Testimonials

I actually found Andi on the internet and had her plan a trip to Italy for me and my husband last year. I was so impressed with the services that she provided that I once again took advantage of her services to plan our Ireland trip this year. What Andi does is take some of the worry and stress away so that you can get to your destination and enjoy. She plans out everything from car rentals, airport transfers, hotels, sightseeing, and dining. She not only gives you personal opinions, but researches other recommendations. She is very thorough in every way. I highly recommend!

Andi created the most magical and exciting trip for me. From the bustling city of Rome to the relaxed countryside of Cortona to the breathtaking Amalfi coast–every bit of it was incredible. Andi’s knowledge of Italy, its customs, and the people set her apart. She has extensive knowledge about travel in Italy, which not only save time and money, it maximizes the tourist’s experience. I am looking forward to my next trip!

We just got back from a 2 week vacation in Italy planned by Andi Brown of Once in a Lifetime Travel. And I can tell you without a doubt that it was a once in a lifetime experience! From my very first phone call with Andi I knew the planning was going to be fun. We had many laughs. She is AMAZING!!! She thought of every single detail and our trip went off without a hitch. It was the perfect mix of busy and relaxing. Honestly I couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. The book that arrived had everything in it that we would need. She is so organized and thinks of everything. We sang her praises every day. All of her suggestions were spot on and so much fun! I really can’t say enough good things about this wonderful woman. Grazie Mille Andi!!!!!! I can’t wait to do another trip with you!!!

The one thing that you must do before your next vacation is contact Andi Brown. Andi owns and operates Once in a Lifetime Travel, and truly she offers the most unique advice you will ever receive from a travel expert. Why? Because she is an ultimate researcher who considers a traveler’s wants as well as needs. Her research is meticulous, and she will not suggest a destination, lodging, or dining that she has not experienced herself without issuing a caveat.

On my recent trip to Italy, Andi provided the most memorable experiences that included a professional tour of Pompeii, boat trips, visits to small towns, and every detail clear down to train tickets that were included in a small notebook complete with details of the trip. She introduced us to many of her Italian friends, and they soon became our friends, too. Those people were truly the heart of our tour.

Andi has an innate ability to respect and interact with all ages; she understands the power of listening. Her responses are timely, and she is very well organized as well as flexible. And the bonus? She’s a nice lady with a good sense of humor. Call Andi!

Planning a memorable trip is harder than you think in the digital age. The avalanche of information available to view online is overwhelming and it is often difficult to distinguish between hype and authenticity. Here is where Once in a Lifetime Travel is worth every penny. They do the planning, provide insider connections and advice and relieve you of some of the risks inherent in booking a trip to Italy. They were able to arrange private tours, parking privileges and even local amenities I would never have found. Under Andi Brown’s guidance our trip to southern Italy could not have been better. She was attentive to detail, responsive to inquiries and willing to listen to what we wanted and expected on our trip. Highly recommended!

My husband and I just returned from Italy where we traveled with our friends, Beth and Steve. We had an amazing adventure that we can attribute to Andi Brown of Once in a Lifetime Travel. She spoke with us in the beginning to get a feel for what type of experience we wanted, and where we would like to go. She planned the most diverse, well rounded experience for the 4 of us!!! Booked us with amazing hosts/hostesses who made you really feel welcome and at home. We booked a food tour through her that was a gastronomic, fun, progressive evening in Roma neighborhood. We toured a working wood shop and winery another day in Tuscany. It was beyond amazing to have tour of 300 year old chateau by the owner, who was not only very pleasant and knowledgeable about her grapes and olives, but also made and served us a classic Italian lunch in her lovely home.


I could go on and on about the wonderful tour guides we had a ALL our tours. We also had many days on our own to explore. Andi will make it whatever you want. Custom tailored to your desires.


Andi is very reasonable for what she does. I/we literally did not have to book/plan any aspect of our trip other than what we wanted to do and go. Andi booked every flight, train, driver, tour, seamlessly. We were mailed a beautiful, thoughtful, custom
book about a month prior to our departure. We used it daily to see where we needed to be. It took so much of the logistic planning off of our plate. I guarantee you will not be sorry if you use Andi. She is pleasant, professional, easy to work with, and a beautiful person. She is worth every cent and more….

I took a dream of a trip to Italy with Andi . Looking back , if I didn’t go with Andi, I would have not seen as many places as I saw and had the experiences I had with the local sights and tastes. Thank You!
