Ever present on our minds even after seven months is our 6-week first class trip to England, Germany, the Netherlands and Scandinavian countries, topped off with a stint in St. Petersburg and an extended tour of Eastern Europe, which all became possible by the planning of a first-rate travel company. During our many years of traveling abroad, we’ve worked with numerous travel companies, but NONE can be compared to the top-notch service we experienced with Firebird. Not one detail was missed during our weeks of travel. At every juncture, whether it was at airports, harbors, train or bus stations, we were met by a travel guide and a driver. All of our travel guides were well versed within their spheres of knowledge whether we were visiting cities, palaces, museums, cathedrals, and castles. Our guides and drivers always went out of their way to make us comfortable whether it was by providing something to drink, carrying our bags, or by transporting us in comfortable vehicles. They were ever helpful for recommendations on places to eat and sights to visit that were above and beyond what had already been planned for us. We would be remiss if we failed to mention the accommodations. Each hotel we stayed at was either a 4 or 5-star hotel that served a breakfast buffet! For six weeks we lived in the lap of luxury! When my husband first began planning this trip and announced to me that it would be six weeks in duration my heart sank. I couldn’t imagine how I would survive a trip of that length. As it turned out, while I was eating breakfast on our last day of this journey, my eyes welled with tears wondering how I would return to life. When sharing my thoughts with my husband he made the comment “it’s hard to go back when every step of the way we’ve been catered to and given first-class treatment.” If you choose Firebird to plan your travel, you can rest assured you’ll be treated to the care and attention you hope for!
