Quotes of Jazzdagen Travelers

Carl & Gerry Ferri
Congratulations to all Jazzdagen staff on a terrific cruise on the Zuiderdam, thank you !!

Starting from the reservation, fielding my ????, arranging the ship transfers,
selecting a terrific ship ( a great crew !), your excursions especially getting us on the last one (you saved me from the dog house),
music was great especially the Jam Sessions and of course HIGH Sierra.

You all have a healthy & Happy New Year, until we see you again!

Alaska Cruise 2012
First of all thanks for another great Alaska cruise and activities in Olympia. You are still the best at planning all the extra's that make your trips so much fun.

Asia 2011 Cruise
Hi Alida, Pauli, Tanja, and Pieter (for the band)...I have been meaning to get a note off to you with these attached photos ever since we returned from that splendid trip to Asia with Jazzdagen Tours...

You truly out did yourselves with that entire trip! The cruise itinerary was ambitious but how we enjoyed it all. From the sobering poverty of Cambodia to that glittering view from our cabin window in Shanghai, it is all so memorable. Elephant rides, river cruises, great food, museums, interesting traveling companions, excellent music. Fantastic!

I must say that the personal tour by Pieter of that fine Miho Museum was a real highlight...only sorry we didn't have more time there. Of course we have always appreciated and admired Pieter for his musical talents, but to hear his enthusiasm about the museum collection was truly special. If that possibly could be topped, surely the Carillon-Jazz Concert at the Misono did it! Not only was the size of the audience quite unbelievable, but the reactions of that audience to High Sierra's up-beat brand of music were marvelous to watch. I have a choice photo of a row a grim-faced Japanese; then I took the same shot after the music got going. They clapped, they smiled, they cheered, they danced.

It's surely true that music is the universal language; certainly the High Sierra Jazz Band should be applauded for bringing their enthusiasm and talents to Japan. The special numbers by Howard (who can ever resist Howard?), and Brian and Pieter, using arrangements of tunes familiar to the Japanese was a lovely, thoughtful touch. Such talent in that band! Bravo to the Band and Pieter, especially; so many thanks too for sharing the experience with us. Unforgettable!

I suspect you will have a hard time topping this, Alida, but I know you will try with some upcoming trip. Meanwhile, our best regards to all of you.

Bon Voyage, Madaline Larsen
It's The Joy of Travel or the Triple Threat of Travel when you find a fabulous variety of music, great cruise package destinations and hundreds of wonderful friends all put together just for you. I found Jazzdagen Tours sixteen years ago and taken so many trips with them. I've lost count. Alida and Pieter Meijers and their great staff are the brains, talent and hosts that make the world travel experience the best available. As a single lady who loves music, and the opportunity to dance around the world, I wouldn't trust my travel planning to anyone else. Pick your cruise destination, your favorite band and top notch musician line-up, and your travel budget requirement and get out there and have a fabulous trip. You'll have your friends going with youon the next one.
