We usually receive the request by email or webpage of course, and we are always happy to hear from clients by telephone. Once you have answered our initial questions about the clients, hotel taste, budget, special interests, dates, number of people, that is when we get creative and we will send you an outline of what we suggest for your client. Our Customer Service Managers require this information to proceed with your request. Next you can approve or make changes before we finalize your tailored proposal.
Once we have all your information, we can make and send you the proposal within this week or the next. We always respond within 2 business days to our emails.

No, although occasionally there are a few high budget ones that we trust, as well as occasional apartments. This is not our strength, but you can ask us. Later we can assist you with touring/transport needs once you have rented the property.
This is a good question. We are very good at it! Marcy is a graduate of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, and half of our team are ex-hoteliers. We focus on few, top hotels and have a particular way of working with them that allows you the best experience. We work with 4* and 5* properties only. The tour always goes most smoothly when everything including the hotel is arranged within the package. Nevertheless, we are happy to arrange your package without hotels. Note: We no longer handle hotel and transfers only requests.
No, we create private group tours for private clients.
We usually quote net in euros since it is our most competitive pricing for you, and all our costs are paid in euros. Nevertheless, we are happy to convert euros into a dollars estimate (we do not guarantee the exchange rate) or charge gross whenever requested.
