Remarks from last yeast trip to Romagna
Wow! This was a trip of a lifetime.
The coolest part was it is a part of the country that is undiscovered; like a secret! It was like a hidden gem while all the people crammed into Roma we were in the italian countryside enjoying life like the locals! The first most amazing thing was the accomodations; ours was at a local home in the town; with a view over the countryside that rivaled anything you have seen in the brochures! The town and local cuisine that we ate, was amazing. And we could visit one another in our hotels, and just enjoy the cocktail hour from our hotel; then walk to the local restaurant to enjoy some more! The day trips were awesome; and Valere, our guide, was so knowlegeable that it made you want to come back just to pick his brain and be with him. The trip to Ravenna, and Venice and of course, the best cooking school, Casa Artusi alone made it worth the plane ride over the Atlantic! Valere was so attententive to details, and Tamara; well, you could not have a good day without one of her smiles and care for you! I brought my sister, who was handicapped by a stroke, and I have never met a more gracious and accomodating group of people! The food and wine were simply superb; overwhelming in fact compared to the trip I had taken to Napa. The individual attention to detail and the desire to accomodate everyone was the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend going to the lovely, secret, hidden treasure in the northeast region of Italy, and bring your best friends and family,( we brought 3 relatives and they rave about the trip from Florence to Venice to the little towns in the hills...)!

Anita at Bervard Travel Service is amazing! If you are planning a trip, let Anita Scannell handle the details! You tell her where and when and roughly how much, and she handles the rest. Your custom itinerary will be epic!
My trip with her to Italy was first class. We visited some of the most beautiful country side, ate at the most incredible restaurants and drank some of the most delicious wine. My favorite part of this trip was how much we were able to see in such a short period of time and how smoothly each day went. There was no stress! We woke up to an amazing homemade breakfast and boarded a clean, comfortable bus and would head to our destination. My favorite destination was lunch on the Adriatic Sea and dipping my toes in the water. My awe moment!!
Now Anita is working on my itinerary to Africa!! Can't wait to go. So excited!! CPS
I just wanted to send a quick word about our wonderful trip to Emilia Romagna last April. I loved the size of the group for one, we never felt shuffled around as we would have with a large group. Our transportation was the best, our food was amazing and the sites we visited were off the beaten path of most tours. Our villa was perfect. I did like staying in one place and traveling from there each day.
We saw an amazing amount and still had time to see Rome, on our own and Florence and Venice with the group.
I loved the new friends we made and our guides Valere, who was informative and fun. Tamara couldn't have been sweeter or more accommodating.
All in all it was a great time. Thank you, GD, Arizona
