Tour : 11D8N Great Caucasus Departure: 25 Sep to 5 Oct 2019 Tour Manager: Steve Loh (Xiao Loh) We went on the above holidays with EU for the first time & I must say that we have a very enjoyable & wonderful trip. The itinerary was good and so are the hotels & meals provided. Moreover we have a good tour manager in Steve Loh who is professional, patient & knowledgeable. Steve is a very responsible TM who took great care of all his group members. He also went the extra mile to wait for his group members to report on any problems (if any) with their rooms before he end his day. Thanks to Steve for a job well done & will surely join EU holidays again.

Name of Tour : 11D 8N GREAT CAUCASUS Tour Dates: 9th - 19th Oct 2019 Name of Tour Manager : Jacky Chew I just returned recently from the above tour to Azerbaijan, Georgia & Armenia. Very interesting trip, nice weather and we have a very good Tour Manager - Mr Jacky Chew. Jacky is a very friendly, considerate and helpful Tour Leader and during the trip, he took special care of one of our tour members who is an Ah Ma. He paid special attention to help her in getting around the places of interest and he is kind enough to distribute sweets to all tour members every morning. Prior to the trip, he shared with us, very useful information about crossing the border to Georgia. During this trip, He also extended great assistance in carrying her luggage across the border from Azerbajan to Georgia. Much appreciated by Ah Ma. As for the Hotels - we were not informed of the change of 2 hotels for 2 nights in Armenia nor the reasons for the change. This came as a total surprise to us. Very important for Operations Dept in EU SIN or the Operations staff in the respective countries to keep Tour Mgr updated of any change and reason for change and thereafter, all Tour members must be informed accordingly. We received the confirmed list of hotels on 4th Oct and we departed early hours of 10th Oct. Should there be change in the hotels, we would of course expect to be kept informed in advance of the change rather than on the night of check-in, we were totally surprised of the change to another hotel. However after much discussions, this matter has been amicably resolved. Overall the trip has been enjoyable for all of us . Cheers Kathy

Sep 27, 2019. I am David Sing Kong Yuen and am posting about my tour experience with Mr Luke Soh, tour manager in my recent 11D8N Great Caucasus tour at 1.30am in Ramada Hotel in Armenia, the last day of my tour. EU's tour managers are a hard-working caring lot in my several tours with EU. I have no complaints about them and I know they encounter complaining and demanding Singaporean travellers all the time. In this tour, I got an exceptional manager in Mr Luke Soh. He is highly energetic and caring as if the group were his family members. He ensures that the slowest walker like me with some knee pain do not get left behind and lost. He sang to us in the coach and succeeded in getting some retirees to sing. Great communicator. Thank you for helping Judy who injured her foot after falling down the cobblestone road in the Mother of Georgia visit. My most memorable incident was when Luke "ordered" the stray dog to sit in front of the group for photography. The dog did not obey him! I attach 4 photos for Luke to inspire him to do better with dog photography and keep up his excellent performance! I bet he will get high ratings from all the 23 travellers in the feedback form as none had complaints about his service. — at Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute
