"The astonishing moment of entering the Cathedral of Monreale and the drama of the golden mosaics. Stupendous impact.
Dr Jennifer Somerville"
"The historical knowledge that Professor Robin Cormac, our UK guide, shared with us brought Ravenna alive.
Mrs Josephine Rednall"
"There were so many highlights it is hard to mention just one. The visit to the gold treasury in the Hermitage was a highlight.
Miss Dorothy Betts"
"There were many highlights on this tour but the tour of Delphi was excellent. With the back drop of the mountains, it was very peaceful and idyllic. The extension in Hydra was brilliant. It was a very relaxing and peaceful island and was ideal way to unwind before the main tour.
Miss Kerri Thomas"
"Really hard to pick just one. Predictably, the cathedral in Córdoba, the Alcazar in Seville and the astonishing Alhambra Palace complex in Granada, in terms of visits. The fragrance of orange blossom on the streets was sublime. The kindness and warmth of people we met.
Rev Pauline Shelton"
"The whole trip was very informative, enjoyable, not at all rushed, well co-ordinated and totally pleasurable.
Mrs Christine Muir"
"The actual sites that we set out to see &nadash; Aphrodisias was a great surprise and Ehpusus was quite wonderful.
"The phenomenal enthusiasm and knowledge of both our guides, especially Violetta in Moscow who was brilliantly informative, enthusiastic and could not have been better. We also thoroughly appreciated the knowledge of our guide Teddy in St Petersburg.
Mrs Meryl Deane"
"Your guide Turgay is excellent both in his knowledge and helpfulness and very pleasant and fun. The holiday was enjoyable and well worth while.
"The content of the tour was excellent as were the tour leader and local guide. We very much enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot about the artists and times in which they worked. It was wonderful to visit an Italian stately home and have a private tour by the owner who was very kind and welcoming.
Dr John Saunders"
"I very much enjoyed the talks by William Taylor and our guide Hamdi, who were both very knowledgeable. Istanbul is a buzzy place with great scenery, history and interesting people & visitors. To see the city and its surroundings placed in perspective was very insightful. I learned a lot, from Rev'd Taylor and Hamdi and also the other party members. I am looking forward to going back to Istanbul in the future.
Dr Michael James"
"The arrival in St Petersburg was more beautiful than we expected and was so different to Moscow.
Mr Stanley Wood"
"The trip overall was a great success, and our thanks go to you and your team for arranging a truly memorable holiday. We will never forget Wolf's Lair nor, of course, Aushwitz and Birkenau. Thanks again, and we look forward to travelling again with your company - indeed, we are in the throes of arranging a trip to India with you.
Mr and Mrs Harvey"
