"The tour was thoroughly enjoyable. Fellow tourists were most amiable. The six-day format was most agreeable. Roberta Peters was wonderful."
—Mrs. Geraldine P. Pierson, Painted Post, NY

Weekends in Europe: Paris    "I had a fabulous time! Everything was superb, the performances, food, companionship—our tour director, the always elegant and well-staffed Pierre. Thank you all, we'll meet again, I'm sure." —L. Crnogorac, Mechanicsburg, PA
