I and any contributing or guest writers adhere to this disclosure policy.

Real reviews

I want to give true, honest reviews and only the things I think will enhance my readers’ experience on the site. The majority of my posts are independent reviews and comments.  Occasionally, I am asked to attend events or to review products, restaurants, hotels or other, but this does not guarantee coverage on the website.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are personal opinions and experiences of my own (or of the contributing authors).   Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Sponsorship & Promotion

I sometimes accept forms of monetized advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation or commissions from affiliate programs. I abide by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.  The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. Organizations that may have an impact on the content of this site:

    • Tours booked via Viator.com
    • Hotels booked via Bookings.com
    • Banner ads managed via Google.com
    • Tours booked via LakeComoFoodTours.com
    • Tours booked via ContextTravel.com
    • Links via the Viglink affiliate network

If I endorse a product or service, it’s because I believe it will be of use to my readership.

Why disclose?

I believe the reader should get real, honest information. As a user myself, I don’t like wasting time and I don’t think my readers do either. If I promote a product or service, it’s because I believe it will be of use.
