The First Castles Tour, September 2000

"The tour fulfilled my castle fantasies  - it was everything I dreamed of and more.  I was expecting Errol Flynn to fly through on a rope any second.  I feel like I got an overview of every notable castle in Europe.  It was wonderful and I plan to go on your castle tour of England when it becomes available.  The cost was reasonable and the accommodations were even better than I expected.  Thanks for all of your effort and planning." Mary Ann from Texas


Castles Tour of Britain and Ireland

"...I would like to add that the British Isles trip was more wonderful than Mother and I ever imagined. We really loved seeing all that history up close and personal. Mother has been telling me for so long about a lot of the places we saw together. That was really special. I think Castles of the World provides a friendly, fun and value packed service. Can't wait for the next tour! (Ruthin was my favorite castle and I loved the stop at Monasterboice)" Maria from Austin.

Great Castles Tour

I would like to thank you (and Jaime and the rest of your group) for the amazing castles tour that Jean (my wife) and I just took to France, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, etc. Jean and I agree that this was without a doubt the best journey we've ever taken guided or not! There were so many superlatives, it's hard to pick out even a few. I never thought we'd see so much in such a short time. The castles were outstanding and the visits to the Eiffel Tower, the Beer Hall with it's entertainment, and the Marquess of Brissac were beyond mere words. Astrid, our tour guide, and Gino, our driver, deserve high ratings above and beyond whatever we can give them. They were helpful and thoughtful beyond the call of duty. I hope on our next trip with you, we have them again! Jaime was great, unfortunately he had to leave so soon. I thank you for our e-mails and calls and all the other assistance you provided along with the rest of your team. I'll follow up in a few days, but just wanted to send you a quick note that I hope cheers everyone up. Every last one of your group, here and in Europe deserve many, many thanks. Ed from Chicago, IL


 Fantasy Tour

I enjoyed the variety of castles you have provided in this tour, from a fortress to a grand palace. I am able to sample the range of residences that archbishops, kings, queens and the nobility have lived in. This trip has been exciting, adventurous and very educational. I thank Lucy for the coordination of this tour. Our tour guide Astrid has been the consummate professional tour director. I appreciate her helpful directions and instructions. She has treated us very well. If I had another opportunity to participate in a tour with Globus, I hope she would be my tour director. I am in awe of Ambrogio and his awesome driving skills. It's been enjoyable experience having him as our driver and the sights  what can be said but "wow' great choices overall. If given another opportunity I would take castles tour again." Ruth from Boston, MA



Great Castles Tour

"Of all the travel I've done over the years, which started for me at a very young age, this will be the most memorable trip I've ever taken. I've taken vacations and trips but this was a trip extraordinaire! I learned more about the areas we visited, saw more during the two weeks (at least 90% more) than any excursion I've ever taken. I've had more fun and made more friendships than any trip I've ever been on. I feel I've grown as a person! I was glad I was in good shape before I went and I came away form the trip in even better shape than I was before!! Thank you so much Lucy for making a long-awaited dream trip come true! It was much more fascinating and exciting than I even expected!"    Evelyn from Denver, Co.


Great Castles Tour

"The tour was very well organized, everything was arranged in advance for a flawless flow; castle tours, hotels, guides, meals, etc. Astrid (tour director) and Massimo (bus driver) did everything to please the group; arranging special meals, seeing to our comfort, arranging the bus so we can get the best drive pictures. Total customer service 100% quality. This was one of the best trips I have ever been on. I enjoyed every non stop minute! and the other passengers were all wonderful!
