The trip was fabulous, I think I enjoyed this one the most. The skiing was tremendous. I absolutely fell in love with Zell am See...I enjoyed the Hotel am Stephansplatz. I was surprised at how big the rooms were. The staff at the hotel were also very nice and helpful. The concerts were fabulous, and the seats incredible. Thanks so much for your work on putting this all together.

Since 1987 I have trusted Smolka Tours with providing my choral groups with the finest in hassle-free performing venues, land accommodations, and in-Europe transportation. Traveling with groups of 50 to 100 people, the last thing one wants is confusion 3000 miles from home. I have always honestly stated that if we're promised 30 things on a tour, Smolka Tours will deliver 50.

We have recently returned from the Imperial Ball event in Vienna that was prepared by Smolka Tours. It was a magical experience! The tour guide was superb! The young gentleman who provided dance lessons prior to the Ball was delightful! Thank you and Kudos to Smolka Tours.

Just a note to let you know that Dr. Jacobs and his wife had an absolutely wonderful time on their trip. I thought you would want to hear that after all the work that you put into the trip. Thank you again for all of your work!

I called Smolka Tours when my friends and I wanted to see the famous Ice Hotel in person. How do you get to Jukkasjarvi, Sweden in January? The people at Smolka handled all of the logistics beautifully, including stays in Stockholm and Copenhagen en route. All we had to do was figure out how to keep warm.

The Elder High School Glee Club in Cincinnati Ohio, under the direction of David Allen, has utilized the services of Smolka Tours for 17 years, consisting of 9 trips of 140 to 260 participants of high school students and adults. We have had successful concert tours in Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ireland and Northern Ireland due to the experienced direction of Doris Clark. We experienced wonderful hotels and well planned itineraries at reasonable fares. When problems have occurred, the determination and experience of Smolka Tours to resolve issues quickly always resulted in our satisfaction. Our next concert tour will take us to France and Belgium. We are very grateful for the close relationship with Doris and Smolka Tours.

For nearly twenty-five years, I have come to rely on Doris and the team at Smolka Tours to make my travels special and memorable, especially when I’ve wanted to visit out-of-the-way places.  Doris and team have gotten me to the Icehotel in Sweden and to an off-the-grid ecolodge in Panama, to the “Chant” monastery in Spain for matins, and many other places big and small.   And then there have been the times when Doris and Smolka Tours have solved problems for me on short notice or in real-time, such as finding charming accommodation in the old city of Fez for seven of us on one week’s notice, or getting me to my European destination right on schedule after my first flight leg was cancelled due to an April snowstorm.  Doris and Smolka Tours keep sending me away but I keep coming back!

I cannot thank you enough for helping my family and me in creating an amazing fast moving trip to Germany. The moment we touched down we were greeted by Palvin our tour guide. The best way I can describe Berlin is history matters. We loved our two day tour broken up between East and West. The train to Stuttgart was perfect, but the hotel you booked us was the best. It was family owned and the people were so lovely. So quaint and I so loved the area. Thank you so much. I will be calling  you when we decide to do our next travel adventure. I booked travel on my own before and it was awful, I am so glad to have found you.
