My parents’ good friend is a travel agent and specializes in customized trips to Italy, Spain, and France.  He planned my sister’s trip to Ital in 2007 and my trip to Spain in 2008 – both of which were successful.  His name is Richard Derwingson – Mt. Shasta, CA. He and his wife, Jackie, owned a travel agency since the 1970s.  I am not sure if they are retired or not.  I only have his private contact info and can email him if you are really interested.  Otherwise, you can try to Google him and find something.  Let me know.

We used a local travel agency in Miami that worked with Avanti Tours which coordinates Italy tours. We did Rome, Florence and Italy AND pretty much they took care of soooooooooo much. We had dinner prepaid in each city – great hotels and tours – but most important time to ourselves, guides when necessary, train tickets and arrangements to each city and pick up from stations to hotel in each city. We saw several people from other places on the same tours so I believe with agents through out the country. Avanti Tours – they have several options and you can upgrade pursuant to your needs for luxury etc. We upgraded from the basic hotels and even got upgrades once we arrived ( even on new years) we had a bse room and got upgraded to a huge suite that we figure cost about 700 dollars anight! We had champagne bottle in each hotel we arrived in – PLEASE look it up – we had a great romantic and amazing honeymoon & hope to travel back to Italy soon and use them again! Good luck!
