Just wanted to share our experience of the European Memories Tour we took. I have only good things to say about the trip.
All the arrangements made, be it, the bus, the hotels we stayed in, the food was all excellent. A special mention about our Tour Manager, who was very informed about the places and was very friendly. He made sure everything was done in time.
All in all a very memorable trip. Will definitely recommend Vacations Exotica to my friends & family. Keep up the good work and Thank you.

All's well, that ends well, and Thank God, that finally, Vacations Exotica’s efforts made our dream come true!!
Our Tour Manager for the ‘European Memories' package, was simply superb with his meticulous planning and management of the Europe itinerary. He was a picture of care and confidence, the group's favourite 'Man Friday' and 'Good Samaritan'!!
For senior citizens like us, he was respectful and caring like a son. We would always love to him as our 'Tour Manager' during our future trips with Vacations Exotica'!!

Me and my husband finalized the European Memories package from Balmer Lawrie – Vacations Exotica after a thorough consideration of more than a dozen packages. This package offers visit to places like Vatican and Geneva which was not offered by others at affordable rates that too inclusive of meals.
The tour was excellently planned with maximum coverage of destinations without being hectic for us.
Further, the food arrangement in this package was also superb. Our group was small and full of friendly and helpful people, which made us journey more enjoyable.
Great teamwork and support by Balmer Lawrie & Vacation Exotica. Keep going !!

We have been associated with Vacations Exotica and team since 2010. Touchwood! They’ve never let us down. This European Memories trip was a pleasant one with cherished memories. Right from booking to boarding, we were comforted by the team. Our tour manager was outstanding. All promises were kept & we even had an opportunity to explore more. That’s always their signature quality. As a family, we enjoyed a lot. Looking forward to traveling with Vacations Exotica more.
