Let our Bucket List Concierge™ Team plan your dream vacation now!
Hi Nancy and Tony, The trip to Italy was simply wonderful in all respects. We loved everything you arranged - hotels, tours, transportation, everything. One of these day, maybe we'll have a chance to tell you in person just how wonderful it all was. We especially loved the tour of Tuscany with a fantastic lunch (and wine) and the cooking class (and more wine) and several wonderful meals at restaurants with (you guessed it) -- wine! We managed to squeeze in a boat ride to Capri which was a very nice short trip. When we first started talking with you, we had a hunch that you would put together an itinerary that matched everything we wanted. And you did. We can't thank you enough. We had talked about doing the trip to Italy for so many years. This trip was a dream come true, thanks to you. John and Tami

Hi Nancy! Everything is great here in Santorini! We have had a great time so far! Thanks! Liz
Hi Tony and Nancy. Bryan and I want to thank you for sending the memory stick [loaded with pics from our Croatia cruise] which we received last week and have looked at parts of it. I was surprised to see so many of my pics shared with you. I guess you liked them.

Hi Nancy, Just about everyone has returned to the US from our Rhine River adventure and I wanted to let you know the trip overall was wonderful. The cruise itself was great and we had a truly enjoyable time with the 'Group of 18'. Thanks for all the work you did to assemble all the various pieces of the pie. I know it got pretty convoluted at times, but almost everything fell into place in the end. We've even talked about doing another trip in a couple of years--maybe an Alaska cruise (much simpler of course) and will touch base with you and Tony when the time comes. Rich

Nancy, I have a wonderful warm and fuzzy feeling when I think back about the trip to France. Marion and I loved it from the hotels to the restaurants, the scenery, the people and of course Emerald. Skip
Nancy/Tony, The trip [to France] was fabulous! After we left you in Leon, all the logistics worked out well to Paris and Normandy. Paris hotel was great. Didn't top the Sofitel you put us in Prague, but it was really nice. Nice rooms, great A/C, lockable safe, free breakfast, and very convenient to everything. Thanks for putting together this great trip for us. Sincerely, Maggie and Ben
Good morning, Nancy! I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how grateful both Fr Tyler and I were for all that you did to make our trip convenient and enjoyable. The accommodations were terrific and we had no major hang-ups to speak of. It wasn’t until I got there and talked with other members of the group that I realized you had been arranging these specialized trips for all the members of our party and that was no small accomplishment. I certainly will recommend you to others looking for help with travel plans and will be in touch again myself the next time I plan to travel internationally. Thanks again and have enjoy the rest of this beautiful summer! Best, Fr David

Dear Nancy, I would like to offer my gratitude for your commitment in making our travels through Europe such an wonderful experience. I appreciate the extra time you offered in making the many pieces of our trip a reality. Father David and I had a great time. Venice was wonderful! I also very much enjoyed Amsterdam. I look forward to working with you again in the future. In Gratitude, Father Bandura

Lisa and I had a PHENOMENAL time in Italy!!! It totally exceeded our expectations -- which were high! Our time in Rome on our own was perfect. By the way, the food tour Lisa mentioned to you was fantastic; we would highly recommend it.Our Collette group was so much fun. There were 22 of us and no trouble makers or stragglers! I think we have made some friends for life. We got to do and see so much. It was truly about the most beautiful place I have ever been. We even had lovely suites in two of the hotels but didn't spend much time there!. The trip home was exhausting! Next time, I would like to try to avoid the connection in Paris. Wow! But ironically the worst line was security back in Atlanta. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean. Bottom line was we didn't miss a flight and we (along with all our luggage) made it home! Thank you for all you did for us. All your advice and planning proved to be extremely helpful and accurate. Feel free to use us as references!!! We can't wait to have you handle our next trip... maybe Poland!! We've heard great things about Poland. Bob and Lisa B

Karl and I wanted to send a very special “thank you” from Montana. We thoroughly enjoyed our first cruise. It was a wonderful trip and we appreciated all of your assistance in making it happen for us – and for making it so painless! Everything was beyond our expectations and we hope to put more cruises on our “bucket list.” We want you to know that all of your efforts were, not only appreciated, but very effective! Have a great holiday season. “Smiles” From Karl and Sue S

Thank you for everything Nancy & Tony. Your particular selections for this Italian adventure 'appetizer' trip have been simply outstanding ... and have wet our appetite for more! J&S
- Thank You
Nancy, All is going very well. Flight - flawless. Tuscany - great intro; car a major plus! Florence - the perfect second course. Venice - l'acqua alta on final night! Tomorrow - train to Como for two night; relax & reflect ...then back to Milan for night of (16th). Milan - Il Teatro alla Scala - icing on cake PS. Alberto Gallia particularly nice; we were upgraded to quasi-suite. Did you know? Tonight, a new Lamborghini parked in front. Carol now wants to trade in Honda, but finally agreed to compromise: as soon as we return I'm buying her a new lamb. More soon, All good wishes, Jon & Carol Providence Forge, Virginia

OMG, the cooking class was a blast! I'll have to say that we had our share of vino, so the driver was an excellent idea..... the class was a highlight of this trip. Thank you for suggesting it. We also met the owner and his mother, Maria. She's quite a character and provided us with much entertainment. We got to keep the aprons!

Paulette, Providence Forge, VA
Nancy, We are certainly enjoying our [villa] stay in Umbria! We've played in the pool a few times, but have ventured out just about every day visiting the local areas and vineyards, and doing some shopping. The girls ventured out on their own the other day to Deruta, while the guys played golf at some mountain course. We (the girls) had a great time with a personal tour of the oldest Majolica factory in Italy. Their work is just exquisite. While wandering in and out of the shops in the town, one of the owners took us to his workshop and showed us how he makes his pottery. He was a very nice man, and he insisted on kissing us all the European way (on both cheeks). Each day is an adventure....today the__ and __went back to Assisi (we've been before), so we headed for Bavagna (a beautiful little town; so enjoyable) for their medieval festival. Stopped at a winery along the way and had a personal tour! No one else was there! Of course, we bought some wine, too. Ciao, Paulette

On behalf of the Virginia Symphony Society of Greater Williamsburg, thank you for the support you provided to the Society's 2014 Gala Benefit "Symphonique - New York in Spring!" held on April 26, 2014. The annual fundraising event was the most successful we have had to date. It will enable the VSSGW to present a check for $60,000 to the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. We appreciated your work with the Society to provide the travel vouchers for several of the packages that we auctioned at the gala. Thank you for supporting our effort to raise money for this excellent orchestra. Sincerely yours, Lara Overy, President, VSSGW

“Spend a few minutes with Nancy describing your travel ideas and you immediately are captured by a combination of energy, enthusiasm and commitment to exceed your expectations. Nancy embraces the possibilities, captures all the details and presents an array of options that allow multiple combinations with your travel budget. Her knowledge and personal travel experience guided us through our bucket list destination to Costa Rica incorporating a cornucopia of awesome food, fun, sights and diversity to satisfy our individual “lists” without requiring days to recuperate when we returned. Attnetion to customer service before and after our travel was A+”

“Three times we have utilized Nancy “Smiles” Cassano as our travel consultant. The first time was an escorted trip to Ireland with another couple. All four of us had a fabulous tour with a group of 40 people. The Irish tour company met all our desires. The second time was October 2012 when Nancy connected us and another couple on an independent tour of Italy which was to include the flight, a rental car and hotels for 9 days. Unfortunately a week before we were to fly, my husband required emergency surgery. Fortunately we had purchased trip insurance. Nancy assisted us in filling out the paperwork to get a refund on the trip and every penny was returned within a month WOW! The third time Nancy consulted us was on an escorted trip to Italy scheduled for September 2013 to which we are looking forward. Thank you, Nancy, for all the hard work you do in helping us plan our travels.”

“Nancy booked an Alaska 13 day cruise and tour for our large group of 34. She has the knowledge of Alaska and the experience to help each couple personalize their own interests to make the trip a truly rewarding experience for each of us. Nancy is a pro and I would book through her again.”

"Trying to plan a Disney trip I decided to contact a travel agency. I couldn't have made a better selection than by choosing Nancy Cassano from Go Bucket List Travel. Nancy took care of all our arrangements from our plane reservations, our stay at Disney Resort and any concerns I might have had before the trip. Our trip was certainly magical and stress free thanks to Nancy at Go Bucket List Travel. We'll use Nancy again and would recommend her to anyone taking a vacation."

"When we decided it was time for a trip to see some other countries, we called Nancy for help. We explained that we were thinking about England, Scotland and maybe Ireland and would be traveling with our son and daughter-in-law. She helped us set up a fabulous trip and got us a wonderful deal. We toured Scotland with a very small group, staying at B&Bs, then flew to Ireland where we had a modern villa and a car so that we could take our time and see whatever we wanted. The side-trips that Nancy recommended were great. Nancy’s advice was right on; she listened to what we wanted and helped us plan all the details. Nancy made sure that everything was set up before-hand so the trip was very smooth. We highly recommend Nancy. We will certainly be using her for our future vacation."

We have had three fabulous trips planned by Nancy. Our Caribbean cruise was well organized and fun as was our tour out west to see the canyons. Nancy was super and helped us with everything. The only worries we had were what to pack! This summer she is helping us plan a month in France. We would highly recommend Nancy for any travel ideas you may have.
