This was our first Europe trip together and my first birthday trip alone away from my family. We celebrated our birthdays in two beautiful countries with Access Travel.
We don’t get to travel that much, but when we do, we always make sure we get private tours and experiences to see everything as much as possible. We had wine tasting in the countryside on Ge’s birthday, we were away from the busy of Paris, we are so happy and grateful for every memory spent here. My birthday was extra special because Angely flew to Copenhagen to personally give us a private tour of the city. We really appreciated that. Access Travel knows how to work around special requests, and they always deliver quality service. Our hotels were so good, and we received cakes and flowers everywhere we went, even though we did not request for any of that. Always a fan of Access and how passionate they are about making people’s travel extra special.
What I love the most about this trip is the whole experience, the places we visited and the people we met from the group tour (all nice and punctual people).
I also loved our hotel in Rome (A.Roma Lifestyle Hotel); the rooms are huge and have a great breakfast buffet. The hotel is also very eco-friendly (which is rare); each floor has a water dispenser, and you can refill your own water bottle. The one thing that I won’t forget on this trip is Hallstatt, Austria (not included in our itinerary). I didn’t even know about this place until our tour driver and leader suggested it. I will come back for this trip to Amsterdam because we weren’t able to walk around that much, so I’d love to go back and visit the canals. I chose to #TravelWithAccess because I follow them on Instagram and have always loved the photos. I have also read and heard good reviews. I would recommend to them that they just keep it up because they already provide great service.
I travel to relax, unwind and get away from busy work life. We all need a break once in a while.
Also to explore other countries’ beauty and learn new values, cultures, and ways of living. Traveling is also another way of educating oneself because you learn so much along the way. The one thing that I will never forget on this trip is the friendship and camaraderie with our fellow group members and tour coordinator. And to top it all off, I can now finally tick Europe off my bucket list. BTW, Mr. Darwin Moises did a wonderful job! I chose to #TravelWithAccess out of curiosity. I want to know how you guys manage to get some of the biggest names in our local showbiz industry to travel with you.
