Wholesale Tour Operator | Destination Management | Bespoke Journeys We are an Experience Management Company focusing on Europe, and its unique regions and countries. We are not a travel agency.

But really, we are more than that - we strive to be the first thing that comes to mind when the soul craves an unforgettable, stimulating and lasting adventure. We ourselves are passionate travelers, regularly visit destinations, hotels and venues and are always on the hunt for new experiences and possibilities. Our trips resemble carefully crafted dishes, using the highest-quality ingredients sourced from the best purveyors for the right balance of flavors. Quality is our mantra; we seek benefit, not price, and find value in character …

Recently back after another amazing Custom Travel Network Trip! Bernhard and CTN always amaze me with their planning, attention to detail and completely wonder service and trips! Bernhard planned our itinerary, with my approval, and it could not have been better. We just told him we wanted to spend three weeks in Italy starting in Naples and ending in Lake Como. We saw so, so much and really probably would have never know to visit two of our favorites, Bologna and Padova. Every movement was coordinated by then, from plane tickets to cars and drivers to personal guides to rail tickets, everything was timely and perfect. All of our hotels were perfect, our guides superb, and our drivers prompt and friendly. As usual, Bernhard and CTN took excellent care of us. I talk to all our friends about CTN and Bernhard and just today referred another dear friend to them! I look forward to planning our trip next September with Bernhard and CTN. I can not say enough about CTN and Bernhard. He was available 24/7 while we were in Europe to answer any questions we had or to be of any assistance. Again, thank you for your excellent service!

I would have given Custom Network 5 stars, but due to some poor planning, how they handled certain situations, and were unable to setup a date/time to discuss the issues once we returned home bumped them down to a 2. I have planned my own and more complex international trips in the past, and with the amount we paid Custom Network we should not have encountered the issues we did. If they tried to give us some reasonable sort of remedy (which was requested several time) I would have given them a higher score since about 75% of our trip was enjoyable and had great guides. However, the time, stress, and disappointment we had to deal with tainted what was suppose to be a very memorable trip with our 80 year old grandparents. Reasons why they were given such a low rating. 1. PLANNING WEATHER DEPENDENT ACTIVITY: We only had one true weather dependent activity on the itinerary, the Eagle's Nest. That area had an especially bad winter, and instead of booking this activity at the end of the trip they did it in the middle. We therefore missed our ONLY "must see" sight in the area since the Eagle's Nest had a later opening date (I sent a list to them with the "must sees" and the "if we have time would like to see"). Instead of booking us at Salzburg (30 mins away) like they should have, they booked us to stay in Munich (2+ hours away), so we essentially wasted that entire day driving out to the Eagle's Nest (more details on why we drove to a closed site in item 3). Not only did we waste an entire day, but we were in Munich for 2.5 days where they booked other activities we did not request. I was originally fine with these additional activities assuming we would be seeing our "must see" site. I normally do extensive research when planning my trips (it took 5 mins of googling to see that the opening date is fluid based on weather), but thought since we are paying for them to plan it I did not have to. That as a travel agent they should know to customize their trips aroundweather related activities, however I was apparently wrong in making that assumption. 2. BOOKED ACTIVITY DURING A LARGE FESTIVAL. Custom Network booked our Nuremberg one day visit during the biggest rock festival in Europe where we could not see Zepplenfield (another "must see" on our list). Again, this planning was completely in their control, and they even told us in email that they knew the rock festival was going on. So I asked why did they not do Berlin - Nuremberg - Salzburg so we have a better chance at seeing our "must see" sites? They never responded to that specific question. It was hard seeing my grandfather disappointed that we could not see 2 of his big "must see" sights due to Custom Network's poor planning 3. EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE TOUR GUIDE: I have never seen such unprofessionalism and aggressiveness of a tour guide than I had seen of their Munich guide, Erich. I have been to more crime ridden countries and cities than Munich, but I have never felt more unsafe than I did with the guide they employed. His aggressiveness stemmed from me contacting Custom Network about why Erich drove us all the way to Eagle's Nest when it was closed. I pulled up the Eagle's Nest website while we were there and it clearly states they were closed (there was basically no one was in the parking lot so others clearly received the message). Instead of apologizing that he should have checked the website that morning to see if they will still be open he told me I should have "emailed Hitler" to see if it was open! He waited until we all got in the van with our luggage the following morning to go to Nuremberg, locked the doors, waved some pieces of papers around erratically, and was yelling at me that I contact Custom Network (this was only 7 hours after Custom Network ensured me they would go above and beyond for the rest of the trip...). We felt like hostages in the van going to Nuremberg, and were afraid he was going to drop us off randomly on the side of the road or start a physical altercation. We declined his services when we reached Nuremberg due to safety concerns and us not wanting to be with someone who was not mentally stable. 4. MONTH TO BE REIMBURSED FOR DOUBLE BOOKING: Our first hotel charged our credit card for their stay even though we prepaid for it. It took over a month for CN to "sort it out" where I had to follow up several times 5. UNABLE TO PLAN A CALL AFTER THE TRIP: Lana refused to setup a date/time to discuss the issues above even though I requested it 7 times over a month, but she would rather randomly call me to try and "catch me". When she randomly called me I either missed her call or was busy at the time. The fact they could not setup a time to discuss shows a lack of professionalism. When I FINALLY gave them an ultimatum that I was going to go ahead and write my review if we talked or not she then thought emailing at 5:30AM to setup a call at 10:00AM would suffice. 6. NO REMEDIES: For the amount we paid for we received no remedies

Dear Kayla, Thank you very much for sharing your feedback regarding your family trip to Poland and Germany. I commend your efforts as a busy student to take it upon yourself to arrange a trip for your mother, siblings, and most importantly, your grandparents. It has been a pleasure assisting you and your loved ones in making this journey happen. I am sorry your experience wasn't in line with your expectations. We do not respond directly to customers' online comments very often; in your case I felt we needed to clear the air, though, as you have made numerous statements that are false, offensive, and incomplete, and Yelp readers deserve to know the real story. Allow me to address your points one by one: "If they tried to give us some reasonable sort of remedy (which was requested several time) I would have given them a higher score" - this is blackmailing in its purest form; our Terms & Conditions clearly state that short-term changes in the itinerary due to weather conditions are possible, and reasonable alternatives will be offered. You are basically promising a better review if we send you money. SORRY, WE ARE NOT THAT TYPE OF BUSINESS. "We only had one true weather dependent activity on the itinerary, the Eagle's Nest. That area had an especially bad winter, and instead of booking this activity at the end of the trip they did it in the middle. We therefore missed our ONLY "must see" sight in the area since the Eagle's Nest had a later opening date (I sent a list to them with the "must sees" and the "if we have time would like to see"). Instead of booking us at Salzburg (30 mins away) like they should have, they booked us to stay in Munich (2+ hours away)" - the Eagle's Nest was supposed to open for the season in March when the bookings were made. In an email dated January 12, 2019, you clearly stated "Everyone is happy with this schedule". Salzburg was never requested by you as a destination, and scheduling a visit to the Eagle's Nest in early June - as anyone familiar to the area will confirm - is a safe bet when making arrangements in January. A complex trip like yours involves a lot of moving parts, and requires proper advance planning. Once hotels, drivers and guides are booked, they can't be changed around a few days before. Both, out office and our local partners keep track of any changes, and until the very last minute June 6 had been considered safe. At the time of your arrival, there were fifteen tour busses on the parking, as well as almost an entire lot of passenger cars, who incurred the same inconvenience. Our driver-guide, after you had declined several alternative options, still took you to Obersalzberg, a significant site in regard to WW II history as well. You and your sister were not interested in listening and learning about the region's history at all. As for Nuremberg, your driver-guide offered to take you a day early instead, but your party preferred to go shopping in Munich instead. Regardless you got to see all the important sights. The Zeppelinfeld - while being one of the most frequently mentioned Nazi-era sights by popular media (as it is often referenced by Neo Nazi groups) - is nothing but a large empty space and a grand stand; there is not a lot to visit there, and physically standing on it would not have tremendously added to your experience and understanding of 20th century history. More experienced travelers, including the majority of our past clients, will agree with me that sometimes you need to be a bit flexible, though, to really enjoy what circumstances throw at you, rather than limiting yourself to "Must-Sees". This is called the miracle of serendipity. "MONTH TO BE REIMBURSED FOR DOUBLE BOOKING: Our first hotel charged our credit card for their stay even though we prepaid for it. It took over a month for CN to "sort it out" where I had to follow up several times." - First of all, you have once again misunderstood this situation completely There was no double-booking, instead your grandmother's credit card had been charged by accident on the account of an unexperienced front-desk team member at the Sheraton Warsaw. If you as an experienced traveler had checked the paperwork on checking out, this could have been reversed immediately. Instead, this had not been brought to our attention until June 6, almost a week after you had departed. We immediately contacted the hotel, and set the refund in motion, which was actioned in due time considering the banks and credit card companies involved. "UNABLE TO PLAN A CALL AFTER THE TRIP: Lana refused to setup a date/time to discuss the issues above even though I requested it 7 times over a month" - This is simply a false statement, as we have given you many conference call options, and you never replied until after the suggested date. Thank you very much for traveling with us. With best regards, Bernhard Steiner President & CEO, Custom Travel Network

Moscow’s new suburban rail lines dramatically improve commutes!
The first two of the five lines of the MCD were launched November 21: the MCD1 line goes to Odintsovo (west) and Lobnya (north), while MCD2 to Podolsk (south) and Nakhabino (west). These towns are some 20-30 km from Moscow, and are inhabited by hundreds of thousands of people traveling to Moscow on business each day.
Vladimir Putin at the opening of the MCD.
Both lines cross over with central Moscow stations, as well as those on the outskirts. You can change over to the Moscow Central Circle or the metro (there is a total of 27 stations where you can make the switch). These changes allow for getting to and from the city center much faster and more conveniently than commuter trains.
Why does Moscow need the MCD?
The MCD will add to the function of the commuter trains, easing part of the daily burden experienced by those lines, as well as reduce car traffic in and out of town. The MCD runs every 5-10 minutes with only a four-hour break at night. The reason the new trains are referred to as Diameters is that they travel not just to Moscow’s main intercity stations, but also from one city on the outskirts of Moscow all the way to another one situated at the other end.
The service runs similar to an ordinary Metro, from 5:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. Directions are available in English, so you won’t get lost.
One important change you must remember is the Aeroexpress trains to Sheremetyevo airport now run differently than before: now one ride from the Belorussky railway to Sheremetyevo will take 50 minutes - instead of the usual 35. Also, on the way from the airport, Belorussky railway will no longer be the final stop - Odintsovo will. But there will also be a few new stations that cross over with the regular metro - in the Moscow City district, on Begovaya, Fili and Kuntsevskaya. All of these interlink with the regular metro.

The MCD trains - in accordance with the Russian custom with giving names of birds to every new train route - will carry the name Ivolga (Russian word for “Eurasian golden oriole”). The carriages are outfitted with bike racks, luggage and stroller compartments, power sockets and USB chargers with every seat, as well as free Wi-Fi - as is the case with all of Moscow’s urban transport.
39 trains are currently operational.
Prior to the MCD appearing, passengers wanting to switch between city and suburban trains had to buy separate tickets. The MCD greatly simplifies the process: now you simply need to use your Troika card at the MCD ticket stalls. There are two tariffs - city (38 rubles, or $0.6) and regional (45 rubles, $0.8; meaning cities just on the outskirts of Moscow - not the entire region). If you need to go further afield into the Moscow region, beyond the MCD, then your Troika card will be charged an additional $0.35 (23 rubles) to transfer to the ‘elektrichka’ (electrical commuter trains).
Switching between MCD and metro trains is free for a 90-minute window, irrespective of the tariff. However, if you don’t check out of the station at the exit stalls, your Troika card will be blocked, and require around $2.30 (150 rubles) to unlock.
You can also pay via Apple Pay, Google Pay, Mastercard PayPass and Visa PayPass.
Will there be other ‘diameters’?
Several more MCD are slated to launch before 2025 - the MCD3 (from Ramenskoye to Zelenograd), MCD4 (Zheleznodorozhny to Aprelevka) and MCD5 (from Domodedovo to Pushkino). Right now, the passenger load of the first two Diameters is estimated at 900,000 per day. All five Diameters will serve more than 330 million Moscow passengers every year.

MIRAMAR, Fla. , Jan. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) is celebrating two decades of flying travelers between Cancun International Airport (CUN) and the United States today. The airline is commemorating the milestone by giving Guests More Go with limited-time anniversary fares on flights to Cancun for a tropical vacation. The offer is valid for travel to Cancun (CUN) from Feb. 7 – March 6, 2024*.
"For 20 years, we've been pleased to offer our Guests affordable, nonstop service to Cancun, making the popular beach destination more accessible and affordable with the opportunity to save on airfare while enjoying more of Cancun's tourist attractions," said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. "We're grateful to Cancun International Airport and our Guests in Southeast Mexico for embracing our business model and trusting us with their travels for the past two decades."
The airline is also offering members of its Free Spirit ® loyalty program 1,500 bonus points on roundtrip flights and 750 points on one-way flights to and from Cancun.** Travel must be booked by March 15, 2024 at 11: 59 p.m. EST and flown by April 30, 2024. To earn even more bonus points, Guests can book their Cancun hotel or car rental through Spirit Vacations ® and earn an additional 500 points.
Additionally, the Spirit Charitable Foundation commemorated the anniversary with a donation of $20,000 to Keeping Kids in School in Playa Del Carmen. The sizable donation will help remove the financial barriers that prevent many children in Mexico from gaining access to an education.
Spirit currently offers nonstop service from Cancun to nine cities in the United States: Baltimore (BWI), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Detroit (DTW), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Houston (IAH), Orlando (MCO), New Orleans (MSY) and Philadelphia (PHL). The carrier has further invested in Southeast Mexico through Spirit Vacations, which allows travelers to bundle and save with vacation packages on Cancun hotels, resorts and rental cars.
Spirit will further grow its Mexico service this spring with nonstop service from Tulum (TQO) to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Orlando (MCO) launching March 28. It is the only ultra-low-cost carrier to announce service to TQO from the U.S., and the only airline offering nonstop flights from FLL and MCO.
Spirit's Elevated Guest Experience Spirit continues its commitment to invest in the Guest, which entails a number of initiatives aimed at delivering the best value in the sky:
- Spirit's Fit Fleet ® is one of the most fuel-efficient fleets in the industry, with many more brand-new planes projected for delivery in 2024.
- Recently announced more cabin enhancements with wider seats, added cushion, new headrests and upgrades to our unique Big Front Seat ® .
- Fast onboard Wi-Fi that allows Guests to watch content from streaming services.

The carrier was also rated a Four Star Low-Cost Carrier (LCC) in the 2024 APEX/IFSA Awards , which is the highest rating for its category and based solely on passenger feedback. Spirit was also recognized for safety with the FAA's "Aviation Maintenance Technician Diamond Award of Excellence " for the fifth consecutive year. Additionally, Travel Weekly named the Spirit Charitable Foundation a Gold Winner in the 2023 Magellan Awards for Giving Back.
