Guest Comments:

We spent 14 days with James as he coordinated an extensive trip through Germany for 13 of my family members. Many individuals in my family have traveled both for pleasure and work outside the US including Europe in the past so we felt that it would be hard to show us more than what we had experienced already.

Quite simply, we were wrong.

Our experience was WAY beyond our expectations which I rarely say has ever occurred for our family. One of the challenges that James picked up on immediately was the diversity of our family in part due to the age span from a 3 year old to my father who is 78 years old.

James not only planned for this during our itinerary planning but also ongoing during our trip. He remained flexible while at the same time kept us on schedule which I sensed was a challenged given our family and the varying degrees of interest that included slow walkers, store front shoppers, church and historic site fanatics to family members who just wanted to relax.

Everything from the hotels to food to sites to funny unplanned experiences was perfect! James has the inside track on so many places that it would be impossible for any commercial travel planner or even well traveled individuals to attempt to coordinate.

To get the most from your experience with this type of adventure, be open and honest with what you want to experience. James will pick up on your interest and build this into the trip. Big hotel versus small inns, unique restaurants, tours and sites that you would not know about, price ranges, etc... he will work with you. The money spent is well worth it. (not to mention the professional photography that he does during a trip which he does not promote as much as he should. the photos that he provided during our trip were priceless as he is a professional photographer)

He has a very unique travel niche. I only hope that we take another planned trip with him in the future which is in the talks already.

I have no hesitation in recommending him personally as well as for his services.

You will not be disappointed.
