Above & Beyond!

Brooke D., (trip to New York City)
Travel consultant: Nicole Blowes, nicole.blowes@blowestravel.com

Nicole booked our flights from Detroit to New York and she went above and beyond for us! We had specific places we needed to fly to and from as well as specific times we needed for our flights. Not only did she find us flights to choose from but she found us overall the best prices! She sent us with a care package with all of our flight information as well.

Nicole knew we were busy on our travel days and also checked us into our flights on her own time and on the weekend out of the office which was incredibly helpful.

She checked in on us throughout our trip and let us know when and where we had to be at certain times for our departure. I will never book a flight on my own without Nicole ever again because it was so easy and she did all the work for us!

AMAZING service. If you want to book a trip stress free, Nicole is your girl !

We Had an Amazing Trip!

Ashley & Brad, (trip to Cosmos European Tour)

We had an amazing trip, words can't even describe how amazing it was. We saw so much!. Everything was perfect and we had no issues at all!

We loved the tour and now the expectation for Cosmos is super high for us, we couldn't get over the organization and ease of everything. The tour director was so amazing and that helped make us feel comfortable. Hotels were great. Literally all in all we have zero complaints. Looking forward too using Cosmos in the future. 

Thanks, Ashley & Brad

Eastern Europe-Scenic Black Sea Explorer with Transylvania extension

We found the cruise very interesting and a little different. This section of the Danube flows through flat countryside so was less scenic than our Rhine cruise. But as most sailing was during the night this was not a problem. The section through the Iron Gates was more photogenic though short but followed shortly by passage through two large locks which were interesting to watch.

The daily excursions introduced us to the history of the region, sometimes from both sides of a conflict area as we visited different countries. The cities were all large, busy and somewhat different from other areas of Europe. Our local guides were always very informative and spoke excellent English though some of their accents were challenging. The lunch at a local home in Osijek was most enjoyable. We felt humbled to hear of the hardships the local people had experienced. Everywhere we went we saw houses where the property was put to good use with fruit and vegetable gardens. We are so wasteful here in North America! A couple of highlights from the excursions were Tito’s grave in Belgrade, which we visited on his birthday. It was very crowded with local people and it was interesting to see how much he is still revered. Also the visit to Ceausescu’s summer residence – such opulence and excess.

The Transylvania extension was a great bonus. The region is mountainous with winding roads and so very scenic. The Dracula connection was mentioned though very much downplayed which we found interesting.

The service on the river cruise and the food were as usual excellent with lots of variety in menus. During the extension, most of the food focused on local dishes and was very similar from place to place as well as rather heavy for our appetites.

Many thanks for your assistance in arranging yet another most enjoyable vacation.
