Travel with Gerhard’s Odysseys
The finest hotels: Having a comfortable setting to return to at the end of an exciting day is of the utmost importance. The hotels on my tours are always chosen for their central location, ambiance, service and value. We will always be within short walking distance of the shops, museums and other local attractions. Many of the hotels I select are amongst the best in Europe.
European dining at its best: Culinary creations are as much a reflection of a nation's culture as the art and history, and it therefore goes without saying that meals are an important part of the travel experience. Dinners are assured to be fresh and savory, reflective of the region and country, and served in a comfortable setting that allows you to share the day's events with your fellow travelers. Breakfast each morning is served buffet style with a variety of fresh rolls and breads, yogurts, cereals, meats, cheeses, fruit and eggs. A vital part of breakfast, orange and other fruit juices, as well as a choice of freshly brewed coffee or teas, are also included.
Small groups: A smaller group makes it possible for everyone to meet new friends and to receive personal attention from the tour escort. It also allows for more comfort in our large motor coach and better service in hotels and restaurants. Rest assured you will be traveling with people who are enjoyable companions and who share common interests.
Since 1974: This year marks my 44th season of offering tours. A reputation for value and quality has brought with it continuous and consistent praise from satisfied repeat travelers, some of whom have been to Europe with me as often as thirty times!
