"I found Merrion online after researching many travel consultants from several travel publications. I spoke with her by phone once and had several chats by email. I do admit I took a risk - I just had a very good feeling about her so after discussing various travel plans, I sent her a cheque. I have never once regretted that decision. Merrion is professional, remarkably experienced and connected throughout Italy. She is detailed, punctual and always available... in fact, we met her one day for lunch during our last trip and commented on how fun it would be to rent a yacht to explore Cinque Terre. Before lunch was even served, all the arrangements were all made for the next morning... it will always be one of our most treasured memories!

From details of car pick up and drop off, to every concierge making us feel special because of Merrion's relationships with hoteliers, to understanding our lifestyle and from fitting our trip around our values Merrion was truly invested in our happiness. We often received cute notes from her along the way with reminders and suggestions. 

During the past year and a half I have sent several friends and family members to Merrion... I'm now the most popular girl ever!! Truly, I've never heard one complaint or even a constructive criticism regarding Merrion. "
