Mr S Humphreys
we found the hotel, tour manager, fellow tourists, trips, etc all excellent ( also the weather). We like staying in one centre and going on trips from that location.
Wonderful scenery, very well organised, great tours and a brilliant holiday.
Mrs J McIntosh
The only reason it is 4 not 5 is the journey. Quite stressful with all the changes, and coming back would have been worse as there was no break. I in fact paid and flew home on the Sat. as iI had been slightly unwell mid week, and the thought of the journey filled me with horror. In fact I was fine. Would have been nice to know journey details before we booked.
Mr E Aldridge
Tim White was our Tour Manager and was brilliant especially managing 38 peopie. The trip was well organised and we were fortunate with the weather. The biggest disappointment was the vegetarian food at the. alpenblick Hotel, a Michelin star restaurant.
Well planned and very well organized We enjoyed every moment of the whole holiday
from meeting our rep Deborah at St Pancreas at the beginning of our holiday to saying goodby at St Pancreas we had an amazing holiday. Never been on this kind of holiday and it exceeded our expectations in all respects. Everything was so smooth, reserved railway carriages we did not have to worry about anything. We loved it so much going in December on the christmas markets journey.
