We felt safe in Turkey and found the people friendly and helpful. Prices were excellent and the food almost universally magnificent. There is so much to see in the natural and built environment and the wonderful archaeological sites. It is sad to see the ordinary people and businesses suffering from the lack of tourists.
The country was apparently calm and safe. People were friendly and helpful. Such a pity there has been such a down turn in tourism.
Our guide Filiz was wonderful, very well informed, historical insights very helpful, her care for our well being exceptional. Could not have wished for a better tour leader.
I was impressed by the number of places we visited. It was a very full itinerary which I like. We saw things of interest every day. I see no fault with the tour.
The geographical wonders offered by Iceland and Greenland left me in awe. The grandeur and spectacle of the countryside is breathtaking. Our leader (Rob) was excellent: well-researched, friendly, organized and good-humoured.
Wife Brenda and I just completed Odyssey tour in UK entitled “Canals and Railways” led by Mal Bock.
Absolutely superb, and Mal’s leadership faultless. Extremely good value considering only seven guests, superb local guides and drivers, a most comfortable coach with seating for 24. . Hotels chosen were excellent, most with real character, not places one would have chosen without local knowledge and recommendation, . My wife and I have visited the UK many times- I was born there, but we saw so many places which were new to us. Thank you Odyssey!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent itinerary, transport and local guides!
It is hard to believe that such a small country can contain so much dramatic scenery. Icecaps and glaciers, huge waterfalls, volcanos and hot bubbling mud, and those wonderful fjords and high mountain passes
Our guide was a great ambassador for his country, wide knowledge of literature, history, customs, industry, fishing – also a perceptive and sensitive person who inter-acted so willingly with all of us!
Every day was different with so much to see and do. Volcanoes, craters (including the pseudo ones), bubbling mud pools, and the active Strokkur Geyser, the bird life, black sand beaches, and those beautiful Icelandic horses. The time flew by…
I loved this trip as it was so very different from anywhere else I’ve been. The scenery was breath-taking and I never imagined I’d be taken on a cruise around a lagoon filled with icebergs, or see so many magnificent waterfalls that I lost count.
Our driver and guide was exceptional; full of information about places we visited. Resourceful when we had extra time, in organising ‘wee adventures’. Diverted several times to accommodate the special interests of group members.
We were more than satisfied with the whole trip. Enjoyed every bit of it. If you could improve the weather it’d be nice, but even the cold, rain and wind couldn’t spoil the trip.
I really enjoyed this tour. I found all of our drivers/guides were friendly, organised, professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to others.
One of my most pleasurable holidays, and one I must repeat, as it was not long enough. We were most fortunate in having our marvellous tour leader.
The trip to the Tang valley and the Ogyencholing museum were a highlight. Beautiful scenery, wonderful people and one of the best museums I’ve seen. That night and all next day it snowed – what a buzz. Made everything look magical and improved the scenery for the next few days
National Institute of traditional medicine
hike to Wanyditse Goemba
Punakha festival – definitely a highlight
Hanging the prayer flags at the pass!
The outdoor picnics!
Dumtse Lhakhang – went to heaven!!!
Dzong Drak Kha (mini tigers nest) amazing views and climb
Sanga Choekor Shedra (Bhuddist College)
Drakpa and his team (Nima and Karma) were just amazing. Drakpa was very knowledgeable, friendly, caring and cheerful. He went out of his way to provide us with information and experiences to help our understanding of the culture and religion, he was funny and entertaining and very professional under pressure.Nima was a very competent driver, and I have never felt in safer hands in the difficult driving conditions we were in.
I wish to sincerely thank Len for his amazing care, good cheer and flexibility ! Len has that great combination of simultaneous organisation and flexibility, which is so very necessary on a small trip such as this. In his stride, he was able to re-design the program at short notice due to weather conditions (working closely with Drakpa) and the end result was better than the original plan in my opinion!!! It was clear from day one, that Len cared and payed attention to each and every one of us at every step of the way – going out of his way to assist those who needed it. The trust and camaraderie we developed with Len made the trip that much more special! I miss our laughs.
The local guide, Drukpa, was exceptional value. When I was ill for a couple of days his care for me, assisted by Len, was way beyond my expectation.
This trip could have been planned for me as all my interests were included – ballet, theatre, concerts, opera and visits to magnificent museums and galleries.
