“ICNOS Adventures provided our family with a Christmas to Remember on the Amalfi Coast. From the family restaurants with their warm welcome and delicious foods, the hotel managers expecting our arrival and ensuring our comfort, to the care of our luggage and the parking of the car, everyone connected to ICNOS Adventures was friendly and flexible, helpful and reliable, which meant that we could relax and thoroughly enjoy the stunning beauty of the Amalfi Coast. Marcello printed up our daily itinerary which included easy to read maps, and historical information on the sites we would pass as we walked. Also, there were recommendations on where to have our lunch, and a suggestion of a special site worth the extra effort to see. Over two sunny days we walked the mountain paths past ancient waterworks, terraced lemon groves, and amongst a herd of goats with the waters of the Gulf of Salerno shimmering below us. We have had an opportunity to travel to Italy before, and have done other walking tours, and it is agreed that we will tell everyone considering a tour of Italy to put their vacation time in the hands of Marcello, at ICNOS Adventures, they will walk away with memories to last a lifetime and a deep appreciation for the “little something extra” they do so well. We are very appreciative of all they did to make our walking tour so memorable! We wish them the very best! with warmest regards.”

“Dear Marcello, We had an amazing time. The coast is incredibly beautiful, and your directions were very clear and easy to follow, even if sometimes I wished they said, “Walk to the nearest set of escalators and step on them” – lots of stairs, but always worth it when we got to the top. Thank you so much – it was one of my best holidays ever.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our walking trip on the Amalfi Coast. ICNOS travel went above and beyond what we expected to make our trip both pleasurable and informative. Both of our guides, Marcello and Danielle, provided guidance and the appropriate amount of support to enable us to enjoy our vacation without worrying about all the details. We especially liked that they checked with us to determine what we wanted to do, and then balanced that with what they wished to show us and tell us about the beautiful and historic area that we visited. It was also good that they provided us with time together as a group, as well as time for us to explore on our own. All of our questions and concerns were addressed promptly and satisfactorily. We are appreciative for the extras that ICNOS provided during our memorable visit to the Amalfi Coast. The lunches, their favorite local restaurants, the Italian people they introduced to us were all welcome and indicative of their willingness to “go the extra mile.” Not all tours would do this. We would certainly not hesitate to travel with ICNOS again.”

“Good morning Marcello, It always takes a bit of time for my travels to synthesize and for me to reflect on what the adventure has meant to me in the great scheme of things. It seems I remember a great deal of laughter and hilarity…good company…earnest thought… spectacular scenery… wonderful food…it is hard to resist the superlatives!!! I’m sorry I didn’t get an e-mail address for Marco so I will ask you to extend to him my sincere appreciation for the time we spent together and for his patience and good humour with an old woman who loves to tease!! I have a sense that Edith and I benefited from your determination to ensure our satisfaction with our travel plans and I am grateful for your attention to my concerns. You deserve to do well Marcello and I hope that will be your good fortune. If I can support or endorse your abilities and “product” I should be happy to do so. Certainly I am telling hiking friends of a marvelous contact for them in Italy! Sara was a delight and we had a fantastic time in Tuscany and Umbria. Paulo is a charming man, by the way, and very reassuring in his manner and approach. I have Sara’s email so I intend to contact her directly.Thank you (and Anna) for a wonderful Italian experience. You would be most welcome as a visitor to Canada and certainly here in my neck of the woods! Wishing you every happiness and continued success. Wendy”

“Jeff and I had an absolutely delightful time – from the exquisite scenary and impressive historic sites to the warmth and friendliness of the people we met along the way – we would not have changed a thing. ICNOS Adventures is to be commended for creating an experience we will cherish forever and for your and Dannielle’s commitment to our comfort and enjoyment of a diverse and interesting itinerary. I feel like we were able to experience the uniqueness of each of the different towns we frequented along the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Peninsula while never feeling ‘rushed’ to the next event. Each day was well timed and each place we stayed gave us a unique environment from which to begin our day and end our evenings. We sincerely thank you for creating so many wonderful memories. Best to you and yours, Bethany”
