

Dear Erica, we are so glad we joined the trip to Cuba. Cuba is such a mix of beauty and culture as well as sadness. We learned so much. Thank-you for figuring out all the details of the trip, it was very well planned. It was an adventure of a lifetime!
