I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

Journey through the Clouds - best holiday ever. Wonderful service on Rocky Mountaineer. Scenery was awesome, and we saw bears !! Our Tour Leader Debbie Skwark looked after us so well. She had a great sense of humour and made sure the holiday went without a hitch. We had a wonderful time.

I had a Saga Holiday in Cyprus. The Alexander the Great Hotel. I am 74 and through a three bad operations on my hip I am on crutches. The staff at this hotel could not have been greater. Mind you, I had booked with Saga who themselves choose the Hotels that will give the best Service. From door to door My Sister and I could not have had the Best. In the Restaurant Cafe Royal, I had help at every moment, The Manager and the 'Chefs' hastened to carry my tray and help me back to my table. The Saga Representative was always there in the Office or contactable and as well as dealing with two emergencies, still managed to deal with the rest of his ‘Flock' so to speak. I will go there again, with no hesitation. Thank You SAGA. Vivienne Bilney

Saga's arrangements for the disabled group of travellers was appalling!

Be warned if you are disabled! I travelled with my 89 year old Mother in June this year with Saga to Lake Garda and an Adriatic cruise. My mother has disability problems and we used a wheelchair for her to get around. Mostly this was fine till the final day where we were told we would be spending it in Venice. Venice is not wheelchair friendly! Saga's arrangements for the disabled group of travellers was appalling! They arranged for us to travel into the city using vaporetto boats that are small, cramped and have narrow unstable ramps with no handrails to enter the boats. Inevitably there was going to be an accident and my Mother had a nasty fall getting onto the last boat of 4 we had to use. I spoke to Saga immediately on our return to make them aware just what a dangerous situation they had put their elderly disabled guests in. Their response has been to lie about the circumstances surrounding my Mothers fall. I was not looking for compensation in any way. All I asked was they admit they got it wrong and to promise not to ever put people in that situation again. We will never travel with such a 'caring' company again!
