    I have flown both of those airlines. They are great!! I would suggest Business or First class tickets, but that is a budget item. We took this trip in 2011 and flew into Istanbul. We flew Turkish airlines, first class. Comfortable, superb service, great food (chef on board), and nice lay flat seats. I flew Turkish airlines from Venice to Kilimanjaro, through Istanbul, first class this past July. We flew Lufthansa in 2003, first class to Frankfurt, and in 2013, first class to Heathrow. They were great also. I don't think you can go wrong with either one. I like them better than any US airlines I have flown on. Now, I did use miles for those trips.

    The Tauck New Mexico trip was awesome. The landscapes are so beautiful, and the people are extremely friendly. We would would have liked it if there was more time to look in the shops at some of the destinations such as Bandelier National Monument. I heard that the book store was very good, and would have loved to look in there. Not enough time to see the sites, and the shop. We learned a lot on this trip. The tour guide, Lolly, was super informative. The other guests on our tour were all so nice and friendly. Everyone was supportive and helpful. This was a wonderful experience that will be treasured for a long time.

    I am concerned about the big numbers on the river cruises but have not been on any yet.

    I have done a river cruise and the big numbers are only while you are on the boat. For shore excursions, there are smaller groups of about 30 - 35. At each location the groups went in different directions so one was seeing a particular site while another was somewhere else. By the end of the touring day, everyone had seen everything.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Robert (“Bud”) Frame about his family’s Tauck Bridges experience in Italy. The trip was the culmination of two years of planning, the time it took to get 25 Frame family members aligned and ready to head to Rome as a single group last April. “Just finding the time to meet to talk about the...

I’m not a scary movie fan, but come Halloween… I do love a good thrill, especially one with a sense of humor. And that’s just what comes to mind when I think of Ichabod Crane, plodding home alone on a dark autumn’s night, past a menacing swamp, across a haunted bridge, after an evening of ghostly tales… as he...
