" The Everybody’s needs were catered from the youngest to the elderly. We will remember this for the rest of our lives. They helped in every way possible. They never left us alone to make sure we are well looked after. The meals are absolutely brilliant! This is worth every penny. "
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. "

" 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. "
