Joan Fraser and Chet Mattson ~ Globus Italian Highlights ~ Sept. 2010
Trip was fantastic. Just amazing. Great tour. Wonderful group of people. Tour Director - Beatrice - was superb. Just took care of everything. Beautifully done. Wonderful. Very very good. Value is superb.
They bought quite a few optionals and that made the trip very active. She took 2 prs of good walking shoes and alternated them and was glad she did. All those stairs at the Trevi Fountain!
Loved Venice. They were on the gondola excursion and it was six people to a boat but when it came their turn they said only four people and then these 2 Italian men got it and opened up the accordion and started singing - their own private concert!
Hotels were lovely. Very nice. Some interesting shower experiences.
His comments: So well served in so many ways. Spectacular time. Perfect weather. Pampered - people pick up your luggage and deliver it.
Magnificent churches - managed to see them all! Remarkably wonderful.
Tour had approx. 38 pax. Bus driver was remarkable. Great skill in executing the bus in tight places and dealing with the parking horrors.
Vatican experience - thousands of people lined up and they just went right in.
Excellent Guides- Florence guide was remarkably intelligent and expressive man who knew his stuff. Guide in Rome was an academic who teaches at a university whose life work is Rome - What it meant and what it means. He was so passionate about Rome and he enthused us tremendously. Became awe struck through his eyes. I was thrilled to make the discovery that Rome celebrates the ruins and incorporates them and protects them across the landscape. A dream of mine to go to Italy and finally got it done! and done right!
Egypt ~ Tim & Cid Parker ~ Dec. 2009
We had a great time in Egypt. It was an amazing trip.
Cid actually liked it!
But she did ask our guide while cruising up the Nile,
"When do we get to real Africa?"
Our guide had us walking through tiny villages on the Upper Nile.
The 3 day cruise on the dahabiya was the best part.

The weather in Antigua was fabulous!!! Delta was just fine for us, no problems except the usual small delays. Did hear other passengers complain about Delta though. A women sitting near us on the way down had the same issue with the day change ,she was telling someone else about it who was complaining about not have seat assignments for the way home. On the way back the man sitting next to me was upset about something and said they would never fly with Delta again. Could not tell what his complaint was. The women in front of me was complaining too. I think that it being a prime travel week for the north east has to do with all this. There is so much volume. It does sound like Delta screwed up on the ticketing.
But we did have a very nice time. Matthew took me sailing a bunch of times which was nice. It is hard to believe it is over. We are going to go through the pictures tonight. If there are any decent ones I will send them for you to use on the web site. We used Matthew's new camera that we gave him for Christmas, it was not easy to use so we shall see.
Venice, Italy ~ Tim & Cid Parker ~ Jan. 2010
We had a great trip. My revised route really cut down on the driving I had to do. Might tweak it further for next year. Here's our room in the Metropole. It was the quietest room I've ever had in Venice. There are only 5 rooms on that floor.
