We had an incredible family vacation through Italy and Greece and made so many great memories! We loved all our hotels and our planned meals were fun and unique. We saw everything! Nicole was our tour captain and she was fun and organized and we enjoyed having her with us. This was my 9th trip with Mark Story of Now Journey and there is no way I could pick a favorite! I highly recommend!

Everything about this trip was first class from the accommodations and restaurants to the transportation between cities to the local guides chosen in each city. Our tour captain, Kent, ensured everything ran smoothly and seamlessly. Several times, he surprised us with little things which weren't mentioned in our itinerary, e.g., a transfer from city-to-city via private boat or an unscheduled stop for gelato or an impromptu wine and cheese picnic along a vista view. The little extras meant a lot! Every hotel in which we stayed was exceptional both in location and amenities. They were all well-located in city centers with easy access to historical landmarks and sites of interest. Restaurants were extraordinary and unique with meals which would delight anyone. Having optional dinners for the nights which did not include meals was much appreciated as it gave us yet another opportunity to explore a unique and delicious restaurant. Transportation between cities was either business class on the fast trains or in a comfortable Mercedes van. We believe the value received for the price paid was first-rate. Now Journey has gained loyal customers in us as we will definitely look to them for booking future trips. Rick and Cheryl Houser

Now Journey is a small group travel company that you can trust to provide an amazing, stress-free travel experience. My 4 daughters and I just retuned from Italy's Great Cities trip with an extension to the Amalfi Coast. Every aspect of the trip was first class and exceeded out expectations. Hotels were in locations in the heart of each city with excellent accommodations. The food and wine was experienced in amazing local "ristorantes" where the culture and flavor of Italy was on display. Sightseeing was with local, knowledgeable guides and we never waited in a line to get in . Our American Tour Captain guided us to maximize our experience and make sure we had a stress free journey. I highly recommend Now Journey to everyone who loves to travel Thanks to Now Journey for the trip of a lifetime!

Mark Story's selection of Cynthia Garofalo as our private tour guide in Rome provided us 2 amazing half-day experiences. She accompanied my wife and me as we walked through the recently opened Domus Aurea (Nero's Golden House), the Colosseum, and the Palatine Hill on our first afternoon in Rome. The next morning she was our tour guide through the Vatican Museums. Cynthia's knowledge of Italian history, geography, archaeology, and art is unsurpassed. When she learned we were on our way to Cairo, she frequently pointed out the connections that Rome had with Egypt in ancient times. She is undoubtedly the very best guide we have ever had. We much appreciated her enthusiasm for all things Rome!
