"The whole trip was very informative, enjoyable, not at all rushed, well co-ordinated and totally pleasurable.
Mrs Christine Muir"
"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"
"I have nothing but praise for this tour. I was travelling with my elderly mother and we both had the most fantastic time. The group gelled very well and we all had similar interests. Our guide (Sami) was superb. His knowledge of the subject was boundless. The coach drivers were both superb especially Hassan who managed to negotiate the roads in an exemplary manner.
"It's difficult to pick an individual moment. The whole visit was so exceptionally interesting, demanding, informative, thought-provoking... The boat trip on the Neva was dramatic and evocative, the view across St Petersburg (I felt I could see all the way to the Baltic) on the first evening from the hotel restaurant on the 9th floor, the Faberge eggs.... all the places were stunning in different ways.
Mrs Barbara Minovi"
"The astonishing moment of entering the Cathedral of Monreale and the drama of the golden mosaics. Stupendous impact.
Dr Jennifer Somerville"
"We had an outstanding trip and our travel needs were handled very efficiently.
"There were lots of highlights, but seeing the Hermitage Gallery in St Petersburg, with its room of paintings by Rembrandt, was magical.
Mr Charles Cox"
"All your arrangements worked well and we had a wonderful few days in Istanbul.
"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"
"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 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"
"Warsaw and Krackow were fantastic and nothing like expected. Auswitz ofcouse was a completely different experience but is something everyone should see.
Mr Terence Grace"
"We enjoyed it all. Kyrenia was a beautiful town but we were very impressed with the walking tours of Farmagusta and Nicosia.
Mrs Maureen Cooke"
"Travelling on the Moscow Metro and seeing the amazing decoration of the stations fulfilled one of my longstanding ambitions.
