We loved the exceptional service we received. You had our best interest at heart. We didn’t want for anything. In fact, we weren’t used to such great service. When it rained in Grindelwald, you did your best to come up with a solution, which we did enjoy.
I cannot think of one thing that would make my trip better other than extending the time to 2 weeks! I loved every minute of my trip. Still talking about it. I cannot wait to plan another vacation with DIGnGO!!!
You have exceptional trip leaders. Very relaxed with great attitudes. The nicest people!!! So easy to be around. Every day you planned so many amazing activities. I loved the beautiful and challenging bike rides. You really made this bike trip special.
We really had a great trip.I felt very proud of my husband and myself for being able to finish all of our treks. We “toughed” it out. We just received our “picture book” in the mail, thank you. We had a great trip and we look forward to booking another!
