“Hello Marcello, we are still in Italy enjoying our second week but want to send you a big thank you for all the work you and your team obviously put into your tours. I know once I get back home to Canada I will be very busy with everyday life so now is best. When we met you on our arrival the first night in Cava di Tirenni, you spoke with such passion about the experience you and your company are trying to provide- the real Italy not the touristy Italy. You never stopped smiling and we felt your passion. every single day we were amazed at the special attention we received- from the hosts of the beautiful places we stayed ; from the chefs at the restaurants you booked for us. And of course our wine tasting! I hope our two cases of wine arrive in Canada safely!!); from the chauffeurs some of whom we got to know… In short we felt like honored guests each and every day. We hiked hard each day, but liked that there were some easier options to consider, including bus options which we sometimes took. The directions were very detailed and there was only one day where we lost our way, but it quite likely was our fault. We often experienced that- where locals were happy to help even when they couldn’t speak more than a word of English, and my limited Italian, but they would go out of their way to help. My memories of this trip will last a lifetime. If I get a chance to come back to Italy, your company will be my first choice, absolutely and maybe even we can convince our husbands to join us next time!! Please feel free to give our email to anyone who would like to ask us questions.
It was an experience of a lifetime and grazie Mille. Debbie and Heather “

“Hello Marcello and Anna and all at Icnos
we returned home safely and we still have the afterglow of the wonderful time that we spent in Italy with your guidance.
Let me share some of our impressions:
Of course the coast and the places are wonderful, and that is a given… but to have all our arrangements so beautifully orchestrated by you in advance made the experience of this beautiful corner of the world even more pleasurable.
From the minute we were met at Naples airport we knew that you guys had your act together.
The wonderfully organised welcome package as well as the daily itinerary packages were thoughtfully assembled and very thorough. We appreciated having you close at hand to check in with when the weather did not cooperate, and to know that you were orchestrating the pickups and hotels and everything worked perfectly.
The walking was perfect for us. None were too strenuous, but all were enjoyable. We enjoyed finding our own way on the walk in the first saturday through the valley of the Mills and back around through Atrani, which was thoroughly enjoyable and we were glad that we had the ride up to Ravello, rather than enduring that walk up which would have left us very little energy to enjoy the town and the gardens of Ravello… so that was actually a great side benefit to the bad weather!!!
Capri was lovely. In fact I have been raving about the hotel to our friends who go there every year!
We also thoughtly enjoyed the walk from Praiano to the path of the Gods… especially the stop for drinks at the old monastry.
The other magnificent walk was the walk to Jeranto bay.
Your directions were all excellent as were your recommendations. The Hotel in S. Agata was a great place to end our tour and we had a hectic one day stay in Napoli.
Pompeii was a challenge to find entrance ticket without waiting in a 45 minute long line to the ticket counter… but we did get a tip from a local on where a side entrance and ticket office was located that shortcut this long line. This is a tip you may want to share with your clients.
My wife and I have done a wide variety of different styles of travel, form self guided to fully guided, but this was the first time we have done a private prepared daily self guided itinerary that you prepared for us, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We would highly recommend ICNOS to anyone with a spirit of travel and adventure.
Next time … Sicily!!
Ciao, Thanks Brian”
