I will definitely use Hurley Agency and Lois Moran for any future travel plans. all went very smoothly. I was a little disappointed w river cruise.At times , it was a little too much like being herded thru grade school. We got restless on board. The rooms were excellent. 5 days would have been perfect. The food was good but not great. They would not put a bottle of wine on the table ,as 6 people were in our group we were constantly looking for our server. The servers were good and well intentioned but at times they needed more. Putting wine on the tables may have helped the service situation. I gave up asking for some different wines as really only 1 person was helpful and not really available. I usually drink max 2 glasses of wine an evening but I like to enjoy them.

We had a fantastic time on our Viking River Cruise. The accommodations and service were exemplary. Our travel advisor handled every detail with friendly, expert, personal attention. We felt like VIPs on the entire vacation. The Four Season Budapest is a beautiful property. They were nice enough to upgrade our room to a suite with a beautiful view of the Danube. I highly recommend Lois Moran and Hurley Travel Experts.

We found her to be friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I'm happy to recommend Hurley Travel and Lois Moran. I plan on using them again to plan next year's vacation!

Lois is extremely knowledgeable about the various cruise lines - able to compare and contrast for us with specifics. She can help you with any level of traveling - be it excursions offered by the ship or full-day limo service with English speaking drivers - she has the know how and contacts to make it happen! She is also incredibly easy to work with - she is there when you need her and responds quickly to any requests or questions; but is not in any way overbearing. We have used her now for several vacations and I highly recommend her!

Over the years my family and I have depended on Ms. Moran's travel expertise to take us around the world. Whether spending an afternoon touring the Vatican in Rome, an evening at the night clubs of Mykonos, or enjoying a relaxing beach getaway closer to home, Ms. Moran has always provided top-notch service. She handles all the details that ensure a perfect vacation: knowledgeable, friendly local guides, excellent restaurant recommendations, and accommodations at premiere hotels and resorts regardless of budget. I'm happy to recommend her services.
