Their agent was very thorough. Loved the follow up and make sure we had everything covered. I wish they could have booked my pre and post hotel stays where I wanted. But that is a small price to pay. Good detail and everything was as planned. CIE has had great drivers and guides. They move so everything stays smooth. They try and insure your needs and whims are met. I have traveled there 9 times and CIE's tours have been among the easiest and most inclusive.

Our travel agent, Sharon, from AAA was wonderful. She took the time, gave us great advise and suggestions

Service:
You booked the flights (for my son and I) with American Airlines this past Summer. When all flights were cancelled and we could not make our trip with you, I called and asked for a different time so that we could take the trip I had purchased from you. You refused to do that and I lost approximately $3,600.00. I contacted your Admin dept. and spoke with Barbara Keough. She promised to look into a discount for another tour with you and said she'd call me back. She never did! This would have been my 3rd tour with you. I'd still like to travel with you, but only with a significant discount. I also asked to speak with your CEO, but Barbara would not give me the email address of your CEO. I believe that since you chose the airline and they defaulted, you should have accepted at least some responsibility for that and compensated us in some way, even in a small way. My name is Vernon Chrystal and my telephone number is: 937-872-0124. IF you truly believe in good customer service and would like us to continue on as customers to tour with you again, I ask you again, please compensate us in some meaningful way. Respectfully, Vernon Chrystal
