A wonderful experience exceeded my expectation, to visit and learn many beautiful places which I had heard of, met warm and kind new friends in the program. Most treasured was a group picnic arranged and prepared with care by the leader for us to enjoy the uniqueness of a beautiful village and a vineyard. What more can one expect for a memorable trip!

This program was a wonderful experience. It was a pleasure to spend the time with such wonderful people and especially with our extraordinary guide, Christian. Our naturalist guide Michael was also informative and entertaining. All of the local guides helped us to better understand where we were and what we were seeing. The physical activity was enjoyable although it forced me out of my comfort zone on occasion. All of this happened in such beautiful places. A great trip!!!

Exciting and rewarding view into life on another continent and languages. So looking forward to selection another trip.

If you want good walks (read as hikes in some areas) and small towns/cities in Austria, Germany & France, this is absolutely the trip for you. It is very accurately described as Moderately Challenging, but it is so much fun and you get to see areas that are not typical tourist areas. The Alsace region of France is beautiful, the Black Forest region of Germany is amazing and the Austrian Alp area that you visit contains many, many sights that you would not see on a normal visit to Austria. I cannot say enough good things about the trip and the group leader (Christian) and the fun that I had with the group of people that were on the trip with me.
