LDTG TRIP REVIEW

"FANTASTIC! Even though I missed the ZOOM calls, I appreciate all the communication from Liz. The trip was AMAZING! I enjoyed all the group tours and all the restaurants. I really liked that it was a small group of 6. I like that there was free time built into the schedule. This allowed me to do an activity on my own. And Liz. I cannot say enough good things about this phenomenal woman. From walking us individually to our rooms, our personalized gifts, to waking up early to say “Good-bye,” to each of us, Liz Desir is everything and more that you want in a tour operator. As I said to Liz, “she’s got the tour game and gone.” She is truly a gem and I look forward to traveling with her again."
