“We had a wonderful time! Everything went so smoothly! Not even a wrinkle in our plans at all, because of your expert planning! All the train times and transfers worked out well. The driver in Milan, Nello, was very professional and a nice guy— and we were so glad we had a driver! In Venice, it was nice to have someone meet us at the train station to deposit us at the Ferrovia water taxi to get to the stop where someone else met us for the short walk to the Bon Vecchiati. We have some marvelous memories and great photos. We have been back for a week, and finally adjusted to the time, and we miss Italy and traveling, so we will just have to do it again. Also Delta Airlines is terrific. We loved the Vatican tour, as well.
Thanks so very much, or as they say in Italia: Mille Grazie, Carol and Chris”

We had a great time on the cruise, the weather was perfect all the way. George did a great job, even getting us off the ship earlier. Both the bus drivers were great and got us there and back home in good time. We met some great people and made good friends. Another success.

Donna and I wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the cruise from Rome to Barcelona. Your planning and efforts made the trip go smoothly with little effort on our part but to sit back and enjoy our vacation. You and Sharon showed remarkable patience and understanding while dealing with our diverse group and that went a long way making our experiences fun and stress free. We will certainly stay aware of the Vegas Voyagers for future trips and will recommend you to our friends.
Thanks again for a great trip.
It was seriously a dream come true and perfect. The words thank you don’t seem like nearly enough! You seriously planned The most wonderful experience and we are so grateful! All of your set up and recommendations went beyond smooth and were so right on. We had the greatest experience and loved every moment.
Costa Rica was the perfect destination. All of the people we met, both locals and tourists were incredibly nice and so genuinely kind. Everyone also made us feel so special. The wether was great and the two different places we stayed in were spectacular! It was magical!
Starting at the riu palace was perfect. From the minute we arrived they were giving us drinks and treating us like royalty. The environment was warm, welcoming, fun, and gorgeous. We truly enjoyed all of the all inclusive offerings – food was delicious, drinks were excellent, different pools and activities both land and water were included and a blast. We did everything, stand up paddle board, snuba, snorkeling, pool activities, beach volleyball and just enjoying the beach. They had shows at night which was entertaining too. The buffet dinner on Christmas Eve was out of this world and all of the restaurants every night were really tasty.
While there we did the catamaran sunset tour and buena vista challenge. Both were a blast. After snorkeling off the catamaran they served lunch which was local Spanish food and delicious and we went on sailing- it was also open bar and the people on the boat were great. The buena vista challenge was fun too- it was a great activity to give us a bit of everything. We had a great time on both!
We didn’t think it could get any better until we got to the springs. It was about a three in a half hour drive but well beyond worth it. The place was the nicest place we have ever been and everyone there was fabulous!!! The views were breathtaking and the springs were stunning. It felt surreal to be there and truly made it feel like a honeymoon. So romantic. They had delicious food, drinks, and many options. Prices were also reasonable. We went to club rio and went river tubing and to the wildlife preserve. It was so much fun!! By the way- our room was out of this world. The privacy it offered was incredible and we had our own hot spring in the backyard- wow it felt like a dream and we miss it already! Again their entire property was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Adam and I were stunned. There were so many spring options and it never felt crowded.
While in arenal- we took the time to enjoy the rainforest- we went zip lining which was fun and the zip lines were long and high. We went canyoning which is repelling down waterfalls and was sure to be an adrenalin rush. Then we went on the hanging bridges and enjoyed the time just walking through the rainforest and learning about where we were.we also took the cano negro wildlife tour which was like a river tour where we saw all this amazing wildlife . We truly enjoyed it. We say monkeys, lizards, caymans, toucans and it was all in the wild. At the hotel they also had a great deal of wildlife in the surroundings of the resort. All of those yourself we booked through the hotel and a girl named Nochole- she was great and all of the tours were too! We really did love every minute and only have positive things to say. We also had a spa treatment which we awesome.
We loved every single moment! Both resorts were fabulous and the layout of the trip was perfect.
Even the private drivers were great and really took care of us. Really enjoyable! Every moment.
Thank you again for everything. We couldn’t be happier to have gone there and had such a fabulous experience and joyful honeymoon. We wouldn’t have been able to even come up with this with out you.
Sorry this email is so long just wanted to provide you with some details. If you have any questions I can answer- I would love to 🙂 it was awesome so that you again.
I’m sad to be home and I’m already looking forward to another vacation 🙂
Thank you for making our dream honeymoon become a reality!

Sharon/Stu – The Israel trip was GREAT! The tour guide was the best! He was informative, spoke perfect English (born in NJ) and very funny. He made each day special and gave a wealth of information on the sites we were seeing. It’s hard to rank what we saw although the boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, Masada, Western Wall, Dead Sea, Vad Yashem, and the Light Show at the Tower of King David were my favorites. Saw plenty of Roman ruins and didn’t realize how much of a builder King Herod was. The food was quite good. We had a large crowd – 42 people – yet everyone was on time and no one got lost. One couple renewed their wedding vows (50 years) at the church in Cana.
The one thing we noticed was that Nazareth, Cana, and Bethlehem (Muslim cities) were not nearly as clean and modern as those under Israeli control. That being said, the Palestinian guide in Bethlehem was very friendly and well informed. We felt safe at all times. We also got to swim in the Dead Sea and heard an interesting talk by an elderly man who spent his life on a Kibbutz. When we arrived a day early, Linda and I visited Independence Hall and the Hagana Museum. Both were interesting. Lastly, the people on the tour were great and I was pleasantly surprised at how close we all became despite being a very large group (the largest to date as compared to the previous four trips we took with Globus). Overall, we rated the trip as exceeding our expectations and were very pleased. The trip home was long and, as always, it’s nice to be back in the US.
It is evident readily apparent what a miracle Israel has been. After being away 2000 years, the Jewish people have built this land into a thriving, modern place and speak a language that hadn’t been spoken for centuries. Very impressive!
The one thing we were surprised at was how hot it was. Often times the temperature was in the upper 80s and 90s. and even hit a 100 degrees one day. For that reason, I would recommend October, although the guide said it was unusually hot this year. The only criticism/recommendation we had was that all dinners were at the hotels, including the welcome and farewell dinners. Yet, the food was varied and very good.
Once again, thanks so much for recommending this trip and putting it together. I will highly recommend this to my friends. Until the next trip – take care.
