“Honestly, this is the best tour for experiencing a country such as Sicily from the point of view of someone who truly loves Sicily. If you love to explore city after city absorbing the culture and nuances of each city and its people and food, then this is the tour for you!” MaryFrances Giacalone
“Without the unexpected relentless generosity of Connie Costa I would not have had the culinary adventures in Sicily that I had! She is a remarkable woman who went above and beyond to help my experience in Sicily be an unforgettable one. She checked in on me daily and made many suggestions but mostly demands! Nothing about her is not Sicilian. HA! She connected me with family members who live in Palermo so I would have local connections/support, she guided me to the Palermo markets and to a most incredible restaurant where I tried sea urchin for the first time! Theres no doubt I would not have had the magical time I had in Palermo especially were it not for the ride I took with dear Connie. She takes people on tours of this gorgeous island…and I highly recommend you experience this place and this woman’s passion for the place!” – Dayna Mondello
“What a wonderful trip! And again Connie you are the best and most knowledgeable tour guide that I have ever had the pleasure of traveling with. Can’t hardly wait to travel with you again. ” Dee Bacus
“Connie is amazing. Not only did she plan my entire trip, she gave me an experience that was nothing short of magical. This trip was very important to me, as it was a tribute to my mother who passed in late August of 2011. I wanted to honor her on her 40th birthday by taking our dream trip. I would have never imagined that I would be leaving Italy so touched and in love. In my time there I got to do so much more than sight see and eat delicious food. I was able to take the time to do some soul searching. I’m a huge fan of the movie Eat Pray Love, so when I talk to my friend’s about how wonderful this trip was, I always tell them it was my Eat Pray Love moment. I ate my way around Sicily and have never been the same after those exquisite meals. I had a lot of time to pray and reflect on the goals I want to achieve all while sitting on gorgeous beaches, and I received the beautiful gift of learning to love myself, which was definitely not on my agenda beforehand. It’s beautiful to see that Connie can take something that is already amazing like travel and turn it into pure magic. I will never forget cooking in a palazzo, sitting around the table with Connie’s family eating an authentic meal, or standing at the top of the Greek Amphitheater. Those are things I would have never seen myself doing, but that’s where the magic truly lies. I came home knowing that anything is possible if I simply believe it is so. After coming home I began to take more risks and search for the things that truly bring me joy. I have promised myself that I will always be the most authentic and brave version of myself. I am no longer afraid of what people think of me, I flaunt my sassy and bubbly personality all over the place. I recently signed my first apartment lease and began working a job outside of food service which were two huge goals of mine. I’m no longer afraid to live and that’s a beautiful feeling.” – Rachel Ancheta
“The Sicily, Italy trip was simply amazing. You’ll discover not only a place as rich in history if not more so than mainland Italy, but you’ll eat food better than any you can find here. It’s so fresh and alive! You’ll get to experience being a part of Italian family life and what it feels like to dine al fresco with the laughter and joy of people who are pleasant and beautiful in heart and soul. The most amazing part of the trip is discovering yourself somewhere between the warm sea, the island air, the slopes of Mt. Etna, the quaint streets and piazzas, and the joyful ebb and flow of island life. WOW! You’ll never remember what you did at that one day of work, but you’ll always remember your trip to Italy!” – Onna Young
"I highly recommend going on this retreat. I joined Connie and Dr. Sarah on this trip and it is one I will never forget. I met some amazing people and left with some beautiful friendships. Sicily is breathtaking, so full of history and beauty. The people are so warm and welcoming. If I had to describe this trip in one word, it would be magical. I cannot wait to go back next year. Connie and Sarah are so wonderful and inspiring. You can tell a lot of planning and love was put into this trip. Everything was perfect, from the hotels to the tours and the workshops. " - Leela M.
