Hi Lynn-

I wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous trip to Paris – what a beautiful city!! We had perfect weather, low 70’s and no wind. Just a little rain one day, but we had planned a visit to the Cluny museum so that worked out fine.

The hotel was lovely, and as you know, a great location. We were able to walk to most everything which gave us a chance to see all of the extraordinary architecture throughout the city. The half day Versailles tour was great for our first day. We also really enjoyed the day-long sight-seeing tour since we got to see so much of the city – our guide, Sebastian, was terrific! Our tour to Normandy was also wonderful – a long day, but something we wouldn’t have wanted to miss. We wish we’d had a little more time in the memorial museum (it is so well done), but other than that, it was great. This is a good option for tourists staying in Paris – we met a couple on the Versailles tour that did the same thing.

We were told by all of the guides that the crowds were nothing like they usually are in Paris, I suspect that’s because of the recent bombings in France. So we were lucky and just walked right into all of the museums without waiting in a queue. We went to the Louvre, the Orsay, the Rodin, Napoleon’s Tomb, and the Cluny. We even got a 4 day pass instead of the 2-day without extra cost because of a special they were running.

And the Bustronome was a great event for our last evening in Paris. By that time we knew a lot of the major landmarks so we were able to enjoy seeing the city at night while dining – it was different and fun!

All of the travel arrangements were great, as we experienced previously when we used Central Holidays for a trip to Spain with our daughter. The only problem we had was with the airport transportation when we arrived. The instructions said to call the number listed, but when called, there was only a recording in French, not English, and we don’t speak French! So we ended up having a woman a the information desk call for us. She determined that the driver was at the wrong terminal, but he came and got us so all ended well. You may want to have someone check on the transportation # so that other travelers don’t have the same issue.

Thank you for all of your help and advice – it was a wonderful trip!!

Hi Cassie,

We're back from our Italy vacation that we booked through you and Central Holidays. We want to thank you for answering all of my questions and helping us to know as much as possible about the trip.
Everything about the trip was terrific. Our leader/escort (Lorenzo) was caring, considerate and knowledgeable about what seemed to be everything. Our driver (Rocco) was outstanding in his ability to maneuver in tight spaces. Our daily guides were very knowledgeable and made everything so much more meaningful than we could have found out on our own. And our traveling companions were terrific. Such a great group and it was small. Nineteen people for eight days and 22 for the last few. And the weather was wonderful too.

I suspect that no other trip can match this one.

Thank you again for your part,

All our best,

Hi Pat!

Everything was amazing! We truly truly appreciate all of the work you put into making it a wonderful experience. We loved every minute of it and we both agree that Santorini was our favorite island. The central holidays agent there, I believe his name was something like Konstantinos, was phenomenal and helped us by reserving dinner spots every night there as well as sun beds on the black sand beach! Best trip of our lives thus far. Thank you thank you thank you!


Hi Lynn,

Highly recommend dealing with central holidays in the future for Greece. The contacts were very professional, always on time or early for meeting times and provided very comfortable transfers ( Mercedes taxis and vans ).I loved all our hotels and they seemed to get better as the trip went on!

Dear Michael, Moriah and Candace,

We had a fantastic time in Spain and we loved our trip! The drivers were great and always on time - special shout out to Eugene and Paul! Our tour of Barcelona was awesome and Jose, our tour guide, was fantastic. The Flamenco dinner and show were a highlight and our accommodations in both Barcelona and Ibiza were perfect! Michael, Mark and I loved seeing the City by day - we fell in love with the Sagrada Familia - and our kids were very happy seeing the City by night (and some day too!).

We can't thank you each of you enough for the tremendous service you provided. We will certainly contact you every time we travel abroad. By using your services, I always have peace of mind.

Thank you, again, for all that you do!


Sitting on the aircraft in Milan. Just wanted to let you know what a great job your staff did for me on this trip.  Much of it due to the hard work and care of Nettie, Max and Sabrina. I have happy customers so you have a happy client. Speak soon. 

Hello Dora and Marco,

Just a quick note to say how much our group enjoyed the tour Escape to Tuscany. Hotel Villa Cappugi was superior in every way; Sabrina our tour leader was excellent; the bus and driver, Stefano, were really great, and all of the sites and tours were just fantastic. SO many highlights. I am so very grateful for the excellent advance work from Central Holidays!
