I am very very sorry that you have to close due to the coronavirus crisis. I went on your Sicily tour with Aldo and your Andalucia tour with Sean. The tours were unique in so many ways. Very special. I have just sent a contribution and hope that it will help in a small way.

Hello, we are so sad that you are closing as we thoroughly enjoyed your trip to southern Italy last May. We started in Naples and ended in Brindisi. Our guides name was Laura and I am not sure which Laura on your list of guides she was. Do you have a photo of the guides as we would like to send a gift to her and want to choose the right person?
Please provide this amount for the tour managers and Charleston staff from our Portugal tour refund. We are extremely sorry that you have to face this unfortunate situation. We have very much enjoyed spending time with you and are hopeful that we can do so again in the future.
Even though I’ve never met you, my heart dropped this morning as I read your email announcing your closing. With everything that is happening around the globe, it is daunting to say the least. I just want you both and Lisa to know that we, your customers, care about Amber Roads and appreciate all you have done to make our travel experiences the memories of a lifetime. I will keep each of you and you employees in my prayers as you make this difficult transition. I and my fellow travelers will be customer #1 should Lisa and other managers reopen Amber Roads down the road! I will make a contribution too in the hopes of keeping the flame burning for small group travel with Amber Road. We can’t lose the uniqueness of what you provide! Stay well, chin up and feel the love and gratitude coming from all of us!
This is a terrible time. We realize how difficult it is and how difficult it will continue to be for every person involved in this battle to exist with this virus all around us. We would like to leave a gift for Tiziana. I am sorry about your having to close the business down. A sad decision. God Bless. Stay safe and strong!
Amber I’m really sorry you’re closing but of course it’s understandable with the current circumstances. I would like to donate to Federica Wagner, a small token of my appreciation
I am sorry to hear that you will soon be out of work. Please accept this gift as a thank you for the help you have given us on each of out wonderful vacations. Each I time spoke to you, I felt like I was speaking to a family member. My prayer for you is that God will supply all your needs as you go through this time of your life.
We are so sorry that your company is closing due to the Coronavirus issues. We enjoyed our trip in 2018 with Tiziana and were looking forward to our trip to Umbria in September. Our planning and phone interactions with Lisa were always helpful and pleasant. The closing of your company is truly a loss to all. My wife and I would like to make donations that can be deducted from our deposit: to Tiziana and Lisa. We hope you will be able to revive the company again when the emergency passes and we can travel again.
Dismayed to hear the sad news – it must be devastating for you and your co-workers. The important thing is for you to stay HEALTHY. This too shall pass. Good luck in your future endeavours.
We just submitted a support contribution for Saverio Renda via your payment site. We traveled thru Sicily during the month of October 2017 with Saveiro and would like to help him and his family thru these difficult times..
This is the saddest news I have received and my heart hurts for you and your staff. We loved traveling with you and had planned more in the future. Your team has been like family to us.
My husband and I took our first Amber Road Tour in 2016 to Lucca, Genova, and Cinque Terre with Tiziana. It was magical! That led to our next tour with Federica to Milan and Lombardia, and we had hoped to take many more of your tours in the future. We can’t say enough about how special these experiences were and how competent and caring Tiziana and Federica were. We are saddened to hear that you must close such a wonderful operation. We appreciate your supplying a way for us to help in some small way. We wish all the best to you, your family, and your Amber Road family.
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of lives and business in Italy, and in particular, Amber Road Tours. We hope you will be able to offer tours again in the future, so please keep us posted!
In particular, we are grateful for Lisa’s efforts and want her to know that we would like to work with her again if and when she lands back in the travel tour business. We will miss Amber Road.
We are so sorry for everything you have undergone recently and hope the very best possible outcome for you, your employees, and your company. Please let us know when you are up and running again in any country. We have heard so many good things about you, and we want to enjoy a tour with you.
I am saddened by the pandemic, the threat to our public health, and by the impact this has had on your company. I much appreciate the personal assistance and advice I have received from Lisa Sample In arranging this trip and for a previous trip to Tuscany. Lisa, you have great communication skills and I am certain you will land on on your feet. I look forward to the reinvention of Amber Road Tours in the future.
We are devastated that events cpmpletely outside your control have brought your organisation to its knees. As you are aware, we have had 4 wonderful journeys with Amber Road. The poignant scene of the vacant square at Milano is symbolic of what I suspect will happen in many other countries.
We wish you well in the future and hope that your guides (Mariaelana, Fredericka and Anna and Lucas in the past) will also fall on their feet. Thank you for opening up a fabulous part of the world to us over the years.
It is so sad to read your email.
Seems we all have so many challenges with the pandemic in the coming months.
To you all at Amber I wish you to stay safe & healthy & when the Coronavirus has ended you are able to get back to business as usual & continue to be very successful as you have been for so long.
Best wishes to the team
Firstly I am so so sorry to hear the news about your operations. This is just heartbreaking to hear and I know you would all be dealing with this with a heavy heart. The world is going to hurt with all of this and you are not alone. We are thinking of you.
I am so sorry that your business Amber Roads is closing. I have been on 2 trips: one to Andalucia in 2017 and in Sept 2019 to southern Italy Puglia. I was due to join you again for a trip to Croatia and Bosnia in Sept.2020. No one saw this epidemic coming. It’s devastating for Italy in particular and I grieve for those stricken with the virus. I do hope that Lisa is able to revive the business once this epidemic has played out and the world gets back on its axis. Please convey my warmest wishes to Federica. What a lovely and talented woman! I wish her well.
We were completely sad and sorry to hear that you had to make the decision to close the wonderful Amber Roads Tours! This must have been a heart-wrenching decision for you.
Tony and I enjoyed very, very much every tour that we had with you and your colleagues and to see all your hard work conclude in this fashion is truly awful. However, as Tony has just said to me, you have done your “exit” with the same class as you did everything else …first class all the way.
I have had several interactions with Lisa Sample and have found her to be most pleasant and always professional; we shall watch for a re-emergence of the Amber Road brand under her leadership.
We are saddened by the toll this dreadful illness is taking on your lovely country and our prayer for you both is that you and those who are important to you will be spared and that you enjoy a happy and healthy retirement in the years ahead.
Thank you so very much for all the lovely memories that we have because of our Amber Road journeys!
I am so sorry for all at the company because of this global pandemic and I understand what a difficult decision it must have been to cancel, but it is the right one. Our hearts are particularly saddened when we hear of the plight of Italy, which is one of the most wonderful places in the world.
My sister and I are absolutely heartbroken at the news. We so love Amber Road, the staff, tours, tour leaders, etc., having taken 4 I believe, and signed up for our 5th.
I am really sad that Amber Road is closing. I think you are an amazing company with impeccable integrity. I have taken 3 tours with Amber Road and I will continue if you decide to come back.
Best wishes to Sonya, Jonathan and all the staff.
I am so sad to hear that you will be closing. I took 3 trips with Amber Road. And I so enjoyed the journeys. The Tour Managers were awesome…. so knowledgeable , patient and fun.
I sincerely hope that the company and its people will reinvent itself. This is a truly special tour company that I am sure can make a great come back.
