FRANCE, ITALY and GREECE 25th Wedding Anniversary
One word to describe the trip and and our European travel agency..sensational. As this was our 25th wedding Anniversary, I wanted this to be perfect for lack of better words. My wife only knew that I was taking her away ….she had no idea of where we were going or what we would do or see.
When I spoke with our agency I outlined exactly what was important for this trip. From my initial email to the first telephone conversation with our agency I was impressed that we were going to be taken care of and that our requests would be met.
I was specific in describing the Hotels that we were to stay in and why…close to attractions to limit taxis and exceptional service by the Hotel staff. All of the Hotels that we stayed in were exceptional. The locations were absolutely perfect. Just as important was the level of service and acknowledgement we received from the Hotels and staff. Every Hotel location knew exactly what we wanted and made the extra effort to ensure that our Anniversary was exceptional. Every Hotel was able to meet all my requests without hesitation.
I spoke with our travel agency and they provided fantastic input after listening to what I wanted to accomplish in each location. Our agnecy was knowledgeable and quickly understood what would compliment our itinerary. They even offered other suggestions that in the end made our trip sensational.
We were fortunate to have small group tours of 2-4 people. The other tours with the private guides were awesome. In the future I would try and do all of our tours with private guides as the interaction is intimate and allows you to take away so much more from the tour.
Another area that I was specific about was the actual travel portion. I was very particular to flights/and seating. This was arranged to perfection with our travel agency. In the end, the travel portion of our Anniversary was relaxing because they had exceeded what I wanted from the Airlines and Ferry company. In combination with this was the fact that I wanted all of the private transfers to be seamless when we arrived in each location. Our driver was always early and spoke english very well. They were in fact our first tour guides of each city while we travelled to our next destinations.
Everyday was a new experience for us. Thats exactly what we wanted. We were so fortunate to have excellent guides and drivers. These people made the days quite enjoyable for us. With some of our driver/guides, it felt as if we were visiting with family and having lunch with them or they were walking around talking about the areas.
Each destination for us was like starting a new trip all over again…Saying good-bye to fantastic people, but with the excitement and anticipation of meeting new people and seeing new things. Everywhere we went and everyone that we talked to was extremely pleasant…a total surprise as we had heard that in some larger cities if you didn't speak the language you may have a difficult time. Not the case anywhere. We tried our hardest to speak the language and in return people were more than helpful.
The most memorable part of the vacation was our vow renewal which took place on the beach in Naxos Greece. This experience exceeded everything that I was hoping for. Perfect weather, perfect sunset, perfect location. Just a completely memorable time.
When my wife and I were nearing the end of our trip, we both asked ourselves and each other the same question….what would we do differently? The only thing……we would spend more time in each location. However, this was not possible for this vacation. It will be in the future. We are already talking about taking our family on a similar vacation next year.
So I would definitely use this agency again.
