"Having JayWay plan our trip to Croatia ensured a seamless, well-rounded, easy-traveling experience on our honeymoon. They are professional, experienced, and tell it like it is—no gimmicks. We loved their approachability and attitude and would absolutely use them again and recommend them to others."

"We were so happy to have found JayWay during our research. We have traveled through other countries in Europe where we coordinated the logistics, but with little knowledge of Central Europe and the language and money differences we were uncomfortable going it alone on this trip. The idea of a group type tour was very unappealing so finding a tour company that would handle the logistics without having to travel with 40 other people was great. It allowed us to have the style of trip we wanted and relax and enjoy it without having to be concerned with the details. We learned so much from the local support personnel that assisted us and it really enriched the trip. Thank you!!!"

JayWay was excellent in that they kept in touch with us for many months exchanging ideas and making the best plans. We have taken 10 Jayway trips since 2007 so that says enough!! Looking forward to the next one. Health and the Lord willing!

"Our experience with JayWay Travel was so special, so memorable and exciting that two days into our eleven day trip we started making plans for our next vacation with JayWay! I hope that I never forget a single moment of our 11 day trip through Croatia; each one was so special, each activity so memorable...I can't possibly imagine a better honeymoon. If I had to choose a favorite experience, it would be our second day in Dubrovnik, we kayaked around the city walls and the island of Lokrum in the morning and then took our cooking class that night. As for my husband, I believe his favorite memory would be our Game of Thrones walking tour that included so much more history than we were expecting. "

"Our Lithuania/Latvia trip was exceptionally planned by JayWay and we were able to visit more locations than I thought was possible. The hotel recommendations were good and the trip recommendation to Curonian Spit and Nida was exceptional. We would not have known to visit Nida if JayWay had not recommended it and it was the best day of our trip. Transportation was excellent and on-time. We especially enjoyed the relaxing bus trip from Riga to Vilnius which had excellent accommodations. We wish to thank our guides in Klaipeda, Riga and Vilnius. Their knowledge of each city and comfortable friendliness made the tours a very fun part of our trip. We appreciated the constant communication with JayWay staff before and during the trip to ensure that all accommodations were as expected."

"This trip was one of our best ones. We loved Romania, especially all the guides from Raluca, Claudiu, Emanuel, Adella, and Paul. They were all so friendly, knowledgeable, that I hated to leave them after each tour. This  was our 5th trip with Jayway and it couldn't have been more flawless. Everything from transfers, tours, restaurants recommended by the guides to the comfort of the hotels was exceptional."

"It is great to be on an independent trip but with the help of people who are experts in the destinations, and who can help out during the trip with everything from a restaurant recommendation to if you have an emergency. Plus, it's very helpful that JayWay has select accommodations to choose from so travelers can stay at charming local places, secure in the knowledge that the places have been vetted. Saves a lot of time when researching pre-trip."

"We had a marvelous time on our trip. Our Croatia contact, Josipa, was always available to help us if we had any glitches.  For example, we had scheduled to go on a walking tour at 10 am in Dubrovnik.  We went to where the tour was to start but realized that we had the wrong time set on our watches so that we had missed this walking tour.  We called Josipa and she was able to reschedule our tour immediately to noon.  The walking tour was fabulous and we appreciated Josipa's quick response! You were very helpful in helping us arrange our accommodations, suggesting tours, and providing wonderful drivers/guides who were very friendly and full of knowledge"

"Interest and response of staff to questions and requests was outstanding.  Very friendly and helpful.  Their communications with drivers, etc. enabled seamless transportation and transfers. City tours of 1.5 - 2 hours were the right length with good informative content.  Recommendation for travel-day stops were very good. JayWay applies their knowledge of the country to help guide an outstanding trip.  Services and transfers arranged by their attentive staff are executed easily and on-time, making the travel experience easy and pleasant."

This was clearly based on considerable experience with each of the countries. We particularly loved the transfer service at each location.

"JayWay Travel was exactly what we needed in planning our vacation. Other travel agencies offered tours that included most of the places that we wanted to see, but we were not able to fit into their fixed time schedules and routes. JayWay offered us the flexibility that we needed. We had the secure feeling of being on an organized tour, and JayWay's scheduling allowed us plenty of free time to explore the cities as we liked."

The boutique hotels that we stayed at were very unique and nice, and they were all within close proximity of the city squares. Their expertise and assistance allowed us to travel with ease and experience Prague, Krakow and Budapest to the fullest extent. We enjoyed our trip immensely and would definitely recommend JayWay to anyone considering traveling to Central Europe!"

The staff person who helped us plan the itinerary, was enormously helpful, knowledgeable about how to plan the trip; how long to stay in certain places, etc. He was also very patient when we made changes to our itinerary and/or our accommodations. We literally couldn't have planned the trip without him. An enormously helpful, informative, travel service that is essential for anyone traveling to countries they are not familiar with.

The "little things" like delivery of ferry tickets that could not be purchased in advance and provision of a local cell phone ensured that there wasn't a single problem while we were on the road."

"Best traveling experience ever. Everyone was very helpful, we did not feel like tourists at all, never would have experienced everything we did without JayWay Travel. How wonderful it was that you helped me find my grandmother's village where she was born, and also finding a cousin of mine, and translated our conversation. It was a highlight seeing a relative of my grandfather, this man had pictures of my father as a young child in Czechoslovakia. Who knew that I would meet the grandson of my Grandfather's brother. This was priceless, and a cherished memory."

"JayWay made our first trip to Central Europe and the Adriatic a wonderful experience. From accommodations to transportation to restaurant recommendations, to personal guides, their arrangements and suggestions were outstanding. We'll certainly use JayWay again and will enthusiastically recommend them to our friends and family. On our last night in Dubrovnik, my husband, who's very particular and wasn't convinced that he even wanted to take this trip ('Croatia???') said: 'This was the perfect vacation. Best we've ever had.' Thank you JayWay!"

"Jayway was with us from start to finish. We chose them because we were unfamiliar with Central Europe, and before long their online resources and our private portal allowed us to plan and dream with excitement. Each step of the way, we felt cared for, both in the preparation process and when we arrived at our first destination. Each driver, guide, and on-site coordinator seemed thrilled to be working for Jayway and provided top-notch service on each leg of the journey. The private cell-phone, the frequent check-ins, the personal service: all made our trip easy and memorable. In many cases we became friends with our guides, who treated us as worthy travelers rather than mere tourists. I look forward to partnering with Jayway on our next trip and will recommend them to any friends who contemplate a trip to Eastern and Central Europe. Bravo, Jayway!"

"Great staff to work with. Everything went perfectly, drivers on time, hotels were just what we were looking for with great locations. Guides were fantastic. Everything went smoothly and it was nice to talk to someone rather than just email. Our driver in Budapest was wonderful. He took us to the train and showed us where the platform was and how to read the board. He went above and beyond when he saw my husband was nervous about it and actually showed us our car and seats. That is such special service."

"Another amazing JayWay journey. My wife and like to enjoy our travels and Jayway with your knowledge of hotels, restaurants, sights, along with appropriate transfers take away the stresses that can so often dimish the joy of seeing new, far away places. Darja was most helpful and has a genuine sense of responsibility and was great to meet and share lunch with.

Dear Jay, my wife and I will remain grateful for the wonderful experiences we had because of your efforts and those of your staff. It is hard to imagine a more proficient and concerned tour company."

''We would strongly advise considering JayWay Travel for the type of "assisted independent" travel we did - customer service exceptional.''

Your favorite memory or experience from your trip?:

''There were a lot of favorable experiences - perhaps the 50th anniversary dinner.

How thoughtful of you and company to make this dinner possible.''

"I am fairly independent and like to go off and walk and explore on my own. If you like this method of travel, JayWay does a good job. The staff in each hotel was very friendly and very helpful and Darja made me feel as if I were her only client. Very diligent in her efforts."

"We had a wonderful time visiting Poland, thanks to JayWay Travel. They took care of the logistics, such as lodging, train tickets & schedules. The travel itinerary ensured we visited major cities in Poland for a good representation of the country. Lodging was well located and comfortable. Airport, train, and hotel transfers were consistently reliable. Suggested highlights in each city and surrounding areas was especially appreciated. Travel options - from lodging to sightseeing - were very flexible. We highly recommend JayWay Travel."

''This is our first ever attempt to sing the praises of a travel organization. JayWay exceeded all our expectations. It advertises itself as being expert guides to the Baltic countries, and our experience proves that they are experts in their field. JayWay's agents placed us with guides who were knowledgeable about the plight of the Jews over the years. We also appreciated meeting Darja, and were pleased with the way she followed up changing arrangement when required. We highly recommend JayWay Travel to those planning to visit the Baltics with a theme in mind.''

"Your agency is so organized and while we usually travel on our own, all of the details that take us a long time to organize were so easy since you took care of everything.

"We have just returned from our Croatia trip and I wanted to thank you, personally, for arranging a first class vacation for us. Everything went off without a hitch and the tours, drivers and hotels were outstanding. I am so glad that I took your advice and did Ljubliana as it was one of our favorite stops. I hope to go back some day and do more of the country, so will be in touch when that happens. Thanks again, Sherry"

Our trip involved 33 days total. Jayway arranged for all but our flights. Every aspect of our trip was well taken care of and wonderful. The guides, excursions and transfers were well arranged without exception. Every question before the trip was answered promptly and thoroughly. During the trip when a few issues arose, our contact Darja, was readily available and helpful. We had a wonderful time.

"We had an extraordinary experience. From our arrival, when we met Kinga, a fantastic representative for JayWay, to our being dropped off at the Prague airport, we had memorable experiences in three beautiful cities. The itineraries were clearly presented and well-thought out by someone who knew what s/he was doing. Our trip was a joy. Again, thank you for a great time!"
