Alex's Notes

While conjuring up this itinerary the vivid images of the most beautiful and pristine landscapes captivated me. Valley's considered by many as the world's most beautiful, deep-blue lakes, Mountain peaks exceeding 12,000 feet, airy larch forest, and adorable villages led me to give the program a more fitting name—The Swiss Alps.

Add to this the famous cities of Zürich, Berne, Lucerne, Innsbruck, and Munich. Plus, unique experiences like samples of traditional Swiss Chocolate Pralines, a visit to a Swiss Working Farm, a trip to the top of Mount Pilatus, and, of course, the quaint little village of Oberammergau and its most amazing (chicken-skin) Passion Play and we have a Dream Journey in the making.

Mahalo to Dino Koftis, our recent Central Europe Director, for his expert advice on tweaking the program for our Travel 'Ohana. One could say Dino is a male version of our amazing and loving Caterina Thiel (our exclusive Grand Tour Director for years). Having worked this area of Europe for 29+ years, Dino knows his stuff. Thankfully, he has also agreed to be our Director on this journey—God Willing!

There are some hurdles when putting together a Passion Play program. It is very popular and the space is tight. There are two deposits required, both of which are non-refundable and I must estimate a few of possible costs which may arise in the next two years.

Luckily this will be my family's sixth time hosting Hawaii groups to the magnificent Passion Play and I have never increase the price of a program in my 27 years in the industry. With this experience and the help of my Globus Family, I plan to be as flexible as possible and bring down the cost. All part of my continuing goal to keep my Family's Tradition of Value, Service and Making Travel Dreams Come True.

Pray the program captivates you too!
