TOUR ANNOUNCEMENTS:  Early Bird Specials

The deadline for the early bird special is coming next week.  We have had a great response and some of our tours are filling up rapidly.  Those passengers that pay their $100 deposit before Thanksgiving Day (November 22, 2001) will receive a $50 discount towards the purchase of their trip.

FEATURE STORY: 2001 Tours Were a Great Success

This summer we had two different tours with 63 passengers.  We want to extend a warm thank you to each of those passengers for traveling with us.  We had as much fun on each tour as you all did!  We have posted on our web site photos and quotes from each of the two tours.  You can see them at:

June 2001 Great Castles Tour

September 2001 Great Castles Tour

Here are two quotes from two of our past passengers:

"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!" 

"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!

Dear Traveling Knight Newsletter Castle Lovers -
