Recent Praise from some of Our Guests
Our cruise could not have been better in terms of itinerary, schedule, service, food and accommodations. In short, the whole experience exceeded our expectations.
Regarding Tour Director John Frick
In this world where criticism flows more freely than praise, I must write to inform you that my wife, Jean, and I consider that John Frick is the most outstanding travel leader and professional that we have ever encountered. John is well-organized, communicates calmly and clearly, and demonstrates genuine interest and empathy for all those travelling with him. His knowledge of the destinations, historical context and cultures is impressive. Did I mention that he has a sense of humor? ....Most of all he cares about people, based on our personal observations throughout the cruise. Other participants on our tour also spoke highly of John and the staff.
This was the best trip we have ever taken, and we have taken 18 cruises.

The best I have ever been on.
The Antarctic trip was magical! I’ve traveled over six continents, stayed in the world’s most prestigious hotels, and had wonderful adventures but the Antarctica trip is top of the list. The solitary grandeur and beauty of the land, the charm of its wildlife, the comfort and luxury of the ship, the great lectures and perhaps, most of all, the kindness, helpfulness, and genuine enthusiasm of the crew made this my favorite trip ever! Many, many thanks!
Vera Van Atta
This was the best trip we have ever taken. The whole experience was magical…I especially appreciated the pains the lecturers and naturalists took in explaining why the Antarctic is so important and why we should keep it pristine and safe from exploitation (vested interest here – I’m a biologist.) …Our parkas with Antarctic patches have been the envy of all who have seen them. It’s finally too warm to wear them—damn—but as soon as the weather turns in the fall we’ll be sporting them and bragging about the wonderful voyage you folks engineered…
This trip far exceeded my expectations. The whole experience from start to finish was one of pure delight. I traveled alone and knew no one and everyone from staff to fellow travelers were above and beyond. I certainly would travel alone again if I wanted.
I’ve sailed many times and I have to say this was by far the very best voyage I’ve ever taken. My greatest thanks to you.

This was the best trip I’ve ever had… Travel Dynamics was terrific – they weren’t the least bit fazed by my desire to continue on to Istanbul. All the arrangements they made for me (airport transfers, guide, hotel) in Istanbul were PERFECT!!!

My only hesitation about taking another one of your tours would be that it might be a let-down after a really great trip like this one. I’m willing to take the risk.

You are doing everything right – your organization “knows the drill” and performs perfectly – keep doing it…you can count on me for future trips.

Certainly our favorite part of the trip was on board the Callisto. What a beautiful vessel and wonderful staff! The arrangements were comfortable and the service was impeccable. Everyone from the captain on down was courteous, helpful and friendly. The small size made us feel welcome and part of the family, not just a passenger on a trip. The food was excellent and the diverse range of local produce and goods was wonderful. We cannot say enough about the five-star service on board Callisto and would recommend it to anyone.
Corinthian II was a better “room” than the King George II, a five-star hotel.
The size of the Corinthian II was perfect. Not having assigned meal seating have us a chance to meet many wonderful and interesting people.
Carol S. Bernstein
The three Travel Dynamics personnel were outstanding. The best combination we have ever had on any cruise!! The ship, captain, crew, etcetera were also first-rate. The staff had us meet all other guests! The shore trips were very well run and informative.
Historic Cities cruise was as near-perfect as Travel Dynamics field staff could make it… Thank you for a great experience.
Robert Utly and Melody Webb
This trip was extraordinary – truly wonderful. The planning was excellent. No detail was overlooked. Special commendations for Lynn Hardcastle, Teresa Gibbons, and Harry Marin-Perera. They were consistently highly competent, good-spirited, and unflappable. The lecturers were uniformly outstanding. Yet each had his own style and area of expertise. The ship crew were terrific – always eager to help and serve. I would love to go on another Travel Dynamics trip and look forward to doing so.
