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. 

Dave and Dororthy Bagley , Hudson MA

Good morning Susan, on behalf of my wife and myself we want to express our gratitude for this wonderful experience, thanks to you and the people in Vienna that are engaged in this event.    

We are very satisfied with your professionalism and experience to make this event so enjoyable for us, it is a once in a lifetime experience.  We will let our friends know, if they show interest in attending in the  following years we will highly recommend you.


Thanks again and Happy New Year!       Alina & Roberto Aguero  MIami, FL

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.

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!!!   Everything went so well, there were guides waiting and transfer agents at all the stops. The Hotels were perfect, the Inca sites, the tour guides were fantastic. There was a gentleman by the name of Melitor who handle 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 value the Peruvians place on the tourist industry, made it a wonderful vacation.

       Thank You Again, Paul Haggerty, Mendota Hights, MN

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!

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 Berlin Philharmonics.  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. This musical cruise is perfect for me.

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 Holidays again.

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!!

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 us.

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.

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 co-operated.                                                  
                                                                                                       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

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.

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 arises.

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.

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. :)

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 my shoulders

I just wanted to email you and thank you for putting together all of our plans for our Russia trip. We had an awesome 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.

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.

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.

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

Eva, 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.
Everything 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.
We will certainly recommend Allegro Holidays to friends who may be thinking of visiting Egypt.

Hi Debby,

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.

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, QU

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.
