What customers say about the Route 66 self-guide tours:

"We just want to thank you so much for what has been a fantastic time for us. Everything went smoothly and all hotels were great thanks to you. We saw most of the road and we saw a different side to the US than what we have seen before.

Your arrangements were first class and we really appreciate the time and trouble you took to professionally organize a fantastic itinerary. Thank you so much Zsolt and hopefully we will meet one day." David & Tami, Australia
