“Allison’s passion for Sicily — its people, its complex history, and its traditions and culture — permeates every aspect of this tour, which introduces her groups to aspects of the island that most travelers would never see or experience. The great care taken with every aspect of the travel experience is exemplary, and Allison’s ability to flex and adapt with aplomb when something unexpected occurs is a great testimony to her skill, care, and integrity as a tour leader. The local resources woven into the itinerary, from chefs, artists and craftspeople to expert local guides, greatly enrich the experience. This was no ordinary group tour! It was an exquisitely curated travel and cultural adventure.”
