GAIL'S GREAT ESCAPES
We are pleased you have chosen to join us on one of our small group tours to Italy. We are looking forward to helping you get to know this area we enjoy so much, and introducing you to life in Italian small villages.
Part of the charm of living in a small Italian village is life is slower and conveniences are not taken for granted. The ancient tile floors are uneven, the stone stairways are worn, the hill towns are steep and require lots of walking. This is all part of experiencing something old, something new, something different.
We try to plan for every eventuality, but of course that is impossible. We will do everything we can to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable time with us in Italy.
To make a reservation for our Italian tour, please contact me by phone, text, or e-mail to be sure space is available. Once we have confirmed availability, please complete the form below and return to us, along with your deposit of $500 per person. The reservation form and check must be received within one week after space is confirmed.
Checks should be made payable to:

and mailed to Gail Hecko:
107 Brunswick Ave.

A $500 per person deposit is required at the time of booking, payable within seven days of reservation confirmation. $250 of that deposit is non-refundable, in order to secure the hotel reservations. Trip insurance is strongly advised.
The balance is due 90 days before the first day of the tour. For tours booked less than 90 days in advance, full payment is required at reservation.
