Marnie Williamson / Travel Untethered / Virtuoso / September 2019
Hello Marine, I wanted to pass along some nice feedback from Patty Ackerman and Holly Ball and also to THANK YOU and your team for putting this together and dealing with a lot of emails and changes! Sounds like they had a great trip and give some useful feedback as well. Best, Marnie.
 
"I really loved the Chef’s Table - the food was delicious, the best wine we had on the trip and the company engaging.
The wine tour day - we did 3 - was very interesting w the best driver of our journey.  One day was enough - the wines are very similar in that region.
Les 5 Sens was a little too adventurous w it’s menu and I would not eat there again.
Villa Gallici was so beautiful we did not want to leave.
Hotel Napoleon had a terrific location and is lovely.  Very warm- in a good way.:rougir:
If I were to take this trip again I would rethink the Nice to Paris train ride.  It felt like a lost day.  Maybe fly Nice to Paris or Nice to JFK.
We also took a cooking class that was a blast - and I learned a lot.  If I find the link I will pass on.
Thank you for your help.  We had a wonderful time
Patty"
 
"Hi Marnie,
I loved all the hotels except the Perouse, especially Villa Gallici!  Excellent, excellent hotel.  The chef's table at Mirande and the cooking class with Chef Clemente were very memorable to me.  We just loved both of those events.  I also liked both Relais Christine and Napoleon Hotel.  Both very charming, although for me, the location of Relais Christine is better.
Additionally, the wine tour was fabulous, but I would build in a restaurant and have the driver tell people to bring water into the tastings and possibly bring some crackers?  The tastings are just that--they didn't not offer water or any food.  No big deal but just good to know.  Our driver on that trip, Davis, was outstanding.
As far as restaurants, I liked them all.  Le Safari in Nice stands out.  We ended up canceling at the Plungior because they could not take us later and we weren't hungry at 7.  But I did walk by and the place looked amaing!! We went to a lunch in Nice on the beach that was memorable.  The name was Castel.  Very good food.
Overall the trip was an A!! I will use you the next time we want high end travel.  Just a spectacular trip!!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Best,
Holly"
