"Holly and Caroline provided a tremendous week of varied experiences suited to interests appealing to all for our family group that included three generations. Our time in the Cinque Terre was significantly enhanced by the passion the Cimino ladies have for this region coupled with their language fluency and deep knowledge of unique providers and activities that a tourist would be unaware of. We all left with wonderful memories and a greater appreciation of the culture!"

"We loved the selection and pace of the activities. The intimate boat ride, winery tour, cooking school and epic meal that followed. The choice of restaurants was outstanding and it took the mystery out of trying to find a place. The meal in Vernazza on the balcony overlooking the sea was excellent and will be a lasting memory."

"An amazing week in the Cinque Terre! We especially loved the pesto-making experience - hilarious instructor, beautiful views, and delicious food and wine. Fantastic vacation and we could not have experienced it without Holly's expertise and connections!
