Individualized Travel Planning Clients
Julia C. — Boulder, CO
Thanks to Chandi’s expert advice, our trip to Italy was magical. Who would’ve thought that our group of 12 could get everything we wanted? It really is possible, thanks to Chandi’s patience, wealth of knowledge, and ability to hear between the lines of what we were looking for. We ended up in beautiful, comfortable, unforgettable accommodations; we ate spectacular food; we had drivers when we needed them (which was much more often than we had thought); and everything we scheduled went smoothly. Chandi’s detailed instructions took the difficulty out of traveling (down to knowing what kind of suitcases to bring so we could get off and on the train.) I loved our trip and would go back in a heartbeat. Kudos to Chandi for making this foreign land seem like home.

Our trip to Italy was absolutely perfect, Chandi, and we couldn’t have done it without you! Because of your knowledge, expertise and planning, our two week trip throughout Italy (from Venice, to Florence/Tuscany, to the Cinque Terre, to Rome) couldn’t have been any better. Your hotel and restaurant recommendations were perfect and the train transportation from each city was smooth. Thanks again, Chandi. I have already given your name to friends and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Barbara C. — Golden, CO
My husband and I have traveled to Italy on three occasions over the last several years and we’ve always chosen Chandi’s travel planning services. Chandi’s ability to recommend top quality restaurants, accommodations and sights within our budget is always exact. Our last trip to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with our grown children was the most memorable, complete with renewal vows on gondolas in a Venetian canal!
Kathy B. — Pittsburgh, PA
Thank you so much for all your patience with us first time Italy tourists. Your insight into the hotels, transportation, tours, and restaurants was truly invaluable…. you attended to every little detail. We are more than 100% pleased with your services and will highly recommend you to both first time, and returning Italy travelers.
Leeann I. — Denver, CO
We had never been to Italy and I actually had never been to Europe so we really didn’t know anything about traveling there. Chandi asked a lot of questions about the ages of our kids, our interests, etc. She did an excellent job of putting together our hotels, the locations and yet she was always respectful of our budget. The time we spent in each city was good as well as the tours she recommended. We had a trip of a life time thanks to Chandi!
Liz and Ed B.— Santa Cruz, CA
We have all spoken fondly of you and our Tuscany adventure since returning home. Our group of 10 so appreciated your effort. Julian was a delightful addition. His cooking lesson at the farmhouse was an absolute highlight of the week. Our visit to the Graham Greene Castle and meeting his descendants was a unique and special experience. And how great was it to end the week with a truffle hunt climbing through fairytale woods with an adorable dog leading the way. Given the large group, it was nice that we were able to choose individual activities such as; walk over to Pienza for a long lunch, spend the day at a spa, take off on hikes, go to the Prada outlet or just sit outside in comfortable chairs overlooking the soft Tuscan hills and do nothing. Thank you for organizing this memorable trip.
Chandi, your services and personal attention made all the difference between a cookie cutter event and something truly special! From the perfect weather to the stunning setting, the warmth of Don Carlo, the friendliness of all the waiters, the amazing tenor and the great jazz band, the beautiful wedding cake, the food, the flowers, the great wine from the local vineyard, the help of you and Anne —everything was amazing. It seems rather strange to refer to one’s own wedding as a fairy tale but that’s what we had. We went into it expecting a simple, charming Italian wedding and ended up with a once in a life time dream event—unbelievable and fabulous. It exceeded both of our expectations and the guests are still raving about it as the best wedding they ever attended.
Kristen R. — Lakewood, WA
I looked at a dozen Italian Wedding planners on the web once I figured out that it would have been impossible for me to handle the paperwork alone, and I’m so glad that I chose Sogni Italiani! I would do it again in a second! You made an overwhelming pile of red tape very simple and easy. Believe me, you earn your fee in this task alone. I kept thinking, “This would have been impossible to do on my own!” Then you arranged the hotel, flowers, photographer, carriage ride, wedding lunch, and set up that really special tour of Villa Maiano for us. I’m picky and frugal, and you arranged everything to perfection and for an incredibly reasonable price!
I’m a very tough critic, and you are one of the few people I’ve worked with who didn’t fall short of expectation in any area. I appreciated your prompt and comprehensive replies to every question, your honesty and candor, and going beyond the call of duty in every aspect of the planning. The hotel staff was superb, and the wedding lunch that you arranged with them for us on the terrazzo was sublime down to the dessert, which was made by the hotel manager’s 90-year-old mother in law. It was HEAVEN. I love Florence! All Parisians should be sent there to learn hospitality! I still love France, but the people of Florence are the best.
How can I thank you enough Chandi? You made everything perfect!
Deirdre C. & Christian S. — New York, NY
Chandi, absolutely everything you coordinated for us was great! I have nothing but positive things to say about everything you planned. I don’t know if my words can express how thankful Christian and I are to have you plan our wedding. You are wonderful at what you do and it shows in everything you did for us. We could not have asked for our wedding to be more beautiful or memorable. My wedding day was exactly what I pictured it to be. Everything from the photographer to the flowers was wonderful. My entire family has been raving about you! Thank you doesn’t seem to say enough!
Kevin L. — Bloomington, IL
The whole week went off without a hitch. Without you there is no way we could have pulled this together. Over the holidays, the entire family was together for Christmas and we were finally able to reflect back on the entire event. The consensus was, it was one of the most memorable experiences for all of them – not just the wedding, but the getaway that you created for them in Rome.
Of course Jan and I could never have imagined it would all come together so wonderfully. It was a wedding, Jan told me later, she didn’t know she always wanted. It was perfect and we will never forget you for putting it all together. We have told people of our experience and they can’t believe it – hopefully they will call you. But, if I can ever act as a reference, please don’t hesitate to call. You are amazing Chandi. Best wishes to you in all your future ventures, and as soon is the baby is born and we are back to European travel again, you will be the first we call. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. Your fans forever.
Amy S. and Shawn D. — Houston, TX
Words cannot express the gratitude that Shawn and I feel for all of your help with our wedding. So, let me try my best to put into words how grateful we are.
One night I stopped at a bookstore and looked for some information on Weddings in Italy. I found a book and read it. At the back of the book there was a note about “Sogni Italiani” and a phone number. I contacted Chandi Wyant and from that day forward Shawn and I were so blessed and taken care of. It went from an idea to reality. Chandi, you helped make our dreams come true. You were there to answer every question and concern we had. You worked in such a timely manner and it seemed as if we were your only clients, but we knew we were not. Your dedication to us and to all of our wishes revealed the love you have for Italy and how much you want to enrich the lives of others with such a beautiful culture. Our wedding was like a fairy tale and it is a moment that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
You are a wonderful person and have an extraordinary wedding planning organization and we will never forget all that you did for us and we will hold you and Italy in our hearts forever. Thank you again Chandi for making our dreams come true!
Jeremy & Nicola C. — North East Lincolnshire, UK
We contacted many internet based wedding agents and from the very start Sogni Italiani stood above the rest for confidence, competence and genuine interest in us. From the outset they catered to our wishes, going out of their way to find just what we wanted. Chandi and her assistant worked with us tirelessly to choose a harbour castle by Lake Garda in the small town of Torri del Benaco. It was perfect, and to add to the excitement we were the first English couple to be married there!
The perfect day started with Nicola arriving at the castle by boat to applauding on-lookers. The romantic Italian civil service was held within the castle itself. Afterward, we felt like film stars as the photographer & videographer took us into the castle ramparts & grounds. It was an amazing occasion and the videographer created the most wonderful video that we cherish. We cannot recommend Sogni Italiani enough. We got the film star treatment at an extremely reasonable fee.
Danielle S. & Anthony S. — New York, NY
I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful and special day we had in Florence! It was beyond my expectations! The priest was so dear. The music and the tenor singer only added to make it perfect. The church was something out of time! Unbelievable and just darling. The photographer was a gem to work with. I am so happy you convinced me to get the photographer and thank you for the incredible deal. Between the people and the place, we could not have asked for anything better. Anthony did not understand how this was going to work out and I was a bit nervous myself but the day went so smoothly, you should be so proud of yourself! You pulled off another winner and in such little time during vacation season in Italy.
