Renee Simms8/4/16 Iceland tour
Iceland is the most beautiful place I've ever seen and I enjoyed the trip immensely!
Amy Boscov7/22/16 (Denmark and Norway customized pkg)
Thanks for all you did. We had an excellent trip. The hotels in Bergen and Oslo were great. Their staff was extremely helpful. The breakfasts in Oslo were outstanding!
The tour guides in Bergen and Oslo were great. We really felt we learned a lot. The tour guide in Copenhagen was not well suited to us. She knew about the monarchy and told anecdotes about seeing them, but her knowledge of anything else was poor. Our tour up to Elsinore and Hamlet's castle would have been better if it had included less about the monarchy and other castles and instead stopped in Roskilde as I had mentioned we were interested in seeing Viking museums and it was hard to get to on our own. That was the kind of personalization of the tours that I expected.
The only major difficulty we had was on the Norway in a nutshell. There was nowhere to get any gluten free food, and no time (since the boat was late getting into port) to even try to get anything before the cog railroad. We ended up famished and exhausted. Nowhere on that whole trip was there an clear signage. It was very haphazard. While beautiful, it was poorly done.
The cities were great. We loved Bergen, Oslo, and Copenhagen. Some of the highlights for us were the food markets and in Copenhagen there is a fabulous museum called the David Collection which was brilliantly curated, free, and has one of the world's best Islamic Art collections. While not for everyone, it is something you should know about. We also went to the historical museum, art museum, tivoli, and hired a canal boat on our own. They were each excellent.
Our hotel in Copenhagen, which we booked on our own, (Hotel Kong Arthur) had a great location. The breakfasts weren't included, and were overpriced, but we found other places in the area that we liked. It was also really easy to take the metro to the airport from there. It was easy to take a bus to the hotel in Bergen and my son had no difficulty getting a bus to the hotel in Oslo.

Specialized Scandinavia trip with Denmark and Norway feedback from the travel agent!
HUGE SUCCESS !!!! Thank you SO MUCH! clients were very happy with their trip. No complaints!! You did such a great job, especially putting up with my anxiety and multitude of questions!!
We are back and had a great time. Everything went very well (except, of course. All the hotels selections and the transportation were great. I'm not sure we needed the big evening meals in Balestrand and Flam that were included with our hotel price but there weren't a lot of other places to eat so that was fine. The hotels were lovely. I know they had to put us at a different hotel in Oslo than the one originally selected. I think it worked out better. The Thon Opera hotel was right near the train station but our hotel was actually connected to it. The tourist information area was right there. There were several restaurants right there and we were tired at night so could get a quick bite to eat and not go out.
So all worked out well.

All was good.
He said hotel Natura was nice.
Dinner at Blue Lagoon restaurant was very good but overpriced.
They were very happy with the tours but the 2 they loved was Golden Circle and Into Glacier.
Descending into Volcano was good.
They said they could have used 1 more day.
They Loved Iceland.
Thank you for your help.

We had an absolutely wonderful time Berniece! Thank you so much for all of your help. Everything worked out great! The tickets etc arrived at my Aunt's house before we arrived which was so nice and worry free! We absolutely fell in love with Balestrand and our room in the hotel was fantastic!
The weather was perfect! Not one rainy day not even in Bergen! Bob took over 1000 pictures!!!
The only thing we wished had been better was on the train from Oslo to Mrydal our seats were at the very back of the car and there was no window! Fortunately for most of the ride the train was not full so we were able to sit in other seats , only at the stop before Mrydal did it become full and we had to sit in our assigned seats. It would be nice to make sure the seats have windows, we know this was not arranged by you but maybe whoever arranges it in the future could make sure the seats have windows, the rear seats do not, it would be better to put people in the middle of the car, just a suggestion. As i said for most of the ride we were able to see so it was fine.
Bob has made photo shows of our trip and will be sending them to you, he still has more to make!
Again, thank you so much!
