What our clients said after the tour:

Hi Kerstin,
I certainly enjoyed your recent tour very much... Thanks...Helena


Hi Kerstin,
I really am glad that I went on the Danube River cruise and land post tour in Bulgaria. Even three nights
in Budapest. Excellent! Thank you for your awesome plan. Trisha


Hi
I had the best time and I enjoyed the river cruise. I think I prefer the river cruise than the big ocean
cruise. I get to see more on the sides of the land and towns and it's a smooth sailing. High marks to you for
a job well done!! And yes, I would definitely recommend anyone to take a trip with you. Sincerely, Joan Richey
