Erina salvaged our summer vacation and made it a beautiful tour around Southern Italy. All of our hotels were fabulous and just what we were looking for, transfers seamless and restaurants were great. Erina is always available and is always ready to help with something as large as re-planning an entire vacation or something as small as making sure we had a transfer from the ferry to train station if we needed it. The Virtuoso perks are also another big plus! I can't wait to work with her and her team again!-Sam R.
