The trip was amazing, as were our hosts, Larry and Alaina Kanfer, and the Katcheturians. Behind the scenes work by Bill Owens was invaluable. From beginning to end, it was obvious that these folks had our well-being and enjoyment uppermost in their minds. Larry and Stevie Jay (and Bill) handled a day one snafu at O'Hare (airline problems caused several delays getting started on our trip) with patience and efficiency. Details of the trip were carefully planned, and all activities were cheerfully carried out. Visits to vineyards, local restaurants, small villages, lovely piazzas, and historical sites... all came together to create a beautiful experience. To top it all off, we had a very congenial group of co-travelers. This was our first experience traveling as part of a tour group, and it was wonderful. Thank you to everyone involved! So glad we decided to participate in this trip!

Our Tuscany adventure was very fun with lots of delicious food and wine. The group included nice people and the tour leaders were especially attentive. The hotel in Montecatini was charming and comfortable. A wonderful, memorable trip.
By Linda R for Tuscany: Off the Beaten Path with Larry Kanfer on 11 May, 2022
It was a wonderful trip, very well organized, and when there were glitches in travel (due to airline issues, weather, etc. ) we had immediate help and that made it so much more simple and stress-free. Loved the cities and restaurants that were chosen and the hotels were very nice. The bus travel was deluxe, driver did an amazing job in very difficult driving situations, and I really enjoyed the tour guides who were incredibly knowledgeable, spoke English well, and were very friendly. Such a fun and stress free trip! That’s what I want! Most definitely looking forward to another trip with Stevie Jay Travel!

It was a great trip overall. Met many great people. The food was awesome! Liked the concept of the hop-on-hop-off busses. The River Chats were fun and informative. Enjoyed the shows The dining room and theatre were a little too cool at times. Thought the available television channels could have been more varied. Joan Miller

We had a great time. It was a great time meeting people. The staff and crew were just the best. The 3 meals each day was great, but to much for me. I\ we would travel with Stevie Joy again and are looking forward to do just that. The view from the boat of the Mighty Mississippi and the land along it was beautiful. Especially in Wisconsin an Minnesota.
