I really like the local guides in each city. They give interesting historical information as well as a fresh perspective on their city. I also appreciate the “side trips” that are incorporated into our tour such as: leather demo in Florence, rug shop in Marrakech, Damascene steel store in Toledo, or hand crafted copper shop in Fez. My husband and I really appreciated the daily bottled water given to us while in Morocco. It was a life saver!
Sarah's experience, patience, friendliness and knowledge.
She was very communicative when there were some changes and/or more info she found.
I appreciate Marty Harter as she is the one who referred Sarah.
Ascendas understood that I wanted a very special experience for our anniversary trip. They asked about details I hadn't even considered. They then offered me several options to choose from before making final arrangements. Our agent even kept an eye on the forecast as our departure date neared since we were going to the Caribbean in hurricane "season."
