A Recent Review of this tour

Giorgio and Govanna went above and beyond to give us an unforgettable day. We visited my husband's (very small) heritage village in southern Italy and they took the time to visit the village several months ahead of our tour to prepare. They met with the town clerk, looked for genealogical records, found the house where my husband's great grandparents lived, and provided a welcoming environment for us. We are so grateful for their enthusiasm about history and making local connections. Great experience!
