The trip was canceled because of the Corona Virus, but I assume it would have been great if we, you know, went on it.
By Emily Y for Longmeadow Orchestra and Choirs Musical Tour of Philadelphia on 24 Mar, 2020
Colombia was a delight and a revelation at every turn. The itinerary, the guide(s), the accommodations, and the activities that were arranged by Jim and Tour Resource Consultants exceeded expectations. There were no details left unanswered, and the entire journey was a master class in group travel choreography. :) It was a diverse and culturally immersive experience, and I would highly recommend traveling to Colombia to others. The people were warm and welcoming, and the sights truly unforgettable. Thank you Jim for yet another fantastic adventure! On to the next!

Everything was extremely well planned, including our plane reservations, hotel reservations, tube passes, and theatre tickets. We had plenty of free time and Amy and Joseph were super friendly and helpful with everyday details.

Hi Amy and Joseph, Thanks for planning this amazing trip! I liked that the hotel was so close to the Holborn and Tottenham tube stations. It made it very easy to get around, even from the airport! Loved the tour of the National Theatre also. It enhanced our experience of "Transitions" , even though Art and I had trouble understanding the play (No reflection on you. All of the other educators, understood it!). We liked all of the free time. There's so much to do, we couldn't do everything we wanted...next time! Thanks again, Benida & Art Sbicca

Excellent - although the only "common" time (which was perfect, by the way) was the Welcome Dinner and also at the theatres. It was great to get the transportation pass and our individual tickets. It was my second trip with them . Yes I would go again.
