Please pass on our thanks to Michelina and Umberto again for a wonderful evening at their house, and thank you also for being so helpful and friendly while we were with you - having a skilled interpretor so
close to hand was really good! We promise to have learnt a lot more Italian before we return though.
Best wishes, Martin and Moray- (East Haddon, Northamptonshire England)

"Faith, You were a pleasure, answered all our questions - and it was soooo nice to be with an American who understands us perfectly, but who was also able to navigate us through Italy so easily. It was
comforting to be with someone from home. You also know the lay of the land so well, and what type of transportation to take and when to take it!"

treat and your itinerary was perfection. The towns we visited, the sites, the food and the company were all amazing. Thank you for making our week so special. We are so grateful and we will never
forget it. Grazie and Ciao. "

"Faith, words cannot adequately describe the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. The views from the top of Anacapri and the gardens of the Villa Cimbroni in Ravello were spectacular We thoroughly
enjoyed the quaint towns of Positano and Amalfi and many return visits via bus during our stay. We were so glad that we added extra days to the trip which allowed us to explore Praiano, Pompei
and spend an entire day in Sorrento – the shopping was great!
Faith, you made the trip a memorable event that we will look back on for years to come. Your knowledge of the Coast, your charming personality and your attention to detail made this an even more
enjoyable experience. Every time we look back on our time on the Amalfi Coast we will think fondly of you. I highly recommend experiencing the Amalfi Coast with you."

(Sept. 13th-20th, 2008)
"Our Amalfi vacation was absolutely wonderful. Unlike other Amalfi Coast tours, our tour was done by boat. The personal attention was
unsurpassed. We couldn't have asked for a more friendly and knowledgeable tour guide then Faith Manna. She was more that willing to make changes as we went along to accommodate our needs. She
made us feel like she was on the vacation with us. Our Amalfi vacation was one of the best vacations ever. Thanks Faith for a wonderful time, we wish you nothing but the best."
Carol & Ed- Aspen, Colorado
How we miss you! We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed meeting and
spending time with you. You were so helpful to us during our stay at Villa
Michelina. You were waiting for us upon our arrival and you were there when we
said our sad farewells! During the week, you answered so many of of our
questions and always guided us in the right direction. You shared so much of
your knowledge of the Amalfi Coast and the Italian customs with us, and we
learned so many things. You are truly a joy with your precious personality. We
will recommend your services time and time again. What would we have done
without you when the passports were lost??? We hope to visit the beautiful
Amalfi Coast again one day, but a trip wouldn't be the same without you guiding
us. We wish you the very best life has to offer and wish you would visit us in
Mississippi. Please give Michelina, Umberto, Luna, and Michele our love and
again thank Michelina for the delicious food and lovely flowers and thank
Umberto for helping us grocery shop and driving us to Positano.
Love, Betty and Donnie SmithJane and Tom Beasley"

"Dear Faith, How are you? We think about you a lot and love to tell about how a Jersey girl started
her own business on the Amalfi coast. Bob and I fell in love with the area and it was definitely in our
top 3 vacations. I hope we will be going to Italy next year again.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year!Hope all is good."

"Last summer, my husband Fred and I, along with our friends Carol and Ed Allen, vacationed in Italy. We had never been to southern Italy before and had long dreamed about seeing the Amalfi Coast.
We spent a week in Rome and vicinity. It was very, very hot. The language was a great challenge, so even though we enjoyed Rome, I was very happy to move on to Amalfi. The Hotel Tritone in Praiano
was beautiful. The next morning we went down to the dock - and there in the water was a boat waiting to greet us, with a Captain and a woman waving at us. What a beautiful sight to meet the beautiful,
joyful and charming Faith Manna. It was love at first sight for all of us! Faith made it our very special private tour. She paced it according to our needs and desires. An extra special treat was meeting and
spending time with Michael - Faith's one and only.
If you don't see the Amalfi Coast looking up from the sea, you never really see the Amalfi Coast. On the other hand, if you don't see it by walking through the towns and gazing down, you also never see it.
This trip was spectacular - not just the scenery, but especially to see it through Faith's eyes. Ciao!!!
