The trip was absolutely fantastic!. We had a wonderful time and saw most of what we had hoped to see. The weather was not quite as good as we had hoped it would be but we still got out and did things.
The tours which Firebird arranged were all very good. Each of the guides was extremely knowledgeable about the sites we were seeing. I want to especially tell you what an excellent guide we had for our trip up to Upsalla.
We did get to the Lund Cathedral but were never able to get an invitation to the service with the Pope. Those were mainly given to persons high up in the church and the government. Nevertheless we were as close as were allowed to be when the Pope arrived. The Swedish police were extremely cautious about protecting him and did not allow him to wander around the crowd as he so often does. Once he arrived we hurried back to the Grand Hotel where we were able to watch the entire service on Swedish public TV. We probably saw it better on TV than had we been in the cathedral.
Also we very much enjoyed every one of the hotels. I knew the Hilton in Stockholm would be good since my wife had stayed there before. The Grand hotel in Lund and the Admiral in Copenhagen were also first class.
Thank you for all your help in arranging this trip. We will certainly use Firebird again on our next trip to Scandanavia and will also recommend it to friends thinking about traveling there.
