We had a great trip. Lisbon is such a beautiful, cosmopolitan city. Fun to walk around if you're feeling adventurous. Quest did a great job of taking care of the trip details so that we could just relax, explore and enjoy. We also loved, loved, loved Madeira! An island full with a million things to do! We can't wait to go back and spend more time there! Again, Quest Travel took care of the details so our transfers, flights and tours were all exceptional and our guides were top notch. I would definitely travel with Quest Travel Adventures again. Their staff was a pleasure to work with.

This trip was so much fun. I told my travel advisor that I wanted to visit as many hot springs as possible and she created an itinerary that included a visit every day! Quest Travel Adventures carefully planned the trip so we were driving on safe roads that didn't have any issues with closures due to bad weather. The accommodations were perfect - simple and clean. Reykjavik was an amazing city to explore on foot and we spent a day on the hop on/off bus so we could learn and see as much as possible. Each activity planned was so much fun, my favorite being the hike on the glacier. This trip was really well organized and I all definitely travel with Quest again in the future.

We had an amazing time in the Azores! The food was by far my favorite part of the trip. The natural beauty of the islands was so impressive and I felt like a professional photographer as every picture I took looked like it could go in a catalogue. The trip details were planned from start to finish and we felt taken care of along the way by our Quest Travel Adventures account manager and all the people they connected us to along the way in the islands. I think that the day trip to Pico island was my favorite part, as it was so different from all the other islands. I highly recommend Quest Travel Adventures to arrange your Azores trip and I can't wait to go back.
