Testimonials

“If you’re interested in going to the spectacular, delightful, delectable and historical country of Italy — don’t ask a boring person or one tied to a desk! Rather, consult with a wildly exciting person who can talk to you about this inimitable country because she loves every inch of the land and has explored it and enjoyed it with gusto. She knows the shopping and restaurants (oh my, did I mention the food!) On top of all of that, Italy is a thoroughly Catholic country with riches and saints and miracles and churches and art that other countries can only dream of. Ask a person who is devoutly Catholic and has  researched, studied, prayed and touched the sacred throughout this stunning land. In other words, ASK TERESA!”

“I made my first visit to Italy on a pilgrimage in the Fall of 2018. It was wonderful thanks to Teresa Tomeo’s incredible knowledge of Italy’s cultural & spiritual landmarks. Her attention to detail in planning the trip provided us maximum time to explore and appreciate each stop along the way. I learned so much about famous and not so famous places & people from Teresa & the local guides she knows. For anyone considering a trip to Italy, I strongly recommend turning to Teresa for her expertise and infectious love for that amazing country.”

— Mary Dudley, South Carolina

 

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul” wrote John Muir. Travel shouldn’t mean travail. Let Teresa Tomeo sweat the details so you can savor the richness that is Italy. For over two decades Teresa has shared her passion for Italy with millions of television, radio and podcast listeners. Now she turns that experience and love over to you. Let her imbue your trip with personal care, cultural depth, joyful humor and openness to Italy’s rich spiritual heritage. Travel with Teresa “in your pocket” and watch recreation become re-creation.”

“It’s hard to say what is more impressive, Teresa’s love of Italy or her knowledge of its history, people, customs, and culture, but one is for certain, when you travel with T, you experience everything to the Nth degree and leave loving the “Motherland” almost as much as she does! She has a contagious passion for everything Italian—the food and wine, art and architecture, churches and scenery, fashion and design, and most especially, the sales! When it comes to getting the best in Italy for the best price, T knows the ropes!”

— Kelly Wahlquist, Minnesota

“Italian leather, culinary delights, deep Catholic insight, prayerful encounters, vineyards and coastlines, Teresa Tomeo knows all the Italian treasures! As a second-generation Italian and devoted Catholic, Teresa will take you on a trip of a lifetime. About three years back, I joined Teresa and 75 other lovely ladies on a pilgrimage to Assisi, Rome, Siena, Loreto, and Tuscany. Along the way, we were entertained by her hilarious Italian antidotes, inspired by her Catholic teachings, filled with boundless grace, and taken on many behind the scenes locations. A highlight for me included Mass at the grave of St. Peter below the Cathedral and a visit to St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s home away from home in Italy. With Teresa, you not only gain a very knowledgeable travel guide but a friend and beloved sister in Christ as well. If you’re hoping to go to Italy, then I say, “go with T!” Enjoy!”

“If Italy has a soul, then Teresa Tomeo embodies it. If you can’t be with her on a journey through this land of beauty and miracles, at least avail yourself of her guidance for the experience of a lifetime.”

“I have had the pleasure of traveling with Teresa Tomeo on 5 different pilgrimages, 3 in her beloved Italy (or the Motherland as she likes to refer to it) and am soon to embark on a 6th pilgrimage. I love the way Teresa ties her faith and her love of the Catholic Church into the places we visit and offers a unique perspective on each destination she brings us to. In addition to her knowledge of the Catholic faith, Teresa is also well-traveled and knowledgeable about many aspects of travel in Italy. She has wonderful tips on the best restaurants and shopping but also is able to refer you to hidden gems that many tourists would overlook. I would highly recommend Teresa’s pilgrimages to any Catholic couples or Catholic women looking for an enriching faith experience!”

— Joyce Meyer, Michigan

 

“Su and I have had the extraordinary privilege to travel with Teresa throughout Italy on two occasions. Her passion for Italy and it’s culture, beauty and, of course, the food and wine, is infectious. She will take you to those lesser known and even lesser traveled gems that you would not often hear about or even dream to visit. “T” we look forward to our next trip with you and Dominick. God bless!”

— Bill and Su Moran, Washington

 

“Teresa Tomeo is a fantastic tour host!  I have been blessed to be on pilgrimage to Italy three times now!  She loves the country, the culture, the food, the Catholic traditions that abound. . . and she loves the wine! Did I mention that she knows great places for shopping? If you have never been to Italy, Teresa is the most knowledgeable guide you could ever hope to find! Buon viaggio!”
