“I just wanted to say that when we received our itinerary, this is the day we were both looking forward to the most. And we were not disappointed. This was one of our highlights of our trip so far, and we have had many highlights. Vilma is the warmest, friendliest person we have met on our travels. We had one of the best meals of our trip with her.
Thank you again for arranging this amazing trip for us.”
- RON & RAINEE
This was a trip we will never forget. Antonio and his staff was very accommodating and can see why his tours are so successful. Just show up at the airport and leave the rest to Savour Italy.

It was a dream come true and an absolutely brilliant introduction to Italy. Antonio's enthusiasm was contagious and we were very fortunate to benefit from his expertise in choosing and guiding us through so many unique highlights. I can hardly wait to return!

I would like to thank you for having given me the chance to “taste“ Italy during my trip with your company. The planning, accommodations were above expectations. Had a marvellous time, location of hotel was great near market and other interesting sites. Would love to go back to Rome and do a more thorough tour of the city, you never know maybe I will get there one day.
Came back to snow on the ground , that is Calgary for you ! I am missing my delicious breakfasts and my cappuccino !!!!
Again thanks for an unforgettable holiday. I wish you the best of luck with your company, you have got a good thing going there!”

We are back home from what turned out to be the most wonderful vacation we’ve taken (and we have been taking two trips a year for a long time now!). Words cannot describe how much gratitude we hold in our hearts towards you for creating the perfect itinerary for us.
Transfers happened without a glitch. Our driver Stella while in Tuscany even “threw in” a nice stop in Greve on our way to the winery so we can check out the beautiful piazza. Both of our guides, Rosanna and Claudia, were beyond lovely and their knowledge and kindness were second to none.
Vilma, well, what an experience and a privilege to have been able to learn from her, in her home and enjoy a meal we made together. I need to find the Italian word for sweetheart because that’s who she is!
The hotels were all in great locations. And the lunch at the winery was fantastic. We will remember this trip for the rest of our lives, and already thinking about the next part of Italy we should explore as you have managed to give us the Italian bug ;)

“Karl and I would like to sincerely thank you for an unforgettable tour. It was indeed well organized and executed at a suitable pace, always presenting us with new and engaging discoveries. It was inspiring to meet so many artisans so passionate about their trade, so deeply proud of their accomplishments and with such generous hospitality. Bravo to each and every one of them. And as we had also hoped, we experienced great food and even greater wines and met interesting people. Thank you very much for a class act, all the way!!!”

“Antonio, thank you so very much for putting together such a superbly organized wine and culinary tour of Northern Italy. Your passion, professionalism, enthusiasm, generosity, flexibility, and pride were all reflected in the outstanding way you put together a tour filled with the balanced amount of variety and surprises. Everything seemed flawless from beginning to end. I am thoroughly going through withdrawal and longing for salamis and cheeses, sparklings, Nebbiolo, Amarone, cappuccino, espresso, fresh fish, and the list goes on… Alan and I enjoyed the trip immensely.”

“To: Il Maestro Antonio Thank you for giving us the tour of a lifetime. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Grazie,”

“The tour was absolutely wonderful. I am not a “tour” person and had my concerns when I agreed to sign up. But, I was proved wrong. This really wasn’t like a tour – It truly became a group of friends exploring the magic of Italy. A wonderful blend of wine, food, scenery, education and new experiences. Thank you for the memories and for the inspiration!”
