It came to my attention that most of my post was lost in cyberspace—it was such a great trip it deserves reposting. ? The sites were incredible, the hotels were conveniently located, and the food was delicious and plentiful. Our courier, Virginie “Vivi” Bernat from France was exceptional. She was with us at all times making sure we were comfortable and enjoying our trip. Some of us wanted to see Les Miserable in London’s famous theatre district—Vivi took us to the only reputable discount ticket broker, then arranged for us to have our prepaid dinner at an earlier time than the rest of the group so we could make show time. Also in London, our local guide changed his schedule to take us to see the Changing of the Guard at Buc kingham Palace. In Rome, Vivi arranged for more shopping time for those that wanted it. She also somehow managed to personally escort half of our group to the Mediterranean beach in Greece, give the other half detailed instructions on how to get back to the hotel, and then come back directly from the beach to make sure we made it to the hotel. The local guides gave us great tours as well as advice about items we could find at a lower cost on the next stop and little insider tips like that. This personal attention to detail along with the fantastic sites where Western Civilization was born made this trip an amazing experience for all of us. Thanks Vivi and Passports!
