We are planning a trip to Italy this fall and didn't know where to begin. While searching online, I came across Travel Charm. The Itineraries are wonderful. All the stress around planning is gone. The itineraries detail how to travel (train, car, etc) with times to visit and suggested places to shop. Places to purchase tickets are also provided. Be sure to check out the one-day Itineraries for Orvieto and Cortona. I also really liked the 14 Day Italian Itinerary. I am looking forward to the trip with the itineraries as my guide. I highly recommend.

Thank you for the day out on the Art Escape Tour, I really enjoyed the whole trip. To take the time out seeing art galleries with like minded people is an enjoyable pastime. I look forward to going back sometime soon with Rob and especially showing him John Wilson's gallery, which I know he would love.

What a wonderful day! Never doubt your organisational skills... you held the group together so professionally all day. I was impressed with your program and I know it fulfilled everyone's expectations. I have no doubt the overseas trips will be equally as good.

I decided to go on the Painting in Italy Trip because I had never been to Europe and thought it would be a great opportunity to see a place I had always dreamed of with like minded people who enjoyed art, history and nature as much as me.
I would recommend this trip to my friends and colleagues because it is not a rushed trip. There was plenty of time to relax and explore each place and embrace their way of life.
The best thing I liked about the Painting in Italy trip was staying in a place for six days or more to fully experience that area. The accommodation was good and in a great position to access the points of interest nearby.

It was such a wonderful day yesterday that I wanted to say a big thank you to you! I felt so “looked after” and pampered!
The great company, the food, the detail of organisation! Wow. I was expecting it to be good but it far exceeded my expectation! Right down to the detail of you supplying the sunscreen so I could sit and relax in the full sun for hours, to you even bringing me a bottle of water.
Of course the big things were great too, like the amazing painting lesson, exquisite morning tea and lunch, and wine served in glass wear and the flow of the entire day from pick up to drop off! I will be promoting your services and hopefully joining you on another trip soon!
I read you philosophy behind your business Travel Charm & I would like to say… Congratulations… ” Mission accomplished!”

I met Cindy Reid a couple of years ago at a women’s networking lunch and was quite interested in hearing about her business Travel Charm. Last year when I was thinking about taking my art business to another level of travelling and teaching art on tour I remembered Cindy and how impressed I was with her business of providing unique group tours.
I was looking for someone who would be good at organising and someone who I could trust and feel comfortable working with. I am very pleased that from the first meeting my instincts about Cindy have proven correct and with Cindy’s expert and professional help I have been able to grow my business to include day painting tours to local vineyards and painting trips to Europe.
Cindy‘s attention to the finest detail is something that I admire and I know that any tour organised by her will go as smoothly as possible. I look forward to a long association with Cindy’s Travel Charm and anticipate some fabulous destinations for my art business now and in the future.

Thank you ever so much for organising such a beautiful holiday for us. It was a very restful trip - exactly what we were looking for. I cannot believe the amount I slept on the first few nights… Your choice of destination and accommodation was very special indeed. We had delightful hosts. They looked after us beautifully and upgraded us to a 2 bedroom unit on level one, which had spectacular views at no extra cost. Channers on Norfolk is a beautiful place to stay.

I just wanted to give Cindy from Travel Charm a little plug today. I have just been on her Melbourne trip and I must say it was really, really fun. It has been ages and ages since I've done anything this nice for myself and I had an absolute blast. So I just want to say any woman that really needs a bit of 'me time', I can highly recommend Cindy at Travel Charm. You won't do yourself wrong. Cheers!

Thank you Cindy, you are awesome for doing such a great job on our trip to Darwin and Katherine and then Kimberleys to Broome. Looking so forward to it all again. A huge thank you for your wonderful job.

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the outstanding service and hard work you have put into co-ordinating our trip to New York. You get a definite ‘wow’ from me - your passion for providing a unique experience certainly comes through as well as incorporating my specific interests. All my questions were answered in a timely manner and you checked in with me frequently to make sure I didn't have any concerns. I am grateful for all your help. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your business to my friends.

In September 2010 I met up with Cindy in Athens, Greece for a 10 night holiday. I can't say enough about Cindy's organisation and planning of the trip from the accommodation in Athens and Santorini, which was amazing, to the booking of a private tour down to Cape Sounion, to sightseeing the Acropolis. Cindy organised the ferry transport from Athens to Santorini and a day cruise which took us swimming in the beautiful blue Mediterranean and volcanic waters, watching the gorgeous sunset. It was AWESOME!!! I could not have asked for a better well planned holiday.
