My trip was everything I hoped for and more. Peter was able to talk to local people from my great-grandparents town. Some let me into the house my great-great-aunt lived in, and they gave me pictures of her and showed me pictures they had bought her. They even told me more about her then anyone in the family knew. We also met with the oldest lady in town who shared stories with me about World War II, and we were able to go to church with her in the church in my great-grandparents town. It was a trip no other company could arrange or replicate. It was my trip of a lifetime. Sara V., Minnesota

Our memories of our trip to the Czech Republic will be a lasting memory & especially the surprise at the dance Saturday night. The 40th Anniversary gift is precious to both of us and your thoughtfulness by having a cake will never be forgotten by Richard & I plus other memories of our trip. Your friends, Richard & Eleanor B.

The Plzen, Czech Republic Liberation Festival tour had been posted in “The Bulge Bugle” which is in Feb. issue of the official publication of the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge Inc. I mailed in my Reservation Application for myself and my son who will accompany me. I called about a week later to check on our confirmation and was informed that the trip was canceled due to lack of participants. I then called Cook Travel and talked to the owner explaining my problem and he was very helpful in locating another tour agency by the name of Linconnection USA / Czech Tours & Travel out in Lincoln, Nebraska. The owner's name is Peter Walter and he said that they have another tour starting at Omaha Beach, France continuing to Paris, Belgium, Luxembourg and ending up in Plzen. So he suggested that he could include us onto the end of that group's tour when it ended up at Plzen. I e-mailed Peter Walter my airline flight schedules so that he could coordinate the hotels with arrivals or departures. Thank God that sure took some planning, except it saved the trip. ... At the end of the tour my son Marty quotes: It was a trip of a lifetime. And I have to agree it was fabulous, exciting and beyond my expectations. As Peter Walter, Tour Director of Linconnection USA / Czech Tours & Travel hit the nail right on the head when he says: “You don't just visit the country - you experience it with us ”. Norval

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for recently providing Stephanie and myself with an unforgettable tour of the Czech Republic. We had an absolutely great time and you were so helpful in guiding us through the trip. We know that there were things (extra side tours, etc.) that you didn’t have to do but took it upon yourself to do them anyway, and we want you to know that we appreciated your additional efforts very much. We saw much more than we expected and the entire trip was outstanding. We had a fantastic time and we’ll remember it forever. We really saw much more than we expected and it was great. Very truly yours, Michael H., Nebraska
Nelson & Lori H., Oregon
... we enjoyed the trip, ... Vienna was great and we really enjoyed the hotel and food. We also enjoyed the church where the "Sound of Music" was made. Munich was fun and also the English Garden. Pilsen was fun as usual and the hotel was outstanding. We enjoyed all the activities for the Liberation Celebration. The roast duck in Ceske Budejovice restaurant was wonderful. We liked the Cesky Krumlov tour as well as in Prague and we were glad we got to go to St. Havel's church for Mass. The walking tour and boat trip was fun and visiting the museum of Charles Bridge was very informative. The Pizza Parlor where we had lunch was very interesting - I really liked the trains delivering the drinks. The Folklore program was great. Yes, you can use our names as a reference as we have enjoyed all the trips we have taken with you. Nelson & Lori H.

Jean T., Nebraska
I want to thank you so much for the spectacular trip to the Czech Republic that you put together for us last May. You did everything possible to make everything run smoothly. It was far beyond my expectations. The honoring our World War II. vets was the biggest surprise & also very heart warming. Sometimes we are led to believe our European allies have completely forgotten what we did, but not true at least in the Czech Republic. Seeing the part of the country that we covered so completely was wonderful as that is where my ancestors came from. I found it to be a beautiful country with very friendly people. Also thank you so much for the wonderful disc of pictures. Such a keepsake. The people on our trip were just great. I would truly recommend your trip to anyone wanting to visit the Czech Republic. Thanks again. Sincerely Jean T.

Duane M., Illinois
Virleen, Brett and I would like to thank you for a most wonderful trip. We were able to see and do so many different things. The Folk Festival was so beautiful with the many different villages represented. I especially liked the brewery, but the highlight of the trip for all of us was visiting the farm and the people there - their home, food & hospitality. All the people on the trip were nice, it was a great group. Peter, you did a great job, in fact you did much more than you needed to by having such a nice cake, rose pin and card for our 46th Anniversary. You will never know how much that meant to us. Sincerely, Duane M.

Peter, this was by for one of the best tours I have taken. It was so well planned. I enjoyed the beauty of the Czech Republic – all the sightseeing, entertainment, food and “shop-shop-shopping”. Family is treasuring all I bought them. Thank you sincerely for being a great tour guide and helping us so many ways – by all means for making my birthday so special. Thank you for everything.

Peter, I thought you may like to have a copy of the picture that I consider to be the best one taken on our entire “RELAX TOUR”. Anyway, you provided the opportunity for this humorous shot and I just couldn’t resist the temptation. Thanks for a very memorable tour of the Czech republic. Lorraine and I really enjoyed the trip. You provided us with a very interesting cross section of the Czech homeland. We are still reliving those days every time we view our snapshots or view the videos. May all your future tours just get better and better. Lorraine & Ray C., California
Marcella P., Nebraska

Dear Peter, First I want to thank you for a lovely trip. It was well organized. The tour was great and of course the highlights was the river cruise and our farewell dinner.

Ardeanne G., Florida
Thanks so much for the 8x10 photo of our travel group. I still marvel at all the interesting and fun things you were able to incorporate into our tour. It was all so enjoyable, it's impossible to select a favorite happening. Meeting our living Czech cousin and her family was a delight, and it was especially nice having you to translate. My photos bring back many happy memories. Thanks again. My best regards, Ardeanne G.
Helen R., Texas
Dear Peter, I want to thank you for stopping in Poděbrady – to look up relatives & visit the cemetery. I know this was not scheduled, so we really appreciate it. Also want to thank you for all we saw and did. It was great. “Czechy” (Bohemia) is surely one of the most beautiful countries I have seen. Thanks for making it possible for us to enjoy it. On behalf of my 3 daughters and my 2 sisters and myself we wish to thank you again and may our Lord bless your every effort in your tours. Helen R., Texas

Dave & Barb L., Nebraska
Let me first say, “Thank for the June Trip”. It was a wonderful trip for us. The group was a great gang and we made some friendship that are the best part of joining in a group. Your program was outstanding. Thanks again for the special care you took to keep the group moving and altogether. Dave & Barb L., Nebraska
Ivan & Wilma V., Nebraska
Dear Peter, Thank you for a wonderful trip. I sure want to go back again and wouldn’t look for another tour. You knew where to go to find what we wanted to find. The hotels, meals and tours were great. In all I think it was a well planned trip. Ivan & Wilma V., Nebraska
Luis & Mildred G., Nebraska
Dear Peter, My wife and I wish to thank you for the delightful and unforgettable tour you arranged in the Czech Republic this June. Your scheduling and accommodation arrangements were virtually flawless. Our personal enjoyment was enhanced further by the fact that ten other members of our families were included in the tour through you without effort on our part. Our hotels and meals were of highest quality. Every day was a different experience. We had “fun”. I shall remember always my birthday celebration in the wine cellar in Morava. I might add that my two young grandsons seemed to have even more fun than the grown-ups. You accommodated us personally also by our side trips to the homes where my grandfathers lived. My son was especially gratified that he could actually see this bit of his heritage. Most tours do not permit such flexibility. Your selection of attractions invites one to “do it again”. Once more, we thank you. Luis & Mildred G., Nebraska
Mel & Marvel S., Nebraska
Dear Peter, I wish to comment on your Czech Republic “Anniversary Tour” that my wife and I took in May 1995. It was well organized in that we were able to see a variety of sights as glass works, mineral spa area, castles, farms, town squares, etc. Your choice of eating establishments was just as varied. I’m sure that because you were born and raised in the Czech Republic helped in finding these interesting places. The flexibility of your tour allowed us to spend an afternoon at the birthplace of one of my grandfathers, plus the bus driver took a different road to go thru two villages where my grandparents were born. We look fondly on this trip as the highlight of our life, and recommend that everyone take a serious look at visiting their heritage. Thank you for an interesting two weeks in the Czech Republic. Mel & Marvel S., Nebraska
