Ahhh….Venice! Honestly I think it might possibly be the most beautiful place in the world. It’s my third time here, and I’m still in awe of it.
I really do feel an amazing sense of camaraderie with my fellow travelers after a few days of seeing the world together. And what a perfect group! The children all a joy, and the adults gracious, fun, and incredible travel partners. I keep asking myself, “where is that one pain in the rear that I’ve always heard is a mandatory part of any tour group”?
We toured St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums on our third day followed by a festive lunch of antipasto and saltimbocca. The group was getting livelier, and the children had paired off in natural age groups having the time of their lives.
After only one day on my Adventure By Disney tour of Italy I would venture to say there couldn’t be a better choice for family travel. The “Junior Adventurers” were treated like royalty, and Marco, our Italian Adventure Guide, had the children in giggles half the day.
I’ve never been much of a group player. In fact anything even remotely hinting of the word “group” makes me run in exactly the opposite direction: group sports, group therapy, groupons. But the most frightening two words for me are “group tours”.
Glass Slipper Concierge agent and guest blogger Megan Biller has given new meaning to the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas.
For fifteen years the Cirque du Soleil show at Downtown Disney has wowed and wondered all who attend. I’m the first to rave about La Nouba, but enough is enough. How long is this same show in the same spot going to continue? Am I the only one out there who thinks it’s time for a change?
Dec 08 I Take It all Back
Ok, ok, I take it all back. Every gripe and complaint, every attempt to steer my clients away from spending their vacation here, every nasty remark. My latest visit to the tropical paradise know as Disney’s Polynesian Resort changed my mind.
