  • I want to thank you so much for the wonderful trip. Everything was great.

    We all had excellent trip. The guides were informative and personable. The drivers were timely and talkative. The level of attention and detailed questions to make sure this was a trip we would all enjoy were exceptional. My husband loved Ferrari day and now says we should consider getting a Ferrari.

    I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone who asks.

  • Good morning Jennifer and Mara,

    I wish I was reaching out because I was ready to plan my next trip abroad. You and your company did such a great job helping us navigate Rome and Florence with our little ones. Your follow up and follow through was off the charts, so thank you. I raved about your services and wanted to pass your information along.

    Be well! Hope to be in touch in the not too distant future.

  • Thank you for everything. The trips that you have arranged for us have been truly great!

  • Jennifer’s team provided top notch, personalised service throughout our weeklong stay in Rome. The guides that were selected for us were experts in their fields, and they added so much nuance and colour to our personal tours. For example, I have a love for Baroque art and the wonderful guide that they selected for our art tours was a former art history academic who specialised in the Baroque period.Not only was Susanna able to really dig in and educate me more about art from this period, we did a specialised tour on Caravaggio that culminated in visiting an art restoration studio with restorationists who had restored some of the Caravaggios that I had just seen hours before. Being in that studio, up close and personal with the art, was one of the most impactful travel experiences I have ever had- so much so, that I was brought to tears.

    Jennifer’s team went above and beyond during our stay - even going as far as securing a somewhat obscure gift for a work associate to bring back to the US having it sent to our hotel.The restaurant reservations that were made for us did not disappoint, and my husband and I had the most lovely lunch at the chic rooftop restaurant at the Hotel Eden, with unparalleled views and warm and attentive service. I especially appreciated the afternoon text each day, reminding us of our engagements for the next day.

    Everything went off without a hitch. I would not hesitate to use Jennifer Virgilio and the team for future visits to Rome, or to any of the other locations they specialise. I also wanted to thank Wendy and her team for the wonderful WOW moment in Rome! The food tour in Testaccio was so much fun! We loved trying the Trappizzini and I really enjoyed Mastro. Jason loved meeting the owners of Giolitti. Thank you for making our trip special.

  • We traveled to Puglia, the Amalfi Coast and Naples in late July.

    We felt very safe in Italy. Italy required masks indoors, and most places were requiring social distancing and had timed entrances. Jennifer did a great job developing our itinerary, helping us react with flexibility in-country and putting us in the hands of great people on the ground, especially our driver, Luca.

    In Ostuni we visited the Masseria Le Pianelle and had a magnificent time learning and participating in making mozzarella, stracciatella, and burrata. In Lecce we had a private tour with a local docent of the Jewish history museum. Everyone—no matter where we went—said they were so happy to see Americans. Our next stop was Matera, which is magical, and the Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita, which is a hotel of somewhat modernized caves within a UNESCO site. Luca then drove us to Sorrento, where we learned about the ancient craft of wood inlay (Intarsia) and visited one of the oldest crafters of this art form, and on to Positano.

    Our hotel, The Eden Roc, was conveniently located by the stairs that took you down and across the street to the main path to the beach area of Positano. Positano was the busiest place of our trip, and we saw crowds everywhere. It is expensive and full of young, beautiful people. Then it was off to Herculaneum, Pompeii and Naples. Pompeii was a bit busy, but we had the museum at Herculaneum largely to ourselves. We visited a local winery, Casa Setaro, where Jennifer arranged for the owner to invite us to his home for a tasting and lunch. We sampled four of his wines, his olive oil, limoncello, and one of the best meals ever. It was a wonderful trip.

    The itinerary and time at each place was perfect. The guides and drivers were phenomenal. We had a great mix of experiences. Southern Italy is a truly beautiful group of regions, each of which could have been a vacation in itself!

  • Jennifer and her team were great to work with. In the planning stage we worked through several options as to how best to enjoy our 5 1/2 days in Venice & came to an ideal balance between scheduled time and free time.

    Throughout the planning, were touching base; making sure we knew not just what we would be doing but also what we needed to do to meet all requirements of travel as they changed leading up to departure. When we had specific requests they were able to accommodate without difficulty.

    After our arrival, I particularly liked the daily text update from a staff member reviewing what was on the schedule for the next day, a contact phone number for any issues and stating any important updates such as the need for proof of vaccination in order to eat indoors, go to museums etc. which began in Italy midway through our trip. Yes, I had my printed copy as well as access to the digital copy of daily activities but getting that text made it so easy. Who wants to carry around the printed page and a text is easier to access by phone than getting into the itinerary!

    Our guide for touring Venice and our sommelier guide for Valpolicella wineries were knowledgeable as well as engaging to spend time with–both are native Venetians which provided an ideal lens through which to learn about Veneto. Venice is a magical place and having Alvise take us to the expected as well as unexpected and unknown spots was wonderful. Make sure not to miss the best, and funniest, saleswoman in the world at the linen shop on Burano!

    My husband and I had a very stress free trip with all planning aspects having been taken care of by Jennifer and Susanna. Thank you again for recommending a great travel agent to help create a memorable trip–especially in these travailing travel times. I do feel that with appropriate destinations and precautions, travel can be done safely and enjoyably. Venice was delightfully uncrowded, by Venice terms!

  • We felt completely comfortable on this trip. The apartement-style accommodations had a double benefit that they felt more COVID-friendly and also really made us feel like we were living in the city where we were staying. In addition, as others have noted, this is a truly special time to be in Rome and Venice. It was my first time and I am afraid I have been ruined for the future. The crowds just weren’t a factor at any time. We felt like we always had the space to move around freely, visit any location and were comfortable with the mask wearing when we and others were indoors.

    Highlights included: the guides, Roberto and Alvise, really were wonderful. They obviously both love their cities and their work and they made the time with them quite educational and fun. Alvise was particularly engaging. His personality is perfectly suited to being a guide and he loves showing off his hometown of Venice. We learned so much during our orientation tour and got great dinner reservations as well at Osteria di Santa Marina; the Danza tickets were amazing! Jennifer didn’t tell us they were front row!Thanks so much to her for coming through on that request.

    Choreographer Wayne MacGregor was actually sitting right behind my son in the audience too. We really enjoyed the show and the talk afterwards. We also loved the Architecture exhibit at the Arsenale; the various accommodations worked out very well for us. In Rome, the Martius private suites were very well situated and quite comfortable. In Bologna, we were close to Oriana’s (chef for cooking class) apartment and just down the street from her optometrist shop and of course a quick walk to the downtown area. We enjoyed doing a little bit of shopping and cooking while we were there. In fact we took some of the groceries with us to use in Venice. The Venice apartment was beautiful and very comfortable and a nice bit away from the hubbub of the central part of Venice. I would definitely stay there again. And then the Villa Serbelloni’s history and beautiful views made it special as well; Oriana, our chef for the cooking class, took us for a delightful tour of the outdoor markets and then welcomed us into her home for a relaxed, fun and educational afternoon of pasta making.

    Thanks again for your assistance. We really felt like we were in Italy at a special time and Jennifer’s choices helped us take advantage of all it has to offer!

  • Jennifer Virgilio and her associates furnished us with the best imaginable service in Italy, from scheduling private tours for us, to understanding who we are and finding guides who matched and built on our interests.

    Above all, given the unpredictability that the pandemic continues to wreak on openings and closings of monuments and museums, Jennifer and associates were able to “turn on a dime” and give us alternative tours and tickets if something was closed, and they notified us on the morning of a tour that something we had wanted to see had just opened to the public–and with our approval, they immediately secured tickets and tours for us. She/they did this without causing us one bit of stress or worry.

    We were in the hands of professionals who wanted to give us the best experience possible. We did not take advantage of a number of lovely services that Jennifer provides, including chauffer and reservation services, but we look forward to doing so on our next visit to Europe.

  • Jennifer did a great job developing an itinerary, helping us react with flexibility in-country, and putting us in the hands of great people on the ground. We felt very safe in Italy.

    All in all it was a wonderful trip. The itinerary and time at each place was perfect. The guides and drivers were phenomenal. We had a great mix of experiences.

    Southern Italy is a truly beautiful group of regions each that could have been a vacation in itself.

  • A poet once said “…through the trials and tribulations…” My travels were certainly an unforgettable experience that encompassed nearly 2 years of planning and replanning, the tireless efforts of Jennifer and her team must receive the highest commendations. 

    London was amazing as ever. Jennifer was spot-on in recommending the Kensington. It had the best martinis of the entire trip and was a quick walk to the Underground for exploring the city. Although I have visited several times in the past , my travel expert — Hugh — turned out to be a bigger history buff than I. Special access to the Churchill War rooms, a visit to the crypts of St. Paul’s and amazing walks through Blenheim and Chartwell. Hugh knew more than just what was in history and guide books….it was an amazing educational and entertaining experience. Stephen and Antonio kept me apprised of my schedule daily and made sure every detail was confirmed. I am already planning a return to follow in the footsteps of T.E. Lawrence… Hugh, you better start reading up!

    At the back end of the trip, Venice was starting to come alive. I, too have visited Venice before, but the city seemed to be emerging out of its pandemic isolation and tourists were coming back. So was the water! It wouldn’t be Venice if San Marco were not flooded at least once during the week… it did not disappoint. The Baglioni Hotel Luna was perfectly situated at the corner of the Piazza San Marco, right off the Grand Canal and around the corner from Harry’s Bar. Alvise, my artisan tour guide, knew the ins-and-outs of the cathedral, the amazing talents on Murano and introduced me to Maestro Pastor and his wood-carving talents. But Jennifer left me just the right amount of time to wander Venice on my own—it’s the best way to experience the city.

    My thanks to Jennifer, Antonio and Mattia for making these weeks a memorable occasion. See you all next year!

  • Sicily was absolutely fabulous! Our driver and guides were incredible.
    We had a fantastic WOW this afternoon with a really great guide, Freddie.
    We did a food tour of our Paris neighborhood.
    We need to walk it off before dinner! We learned a lot about Paris from Freddie.

    Thanks!

  • We went to a Barolo village and had the chance to visit a Barolo wine cellar for a private tasting and tour…

    We were so very fortunate to be able to experience an impromptu trip to Milan and the Piedmont region in early January 2022 — and we could never have done it without Jennifer.

    First, the trip was initiated and planned in less than three weeks. Jennifer provided excellent advice on how to ensure our trip and how to minimize risk if we found ourselves in the unfortunate circumstance of testing positive for Covid while we were abroad or before travel. Even though we are vaccinated, knowing I had a way back home to my children if we tested positive allowed me to enjoy the trip and not worry.

    The trip itself was glorious. We went to a Barolo village and had the chance to visit a Barolo wine cellar for a private tasting and tour. Our guides in Torino and Milan were excellent, and we relished the opportunity to take in The Last Supper and other masterpieces with no crowds. Like NONE. In Piedmont, the weather was mild and we were able to spend a lot of time outdoors. And our vaccine and booster allowed us to eat in restaurants with other vaccinated people and not put our health in jeopardy. Our private transfers and drivers were professional and masked at all times, and we honestly felt safer on the trip than we do at public places at home.

    We made some wonderful memories and cannot say enough about how this trip abroad gave us a much needed change to start 2022.

  • Hi Jennifer,

    Great hearing from you!

  • Hi Jennifer,

    We truly had an amazing time. The car services worked out perfectly, drivers couldn’t have been nicer and it all made our trip stress-free. We would certainly use Queen of Clubs again! Have a wonderful summer!

  • Jennifer and Chiara planned a terrific trip to Venice for our family of two adults and two older teen age boys. We went in mid June for a week, and wanted to have something structured and locally meaningful to break the occasional randomness of our own explorations. Jennifer had a lot of suggestions when we met online a few months before the trip and we went over them before selecting just a few.

    We had a pizza, bruschetta, and gelato making class with Michele one day for around 3 hours. We got to see his apartment in an area of town we would not have traveled to, and all had a lot of fun. We also had a private tour of the islands with Alvise; we were met at our airbnb apartment by motor boat and went out to Burano and Murano and then slowly through the canals. Alvise knows a ton about the city and was a thoughtful and really terrific guide. Seeing the city from the water was wonderful and gives you a great perch to see the different sites; going out to the lagoon was also really interesting for getting a sense of the geography of the islands. Lastly, Chiara selected a restaurant for us for an anniversary dinner that was fantastic and one I never would have found on my own.

    The inside knowledge the travel planners have is invaluable and can make a trip really unique, plus they take some of the planning out of your hands which can be hugely welcome. We were able to choose just a few things from the long list they offered and they were among the highlights of the trip. One great part about having these different guides is the opportunity to meet local Venetians and ask them lots of questions about the city.

  • Dear Susanna,

    We soon depart Lucca for Provence. A quick thank you for a wonderful set of arrangements. We enjoyed the Villa and have been impressed with the owner maintaining a fabulous old Villa while at the same time offering more modern conveniences. A special thanks to Naike who was always very clear with the day's activities and quickly responsive to any issues or inquiries. Also, we can easily say that Veronica, our guide in Florence, was exceptional.

    Thank you again to you and your fine Italian team. Enjoy the day ahead!

    Best wishes,

  • This is our second time working with Jennifer and her team, and again we had a marvelous time on our vacation in Italy!

    Jennifer and Maria created a wonderful 2-week trip for me and my husband that included transportation, accommodations, private tours, restaurant recommendations/reservations, a rental car, and any last minute changes/requests. Since we have worked with Jennifer before, she understood what we were looking for on our trip and her recommendations on hotels and restaurants were spot on. She also provided us with different tour options so we could decide on what we wanted to partake. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and engaging. We were invited by a family and tasted home-made wine while touring in Oliena, Sardinia. It was such an unplanned but heartwarming experience. People in Sardinia are the most welcoming and friendly people that I have ever met.

    We enjoyed the daily messages from duty managers to remind us our daily activities. Jennifer and Maria were also super responsive when we requested to modify our daily activities, such as adding a water taxi tour around Lake Como and arranging a driver for a day of shopping in Milan. Every request was executed flawlessly. We would work with Jennifer for future trips again and again!

    WendyPerrin.com Reader

  • Jennifer,
     
    Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the trip you put together for us. It was everything we might have hoped for. Susanna and Naike kept us in the loop every step of the way and were so helpful as we made some last-minute adjustments to the schedule. Civita di Bagnoregio was an outstanding change for our last day. You have a first rate operation and a first rate team there. 
     
    Many thanks again,

  • “We planned our trip to Italy to coincide with a friend’s wedding in Ravello and our own 25th wedding anniversary. Jennifer made sure the transfer from Rome’s airport to our hotel in Capri was seamless. Given that this required planning a 2-hour car ride, 45-min ferry, and a taxi up to Anacapri, this was welcome expertise coming off of our long flight from the US!

    In Capri, Jennifer helped select a beautiful hotel and a room with a stunning view of the Mediterranean. Even the porter helping with our luggage shared that it was one of his favorite rooms. For dining, Jennifer chose options that met our desire for terrific Caprese food, wonderful service, and exquisite views. For the most part, we just stuck to sitting out in the sun and going off to dinners in the evening. On one of the days, though, Jennifer chartered us a boat to explore the Amalfi Coast. Our captain and his crew were a perfect fit. We had a fantastic day on the water swimming, sunning, and posing for classic Amalfi photographs.

    We left Capri to make our way to Ravello for the wedding. Jennifer made all of the arrangements, including a stop in the city of Amalfi itself for our favorite meal of the entire trip. We arrived for the wedding well rested, adjusted to the time zone, and ready to party!”

  • Jennifer and her remarkable team once again did an outstanding job of planning our second trip through them, this time to Courmayeur, Italy, and Paris for the 2022-2023 holidays.

    We were a bit late to the game, but they still found us a really impressive set of hotel and ski options, as well as fun opportunities to make the best of both destinations, including New Year’s Eve. This was the year that a big storm hit the Midwest, which meant that it took us three days to reach our destination (and without our bags). Jennifer and her indefatigable team were with us every step of the way, helping us to carve through the interminable airport baggage bureaucracies and working with our hotels and restaurants on changes in itineraries.

    We give Jennifer the highest recommendations - for great planning and for top-notch support on the ground to ensure those plans go as well as possible, regardless of the circumstances.

  • Hi Jennifer,

    Our trip to France and Italy was truly exceptional. Thank you to you and your staff for arranging such a wonderful experience for us, and for managing all of the logistics so professionally. We would highly recommend you and Queen of Clubs to anyone traveling to France and Italy, and will definitely use you again for our next trip to this area.

    Here are a few more details on highlights. All four hotels we stayed at were great, with nice accommodations, delicious breakfasts and professional/attentive staff! The tours were great. Stephane in Normandy was the standout, and we feel honored to have had him as our guide. Tatiana at the Louvre, and Silvia in Florence, were also exceptionally knowledgeable and fun to be with. The bike trip through Chianti was fun and the guide was great!

    Your team did a great job at communications and logistics planning, and everything went without a hitch. We really had no issues or regrets for the trip. 

    Thanks for everything you and your team did to make this trip so incredible!

  • Mattia,

    The trip was fantastic and every experience and the guides you planned for us were absolutely outstanding. Massimo, Max, Leonardo, Flippo and Alvesi all were so professional, organized, very knowledgeable and fun to spend time with.

    My family loved our time in Italy and you all were a big part of making it such a huge success. You delivered exactly what I was hoping for - an interesting and inspiring first trip to Italy for our 'kids'. Not sure when our next trip will be but we'll be sure to call if we are in your cities!

    Thank you again for everything,

    Thank you again!

    Client's Testimonial

  • The Hotel Eden was one of the most incredible hotels we have ever stayed at. We loved every single moment. Our tour guide, Serena, couldn’t have been more wonderful. She was absolutely perfect and charming and full of energy. I would highly recommend her to any clients you have. Giulio the driver we have now is also a gem. The fact that he is from Canada and speaks perfect English is comforting while travelling.

    Thank you so much for securing such amazing people to show us around Rome. We LOVED it and will never forget our first visit.

  • Greta, Jennifer and all,

    Thank you all so much for arranging an amazing trip! Rachel and I had a wonderful time - the selections and services were top notch. You all did an incredible job. 

    Hard to pick just one highlight. Christina was amazing in Venice as was Paolo in Como. Hotels were excellent, I would stay at each of them again. Restaurants, we made some changes last minute and appreciate your help. Harry lain highlights are in Venice, Bacaro Montenapoleone in Milan, and Langosteria bistro Milan.

    Thank you all again. I’ll be sending another email to ask for your help with the November Paris trip.

    All the best,
    Jeff & Rachel

  • Jennifer, Luna, Mattia, Maria, Greta, and Team,
     
     I wanted to send you a note to let you know how grateful we are for your help with our trip. It was an amazing time for me, my wife, and my girls - and most of all, for us together. I am very aware that you had your busiest season ever, plus you have clients spending far more money than we did. But I could never tell from the way you treated us – you took care of us at every stop and were kind and generous with your time and our questions. Thank you very, very much. If you’re ever coming to Colorado, please let me know so we can take you out. The girls and Ishika did very important scientific research: getting at least one gelato a day and scoring all of the different cities on their gelato. Rome and Sam Gimignano won out. I enjoyed the wine in all places, and I ate more pasta and pizza than I should have. It was so generally great that it would be a bit of splitting hairs.
     
    With Gratitude,

  • Hi Barbara and Jennifer,

    I just wanted to thank you and your entire team for another incredible client program!  The clients returned raving about their Italy adventure.   Thank you to everyone (coordinators, drivers, guides, and duty managers) who played such a big role in delivering this memorable experience!
    Your team is the absolute best — I appreciate all of the extra care and attention you provide to our discerning clients!!
    Below is the client's testimonial: 

    "This was our first time traveling to Europe so we felt that we needed help booking the trip along with travel in between our destinations.
    The team took care of all the details and we had the best trip ever! Their attention to detail was more than I expected. All of the accommodations were first-class and very welcoming. We received pleasant surprises at each property which was a nice touch!
    The transportation between hotels was perfect. Someone was waiting to take care of us at every transfer which made life so easy. It will be hard to travel without this in the future.
    The tour guides arranged were the best as well. They were extremely knowledgeable and took great care of us. They cared about their job, which made for a great time together!
     Overall, this was the best trip we have ever taken, and we are so glad we chose you to create this once-in-a-lifetime memorable experience.
    Thank you!!"

  • Hello Mattia,

    I hope you had a nice weekend! The client made it home safely yesterday, and with an easy travel day. Thank you for all of your hard work and patience! I truly appreciate you and the whole team! Here is her feedback:

    "We had a wonderful trip! Thank you so much for all of the hard work planning and please thank Mattia. The Vatican was a unique experience. The guard at the Vatican could not have been nicer. He let us behind ropes, let us touch tapestries and mosaics. We had about 30 min alone in the Sistine. Truly awesome! 

    The standout of the trip was our guide for the Colosseum. Dennis was amazing! He is young, from Rome and an archaeologist. He was so excited to tell us about everything and he was super engaging with the kids, especially the boys. While we walked, he was constantly telling them things. He made every part interesting. He cracked Hampton up a few times with some of the stories. It got very hot in the forum and I really don’t think any of us would have lasted if he hadn’t been so good. Richard always has a lot of questions as does Walker and Dennis could answer all of them. Richard was incredibly impressed and appreciative. At one point I was worried that we were going to be there all day if they kept asking him stuff. Please let Mattia know how much we loved this guide and thank him for me. Highlight of the trip, seriously. You should request him for all your families that go!

    Rocco Forte House was perfect for us! We had a few hours downtime after the Vatican and it was nice to have the space all together. It is definitely self serve so I wouldn’t send families that require much assistance, help with tours, morning coffee etc. The apartment itself was gorgeous and the terrace was unique and special. Great location too! The rooftop restaurant was amazing. My personal favorite night of the trip!"

    It’s so ideal when one gets quick responses and your team (France and Italy) have been so great in getting responses to me quickly and they are so good in relaying information correctly and efficiently to avoid a lot of going back and forth. Saves a lot of time!

    Kudos! It makes all the difference!

    I have 18 trips with Queen of Clubs over May and June. Everyone has been amazing and despite my small freakouts over last-minute details, it's been 100% perfection. 

    Every hotel, every driver, every tour... buttoned up. I'm grateful. I adore everyone I work with in every country. It's an amazing partnership.

  • Hi Kathryn,

    We had such an excellent time on our trip! It was truly spectacular in every way, and we feel very lucky. Thank you for everything you guys did to make this become a reality! All the experiences that we did were top notch. I think our favorite part of the trip was the wine tour in Chianti - and that was mostly because our guide, Gabriele, was so good. We got to spend 8 hours with him, getting to know him personally, and experiencing true Tuscany. And it was a treat that we had him as our guide/translator the next day for our cooking class too. We had a similarly great experience with our boat tour in Como - Federico was excellent!

    Thanks again!

    My clients had an amazing time! Thank you all so much for helping to make this adventure extra memorable. I had a chance to connect with them today and here is specific feedback if helpful for future trips: "Guides everywhere were fantastic! They especially loved their Florence tour guide and hiking guide in Lake Como. Hotels were wonderful. Their absolute favorite was IL Borro. Wished they had more time to just enjoy and explore there. Excursions were great!" They absolutely loved the adventure and their time there!

    I have continued to use Queen of Clubs with my engagements in Paris and Italy. 
    Currently, Jozcef is working on another challenging engagement with repeat customers that we worked with last year.  The clients specifically asked that I use Queen of Clubs again because they had such a pleasurable experience last year.

  • Hi Barbara,
     
    Here is the feedback i received from the clients. A big thanks to you and the team:
     
    "This was by far the most perfect trip we have ever had, all thanks to you! We can’t thank you enough for all of the extra special touches (monogrammed pillow cases at Hotel Eden, upgraded rooms, manager greeting, etc). You truly go above and beyond and we are forever grateful for you and your hospitality! 
     
    Also, Queen of Clubs is beyond incredible. We loved every single one of our guides and drivers. On the last day in Como, there was a landslide blocking access to our hotel from the roads, which we were concerned that it would affect our 7am departure out of Como to catch our flight. At 7pm that evening, I reached out to Queen of Clubs (Luna was our contact) via text to inform them of the landslide and that the driver would not be able to pick us up from the hotel. Despite the late text, Luna replied immediately and in less than an hour, arranged a boat for us to come pick us up to take us to our driver. If it wasn’t for you or Queen of Clubs, we would have missed our flight home, which would have changed the tone of our trip. 
     
    All of the hotels were absolutely incredible- I highly recommend all of them to your future clients. I wish we could say we had a favorite hotel, but all of them were so special in their own way. 
     
    We cannot thank you enough for everything! We will be sending your contact info to all our friends and family for all their travel needs! After working with you, we can confidently say that we will be your clients for life! There is no one we trust more with our travels than you."

  • Dear Naike,
    We wanted to share some of the lovely feedback that the clients shared with us from our post-trip debrief with them:

    Julia was a great guide for Siena! They had expected it to be great, and it exceeded their expectations!
    At Arezzo, a beautiful square where they have a jousting tournament twice a year, where they had an amazing meal! They were blown away, plus Pienza on a day trip - not very touristy, so almost empty!
    Thomas was an outstanding driver, he took them to the Fiat Drive, and to Sienna and San Gimignano. It was very affable, and educational, but he didn't talk so much so that he does not bother them. He knew a lot of history and was extremely interesting! They would have loved to have had him for all their drives!
    Overall, everyone was great about no cologne for their sensitive smell issue!

    They truly had a wonderful time and were impressed by the services provided by your team.  This was a bucket list trip for them that they have wanted to do together for a long time, and we thank you for helping make it full of treasured memories!

    Thank you again for all the hard work you all do!

  • Heather,  

    We knew this trip was going to be great, but it far exceeded our hopes! The itineraries, services and details—both small and large—that you recommended and planned for us were fantastic. Accommodations were A++ (their new room was exceptional). Our guides were all really fantastic, Beatrice in Como, Diego in Switzerland, Lucille in Paris and Christine in Paris. The excursions via boat, funicular, eBike, trains, metro etc all perfect. Same with the French Open experience.  

    Thank you so much for planning our trip! It was really an experience and memory we will cherish.

    I had a lengthy conversation with the client and she raved about the trip – only positive things to say!  Loved each hotel and all of the guided experiences – everything went super smoothly and very pleased with the service, daily reminders/check-ins. 

    They had the most wonderful time and were so very thankful for all of the hard work that went into the trip and really enjoyed each of the hotels! Thanks very much for all of your efforts on this trip – I am so happy they had such a lovely time and memorable trip!

    I had a lovely text message from the clients this morning:  “We had a wonderful time. All of your guides, drivers and hotels were fantastic. We appreciate that every detail was taken care of. Thank you for arranging an amazing vacation.”

    So thanks again for all your hard work. You’ve been amazing.

  • Kevin,
     
    I don’t know if you receive feedback from the itineraries that you plan for clients, but I wanted to share with you the comments of the clients regarding their recent experience visiting Italy:
     
    “We cannot say thank you enough for putting together such an incredible trip for us! We both felt it was the very best vacation we had ever taken.

    Every single transition was seamless. The hotels were gorgeous and the service we received was impeccable. The tour guides were wonderful ambassadors for their areas. Each one was lovely to get to know but especially in Lake Como. She was wonderfully kind and considerate and an absolute joy to spend time with.

    Overall, we didn’t have a single complaint. The trip was delightful from beginning to end. The team from Queen of Clubs were top notch. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
     
    The local knowledge we had from the guides on the excursions and the hotels were what really made the trip, but we just couldn’t believe how seamless all of the transfers were from one place to the next.  Everyone was on time, extremely professional, and very nice. Not having to worry about getting from A to B made the trip so much less stressful for us and we want that same peace of mind while we’re moving around parents, children, and luggage in London/Paris.”
     
    I hope the above put a bit of a smile on your face! They were thrilled with everything!
     
    Thank you for everything in preparing and executing this terrific itinerary for a very special client!

  • Ciao,

    I hope you are having a wonderful day!

    Thank you for the kind words about the clients. They are super fun and my favorite. They loved all of the guides. Your guides complete your fantastic service! Each couple have sent reviews: "Thank you for a TRIP OF A LIFETIME!" and "We have been to Italy 3 times - BY FAR - THIS IS THE BEST TRIP EVER!"
     
    Thank you for making me look like a Rock Star with your fantastic company and guides!

  • Hi Greta!
     
    Thank you so much for this.
     
    I actually just spoke with the client. He said everything was fantastic and that you all did a wonderful job! I understand they had to change the bike tour in Florence because of the rain and instead did a food tour and they loved it. He said you all handled it very smoothly and it turned out great! They also loved Pompeii and the guide there. Thank you so much for such a great job – once again!
     
    Have a wonderful week!

  • All in all, they loved everything that we set up for them.

    Honestly, I couldn’t be happier with your help, and with Queen of Clubs in general. The honeymoon that Andreas helped with in France went off without a hitch, and you have a life long patron in those clients.  I’ve used other services for Italy, and QofC far exceeds on every level, from start to finish.
    Here’s to many more trips ahead!

    There is absolutely no way I could have pulled this off without your help! 

    Dallas, Texas, USA - Travel Designs - Wade Benham

  • Dear Queen of Clubs team,

    Thank you so much for the amazing trip you helped plan for the clients. I had a brief call yesterday with them and they were so happy with everything. They loved Aurora, the guides, the beach club, and more. As mentioned previously, they thought the Belmond was over the top and loved how they invited their kids to go play. They were a big family and everyone left with magical memories thanks to you.

    I appreciate all of the time you and your teams spent making the trip extra special. They will be back, for sure!

    Dallas, Texas, USA - Travel Edge - Caroline Settle

  • Thank you so much for helping plan what was definitely one of our top trips ever. Your attention to detail was enviable. Every restaurant was very considerate when it came to Peter & his nut allergy.

    Thank you. We will definitely be using your agency again & will recommend to anyone who asks.

    Always a pleasure to work with you and your team!

    Thank you Mattia!

    Des Moines, Iowa, USA - Kathleen Stahl Travel - Taylor Brandel

  • Hello, this was an extremely important client for me. the client's full booking included Queen of Clubs Tours and Transfers and Preferred Partner hotels. I had a high level of confidence because Queen of Clubs has come so highly recommended from other advisors but the client's trip needed to be perfect… but is any trip ever really perfect? This one literally was, except for the weather they encountered on their boat trip to Capri, but as you can see below because of the reaction from your team it turned out just great. I couldn’t be more excited to work with you all in the future. Thank you so very much for all you do. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Client's feedback:
     
    "Hi Deana! I wanted to send you a quick message. All I can say is WOW. We are on the plane on the way back right now. Have some time to catch up on my emails and wanted to say a huge thank you! My family was blown away by the entire trip. Every detail was seamless. You seriously have a new client for life. This was a very special trip for my parents (and my kids) and we loved every minute. I can’t thank you enough. We have so many wonderful memories. Even the one slight hiccup with the boat turned into one of the very best days going to Capri - Queen of Clubs in Italy, specifically Maria, was amazing!"

    Florida - King Travel Design - Deana King

  • I have been working with Queen of Clubs for a couple of years now. They never disappoint with their unique experiences and 5-star level of service for all my clients!
    They have planned a group's seamless 50th birthday wine trip through France as well as many cross-country family spring break and summer vacations across France and Rome, all with rave reviews.
    The team is responsive, creative, and knowledgeable with their itinerary planning!

    Wow!
    Jozsef Balazs is amazing. I work with a lot of ‘on the ground’ people and he is a standout!
    Jozsef was there and helping all of us and helped my clients shop on a Sunday evening in Como!
    He has helped them every step of the way.  
    I am so grateful someone as wonderful as Jozsef has been there to help! He is funny, friendly, smart, and he gets things done!
    Honestly, he deserves both a raise and a paid vacation!  
    He is incredible.
    I keep saying that – but it is true!!!

  • Hi Barbara,
    I spoke to the client at length last night and she had rave reviews for her trip and guides, especially Florence and Venice.  She said those guides, especially in Venice, had such positive things to say about Queen of Clubs, that she was convinced we were the right choice for their trip! 
    The guides and the families who provided the cooking lessons were extremely kind and welcoming to the client and her 3 children who LOVED their experience.

  • Hi! I wanted to share this happy client feedback. Thank you for making their first trip to Europe such a success!

    "Good Afternoon Suzanne,

    Thank you for planning our trip of a lifetime. It’s been hard to digest everything, we did so much. The van tour of Paris and the golf cart tour of Rome enabled us to see so much more of the cities than we ever could on our own. The day trip to Cinque Terre was worth every penny - our guide Loredana was fabulous - in fact every guide was wonderful. We enjoyed having lunch with them and learning about their lives. Our Coliseum and Vatican guide - Mara - told me how to make carbonara, which we’re doing our best to make at home. The transfers and airport assistants were key for us first time travelers to Europe. We felt like jet setters when we arrived at our hotel in Venice by boat. I can’t forget the dinner cruise - my daughter said she had the best meal of her life! We wouldn’t change a thing. Amazing experience!"

    Greenville, South Carolina, USA - Thornton Hall Travel - Suzanne Hagins

  • We had the most wonderful time in Italy! It was fantastic!

    Everything was perfect. Absolutely beautiful. Each place was so different it is hard to have a favorite. All of the drivers and guides were so polite and helpful. Some just went over and beyond to make us comfortable or to let us experience Italy in every way possible. The hotels were incredible, absolutely stunning. We enjoyed 10 wonderful days of eating, drinking, relaxing and of course, site seeing.

    Thank you again for organizing a beautiful vacation for us.

    The Drivers and tour guides were amazing. Antonio did a great job with keep us updated the night before our excursions. We even conquered the train with our bags. So many memories, I could go on and on. I'm sitting here smiling as I type this.  

    Let's plan another one! We need to make a memory book while it is all so fresh in our minds.

    I just spoke to my client and she went on and on about QoC in Italy!

    It appears as though everything exceeded her expectations.

  • We loved all our tour guides! They were great! Very interested in making sure we enjoyed our time. The cooking class was awesome! I think this was the kids favorite event.

    Again - thank you. I have already recommended you to others and will most certainly call you for our next trip!!!

    Greenville, South Carolina, USA - Thornton-Hall Travel - Lisa Hall

  • Hi Mara,

    I am just reading this again. You all did a great job. The clients called me the night before they were flying back and told me all about the passports. I am so thankful for you all and the ability to help them. These are the stories I tell clients, the value of a great relationship and someone watching over you while you are in Italy.  

    Wow, thank you!

  • Hi Lisa,

    We arrived home after the most amazing trip we could have ever imagined! We both just want to tell you Thank you and how much we appreciate everything you did to make our anniversary trip so special.
    Every detail was perfect and the gifts you sent were so thoughtful. Each city brought something new and exciting, the hotels were exquisite, each guide was unique, and the experiences were just what we needed!
    We loved Florence and Tuscany the most and we want to move into the Castillo di Casole! Honestly, it made my list of places that I want to put on repeat and I don’t say that very often. Can’t wait for you to plan our next adventure.

    Thank you Thank you Thank you!

    Your teams are amazing. I sing your praises high and low. I know it's been incredibly tough with the surge in demand in travel, but every single one of my clients has had nothing but great things to say upon returning home. Mattia is my HERO. I say it once a week but I don't know what I would do without him. 

    Looking forward to continuing our partnership!

    I received the best feedback today. The clients absolutely loved their time in Florence - the highlight of their visit was the cooking class.

    They were also so grateful for the support when the client wasn't feeling well. The doctor was incredibly helpful and allowed them to get right back to their vacation.

    Thank you for making it such a wonderful experience for them. I look forward to our continued work together.

    As always, you and your team provided exceptional service and experience! We had an incredible time exploring, eating, and of course drinking our way through Val D’Orcia. Our guide was so personalable and knowledgeable, which made our tour truly exceptional and fun! I ordered some wine and can’t wait for it to arrive at my house. Queen of Clubs is first class in every way - thank you for everything! I can’t wait to return to Italy and to use you again and of course will be in touch for future client bookings.

    We learned so much about each place we visited and truly enjoyed the guides who accompanied us.

    Bravo and thank you kindly.

  • My entire family would like to thank you for helping put together the most memorable trip we can imagine. We only wish we were there longer as there is still so much to see.

    Every city we visited was special and different in its own way. Venice was magical, Tuscany was serene, Rome was ancient, yet alive and Positano was heaven, and all of it skillfully delivered by the most knowledgeable and friendly guides that we could ask for. That really made it special.

    Many, many thanks! This is a once in a lifetime experience that 3 generations were able to enjoy together.

Everything was seamless - from the transfers, to the hotels, to the experiences - and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Maria, your country is beautiful and we love its rich history.

    We received feedback from the clients and wanted to take a moment to share it with you:

    "We returned from our vacation last night. It was a great trip. We did a lot of very interesting and fun activities in Rome, Positano, Florence and Chianti. It would be hard to say which ones were best because they were all really good.

    The arrangements you made for us were all very good. The drivers and guides were on time and professional. It truly makes it a more enjoyable experience. Thank you for making sure the details were taken care of by the team!"

  • Thank you for all of your hard work!

    The clients seemed very happy with hotels and tours.

    I am glad they had a good experience and thanks for all of your patience with me with the back and forth with the hotels…you have really educated me on Italy!

  • I connected with the client yesterday and she said the trip was fantastic!

    She was very happy with all of the hotel choices and how smoothly everything went, and liked all of the tours and all of your help with the logistics. I have already received 2 more referrals from her as she’s been speaking to others about how great the trip was.
     
    Thank you, thank you for all of your hard work on this trip and on all of my other upcoming trips!

  • We had the BEST time!

    Having English speaking contacts on the ground that I could contact was amazing. Our ferry back from Capri was cancelled, and Queen of Clubs had booked us a new ferry to a neighbouring city and a private car within minutes!

    We could not have seen or enjoyed our honeymoon half as much without you. The service was truly exceptional… you made every moment magical and smooth! We will certainly share you with family and friends and will be using you on our next trip!

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for going above and beyond and truly making me look like a ROCK STAR! I couldn’t have done it without you and your team.

  • Hi Martina,
     
    Thank you for your email and thank you for all of your help with the clients' trip.  They emailed me yesterday that they had an amazing trip, so thank you for everything you did to make that happen!
      
    In terms of feedback, they loved the Kempinski in Engelberg – said it was spectacular!  She said the hot air ballooning was a major highlight and that the via ferrata would have been too had it not been rained out after 30 minutes. 

    They loved the Zurich tour and she said the chocolate making in Lucerne was another highlight. 

    All in all, it was a great report and she was super happy, so I am too!  Thank you again for all of your patience and help! 

    I look forward to working together again.
     
    Best,

  • Naike and the entire Queen of Clubs team, thank you so much for bringing my clients to the Palazzo Garzoni in Venice and Hotel Fasano in Garda. Both accommodations were LOVED by my clients and you make the transfer from the Venice airport to the apartment seamless. They spoke so highly of the apartment owners in Venice and how they would bring them coffee and just generally help them so much. I love partnering with your team. You are so talented. THANK YOU!

    New York - Fora Travel - Caroline Weilert

  • Thank you so much, Maria. I appreciate your partnership and the great care for my clients!
     
    I received several complimentary messages from my clients during their trip especially related to the Ferrari day which was a dream come true for them.

    They said that all the services were so smooth that they were afraid they were doing something wrong – their travels had never gone so smoothly before!
     
    Thanks again,

  • Hi ladies,

    I just wanted to share the feedback of the clients in Sicily:

    "The trip was great and we totally enjoyed Sicily. It is beautiful and the people were lovely!
    I have to now figure out how to lose the weight I put on having pasta and gelato twice a day! 
    The hotels were fabulous (especially Verdura) and the tours were excellent. I must admit I never understood what a greeter does but now that we experienced the ease of getting through an airport with their assistance I am a convert, and understand how helpful they are when navigating in a foreign country!"

    Thanks so much for organizing a perfect trip and take care!
    Warm regards,

    New York - Pro Travel - Janice Martorano

  • Mara, the clients called me from the plane and, as I said to you on the phone, they are SO grateful to have had Valentina and I appreciate ALL your hard work!!! I don’t know what I’d do without all of you!!!

    I wish you a wonderful holiday!

  • Hi Jennifer,
     
    No, thank you!  We are having so much success with Queen of Clubs!  Our clients have nothing but positive feedback. 
    My partnerships with Chiara in France, Chiara and Daniele in Switzerland, and Susanna in Italy are not only professional, but full of great experiences and their never ending patience!
     
    The WhatsApp group chat with your 24 hours emergency contact is a game changer!
     
    Some clients are easier than others, but the feedback I always receive is that this is their best trip ever!  I could go on and on!
     
    Chiara from France found my client a vintage jewelry store and my client bought the most special 100 year old Van Cleef diamond ring.  The client told me that every day she looks at that ring and thinks about the most perfect trip she had! By the way, the ring is gorgeous! Chiara is the sweetest!
     
    Susanna worked on such a difficult trip for 18 people for the clients.  This was not easy and they are now planning a two week trip for next summer for Italy and either France or Switzerland. Susanna and I do so many trips together since about 40-50 percent of my business is Italy. Love her!
     
    Daniele put together a spectacular Switzerland trip for the client so last minute since my clients changed their minds.  The feedback about all of their special experiences with Queen of Clubs was so special.
     
    We cannot forget your London team who I will be working with for a December family soon!
     
    Your entire team makes us look like rock stars and we look forward to planning lots more trips! 
     
    Warm Regards!

  • Dear Jennifer,

    I am back home in Maine today and I wanted to thank you and your team, specifically, Giulia, for orchestrating the perfect trip for me and my brother - especially when I got the date of arrival wrong! My brother and his 15 year old grandson were absolutely enthralled by every moment of the trip. Every one of the guides was knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. We did get to see the Pope on the 29th as he came very close to our position in St.Peter’s at the end of the Mass, which standing alone was a spectacle of great beauty and was very important to my brother. The restaurant suggestions were relied upon and were perfect. The trip to Assisi, the guide assigned to us and my brother’s ability to have private time with a Francsiscan Monk was another highlight. The Florence excursion was also perfect in every way. 

    There was not a single glitch. It all ran like a finely tuned violin - something, Jennifer, that your company does so very well. You are second to none.

    Thank you again,

    Diane

    New York, USA - WendyPerrin.com Reader

  • Jennifer and her team came through brilliantly. I have been singing her praises to everyone who asks about the trip.

    The guides were even better than I had expected. Each evening I received a text confirming the next day's specifics such as time and place which completely cased my logistical worries. There seemed to be many people behind the scenes taking care of us.

    In all, I would not hesitate for a second top recommend Jennifer's team.

    New York, USA - WendyPerrin.com Reader

  • Jennifer,

    The entire trip, Paris and Rome, worked out beautifully. Your guides were superb in engaging the Children and enlightening the adults at the same time.

    All went very very well!

  • Hi Barbara,

    Thank you for providing the below! I spoke with the client the other day and she had nothing but amazing feedback.

    She thought Queen of Clubs did an excellent job and was worth the price.

    Thank you and your team for doing such a great job! 

    New York, USA - In the Know Experiences - Patty Ehinger

  • Mattia ,

    So happy you are back.

    The ladies did an awesome job and THANK YOU for being in contact with the clients. I knew that their party was rather large and if there were changes, the client speaking to guys directly was the best way instead of being the middle man and possibly it taking longer. The clients were beyond happy the entire week with the services through Queen of Clubs and for that I thank you all for the hard work and prompt transfers, answers, and everything in between. You all are ROCKSTARS!

    I absolutely love working with you guys knowing that everything is done professionally and promptly.

    Thank you 100 times!

    Thank you again, you were all delightful and made the weekend.

  • Dear Jennifer,

    Thank you SO MUCH for arranging the porter and water taxi upon my arrival. It was truly such a help and I honestly don’t even know what I was thinking that I didn’t arrange this prior. I now realize how essential this transfer and porter is in Venice. I’ll be requesting this from Queen of Clubs as well as other services. I can’t wait to refer clients to you and start working.

    Thank you so much for your help and for coming to see me in Rome. My visit was so special as was the sunny warm weather. Rome greeted me with such open arms and I hope I’m lucky enough to return!

    New York, USA - Ovation Travel - Limor Decter

    You were awesome!

    New York, USA - Protravel - Masha Englin

  • I have worked with Tiago and Queen of Clubs on many trips, both within the US, Europe, and transatlantic.
     
    Without fail, Tiago and his team respond quickly all the time – I sometimes think they don’t sleep at all! No question goes unanswered and no request is too difficult. Their pricing is the best in the industry and always presented with photos and details. Contracts and paperwork are simple and dispatched quickly and, once confirmed, full details are updated right up to departure time. And then they inform me of the landing too. It’s wonderful to work with a company who understands that we like to know our clients are on the way, landed and taken care of. I’ve never had a problem at any point of the process. 
     
    You can book with Queen of Clubs with assurance. You are in excellent hands.

    Yours,
    Siobhan

  • Giulia,

    In all my years of doing this, I don’t think I have had a more positive review of services. It was a complete rave for what you did for him. Your guides were great. You upgraded the boat from Capri to Positano. He loved the golf cart excursion in Rome. He said your guides were wonderful. It was a 30 minute phone call filled with raves.
     
    Bravo! Thank you so much. I really appreciate it, but they appreciated it even more.
     
    All the best,
    Robert

  • Hi Daria,

    Italy was amazing! We had the best time and all worked out perfectly with transfers, guides, hotel and car rental. Our guide in Florence, Veronica, was especially great, really impressive in her knowledge, great energy, and just lovely to spend time with! I was also impressed with the communication from Queen of Clubs keeping us alerted on who to look for and where to meet.

    Thanks so much again for the last minute help with the trip!

  • The trip was PERFECT is every single way! The tours, guides, activities, services, hotels, restaurants -- all wonderful.

    It's hard to think of a high point, because every single day was super fun and interesting. The day of wine tasting and the cooking class were really special. And all the guides were fabulous -- interesting, knowledgeable, friendly. The two hotels were beautiful with top service. I would recommend everything we did. I will definitely review everything when Vitruoso contacts me. And I am already talking to my friends about the trip and yours service! They saw my photos on facebook and have been asking me!

    I will for sure be contacting you again about future trips! Thank you SO MUCH for the trip of a life time!

  • I returned last night from your amazing country and already want to return!

    I wanted to say GRAZIE MILLE for organizing the truffle hunt for my friend and I! From start to finish, the tour was perfection! Our guides, Tiziano and Nicola (+ Nicola’s adorable dogs Lulu and Otto) were so kind, fun and knowledgeable. The dogs found a lot of truffles, we learned a lot about Nicola’s private truffle property and ended with a delicious picnic straight from the land… truly farm to table! The courses seemed never ending and we had some limoncello and various other homemade aperitives at the end. Also, how could I forget, the cool experience of learning how to make ricotta cheese! I love that I was able to enjoy one of Queen of Club’s experiences and look forward to having clients experience these unique, authentic, and off the beaten path experiences in other destinations. It was a true pleasure and worth every penny! 
     
    Thank you again for coordinating and for Naike’s helpful text the day before - I loved that personal touch. I have soooo many pictures from the day and below are only a few of all the fun we had! Have a wonderful weekend.

    Grazie mille!

  • I love Queen of Clubs!

    I have worked with Queen of Club for clients on trips to Ireland, Scotland, England, and France and just love them.

    I am currently working with them on another couple of trips to Ireland (one of them my own), a trip to England and Scotland, and another trip to France and Italy. I really love working with them for many reasons, a couple of which are their attention to detail, and their fabulous hotels. I am picky about hotels and so are my clients. With other suppliers, I often have to request nicer hotels but I never feel that way with Queen of Clubs and it makes my life so much easier.

    I also really appreciate their timely responsiveness to me. It is very important to me to get fast responses from suppliers even if it is just to say they got my message and are working on it. I also really like that they check in with the clients every night while they are traveling regarding their services for the next day. This is a very, very nice touch that sets them apart from other suppliers.

    I have received excellent feedback from clients about the tours, drivers, and hotels. One of the trips I am currently working with them on is a group trip for an extended family of 13. I really appreciated getting on the phone with Zara and Elda and having them help me with the itinerary. Zara explained the hotels they would offer in each location, activities, and airports. It was so helpful!

    I don't feel the need to request quotes from other suppliers when Queen of Clubs services the area with which I need assistance. They are that good!

  • I was finally able to catch up with the client yesterday and she raved about her guide in Milan.

We truly had the trip of a lifetime. Everything was perfect and went off without a hitch. Queen of Clubs is such a well-run organization. We felt like VIPs everywhere we went, lol. Every hotel was beautiful, every tour was wonderful, every tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable, and every driver was great. Thank you so much for helping us plan this amazing family vacation!"

  • Dear Barbara, ,
    Yesterday as I asked for feedback, I will send you exactly what they wrote. They are so cute:

    "Ciao! Thank you so much for putting our whole trip together. It was a dream come true and all of the excursions were SO much fun!

    We learned so much about the history of each place we visited while seeing the most amazing sites and views. All of our tour guides were awesome!
    We especially loved our tour guide in Lake Como for the boat and walking tour. We also loved the tour guide we had for the Colosseum, Vatican, and Roman Forum. Our golf cart tour guides were so funny!

    The cooking class was so amazing, I'm trying to recreate what we made there for dinner tonight!

    All in all, we couldn't have asked for anything better. The hotels were all amazing and the drivers were as well. I would have to say the hotel in Rome was my favorite. Their breakfast was to die for and the staff was so friendly and sweet!

    The bar is set super high for the next time we're lucky enough to make it back over to that side of the world!"

    Fabulous feedback!

    "Hi Elaine - the trip was incredible - and the Villa Di Piazzano was the absolute best! Thanks so much for everything. And Mabel Pace – Thank you for planning the best trip ever for the Baker Party. There were no glitches. Our tours were fantastic! We LOVED everything about Villa Piazzano. Bill drove us expertly all over Tuscany. Ending with the boat tour in Venice was perfect and the weather that day was gorgeous. And we were all still speaking to each other at the end! Mabel As always, thank you for all of your prompt help and assistance"

  • Hi ladies,

    I wanted to share some great feedback from my client Maryellen:

    "Omg our Montepulciano day was amaaazing. Private vineyard tour with the winemaker, then he took us back into town (got us police permission to drive and park in upper town center) where we had a private tour of the caves and winery and a private tasting and lunch. After lunch he drove us outside of town to his favorite gelato place. Fabulous! And stopped at a vegetable grocer to get me this special giant garlic because we loved the pasta sauce at lunch. Such a fantastic personal attention and truly authentic experience."

    Thank you!

  • Hello,

    I wanted to share with all of you the feedback I received from my clients today upon their return home. I can honestly say that without amazing partners and friends like the teams at Queen of Clubs we could not be as successful, knowledgeable and create such lasting wonderful memories for our clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    "Hi Jolene,

    On behalf of our family, thank you for everything you did to make this a memorable experience! The strike at CDG was nothing that anyone could have prepared for in advance, but having the porter to walk us through the process was great, and the trip to the hotel went smoothly. The river cruise on the first evening was a relaxing way to introduce (and reintroduce) ourselves to the city. All of the hotels were beautiful, and the staff at each one made us feel very much at home. Their locations were just right (loved being in the Marais in Paris). My guess is if you asked us which was our favorite, you would hear different answers because they all had something special to offer.

    Queen of Clubs did a great job of pairing us with guides that were personable, knowledgeable, and flexible when we needed them to be. I always find it interesting how easy it is to get to know them in just a short amount of time. I think we lucked into Martin at the Louvre as there was a last-minute change. Martin is actually a curator and gave us an insider's perspective that was priceless. This tour was a highlight for Kenzie, and overall she said she was blown away by Paris. Annette was really fun to walk the market and cook with, and welcoming us into her home (with a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower) was very special.

    In Florence, we spent two days with Veronica. She was awesome, and again a great guide through the Duomo and Uffizi. Visiting these historical places is enhanced so much by someone guiding us through. We spent a day with Filipo (Phil) in Tuscany, and he was a really nice guy. He started with Tom and me in the morning, getting us to the horse stables and hanging out with the animals. And he was part of the team that made our cooking class at the farm such a fun experience. It is hard to put into words how breathtaking Borgo Pignano and the surrounding views from the property are. Scheduling this at the end of the trip was great planning. It was restful at just the right time. Dad and Gigi are now buddies, and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

    We have so many special memories and will be talking about our experiences for years and years to come, surely enhanced by the supply of wine and olive oil that should arrive in the next few weeks. Many, many thanks!"

    I need to tell you that every detail of our trip has been absolutely fantastic!

    One of the highlights for me, and I think the rest of the family, was the trip to the Cotswolds. Our guide, Phillip, who we had for both days, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The next day we went to Windsor Castle and enjoyed the history. All in all, our trip to London was very good.

    The flight to Venice and the pick up went well. Our guide in Venice, Giulia, was a delight. She is a Venetian and knew absolutely everything about everywhere we went. Our first tour was an orientation tour of Venice which was very good to get us a sense of history and some of the general topography. We also had a gondola ride which everyone enjoyed. Gulia then dropped us off at a fabulous lunch place we never would’ve found on our own. The next day we went to Murano and Burano. Each of these islands was amazing. The glass making tour was good and we felt about two hours on that was enough for us. Then to go to the island of Burano and walk around was really neat. Again, we felt that Giulia was an amazing and very personable guide.

    Today we went to the pizza making class. I think for me this is the highlight of our trip so far and that was completely unexpected for me since I don’t really like to cook. I believe our pizza makers was absolutely fantastic. The class is in his home which is a beautiful venetian apartment. It was a treat just to see the inside of one of these and too get a little orientation into the building he lives in and how most Venetians live day today. His venetian apartment is lovely and he could not have been more kind, interested and generous. At his home, in his own kitchen, he showed us how to make pizza from the very beginning, what type of flour to use, what type of salt to use, etc. Then we each made pizzas with him under his guidance. Kris especially likes to make pizza at home and I know she learned a lot from this. In addition to being a great tour guide and cook he was a fabulous host and we enjoyed every minute of our time with him.

    That’s where we are so far. I really appreciate everything you’ve done to set this up and frankly I can’t imagine that things could’ve been better than this!


    Thank you again Courtney,

  • Hi Naike,
     
    I wanted to second what the client said:

    "The team at Queen of Clubs are truly top-notch professionals! We loved working with them!"
     
    Kind regards,

  • The trip was fantastic! The hotels were all amazing and the guides were really fantastic. Queen of Clubs was extremely helpful while we were over there and they’re obviously very well connected. Thanks for all of your help and we will definitely reach out for our next trip!

    THANK YOU! It was very important to me to impress these clients and you crushed it!

  • I wrote to Robert earlier this week to ask him with whom I should communicate to convey our deep gratitude for everything that you and the team did for us. Everyone who I was in touch with was so unbelievably helpful, kind, patient, and detail oriented.

    The daily text reminders of where we had to be and what the day’s itinerary would be was extremely helpful and allowed us to be really relaxed. A schedule change that we requested was accommodated perfectly and everyone was so helpful and responsive. The drivers and tour guides were the best of the best. We can’t say enough good things about the travel planning support...I’ve honestly never been on a trip where every detail was so thoughtfully managed. We can’t thank you enough!

    I will not want to do another European trip without working with all of you again. All my best.

  • Maria and Rob, 

    I don't even know how to begin to say thank you properly. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We had the most memorable day at the Vatican with Salvatore. He clearly is the best in Rome. This day will be a core memory that we will hang onto forever for the three generations of our family. I think we are all still fully awe-struck and processing the incredible access, stories, and sights.
    Seeing Pope Francis was a surprise of a lifetime, especially for my mom! She was so happy she said she can die and go to Heaven tomorrow! We are forever grateful for you arranging this day. My mom has been a devoted Catholic her entire life, teaching religious Ed to 8th graders for 30 years. This was just the most unbelievably special day for her to finally see the Vatican and the Pope. I'm still in disbelief myself! 

    Thank you,
    Jill

  • Hi Mattia!

    WE MADE IT! Honestly, not hearing too much from the client during her time on the ground is a good sign. It looks like they had an incredible trip. They got an AMAZING upgrade in Palermo at Villa Igiea and were thrilled about that. 

    I honestly don't know what I would do without you and your team. You have been flawless in your execution all year.

  • Hi Robert,

    Best trip ever! We loved every minute of it.

    I wanted to tell you that Giulia and Margherita at Queen of Clubs were SO unbelievably fantastic. They were so helpful and communicative and went out of their way to help us rearrange a few things...I truly can’t say enough good things about them.

  • Goodness, gracious!

    We had such a fantastic trip to Italy - truly spectacular. Every detail was planned with great thought and executed perfectly. The hotels, the activities, the transportation and the transfers were flawless! Our guides, Fillipo (Tuscany), Veronica (Florence) and Alvise (Venice), were knowledgeable and personable and made our time so special.I can't say enough about the quality of service and connection they provided! They all spoke so highly of their respect for Queen of Clubs.

    Blessed to know both of you and appreciate the care you take to make our vacations so magical! 

    Thank you, and best wishes for some great family time and a great 2023! 

    Best,

  • Hi Mattia,

    My clients are absolutely thrilled with the arrangements for Venice. They gave them a balcony room overlooking the Grand Canal at the hotel, and they couldn't be happier!

    Thank you for all your hard work to make me look good with them!

    You are the best!

  • Ciao Mattia, here’s the feedback I got from the client:
    “ Hi Ane,
    I briefly caught up with the others about the trip and they mentioned that they absolutely LOVED Rome! The trip sparked a love of travel in everyone... So much so that they are thinking they may want to take their children to Italy in the summer of 2025 for a month and visit a few cities and the coast. If that does stick, you will be the first person to know!
    Specifically on this trip, the food was great, the tours were wonderful, and they said the Vatican tour and seeing the Sistine Chapel were truly incredible. They were able to see the Sistine Chapel with the lights on and were the only people there, while normally there are over 40,000 people per day and the lights are off for the normal viewing.
    I think for everyone that was the most special part of the trip as it was really a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

    Thank you so much for all of your help!

  • Dear Chiara,

    I have heard from the client: "Trip was amazing! The greeters were so important on the way home as the airport was so crowded and we were able to bypass the lines. I was able to go up to the rooftop restaurant one time for breakfast and it was lovely. Incredible experience, as always!"

  • Hi Mattia,

    Thanks again for everything! I just wanted to let you know that my client is still on social media with photos of his trip and now he is saying that he wants to visit southern Italy and Sardinia where his ancestors came from! This is exactly what i had hoped for!

    Great work! have a wonderful week!

  • Ciao
    Happy Friday
    I want to Thank you again for doing a fantastic job.
     
    We booked the last minute meet & Greet for the connecting service thru Rome airport for my clients on June 9th.  the clients wanted a STRESS FREE connection through Rome airport.
    All checked luggage was sent to the final destination of DFW. Gabriella was the perfect Meet & Greet agent. 
     
     
    Upon arrival into DFW, one of the clients didn’t receive one of her bags. All bag tags showed DFW. The client had an airtag on her luggage. It showed her luggage was at Rome airport. The client contacted Gabriella, he tracked down her luggage from Air Alitalia airlines and made sure the luggage was transferred to American Airlines from Rome to DFW.
     
    Wow- Without you arranging this last minute service and Gabriella’s help, my clients’ luggage might still be in Rome. I’m so glad we booked it. 
    Incredible service! You are the Best!  
    Thank you again for always taking excellent care of my clients and friends.
    Grazie Mille
    All the Best

  • Hi again Jennifer, now I am on to Catalina in Italy. I am sure my name is up on the dart board at Queen of Clubs with all these last minute chaotic changes!!! I had a tour booked for a family in Rome tomorrow morning. The client just texted me 30 minutes ago to add another person. I called Catalina, and she has worked her magic and been able to source another Colosseum entry ticket and add the additional person to the tour. I have no idea how you guys work your magic, but I wish I did as YOU GUYS ARE JUST SUPERSTARS! Thanks to Catalina for being absolutely amazing so last minute!!!

  • Fantastic experience in Milano!

    Freda was the most amazing, funny, knowledgeable guide I have had. She truly made the experience on our Milan tour one to remember, we were captivated from start to finished and left knowing so much more than I expected to learn.

    Thank you to Maria, Freda, Joseph and Lucas for the organization on our spectacular morning in Milan, we can't wait to tour with you again!

  • I was so impressed by everything you did - all your recommendations and tour guides and drivers were spot on.

    The golf cart tour was and cooking class were highlights of the trip I am so glad you suggested them. The kids were happy to see the Vatican. The hotels were lovely and the boat was spectacular as was all the tours in Paris. Our trip was truly special thanks in large part to you and your team we were blown away by all that you did.

    Thank you again!

  • Dear Jennifer and Team!
    We had a small email conversation with the client today about their travels next year, and this came from them completely unsolicited:

    "Cate, we are so grateful for you and Melody. Given all the moving parts to our France and Italy trips, and the fact they were all run like a Swiss watch, is so valuable when in foreign countries. And Queen of Clubs is the bomb! Also, all of our guides in France and Italy were terrific!"


    It's such a lovely thing to know that partners like you can make such magic happen for our clients...thank you!

  • Thank you for all your assistance with my client!

    I met them last night and they absolutely LOVED their cruise with Captain Mariano. They said it was a fabulous day of relaxation, and the Captain read their needs so well. It was their last day in Italy and they wanted to just hang out and relax, and that is totally what the Captain managed to do for them. They loved the Blue Grotto and the Captain recommended an excellent lunch in Capri.

    Thanks for taking such great care of these fabulous guests. I appreciate it very much!
