A recent client said, "We were overwhelmed with the prospect of organizing everything for our two week trip to Italy in September -- and had never relied on someone else to plan a trip. But from my first conversation with Eric I knew he'd help us make the trip memorable! Eric jumped in and helped us with every detail! We had ideas on the basic itinerary for our trip, and Eric took those ideas, gave us other suggestions/options, and helped us book and plan every detail perfectly. From booking our hotels, to arranging drivers and tours, and from finding the best service and price for specific elements of the trip, to booking our train tickets -- Eric didn't miss a detail. Eric is responsive, insightful and fun to work with! We are already discussing where we'll go on our next vacation/adventure and know we'll be contacting Eric to plan our trip for us!"
