“This was our 4th Enrichment Journey. We've booked quite a few other packages with Online Vacation Center including VIPs and my comments below serve as a comparison of this to all our other vacations through OVC and everyone else! As a reference, we also have 3 more EJs booked within the next 15 months, so we can be considered a pretty steady and reliable source of customer feedback. This was an outstanding EJ. The itinerary was fantastic, hotel's mostly top notch except for Stratford on Avon, and the tour guide was AMAZING. Gearoid O. was, far and away, the best tour guide we've ever experienced, anywhere in the world. He consistently awed us with his organizational skills, historical knowledge, entertaining personality and enthusiasm well beyond anything we could have expected. He not only delivered to the detailed itinerary but, with seemingly endless energy, went well beyond those requirements in both content and time commitment. None of us had ever seen such seemingly boundless energy and willingness to share in his enthusiasm for the itinerary presented. At the end of a long day of touring when evenings were technically on our own, he consistently offered to show us the best local pubs and restaurants and usually joined us, sharing even more of his incredible knowledge of the area. He even showed up at a number of ports to check up on our well-being including South Hampton, just to be sure we were well taken care of on our transit to Heathrow. To the group responsible for awarding contracts to tour companies, please note this gentleman and his company, I think G2 Travel. You can't do better in my experience and I would predict that of the other 28 members of our tour. This was a truly unforgettable experience, only made possible by the quality of the tour guide.” - Carl H. 8/2019

“This was the best trip we've ever taken and it was due to our China Guide Christina who travelled throughout China with us; she was phenomenal. Best we've ever encountered!” - Lynne C. 4/2019
“We have done several EJ adventures: Wine Country, Machu Picchu twice, Iguazu Falls, Pandas and more. But India, OMG it was near the top if not the best! It was the perfect mix of sights, food and culture: Tuc-Tucs to the UAE and finally Singapore. And the cruise was the finishing touch of the adventure. We love Celebrity. We can't thank Lauren and Sophia for all their effort in making our EJ experiences the best! One last note. We heard a lot of positive feedback from out fellow travelers.” - Robert C. 4/2019
“The Land Tour was an excellent experience, very well coordinated, and providing a more insightful look at the destination. Hotel and food very good, and the guides were knowledgeable and pleasant.” - Pedro H. 4/2019

“We just returned from a wonderful trip - Enrichment Journey to South America and Machu Picchu. OMG... Everything ran like a clock -- hotels and guides were fantastic -- and could not have been better.” - Jeff F. 4/2019
“Our trip was a wonderful experience and I want to be sure that our guide, Christina, receives special thanks and reward for her outstanding leadership. She met every need, including luggage to airports, providing boarding passes at airports, medical needs for some, dietary needs for others, as well as wake-up calls, scheduling for sites and classes - on and on. Absolutely the best guide we have experienced. The trip was well planned, a bit hard with lots of walking and early wake-ups, which were all understandable in order to see the many sites of China. The trip to Beijing was a wonderful break and a chance to see Christina again.” - Jennie P. 4/2019
“This was our first Enrichment Journey. We did not know what to expect. Wow! Were we ever pleased! Nice flight and our guide was right there waiting on us. She turned out to be the 'best of the best' tour guides ever. Her name is Cintia and words can't tell you how great she was! The tango show was fabulous. The asado at La Candelaria was fantastic. And there is no way to describe Iguazu Falls....what an 'enriching' experience. Our cruise was wonderful—dinner service (Francis and Jose) was impeccable and even though you probably had no control over it, our tablemates were perfect. Annie, our cabin steward, was amazing. Entertainment was outstanding, and again, best of the best is the only way to describe the cruise director, Alejandro. Our shore excursions in Tierra del Fuego and Punta Loma were great, especially the Enrichment Journey excursion at Montevideo to the winery and the tango exhibition. The dancers got everybody involved. After debarkation, our tour guide met us to take a city tour and a lovely lunch before heading to the airport. This trip ranks near the top of my all-time favorites!” - Brenda E. 2/2019

"We appreciate being able to experience many cultural activities (calligraphy, tea ceremony, tai chi, etc) as well as see amazing sights that we have heard so much about. The trip was very busy with not much down time but that’s why we chose this Journey - to see and experience as much as possible of Asia in a relatively short period of time. The Enrichment Journey itinerary more than fulfilled our wish. Flights, guides, tours, meals, accommodations, the whole package - extremely well done, as always!" - Rob & Val 11/2017
"Best trip ever, [Journey to Geneva, Provence and Santorini]." - Danity L. 7/2017
"All the arrangements made for us worked perfectly. The trip was long but we experienced no delays and everything was timed perfectly. Good job air dept. Qatar Airlines is absolutely wonderful. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our flights with them. Spoils us for other airlines. Anyway, wanted to let you know we are in our hotel in Singapore and couldn't be happier." - Eileen A. 3/2017
"Enrichment Journey offered us a chance of a lifetime. Not only did we see some of the world's oldest sights, made by a civilization who's inventions, are still being used today, but we also came away with new knowledge, experience and insights into the life of our Asian brethren. We have already made reservations with Enrichment Journey for another experience." - Daniel S. 2/2017
"During our recent trip, we ran into a slight bump in our journey. While in Vienna, I went online to check in with the airline. While there, I attempted to pre-pay for extra luggage. After working through the site and providing credit card info, the site informed me that they wished to charge me more than €300 rather than the expected €35. I was unable to resolve the difference, and just left the transaction expecting to complete the process at the terminal. The airline cancelled our booking (although I was checked in) because they could not complete the credit card transaction. We did not find this out until we were attempting to physically check in for the flight at the terminal. The OVC (EJ) representative stepped right in and got everything straightened out helping us hurdle the language barrier and work through the bureaucracy of the airline. Without her assistance, we would have probably been left on the tarmac in Vienna. Thanks again for the great service that helped us have a fantastic trip." - James B. 11/2016
"I just returned from an EJ trip to Japan and China. I wanted to thank you for the great job that EJ does for it's clients and at the same time give kudos to our tour guide Peter from Beijing. He did a fantastic job for our group and I just wanted you to know that he is the best. Also CiCi in Xian was also great. Hope to see you on another EJ trip sometime in the future" - Neil M. 11/2016
"Iceland was amazing. The food and the locations we went to were great." - Paul W. 6/2016
"Renee Radabaugh (Cultural Exp) made the trip. She was absolutely wonderful. She dealt with changes on the fly very, very well. She could not have done a better job." - L. Wolff 5/2016
"We wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our recent Enrichment Journeys trip in South America. First class all the way!! From the moment we came through customs in Buenos Aries to Juan Carlos shepherding us through the chaos of Lima Airport we were so well looked after. The Infinity was a lovely ship with great ports of call, excellent entertainment, wonderful weather, even around the Horn. The land portion of the tour with ... guides was fabulous. We normally travel on our own so it was very nice to not have to worry about anything except taking photos and drinking in the experience. We had great expectations for this trip and they were all met or exceeded. Fabulous guides who had the patience of saints, quality hotels, comfortable buses, excellent food. All in all, a trip of a lifetime. We are already recommending it to friends." - Michele and Doug 4/2016
"I just returned home [from] one of the most amazing experiences of my life, traveling with Enrichment Journeys to China and Eastern Asia. It was a first class trip. Thank you for all your work in answering my questions and making the trip perfect for my needs. I would love to use Enrichment [Journeys] again as I look at travel to the Holy Land." - Sharon 3/2016
"We loved everything Enrichment Journeys put together. It truly was incredible to see Iguazu Falls, and we were fortunate enough to be able to see the Falls up close before they closed many trails due to flooding. Our guide was terrific and the Loi Suites very very comfortable." - Val and Keith 3/2016
"I am very happy to say that ALL aspects of of our trip were excellent!! The China package was exceptional. All the hotels, meals, tours, guides, transportations, etc., were outstanding and top-notch. I couldn't be more pleased."
"What an experience! The trip was just amazing. We had three extraordinary guides: Julie, Alan, and Susan. Their logistical expertise, knowledge, warmth and good humor were unparalleled. The drivers were also very good. The buses were comfortable. The fellow travelers were a most compatible and convivial group. The venues we visited were spectacular. We learned so much every day. The evening entertainments were fantastic. We are very glad we pursued this trip with many others who had previous positive experiences with Enrichment Journeys and we've all agreed to share future travel possibilities around the globe."
"25 day Holy Land... Can’t say enough good things. Everything [was] coordinated, great guides, bus on time getting to each location. This was a great trip and other travelers felt the same way. Yes the cost was high, but would never have been able to do it for less. Because the agenda and hotels were arranged, it removed much stress. Would I do another trip with Enrichment Journeys… YES."
"Just wanted to send u a quick note from the end of our fantastic journey. It has been a wonderful and educational trip. Everything has been top notch during our travels in China, and of course on the Celebrity cruise too. We would highly recommend "Enrichment Journeys" and probably do another trip... in the future. Dick has been quite a trooper thru it all and even climbed The Great Wall!!"
"We had a marvelous trip with Katherine as our trip guide and Yoandrry as our local guide. Two people who went out of their way and over the top to make our trip wonderful. Everything was well organized to every detail. Cuba is a country not to be missed before it is over developed."
"What a fabulous trip! So many amazing sites!"
"This was a fantastic trip! Tour guides and hotels were outstanding... Enjoyed the Century and our fellow passengers. Everything about this trip was seamless and well organized. I am a well-seasoned independent traveler, and this trip far exceeded all of my expectations. It was fabulous!"
"Our trip has been wonderful and we have one last stop to go in Bangkok before we get to Singapore... This has been a pinch me am I here trip."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our Enrichment Journey to Dubai and Bangkok and the cruise from Singapore. Everything was just perfect on the entire vacation, and Val and I want to pass on to you our high commendations for this trip, our second Enrichment Journey. The tours, guides, hotels and airline arrangements pre-arranged by Enrichment Journeys were out of this world and we had absolutely no complaints. The hotels, especially the Dubai Marriott and Dusit Thani in Bangkok were first class all the way... congratulations on arranging these for our tour group. All our fellow travelers on this trip also seemed very impressed with this vacation package and felt that the value was outstanding. Now, a number of these first-time Enrichment Journey customers that we met recently want to join us on next year's Enrichment Journey to the Australia Outback and New Zealand cruise. Please pass on our 100% customer satisfaction for this Enrichment Journey to your staff. Thanks so much for all your work on our behalf. We had a wonderful and truly memorable vacation."
"Our expectations were definitely exceeded. The itinerary was great: the tours, guides, food were excellent. The ship: beautiful! I especially enjoyed the artists' village tour in Budapest. Salzburg: the free time was too long. The hotel in Budapest and Prague were very nice. Joey had also recommended s hotel in Amsterdam Hotel Citadel. It was very centrally located and very nice. The transition to hotels and ship, there was no wait time. Evidence of very good logistics in the background for that to happen. Thanks! David, your president, was traveling with us and was wonderful. His recommendations and attention to detail couldn't have been nicer. I believe we got the Royal treatment! We will definitely recommend Enrichment Journeys, Ama Waterways and Online Vacation Center to friends and family."
