"We had an outstanding trip and our travel needs were handled very efficiently.
"In spite of the torrential rain every minute of my stay in Bilbao, this was one of my dreams come true: I finally saw the Guggenheim Museum which I liked very much.
Mrs Sigrid Taylor"
"The whole trip was very informative, enjoyable, not at all rushed, well co-ordinated and totally pleasurable.
Mrs Christine Muir"
"Early morning walks around the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia, before the crowds. Meeting Father Ian Sherwood. In general, becoming aware of the tragedies affected the disenfranchised minorities in the Middle East & Central Asia, and how they are related to their shared religious and cultural histories.
Ms Pamela England"
"I would like to tell you that it was a wonderful trip. Thank you for organising it so well.
"All your arrangements worked well and we had a wonderful few days in Istanbul.
"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"
"It is always inspiring to become acquainted with other cultures, and to see for oneself places known of through literature and other reportage media. Our experience of Russia was quite different from the present coverage in press. We were not particularly noticeable or significantly different from the generality of Russians. Perhaps the most pleasing moment was having supper in the restaurant of the National Hotel in Moscow, overlooking Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral. We couldn't have been positioned for a more iconic view, and the surroundings were sumptuous.
Ms Rosalind Lavington"
"The Cox & Kings Europe consultant who handled the bookings for our holiday was excellent and made the arrangements extremely efficiently in a pleasant and helpful manner.
"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"
"It was a marvellous tour and a very good itinerary.
"The astonishing moment of entering the Cathedral of Monreale and the drama of the golden mosaics. Stupendous impact.
Dr Jennifer Somerville"
"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 historical knowledge that Professor Robin Cormac, our UK guide, shared with us brought Ravenna alive.
Mrs Josephine Rednall"
