Susie,  Thank you for arranging our trip to Iceland this summer.  The Ponant cruise line is amazing, and Tauck Tours provided fabulous lecturers and guides and as usual took great care of us.  Iceland is a fascinating destination.  We felt like we were traveling into the beginning of geologic time.  The country has a vast, fresh wildness about it.  And where else can you dine on fermented shark followed by a shot of a beverage called "black death"!  That was definitely a "once in a lifetime" experience for us!  

Again, thanks for organizing an excellent adventure.

Berlin, Germany

Dee:  Our guide for the Reichstag was superb!  Having lunch in the Dome after viewing Berlin from the top of the Reichstag was a fantastic idea.
Thanks, Molly and Jim

Bari, Italy

Dee:  Everything is going wonderfully.  Thanks for including Bari in our itinerary as we were able to have dinner and some fun with 7 of our relatives.  Having a car plus using the fast trains has been a great way to see a lot of Italy.

Dear Susie,
...Art of Travel introduced me to the wonders of art, architecture, world of shopping and the scholarly strong women who traveled with you. Always keep me in mind if you need an extra traveler for a reservation or a museum visit or opera friend- I will do the same...

Hi Susie,
We had a delightful time in Bar Harbor.
We stayed at the cottage at Harborside Inn... Hardwood floors through out the unit with a views of the harbor to enjoy on our deck.  Also, we had our own jacuzzi and seating area above us, specific to our room.  Highly recommend...
We went on the water the first day.  That was relaxing.  Second day, we watched the sunrise off Cadillac Mountain and went on a 13 mile bike ride on the carriage roads at Acadia National Park.  We had the most delicious popover at Jordon Pond, the only restaurant in Acadia.
We had other friends who were vacationing there at the same time.  So having a little cottage was perfect to entertain company after dinner.
A wonderful weekend.

From Susie: 
Just back form the Galapagos having had an incredible, interactive experience with nature. By nature I mean blue and red footed boobies, giant tortoises, California sea lions, and so much more. With International Expeditions we went on two hikes and one snorkel trip everyday. The food onboard the Evolution was fresh and delicious and the company engaging. I highly recommend the Galapagos adventure if you're a nature lover.
