It is easy to overestimate the power of those devices in our palms. To glance down instead of looking up at the world. Yes, there is an app for that. But you could ask the person next to you. She is surely more charming than Siri.

Our European staff people are our biggest strength: practical problem solvers with deep knowledge, warmth, and the personal touch that has launched many memorable adventures.

The world is full of fascinating people. Ask anyone!
