"Laney builds beautiful relationships with native "insiders" with a passion for and ability to share what's special about their culture and country. She uses this talent to attract people who are interesting, curious and fun to travel with as well. The itineraries don't begin to convey the overall experience which, for us, was cumulative and much greater than the sum of the individual parts... There's a special magic in Sicily, and Laney and her associates in Italy did a beautiful job selecting the right balance. From seeing how people live in villages to learning how different cultures (and empires) have impacted what is Sicily today - including examples of what forgotten towns like Favara are doing to reimagine themselves."
