“Thank you so much for all the effort you put in to make this trip possible for us. “Lucy [their Club Europe Account Manager] was super helpful and very accommodating of all our requests and Sabine [their Club Europe Operations Manager] was a great help!
“Everyone had a wonderful time and I am sure the kids will take away a lot from this experience. The tour operators working with us were wonderful making every little bit of the trip enjoyable for us. It was a very well-planned trip and we were very pleased with everything Club Europe did for us. We were very impressed with the attention to detail and how responsiveness everyone was to all of our needs.”
“Both our tour managers were wonderful. Jitka was great, very informative and the students really appreciated her tours and Karin was really professional and very helpful.”
