The trip brings to light the best of Abruzzo.
Its history, culture and scenery were superb. Luka's enthusiasm and exuberance were infectious.

Great introduction to a lovely Italian Region.
Terrain and local culture varied tremendously from beginning of trip to end, so it was always interesting. Always something new to discover. Very well organized, lots to see and do.

The mountian scenery, the places we stayed and the food were all excellent.
However, what really made this trip truly outstanding were the two guides. They were friendly, bright, knowledgeable, patient & just fun to be with. It was obvious that they really enjoyed their work. I've done a lot of traveling and had some fine guides, but none could top them! I would most definitely enthusiastically recommend this trip.

The hikes were fantastic.
This was my first chance to see Italy with gorgeous scenery and fantastic hikes. Our guides were superb. They found local places to eat rather than tourist places. Our Guide had a good sense of humor and knew everyone, or so it seemed. Accommodation in Decontra Village - excellent. One was out of this world with superb cuisine.

They rate a gold star.
This was the first trip led by two women. They were organized, focused on our safety and well being, provided great lunches and were so knowledgable. I can't say enough about the enthusiam and knowledge of these young women.

Lunches were excellent!
The wine area of the Abruzzo region was a very pleasant surprise. I didn't expect this area to be so beautiful. Our Guide was wonderful! She did everything - driver, chef, guide, etc. (as noted above). Very patient; great sense of humor. Guide did an incredible job preparing them. Lisa P. & Richard M., Brooklyn
Many things at all at the top.
Interesting hikes, different locales, cultural experiences such as the shepherd's hut, wine and cheese tasting, and dinner at the home of local Abruzzo farmhouse, and fantastic cave experience. The quality of the guide, the welcoming nature of the Abruzzo's people were outstanding.

The scenery was amazing.
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to Abruzzo last week. All our group really liked the itinerary and everything went so well. The hotel was exactly right - lovely rooms and Albina was such a gem. The scenery was amazing so the hiking was very enjoyable and we could appreciate the lovely countryside. We had some great food especially at Franko's and our final meal at the coast was excellent. Our guide Albina was the best guide we have ever been with. We were all very impressed with her. She was very knowledgable and a lovely personality as well. Thanks for making it all possible and putting the itinerary together for us.
Best wishes Ali and Steve, UK

Gratefully yours, Robin, Howard, Kirsten, Arlene and Norman, San Diego
It was one of our best trips overall.
The guides were superb and really focused on the group's abilities and individual capability to adjust the trip.
Arlene M., Edinburgh
We would recommend them for any traveling party.
Guide truly cared about our well being and made sure that we were getting the most out of the trip. He was very thoughtful and flexible, adjusting the trip to accommodate people's needs and abilities and the weather.
