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.
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.
We were supposed to book our 2013 honeymoon trip with Access Travel, back then we didn’t have enough savings to have the trip that we wanted. But it has always been my dream to try your services.
We wanted to try your group tours, but when they did not push through, we decided to try your private tours. And you did not disappoint! We’re so happy. My husband even commented that he now understood why a lot of people go to you for their trips.
