The tour was everything that was expected. Great tour manager, would want him on any tour. He was able to cope with difficult situations, most professionally, even when he was frozen cold!!! The various side trips were so enjoyable, and our Tour Manager had so much information to give.
The family atmosphere provided by Monika and Karsten, not forgetting the very obliging staff, made European Christmas an event to remember. I will be telling my friends to think about the same venue with Albatross.
Top of my 'Bucket List' was to experience a 'White Christmas.' So together with my son, daughter-in-law & grandsons Jack (19) and Adam (14) we chose to travel with Albatross.
It has been a wonderful week, great group of mixed ages and the boys found much to interest them. No snow on Christmas Day, however, we have certainly experienced the white stuff in abundance.
Truly, I have really had a great week and look forward to joining the New Year in Paris tour.
Doreen, travelled December 2014
The accommodation was family orientated, friendly, with excellent meals served with style and taste. Being lactose intolerant was well catered for by the chef. The final "medieval dinner" was the best special occasion function I have attended on a tour.
Outings were well paced, interesting, well led by Tour Leader Darren with good information, humour and an excellent safe driver in Andi
You need an exceptional category!!
I had the most amazing, exceptional, fantastic, wonderful time of my life.
The tour manager was perfect in every aspect, his knowledge was superb, organisational skills fantastic.
