Love To Travel In Italy
Don and I feel that our travel experience with Jack was truly one of a kind. After only a few emails Jack got a feel for what we were hoping to experience in Italy, and what we felt we should see. This was our first trip to Italy, and we hoped to get a feel for the lifestyle, not just go from one tour to another seeing the tourist Italy. Our experience with Jack was intimate, and personal. We were able to meet and visit with so many interesting people. His knowledge of the areas we travelled was fantastic. The food, wine, and company never disappointed. This was an amazing introduction to Italy, and we were grateful that we were spared the cookie cutter Italian experience. We would highly recommend Jack to plan your Italian holiday, wether it be your first trip, or a return. His contacts and resources make for a once in a lifetime experience. D & W, Alberta
Dear Jack,
For a (our) first-time visit to Italy, your 2015 Best of Italy tour fit the bill perfectly. The itinerary was excellent, from the magnificent scenery of the Lake Como area and the pastoral beauty of Tuscany and Umbria with stops in many quaint small towns and villages to the splendors of Venice, Florence and Rome. Accompanied by many fine meals and fine wines, it made for a memorable experience. Your willingness to accommodate the many requests of the small group was also greatly appreciated.

 Best regards,
P & C,
Toronto, Canada



I wanted to send you a thank you and let you know unreservedly that my time in Italy was greatly enhanced and facilitated by the arrangements that Love To Travel in Italy put in place for me. These arrangements worked well logistically, were dependable and reasonably priced. Anyone planing a trip to Italy should enjoy their time and leave the headaches to Jack.  You'll be glad you did.  He knows Italy and he knows what you want, and he consistently delivers good choices and facilities.   Whether flying solo, as I was, or in a group, as many of my friends have, Jack can deliver a memorable and stress free holiday.

Over the last few years, I've made a several Italy trips working with you through Love to Travel and I've always meant to write a thank you note.

I appreciate all the terrific planning, arranging & booking you've done for myself and my friends. All the details have always been correct and handled professionally. When I learned that Love to Travel was hosting a Best Of Italy trip...Lake Como and sounded divine. We signed on with you and then came the most enchanting, spectacular, marvelous trip that we could have ever imagined. Every detail was attended to. Lake Como ~ Day trips on the lake and in the evening the best food & vino I could imagine at special little places that we could never have found on our own.  Tucked away up a twisty winding road to the very tiny village of Perledo. Taking a private launch (with Prosecco & appetizers served by Luca, the captain) to dinner at Locanda dell'Isola on Comacina, an island in Lake Como. Soave ~ staying at Corte dei Soavi, tucked in the vineyards on the hillside (beautiful spot). Wine tasting at local vineyards; dinners at private villas and castles; visiting Verona and magnificent Venice. And, stopping for a glass of vino and a panino at the Enoteca owned by sweet Paola in the walled town of Soave. Marvelous experiences. I had a great time...couldn't have been better in any way...everything was planned and carried out with perfection!

Thank you, Jack..............Ciao! S R - Florida - 2015


This is a message of thanks and appreciation to you and your travel company and is long over due. I had the pleasure of making my first trip to Italy late this summer with my friend to celebrate a big birthday. It was a wonderful trip with you and the small group that you arranged especially for us to travel with. You handled all of the details so smoothly and took excellent care of us, all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. The sights we saw on the side trips you arranged, the restaurants with the fabulous food (the owners we met), the fantastic wine tastings and vineyard tours, and the company could not have been any better. I have such wonderful memories and have taken every opportunity to sing the praises of you and your company. Any one that wants travel with personalized service and good fun will sign up with You and 'Love to Travel'. When I have an opportunity to travel in the future you will be the first person I call.
Thank you so very much for making my trip so enjoyable. Shirley C U.S.A.

Jack & Ted …… What can we say? On this, our 4th trip to Italy, we have come away saying to each other “Now we feel like we have experienced Italy.” Our taste buds thank you for exposing them to such wonderful, regional foods. Our ears thank you for the music we heard in the warm Italian evenings. Our senses were all enhanced through food, art, music and wine. We will be back rest assured. K&H, Vancouver, 2012

Love To Travel in Italy sums it all up. Your love of the culture, food, wine, art, and life in Italy rubbed off of all of us. This group of six ladies thanks you for all you did to make our vacation a most memorable time. We appreciated everything you did, the extra surprises and additions. On this private tour we could stay longer in places we loved. Your ability to “read the guests” is amazing. Our visit and dinner with ” Friends and Family” with the Baron and Baroness was a definite highlight. We know of no one who has had such an experience. Again thank you for a fantastic time. TY, JK, PW, SR, MD & LH

We had a fabulous time at your place in Umbria and in your company. My family all
enjoyed it tremendously. We will definitely recommend you all and try to come and visit again sometime soon. Transfers all went well - Thank you!!! The private tour in Rome was FABULOUS!!! We had John V, he was just wonderful, full of a lot of knowledge. We were so tired by the end, but glad we saw soo much, again thank you! I can't say it enough!!!!
You are Ted were so great with the coffee, wine, beer, fruit, helpful tips, on and on and on!!!!!!
I will definitely keep in touch and I know my father in law and Pat will
be as well, they really enjoyed your company. JD 2012 - USA PA
Jack and Ted:
What more can I say but "mille, mille, grazie" for another fabulous vacation. You never cease to surprise me and always exceed my expectations during our excursions. Whether it's being welcomed into their hearts by your many Italian friends and artists, discovering a new trattoria off the tourist route, dining on scrumptious meals in magnificent gardens, villas or renovated farmhouses, being treated to exceptional wine tastings and fabulous wineries, you consistenly keep pulling rabbits out of your hat (can you imagine if you actually wore a hat?). Remember when we were waiting for a ferry on Lake Como with a hoard of people on a very hot day, and then you saw a friend with his boat, you waved us over and we had a private ride with Luca. Now, that's a typical "Jack" surprise.
I could wax eloquent about so many wonderful times spent with you, from simply sitting in a cafe people watching, sipping cappuccini or nibbling on pizza to soaking in the mineral springs, from visiting quaint, medieval villages with names like Bellano, Montefollonico, Montepulciano, and Pienza to travelling up to the summit in St. Moritz and seeing the Matterhorn in the distance, but that would mean writing a book. What a spectacular vacation with an extraordinary travel manager and I have only hit on a fraction of our adventures. WOW - Let's do it again.

Aloha Ted and Jack:
Wanted to add my thanks for a great trip. One of my best experiences ever. You went out of your way to work with us all, and I know you made the trip for Jim.  Stay in touch. much aloha DT - Toronto
You would not believe where we ended up for supper last night. The waiters sang and told jokes along with a singer and keyboard player. The whole night 20:30/23:00 was one laugh after another. We were the only English speaking people in the place and that made it even better. It was a set menu, the food was awesome. Another fun night and it was only day one. Again, thanks for all your help. Your recomondations are always unique experiences with local Italians.
Take good care, RL. Rome, Italy, September 2011
Hi Jack, H just passed on your Italy offer to friends of ours. It prompted me to zip
you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our Italy time with you last
year. We appreciated your insights, your company and your patience! We had a
great time and hope to find our way back to Italy one of these days.
Hope all is well with you. Cheers, J&H S - posted March 7, 2011, Alberta, Canada
It is difficult to put into words what the experience was like. We had a fabulous time on this 3rd adventure in Italy with you! I think what has become most evident to us as we travel with you Jack - is that you strive to provide a great itinerary - with lots of variation, and yet we had lots of opportunities to choose our own adventures. I think some of the highlights this time were the week at Musella (beautiful spot and friendly hosts), the gondola ride up Monte Baldo and the best hot chocolate in the world, and the wine and food tasting throughout the holiday. The cooking class at Musella was outstanding, Giovanni's in Rome delightful and dinner at the Count's extraordinary! T & S, 2010
We would like to say thank you again for another amazing trip to Italy. People keep asking what the highlight of the trip was, but there were so many, it is impossible to choose one. It was an awesome itinerary Jack, complimented by great food, wine and company. M&K,
Hi Jack. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your Italian trip. Great people, food, wine, scenery, accommodations and of course a great guide and driver.

Thank You! G M
Thank you so much for organizing such a great trip to Italy. We have not been able to drink our usual $10.00 Australian wine with much enthusiasm anymore - wonder why!!!? You are either a very good or very bad influence on us!! Highlights of the trip for us were certainly the fantastic food, wine and company! We had so much fun with the group, which made the evenings, meals, day trips, wine tasting, etc. all the more enjoyable! Loved the cooking class and dinner with the count was exceptional. We loved both accommodations which were first class and comfortable. The day excursions you organized helped us see and experience the best of the regions efficiently and enjoyably. Magic moments come back to me: the acoustic wonder of the arches; riding the escalator up into the hidden underground medieval structures; the cheese maker lifting the cheese out of the vat and placing it into the molds; riding up Mount Baldo into a cloud on the lifts; the sun setting on the olive trees; riding in the back of Paulo's truck to visit the vine-yards; the chocolate gelato; the food at the restaurant the first evening; the mosaics on the floors of the churches; the bell concerts in the morning at Musella; the two glorious gardens we visited; the castles, the ruins, the shops - so many, many wonderful experiences!!! Your experience, expertise and knowledge allowed us to EXPERIENCE ITALY and not just be a visitor. Thank You! S & J
