|Eilene & Lit D.|
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for an amazing trip. Lit and I have traveled quite a lot and have had many good guides through the years, but I can say, without any reservation, that you are the very best we have ever had..."
"Thanks again for exceeding my expectations with this fantastic Tour.
You held my interest every step of the way, as usual - and inspired me to continue researching this fascinating and important topic. Hope we can catch up again soon."
"Very impressive. Thank you for sharing the personal stories about the World War II Veterans you have met throughout your Tours. You are truly inspirational - Thanks for keeping their stories alive. The Tour was fantastic..."
|Bob & Della H.|
"You let us see and experience all that we were hoping for... and you went so beyond our expectations. Unbelievable, Unforgettable, Awesome! Thank you for making this Tour so much more informative, exciting and more complete than we ever expected!"
|Ken & Sharon K.|
"Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge, experience and yourself with us on this World War II trip. The content and delivery of the wonderful, and sometimes horrific stories you presented far exceeded our expectations!"
"Only in the coming days and weeks will our minds begin to process all that we have seen and heard... Walking the beaches of Normandy has been on my "Bucket List" for many years. Thank you for an outstanding job as our Guide."
"These past two weeks have been incredible! I so appreciate the wealth of information that you shared with us on the Normandy to the Eagle's Nest Tour. This has been the 'trip of a lifetime' ...Thank you."
"Thank you so much for both World War II Tours, and all the effort you put into them. I really enjoyed them and I learned a lot... You truly are what we Aussies call a great Bloke and I look forward to seeing you next year in August for the Tour in Russia..."
"Thanks so very much for your patience and your gift of knowledge. You could not have made a better Tour - they are memories for a lifetime. Maybe one day I'll be back. Thanks again for everything and please find some time for some rest. You deserve it."
|Mary Ann H.|
"I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful Tour. It was the experience of a lifetime. You are a very knowledgeable Guide with the patience of a Saint. I have learned a lot and the memories will stay with me forever. Thank you again for everything you did."
"The Tour was FABULOUS! I loved every minute of it! Getting to some of those places on one's own would be a tough proposition, but with your help and expertise, it was a breeze. I would have to say that Gran Sasso was the high point, but everything was just super!"
|John & Clara G.|
"We wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip. Your knowledge of the World War II Italian Campaign is outstanding, and you are a great Driver." (Spectrum Custom Tour to Sicily and Italy, September 2011)
"Thanks, once again, for a job well done. The mountain-hugging drives, battleground commentary and superior hotels - plus the friendship are all much appreciated..."
|Bud & Sandra G.|
"We had a wonderful time and sincerely enjoyed the World War II Tour. You deliver an exciting and informative tour. Your extensive knowledge is exceptional. We will be happy to refer others to your tour."
"Thank you once again for such a wonderful experience both Lauren and I had on your tour, it surpassed all our expectations. We had lots of fun and met some great people, and you went out of your way to make everyone feel welcomed..."
"Thank you so much for letting us join the Secrets of the Third Reich Tour. I had a great time, and learned and saw a great deal. I truly enjoyed myself, and I appreciate the excellent job you did as our Tour Guide."
"You brought back the Germany of 65 years ago... of centuries ago. You took us through that time tunnel - thank you for that. And thank you for all the personal time you took in answering my individual questions. I plan to send you the information we spoke of..."
"You have an unusual key to unlocking some of these mysteries. I'm grateful to you for the study you have made of this - and for being the Confidant to so many personal stories. Thank you for all the planning and for sharing your knowledge with us."
"I want to thank you, and give you praise for a fantastic trip. It was so well organized, kept on schedule and you made it all fun. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentations at all the sites where you presented the history. Thank you again for an expert, professional job!"
"It was such a wonderful opportunity to go on this Tour, and to have such a great Guide as you. I already have the photos loaded on an electronic picture frame - I get to see them in rotation all day; you took some great pictures, and it was a most memorable trip."
"Thank you for developing, planning, and executing a magnificent custom World War II Tour for the Doherty group. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience sharing a significant event in American history. You are a true professional..."
"I have to tell you this trip exceeded by far my rather high expectations. You are a wealth of knowledge, a gentleman, and you take it the extra mile in every aspect. I certainly hope to be able to come on future Tours with you... Fantastic is all I can say."
|Lori & Weldon R.|
"This has meant so much to my Dad - and so much to me, to be able to be here with him. Your knowledge is amazing and I learned so much. Thank you for all of your efforts with regards to the passes for the 65th D-Day anniversary ceremonies - that truly made this trip one-of-a-kind!"
|Emily P. & Paul M.|
"My Dad and I just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful trip - we could not have dreamed it to be any better. Your enthusiasm and knowledge with regards to World War II history has certainly inspired us to learn all we can! Thank you again for a wonderful
and memorable Tour."
"The Tour was everything we could have asked for, and more. The hotels and meals were top notch. I think the thing I appreciate the most, is your professional demeanor and delivery. Thanks again for a great Tour and a great memory that Mike and I will always have."
|Mary Lou B.|
"As usual - you have surpassed my expectations! I really had no idea what Poland would be like, and I was amazed each day. So much to see, and we saw it all! Your Tours are so much fun and luckily everyone else that goes along are so fun to be with - I'll be back again next year!"
"The Tour was a great experience and as I already mentioned to you, better than anything I could have imagined beforehand. You went the extra mile on a daily basis and made the Tour enjoyable for us all. The detailed historical information you relayed to us and the special places we visited that other Tour companies do not, is something for you to be proud of..."
|Jim & Loraine K.|
"In our world, it is not legend but fact: Sie sind ein Engel, von Gott gesandt - You are an Angel, sent from God. There is no way to thank you, not even with all the chocolate in Europe. What we would like to do, is set you up with a 1,000 song iPod, and you can just enjoy it, both at home and on the road. Thanks for everything to our wonderful friend."
"I just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work you put into the Tour. You make it all look effortless. You bring History alive and no matter what the subject, you make it interesting. You pay such attention to detail and the group's safety while traveling - from checking our flights to taking us right to the line we need to check in at - I don't know of any other tour company or guide that would do that."
"I think this D-Day Tour is the most interesting and rewarding (Tour) because it was the beginning of the Liberation. Thanks for conducting this Tour over the first week of June - the anniversary date - and thanks for visiting Ste. Mere Eglise on the 6th of June. With the welcome the French people showed and the military vehicles on the beaches, one would think the invasion took place only yesterday."
"I have the highest respect for your expertise as a World War II Historian and Tour Guide. The high quality of your Tours have always included excellent site selection and commentary plus visual aids and top-notch lodging... but on our recent Normandy Tour, you set a new standard of excellence. I refer, or course, to the ceremony you arranged to honor my uncle at the American Cemetery above Omaha Beach. You secured the flowers, organized the procession, positioned the participants, directed their movements and handled the photography... you orchestrated the ceremony with the solemnity and dignity one finds only at Arlington. I can't thank you enough."
"I embarked on the Operation Barbarossa Tour as part of research for a book and it provided me with the moments and locations I expected and much, much more. Tony and his Russian partners are highly knowledgeable, friendly and ready to answer all questions. Our hotels were always great and even elegant - I loved the Intourist Hotel in Stalingrad (which is mere meters from Paulus' underground HQ!) - and the overnight train berths were a blast. We had great Tour group of enthusastic people whom I now consider friends. I always felt safe and well cared for on our journeys as we breathed in the sights and history of Russia... Way to go Alpventures!"
"Thanks for the great trip, and great time! We enjoyed your history lessons and enlightening us on the culture of the countries we visited, and of course all the things about World War II history that we didn't know or understand. It was great traveling with you!"
"This was my first organized Tour and I was very impressed. Your amount of knowledge on the subjects of World War II and the people and events surrounding the war was very extensive and impressive... I learned a lot. I have gained a greater appreciation for Veterans and I had fun."
"Tony Cisneros of Alpventures Tours does the preparation and planning to assure that the history is fully covered. His End the War in '44 Tour is highly recommended!"
"Your knowledge and the Tour was beyond our expectations. We will look forward to another trip in the future, and will certainly recommend you to others..."
|Cherry Alice V.|
"Tony, sending my deposit for your fall trip. As the other two I've been on with you, it looks 5-Star all the way!! Wish I could somehow show people through words how fantastic your Tours are and all the exciting and wonderful places you take us to. Everyone really needs an experience like you provide at least once in a lifetime and you have given me two dreams come true with a third coming up! See you in October."
"Alpventures excells as a Tour Company. Our 'Wolf's Lair' trip was very focused and everyone received close personal attention. Tony listened and reacted to our opinions, refining our schedule to best serve our collective interests. The local Guides were outstanding and very informative. It's rare to get more value than you expect, but Alpventures delivers that level of excellence. I plan to travel with them frequently."
|Don & Lyn A.|
"We would like to thank you for the time of our lives. The tour did as Jr. Deese said, Take our breath away. Tony is truly a gifted and sincere tour guide. We learned something new everyday in a very fun way. To sum up the landmarks, and views along the way, 'Priceless!' Thanks again Tony, you are a true friend."
|Melissa & Jordan B.|
"Once again, you have surpassed our expectations! Your personal attention to detail along with your enthusiasm, research and knowledge of military history has given us an unforgettable vacation, as well as an indelible insight to the sacrifices made for liberty... Thanks for the memories and always keep Didi close by!"
"The Tour was very informative and well planned, which I will remember and cherish forever! I thought the hotels, meals, and bus were excellent and I enjoyed Tony's comments along the way."
"Once again you have exceeded my expectations! I had a great time, I learned a lot, and I loved every minute. Your Tours are so special, I hope to get back soon - all the best!"
"This was the first but certainly not the last time (I Hope) that I travel with Alpventures. Tony and Didi did more than exceed any of my expectations. I traveled with my dad, a Veteran and Omaha Beach survivor and he could not say enough great things about Tony, Didi and our trip. Tony, your sense of professionalism is rare in an industry so crowded with people who just go 'by the script'... we truly had a wonderful time."
|Bob H., nevertoolate.org|
"I can't thank you enough for taking such good care of Robbie and Nancy. They had the time of their lives. Robbie said everything was 'top drawer' from the accommodations to the touring bus (and driver). He showed me his Commemorative Medal you gave to him at the banquet on his final evening. I think it means as much to him as one of his Bronze Stars."
|Beauford "Junior" D.|
"After taking a two week World War II Tour, I realized that once wasn't enough. The next year I went for two more weeks. Tony was the ultimate Tour Guide and our business venture formed a wonderful friendship. I can't wait until next year for my next Alpventures Tour!"
|Ruth Ann C.|
"Thank you so much for a wonderful Tour. You were just wonderful and so patient and concerned about my father. He talks to someone everyday about the trip! I personally have a greater understanding of the war and a greater appreciation for all Veterans now..."
|Chick & Darlene K.|
"What a wonderful Tour! Above and beyond what we expected. We would be very interested in another sightseeing trip in the near future."
"Thanks for showing us around. You and your Guides brought the memorials, buildings and sites alive, and to light. You have lit the fire."
