Happy Traveler Comment
The Seine River cruise (preceded by a day in Paris) and then an extension to Madrid was one amazing trip, Wes Rowland did an amazing job of setting it up for us... He did everything so smoothly, and everything went according to plan... kudos to Wes, and although he's at a distance from me, I would use his services again in a heartbeat! — Joan
