The experience of planning a trip with this Germany travel company was just great from beginning to end. We felt that the trip was customized to our needs/wants but that the effort and hassle was largely eliminated. While "luxury travel" suggests that one is paying a high premium, we felt overall that because our money was being spent wisely we got good value for the dollar and may ultimately have spent less for what was certainly a better experience than what we could have planned for ourselves. Getting to know the folks at this company, the various tour guides we met through them and the local people we met though various experiences they arranged would have been worth the extra costs, but as it turned out, I did not feel that I'd spent more on the vacation.
We certainly ate at a number of restaurants that I cannot imagine I would have found in a guidebook or website, but my favorite experience was the supper club we visited in Berlin--the seven courses with wine at each course was an experience, but the opportunity to share a table with local people was the special part.
If we'd had more time, I would have built in more time at each place we visited and more "down time." As it was, we attempted to do a whole lot more in 15 days than was humanly possible (and we are clearly not masters of German efficiency), but when we discussed it, could never figure out what we would have cut from the itinerary in order to get the extra time we wanted in each place we visited. But I think a day or two in the middle of the trip to just "hang" would have been good and I probably would have told the tour company to construct a more relaxed itinerary.
