Traveler Testimonial
Aegean 2016 Expedition
"Margaret, this has been a beyond-fabulous trip.  All of us, even including the littlest ones, had an amazing time. I will write with more detail after returning but for now I will just say that for all of us the trip far exceeded the high anticipations we started out with. Everything was terrific.
