Was thrilled to read your post! My husband and I are booked for the same trip and are indeed looking for others to join up with to share tours. Brett and I are in our early 40's and have been married for two years. He is an executive for a automotive services company and I am a homemaker. We recently moved to Dallas, TX and have both traveled quite a bit. I have gotten quotes from "Rome Connection" and "All Around Italy." Would like to make plans with you and compare notes on the tour companies. I will e-mail you separately with my phone number, so that we can connect and start making plans.
