Hello Susan . We returned from our holiday in Europe on Sunday and I would like to tell you how impressed I was with our music appreciation tour with you and Allegro holidays . Everything went like clockwork , the hotels and vouchers for the concerts were at the desk , the hotels clean and charming . And lastly the concerts and seating were magnificent . It is the first tour I have ever done or been on ,so initially I was a bit nervous that things would not be in place . How wrong was I ,I would recommend your
organization any time and hope to be able to use this site again. Thank you for all your help.
Sincerely Kath Perry. West Vancouver , BC
Our trip was wonderful: the hotel in Vienna was quite pleasant and could not have been better located-everything was within a very short walk; the seats at the performances were terrific; the neighborhood restaurants were excellent.
Salzburg was equally nice, the hotel, the concert, the city tour, the lake and mountain tour--they were all excellent.
THANK YOU---THANK YOU--THANK YOU ALL!!!
Dave and Dororthy Bagley , Hudson MA

On behalf of my family and myself I want to thank you for
the wonderful tour of Vienna and Salzburg ("The Music
Enthusiast") which you arranged for us and which we completed last
week. Everything was done perfectly; all arrangements were exactly as
promised. We all enjoyed every moment of this memorable tour.
Jack H. Josephs, Howard Beach, NY
We want to tell you first how very much we enjoyed our music
cruise along the Danube from 29 September to 6 October on the Amadeus
Classic. Beautiful music, lovely scenery, stimulating tours, good food and
pleasant company all made for a memorable trip. What�s more, we feel we
got a real bargain by booking with you. The Amadeus cruise was so well
organised and the information you sent us in advance about the programme
enabled us to make good choices about excursions and visits to the operas.

Hi Susan, I wish o thank You for all Your effort in
arranging this Tour of Peru. You selected with Good taste!!!

the first 3 Days in Cusco, he was outstanding along with Guide You had
arranged in Machu Pichu(Alberto). These people along with the overall

Bettina, we are just back from our wonderful trip to Prague
and Budapest, and our daughter's wedding in Venice. Thank you for all your
arrangements. The hotels were perfect, the drivers prompt and cordial, the
music was wonderful and the tours most interesting. You did a splendid job!
All the best,
Marianne and Jim LoGerfo, Seattle, WA
Our tour of Sicily was great, the driver and the guide
were excellent and we never wasted a minute of our time visiting shops and
things like that. As you know, on other tours the guides always try to
lure the tourists to their "preferred merchants" On this tour,
there was just traveling and discovering new places. It was Great!
Raul Robledo, Mexico city
As a classic music lover, I have traveled with Allegro Holidays several
times, either as part of a tour or on my own. All trips were always
excellent and well organized. Allegro Holidays were able to obtain hard to get
tickets to venues such as the Musicverein, the Vienna State Opera and the
My favorite Allegro Holidays program is the "Festival of Classical Music"
in April. I have been on this specialty cruises a number of times and even this year I am going on it again.
cruise is perfect for me.
Christina Peterson, Toronto, OO
When I first contacted Allegro Holidays, I was surprised at
how knowledgeable their staff was and their willingness to give us practical
advice on how to organize our holiday. Our trip turned out to be very
fulfilling and marvelous; the hotels were perfect, all services and
transfers were right on time. We wish to book our next trip with Allegro
Shirley Thomson, San Diego, CA
So many great experiences! The trip was fabulous�and
your tips made a difference. We loved the Thermal Margitsziget�the wonderful
breakfast and private breakfast room overlooking the Danube, the
spa�everything. The only disappointment was we didn�t have time for a
massage with our packed activities. Next time! The Grand Wien in Vienna and
Palace in Prague where both exceptional with great staffs! Very helpful and
good English! All transfers went smoothly. All performances were top
notch�and thoroughly enjoyed the music and all! Seating was excellent. The
sightseeing tours were all well planned and informative�especially the
Prague river cruise where we had the guide all to ourselves. Thanks so much
for your help in making the trip one we will never forget!!
Bonnie Alt, Hemet, CA
Our trip was fabulous, the view from our hotel window was
spectacular, all ferry crossings and transfer services smooth and
efficient. We fell in love with Greece again. Thank you for your excellent
work and patience in dealing with
Becky Hamilton, Raleigh, NC
This trip to the Budapest Music Festival was one of
the highlights of my life. I wish I had planned to stay longer. The
performances were outstanding, the food was great, and my stay at the spa
hotel absolutely relaxing. I feel refreshed and rejuvenated in both body
and spirit. There is only one little problem. I can't stop talking about
this perfect holiday to my friends.
Mrs. Jane Scott, Newcastle, UK
I am very pleased to say that my entire vacation in Austria
and Prague was a great success as everything went like clockwork and there
were no problems; all tickets and vouchers were there at the right time.
Even the weather
Tom Singer, San Antonio, TX
We sincerely thank you for your efforts in making our trip
to Vienna such a wonderful experience. Everything went according to plan,
the seating to all performances was excellent namely: the Lippizan Horse
Show, Volksopera, State Opera, Vienna Boy's Choir and our table arrangements
at the Kaiser Ball
Jean Learn, Coboconk, ON
I am writing to thank you and your staff, especially
Judith, for doing such a good job in putting my requests together.
Everything was perfect, all the hotels, local tours and the
transportation. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and attentive to
my wife's special needs. I shall certainly have no reservations in
recommending your firm to any of my friends.
J. Parker, Johannesburg, SA
I would be remiss if I did not let you know how much I
enjoyed my recent holiday which you arranged. The accommodation and bus
travel between places were good, better than I anticipated. The scheduling
was perfect. Your very efficient and caring tour director, Rita, helped to
make this a delightful trip. Everyone liked her good humors. Mr. Terry
Campbell was as friendly and musically enlightening in person as we know
him to be from his radio work. I will recommend your services
whenever the opportunity
Larry Hooker, Willowdale, On
We had a great holiday in Abano, Madeline's recommendations
were "spot on" for this spa and our weekend and concerts in
Venice. Well done.
Mary Laing, Sacramento, Ca
I'd been meaning to get in touch to let you know that we
had a wonderful time on our honeymoon. Everything went very smoothly
(except for some of the weather, though waking up to a snow covered
Salzburg on our final day, made up for that). The hotels were all very
good, especially in terms of their locations, and it was so easy having
everything already arranged for us. We appreciate your help in putting it
all together, and we will certainly look again at Allegro Holidays
for our future travels, though there can only be one honeymoon. :)
Robert Bates, Jupiter, FL
Our organization has traveled with Allegro Holidays as a
group several times. Susan and Eva are currently organizing a very complex
trip for our group all over to Spain. Susan, our first-hand contact is
responsible for the day-to-day handling of our bookings as well as for
direct communication with our group members. She is accurate, pays
attention to small details and highly reliable. Eva was able to give us
many useful suggestions about itineraries, programs and practicalities.
We always enjoy our trips when they are coordinated by Allegro Holidays.
All of our arrangements went smoothly and were on schedule. I find it easy
and pleasant to deal with them. Since I am a very busy person, I greatly
appreciate that they take the burden of handling such intricate tours off
A.Cziffer, MD Algoma Group
I just wanted to email you and thank you for putting together all of our plans for our Russia trip. We had an awesome time....weather was great
(except for one day of heavy snow, the day after a sunny day in the high 70's!) One of the passengers was from Australia, so he had only seen snow
twice in his life, so he was very pleased. We told him we were from Iowa and had seen far too much snow this past winter!
The concerts were wonderful, the scenery outstanding, and we enjoyed meeting the passengers and interacting with the musicians as well. All of the
transfers you set up worked well and the staff onboard the ship was extremely accommodating and attentive.
We upgraded our room at the Volgograd Hotel for an additional $30 to get a suite, which was lovely!
When we arrived,
their military was practicing for their May 9 Freedom Day celebration, so we had a great view of the proceedings from our balcony!
All in all, it was a wonderful trip and thank you so much for your efforts and organization. We hope to take another music and/or river cruise to
Europe next year, so if you have any suggestions we would welcome your input.
Thanks so much! Jim and Marie Darby, Bettendorf, IA
Since visiting BadenBaden many years ago, I'd wanted to go
to a European spa. Also, I had always wanted to see Budapest and I enjoy
music and concerts, so this trip was a perfect combination for me. The
staff at the treatment department were very efficient and friendly and the
performances were of the highest quality. I would like to have stayed
longer and enjoyed more.
Heidi Kesler, Miami, Fl
We were absolutely delighted with the trip you arranged for
us to Naples, beautiful Amalfi and the romantic island of Capri. The
hotels were very nice, the performances wonderful, the scenery spectacular
and uplifting. It was a perfect second honeymoon.
John and Rebecca Tate, Dublin, Ireland
Our trip to Bavaria was wonderful. The scenery was
beautiful, the people pleasant, the beer plentiful and the castles right
from a fairytale . We had a great hotel in Munich right downtown that also
fitted our student budget. I never knew Germany was so attractive. Thank
you Allegro for making our trip unforgettable.
Lisa and Peter Pesic, Houston, TX
I just want to let you know that my husband and I really
enjoyed our recent trip to Warsaw and Krakow. The hotels were nice and
very well located and the side-trips were interesting. Everything was
waiting for us when we checked in at the hotel even down to a description
of which platform to look for our inter-city train. We certainly were not
regimented, as we might have been with a less independent tour. We had
plenty of free time to engage in "people watching" and just
enjoying the foreign cities. The Warsaw Chamber Opera was a delight. We
were pleased to find that the singers were excellent, the costumes and
sets were well done. We were close enough to the stage to see all facial
expressions of the cast. We were wishing that we had gone to 3 operas
instead of 2
Jane and Gary Simons, Vienna, VA
just to let you know what a great time we had in Egypt. Thank you for
all your advice and help to make this trip possible for us. It exceeded
our expectations and left us with many unforgettable memories of the
exotic and mysterious places we visited.
went smoothly as per the itinerary, the hotels were very nice and the
Nile cruise was a delightful experience. Everybody was very friendly and
helpful. Our guide was very knowledgeable, (the most knowledgeable we
have ever met). He was also very caring and thoughtful and looked after
us really well. We felt totally safe in Egypt, learned a lot of new things
reshaping some of our preconceived ideas.
will certainly recommend Allegro Holidays to friends who may be thinking
of visiting Egypt.
Ken Nichols, Chicago, IL
This is a short note to let you know what a wonderful experience I had on the Amadeus Princess Music Cruise.
The ship is excellent, the staff outstanding, the music was very good and the company was a pleasant surprise. There were only eight Americans out of one hundred passengers. We socialized with the British, Australian and South African people who were good company.
You may use my words in any advertising.
Joe Boudreau , San Jose CA.
The Amazon cruise on the Tucano exceeded all of our expectations. The boat
was very clean, staff was prompt when requests were made, food delicious
with the best fresh eggs I ever had!. I also loved the deserts and guides
outstanding knowledge of the area. Thanks for all the memories we will take
home with us!
Carol Noon, Frederichburg, VA
I am back from my independent Turkey tour since yesterday night. I am
pleased to let you know that I really enjoyed it. It was very well
organized, guides knew their history and all drivers were careful and on
time everywhere they had to pick me up. I will recommend your company to
all my English speaking friends who want to visit Turkey and other
Mediterranean countries where you provide your well organized tours. I
will not hesitate to contact you next time I need your service.
Have a pleasant day, and weekend,
Elizabeth Poirier, St, Mathieau,
We had a very nice time on the cruise. We were given a table for
just the two of us as we requested and everything worked out fine.
We had a 'Blue Danube' sign in a little stand on our
table. I told the staff that you had done a great job with
the booking and they were pleased to get the feedback. I was going
to write to you as well, but thought I would tell you when I booked
our next trip. We thought we would try the Rhine this time.
The music was wonderful and the Danube was lovely. We will
certainly go back there sometime.
Also the arrangements for the pick-ups were excellent.
