"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.

"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.

"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 would like to tell you that it was a wonderful trip. Thank you for organising it so well.
"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"
"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.
"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"
"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"
"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"
"The historical knowledge that Professor Robin Cormac, our UK guide, shared with us brought Ravenna alive.
Mrs Josephine Rednall"
"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"
"The visit to the Moscow Kremlin and Armoury was inspirational. The walk around the grounds, the churches, bell tower, gardens, tomb of the unknown soldier followed by a visit to the Armoury was amazing.
Mrs Jacqueline Rule"
"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.
