Kathy and I had a wonderful trip to a Antarctica, and we want to thank you again for all your help and guidance during the planning. The trip was a great adventure, and we truly enjoyed ourselves.
Quark did a great job. They were attentive, organized, and experienced. I would recommend them, and I would travel with them again.
Crossing between the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula was a bit rough. We got sea sickness patches prescribed by our doctor before leaving, and I would recommend this. On-board the ship, meals were very good - small-ship style, buffets for breakfast and lunch and a dinner service with three meal choices. The 120 passengers were skewed a bit to the younger end. Those are penguins behind us!
Sherry and I and our group of eleven loved our National Geographic G-Adventures 2 week trip to Costa Rica. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors and people of Costa Rica.
Our CEO, Deinor Alfaro was fantastic! He always reviewed the next day with us - times - transportation - what to expect. - tours - tour options. He also arranged for the group to do an optional dinner out in every town. All transportation arrived promptly and all of our guides were exceptional.
Tortuguero - Remote but very comfortable. We saw many different birds, including toucans, lizards, caimans, a sloth and monkeys.
La Fortuna - We loved our tours - We got to immerse ourselves in the culture.
Monteverde - An adventure in itself. The people are passionate about protecting the environment in Costa Rica.
Manual Antonio - Our hotel Villas Lirio was very nice! Our tour to Manual Antonio National Park was exceptional. Our guide look photos and let us look through his high powered scope.
So many great memories!
I attended the recent trip to Israel led by Marge Santos. I have traveled the world both with guided tours and with family members on our own. Marge and her team did an outstanding job planning and coordinating the trip, from the itinerary to hotels to meals. Her low key guidance and leadership made the pilgrimage most enjoyable. Her patience and easy manner were appreciated.
I am so grateful I had the privilege to travel with Marge and look forward to more travel with her in the future.
I didn’t know such a place existed like Le Blanc here in Cancun. The food! The drinks! The spa! The service! My mom and I find ourselves WOWed at least 5 times a DAY. It’s amazing if a place can WOW ya once a trip…let alone 5 times a day. This place truly is amazing.
Laura, Thank you so much again for the arrangements. Mom’s 90th birthday trip was fantastic!
The entire Trach clan want to thank you for organizing an amazing trip to Spain for us!!! It was absolutely perfect from the time we landed until we were back at the airport on our way home. The excursions were the best and the lodging arrangement at the beach truly an awesome experience!
It far exceeded my expectations, which were really high! We will never forget the time we spent together which, as you know, is really special as your kids get older! Thank you again for the

We appreciate your booking our Scandinavia/Russia Cruise ~ the ports of call were wonderful and culturally enriching. The mini-suite you chose for us had more than ample space with a beautifully angled balcony … the tray of canapés you sent welcomed us warmly aboard the Regal Princess ~ a BIG thank you!
We were blessed with good weather and health throughout the cruise!
LOTS of great memories!!! Thank you!

Dear Viking Travel and Cindy -
Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard the Celebrity Solstice
We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, but I had major back surgery in March and was not sure about making our trip.
We cannot say enough about the Celebrity staff and them accommodating me. I was using a walker for this trip and asked for special needs. Upon arrival at the dock for departure, we checked in at the curbside area for assistance. They had my name on a list and had a wheel chair ready for me to transport me on board. They stayed with us through security and delivered us to our stateroom.
The accommodations, food, beverage service and the ship were exceptional. We have been on other cruise lines, but we feel Celebrity knocked it out of the park. The entire staff was friendly and willing to help me anyway they could.
I wanted to thank you for your efforts in making this a memorable trip and making the necessary accommodations required for me to be able to go on the trip. I would recommend Celebrity Lines anytime. Compared to other cruises, they were much more efficient; they had the system down.

Hats off to Viking Travel for an amazing family vacation in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!
Kim Schneider is a rock star!!!! I have been singing her praises to anyone who will listen!! Kim went above and beyond from day one; from helping us choose the location (& there were many!) & making sure ALL of our "6" needs were met, to taking care of every last detail down to our seating on the plane-this trip could not have gone any smoother thanks to her hard work. This is our second trip through Viking and they/she did not disappoint! We will never travel anywhere without their service. I can't express enough - the value of the peace-of-mind it gave us to know that Kim Schneider & Viking Travel "had our back" & EVERYTHING was taken care of. I was even more impressed that the customer service does not end when your trip does! On top of welcome home emails, we received a fantastic personalized photo album to commemorate our family vacation! From the tips of our newly tanned toes we extend a heartfelt thank you to Kim & Viking for an unforgettable experience!!
Jennifer, Paul, & family
Our Chile vacation was fantastic! Thank you for all your help with the arrangements. Here's a few thoughts/observations in case you have other clients interested in this trip:
Atacama Desert - This segment was better than we expected. San Pedro has a lot of very interesting attractions, and during our stay one of the volcanoes had a minor eruption. The Alto Atacama Resort did everything right with good excursions, comfortable rooms & good food. I would strongly recommend it.
Easter Island - This ended up being our favorite segment. The archeological sites are extremely interesting, and our local guide, who was a native Rapa Nui, was both knowledgeable and conscientious.
Santiago - We had a very good guide and an the hotel was excellent. Santiago was an interesting city to explore, and having some free time in the afternoon worked out well.
Patagonia - The mountains do not disappoint, and there is a lot to see - including some unique South American animals!
