Archaeology vacation in Greece
Excellent! Our group consisted just of my wife and I so we got personal service from Christos, the Company Operations Director, for the the whole week. The hotel we stayed in was very comfortable, the staff most attentive and the general atmosphere most congenial. (more)Julian Grubb
Excellent. One of my favourite vacations - I'd loved the Peloponnese when I went once as a child and it all lived up to my rose-tinted memories of the place. Two of us in the group had studied Classics which was our reason for going, and we weren't disappointed by the archaeological guides who took us round or the amount of time we had to explore for ourselves. As a company they were great at making sure we were taken care of and a great vacation. (more)Naranee Ruthra-Rajan

Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
Memorable parts? The peaceful setting, serene surroundings and the warm and gracious hospitality of our hosts, Shane and Bea, are our fondest memories. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left, two weeks later, we rarely thought of our hectic, fast-paced life back home. The villa is a one-of-a-kind gem and we feel very fortunate to have been able to spend two weeks relaxing there and being wowed by the beautiful vistas and sunsets that greeted us every day and every evening. ... (more)Nancy Lipson
