Kathleen and Aileen, Northampton
” We are very happy the way it is handled especially the small details that you will not find from other big companies. I was skeptical because I have never been a person who likes walking tour, but because they are very helpful, I was able to do the 14 days. I don’t like it, I LOVE IT! For the money we paid, it is incredible! It is a trustful company. ”
” The restaurants and accommodation are perfect. DLI is a company to be trusted. We have 50 people on our trip with all different age ranges from 22-70s and we have 2 persons with minor physical disability but they were able to cater it very well. ”
Martin and Ernie, northampton
” Dynamic, fun and spiritual. This is a holiday of a lifetime that combines prayer, fun, and food in an atmosphere of friendship in an environment that will relax and inspire your body and soul. ”
” Many in our group were surprised that DLI exceeded our expectations. We are doing much more than what we paid for. Without a doubt, we will recommend this to other organizers. I knew that they are keeping track of the people in my group. It felt more like a family at the end of the trip. ”
