“Thank you for a glorious trip-it was splendid all around. Your first class treatment was grand and very kind. Jnane Tamsna the perfect respite, and Essouira and Imlil ‘must see’ experiences. Thank you for all the planning, juggling and mastermind behind the logistics. It was such a treat to land in Marrakech to be swept away for ten days of bliss!” ~ Lucy Penfield (Morocco 2010)

Recently featured in Tasting Table‘s Best Epicurean Dream Trips of 2011:

Join Peggy Markel, consummate traveler and Slow Food devotee, aboard a luxurious sailboat making its way along Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Each day, the boat docks at a new town, where guests will learn about the local cuisine (baked whole fish, limoncello) and take in the gorgeous coastline while giving the captain a hand with the sails.”

“We can’t stop talking about the trip and how special it was. Peggy definitely delivered the ‘local flavor’ and gave us so many unique experiences and opportunities that we could have only enjoyed because of her and her connections.” ~ Jane Stweard (Amalfi 2009)

~ Gabrielle Edison (Spain 2010)
