A travel agent recommended another company but they were really geared to people traveling on cruise ships. Scantours was on the same screen so I clicked and read about your tour to St Petersburg. But it was your work that was crucial, because once we were communicating with you, we got a sense that the company was not a con but was willing to work with us, answer our questions, make special arrangements for us. That gave us the confidence to believe that when we got to Helsinki, all the services we had paid for would materialize, the promised guides would appear, etc, etc. Scantours is lucky to have you, plus it is good to know they have an office and agent in the US.

Hi Berniece,
I just had a long chat with the travelers. The Scantour trip was excellent!! Everything was well paced and went off without a single hitch.

Sept 30, 2017 "Magic of Scandinavia and the Norwegian Fjords"
Dear Ulla,

I am happy to share my thoughts about our Scandinavian trip. We chose this trip because it included every city we wanted to see and the Sognefjord, but still allowed us a lot of free time without prearranged meals and activities. The half day city tours were perfect for us, and we took advantage of some of the optional tours too, but we researched a lot on our own and spent our free time seeing those sites that might not have appealed to the larger group. So I think the trip was really a great success for us!

I think that the one thing that made our trip exceptional was the expertise of our guide, Horacio Cavilli. I don't know if you know him personally, so in case you don't let me give you a little background. He was born in Italy, raised in Buenos Aires, and has lived in Copenhagen for many years. He was fluent in English and Spanish and Portuguese, although he was humble about his knowledge of Portuguese. When we first met our group in the hotel lobby in Copenhagen, I was a little apprehensive upon learning that Paul and I were the only English speakers in our group of 27. Everyone else was from Argentina or Brazil, so all information would have to be provided in three languages. My apprehension soon disappeared, as Horacio was expert at making sure all information was given in all three languages. (It even improved my Spanish a little.) He also was extremely knowledgeable concerning Danish, Norwegian and Swedish history, which helped immensely as we journeyed from place to place and learned how the history of the three countries was intertwined. He was energetic, cheerful even when there were minor inconveniences or bad weather, positive and kind with everyone. He was also willing to discuss pros and cons of Scandinavian social democracies while always being appropriate and respectful. And he had a terrific sense of humor! I'm not sure if there is some way you can convey this to his employer (apparently Dorothy Tours?) or whether there is a way I could do that myself. If so, please let me know how to do that.

Many thanks,
Madelaine (Einbinder)
