Thank you so much for a truly wonderful holiday to Turkey and Greece. Our trip was everything I'd hoped it would be: stunning scenery, friendly locals, great travel companions, and it was superbly organised and supervised by an always-cheerful Judy. The only thing I had to do while on tour was to enjoy the experiences: Judy took care of everything.
Even before we left, I knew we were in very capable hands. Judy promptly responded to enquiries, sent very helpful travel and destination information, and even gave us a lovely travel wallet, luggage tags and laminated card with name etc on it (to put inside our suitcases in case of loss or misdirection).
Judy's exceptional organisation was also evident throughout our journey. The itinerary was carefully planned, our accommodation and meals were of a very high standard, and our private mini-buses were very comfortable and reliable. We had a local guide for 2 tours in Greece and throughout Turkey. Our Turkish guide, as well as being a lovely young woman, was very knowledgeable and helpful. I felt like quite the VIP, being part of a small group, travelling in style, with an Australian escort as well as a Turkish guide and personal driver!!
As well as her impressive organisational skills, Judy's friendly and caring personality meant that everyone felt included and looked after. I celebrated a birthday while we were travelling, but hadn't said anything. Judy must have noted my birthday from my passport. She had a card and present waiting for me at breakfast, and made sure that I had a wonderful day (I was also spoilt by my travel companions). Judy was always available if we needed her, and her fun-loving nature certainly gave us some laughs (for example, when a Turkish vendor wanted to sell Judy a CD of traditional songs, Judy's bargaining included an on-the-spot dance lesson!).
I would certainly recommend travelling with ‘Girls on Tour’, and am already planning my next trip with Judy.
