A friend and I spent two days in the Venice area and wanted to focus on Prosecco, Venice and Murano. We worked with Chiara to outline our preferences and the specifics of our logistics. She provided excellent feedback, relatively fair prices, and we learned and experienced everything we hoped for. All the guides and service providers were very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend working with Chiara and would do so again if I am in the area.
Chiara, You have made my husband’s and my return to and my sons’ first time in Italy easy, pleasant, exciting and memorable. Your communication has been so quick and efficient, we always understood what was happening and all the accommodations were excellent. I have particularly appreciated your cheerful enthusiasm and energy. Most importantly, it was incredibly reassuring to know we had a trusted contact as we travel so far from home. Thank you so very much! Oh, and also for the lovely gift (I love roses). I’ll be sure to recommend you to all my friends.
We had such a good time with Asolando! Chiara is so kind and gentle, helped us a lot! Making our trip much batter and safe.
Veneto is a special place for our family. We love to be around there. Thank yoy Asolando
We have just returned from an exceptional trip to Venice, Florence and Tuscany which was coordinated by Chiara of this small travel company.
Our trip was tailored and supported by Chiara at our travel company. Everything from accommodation (beautiful and well located hotels), to travel and transfers in Italy, to restaurants and tours were smoothly coordinated.
Chiara was very responsive to our needs and a great communicator. She made sure that we were in good hands and that all of our connections happened seamlessly. We made a number of changes in mid vacation and Chiara helped with and coordinated these courteously.
I would highly recommend Chiara and this travel company for a lovely and hassle free Italian holiday.
I cannot thank you enough for your efforts to ensure an unforgettable weekend for us in Veneto. In a
a charmed lifetime filled with convivial adventures, never have we enjoyed ourselves more. We do not get to see nearly enough of our friends who are now spread around the world, so these moments together are precious. Despite our very full and tight schedule, complex logistics, and changing minds (can we now have a minibus on Sunday with no notice?), you managed all with apparent ease and grace. The weekend was a spectacular success.
Planning an international vacation can be a daunting task. We were so blessed to have been introduced to Asolando and Chiara t.a. From the very first conversation with the travel company, we felt as though she had a very good understanding of what types of experien- ces our family would like to have and the pace at which we would like to move between cities. Her communication and follow up with us were exemplary. She is very thorough and detail-oriented. As she is not only a life-long resident of Italy, as well as, exceptionally well-versed in many of the sites and cities within Italy, she made wonderful suggestions as to where we should visit.
GREAT! We had a really nice time! I’m writing this review as I pack up on my last night in Italy.
I just wanted to say that we had an amazing time! I went with my family and we worked with Chiara to put our itinerary together. We basically gave her loose guidelines on where and when we wanted
to go and she sent us back a pretty great agenda. We worked a little with her on pricing to get it to where we were budgeting and that was it. She was super responsive, enthusiastic, and she never made us feel bad for trying to be cheap with our travels. She also checked in with us every day while we were in Italy. SO GREAT and so nice!
I was very impressed by the level of detail and care that was given to planning our trip. Everyone we worked with while on our trip from the tour guides to the drivers were all so wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. If we ever make it back to Italy we are definitely going to be wor- king with this travel team again.
Our recent trip to Italy was a most memorable experience thanks to Chiara and Asolando staff. She crafted a one of a kind Italian adventure and handled every single detail to perfection for my husband and me. She listened to our wishes and desires while coupling her vast knowledge and experience and prepared a 10-day itinerary that hit all of our requests. Along each step, she provided remarkable client service. Her delightful personality shone through in every exchange leading up to and while on our trip. We felt well-taken care of every single day.
Dear Chiara! Saluti da Brasile! It was really a pleasure to be with you on our journey! Your assistance has been spectacular and very efficient! You and your staff made our trip more peaceful and more enjoyable. All the people of your group are very nice and collaborative. We really hope to do another trip with you again !! Thank you so much for everything!"
Chiara made a beautiful 3 days of touring the Veneto Region. Vespas in the Dolomites, day trip to historical towns of Asolo and Bassano del Grappa and cooking class in a vineyard. She is fabulous! You must book a tour with It-Excellence for this region. From Venice, Verona, Bologna and Treviso. Perfetto!!!"
Thank you so much, our helitour in Tuscany was an incredible experience, the pilots were the best and both vineyards were extremely accommodating. ... You did a great job organising everything from the transportation to the tours. This was a moment we will remember forever. I am traveling now but when u return on Monday I will send pictures. Thank you again for a great time! ... Ciao
I wanted to wish you a happy new year and let you know again how much we enjoyed our tour of the Prosecco region. Everyone is still talking about it and the fabulous meal we had in Asolo! It was also wonderful to see you again. Thank you so much for taking care of us. We hope to see you again in the future. If you ever make it to Texas, please let us know.
Our Italy experience was beyond our expectations. Winery tours, tasting and “lunch in the vineyards.” Thank you very much Chiara and Stefano! We loved our day with you both! I highly recommend!
Thank you for setting this up with “It-Excellence”, what an amazing experience. Chiara was lovely, so friendly and knowledgeable about Valdobbiadene. We highly recommend her and this tour to any of your guests
My husband and I attended one of the beautiful evening organized by “It-Excellence" at the Canova Museum. A dinner in the moonlight with excellent dishes and stimulating conversation and finally a guided tour in the house of Canova and in his atelier, by the light of the candles. A suggestive moment and a well organized event. We recommend it to everyone!
Sympathy, organization and joy of living, combined with an innate ability to recognize and offer the beauties of Italy .... This is Chiara, and so this is “It-Excellence” .. Highly recommended
Amazing Veneto Region! My girlfriend and I have relied on It-Excellence and Asolando to discover the most authentic experiences of the Veneto region. We really enjoyed the Prosecco tour, Chiara was really fantastic. Thanks again 🙂
