My wife and I arrived back in the United States last night. I wanted to express my appreciation to each of you for your help and guidance in making our trip to Central Europe absolutely wonderful. The hotels you recommended were perfect - we especially enjoyed the Regent in Berlin and the Aria in Budapest, but the Kempinski in Vienna and the Aria in Prague were very nice as well. Our guides were in every instance first class - I have been with a lot of guides through the years, and I have never been with better ones. Every day was an adventure and a joy with these people. The trip was well laid out, and the transportation services were also outstanding.

Dear Susan, Thank you so much for helping us coordinate our trip. It was an amazing experience, difficult to convey in words. What made it so special were the two guides you led us to: Esther and Peter. They were both EXCEPTIONAL! They each went the extra mile (literally and figuratively) to help us find the missing pieces to our puzzles. They were both warm and easy to learn with, helping to make what could have been an emotionally laden trip, easier to experience. They were both with us 100% in what we were trying to accomplish. And we did find missing pieces! In addition, our accommodations were excellent. Again, many, many thanks. The cancelled flight actually led to a wonderful conclusion to our journey: our daughter and son-in-law were in London, and we took a cab into the city to have dinner with them. So there we were with our child, the grandchild of Rich’s father, a survivor of the Holocaust - a period of personal history that was brought to life in a way we could never have imagined. Warmest regards,

Amy & Rich - Susan Rubin, Protravel International

Juts a quick note to say thanks to you and the team for making my client so happy in both Prague and Berlin :-)

“We arrived home. Thank you again as your Prague team delivered on your promises and our expectations. Peter was delightful to be with. He profoundly knowledgeable and witty and made the time with him so enjoyable. Until next trip"

Dear All, I can’t believe that it is almost a week since we returned from our fabulous vacation. Thank you for making this happen. Everything was “top notch”: the transfers, drivers, walking tours, and hotels. The highlight was Dubrovnik (the city, hotel, and boat excursion), so much so that my husband would like us to go back next year. We also had a great time at the wedding with 500 people and partying until 5AM; well not us but mostly the young guests. We’ve never done an entire trip with a ground operator but now I can see that this is the way to go. It was a real vacation with nothing to worry or think about except for having a good time. Best regards,

M. Ferrari

I didn’t want time to pass before thanking you for the incredible energy, guidance and professionalism with which you led our group and provided for excellence in every part of our visit. We certainly could not have squeezed in more personal experiences, wonderful meals, grand events, and important learning experiences about Jewish history and community, along with an appreciation of the art and culture of the three cities we visited. Of great import is the sensitivity to those of our members who expressed personal needs and desires. You handled it all masterfully. And of course I especially appreciated your ability to make changes midstream when needed. So thank you for making our trip so powerful and significant. Warmly, Peter
