“We trusted Antimo to take us to Puglia and Calabria in 2018 and we couldn't have been happier. He attended beautifully to our needs and took care of every details so that we could sit back and enjoy. He is a blast to travel with I may add.”

Tom and Bev

“First, we heard great things from friends who travelled to Puglia with Antimo. Second, following the social media postings from Antimo's trips made us sign up without any further hesitations. We came back from two of the most memorable weeks in Italy and cannot wait to be back soon.”

Angela and Keith

“Without question the most amazing vacation experience we've ever had. My partner and I are on our third time traveling with Antimo. The connections, the insight, the destinations, and the experiences he is able to put together are simply exceptional. If you want to see Italy, more importantly, if you want to experience Italy in an intimate way, I encourage you to check out Antimo and his passion. Do yourself a favor contact him!”

Kirk and Shawna

“WOW! Seeing Italy accompanied by Antimo and meeting his friends and family was an experience of immeasurable value. The people we met, the food we ate, the sights we saw, the wine we tasted were simply incredible. The joy and happiness we felt and the relationship we built during the trip have no price! Such a transformative trip!!!!”
