[ - ] I know this is the wrong audience demographic - but does anyone have any recommendations for a tour company that would be good for a single woman in her late 60's to use to do a tour of Italy? Budget is probably mid to low range I suspect. I have the job of finding my MIL a tour, with absolutely no guidance about what she wants to see and an initial google revealed waaay to many options. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I used Kensington Tours when I took my 3 kids to Italy. It was $7500 per person for 12 days, 2 hotel rooms. I chose the 5 star option since it was probably going to be the last time I would be able to take all my kids on a trip like that at once. They booked all the hotels, train tickets and car service to and from the rail stations, had tours set up at the different locations. We did Rome, Florence, Sorrento/Capri/Pompeii, Milan and Venice. You can absolutely scale it down to your budget. [ Reply | More ]

I think you're on the right track, source-wise, but that pattern reminds me of bakery string or something. I order a lot of gifts from servv, which helps women in undeveloped sell their crafts. Many beautiful accessories -- might be worth a look. [ Reply | More ]

there are sections of many towns that are TT, even if the entire town is not. Greenwich is a perfect example, so is Summit. I don't think Ridgewood NJ is all that and certainly not more TT than Short Hills frankly or in the same tier as Madison, much as I like Madison. I adore Westport, but it's not in the same category as Greenwich or New Canaan, and frankly probbalt not higher than Darien. Bronxville is TT by any standards. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] NYC HS parents -- My younger DC didn't get into the city-wide G&T older DC attends. Younger DC is at a small, progressive private. Both DCs are doing well and love school. But when I look at what older DC was learning at the same grade, my younger is way behind. The teachers are so caring. Yet I worry that by the time DC gets to HS, DC will not be able to keep up. I'm thinking of applying to a more rigorous private, or trying for a local G&T (this is the last possible year). In your experience, does a challenging elementary school make a big difference for success in high school? DC loves school. I'm not sure what to do. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
