Derek H.T. WalkerHi Ulla
Back from my long trip, Helsinki St Petersberg, Warsaw then UK
I just wanted to say that the 4 day trip was excellent. We had a great Guide in Helsinki Erma and then Angelina in Russia both were very professional, pleasant and fun and helped make the tour go well. It was a small group (7) so we ended up being good friends for the time together. Hotel was fine though we lost hot water one day there is a huge amount of renovation work going on all round the city and I think raodworks had severed a water pipe. The itiniary was good we went to some great places and the dinners out were excellent
All in all I'd recommend you to anyone!
Paul DorinHi, Ulla,
We returned last Thursday night from a wonderful, incredible time in Iceland and Norway. Thank you for arranging for such great accommodations for us, and helping us plan a thoroughly enjoyable itinerary. We've never seen such a combination of natural beauty in our lives, and the people were wonderful, also. Thanks again!

Eleanor DickmanDear Ulla:
Debbie and I wanted to thank you very much for your help in making our recent visit to Scandinavia a genuine pleasure.
You were very attentive to our requests -- positioning us in modest hotels in the center of big cities, and in elegant establishments in remote resort areas. Thanks also for expediting the train, ferry, and glacier excursions. It was very comforting not to have to determine all these details for ourselves.
We had a wonderful time. I took 1,194 images with my new Nikon camera. The countries were beautiful, the cities interesting, the people friendly, and the memories special. (We were not, however, quite prepared to spend $8.00 USD for an ice cream cone ! ! ! ! !)
Thanks again for facilitating our journey.
Just returned from Finland. Had a great trip and met 6 relatives in Jurva. Everything went off without a hitch.

Brian MccuneDear Ulla,
Darlene and I arrived back from Eastern Europe yesterday. It was a great trip, unique in the opportunity to learn about the often sad history of the countries between Germany and Russia. Thanks for all your help putting this customized itinerary together for us.
The guides were all great. They were very knowledgeable, and also we loved learning about their personal experiences in each country under Communism and after.
Drivers were very careful driving, but the big surprise was their knowledge of English. So we got to ask them questions as well.
We thought when we paid extra for "English-speaking drivers" between Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius that we would have a driver we could ask questions of, but not a knowledgeable guide. We had both the entire way! Via Hansa sent a nice Volvo from Riga to pick us up in Tallinn. Our Riga guide drove up as well.
The Savoy Boutique Hotel in Tallinn was one of the best we have stayed in anywhere. We had a junior suite with huge windows looking out over two streets and a square. Very classy place.
The Ambassador Hotel in St. Petersburg upgraded us to a superior room even though we only had a reservation for a standard room because of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. We were on a high floor with a view of St. Isaac's Cathedral and the oldest part of St. Petersburg.
Overall though, it was a super trip.
Phil CartaHi, Ulla!
I just wanted to write and let you know that everything on the trip went perfectly, like clockwork. Your local DMC in Vilnius was excellent, the tour and guide was quite fine, and the hotels were as expected. We enjoyed it all.
As a note, the Vilnius - St. Petersburg train is now daily. Very easy to book and take locally. First class on the train is recommended based on quality and price.
Peter SuzmanDear Ulla,
Our trip went off without a hitch and it was just lovely. Hotel Kvikne`s even upgraded our rooms to ones with a harbor view for our last nights stay there.
Ulla, this is the first vacation my husband and I have taken in a long time, as he has not been able to get away from work. It felt charmed from beginning to end. The arrangements you made in both Copenhagen and Norway were terrific and you have obviously chosen wonderful people to work with. In Flam we went on beautiful walks up to a waterfall and to the old village of Ottenes. The fjords on the boat ride were spectacular. The weather was even perfect throughout the trip no rain!
Many thanks to you, Try Norway, and the Hotel Augustin!

Our trip was fantastic. Thank you for making the arrangements. We also found "DinewiththeDanes.com" and had a couple of wonderful dinners with the locals. Mom and I loved Denmark.
