From the moment I was contacted by this travel agent, I felt as though he truly cared about my travel experience. I had recently suffered a personal tragedy and was using this extended vacation in Europe as a means of recovering. I had an idea of what countries I wanted to visit but little beyond that. My agent analyzed available tours and found one that met my interests and departure timeline....which wasn't long. He only had about 10 days to plan and execute this almost month-long trip for me and he did so flawlessly. There were very few hiccups between the tour and my time travelling alone after the tour. I felt very comfortable with the travel itinerary and every detail was well planned. I traveled alone for 10 days following the tour, visiting the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Romania. My agent had arranged for a car service to pick me up at each destination as well as knowledgeable tour guides to show me around the cities. Each guide was extremely friendly and made an impact on me through their storytelling and personal experiences in these formerly communist countries. In Romania, my tour guide and driver picked me up at the airport and I enjoyed two full days with them including a day trip to Bran Castle. When they dropped me off at the airport to return home, I actually found myself tearing up at the thought of never seeing them again. They had become my friends! As I am not one who usually cries, I quickly said goodbye and ran into the airport.
While I was traveling, another agent at this company assisted me in obtaining a flight to Washington DC as I needed to travel there approximately one week after my return. Again, it was handled with precision and professionalism.
Switzerland and Austria are impossibly beautiful. Each day you travel through this beautiful countryside, you feel as though it can't possibly be anymore stunning than the day before...and then you see something that just takes your breath away. This happened over and over again. The pride the Germans, Austrians, and Swiss take in their country is evident.
While I enjoyed the travel alone following the tour of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, I think I would have preferred to take another tour instead. Traveling alone, while therapeutic, was lonely at times. I really came to enjoy the other people (despite being 25 years younger than the majority of them) on the tour and was very sad when we parted ways. I found myself wishing they were continuing on with me on the second leg of my trip.
