Testimonials from 2015 Course:

No words can describe what a fantastic and surreal butler course we had in Venice recently. It was the first course where we had both principals (Counts and Countesses) and students in the same class together, it was just such an incredible experience and a great success. Before class one could enjoy an excellent coffee made by the clubs butler Giuseppe on the balcony overlooking the Grand Canal, and during lunch explore the streets and canals and sample the delicious food.

We were honoured to meet, Mrs Jane Rylands and Mr Philip Rylands who runs the Peggy Guggenheim museum in Venice and gain some fascinating knowledge into this outstanding museum. During the course we gained invaluable insights into the world of Counts and Countesses and what their expectations are of service excellence.

January is definitely the best time to be in Venice as it is quiet and very reasonably priced as well and I am delighted to announce that we will be running our second course in Venice next year January 2016.
