We had an amazing time: great food, sights and people. The Japanese culture is fantastic. One of the highlighted was the Japanese homestay; what a great opportunity to see Japan on the inside. More time in the schedule for the homestay was ... read more CJ | Japan
The tour went very well, and certainly covered a lot of ground. I think if Bard is to do this again, though, many of us would have suggestions for doing it a bit differently. Less travel, more theatre, not so many historic sites in one day, an... read more PC | Scotland
The trip was fabulous in my eyes. A few little things from my perspective. As I told the group, I had nothing to compare it with on previous trips. Best one I have been on for sure and I feel I have really seen Greece now. I had been to San... read more CP | Greece

But I wouldn’t have missed such a wonderful experience.read more MC | Portugal, Spain
I have loved Greece. Each area we went to was unique in its own way. Right off the bat I’d say the meals we had on the little islands that we got to by boat were definitely highlights for the group as a whole. Our windup dinner was great. I may... read more MS | Greece
From my point of view I think the trip was outstanding. The Laos pre-tour with just six of us was wonderful. I have to say it was a jam-packed schedule, but I did not want to miss a thing as I had paid to go that far to see everything. I th... read more Sharon L | Vietnam

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Bhutan. We managed to see all the main highlights, and I truly believe that we all became fondly attached to our drivers and guides. An added bonus was the beautiful, sunny weather we experienced everyday. I... read more DL | Bhutan, India

John and Theresa, you are wonderful hosts and the culinary dishes were remarkable. Who will ever forget Icelandic shark washed down with schnapps? And, John, Duncan Hughes was right when he said of you “What you see is what you get.” Jus... read more LH | Iceland

G and I consider our trip to Japan one of the very best among the great trips we have taken. We asked ourselves this morning if there were any negative aspects about this one and that led us to the word, flawless.

We arrived home late Wednesday after two great tours. Thanks to you, all our travel arrangements went like clockwork, including all flights and the Eurostar to Paris, which, in our opinion, is much better than flying. The Bard Tour was grea... read more PJ | Scotland

Just returned home on Saturday evening. Extended the trip as you know with a couple of days in San Sebastian and then a day in Bilbao. The trip was fabulous. I enjoyed it immensely. A few hiccups, but my goodness, when you consider the ... read more MM | Portugal, Spain
The best tour I have been on – and the only one (I thought I would hate a tour). Strengths – the people on the tour, our guide in Hanoi (superb) and in Saigon (smart and thoughtful), the countries themselves, the hotel in Hanoi, the fact t... read more Linda K | Cambodia
