We have had such great feedback from our returning clients from the Verona Opera that we thought we would share some of it with you. There is too much to share it all but to give you a flavour.
"We had a very enjoyable time in Verona. The Accademia Hotel was excellent in every respect. The hotel staff were very helpful and spoke good English taking time to provide information on tourist attractions and local restaurants. Our room was spacious and thankfully had aircon as the outside temperatures were in the mid 30's! The food and service in the Accademia restaurant was extremely high quality and they have an excellent wine list. We enjoyed a pre Opera dinner consisting of beautifully prepared Pasta followed by Turbot accompanied by an excellent bottle of 2004 Jermann Vintage Tunina.
The tasting menu at Villa del Quar (Ristorante Arquade) was also fabulous. The setting is simply stunning and we wish we had arrived a little earlier for pre dinner wine tasting. The chef has worked in Michelin starred London restaurants and came to the table after the meal to get our comments on the menu. With wine this was not a cheap night out by any stretch of the imagination but for a special occasion it was really stunning.
The transfer from the Airport by chauffer driven Limo was very efficient and comfortable and we had the same car/driver for the trip to/from Villa del Quar. We also had a great pre Opera dinner at Ristorante Maffei which we would highly recommend. The "Gold" seats at the two Opera performances were in Rows 10 and 16 and were centrally positioned so we had a great view of the stage.
Last but not least, Abigail was very helpful and did everything she could to make our trip very memorable."
"Just a short note to thank you for arranging the trip to Italy for me and my family. I have to say it lived up to my expectations. The organisation was faultless, all transfers were on time and all the admin ( tickets passes etc )delivered as expected. My mum particularly enjoyed the opera in Verona ( fantastic tickets by the way) and a real red carpet experience. I will have no hesitations in recommending your company to my friends and I look forward to our next business together."
"We loved the whole weekend, thank you so much. Everything worked like clockwork, we were really well looked after throughout, and we made maximum use of our Verona Cards. The lunch in Sirmione was exquisite, and they seemed to be expecting us from the moment we walked in.
All in all it could not have been better, and we are very grateful for the arrangements you suggested and made. A perfect way to celebrate my wife's birthday. We would certainly recommend you to anyone we know."
"We really enjoyed the trip. The hotel was in a great location and the staff friendly and helpful. The opera tickets and the tourist pass were waiting for us at reception on arrival. The taxi was also waiting for us on arrival even though we had a 5 hour delay at Gatwick. All in all a fantastic trip and hope to use your services in future"
"Just to let you know that we were very pleased with the service you provided, the hotel was very good and with nice location for a central city hotel, conveniently situated to the Arena. Our seats choice at the Arena were excellent, also the lady driver who collected us a dropped us to the airport was very nice and her car was very comfortable. Overall you made our trip very comfortable and nice and was very good value for money."
"Thank you so much for organizing our trip to Verona and Lake Garda, everything - hotels - opera - taxis - all perfect and worked smoothly. We had a brilliant time and will definitely get in touch with you again"
"The weekend was absolutely fabulous. my wife was thrilled as it was our 20 anniversary surprise weekend. Everything went well."
"It all went very well, it was exactly what I had hoped for - the opera of course spectacular. Many thanks for an excellent service.I will certainly recommend Weekend a la Carte to anyone".
"Verona was absolutely lovely and we had a great time for four days. All the arrangements went very smoothly with no hold ups at any point. The Hotel Firenze was very nice indeed with every comfort and a beautiful room. All the hotel staff were excellent as was the breakfast and I would certainly use this hotel again as it was an easy walk to the Arena. The Gold Poltronissime seats in the Arena were also very good. Anyway, thank you so much for booking our trip and helping us with all the little queries. I liked using your company a lot and have already recommended you to other friends and will certainly use you another time"
" The arrangements were excellent. Everything went as clockwork from pick-up to set-down. The Accademia was brilliant, the best hotel in thirty years of European travel. The quality of the room, the daily fresh bed-linen, the attention, when needed, was absolutely excellent. The staff at all levels were unfailingly helpful and couldn't be bettered. The Breakfast Table superb.The performance was bettered only by the incredibly brilliant way in which they delivered my forgotten car keys to the airport. Wonderful service. Having previously spent a day in Verona we knew the place was wonderful but the opera experience just made the whole thing such a joy. Thank you for arranging such an enjoyable time, it was unforgettable".
