Germany Tour: Chin-Pin Yeo
It was a fantastic trip, and we attribute a large part of the success to excellent planning and execution by Umfulana!
I got to know to know about Umfulana from casual surfing on the internet, looking for an organisation that could help me plan a holiday in Germany, a task that I found to daunting to do on my own. Dr Jerry Crippen was very helpful and enthusiastic from the start, right from answering the first email enquiry that I sent from the Umfulana website. Every email enquiry was promptly attended to and the accomodation and transport arrangements were truly customised to our needs for a comfortable and seamless trip. My husband and I were initially sceptical that such complicated tour arrangements could be made purely through communication with a single travel agent through the internet, but the plans came through marvellously and with pomp!
We visited Berlin, Munich, Rothenburg and Heidelberg.
Accomodation in Berlin, Munich and Heidelberg was excellent. The hotel in Rothenburg was also very quaint and cosy. The hotels were all in excellent locations, esp. the hotel in Munich. Its proximity to the underground train station was very convenient indeed. Jerry was right that public transport in Munich was very convenient and we got round mainly via the underground train system. While we were in Munich, Jerry recommended that we take a trip to Neuschwanstein Castle with the tour company “Munich Direct”. I would like to thank Jerry for the excellent recommendation: Valerie Black from Munich Direct was an excellent tour guide, and the method of travelling by train and public bus was a nice change from the usual sleepy long-distanced coach ride. The trip from Berlin to Munich via the ICE (in first class) was excellent and constituted a very nice interlude during our holiday.
All in all, we had a very good holiday and will like to thank Umfulana and Jerry Crippen. We will certainly recommend your organisation to our friends and family!
