"Traveling to the Czech Republic for nearly a month with my 23 year old daughter was my dream for a decade. Frank made the process from start to finish a joy. The custom journey he helped us actualize proved to be more than I could have ever wished for. Instead of bumping up against snags and problematic logistics, we cruised through our adventure with each day unfolding in ways one can only experience in the Czech Republic! Treat yourself, let Frank arrange your dream European adventure!!"

"What an incredible trip! The itinerary was masterfully planned and executed and included plenty of free time to relax and/or explore however I chose. Frank and Mike were gracious hosts who willingly tended to our every need and whim. They even arranged special, tasty meals for us gluten free eaters. The Czech Republic was exquisitely beautiful, the spas amazing, the special tours fascinating. Frank and Mike told many a personal story which made the trip even more meaningful.
