Why did you pick this as your destination?
Traveling the world has always been a dream of mine, but with our real life budget, we haven’t done as much international travel as we have wanted to. I got an email from Living Social about a travel deal to Rome that actually sounded affordable. I was super excited, but the tour company had awful reviews and it was a self drive trip. My husband has endless patience, for all things except when he is behind the wheel. I didn’t want to give up the idea of seeing Italy, so I messaged Katie, who I knew from setting up another Tour to Ireland to see if we could make it work on my budget. I never expected what they delivered!



Why did you choose Tenon Tours? What advantages did you have booking with Tenon Tours?

I tend to be more free spirited where Jim is more of a planner. I hate having traveling feel like work. I just like to pick up and go, but Jim likes to do research. With Tenon, we got the best of both worlds. We knew someone had mapped things out and done all the leg work so Jim felt good and I didn’t need to stress out about the details so I was happy too.

Although the trip wasn’t intended to be romantic as a purpose it totally was. The best moment was arriving at our second hotel and walking out on to our private ocean view balcony in Sorrento. The beauty of the ocean and mountains literally left me speechless. I felt so lucky and so totally happy in that moment. I will always remember that feeling.
