It was outstanding in every respect. I really cannot think of anything that could be improved. I think John Hauf was a key strength – he made the whole thing work, but I also think the 1st class approach to accommodations, food, etc. was also important. I did not realize that your approach was different from the others in terms of guide, personal attention, support etc., so that was a pleasant surprise.
