“Our trip to Paris and Provence was a glorious celebration of classical music, art, and of course, great food and wine! Of special note, the first class music performances, the common interests shared by an unusually congenial bunch of fellow travelers, and being so well cared for by our tour guides.”
~ Don & Marilyn M., Boston
