Reviews From Our Travelers
Every year I think this will be my final trip. But the trips you offer are so glorious I can’t stop. You may have to have me committed somewhere to get me to stop.
Eleanor and her staff are enthusiastic and provide information that is additional to that provided by the particular tour agency. She makes an effort to know her clients and makes sure that the tour is appropriate for each client and follows up on details.
Our family trip to Japan was perfectly planned by Eleanor....all eight of us were very happy with the trip and all of the arrangements, which were MANY! We came home happier than any of us thought possible!
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express now has fully en-suite cabins. Six Grand Suites are available on every departure. These include a private bathroom with shower, washbasin, and toilet, living area with space for private dining, and a sofa which can be converted into an additional small bed. See a full description of the Grand Suites and in our blog report.
