Good

We enjoyed our experience with Firebird. In fact, Prague is now one of my favorite cities! However, there was a small imperfection with meeting, we couldn’t find our driver at first. Other than that, the trip was outstanding and I will be coming back to Firebird when planning my next trip.

My friends and I went on a tour of Eastern Europe with Firebird Tours. I would rate this journey 11 out of 10! Firebird travel team is fantastic and I will use them again and again for all the trips I will be taking in future.

Highlights of the Aegean, Greece & Turkey

With great appreciation we can state that this was one of the very best trips we have ever experienced. We’ve visited many parts of the world over the years and most of our trips went smooth, however, this one is certainly a stand-out. All thanks to Firebird Tours.
