"The excursions were the highlight of my trip. I don’t think I would have visited so many places if I were planning this trip on my own, so I am very happy you arranged a variety of trips for us.  I loved Monopoli. Tory's zest for planning excursions on our Puglia retreat was amazing. She's an excellent yoga instructor too. It was a week I will never forget!”   Karena, USA
