We're in the midst of our VFR tour and I've been too busy to post much, but I wanted to report on the dynamics of our group, since there's an ongoing thread about a family feeling unwelcome on another tour. We're a family of three and couldn't have a more different experience.
This group bonded immediately, from the first meeting in Venice. There's a pretty good range of ages, families and singles, but everyone has gotten along wonderfully from the get-go. I can't see anyone who's been excluded or made to feel unwelcome. I can see coming away from this with a lot of new friends. I absolutely could not be happier with these people.
On to Rome, together!
