The First Castles
Tour, September 2000
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
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.
"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!
