This past September, Into The Vineyard arranged Peter and Judy’s 14 day trip through Italy (Assisi, Florence, Venice and Rome). Highlights included a private guided tour of the catacombs of St. Agnes, a full day exploring the Chianti Classico region, and a private boat tour of the canals of Venice, but as Peter and Judy recount, it was the people that made their trip special.

People asked how we traveled 18 days together, never got stressed and came back so relaxed. I explained that having “Into The Vineyard ” plan and arrange everything allowed us to really relax and enjoy what we were experiencing. We were picked up in a new Mercedes and off we went – no worries about getting lost or missing something important. It was the most relaxing vacation we ever had.
You guys did such a great job with arrangements and choices of drivers and guides. Wonderful!
Pete and Judy
