Hello, hello!

Just a short note to inform you about how I appreciated everything your organization has done. My vacation in Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus has been one of the best I have ever experienced. I have seen a lot of beautiful buildings, interesting museums, green parks, palaces and I have met a lot of nice people.

The hotelrooms you booked for me were very much all right and everything else went well. I much enjoyed travelling by train through the Ukraine and look forward to visit your country again. I took a lot of pictures and some of the people who were negative from the start when they heard what my travel plans were changed their minds completely after having seen those pictures and hearing my stories.

Be sure I will recommend your services to other people who plan to go to Ukraine.

Thanks for a job well done.


Ronald, the Netherlands
