Shore Excursions – Sage Traveling Client Testimonials
Overall, I was very pleased with the quality of tour guides provided by Sage traveling. We will certainly be using Sage for all our future excursions.
Tallin – Our Tour guide for this excursion was well-qualified and did a very good job. Her English was understandable, she described the attractions we were seeing well and she did a nice job describing the social, economical and political conditions currently present in Estonia.
St. Petersburg – Our tour guide for this excursion was very well-qualified and did an exceptional job. I’ve been traveling for about 25 years and taken many tour’s during that period. She is in the top 2% of all the tour guides that I’ve been associated with. Her English was excellent, her knowledge in the details of what we were seeing was outstanding and she adjusted our itinerary when necessary to meet all our needs.
Helsinki – He (the tour guide) also was very well-qualified and did an exceptional job. He also is in the top 2% of all the tour guides that I’ve been associated with. He was very friendly and sociable. His English was excellent. His knowledge and what we were seeing was outstanding and he did an excellent job describing Finland’s history and the social, economical and political conditions currently present in Finland
Thank you once again for putting together these wonderful tours,

We have now returned from an absolutely amazing trip – largely due to the excellent arrangements made by Sage Traveling!
All the drivers and guides arrived timeously and were always most polite, friendly and helpful. This took away from us all the stress of planning accessible transport and accessible routes into scenic sites. I will NEVER travel without Sage again and many able tourists we met on our cruise remarked that our tours were more comprehensive and informative than theirs were!
We had an amazing time in Istanbul thanks to the excellent transport and a most knowledgeable and charming guide, Nilay. She really made our time there so rewarding and she is a very special person who is highly qualified in all respects to be a tour guide.
In Ephesus, Tugrul proved to be highly educated and incredibly well informed. He really is a cut above the average guide and has a passion for the area as well as a most comprehensive knowledge of Ephesus.
In Corfu, Phillipos was quite charming and most accommodating. As he arrived early for our excursion (the ship had docked early as well,) we got a head start before the large tour busses and managed to see a great deal and enjoy the sites before the crowds arrived.
Montenegro (Kotor) was really quite spectacular and Sanja was yet again a most knowledgeable and charming guide. The only problem was that it was an exceptionally hot day and the aircon in the van was out of order – apparently this had occurred that morning.
In Coratia (Duborvnik), the driver arrived in a van which was not disabled accessible as apparently this is not available there. To his credit, he returned within 5 minutes with a large car and my scooter when folded easily fitted into the trunk of the car. If you remember, I did mention to you that this would be possible rather than a disabled van. We then enjoyed an excellent tour of the old city with the most educated and knowledgeable Tonka.
Slovenia (Koper) with Dejan proved to be a highlight! As it was raining heavily in Ljubljana, we could not do the boat cruise there. Dejan, however, immediately phoned ahead to see where the weather was more favourable and we then headed to Lipica to see the Lippizaners and enjoyed a coastal drive and a visit to the old city of Koper. He mentioned that John Sage had been there a few days prior to our visit and I really wish I could have met him!
In Venice, the accessible vaporetto is highly recommended and made our visit an absolute pleasure. It is extremely easily accessible and so easy to use. Again, our guide Francesca provided a wonderfully interesting tour of the Doges Palace.
All in all, I have been recommending your services to everyone who might need them. You made our holiday to be stress-free and highly enjoyable as well as being fascinating and exciting with the outstanding guides you provided. A heartfelt thank you for a holiday of a lifetime! Kind regards

I am just writing to say THANK YOU for organising a wonderful tour of
Ephesus. We had a great cruise on P & O Oriana and the highlight must
be the tour to Ephesus. The tour guide picked us on time and we had him
exclusively with his driver. What a guy, full of interesting knowledge
and so helpful. We got there early which was great as we had the place
to ourselves which was very different when we left. There was only 2
people in the amp i-theatre which was great so it was magic standing
there in 2015 and seeing things from centuries ago. We will certainly
recommend your organisation to friends. Thanks again, Regards

“I want to let you know that the Tours I booked with you for our Italian Mediterranean vacation were exactly what we wanted! The drivers and guides made our vacation the best ever. Even though it was difficult at times to get around with the wheelchair, it was much easier with a guide to lead us. They all went above and beyond what was expected of them. I would recommend every one of them”
