The route was well-chosen, with many outstanding sights to be seen each day.
We very much enjoyed our short trip with you, and appreciated your quick and personal service when we contacted you. The route was well-chosen, with many outstanding sights to be seen each day. The hotel accommodation was good and we appreciated the central location in Sibiu and Alba Iulia. Our guide, Stefan, was first rate. He was personable and flexible. He also had excellent English, was passionate about Romania, and imparted his extensive knowledge clearly and extensively.

We had a very enjoyable holiday in Stockholm
We had a very enjoyable holiday in Stockholm,a very good hotel in all respects. The lady who took us for our introductory tour was very good and told us much about Sweden and the City and we both enjoyed the Vasa and History museums. We did the boat trip around the islands which was interesting and a real eye-opener. The flights and the transfers were on time and comfortable. Thank you for organising another great trip, if all goes well we will be back!

You did a very good job of setting this up, directing us to interesting and varied places
Our trip went very well. Everything was a highlight but I think the best part were the guides. They were so knowledgeable, friendly, willing to answer all our questions. Marina would be my best friend if I lived in Finland. Ivo, Erlens, and, Linas were great too. The bike tour guides were fantastic also. All of them were passionate about their country and very knowledgeable about what we were seeing. Through them we felt we got to know the country, the history, the people and them too. Everyone was precisely on time. I think you did a very good job of setting this up, directing us to interesting and varied places: a hike through the bog, castles and palaces, cute towns, etc. The hotels were great. Friendly staff and so very well located. Again, thank you for making this trip so wonderful. I'd easily go on another trip with you.
