Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Joseph C, July 2015

The guide was completely knowledgable and the back stage and inside your was absolutely wonderful. It was with a small group and felt private and personal.
Afterward the Aria Restaraunt was a fabulous way to begin a charming night of enjoying the arts as the symphony that followed was perfect!

The concert was great, as well as the tour and dinner.
