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. ”
