Gwynne Chafer

La Crosse, Wisconsin Travel Agent

Italy Destination Specialist

"Over 20 years as a travel professional, to help you create the perfect getaway." My niche is selling Italy and as a Travel Leaders Certified Travel Specialist, I have visited Italy numerous times and have experienced it from north to south and from east to west: I really enjoy selling the different areas of the country. From the archaic ruins of Rome, to the hidden beauty of Venice and from the ancient streets of Pompeii to the medieval walls of Assisi ... I have experienced Italy!

It is hard to describe the feeling of standing in the Colosseum, where so many years ago, the gladiators fought for their lives, or visiting the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, where Michelangelo (considered one of the greatest artists the world has ever seen) is entombed.  I have also visited some of the "off the beaten path" areas of Italy, where I have enjoyed cooking classes, truffle hunting, soaking in the thermal springs of Saturnia, drives through the backroads of Tuscany, and a leisurely lunch with Ercole Moroni, a leading international florist and creative designer.  

In addition, I have visited many other destinations worldwide, including having walked on the Great Wall of China; kissing the Blarney Stone in Ireland; I have stood at the 'Gateway to Purgatory' in Poland as I toured Auschwitz and Birkenau Concentration Camps; and found myself amazed beyond words at the animal life (close-up) in the Galapagos Islands.  I have also traveled to many other areas of Asia, including India (several times), Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Cambodia.  A visit to India will truly change your life.  

Traveling the world allows us to gain insight into different cultures, religions and food, as well as explore ancient ruins, natural wonders and historic landmarks that most people only read about.  I pride myself in my attention to detail, and the knowledge I have gained throughout my years of traveling.  By working with me, we will do more than create a vacation, we will create an experience, and one that you will never forget.

"Hi, Gwynne. We had an awesome trip and have you to thank for it. You were so 'on top' of things and kept us advised of everything. On the trip, I heard horror stories from other couples that didn't have the neat experience we had with you. It was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you for all you did to make this a very memorable trip." Jan H. "Hello, Gwynne. Everything went like clockwork. Thank you so much for everything you did to make our trip so wonderful. Your expertise and organizational skills were greatly appreciated." Richard R. "Gwynne - Because of you, we were able to quickly turn what could have been a not-so-good vacation into a GREAT vacation. I will be recommending you to all my friends!" Peggy M.

Magnificent 50th Anniversary family trip

Reviewed By LJ - Genoa, Wisconsin | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Gwynne was very accommodating in planning a rather complex family trip for 14 people, 5 of whom live overseas. All of Gwynne's arrangements went off without a hitch.
We are totally satisfied and highly recommend Gwynne's services. We'll use her again.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Fantastic trip to Italy

Reviewed By Carolitaly - Appleton WI | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My husband and I wanted to travel to Italy but did not want to take a group tour. Neither my husband or I speak Italian and we live in Appleton, WI. Gwynne was wonderful to work with. Everything was arranged via phone, e-mail or text. It was so easy and Gwynne kept us up to date and fully informed. We would never been able to have such a unique and tailored trip without her help. She was fantastic to work with and really knew the area. We traveled on our own from Rome to Florence and ended in Venice. We had no problems and our hotels and excursions where perfect. She even set up a contact person in Italy that was always available if we had any questions. I can not say enough good things about our trip and Gwynne is the reason we had such a great time. Thank you Gwynne.
