We are always happy to greet guests from Australia. After all, coming to Europe for them is a major investment in time. I’m not certain we would be very happy flying for 24 hours to reach my destination. But once here, we totally spoil our guests from “Down Under.” We find that our Aussie guests […]

Is Europe Safe?
June 19, 2016 Clients who have been traveling with us this season tell us “our friends thought we were crazy to travel to Europe.” What? Crazy smart for choosing a private tour over a cruise or bus tour? Crazy hungry for great food and wine? Crazy interested in culture and history?” If that’s what these […]

We could say that with all honesty until about five years ago when we started to notice copycats following what those in the industry told us we were […]
