Very Professional

Viking River Cruises is not customer friendly. Without Lincoln's intervention on some issues the trip would have been unpleasant. However, the trip turned out OK because Lincoln saw that our concerns were resolved.

Highly recommended

Linc has coordinated a few trips for my husband and myself, along with a sister and brother-in-law.  Most have been cruises but this last one was a coach tour of the British Isles by CIE Tours for 15 days.  The pace was hectic although not overwhelming.  The room at our first hotel was small but accommodations got progressively better throughout the trip.  Some meals were provided but enough were left to us so that we could still fit in our clothes.  The most important part was the quality of the tour guides -- both overall and local -- along with the places we toured.  Our main guide was outstanding.  Our bus driver took great care of us.  A trip for us usually starts with me sending Linc an idea of what we would like to do.  His response gently guides us to an appropriate choice.  We have not been disappointed in any of our joint ventures.

Top notch service

Linc provided an excellent level of service to myself and my wife. His presentation of the trip on Viking was right on point. His support prior to the trip and upon our return was appreciated. Our thanks again to Linc and we look forward to planning a future trip with him.

Linc did a very professional job with all of us in his group. He was very patient with one couple That was handicapped. It was nice to have someone to do all of the planning and making reservations.

Allure of the Seas cruise

Overall, this trip was quite special. Meals, facilities, service and the shows were of the highest quality. I might point out that I've directed over 40 plays or musicals from amateur to professional levels over the years, and your shows were as well produced as any on Broadway. There were some times during the week that the crowds were a little annoying, particularly during meals in the Windjammer restaurant. However, putting up with the crowds was a small price to pay for the overall quality and value we received from this cruise. One final note: Lincoln and Mary Lee's leadership from the meeting at his house to the final day was simpliy superb!

Excellent places to see

Everything was well planned and Viking Tor was a wonderful ship. However, we feel the food could have been better. Having as the main choice for lunch every day macaroni made differently could have been changed for something else. They did cater the entire trip to our age group which made all the difference in touring the sites. Good Job

Our trip was wonderful and everything went as planned. All details managed perfectly. But we were most impressed by Linc's offer to drive us and pick us up at the airport. It was one less thing to worry about. Thanks, Linc.

Linc did it again, Great trip! Can't wait to book our next one with him. Ran into a problem before the trip with our plane reservations, and again Linc saved the day. We gave him our suggestions on what we wanted and he did everything we asked for, even drove us to the airport, can't beat that kind of service.

Planning our trip was painless and made pleasurable due to the assistance of our travel agent Lincoln Tumey. He is by far the best agent we have worked with. The trip was great and we had a wonderful time onboard the Celebrity Silhouette. Hotel reservations made by Linc were excellent as well. We will definitely let Linc plan our next trip.

LInc provided great assistance in planning our cruise, air transportation and many other important details.
