What Our Customers Say About GCT

We have returned safe, sound and very pleased. This is just a brief note to thank you for your hospitality, care and attention for details. We were a bit anxious before starting this tour but thanks to your organizing skills we have returned with great bundles of very happy memories. Your guides are all wonderfully dedicated individuals. They made our stay and movements easy, enjoyable and educational.

A small group from Toronto is soon departing for a 20 day tour with you. I have no doubt they would benefit from your expertise just as much as we did, or more. We have already talked about your organization and its people to a number of our friends. We will be happy to talk to any one else at your suggestion.

With all the best wishes
