Testimonials 2009/10
 
Hi Robbie, The Tour Leader with the mostest!
A MASSIVE THANKYOU for all you did for us on our trip through Croatia.
Thankyou also for taking time out to share with us in the evenings. Our memories of the meal out in Zagreb and the chance to see how the locals spend their evenings was something we would never have mangaed on our own. We would never have found that wonderful restaurant in Dubrovnik or known of the wonderful concert we attended there. I could go on and on., but THANK YOU!

"Croatia was awesome! It was all you said it would be and much more! Thank you Robyn for all your helpful advice. We loved it and want to return again and again. We particularly loved the Island of Hvar and could have happily stayed for much longer. The Croatian people we met along the way were so warm and welcoming. Thanks so much."

"I've read the books, seen the films, now I've lived the experience of a holiday in a Tuscan villa and I'm definitely under the Tuscan spell! Robyn looked after us brilliantly and took us to some wonderful little Tuscan towns.                                                                                       
If anyone is interested in holidaying in a villa in Tuscany I will happily put you in touch with Robyn. She is an absolutely charming woman who will look after you well."

"On Wednesday, we drove North to Tuscany, meeting our  friend Robbie Vulinovich in the little town of Greve in Chianti. Of course you know Tuscany will be beautiful, but even so it takes your breath away.
Arriving into Greve and following Robyn up the winding hills to the wine estate of Villa Branca, we were stunned by it all. The rows of cypress pines lining the winding roads, the beautiful little villages, the vines lining every slope, the olive groves, the colours of Tuscany"
Maureen Gardner- Darlinghurst , Sydney, NSW
 
"Everywhere I went in Italy I loved, and felt quite soulful about it. I loved our time in Tuscany at Villa Branca and the lovliest of days spent with you in Siena and Florence, and of course the wine festival in Greve were highlights. You are lovely company Robyn, and very good at what you do.
The blue scarf I bought in Siena I  always think of as 'Robyn's scarf'', and you were right, the blue suits me well." - Lee Moloney, Gold Coast, Queensland
 
 
"Thankyou for the undivided attention you showered on our group in Italy. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed all the arrangements you made for us, in fact I don't know which part I enjoyed most. The villa was fantastic and having my morning coffee on the terrace overlooking the vineyards was near perfection.... you made the trip a very memorable one. Thank you"
Candy Brown Ashmore Queensland
 
"From the minute we got off the plane, into the coach and on to Villa Branca, our first (I say first) trip to Tuscany was unforgettable, as my husband Jeffrey said "However beautiful you have heard Tuscany is - DOUBLE IT!!".
Our trip was planned for our daughter Tiffany's birthday, and we knew from other trips we have done in her company nothing would be left out specially in the hands of Robyn as well.
We visited the most beautiful towns, ate the most delicious meals, tasted great wines, specially Villa Branca's product and a great conviviality was shared by all of the 21 people there, people from South Australia, Victoria, Colorado USA, UK and Queensland, the age span was from 23 yrs to 73 yrs young.   The special day for the celebrating of Tiffany's birthday went off without a hitch, we pooled our furniture from our different apartments so we could make a long table on the patio of our apartment, to overlook the wonderful view of the valley, everyone was deligated to doing a course and bringing their own place setting, it was definitely a 'slow food' day as the lights started twinkling in all the little villas around us before we started to pack up, the food, wine, company, everything was 'BELISSIMO!'
One of the most wonderful places we went to with Robyn was Pienza, we all decided we could live there for 6 months of the year!
Thanks to Robyn, Paolo,  and the team from Villa Branca, for a most memorible time and for looking after us all so beautifully."
