I loved the different character of each Greek island, and the wonderful insight we got into each one from the three local guides. I loved that they weren't touristy. The experiences of small tavernas in the villages were high points. Anon
Gene Goldberg was superb! His pre-trip newsletters were extremely informative. He responded to emails immediately and answered any question I had. All trip information he sent was helpful.

Gene is a gentle, thoughtful leader who took into account a wide range of personalities. Deb A., Seattle, WA
Good advice on conserving water and minimizing trash. Efforts to not only leave nothing behind, but also picking up others trash on the trails.

Gene was great company and became a great friend. He was always engaged, informative and good natured. I loved his sense of humor. John M., Cincinnati, OH
I can't say enough good things about Deirdre Butler's leadership. I've been a classroom teacher for 30 years and have also worked on and off with Outward Bound. I've met a lot of amazing educators and outdoor professionals. Deirdre ranks among the very best I've ever seen. Brian W.,Silver Spring, MD
The location and itinerary were terrific! Dartmoor was even better than I had read about or imagined!

Mrs. Butler was the quintessential leader--gracious, efficient, and cheerful. This was my second trip with her and I would highly recommend her.

I was impressed that everyone's needs were accommodated, whether they be food, medical, or transportation assistance. This was all done without fuss. Elizabeth G., Las Vegas, NV
It was the most memorable vacation that I have had in more than a decade, in large part because of the trip leader's careful planning and concern for the needs of the group.
