    Great trip to Slovakia!! It really was the best: such history, culture, wonderful food and beer. I loved the medieval towns, castles, the green countryside, the cave and the Tatras. Jane was a careful driver and guide Annamaria was always ready with loads of information about every place we went. And we had such a good time, I felt like part of the family. I am sure I will return. THANK YOU!!

    Hello, Peter and Jane. We had a safe trip back. We were delighted with our trip: excellent guides, beautiful scenery, great accommodations, and many interesting sights along with much informative history. The trip to Brehy was just what I had wanted. The guide, Rudolph, was there when we arrived. We had a look at the town, saw the church where my father was probably baptized, and walked around the adjacent cemetery. We located three different headstones with names like those in my family. The whole visit took about one hour. Thank you very much for arranging a wonderful vacation. Joan and Jim
